Winglancer is one of those original shooters that was made to look like something from the 8-bit era. High frame rates, excellent background music and the sort of frantic gameplay we've come to expect from Japanese SHMUPs, they're all here.

Choose from three ships with different weapon and speed configurations to suit your preference. Most times I'd just pick the blue one. There's not much room to navigate around bullets, so every little speed boost counts. No power-ups to speak of as well, although bonuses in the form of twinkling stars can be collected to add up to your score.

You will encounter bosses at the end of each sub-area, and there is a boss mode for any player looking for a challenge.
