Melon Squash is a side-scrolling shooter that features stages like the ones found in Konamis' Contra series. Gameplay involves piloting a vehicle at high-speed, taking out enemies and blasting through obstacles to reach your objective.

The player can aim high by pressing the shoot key (Z) and up at the same time. Gems and power-ups can be collected to increase your weapon strength level, although taking damage will bring it back down again. A short jump can be attempted by pressing the X key, while tapping the C key will activate your special weapon. All four types can be accessed by pressing either the A, S, D or F key.

It does take a while to load, probably because the unzipped contents are actually 40MB in size. The download section can be accessed by clicking on one of the tabs at the bottom of the page.
