After impressing Ludum Dare competition judges with Jackie and the Beanstalk, DrPetter is back with Shmester 5000, a horizontal shooter slightly influenced by the cartoony sprites featured in Alien Hominid.

Enemy sprites do not shoot, but you do lose a life by touching any of them. Some will leave behind flashing power-ups when destroyed, which can be collected to add to your sphere total. These spheres will circle around your character, and can be spent on upgrading your firepower by pressing X and the up arrow key at the same time. This action costs four spheres, although you can trade back for them by pressing X and the down arrow key.

The spheres act as a shield as well. Yellow spheres indicate that you can take one hit, red means two.
