Garden of Coloured Lights is a new vertical shooter by Linley Henzell, creator of Excellent Bifurcation and the popular Dungeon Crawl. The game features four levels, each with a different theme and end level boss. Sound effects are implemented in a very unique manner, in which every shot fired triggers a different sound based on their colours.

There are plenty of options to choose from, though your ship can only be equipped with a maximum of three. Some requires a cooling period to recharge, while others can be fired constantly with no penalties whatsoever. Weapons are upgraded by using them repeatedly, as represented by gauges shown at the top left of the screen. [download requires registration]

Same guy from TIGSource's 50 list. :)

Sorry about the download link though, I'll post a mirror as soon as I'm allowed to. (sometime tomorrow!)

The only criticism I have towards this game is how easy it is for the bullets to blend with the background and other ship since they lack contrast. It makes dodging them harder than it should be. Still much fun, I like to stick with the sword.
