I wrote about GoCL a while back, but here it is again since Linley posted up a download link for it just recently. If you can't afford a PS3 for Everyday Shooter, then this is the next best thing you can get your hands on.

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.

Name: Garden of Coloured Lights
Developer: Linley Henzell
Category: Shooter
Type: Freeware
Size: 3MB
Gameplay video: watch

After many hours of practice - I finally beat level 4 on normal. Now to move onto hard. A beautiful game, level 3 and 4 are real treats.
