Shoot ’em up is a subgenre of video games within the shooter subgenre in the action genre. There is no consensus as to which design elements compose a shoot ’em up. Some restrict the definition to games featuring spacecraft and certain types of character movement; others allow a broader definition including characters on foot and a variety of perspectives. #ShootEmUp #SHMUPS #ArcadeClassic #MAME


  1. Eco FightersPro GearViewpointR-Type1941Some of my personal favorites here. Thanks for making these videos!

  2. Dammmmm where i can found this perfect colection?

  3. 4:07 is my favorite, there's something about the soundtrack that just makes me want to play it over and over again

  4. I remember a shoot them up game where the ship had three bubble shaped appearance and you picked up a power up the ship bubbles changed to that color. I remember playing it on a Mac with the computer built into the screen. Apple iMac 15" Desktop – M6709LL/A (August, 1998) I can’t remember the game’s title but think it was called demon risk. I also remember the certain color abilities can be more affective on certain enemies and weak on others for all varartions. Kinda mega man changing colors depending on what he using. If anyone knows what vertical shooter I’m talking about, please let me know.

  5. There's a sit down space shooter I clocked in 1982 or 1983. This was my only life achievement and I can't remember what it was called. It was 3d coming at ya, like Atari Starwars. Clocking a game wasn't trivial back then. Wonder if anyone even knows what it means anymore.

    I'm just surprised, where is Star Force by Tehkan?

  7. 𝓜𝓪𝓽𝓮𝓸 𝓻𝓸𝓭𝓻𝓲𝓰𝓾𝓮𝔃. says:

    Wow! Exelente video y videojúegos me faltaban muchos por conocer. Graciás

  8. Is this just the quality of the video edit or is there really an emulator that has all these games organized like this? I’d love to have this in my arcade 1up with this caliber of interface.

  9. What about Thunder Force AC, Daikaiju no gyukai, Saint Dragon, Heavy Metal by SEGA, Majestic 12, G Darius, Mad Shark, 1945 k 3, Pollux, Blue Hawk, Space Turtle Ship, or Flying Tiger?

  10. scramble (1981) was a milestone (way before r-type)… missing
    was for horizontal scrolling what was space invaders for the stationary

  11. What program or game is that? Or is it an animation you created?

  12. Some of these shoot'em games had some really strange names. Hotdog storm for example lol

  13. I just want to say how awesome this project is! Your video is very concise and the presentation is top-notch eye-candy!

  14. does anybody know the name of this one shoot em up where you choose from red blue or green planes

  15. Thank you for this video haha I was able to find thaename of a game I was looking for hahaha

  16. In Mame4droid Batsugun Labeled Not Workings

  17. Great video. It helped me finding the right game I had long been searching for. thanks a lot!! – from Asia 😄

  18. in the hunt de irem,thunder cross 1 et 2 de konami

  19. How did you find these games list and How can I find all Classic shoot em up games
    Can you please tell me

  20. I searched for a long time for a game I played in an arcade when I was a kid, but whose name I can't remember. Now I found it because of you. I won't remember anymore. Thanks a lot for sharing and hard work. ===>1992 TRUXTON II<=== 🙂

  21. Me being add bad, I tend to die alot on these games due to looking at all the graphical effects

  22. I couldnt find the one im looking for *sad pepega*…Its top down shmup where the jet fighter has charge up attack and bomb…i could only recall one of the fighter jet full charge up release a purple spinning blade. This one has high risk, high reward playstyle since if you are good enough to dodge bullet while charging, you can technically just keep releasing the full charge up attack which almost behave like bomb (without the invisibility properties).

  23. I'm looking for an arcade game where you have either this powerup or some secondary button where you fire a huge laser that follows targets.

  24. I didn't realize we had such an infection of shootem-ups like this….and i like shootem-ups but this is ridiculous….i feel like 90 percent of arcades were shoot em ups…..

  25. Anfang der 90er nach der Schule: Raiden Trad mit Freunden beim Dafny (Pommesbude) mein Taschengeld verspielt 💪Ich würd's wieder tun 😀 Klasse gemacht die Auflistung👍

  26. i wonder if anyone remembers a vertical shooter game. A ship collects upgrade into a robot with nice transforming sequence

  27. Looking for the game that I used to play. it can shoots some kind of blackhole when it gets upgraded to max

  28. I am looking for the game like the enemies are like kerokeropi, i really forgot the name and i have been searching for ages!!

  32. Hi bro I just starting to remember a game like these, i don't remember the name but I remember it have 2 aircraft and one helicopter

  33. how can i play this all again? pls help..thanx

  34. Thanks to this video I completed my personal collection. I was 9 titles away from a custom 100%, thank you so much for sharing. It spared me countless hours if not days scouring the web to find them, like I did the first time to grab everything I already have 😀

  35. I didn't see the game I was looking for. I forgot the name but it has a wolf pilot character and when you launch his ultimate bomb he'll howl and the other 3 characters are bald guy with a bird like plane , and a fine rosy lady , and a young taekwondo guy , and they have different special attack when you hold the fire button in a few seconds you could charge special attack.

  36. i love your skin thanks for the video

  37. I didn't find the game I was looking for.
    The biggest feature of the vertical plane game is that each plane bomb has different effects. One kind of plane will fly to a high place and drop many bombs down by pressing the B key. The bombs will explode in many places on the screen, and blast out many circular explosion areas. The explosion will last for several seconds. During this time, any enemy bullets and units will disappear when entering the explosion area. (Not 1945)
