Play S.H.M.U.P.


Play S.H.M.U.P.

I noticed that Toonbarn’s Arcade Section has a lot of racing and physics-based puzzle games, and we’ve got the occasional rail shooter and beat em up, but there’s no SHMUPs at all. So today’s free flash game is an SHMUP, both in name and in gameplay.

The aptly named S.H.M.U.P. puts you in the role of a Helious Minor Solar System, which is currently being invaded by an unknown force stationed on the world of Coeus. As the entire solar system lie in peril, you are part of the cadre of soldiers who have mobilized and decided to take the fight to Coeus, in order to regain control of Helious Minor.

The premise is simple – you simply engage and destroy all enemy forces en route, which earns you experience and money that you can use to upgrade your ship in the docking bays. You use the arrow keys to move around the screen and the z key to shoot. Unlike bullet hell SHMUPs, your ship can take a few hits before exploding, and you are allowed to continue from the point where you died by trading in 1/3rd of your available Money and XP.
