POWER-UP is the modern-retro styled Shoot-Em-Up from one-man game studio, Psychotic Psoftware.
Spanning vibrant locations to a monster soundtrack, Power-Up thrusts you into battle with a diverse range of fighters, freighters and titanic level guardians. If you loved retro SHMUP classics like R-Type, Hellfire or Project-X, you'll get a kick out of Power-Up's slick, detailed visuals, challenging gameplay and impressive arsenal of weapons.
SYNOPSIS: The Earth is doomed! As you pilot the prototype fighter, Weapon-F through the debris of your vanquished escape shuttle you come to realise that you are the last human alive. You alone must take on the army of reptilian monsters responsible for the destruction of humankind. You alone must carry out your final mission... Revenge!

It remind me of old classic shmup games - not only because of graphics, but of many things. For example, you don't pick-up any lifes or you don't get any extras. There are no saves or continues. It's also cheap game, for something that was made by one person it's in my opinion amazing. Sadly, it doesn't have any options for change keys, resolution etc., but it doesn't make this game unplayable. Having controller will make this game easier to play, but it's not necessary. If you are into SHMUPs you can't miss this game.
