R-Type Total War

Steel Rain is a strange mix of management and shoot'em up. Basically, the game consists in a lot of levels where you blast through dozens of enemy spaceships. It's just like Gradius, R-Type or even Dodonpachi. But there is a twist to it. Once you've completed all the levels of a planet, you can colonize it and gain ressources and tech. You can even upgrade your ship and your skills. This is not something you see everyday in the shoot'em up genre so it's nice change of pace and it's really fun to do. Furthermore, the game looks beautiful and runs flawlessly at 60 frames per second. Steel Rain is a great game. Don't miss it!

Taking over planets is a different take on the genre but gameplay is mostly average

Steel Rain is a shoot em up where you are able to take over and colonize planets after clearing the area. Your ship has three different attack modes that have unique attacks or attack patterns. There are six different upgrades that change your shot type. Credits gained can be spent on different upgrades, skill points can make upgrades stronger, and once a planet is cleared it can be colonized. You place buildings on colonies that can defend themselves or research ship and colony upgrades. You are able to pick from ten difficulty modes per stage. The actual shoot em up gameplay itself is, unfortunately, just average, the graphics are also bland, but the soundtrack is decent. There are shoot em up games with better gameplay and art but this game makes up for that by giving you a lot of different options and by mixing up the gameplay more than most games in the genre. Worth a look if it looks interesting to you.
