Default Best Side-Scrolling SHMUPS?

Was wondering what your best side-scrolling shmups are. Im in the mood for some side scrolling.

Personally, I like Syder Arcade HD, Dariusburst SP, Toon Shooters and Space Tripper (although that last one is more of a sidescroller contained in an arena space). There's always Deathsmiles and older classics like R-Type.

This seems like a good time to recommend Apocalypse Max, with their promo and all.

Sure, but it's not Shmup...

Exact-Science, if you've got Gridlee, it's possible to use the filters to only show side scrolling Shmups.
Settings->Game Filter->Categories->Shooter/Horizontal

There's a lot of great side scrolling Shmups in Gridlee.

Examples are R-Type Leo, Pro-Gear, Air Buster, the Darius games, the Gradius series, Gradius PlayChoice 10 version is my favorite, be advised though, all Gradius games is seriously difficult.

There's loads more in Gridlee.

What? Those are probably the best two! Haha.

Here's a picture of a vertical shmup, Dodonpachi maximum when you have an urge for a good vertical shmup.

I'm looking for a good one side scroller shmup (not Bullet hell) that supports i5 devices. Just started Sine Mora and I'm finding it so far a little irksome due to the controls. Anyone know of Dariusburst is going to get i5 support?

Any new or hidden gems of side scrolling shmups anyone can recommend?
