Great controls, awesome weapons and power ups. I wonder if there are bosses.

Totally worth a try for free.

Nice pixel art, responsive controls, cool power ups, varied enemies, challenging twitch bullet hell gameplay. And it's free. If you enjoy shmups, definitely check out Hectic Space

Also I checked out the dev's game Tower of Words, which is also worth downloading. It's simple but cool, a mix of word search and Jenga, so you need to plan out your words extra carefully.

As Broxsta says: Solid music, pixel graphics and power-ups.

The controls are Drag-Up or Drag-Down, with auto-fire. I'm right handed, so I'm dragging up and down on the right side of the screen, ie: not by the ship, which is a bit different.

Games are pretty quick, at least mine are!

Free, with ads between games.

Looking at this game (and the one mentioned above), I like this devs spin on things.
