Best Side Scrolling Shoot em' Up Game?

Hey I never owned any of the games where you move side to side well killing enemies. Got 2 bucks left and am wondering which to buy?

Ones I'm considering are:
-Inkvaders
-Zombieville
-Trigger Happy Christmas

Any others I should know about before purchasing?

Thanks!

Well I Don't own those 3, those are the main 3 I'm considering.
So they are the top 3?

Well I havent heard of many others that can match up to them. I'd wait for someone elses opinions though.

i wouldnt count any of those games as shmups... they are more like third person shooters...

I have Zombieville, Inkvaders, and Mummy's Revenge (or Return, can't remember).

I like Inkvaders the most, it's the most complete game imo. I'd say Zombieville and Mummy's Revenge are about equal for me, just depends whether I feel like shooting mummies or zombies

I wouldn't really consider them third person shooters... I think shmup is actually closer. Sidescrolling shmup is what I term them. I think of 3rd person shooters more as Terminator Salvation or BIA.

A third person shooter is Resident Evil 4. O_o
Those three listed are side scrolling shooters.

Anyway the best one on your list is Zombieville. Though OMG Pirates is better than Zombieville.
