Best Vertical Shooter?

I really feel like getting a top-down shooter, but there's so many! What are your suggestions? I liked Tyrian a lot.

Not gonna lie...it can be hit or miss...some people are burned at the stake...lucky kyper was released. If you like Xevious you'll probably really like Sentry Alpha....but if you haven't tried Blue Attack! yet, that should be number one. It's not a scrolling shooter but it is top down.....and awesome.

I would second on Sentry Alpha. If you want, you can see my iTunes review of Sky Force Reloaded where I do a comparison between Sky Force and Sentry Alpha.

Easily Sky Force Reloaded. Nothing comes close.
