Retroshoot is a space scroll shooter type game. The ship follows your mouse as you dodge and shoot things coming down the screen at you. One nice thing about this one is that you don't need to click to shoot, the shooting is just happening automatically all the time.

The powerups are the screwy thing. You'll learn to hate seeing any powerups other than the gun powerup. Don't get me wrong, the other powerups have their uses, and a few parts feel downright impossible without certain powerups. But the problem is how the gun powerups are done. After a certain amount of time after getting your last gun powerup, the level will go back down. Which powerup you get is totally random, so you might get really lucky or you might get screwed. 20 waves in, you could have a level 1 gun or you could have a level 15 gun.

Still a pretty entertaining game.
