Shoot 1UP Brings Manic Shmup Action To Xbox Live Indie Games

Xbox 360 owners will get a rare opportunity to play a manic top-down shoot 'em up next month with the release of Shoot 1UP, a shmup with all the bullet-hell trimmings mixed with a clever mechanic.

The self-described "manic-yet-playable shooter" is from the developer of indie efforts Weapon of Choice and the forthcoming Grapple Buggy, focusing heavily on building an armada of ships that can give colourful bullets as well as they get.

Shoot 1UP's debut trailer highlights some of the gameplay mechanics, including two-player co-op, the mirroring "ghost" power up and the ability to steal ships from a friend, all coated in a thick layer of brightly coloured bullets. Keep an eye on the Xbox Live Indie Games channel in January for the game.
