i'm trying to think of a style of game that i used to play in arcades.


they are like galaga, where your like a jet plane, and its an overhead view. at the end of every level there are enormous boss ships that you fight. they have ungodly powerful weapons too.

You've just described almost every space/airplane shooter ever.

While we're on the subject, can anyone help me identify this RPG? You're a young boy from a small town who sets off on a quest to defeat a great evil in the land. You gather comrades along the way and learn about trust and friendship.

That sounds vaguely familiar but I can't quite place it. Could anyone help me find this shooter? It starts out in a non threatening place where you learn the fundamentals of the game, and then you move on to an area of easy to kill enemies who come at you in small numbers. The further through the game you get, the more diverse and harder the situations get, and then at the end you have to kill a really strong enemy.

i asked for the genre. so airplane shooter?

That's not a single game, that's an entire genre.

EDIT: Oh damn. You totally did ask for the genre. My bad.

Just top-down scrolling shooters. "Bullet hell" is sometimes used to describe them, too. They don't always feature airplanes, though. Raiden, posted above, is a good example. Might also look at Raptor: Call of the Shadows.

Typicially they're called space shooters. I don't think the airplane overhead view kind of game was ever widespread enough to warrant it's own genre, though.

Bullethell (or Bullet Hell, I dunno the proper spelling) is the genre methinks.
