At your behest, I've added it to my respective wishlists; neat that it exists in 2 separate places as DRM-free. A lot of times, when I see things like this, it comes off as a big nostalgia grab, and I question the quality of the actual content, and this was a particularly ugly era. But hey, you couldn't have hit the nail harder on the head with Islands, so I'm in.

I've looked into it a bit, but is it good? I love Broken Reality, but I'm not sure if this is that. I'm not terribly fond of that era of Internet culture, so I didn't see anything to really hook me.

I don't think I noticed how much harder Tyrian 2000 got, because I was focused on how BATSHIT INSANE it got; that final boss... It actually came up in my playlist at work the other day; I thought of you immediately.

That's a thing I can get into; I'm not fantastic at the genre, but if I can see SOME kind of progress while I'm... *sigh* ...gittin' gud, then it's not quite so frustrating. And I'll roll that right into some recommendations: Meltdown and Seraph, both on Steam, and nowhere else that I could find... I think Meltdown might be on mobile, if that makes a difference.

Anyway, Meltdown is a Twin Stick Shooter, except that they're fraternal twins; the controls are actually pretty solid. You find money and chips that you use to purchase and upgrade gear, but it's mostly blowing up robots with submachine guns, shogtuns, flame throwers; you name it. You also get some pretty damn fun melee weapons, like a fire axe or a big wrench. All the different gear has different perks - some make your rocket launcher stronger; some boost melee attacks, etc. - and you can mix and match almost exactly as you please; some neurotic bitch wrote a guide for it on Steam, if you want the specifics. You have to pay attention in the later levels, lest you get your ass fried, but it is DAMN mindless, aside from reflexes.

Seraph has a similar kind of progression, and if you want something that's got some longevity, I've put almost 140 hours into it. ONE HUNDRED FORTY! That's more than I've put into Yakuza Zero! This one's a bit more like if Devil May Cry 3 got stuck on Gunslinger Style and got slammed into Mega Man X...5 or so. Targeting is automatic, and it works very well; very rarely am I aiming at something unless I want to be. You have twin pistols with infinite ammo that can aim independently of each other, and one of 6 subweapons, which include shotguns, assault rifles, and railguns. You can also find wards to increase your defense or max HP until they break, and you get 2 miracles, which are basically 1-shot spells with a few seconds of cooldown before you can use them again. All of this can be upgraded with in-game currency, as well as transmutation components that are dropped by enemies. You can also find shards, which are used mostly to equip onto perks to make them happen; the better the shard, the more the bonus. Takes a lot of skill with double jumps in addition to DOUBLE INVINCIBLE AIR DASHES, but otherwise very mindless; almost meditative.

My 2000s background in browser games is pretty heavily tied to late 2000 and early 2001; PlantWorld is my shit, and I wish I could find it again. I do at least have an offline copy of Graal. I actually just got that running on my new beast, so good times.

How is it for spazzes who aren't the best at Scrolling Shooters, though? Tyrian 2000 was perfect, but I'm always nervous around games like these, because I'm not terrific at them. The looty aspect of that gives me hope; that usually means that you can, with enough patience, beef your way through it.

Oh hey! I've had my eye on Sector Six; how is it?
You are yourself. There's no one else you could be.
