Unfortunatly good and cheap are very subjective. Have a look here to see if anything sounds of any interest. All those games are still “cheap”

https://shmups.system11.org/viewtopic.php?t=59251

Raiden DX is my go to. £150-180 generally and it’s excellent imo.

For danmaku games, you need to go cave imo. Rizing games are better imo, but they are just as or even more expensive now :palm:

Sky shark is proper old school and still “cheap” there was a Vimana on eBay that sold for <£200. It was relisted several times before selling for that much

https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre ... 3546403894

Unfortunatly £100-200 is a cheap shmup

Hopefully it gives you somewhere to start.

You should be able to get a Battle Bakraid for that, or something like that. You get some pretty awesome games for 500 GBP

yep. that should be possible.

Dragon Blaze, Gunbirds, Mars Matrix, Terra Diver, Shenryu, Giga Wing, Progear great CAVE shooter, Outzone, Truxton 1 and 2, Mushihimesama and Ibara with luck. Espgaluda should be possible. or just buy the PGM conversions of Ketsui, Espgaluda and DDP DOJ BL. also Vasara 1,2, viper phase 1, Raiden 1,2,DX, kingdom grandprix, brave blade, etc.

Also on that list you should be able to pick up any of the Twinbee, Parodius and Cotton games. I particularly love the Parodius games. They look cute and silly, but are great fun :awe: 8-)

if I'm honest I've never been a big fan of the Parodius games!

Thanks for the offer Mantox, think it my be a little too much for me unfortunately.

PS does any one have any experience of the PGM conversion Cave carts, seems like a budget friendly way to get a few of the games.

Cheers

Yes and yes. Get them China. Sheepnova sells them for $100 shipped. You can contact him on eBay or arcade projects.

All 3 are good games

As long as the person that built them was competent with a soldering iron you should be ok.

Don't forget to buy motherboard(s) whilst you're at it. :D
