A night for game lover at Jam

You are the last hope of your people. You must pilot the last ship in the arsenal, and you must take on the entire enemy army in a desperate fight for survival. You will be out-numbered, you will be out-gunned. The odds are stacked against you. But you will win.

Shoot 'em ups, or SHMUPS to the people in the know, are one of the oldest recognisable videogame genres. There are many types, from single-screen shooters, to puzzle shooters, to “bullet hell” or curtain shooters. Whatever the sub-genre, the basics are the same. 

The first ever game in the genre, "Spacewar!" was made in 1962. Space Invaders first came out in 1978, and quickly became one of the most popular arcade games of all time. By the mid-90s, SHMUPS were among the most popular games around. On this 8-bit Bangkok, we'll be looking at the last great golden age of of the SHMUP – the late '90s and early '00s.
