Similar game recommendations please

I recently picked this up after me and my gf was simply curious from the cover. And, well, i'm loving it!
So i was wondering if anyone could recommend some more side scrolling shooters, i can't seem to see any. Apart from the odd couple of live games.
Ta very much in advance.

There are many good Cave shmups out for the 360. "Mushihimesama Futari", "Espgaluda 2" and "Muchi Muchi Pork & Pink Sweets" are all Region Free and can be easily imported from Japan. They are all vertical. Another good horizontal Cave shmup is "Akai Katana Shin", but this is Region Locked.

There is a sequel out as GOD in the US. But I think this sucks.

Besides those recommendations, there are also XBLA games like Trouble Witches Neo, since its also Horizontal, and similar though, and maybe some other XBLA shoot-em-ups, also, Otomedius Excellent will be coming out soon, its like Gradius, but with female pilots.

Been out of the 260 loop for a while but never knew we had so many shoot em ups to play! I'm so happy now Thanks!

Shame us UK guys get screwed over worse than US for releases, bout time they stoped region locking stuff.

Apart from the games mentioned so far Eschatos and Bullet Soul are two games only released in Japan that are region free.

And I agree with Rollie, the stupid region protection bullshit needs to stop. There are quite a few games that I've wanted that have only been released in the US and of course they're region locked.
Some examples are: Raiden Fighters Aces, Raiden IV, Otomedius and Deathsmiles 2X.
So now, when Dodonpachi Resurrection is released in Europe and not in the US, it turns out it's region free. Seriously, wtf?!
I don't wanna deny the Americans anything, don't get me wrong, but why the hell can't the games that were never released in Europe be region free as well?

Another game that I'd have loved to pick up is Catherine. I know it'll be released in Europe in a couple months but it's still annoying that it's region protected since if I'd had a PS 3 I could have played it just fine. Rant over.

there's an indie game in the marketplace called score rush that i think is pretty fun. My favorite shmup will always be life force on the nes though

Pretty much everything in this post, however Akai Katana recently got the 'Rising Star Games' treatment so now you'll be able to get it. DoDonPachi is already out, in the form of DoDonPachi Ressurection.
Just reading the date of that post I can see why the coming soon.

There's also Sine Mora.

There's a few XBIG games which are good shooters as well, like Wisp Lisp: Array of List and Shoot 1-up.

There's loads of other good shooters on Steam if you're interested.
