Why play shoot 'em ups one ship at a time?
Launch them all at once! Unleash an entire armada of ships in Shoot 1UP!

Instead of stowing each 1UP you collect, each new ship becomes playable immediately, resulting in an ever-growing armada of destruction!
With your home world ruined, lead your detached battalion's charge by destroying the mechanical-tentacle hybrid attack forces responsible for your pain.

  • Command up to 30 ships at the SAME TIME!
  • 2 PLAYER LOCAL CO-OP play for 60 SIMULTANEOUS player ship INSANITY!
  • Contract your phalanx to dodge enemy fire, expand your ships to fire the PLASMA AUGER!
  • WEAPONS UPGRADE as you collect more ships (And they downgrade when you lose them so stay sharp!)
  • Sacrifice ships for a BULLET-VAPORIZING BOMB which increases in power the more ships you've collected!
  • Manic Shooting without all the wailing and gnashing of teeth--NORMAL GAMERS can actually enjoy this!
  • Hardcore? Crank up the difficulty and gameplay speed for THUMB-TWISTING manuevers!
  • Classic shmup design - six levels of alien lands ready for you to get your revenge!
  • New for Steam version - Steam Leaderboards, Steam Achievements, Trading Cards, remappable keyboard controls, and more!

Shoot 1UP reviews and comments

Translated by
Microsoft from French
Game pretty fast and very simpa to play! One life for you to make a whole Armada, the challenge is bold but very well realized! shoot em up very conventional in the whole but excellent idea to add lives that are ships that add to your firepower! interest: 15/20 realization: 13/20

Shoot 1UP was a pretty decent shoot them up on Windows phone, but there its feared.... Negatives:-graphics not at all optimized for a computer display (basically they magniish the pixels for desktop)-banal sound atmosphere-non-existent action-waves of enemies blur-catastrophic gameplay positives:-null Conclusion: shoot 1UP is absolutely not designed for desktop, the graphics are "disgusting" (sorry) do not buy this game at the end of life...

Shoot them up 2D with vertical tracking (scrolling), with graphics years 80 Recalling appreciably what was done on Commodore 64, Atari ST or Amiga, garish colors reminiscent of the comic SF in colors of the same time, type metal Howlant, shoot 1 up offers play not with a ship but several (for my part, I managed to go up to 25 ships) ships that you can recover by taking the corresponding bonus, besides there is only one, except the points to collect, but the more ships you have, the more powerful you are in shooting, of course, and you will have shooting angles. The design of the fleet is based on a deployment or concentration that you can adjust, knowing that when you dismiss your ships, there is more risk of losing, but at the center of the training you will have a very powerful laser that will form. A bonus also allows you to have a ghost of your squad. With 25 ships multiplied by two at a given time of the game, nothing on the screen allowed to come to tickle you. The action is dense but, it must be known, very short. It is to the extent of the shoot them up of the same time in the Arcade: the Raiden fighters or strikers were in rather short but very intense effects. That is why, if you know this type of game, you will play as an expert, and not as a novice or normal, because you will then end the game very quickly... without having to "continue" a part. The gameplay is very good and I do not understand a criticism that said otherwise. In short, at all good, to buy at a small price however, because its design is purely and simply a 25 year old good back and that it could have become a freeware as the excellent Choren 68k which, if you do not knowit , is a shoot them up appeared about 20 years ago and that was free, pixelated but from the fire of God: the shoot them up par excellence.
