Psichodelya is a vertical shoot-em-up (aka SHMUP) game set in futuristic environmet where two races of mechanized alien species are waging air warfare over Earth-like pieces of land. Player controls one of 3 playable ships, dodging heaps of bullets and killing wave after wave of enemies for points in single or 2 player local coop, over 5 levels culminating with epic bosses. Psichodelya is special because in this game player ship has a colored shied that protects from a numeber of bullets from the same color as the shield, and at the same time enemy ships are also color coded, making them more vulnerable to one type of damage.

There is a YouTube challenge if you think you're up for it, described on the download page.
Overall I'm pretty happy with how it turned out. It's challenging, fast but not brutal. The controls are smooth and there's the whole feeling of how the ship is a bit heavy, but still controllable. I'd say it's nicely varied. There's not too many 'popcorn' enemies.
Actually, let me show you how it really looks, there's a play online, but watching is very different from playing:
Anyway, we also have a new team member. He'll make a great addition to our team, so you can expect even shinier backgrounds :)
I have a question for visitors: when was the last time you saw a shmup with this much style?
Here are a few images:
