Carrier Air Wing is the sequel, and isn't quite as good as UN Squadron/Area 88 IMO (I don't like the fuel continualy dropping even if you don't get hit in CAW). The SNES version is pretty different to the arcade one as well, IIRC.

- Radiant Silvergun (MAME, ST-V, Saturn)
- Gradius 5 (PS2, PCSX2)

Marvels, and the longest shooters ever ! The games are about an hour easily (without counting loops where G5 has 10 loops) to finish.
