On the topic of Phalanx and Xenon 1 i remember the first generation of shooters on Amiga was pretty meh, we had goldrunner, Phalanx, insanity fight, Phalanx II (a bad clone of uridium but decent music for the time), spinworld ("torturing disk", nuff said), a vaguely R-type inspired vertical shooter [which i forgot the name], return to genesis, and XR-35 an horizontal infinite shooter with good parallax and one of the first 16 color sprites but pretty meh... among those Xenon 1 was pretty advanced, despite taking its playability from the arcade Valtric, and i still think the dual land/air vehicle topic could be expanded

Not a Shoot em up fan full stop, but i did enjoy messing about on Xenon 2 , loved the gfx/music in it. But was bored of it within a day or 2. By the same token id no doubt get bored of Agony,Apidya,Swiv,Banshee,R-Type as well , so it doesnt really mean anything

Scorpio was a big fave of mine BITD. Loved it, and was able to wrap it several times on one life
