Question [Found: Blaster] Looking for an odd top down space shooter

Hello. I hope that someone here could help me to find out the name of a game I used to play when I was a kid I don't remember awfully lot about it, but here are some things I do:

~ Like I mentioned in the title, it was a top down space -themed shooter

~ It had bright, colorful graphics, which I think were meant to look kinda "virtual" (and not "realistic" in any way).

~ It scrolled vertically.

~ It kinda reminded me of Space Invaders in certain ways, like it could have been called "Advanced Space Invaders" or something like that

Any help will be greatly appreciated

It wasn't either one of those Space Invasions s: And yeah, I'm certain that it was a vertical scroller. Just probably not the most common one of them.

There's a point where you need to question your own memories, I was looking for a game for a long time and would never quite find it because my memories of it were wrong.

You said you already have gone through the entire HOL shmup category? Then you have to start questioning your recollection of it.

It was not Hybris or Frenetic s: But it's of course true that I could be remembering some things wrong, it was a long time ago and there were a lot of other games we used to play at least equally lot. Just seems like the one that I'm looking for here is the only one I can't recall well enough s:

It could indeed be a public domain game- good luck finding that.
