I liked this game long before it became famous with the "all your base are belong to us" thing started because of the interesting environments and bosses. Nice and simple scrolling space shooter, anything else similar to it? Ive shot my way from natols to gerbarra umpteen times and need something new.

if not, Jets N Guns is a great PC side scrolling shooter.
I put it here because i play zero wing and all old games on emulators.

Jets n guns looks fun, ill give it a bash.

Try Raiden 2 if you can find it. I used to have it on PC.

Edit: Hmm there's apparently some flash games called raiden 2 nowadays. Don't know if they're any good was refering to a real pc game I had (was also an arcade game at my college).

The Gradius games are fun and hard. Hellfire for the Genesis was real tough. There was Gradius for the PS2 that you could plan co-op that was fun.

You have to memorize the level to play this game well. Thats the point actually.
