Tyrian is without question one of the best top-scrolling shooters to ever exist on the PC, standing among the likes of Raptor and Raiden 2. Tyrian differs from the competition with its story-intensive single player campaign and RPG-like elements, as players can upgrade their craft with all kinds of weaponry. Players can even ditch their existing craft for all new ships. Thanks to the open sourcing of the game, fans have made it possible to play Tyrian natively on both Windows and OSX platforms in high resolution.
