Magical Broom Extreme
is a freeware, open-source horizontal shooter from Japan, where the player controls a witch flying in a broom across the screen, shooting projectiles from its tip while carefully avoiding collision with all sorts of bizarre enemies and their incoming shots. Like in R-Type
and other classic shooters, holding down the fire button charges the special shot, that when released goes directly to the foes. Destroyed enemies drop the standard power-ups of the genre, like speed boosts, satellite spheres that orbit around the witch and attack the incoming waves of flying adversaries, and other upgrades.
