This shoot 'em up won the ShmupDev 2006 contest to write a horizontally-scrolling shooter with bosses. From the title and story onwards, Prototype wears its R-Type influence strongly: put your prototype fighter into action against hordes of aliens and their crafts, including wall mountings.

You fly from left to right, your progress occasionally restricted by narrow tunnels and barriers. Your weapon can fire constantly, though by holding down the fire button/key a more powerful shot can be charged up. Tokens for enhanced and extra weapons are released by some shot enemies - there are homing missiles and powerful plasma bolts amongst others.
