Lock In For Arena Based Arcade Shooters

Arena based shooter condense down the action so that there's constant combat. These are more survival challenges as you try to shoot everything before it hits you. Enemies can speed up or increase in number, and there are various weapon pick ups or upgrades to help handle the onslaught. Super Crate Box is a good example, and yet there are still different variations of arena based shooter.
