ShootEmUp series by Creator/BizarreCreations, similar to ''VideoGame/{{Robotron 2084}}'', where you control a claw-shaped concave octagon in a quest to destroy many other shapes. Primarily notable for reinvigorating the stale genre and for having insane amounts of stuff on the screen at once (due to the minimal computational power required for each object). Originally an EasterEgg in the ''VideoGame/ProjectGothamRacing'' series for the Xbox. The series' second incarnation, ''Geometry Wars: Retro Evolved'', and its sequel have been released as stand-alone games for the Xbox360 Arcade. It also has a DS and Wii version, ''Geometry Wars: Galaxies'', as well as a PC clone (with more features) called ''GridWars'', whose development was reportedly stopped at the request of the parent company. It seems this was sorted out, as ''Grid Wars 2'' can be downloaded for free. ''GW: Retro Evolved'' is also available for the PC via UsefulNotes/{{Steam}}.

Added DiffLines:

* BulletHell: A variation. While there aren't really any projectiles to speak of, the screen tends to get insanely crowded with enemies, forcing you to use precise maneuvers while simultaneously destroying anything in your path.

* ThirdIs3D: Well, its not exactly the third game in the series, but ''Geometry Wars 3'' changes the formula up by adding SuperMarioGalaxy style levels where the playfield warps around several 3d objects while maintaining the top down 2D movement and shooting.
