''Burn the Trash!'' is a ShootEmUp made by Creator/{{Cactus}}, the same guy who made ''VideoGame/MondoAgency'', ''VideoGame/MondoMedicals'' and ''VideoGame/CleanAsia''. Quite an amazing game considering he made it in only 36 hours.

Equipped with only your trusty laser and beam, your spaceship must destroy waves of trash (which behaves mostly like stationary, bullet-spewing turrets) for as long as you can. There are two ships available, with slightly different weaponry, and you can switch between them at any time. Needless to say, the game is NintendoHard in some of the later levels.

Game can be found [[http://www.charliesgames.com/cactus/arcade.zip within this compilation]]. (There is also a standalone version avilable on Cactus's website, but it is an incomplete, glitched version.)
