Lots of 2D style shooters made the list this year. Shmups are back! Congrats to Nathan Fouts of Mommy's Best Games for winning a top spot with Shoot 1UP. Be sure to check out A.R.E.S. and Prismatic Solid, too. I believe they will be among the top 4 winners. I wouldn't be surprised at all if Capsized is amount the top 4 as well. JoyJoy and Alien Jelly also look great.

A notable mention that I thought would make the top 20, but did not, is Snailien Invasion: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dhlIjM7WKP8

By country, United States claimed 5 spots, Australia 4 spots, Canada 3 spots, France and United Kingdom each 2 spots, and Ireland, Japan, Singapore, and Thailand each 1 spot, of the top 20.
