I've found some awesome ones that I didn't know about but I'm sure there are many more.

So far I have:
Armed Police Batrider
A few Darius games
Don Pachi
Gradius 4
Progear
R-Type 1 & 2

Try the Raiden series, bro. Not all of 'em work yet but the ones that do are awesome.

There are plenty of other good ones besides. For the fun of discovery you can't beat MAWS:

It's great for finding out about games in set genres.

I would go with

The 1940 series 41, 42, 43, and 44
Cyvern
Esp Ra.De.
19XX
Ghost Pilots

Those are some of my favorites. I agree with Hierophant use maws to look up
catagory: shooter / flying vertical or horizontal. You will get a list so long you won't know what to do.

I went through the maws list last night and downloaded about a dozen. Having a lot of fun with DoDonpachi.

There are just so many to chose from; my picks include:
~Not Here Please~ Parodius
R-Type Leo
Blazing Star
Radiant Silvergun
Nebulas Ray
Twinkle Star Sprites (not the classic shmup, difficult to explain)
