Are there any shooters better than Xevious on the 3ds or ds?

Metal Torrent on dsiware. It's a 5 stage score attack, but I've had it since release and I'll play through it ever other day or so. Two different ships, and the enemy formations can be set to patterns, or random. One of my top 5 downloadable games.
hardcore about the casual.

TwinBee is going to be released as one of the "3D Classics" in the near future. I don't think it was ever released in the US before, but it's sequel, Stinger, was a pretty good shooter on the NES. I'm certain it will be better than Xevious, which is still pretty mediocre IMO even with the 3D upgrade.

So the ds was pretty mediocre for shooters, huh?

I've got to say, I've become super addicted to Xevious. It might not be your worst choice.

I'd recommend:

99Bullets DSiware
Metal Torrent DSiware (insane mode only, other mode is way too easy)
Ketsui DS (stupid expensive though)
