Also wanted to add the Parodius trilogy is epic and basically a requirement if you are a fan of whacky Japanese SHMUPs.
The latter two games have Japanese menus, and the third game uses the SA-1 chip to decompress voice samples, but it's not an issue despite the language barrier and does not detract from the gameplay.

Ill keep adding as I think of them.
Jaki crush is a sick pinball game, love it!
Seconded. It is the relatively obscure sequel to Alien Crush and Devil's crush on the TG-16. Same developers.
Also there was a port of Devil's Crush to Genesis known as Dragon's Fury, released under the Tengen label. Dragon's Fury was followed by Dragon's Revenge, but it was developed and published by Tengen, not the original creators of the Crush series.
Dragon's Revenge is good, but as a faux sequel, it doesn't live up to the legacy of Alien Crush and Devil's Crush / Dragon's Fury, and pales in comparison to the true Super Famicom sequel Jaki Crush.
