Japanese doujin developer Astro Port have put out a two-stage demo of Gigantic Army, a 2D run'n gun that has you fighting huge robots (naturally) with your mecha. It reminds me a lot of Dracue's Gunhound -- though with much bigger enemies -- which isn't a bad thing!

While some of the text is in Japanese, it's an action game and most of the UI elements are in English, so you should have no trouble playing through it. It also features some snippets of English dialogue with its background communications, which really add to the atmosphere (even if they don't have anything to do with the actual gameplay)!

Doujin publisher Curious Factory has so far localized two Astro Port games, Supercharged Robot Vulkaiser and Witch-bot Meglilo, and also plans to release the studio's Armed Seven shoot'em up. If the company is still around, perhaps it will also publish Gigantic Army? You can download the PC game's trial here.
