I'm considering downloading this game once I get my next Digital Download Rewards $5 bonus eshop credit, but I would like to know if the multiplayer mode in the game is a worthwhile feature?

It's alternating play like the majority of NES shooters.

To blessed to be stressed.
80's music makes me feel fabulous.
I miss Japanese games, the good stuff... Games that are imaginative, have good and unique gameplay, a great soundtrack, and replay value.

I love those covers with "state-of-the-art" and "high resolution" nowadays people only complain about games lack those things :p

I was once a fighter in spirit alone, but not long ago I found something that was missing and became a fighter in body and mind too.
looking forward to Codename S.T.E.A.M.

The only co-op shooters I know about are Life Force/Salamander (which is itself kind of Gradius 1.5, making it odd they went back to alternating turns for the proper sequels) and Silkworm. Maybe Twin Eagle (licensed NA game, I know there's an unlicensed game of the same name).
(and Ikari Warriors 1 and 2, depending on what you define as a shooter. Though I hear neither is recommended actually playing. Ikari 3 is supposedly better, but I hear that one emphasizes melee combat over projectiles, making it more of a beat-em-up.
If one does consider on foot shooters, then Guevara or its censored NA version Guerrilla War.)
And Heavy Barrel, Data East's knockoff of Ikari Warriors that looks to be a better game than its inspiration. :)

Legendary Wings is pretty fun co–op shooter for NES. I hope they add it to the Wii U VC.
