Tzai Entertainment released the beta of Shmusicup (we don’t know how to pronounce the name either) which they describe as “a hybrid of a rhythm/music game and a shoot’em up. A vertical scrolling shooter where your mp3 generates the enemy’s bullet patter.” Shmusicup seems to be an abbreviation for “Shoot Music Up”.

Tzai Entertainment does say they will offer the final version of Shmusicup as a downloadable.
You can access the online beta of Shmusicup at their web site url:
