The 'Horizontal Shooter with Boss' Competition ended a week or so ago, and you can download the top ten of those at click here, also click here is fancy and there's a fantastic remake of old Amiga shooter Alien Breed at click here
Ah - which reminds me - Remakes.org (click here) classic games remade for the PC - all free, varying degrees of quality (SWIV Decimation is another good shooter though)
If he bores of shooting things, and wants to try a point-and-click adventure then there's a few (ex-commmercial) to download at ScummVM (click here)
