Sometimes games get canceled early in their lives, while other times they're considerably far along in the development process when the plug is yanked. Square Enix's downloadable game known as Project Dropship was firmly in the latter camp, as a batch of screens show.

A post on Siliconera shows off a wealth of screens for the game, which was described as a shooter in the vein of a space Western meets Smash TV. The shots show off a variety of boss-type enemies, mounted turrets, and more. The game was being developed in Square's Los Angeles studio under the supervision of Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles creator Fumiaki Shiraishi, and was to be released on XBLA and the PSN.

If it actually played as good as it looks, it's a shame that the game isn't going to see the light of day. On the other hand, Square probably had its reasons for killing this thing. If it wasn't any fun, for example, that could be a problem.
