Psychotic Software's Power Up looks good and you'd be supporting an indie

I'd say Resogun, but...(PS4)

The most amazing site ever if you grew up with an Amiga

On a related note: the current Humble Bundle (Mobile Bundle 5) includes R-Type and R-Type II for your Android device. Clearly the best shmups ever
Bundle runs out in five days, about 6pm next Tuesday.

Try this guys page for free side-scrolling/vertical shoot-em-ups with vector graphics:
games - ABA Games
I'd personally recommend these ones:
They're all pretty good "pick up, play for 10 minutes and then put down again" games and they'll run on ancient machines too (have them all on my 1ghz Celeron/512mb RAM xp laptop). As a fan of Bullet Hell games, I can categorically state that they get incredibly hard on the higher difficulties too.
If you want to spend money and get something with a little bit more in depth, get Jamestown. I think it's one of the best (only?) Bullet Hell games to come out in the past few years that isn't a remake of Ikaruga.

Despite some questionable imagery, Luftrausers seems okay. Hotline Miami?

Hotline Miami isn't a side scrolling shooter.

This is probably my fave:
Play Heavy Weapons, a free online game on Kongregate
But you asked for a quick 15 min game - you could easily play this all day...

True - but as as asked for side/vertical scrolling, top-down is ideal - it's both!
