Can anyone help naming an old arcade game?

I've asked for help naming a game before and it was solved quickly so thought I'd try again.

The game is from possibly late 80s, maybe early 90s. From what I remember the same viewpoint as Ikari Warriors and was also a shooter. One level that stands out (maybe lever 2) was completely black, you moved bottom to top scrolling vertically, and skeletons rose from the floor.

Thats about as much as I can remember unfortunately.

Would be good to find out what it was.

Cheers.

Victory Road the sequel to Ikari Warriors had mostly all black backgrounds. Not sure about the skeletons

Data East’s Dark Seal also fits that’s description but you play as a woman and it’s Medievil setting not military

Konami’s Trick Trap/Labyrinth Runner has these turtle things with skull heads that rise out of the ground

Spinal Breakers has zombie Dinosaurs and a later in a Egyptian tomb with skeletal looking things rise out of the ground

Heh. None of these seem to be familiar. I'll keep looking and report back if I find out what it is. Cheers for the suggestions though.

Maybe Taito's Kiki Kaikai?
