Can anyone help identify this game

Post by Randall Flagg » Thu Jan 19, 2006 4:03 am

I used to play a space invaders / galaxian clone in the mid 80s. It was an arcade machine, Basically you went left and right and shot up at the aliens but after a while you got robots walking backwards and forwards acroos the screen under your gun. These robots had spikes on their head that went up and down and if your gun was above them when the spike went up you lost a life.

Anyone know what game? :)

If you can imagine space invaders and then underneath your gun is a robot walking left and right across the screen trying to like harpoon you gun from the underside with this spike that keeps shooting out of his head.

Um.... I don't know whether I'm being a bit dense or just more hung over than I thought but no, I've missed the message somewhere.

Can someone tell me what the name of the game is please :D

Look, I asked in case anyone did know what I was talking about straight away. Yes, I can look on MAME but thought it'd be quicker if someone knew. I thought thats what forums were all about. If no one knows then fine. The only reason I didn't look on MAME was that people said at the beginning of the thread they knew what game it was.

If I wanted sarcastic comments I could have asked my wife, my kids, my workmates etc :wink:
