Nobody? :shock: And I thought this was one of my easiest screens... small hint: it's obviously 8-bit, and not on a console.

Reminds me of Major Stryker on the PC, but I don't think that's right.

No, not pc... 8-bit computer, mid 80s, nice (there are also some good remixes around) soundtrack...

It puts me in mind of Xevious or Thunderforce, but I don't think it is either if them....

Nope. Another hint: a compilation/remake of this game has been released on the PSX.

:mrgreen: I managed to post a tricky one at last... there's actually a "hint" in the screenshot, I've blurred a part of it because it's the name of the game... this gives you the idea of how many letters the game name is.
