Hello people! I'm new to this forum. As an old schooler, I have pretty nice memories with those old fashioned games from Atari and Nintendo.
I've been looking for a rare game that I used to play back in the day, long long ago. No luck. The only thing I could find online was this screenshot from a YouTube video, but the author doesn't seem to speak any English:
By any chance, does anybody know the name?

Almost a year late (!) but the above is the arcade game 'Grobda' released in 1984 by Namco (part of the Xevious series I believe).

Here's another for anyone who still wants to keep this excellent thread going...

Nope. I'm assuming this is the CPC version, as it isn't the C64 one I'm familiar with.

You're right it is the Amstrad CPC version. It was also released for the Spectrum and C64.

A sequel came out on the Amiga, ST and DOS.

I think that will do for clues for now...

It's a real game, but you're correct, the graphics were unusually created in MS Paint!
