Spies? Guns and Parachutes [Solved]

Can't think of the name of that arcade game you used to play? This is the place to ask!

Spies? Guns and Parachutes [Solved]

Post by slowdive » April 30th, 2014, 5:17 am

I have so many fond memories of old arcade games and I have found most of my old favorites through mame. However one title has always eluded me likely because I recall it so badly.

It was a side scroller and I recall the opening level/scene you were sky diving shooting enemies to the left and right with a pistol. Once you actually landed I recall killing people with a knife. The game was not unlike POW but I seem to remember the graphics were better. If anyone can work this out I would be amazed but never hurts to ask.

Thanks for having me here!

Welcome mate :)

That game sounds like Metal Slug to me.
