Looking for these...

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

Looking for these...

Post by someguy94 » April 29th, 2015, 5:11 pm

Hi guys! I saw that some of you are really expert! I could find some of the games i was looking for just reading other threads! :D
Ok, there is what im looking for:
The first game is a classic 2d scrolling shooter, the character wears some kind of armor thing, and can pick up weapons from the ground, when the magazine is over, he just throws the weapon at the enemies...if i remember well the first level was inside a forest...kind of.
The second is a rail shooter, you are a cop and the thugs throw at you molotovs and things like that...i don't know what else to say about this XD
There is a last one but i forgot it...if i remember i will edit this post.
Thanks in advance... :hello:

if im right, it had a orangish armor, with helmet. And he could lose it if hit by an enemy. Safe to say it's after the 90s...

Hi someguy94, nice to meet you.

One rail shooter when the enemies throws molotov at you is "Lucky & Wild" but I guess this game is not what you are looking for since in "Lucky & Wild" you drive a car while shooting enemies, and I think you would remember that :P. Do you remember if the game had digitized graphics (like Lethal Enforcers) or "drawn" graphics (like Zombie Raid)?

About the 2D scrolling shooter... That kind of sounded like "Thunder Fox" except for the armor part...

Nope :(
More modern. More "metal slug" kind of game.

I searched "lethal enforcers" on youtube. It is so similar to the one i meant that i got the right game in the related videos...the game is "under fire" :)

The first game that came to mind when I read about armoured guys in a forest was Gun Force.

There is also a sequel, Gun Force 2.

The similarities to Metal Slug are strong because some staff left Irem and formed Nazca, then got picked up by SNK and developed their Gun Force ideas into the Metal Slug we know and love.

Too much metal slug xD. The game im talking about had (i think) better graphics than both of these games. From the fact that you could take a weapon from the ground, shoot it , leave it or just throw it is making me think that maybe it was also some kind of scrolling beat em up/shooter hybrid.
