Good evening!

I'm trying to remember a game from long ago.
It was a platformer, it was not scrolling but all in one screen (like tumblepop) where the player was some type of cactus, firing bouncing balls, and where one of the bosses (The second one I think) was a giant spider that spun web all over the screen.

Thank you! :mario:

G'day :hello:

That's good ol' Saboten Bombers, 1992, NMK. I knew straight away because I think it's one of the coolest platform run 'n' jump games ever!

:woot:

Trivia: Saboten is Japanese for "cactus".
