Looking for a game! Like Ikari Warriors


Recommended Posts

My goal was to purchase a couple stand-ups to accommodate my new store (coming in June). I have been able to get a couple (Ninja Gaiden and Rastan - paid $300 total), but I can not remember the name of my favorite game.


It played exactly like Ikari Warriors (and I actually thought it was just Ikari Warriors 2). It had an original name though... but the 2 Ikari Warrior guys were in it and it used the 360 degree joystick and fire/grenade buttons.


Anyone have any idea? (probably around 1984 or so)


BTW, I'm also planning to get Police Trainer and/or Area 51 (modern) and Arkanoid and Galaga 88 and/or Raiden.


Edit: I also remember getting stuck at this one end boss where you had to throw grenades ito the mouth of this moster to beat it...

No, but those were all VERY close. I see now that this was a rather difficult question to answer and I appreciate the effort you went through. Thanks.


It seems like you were fighting mosters... as the creature I couldn't pass was a thing that you had to use super grenades to throw in its mouth... which wasn't always open...


AAAARGH! Why can't I remember???

I just read your last sentence (thought it was a signature line). YES!!


That's it!! HA! you found it thank you!


Now, my christmas present to me is buying this game! (Watch it'll be mega rare...)


Heh, thanks again...


Now, I know why it looked so much like Ikari Warriors...

At least it's Jamma hardware, no problem finding cabinets.

There's a few up on Ebay, but I'd check local vendors to see if they've got a junker.

BTW Both of your other games are Jamma as well, so you could swap one out in the meantime.
