    Hi all,

    I've been dreaming about the days i used to play a shoot em up arcade game but I can't remember what the name of it is.

    It's in the style of twin bee (screen scrolls from top to botton) where you take control of a plane and shoot enemies...

    Can't think of anything else to describe it... I'd a appreicate if someone could point me to an online list of games with screenshots. I'd know it straight away if I saw it...

    Thanks

    What system was it on, or do you mean an actual arcade machine?
    Suggestions: Plutos, Xevious or Goldrunner (Atari ST)

    Goto shmups.com and scroll through their review archive. A name might ring a bell.

    edit: god, I played the hell out of some Plutos back in the day!

    Dude there are just so many shmups it's hard to say without any more detail. It's like saying "Dude, ok, I used to play this side scroller back in the day. You were a guy, and you moved from left to right. Can't say anything else about the game though."
