    My church used to have a table-top style arcade machine. The screen faced the ceiling, and the controls were on either side. You played a caveman who had to climb to the top of the level to catch a teradactyl-like creature to continue, collecting eggs and other pickups on the way. I want to say the game was named after that creature. It had a very ice-climbers like feel to it. Does anybody remember that game? Any help is greatly appreciated.

    I second the Joe & Mac idea.

    I used to play it all the time when I was a kid. Had the SNES versions too.

    Ice Climber was a console game (originally for the NES), not an arcade game. They did make a version in the Nintendo Playchoice arcade machine, but that was a standup machine, and not a "coctail" style, that OP is talking about.

    It didn't have cave men or pterodactyls, either.

    I think Wabo got it right... I don't know why I didn't think of it.
