Game Details

1 or 2-player co-op - fly jetpack/weapon-wielding heroes around scrolling landscape. Blast tons of monsters and big bosses in a variety of themed worlds (Orient, Egypt, futuristic, etc.) Controlled by joystick and rotary knob - shoot one way, fly the other. Excellent graphics for the time. Pick up zenny (money) to buy armor and super weapons at shops.

(Dan Wasson spent a lot of time as a 12-year old to win this one. His email address is and he wants mail if you know anything about this game or where he can find one.)
