I don't know the name of an arcade game; can someone please help?

When you go all the way to the ground, your ship turns into a car and your seat vibrates. In the last stage, your ship turns into another special, different ship. The beginning story says you're trying to save a professor. You start at 'A', then go to either 'B' or 'C' on the map.

It was post 1985.

    can you tell us more about the graphics, was it 1980 or more post 1985 16-bit? Dec 8, 2020 at 8:01
  • It was post 1985. Not sure about the graphics. Even when you get hit the seat vibrates.

    Was it in an arcade, if yes, what country? How did the shell look? Real seat, plastic seat or wooden bench?

  • Any idea on 2d overhead or side view versus 3d into-the-screen?

I'm going to say it was Taito's Night Striker from 1989.

Had a sit-down cockpit cab, plot has a scientist and his daughter being abducted, it has Out Run style branching A-B-C style stages, your ship seems to be able to descend and drive on the road, and in the last stage you seem to have some sort of co-pilot with you, if not a different ship.

  • Nicely done. :)
