Help me identify an arcade game I played, trying to remember what it was called..

All i remember it was a 2D platformer cartoon-like person character which had a gun and could fly with a jetpack, I remember bosses taking up the whole screen.

It was strictly 2D not 3D. And was a scroller platform game.

It was played in a local arcade (Australia, Melbourne) in the era of '91 or '92

Another memory was it was similar to Willow but with a jetpack....

no car drive scenes, no sky diving or swimming scenes... I remember jetpaking around these large bosses, which took up all of the screen and you had back of in a corner.

Fantasy, with trees, no robots with metal walls

I don't believe it had a port and was arcade only afaik.

Apart from Willow like it resembles Funky Jet quite a bit but it's not that game

It pretty much looked like Willow You had a metal gun And it resembled Tonma arcade game

    Quartet came to mind first up but you've already checked and discarded. You could try looking at the MAME site or Abandonia (which has lots of pictures but may not help if arcade only).

    Clarification request on "no robots with metal walls". Does this mean "There were no robots. The game had metal walls."? Or does it men there may have been robots but they definitely did not have metal walls?

  • Sorry. No robots and no metal walls it was more like fantasy themed with trees.

Was it Space Ranger maybe? This was a game for the quite rare Amiga Arcadia system, which was a collaboration between Amiga and MasterTronic to create an arcade system with interchangeable games.
