I am trying to find the name of an arcade shoot em up game (vertical scroller).

The game is probably from the early 1990s or late 1980s. It had a flying robot that would shoot bullets (round bullets) with its one arm and had different power ups including a shield and larger round ball bullets etc. It is similar to the 1942 shooter but instead of an aeroplane it was a flying robot that you could move left and right with the joystick.

  • That's not a lot of information to go on. Do you remember anything about the arcade cabinet design, color scheme, sound effects, or other distinctive features that would help narrow it down?

Could it be Finalizer from Konami (1985)?
