Coin-op side scroller shooter from 1986-1989 - Name Needed

Been in long search for the name of this game. Used to play it at bowling allies and gyms in late 80's

Not sure if the character is human or robot, but has either a jetpack or jetboots.
First part of stage is scrolling right, might be like a forest, shoot bees and insects than the last part of the stage i think is just one screen/platform with maybe a boss.


This post below is from another guy from another site which sound spot on to what I'm looking for, especially about the levels being different planetscapes.

Player is a red suited astronaut equipped with laser gun and jet boost jump boots. Side scrolling shooting platform. Gameplay: I remember bees/insects coming out of holes in stumps in succession and numerous robotic enemies. One stage boss was an angry brontosaurus. Levels were different planetscapes.


One game that sort of fit was Atomic RoboBoy, but then again not really too much like it.

Hope u can help, Thx.

Xain'd Sleena looks the one, with the platform part for the boss. Insector X also looks like a game I was playing in the late 80's.
Thanks both of you's so much. 22 years of not knowing has come to and end. Will sleep good tonight. Legends.
