Looking for earl y 80's arcade game

I'm trying to find a game that was released prior to '85. What I remember of it is the player character parachuting onto an island. Looked like a platformer, and very cartoony. I'm thinking is was a typical recuse the girl type of game.

Do you remember anything about the theme or setting?

I wanna say it was on an island. I didn't get to play it, so I don't have much to go on.

Re: Looking for earl y 80's arcade game

This is a long shot, and a real long shot at that, but I'll give it a try...

Ikari Warriors?

Ikari Warriors - Arcade/Coin-Op

No parachute (rather a plane), sort of platform like (that's a stretch I know) and sort of cartoony.

Can you give an example of a game with similar cartoony type characters we might be able to compare to?

Reply with more clues if able...

Bionic Commando - Arcade/Coin-Op parachute in.

Commando - Arcade/Coin-Op Jump off a helicopter on the beach.

Pooyan - Arcade/Coin-Op Cartoony, you are in a hot air balloon.

Blue's Journey - Arcade/Coin-Op Cartoony, in the intro you float in on a balloon and land on an island.

Re: Looking for earl y 80's arcade game

I was looking through coin-op for something to compare it to and found Fantasy. It could have very well been this game. The styles are very similar. If anyone can think of of anything like this, that starts with the player parachuting in, let me know. I saw it once at a carnival arcade, and never came across it again, which is unusual for the amount of time I spent in arcades as a child.

Thanks to everyone who sent suggestions my way. I've only been here a short time, but I love this community!
