Tecmo Flying shooter arcade game

There is a pretty good arcade game at the bowling alley I tried today and loved. It's one of those vertical shooters I like and it's by tecmo, that is what I know.

It is from the 80's or 90's since it costs 25 cents and the cabinet isn't really new.

I realise I can just look up the name next time I'm there but I want to play it on here before then and I'll probably forget again.

First level is over top of a green field and you shoot general ships along with tanks and AA guns on the ground. The screen will scroll slightly horizontal each way. There are 4 powerups and when you see them they show the number indicated on the pill-like shape of the power up and they bounce around the screen changing the number every so often. One powerup is a spreader, another is an extremely fast rapid firing gun, another is a spreader with lasers on the side and the final shoots about six bombs out in front of you constantly while you shoot the regular gun also.

Level 2 is a night time levels above the clouds. I made it to the bosses in both levels. the first boss swung two arms around, that shot bullets while random bullets also fired at you. The second boss I actually can't recall, I know I made it there but there were two powerful ships zig zagging in front of it while I flew towards the boss. These two ships shot really fast and killed me.

So there is a lot to go off of there lol, I think this one should be easy :P

Thanks ~ Cam.

Re: Tecmo Flying shooter arcade game

I believe the game is Thunder Dragon:

Retro Uprising - Arcade - Thunder Dragon

You should have mentioned you were flying a helicopter. That would have narrowed it down a bit.
