Need help to find and old game title

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
Hi,

I'm looking to find the title of an old game. It's a 2d game that came out around the 1990's and up I think. You control a little alien space fighter and you can rotate 360, go up and down, strafe. You can upgrade the spaceship after each level with new weapons, lazers, missiles, armor and special sheilds.

Your main ship looks a bit like starcraft zerg gardian.

You can shoot some piles of rocks to gain ammo or powerups.

I think it's a popular game because some people remember the game but not the name.

I really want to find the game but i can't remember the game title. I looked for name combinations like: space, alien, fighter, but I found nothing.

thanks.

It was on pc.

It's not the kind of game with enemy comming form the top like space invaders. You got to navigate to some kind of passages ; kind of tower defence path but really long and with enemy tower or space ship.

It not in whide open space. It's on a planet and you advance with your space fighter in the style you are progressing in the game fallout.

you two first wapon are come kind of orange lazer and some missiles.

no it's not an arcade game. In this game you have to crear a map and there is only one path. You pass throught the levels and upgrade your spaceship.

No it's not this game, the grafics a much more recent. The grafic and game date in the time of the first command and conquer game. But as i told your are a space ship and you pass throught the level with an areial point of view.

It's a pc game

The game play type looks really like the game Raiden as said SpookedJunglist.

Put first cnc game grafics quality and add some cheap 2d perspective and we got the look of the game.
