      I only saw this in person once, in Atlantic City a
      When my Dad dropped me off in the arcade with $20 while he and my brother went to play blackjack. I think spent $15 of it on Gi Joe.

      I've never heard of this game. My arcades weren't cool enough I guess

      I'd forgotten about this. Total ape of Space Harrier, but you can't go up. It didn't hold my interest after the 3rd stage.

      Never heard of it either, but I did have the Commodore 64 GI Joe game, which had crazy long load times but a much bigger selection of characters you could use.

      Two basic gameplay modes, a top-down shooter where you drive a tank or a helicopter. And then the character VS. character scenarios where the Joes meet Cobra at snow, desert, street, and Cobra Command kocations.

      (And it was hard as hell).
