  1. maybe someone from the early 90s/late 80s can help me ID an arcade game.  I saw it once at a Chinese restaurant back in the early 90s.  It's basically plays like MERCS or an overhead Contra level throughout.  Like Contra and Mercs, it is a shooter where you shoot soldiers and tanks, etc.  That's ALL that I remember…and it's 2 players.  Any ideas greatly appreciated. 

  2. Rolling thunder is a game name ( 0.36 to 0
    42 )
