    Tempest. One day I'll get around to sorting out a trackball, so I can load the game in MAME and play it properly again. I reckon it's joint first with Defender for the amount of 10ps I blew in the arcades back in the 80s.

    A few years ago I found an old Centipede machine with a trackball controller. That was a joy to play. I was taken aback how good the control scheme was.

    Trio the Punch: Never Forget Me

    It's an action-platformer and...you should just find a way to play it and knock through a couple levels.

    Was a big fan of Capcom's Captain Commando. My fav side scrolled I reckon.

    I remember discovering Pigskin in MAME and losing a whole evening to it, https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pigskin_621_A.D.

    My Flatmate and I recently replayed Bubble Bobble, and it's still pretty great. The sequels less so though.
