    i like download alot of emulated games on my pc and im trying to recall 1 i cant recall the name
    it was in a few shops in derby - end of the 80s it was a downward moving shooter

    you had a small space craft at the bottom of the screen, screen scrolls down as you go
    you pick up yellow stars.. these stars added small side wings to your small space craft.
    in total you could have 2 addons either side of your main craft.

    fire power included single fire /
    1/5 lasers depending on if you had the full wing upgrade
    and homing missiles again fired from the main center craft or the 4 addon wings.........

    just cant recall the name but it was around between 88-92 in derby in 1 or 2 record stores
    and in some arcades.... i keeping thing Zaaaap but i dont think thats it.....
    any ideas ???

    learn to read when u answer in a thread... i clearly said
    what i was looking for was NOT a left to right side scrolling arcade game
    i also did not say a game with a yellow spaceship - again you did not read
    what i said....dont get all pissy with me boy because you give answers based
    getting everything wrong.... yellow ship No side scroller NO that isnt what i said.

    here lets try this again

    the game u mention is clearly the screen scrolls either right to left or visa versa....
    does that sound like a game where the screen constantly scrolls DOWN....
    leave the beer alone.....

    i also said the space craft starts at the bottom of the screen and gold/yellow stars
    add extra wings to your craft as well as selecting power ups....
    the craft can move all round the screen but the screen still scrolls down as you go

    yup def sounds like what u where on about.... cheers please come again....
    very arrogant? where u been hiding i also do totally arrogant

    Common Proxygo, you don't need to get upset over a game now don't you? ; )

    And regarding mame32, it has thousands of games, who would find the one which he wants... I tried a few keywords on Google but nothing proper comes out.

    i can only recall it from memory of playing it in a record shop in
    derby around late 80s as i said b4. you have a small craft that starts center screen
    at the bottom the screen moves down, you shoot moving ships +
    stationary attacking stuff....these give yellow stars....

    stars can be used for either adding an extra small addon wing either
    side of your main little craft or, u can use the yellow/gold stars to
    switch your fire power, from single fire / lazers / homing missiles

    80s

    simlar style to 1942 but space craft down scrolling

    yellow / gold stars allow extra wings + power up

    guess it was an obscure game
