  • Looking for an arcade game...

    Description:
    2D Side scrolling beat 'em up... similar to Captain Commando.
    You could choose from a selection of 4 different characters, and each one has a different style of combat and weapons.

    Each character can summon a different pet once the power bar is full.
    Animals are... I think: A Giant snake (Cobra), a Wolf, an Eagle, and a Dragon... maybe.

    I forgot the name and can't rember... any ideas?

    Metamorphic Force? It had 4 characters who could transform into beasts rather than summon them, and they weren't the same creatures you listed.

      Thank you very much for the quick reply, and although the game is very similar... that's not the one I'm looking for.

      A few more details:
      Game is based on recent times.
      Characters have weapons from the start. Like sword, etc...
      Characters are: A ninja, a samurai, a soldier, and something else I can't remember. If I'm not mistaken.

      However, I think you are right about one thing... actually now that you mentioned, I think the characters did morph into the pet rather then summoning them.
      But I'm pretty sure one of them was a snake.

      Thank you again, aptreciate all the help you can give.

        I can't think of anything that matches. Here's a big list of that style of arcade game, maybe it's one of them.

          I have looked at the list but still no luck.
          Anyway, thanks for all the help, and I guess this is one of those lost treasures that I will never find again.

          Unless I spend a lot of time looking for it in every single Arcade database there is... but that would take months.
          I don't have the strenght, patiente or time haha.

            There is an emulator for the pc called M.A.M.E. (Multi Arcade.Machine.Emulator.) For it there was a large romset of games including the original arcade machine games.from 1980 onwards.I won't post any links but you won't have trouble finding them if you type in google MAME.and MAME ROM SETS.3-4000 games where avaliable in the past.

              Thanks for the help, but 3000 games? I could go on forever trying to find this specific game.

                I found Sengoku, which is very close to the game I'm looking for... Guess that will have to do.

                  It could be Dragon Slayer: The Legend of Heroes - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dragon_...gend_of_Heroes

                  The problem is your description and lack of the mention of even a platform (e.g. PC, Amiga etc) means it could be any number of games as many include pets. If it isn't the above game I would sugest looking through this list to see if you can remember the name: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_beat_%27em_ups

                  If not I would suggest trying a search similar to this one: http://google.com/search?q="four+characters"+game+pet+2d

                  Unfortunately without a platform to go with or additional information as I said above this could be any one of a large number of games that feature 4 players + pets!

                    Thanks for the reply.
                    But that's not it... that's a sort of RPG, isn't it?

                    The game is an arcade game... you know those coin op machines?!
                    It's very similar to sengoku.
                    Side scroller, 2d beat em up.

                    Other than that, don't know what else to say...

                      Hi Soul,

                      My partner (an avid arcade nerd) seems to think it could be a game called Tecmo Knight. You can find numerous clips of the game on youtube, here's one anyway for you to have a look at...
