Ok I'm lost trying to figure out an arcade game i used to play with my friends in the late 80's. It was right around the time if not a 1/2 year later than when 1942 came out.1984? anyway it was a game very similar to commando,jackal, a vertical scrolling screen & you looked down on your guy from a top view. He had a gun & heres the catch, "was able to get into a car & use it like in jackal until it caught fire and was able to roll out of it to escape it" at the end of each level there was a boss of sorts. Any Ideas? its not akari warriors either. I never saw it on a game console.)(-red
