probably 25 years ago or thereabouts, I was on vacation in Cuba and they had an arcade cabinet there with a game I have not seen since. I recall very little about the game but here's what I know.
It was very much akin to metroid it its art style and gameplay. You started on the surface of a planet that was very rich in plant life - like maybe a jungle and this is a side-scrolling platformer like any mario game but your character was closer to Samus, running to the right, jumping, with some sort of gun or arm canon that could be upgraded with powerups. The enemies were all alien - plant or insect in nature and the one vivid memory I have just after starting a new game was running in a straight line to the right, firing the entire time and there were these large man-sized flowers laying flat on the ground. Let's call them venus fly traps. You would run over them and as long as you ran fast enough they wouldn't get you, the petals would come up and close in your wake as you ran past. Otherwise if you lingered, they'd eat you. They had maybe 3-4 bit pink/red petals I recall. Anyway I don't remember much else about the game except that I went through a lot of quarters on it. Anybody ever come across something like this?
