Strikers 1945 is brought to you by Psikyo and was released in 1995.

Strikers 1945 is a vertical scrolling flying shooter which is set in the year (yep you guessed it) 1945. You are a pilot and are part of a team called the Strikers and your mission is to destroy the evil organization "C.A.N.Y.". "C.A.N.Y." was formed soon after WWII ended and is rumored to have ties to high-ranking military officers from around the world. "C.A.N.Y." has been developing new secret weapons that the world has not seen the likes of.

You have six planes to choose from two American the P-38 Lightning and P-51 Mustang, two Japanese the A6M Zero and Kyushu J7W1 Shinden, one British the Supermarine Spitfire and one German the Messerschmitt Bf 109. Each plane has a unique bomb and also has relief fighters with unique attacks and formations. You acquire relief fighters via powers-ups found throughout the stages each players is only able to have four relief fighters at one time.

The game consists of eight stages taking you around the world and into space. Each stage consists of fighting off waves of ground and air enemies and a boss fight. The boss fights are broken up into segments in which you need to destroy something to get closer to the destruction of the boss. Once you have defeated the final boss you are sent back to the start but set on super hard difficulty setting. If you are able to defeat the final boss again you will see the "The End" screen and taken to the Hi-Score table.

Jump Bug was released in 1981 by Rock-ola.

Jump Bug is a very strange platform-shooter game. You are the driver of a car with the ability to jump. While you are jumping around in your car you must collect bags of money and gems without getting hit. You are able to control the height of the jumps and the speed of decent as well. Your car is also equipped with a weapon for you to shoot enemies in your way for more points.

The game has eight scenes for you to bounce your way through and they are the city, the plains, the volcanoes, in a pyramid, the volcanoes (again), the sea, the sky and the finish. Once you have made your way to the finish you are sent back to the first scene until you are out of lives.
