There is Bio Attack but it isn't a side-scroller.

Yep that's it!!! It was driving me crazy!! Wonder If any cabinet artwork existed for that game. & Can someone hack the screen to say "COVID-19 Attack" or "Corona Attack". Would love to build a dedicated lol

Edit found the marquee:

Yeah. You could put the names of people who died from the disease on the side art. It would be super classy.

Worth trying I take it? I never played it bitd. Better than Utopia?
Ajax should have been named Warlord, not Swan.

First off, Hoopz is right.

Yeah worth trying.  Not better than Utopia but 14 year-old me thought it was amazing.  I'd never seen anything like it.

Is anyone else completely disgusted by this idea?
Itís like, hundreds of thousands are dying from this pandemic, more are going through hard times from not working, but you want to theme a cab of it while itís happening. Yeah, pure class.

I remember seeing Microsurgeon on the early list of games for the Intellivision Amico but I can't find anything recent to confirm and don't recall seeing it in any of the trailers.

Yeah, I get the need for some levity, but given the current situation, I think the theme is in poor taste.

It does sound familiar.  It wasn't in the latest video. Tweet Tommy and ask.  :cheers:

I'm definitely a fan of Gallows humour, but this is also a hard no from me.

Sorry didn't mean to offend anyone figured it would be a cool way to zap the "Bio Attack" viruses in game while this is all going on. It was intended to keep people busy having fun with what I thought was a great title for a corona virus conversion / hack as we are mostly all social distancing & stuck at home. My apologizes to those who were offended or thought it was in bad taste that wasn't my intention.

I think it was a vertically scrolling shooter, and you were inside a human body fighting off viruses, perfect to play during the pandemic ..it exists in MAME what's the name of the game ?

Gotta say that on this occasion I agree completely with Howard. No offence intended to anyone, but making this proposed theme cab would be more ass than class.

Is anybody thinking about that classic movie "Fantastic Voyage" starring Raquel Welch from 1966? The scientists/doctors had to miniaturise themselves (and their ship/vessel) and were injected into a dying man's bloodstream in order to do a little surgery and save his life. They had to fight off things like white blood cells etc. The game reminds me more of that.
Check out my completed projects!

Sounds like Inner Space... as well as the ride in EPCOT which I rode back in the late 80's / early 90's "Body Wars".
