If Cloak & Dagger taught me anything, it's that they're probably full of military jet fighter blueprints.

Was it colour or black and white? I had one on the SE called Apache Strike:

Long shot though, no Iraq in the title

LOL almost sure Silkworm never made it to Mac - at least certainly not in the SE days

But... it's one of the best 2P arcade games around - the 2 completely different vehicles co-operatively competing against the enemies was a very cool concept.

Does anyone remember a game for the PC that was called Phoenix? It was similar to Rockford or Boulderdash as in you were running about collecting gems and avoiding falling rocks and enemies, but it was different in that you could not outrun falling rocks as you could in Rockford. I have not been able to find any information on the game.

It wasn't Felix and doesn't appear to be any games on that site. It was similar to Felix. There were enemies that moved around, but nothing like the skulls in Felix.

Guys I need your help finding this game, my google foo is a fail!

Title: Ping
Date: Approx 17 years ago
Platform: Windows, maybe!
Description: There was like 30 stages, every stage was a different part of the world. You start by shooting a bubble that breaks into two, and so on until the end. Different guns fall out the bubbles and clock to freeze the bubbles..
