Atomic Runner looks so nice I had to make a gif, even if I didn’t manage to get it into the actual article.

freaking out over the bird boss in Atomic Runner aka Chelnov (Genesis - 1992 - Data East)
heavily modified port of a 1988 arcade game
from Wikipedia: “The game’s plot was changed completely, where Chelnov is not a coal miner caught in a nuclear meltdown, but a regular human-being wearing a special combat suit who battles enemies to rescue his younger sister. The game’s enemies and background images were also changed to those reminiscent of an ancient civilization.”
Also thanks to vgjunk for this wonderful article that pointed me toward this game.
