Hey so over the past year I've sporadically tried to search for a game I played as a kid. I'm pretty sure it was for the Genesis or SNES, it was a cartoony sprite-based horizontal shoot-'em-up with planes (and the planes had cartoon eyes and stuff.) Typical video-game-y environments, very bright, lots of blue skies, I think you even went under water. Unfortunately I forget what the weapons were like but I think they were cartoony too, like you could shoot boxing gloves or something. It was a co-op game as well.
Dr Pepper. It's an intellectual drink, for the chosen ones.
