Classic arcade game - can't remember
I recall a classic arcade game, in the late 80's or early 90's, with a scrolling screen moving upwards. It was a two player cooperative game, where you would shoot oncoming enemies, fighting occasional bosses. I seem to recall long "worms" with segments that you had to destroy from the back forwards (I think). You would also get various power ups and stuff, if I recall correctly. I think it may have had some sci-fi/fantasy motif.
I know it isn't much to go on. I remember spending many quarters on it with a friend or two, trying to reach the end.

No, it was "later" than Galaxian, Centipede, all those.
You could move around the whole screen, not just the bottom.
In addition, the screen moved top to bottom, to make it seem like you were moving through a maze/tunnel, or something like that.

Are we talking controlling a space ship moving around the screen?
Are you moving a person around the screen?
Were you using a gun, laser, sword?
Were you being attacked by ships or people?
Was it an actual arcade game or are you talking a video game console at home playing an arcade style game?
It's all in the details.

Now I'm curious myself and I hope someone answers this
