Hi!

Not listed on Mobys but there are dos/win remakes, not hard to find via google.
Also a lot of online flash game sites for the game.

Have you checked the games in the "Space Shooting" category? One of them might be a match ... (just click on the screenshot links)

I checked all the screens and power strike and it's not any of these games Sad

Thanks for your help anyway. I do remeber that in game there was an option for 2 players and when you flew around there were these (blue i think) baloons which you shooted and than got the upgrade or gas or something like that.

Yes and that's the problem with your description.
It covers any game in that genre ever released and all their clones or fanmade variants.
There are thousands floating around of those.

But what should I descibe?

This is my best description and it contains everythingthat I remeber ofthe game:

(I am not sure of that there is a big silver robot and there are some chinese letters on the screen). Than you strat the game. You are a green airplane (if there are 2 players the secound one was silver) and you fly around shooting planes and ships. Meanwhile there are blue baloons floating and if you shoot them you switch which reward it is going to be. If you shoot it as many times as possible you get an upgrade of your weapon. And after many upgrades you get a new plane and all over again. Then there are bosses on the end of some (or maybe every) levels. I remeber that the best weapon possible were red lasers shooting in many directions.

This is everything I remeber. Please give it a thought. I appreciate all of you who have helped and all of you who give any sugestions. Thank you!

Trying a long shot, since you mention there were chinese characters. Could it be Raiden II or any other in the
Raiden Series? The Raiden series of games were very popular Chinese shooter games. From Raiden II and above it is at least 2 players each with different colured plane (red & blue).

There is no blue balloon but there were coloured (including blue) square power ups floating around.

It's not one of these versions of Sky Shark, perhaps?

Something about "If you shoot it as many times as possible you get an upgrade of your weapon. And after many upgrades you get a new plane and all over again" made me think of it.. well, the NES version.. if I'm even remembering it right.

OK. I posted it before and this is really everything I know:

(I am not sure of that there is a big silver robot and there are some chinese letters on the screen). Than you strat the game. You are a green airplane (if there are 2 players the secound one was silver) and you fly around shooting planes and ships. Meanwhile there are blue baloons floating and if you shoot them you switch which reward it is going to be. If you shoot it as many times as possible you get an upgrade of your weapon.
