It's an arcade game
Vulcan Venture from Konami
Konami made many different versions of this one. It's actually a clone of Gradius but that's the one I like the most. When I first played it I was sucked in by the original atmosphere that had been created in the game. It was the first time I encountered the option to use multiple weapons in a space shooter. It also featured digitized sound effects and fantastic enemies like lions made up of lava jumping around to blow your ship.
I'm never good at shoot'em ups and don't like the genre that much but that's one of the few I like.
