Hello!

I'd like to ask you to help me identify 2 old games. I've checked most of my
mame roms, but didn't find some of my favourites, so maybe you can recognize
it's names?

The first game was a mid-80's vector game, where the player controlled a
sort of spaceship looked like red "C" letter. It was moving around the edge
of blue tube (blue or violet as i remember), shooting to the different space
sprites and ships inside. It looked like an internal flight.

The second one was an "Asteroids" graphics type. The screen was divided into
the rectangle - unreachable interior, and the outside - elastic borders
external part. The space ship controlled by the player could move around and
shoot to enemy ships and avoid rounded and triangle mines. The game had 2 or
3 colours only (i suppose this was a filter like in "Battle Zone").

Regards

H.

There's also a bunch of console games that fit the description you give,
so I really don't know what game you're looking for.

You'll have to give a better description I'm affraid...
