Stinger is an arcade shoot 'em up released by Seibu Denshi on 1983. It was the first videogame released by this company.[citation needed] This arcade game is notable for being a horizontally scrolling shooter with a vertically oriented screen, a rather uncommon design.

The game consists of traveling around a space fortress meanwhile shooting aliens and spaceships. An object called "Bongo" could be used as a defense method. This object will shoot itself to the enemies for a few seconds.
