Arrow [SOLVED] Looking for two old platform games

[SOLVED]

Hi

I'm looking for two old platform games.
I played them around 20 years ago, but I'll try my best of describing them

1) You control a man (a soldier?) and as far as I remember the first level ends with a helicopter. It reminds a bit of Contra but it's not it. I think you can use grenades as your weapon. I'm almost sure that this melody is correct and from this game https://dl.dropbox.com/u/10484650/oldgame_music.wav This melody plays when you get to a jungle level.

2) You control a ninja or some asian figure that jumps from tree to tree (from a branch to a branch) and kill your enemy with shurikens. This game takes place in a forest at night. Might be this game but I'm not sure http://youtu.be/h2k-Hmvu5ow?t=8m37s

Please ID those games for me. 20 years of searching is driving me nuts ;D

EDIT:
3) Almost forgot. Looking for my very first computer game. You control a white plane that you see from above (the background is scrolling from up to down so) and you have to control the plane to avoid crashing into the cliffs. You don't have to shoot or kill anything as far as I remember. You just have to avoid crashing into cliffs by flying through "holes" which become more and more narrow, the further you get.

EDIT2: Thanks so much to everyone for help.

1) P.O.W.
2) Legend of KAGE
3) River Raid

Do you remember what the perspective was like? Was it a 2D platformer? Top-down view? Third person, or maybe isometric?
Long shot, but might be Cannon Fodder, guessing from your description so far.

Hmm... Contra-like game sounds too familiar... Are there rocket complexes involved? Hostages? Sorry, cannot remember name.

You see it from the side. Just like in Contra. Actually I just remembered something. I think also you have a knife as a weapon. (no, it doesn't seem to be Cannon Fodder)

Nope, sorry. It's neither of those two. As far as I remember, the game only takes place outside, the sky is dark/black and you can jump higher and higher into the trees.

Hmm first I thought it was it. I saw the entire gameplay video and didn't find places nor music I described :/
