An arcade classic.
3 July 2003 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

This game is probably more memorable for those who played it at the arcades, although it also was on Commodore 64 and Nintendo. It was one of the first side scrolling action games (along with Mario). I remember liking this game primarily for the action and awesome music that would play in the first level. It sounded like a cross between James Bond and Mission:Impossible.

You play as an agent of Rolling Thunder, a special police force task unit. You're on a mission to stop an attempt to take over the world. You must also save Agent Leila, who is being held captive in their headquarters. Each area of the base is guarded by enemies with different weapons.

The terrorists wear different colored tights with long hoods, and their boss looks like an evil version of Yoda. Enemies usually take 2-3 hits to kill. There isn't a lot of leeway for error in this game either, as two shots will kill you. You have limited ammo in your handgun, but you can also find the machine gun in certain doors. As you progress, the enemies get harder to fight; some have grenades or will duck from behind tires and are really hard to shoot at without getting hit. I still go back to play it now and then. It'd be a cool title to bring back but it might not be that well known.
