Hit Squad, £2.99
Spectrum, C64, Amstrad

One of the first military shoot 'em ups and a monster hit in the arcades when launched by Taito way back in 1985. Ocean cleaned up with the home conversions in Summer '86 and now they offer you a second attempt to rescue the hostages at £2.99.

Deep behind enemy lines six hostages are roped to stakes about to face the firing squad. You are one of the green beret commandos sent in to rescue them. Dash left to right taking out the Russians as impressive back drops of a naval base, aircraft base, missile base, and giant army rocket launchers and tanks scroll past.

Intelligently thought out shoot 'em up with excellent graphics and implemented on all 8-bit systems.

4/5
