In the sequel, the dictator has kidnapped some of the allies that helped you in that battle and so it's your job to go behind enemy lines and retrieve them. There are many tasks to accomplish in this multi-screen attack. To begin with you land your forces behind enemy lines by dropping and advancing them through and around a series of walls avoiding the constant firepower of a large gun situated at the bottom of the screen. One nice touch here is that if you are playing two-player, one player takes control of the gun. Once you have got your mini A-team past the gun, you then free the prisoners and protect them using the big gun to shoot tanks and enemy soldiers. After that it's a daring vertically scrolling helicopter flight. Finally it's the booma-dagger fight. Two opponents stand on either side of a cave and throw daggers at each other Great stuff!

Graphics are small, but very detailed in places and the animation in the first stage is a delight. A worthy follow-up to an old classic.

Fun re-release shoot-'em-up. An excellent budget battle.
