Desert Strike - Return To The Gulf
by Electronic Arts
In the heart of the Middle East, the desert isn't the only thing that's dangerous and unpredictable. There, a violent storm is brewing and a lunatic dictator is out of control.
Deja vu, or what?! Electronic Arts tapped into last year's hottest headlines to bring you this year's hot new Genesis cart: Desert Strike: Return to the Gulf.
With a chilling touch of the reality of the Gulf war, this game puts the player in the pilot's seat of an Apache helicopter, armed to the hilt and ready for combat. the Apache is loaded with fuel and weapons. A word of caution: use these resources wisely. The chain gun is your least powerful weapon; use it mainly to preserve the Hydra and Hellfire missiles. Desert Strike combines the fast pace of an action/adventure game with the detail of a role - playing game.
Conserve your fuel. Check out the battle map for the best route. The map also will help you figure out where friends and foes are positioned.
You have three lives in each mission. Watch for boxes with a red cross symbol. Want an added boost in the first campaign? You can start with ten lives by entering the password BQQQAEZ.
When you fly your first mission, lift off from the carrier and head for the enemy radar dishes. You can destroy all enemy weapons, troops, vehicles and structures if you're really into it, but it's only necessary to fire on the targets in your orders. Other structures, however, may contain extra fuel or weapons you can confiscate by hovering over them.
Later missions pit you against different kinds of enemy forces. You'll be out there destroying (if you're lucky) SCUD missile launchers, a chemical weapons complex and nuclear weapons facilities. It's your job to stop oil spills, save entire oil fields and airlift commandos to safety.
Survive, and you'll be honored by the President.
