Normal topicmsg's retro game of the week - Platoon

This week I''m showing the awesomeness of Platoon on the Commodore 64. It was released in 1987 and based on the movie of the same name, most movie games suck, but this one is really good. It was also released for most computers also around at that time.
Image

The first level sees you walking around the jungle.
Image

It's not all boring jungle though, it has bridges.
Image

And villages!
Image

The second level you are in an underground base, playing the game as a first person shooter, this part is a huge step up from the previous level in terms of quality.
Image

The map is quite large really, it's less linear than most modern shooters.
Image

The last part is a shooter, you can use a light gun. The enemy storm your position at night and you have to survive, shooting up flares so you can see where they are coming from. This is one of my favourite levels of any game, the excitement you feel trying to survive is pretty special.
Image

The first level feels really dated now, but the tunnel part is interesting and the last part still excites me. All in all, I'd say 7/10 for in it's day, 5/10 nowadays.

Bow down before me you peasant!

Yeah, it was awesome back then. I got it for Christmas that year and played it to death. I got the Light Fantastic pack

And I got the Blaze out pack of games: Combat School, Hypersports, Platoon, Rambo III and Robocop.
Image

I get all tingly remembering the good times :D

Bow down before me you peasant!

Pretty neat, I love games that have different play styles in different stages. You should check out Vice: Project Doom for NES if you haven't already:
