What a violent little thing you turned out to be, such
a sweet lovely baby too. Now you're a mean war machine
going by the name of Green Hat and after some nasty
Eastern Europeans have captured a whole bunch of your
pals, good old Uncle Sam has sent in that khaki-clad,
weapon-wielding, ball of nastiness, Green Hat. So much
easier than messing about with all that amnesty rubbish
and other such bleeding heart organisations. Terry Waite?
Pah Terry Waite, send in Green Hat, he'll kick some
Hat is so amazingly HARD that
Unca Sam hasn't even given him any weapons, he knows
that with the aid of a Red stabbing bayonet, America's
favourite psychopath should have absolutely no trouble
rescuing all his erstwhile chums. None of those nancy
rocket launchers for Green Hat, he eats Rambo videos
is that, unlike your blob of a spritely mate Rambo,
bullets don't bounce of your epidermis, they actually
make a bit of mess of it and are prone to leaving Captain
Green Hat dead. Never mind, Green Hat can tear six telephone
directories in half and then eat them all up, Rambo
can't do that.
is dropped into the war-zone, tan glistening with beads
of sweat, hair waving in the breeze shouting 'Kickem
inna head! Punchem inna face! hehehe' and runs into
the scrolling onslaught. Green is a meaty fellow and
with the mere flick of a joystick can be persuaded into
performing all number of Action Man contortions.
and right are the most obvious movements, twanging the
stick in these directions causes Green Hat to leg it
left and right. Though no gun is supplied, old Green
Hat is in possession of an enemy bayonet, a stab on
the fire button prods any poor commie swine who get
in Green Hat's way, frazzling them to death. If you
sanction the right guy then a flame thrower can be picked
up (though it's only good for three very deadly shots).
handy little manoeuvre is the leap, accessed by pushing
the joystick forward and handy for vaulting over any
advancing reds (their touch is deadly). Couple this
with climbing up and down along the various bits of
ladder around the shop and you'll find Green Hat rather
game is divided amid three sections, the bridge, harbour
and missile base, all of which need to be completed
if you' re going to get Green Hat to rescue the captives.
Each section scrolls left and right and to get to the
next section just leg it as far right as you can; at
the end of each quadrant there's a fracas with soldiers.
Basically you have to kill a whole load of them before
being allowed to go further and if you haven't picked
up a flamethrower this can become very difficult indeed.
the hostages have been recaptured you can happily whizz
back to Nunckie Sam with tales of how amazingly HARD
you are, won't that be nice?
