Super Cobra is missing a few aspects of the arcade version (rolling tanks, guided missiles) but overall it's a good looking version. Controls are responsive too. But I'm going to have to knock off a few points because it's so frustratingly difficult. If it wasn't for the infinite continues I wouldn't get anywhere. I think the problem is the player's chopper is too big. If it was about 2/3 the size then I think the difficulty would be fair.

Here comes the Super Cobra explosion! Parker is obviously taking the multi-format message to heart and one of the nice benefits for game players is the availability, if not saturation, of Super Cobra for every system short of the Timex/Sinclair.
Super Cobra is a fine adaptation of the Konami coin-op featuring a cannon-firing, bomb-dropping helicopter that must be... [more]
