A game with potential but way too "busy" and confused (and frankly ugly). But its one greatest characteristic was probably that it had, hands-down, the worst, most needlessly over-complicated and cryptic instructions ever written for any A8 game ever. A very good example of what happens when that is handed over to a developer rather than a writer.

I made a video from this game. If you wish to watch it, here's the address:

Incredibly good old game from 1984 for Atari XL/XE! This is real RTS, many years before Warcraft and Dune 2. You must give commands to your robot army to beat the enemy army. You can help them with your chopper, but they need to fight as well. Many game modes in this one game makes it great for many hours of play. Very underrated game.

Nice Game... give it a try. Not too involved cross between arcade and simulation game, quite satisfying to play. A game takes about 10-15mins or so. Found a set of instructions on this link:

Had a couple of goes but don't know how to pick-up troops? Has anyone got the instructions for this game? Thanks.

This game is a lot of fun and offers a real-time strategic element beyond what you'd see in a shoot-em-up. Pick up troops with your helicopter and transport them to the battle's hot spots. This is one of the few action games that combines keyboard and joystick effectively.
