Assault Trooper game description
The objectives vary from, for example, assassinating enemy officers to stealing important documents or rescuing hostages.
Before each trip you get to pick your own equipment from a list that offers several different types of firearms and explosives, a knife, a kevlar vest and so on. Even a flamethrower is an option. Since a commando has to be able to move fast, there is a weight limit for the amount of equipment you can take with you, and it depends on which of the four difficulty levels you’ve chosen.
Usually the best way to complete a mission is to sneak through the area without being detected by using bushes, rocks, buildings and other obstacles as cover. The enemy forces consist not only of soldiers, but also tanks, armoured boats and dogs (which are probably the hardest enemies of them all, as they’re very difficult to hit). An interesting feature is the noise indicator that shows which directions you can hear movement from. There’s also a map that helps you to navigate through the area.
The biggest problem with Assault Trooper is the graphics, which were already severely outdated when it came out in 1997, and these days they just look downright ugly. However, the graphics are functional and don’t make the game unplayable, so they can be tolerated. One thing does bug me a bit, though: commandos don’t usually wear blue in jungles, do they?
