Operation Thunderbolt

Operation Thunderbolt

Ocean Software, 1989

The Hi-jack report came from a DC10 leaving Paris for Boston - Arab Guerillas were in control of flight 102 and had turned the aircraft towards Africa... The plane lands in hostile territory and the terrorists begin their demands

A rescue operation is called for and there is only one man to head it up, Roy Adams.

Weary from his Operation Wolf mission, he is persuaded to put his crack team into a new sortie to free the hostages.

Bringing you enhanced shoot-em-up action for one or two players, Thunderbolt not only reproduces the horizontally-scrolling gameplay of Wolf but brings 3D action to the scenario, pitting you against swooping jets, helicopters, tanks and many more awesome adversaries!

Get the laser sight, or the bulletproof vest, but watch out for those air-to-ground missiles! GOOD LUCK IN YOUR MISSION.
