Platoon

Platoon

Ocean Software, 1988

You are a raw young recruit in a Platoon of five, deep in enemy territory. Unprepared for the challenges that lie ahead, realisation dawns that you must not only survive the physical ordeals but retain your sanity amidst the horrors and injustices of war.

As the game progresses, you must overcome the hostilities in the different environments presented to you and ultimately survive with your sanity and morale intact. There are six sections in this experience, each presenting you with a more arduous problem. There will be casualties, as in any war, but the first casualty of that naive young soldier will be his innocence.
