The Lost Patrol (1990)

Categories: infantry gamessniper games

During Vietnam War Huey helicopters were the work horses of American army - they deployed the troops to places unreachable any other way, they provided the fire support for the marines cutting through dense jungle and they saved hundreds of lives serving as medevac choppers. But this story is different - after one of the helicopters crashes in the jungle 7 survivors have to find a way to return to base through the area full of Viet Cong forces. With limited food and only the weapons they can carry they set out on foot for 50 miles trek. The terrain they have to cross is not only jungle, but also rice fields, open terrain, the hills and rivers. There are few roads, but they are under control of Viet Cong, so it is wise to stay away from them. The whole time they have to deal with exhaustion, hunger and injuries, so they have to hurry back to the base, but at the same time if they hurry they can make a mistake and step on the traps, stumble upon Viet Cong patrol or get under the sniper fire. Vital points on their ways are the few villages, where informations and supplies can be gathered, but also they cause risk of facing the enemy...

Classic game that is partly arcade game and partly strategy and management game - on the map screen we have to plan our movement, check the state of the soldiers, give them some time to rest and something to eat. But from time to time we are switched to one of the few arcade scenes, in which we can fight with enemy soldier, try to survive ambush or mortar fire, kill a sniper before he will kill the whole platoon or search the village. It is one of the games that once played remains with user for a long time - a great soundtrack plus graphics set the atmosphere of being stuck in the hostile area that gives the idea of how the soldiers must have felt during the war.
