Enter alone, deep into enemy territory to rescue the kidnapped President in this overhead-view action shooter.

Anyone familiar with Ikari Warriors, Mercs or Capcom's Commando will instantly recognise this style of run n' gun action. Yes it's another Rambo clone! That's not such a bad thing - guns, explosions and death is what we all want from our retro games...

Looks cool, sounds good.

I think I will wait for your review, but out of the recent news for games, this one intrigues me the most.

IGN had news about this ages ago, but I wasn't sure to believe em at the time since you guys always beat them to the VC news.

Gues it is true. I viewed footage of it and if it looked very meh IMO.

I still have the HuCard for this game stuffed in a drawer someplace... Played it to death back in the day. A tip: if you beat the game, let the credits roll all the way through and you get a code for a "second quest".

Hang on, this is a good game? I thought this was another one of those 2* TG games until just now >.<
Actually looks ok, but I doubt I'll download it.

Ya I would have to agree with Alex on his assessment. This game is a ton of fun but Rambo 3 was a superior game...i mean...you get to shoot down a heli with a bow...

Doesn't look half bad. I might get it, if a better run and gun doesn't come out. I wonder if this was the first game to feature "Muscle Emphasis Tablets".

This is rated as an ACTIONADVENTURE?! Does this mean I get to explore, collect items and abilities and than solve puzzles with them? It certainly does NOT look like it, especially with this Run'n'Gun-type of movie in the review :P

Loved this game back in '89 or '90 whatever year it was that it came out. Still have the Hu card but alas the Turbo Grafx was fried a long time ago. I'll Definately download this one. Good gameplay, blissfully retro music and graphics, terrible (inadvertently hilarious) dialogue, and yes it has major slowdown issues (just look at it as giving you more time to react to the oncming gunfire). Great game warts and all.

Took a bit of a gamble and downloaded this game last night, and I have to say it's surprisingly good!

The game is campy to the bone, but in a good way. I'd recommend this to all fans of Commando, Ikari Warriors or Guerilla War.

I downloaded this a while ago while ago when I was drunk (I thought the name was really funny) and it turned out to be quite an excellent game! Nice challenge and incentive to move forward with the amusing story. Presidents kidnapped? Of coarse he is! Get in there!! Something that hasnt been mentioned in the review is the excellent music in this game. In particular the 2nd level tune, had it in my head for days!! Its not an essential title but its a great blast all the same. Recommended.

Just recently picked this one up - excellent little game. There's absolutely nothing original about it at all, but what it does, it oes very well. Certainly an enjoyable romp through jungles, marshes, mountains and bases, with some awesome motorcycle skills. Unlimited continues knocks the challenge down quite a bit, but the 4 new levels can be quite tough, and some of the later bosses are rather brutal (the final one in particular). Certainly worth your money.

I've always liked Bloody Wolf. I know it rips off just about every run-n-gun out there, but who cares. It's still a lot of fun to play! :)

Even though you get one life in Bloody Wolf. I managed to get to stage six. Or I had more patience for videogames back then. This is a surprising playable shooter. Nothing overly revolutionary even when this was in the Arcades. Yep this was in the arcade before the faithful arcade translation. The TG-16 was known for it very good near perfect ports of the Arcade versions. Bloody wolf was one of them.
