Saigon Combat Unit

But now for something singularly average again. This dull little scroller is not, unlike the spanking Jonah and Gregory, worth your hard-stolen cash (whoops). It's essentially a run-along-and-shoot-everything-that-moves game, with not terribly clear graphics and terminally dreary gameplay. Shoot this, avoid that, jump all over the place, and what's your reward? Just more coma-inducing screens like the previous one. Of course, if by any chance you have been marooned on a desert island for five years, or the lecky board cut you off in 1982 and only remembered to reconnect you last week, this game may seem terribly novel and exciting. Otherwise, forget it.
