Description from the packaging.

Special alert: Terrorists have invaded our Embassy and seized an undetermined number of hostages... Lives hang in the balance as high-ranking diplomats are held at gunpoint... Their safety requires immediate action... Prepare to infiltrate the Embassy, neutralize the terrorists, and rescue the hostages... Or die trying.

Stage 1.
Set up strategic positions across from the Embassy. Be prepared to dive for cover is the terrorists' spotlights turn your way.

Stage 2.
Gain access to the Embassy. Rappel from the roof and crash through unguarded windows, keeping out of terrorist gunsights.

Stage 3.
Locate the hostages. Heavily armed terrorists control all three floors and must be neutralized before they can open fire.

Stage 4.
Bring the hostages to safety. Their families- and the nation- are counting on you to succeed in this life-or-death operation.

Features:

  • Control of six Assault Force team members.
  • Three difficulty levels, plus a training mission without hostages.
  • Superb graphics and sound effects.
  • Action, strategy, and suspense.
