Description from the packaging.
The first casualty of war is innocence.
In Vietnam, an American soldier soon learned that there were no winners in this deadly game. To survive each mission with his morale and sanity intact, and to return to base safely, was all he could hope for. This was captured in the award-winning film, Platoon.
In Data East's Platoon, you will experience the full impact of the film as you lead your platoon into the jungles, bunkers, foxholes, and underground tunnels of war-torn Southeast Asia.
There you will encounter guerrilla fighters, snipers, booby-trapped trip wires, armed patrols, and napalm air strikes. You must pick-up food, medical supplies, and ammunition along the way.
At times, the odds may seem insurmountable. But don't think about winning- to survive is enough.
