Description from the packaging.

An action game by Dan Gorlin.

Most of us would like to be heroes. Trouble is, we're often not properly prepared when the chance to do something heroic comes along. This is your chance.

In the area which lies just a few miles east of Patagonia and to the south of Kurdistan lies the Bungeling Empire. This nation of militaristic ideologues has kidnapped the 64 delegates to the United Nations Conference on Peace and Child Rearing.

An ancient treaty between the United States and the Bungelings allows the U.S. Postal Service to maintain a mail distribution center in an area near where the hostages are being kept. You have smuggled an entire helicopter into the post office by disguising it as a mail sorting machine. There, while you reassembled your chopper, you have carefully planned to rescue the 64 hostages and bring them back to the post office.

Suddenly you hear the sound of explosions. Looking out on the plain where the hostages are billeted in four barracks you see one of the barracks aflame. The hostages are running about frantically, desperate for a chance to escape. Bungeling planes and tanks are fast approaching and lives may be lost. Your chopper is ready to go and fully armed- there is no time to waste. Broderbund has already contacted the governments involved and received assurances that if they are returned safely, discussions on world peace can begin in earnest.

Please purchase this package immediately. Go straight home. Read the instructions for operating your helicopter, and lay out your plans for rescuing these innocent people. Then get to it. Don't blow it. Being a hero isn't easy or everybody would be one.
