Green Beret was an action arcade game released by Konami in 1985. It is remembered for its Cold War setting and its reliance on the player using mainly a knife to dispatch enemies, although you were able to collect many different weapons including the flame thrower. Green Beret was one of the hardest games I had ever played on the Amstrad and yet was one of the games that gave me the best memories! So why is this game getting another mention on IRN? Well as of today Dante Mendes has shown off some brand new footage of the upcoming Amiga version, which is being developed using the Earok’s Scorpion Engine!
GREEN BERET (RUSH’N ATTACK) Amiga Update
The talented DJ METUNE (Martin Eriksson, Amiga’s Rygar musician) provided a great rendition of NES Rush’n Attack’s OST(can be heard here).
Also added cut scenes, gyrocopters etc.#AmigaRetweets #gamedev #retrodev #chiptune #AmiGameJam pic.twitter.com/1ljWGjNKXK
