Introduction
As a member of the elite Marine unit, you have been ordered to secure the Bridgehead, the only access to the enemy occupied territory. The unit consists of eight men. The bridge is well patrolled by sentries. Once secured, the way is open to the enemy headquarters situated well behind the enemy lines. The unit has to make it's way with stealth, so as not to raise undue alarm. You have only one weapon a knife, and a limited supply of hand grenades which can be used to blow up the land mines or enemy sentries. There are occasional ammunition stores from which the supply of hand grenades can be replenished but the stores are well guarded and involve extra risk in capturing them.
The enemy is well armed with bazookas and even a new type of homing anti-personal missile which will seek you relentlessly.

At the of each level, the background scroll stops and you have to clear the remainder of the enemy before you start the next level. At the last level, you will see the enemy headquarters and the end of your task is in sight.

Prerelease Version
A prerelease copy of the disk version has been found in the Udo Gertz's original disks.
The disk features a menu with three possible options: C16 tape version, C16 disk version and Plus/4 version. Most probably, this eventually should have been used as a test to valuate how the different part of the game code would fit into memory for all the three options. All the choices show no intro and no music.


Stuck At Level 5
In the Level 5, have care to not reach the end of the background scrolling while walking on the upper platform: in any the final killout session, the enemy soldiers come from both side of the lower platform, and you have no space enough to descend the ladder on the right, being stuck with no solution!
