In the dead of night, a sergeant from a top U.S. crack commando squad is dropped by helicopter behind enemy lines in the steamy jungles around Saigon. His brief is to single handedly penetrate the Viet Cong strongholds and release fellow compatriots still held captive by communist guerillas. This is the ultimate challenge. A Compulsive, Action Packed, Mutli-levelled game requiring Concentration, Skill and Stamina to successfully accomplish your mission.

Game Objective

Armed with grenades and the latest M16 rifle, Sergeant Rumbo sets out on his mission to free the P.O.Ws still held captive by communist guerillas long after hostilities have ended with the U.S.

His stock of grenades is limited but can be replenished during his mission. Releasing the P.O.W.s will increase your number of lives accordingly.

The enemy soliders will do everything in their power to stop you and you could often find yourself out-numbered, so take cover and get shooting!
