NAM 1975 - March 2013

NAM 1975 - March 2013

Beat NAM 1975 for 60 points!

"The roar of the helicopters overhead snaps us back into reality. We will never forget the nightmare of that summer..." these were the phrases that started the story of Silver & Brown (the names used to describe the two available players).
The game is set in a very fictional account of the final months of the [ame="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vietnam_War"]Vietnam War[/ame]. The story begins with the two soldiers, Silver (P1) and Brown (P2), entering the war to rescue Dr. R. Muckly, an ex-scientist of the American Army, who has been kidnapped by [ame="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vietcong"]Northside Terrorists[/ame]. Nancy Muckly, Dr. Muckly's daughter has also been kidnapped and is presumed imprisoned in the NAM interior.
However, as the game progresses, the armies learn that Dr. R. Muckly is a madman who is building a gigantic laser cannon to take over the world himself (the final boss battle was infamous for disallowing continues, except by modifying the DIP switch). Despite the intense firepower of the laser cannon, the troops defeat Dr. Muckly and save the world, though the war continues in Vietnam.
There are many references to many famous [ame="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vietnam_War_film"]Vietnam War films[/ame] in the game, such as [ame="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Apocalypse_Now"]Apocalypse Now[/ame] and [ame="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Full_Metal_Jacket"]Full Metal Jacket[/ame]: the attract sequence showing one of the characters firing off an [ame="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/M60_machine_gun"]M60 machine gun[/ame] is clearly ported from the shot of Animal Mother firing on the VC sniper in the latter film.


Here is an example of the ending:
