The manual doesn't mention it, but you earn a free copter when you complete the base level. You won't see a reserve icon appear at the bottom of the screen for it, but you'll have it.

The copter flies faster backwards in the 400/800 version than it does in the 5200 version (which correctly matches the scrolling of the background). Looks like it was programmed for the 5200 first, and whoever converted it screwed that up.

Super Cobra is missing a few aspects of the arcade version (rolling tanks, guided missiles) but overall it's a good looking version. Controls are responsive too. But I'm going to have to knock off a few points because it's so frustratingly difficult. If it wasn't for the infinite continues I wouldn't get anywhere. I think the problem is the player's chopper is too big. If it was about 2/3 the size then I think the difficulty would be fair.

Good game. I don't remember seeing very many Konami games for the Atari.

Tail of Beta Lyrae just smashed this game to atoms. That said, it's a very solid arcade conversion of Super Cobra, not outstanding but very solid and challenging for fans of shooters.

This is a great game - one of the few that actually had continues which enabled me to beat it :) (both today and 20 years ago)

Here comes the Super Cobra explosion! Parker is obviously taking the multi-format message to heart and one of the nice benefits for game players is the availability, if not saturation, of Super Cobra for every system short of the Timex/Sinclair.
Super Cobra is a fine adaptation of the Konami coin-op featuring a cannon-firing, bomb-dropping helicopter that must be... [more]
