INTRODUCTION: TOP SECRET
It is the early 21st Century and the world faces its deadliest challenge
yet. A ruthless billionaire named D.C.GENOCE has used is fortune to purchase
key areas of the world. Now he is planning to take over the world with the
aid of is army who were made redundant after the cold war.
Obviously, the Pentagon are not going to allow this to happen.
Consequently, they've brought in their best man to deal with the situation
single-handedly. Of course, that someone is YOU!...
The action in Island Strike is spread across various missions, and your job
is to steam in there and sort things out with your helicopter.
Your aim is to rescue all hostages and blow up bridges that you have been
set. When the game opens you can zip around the island blasting em all.
But you will need to keep a close eye on your FUEL:AMMO:ARMOUR run out and
your in big trouble mate... Powering up your helicopter is essential in
finishing the missions. You will find dotted around the island FUEL:AMMO:
ARMOUR, but they are very thin on the ground. Use them wisely. You simply
fly over them and stop and your helicopter will pick it up.
Pressing (SPACEBAR) when your in mission will bring up your STATUE SCREEN.
As you will see, it contains all the information any self-respecting
chopper pilot should know. For a start you can use the map option to search
for your MEN:AMMO:FUEL:ARMOUR. And from here you can also keep tabs on how
much AMMO:FUEL:ARMOUR your helicopter has on board and will indicate how
many MEN rescued so far. Keep a very close eye on them.
You can also quit the game from here, but your not going to do that!!!
Pressing (SPACEBAR) again will return you to your mission.
You should also choose your CO-PILOT very wisely.
Here's the full list of co-pilots within the game...
