Description

Beach Head 2002 is a 360 degree shooter in a photorealistic 3D environment. You are a lone gunner in a machine gun nest somewhere in the middle of a war. Your task is to keep your area clean - which means, that you need to shoot down everything that moves. And there is much movement - Marine Infantry transporters will drive up and unload a fresh batch of cannonfodder, helicopters will circle above and shoot you with their guns, tanks creep up bombarding you with shells...

To kill them all, you have quite an arsenal of deadly weapons: first of all, your trusty machine gun. You can rotate 360 degrees and crush your opponents into pieces with this huge weapon. You don't have unlimited ammo but usually it should be enough for killing all human life on the area. If this fails (when dealing with helicopters or tanks, for example), you can unleash some more power with your - limited amount - of rockets. They explode a tank or helicopter in one shot but you need to target really well - most of the usual rocket targets are moving. And if you are out of ammo for the machine gun and there is some marine soldier annoying you, pull out your pistol and finish him off!

The game has unlimited levels with increasing difficulty. A multiplayer mode is not included.
