Description

My name is McArra and I belong to the special pacification forces. My mission: find and destroy a nuclear submarine U-5544 that has unbalanced the forces between the two most powerful Earth armies. The name of the operation is Cephalopod and I have heard that you want to help me in this "easy" mission.

At first, we will be sent near the island where is anchored the submarine awaiting orders. We will swim to the coast, and once there... everything will depend on us.

"Navy Moves" is a one-dimensional side scrolling shooter, and the sequel of "Army Moves" and has the same gaming style.

Trivia

Cover Art

The man on the front box cover is obviously modeled after Arnold Schwarzenegger, from the Commando (1985) movie poster.

Extras

Dinamic went the extra mile with the extras for the game. The original release included an ilustrated manual, a game poster, a sealed envelope containing tips for the game and a map of the submarine in the second part of the game. Re-releases included a shorter version of the manual only.

PC version

The PC version consists only of part 2 of the game, while the remainder of the 16 bit versions are complete. The reason behind this may be closing deadlines, which would have prompted Dinamic to release an incomplete PC port. The versions of "Army Moves" and "Navy Moves" included as extra content with "Arctic Moves" were ZX Spectrum versions running under an emulator.

Protagonist

The protagonist's name, McArra, is a play on the Spanish word for "pimp", "macarra".
