Back of Box - DOS (Canada/US):
    A Techno-Thriller From the Case Files of Max Remington

    In the 1990's our national nightmares are haunted by the wild-eyed political extremists, greedy and ruthless drug lords, and lunatic military dictators. For too long we have felt powerless to stop them.

    But now, award-winning game designer Sid Meier takes us around the globe with Max Remington to challenge these threats and neutralize their shadowy schemes of terrorism, smuggling and extortion.

    A seasoned veteran of modern, high-tech undercover operations, Remington always obeys the two main rules of Covert Action: 1. Use your intelligence. 2. If Rule one fails, use your other weapons.

    Intelligence Recognize Faces * Break Codes * Unravel Plots and Sub-plots to Determine How Sub-plots Fit Together in the Larger Scheme * Decide Which Leads to Follow, Which to Ignore

    Weapons Guns * Fragmentation Grenades * Stun Grenades * Remote-Control Bombs * Tear Gas

    Special agent Max Remington goes to work in an international espionage simulation that portrays this clandestine world the way it really is. Espionage in the 1990s thrives on technology. Tap phone lines, crack complex codes, defeat computerized defense systems. Track suspects around the globe as you put together the pieces to a worldwide criminal plot. In the shrouded world of Cover Action, ingenuity is the best weapon you can have.
