You play as an American soldier, spreading havoc among soviet soldiers somewhere deep in the jungle and underground caverns.

The game plays as a side scrolling action game. You walk around in a maze of jungle and underground caverns while navigation is aided by a satellite link. Other tools you have at your disposal include some mines, wire cutters and a tracking beacon.

You can also get a trained dog that gives you an even better edge against your enemies.


GI Hero ZX Spectrum The enemies are not very clever. This one, and many others, walks right past GI so that he can be shot
GI Hero ZX Spectrum When GI starts to move the massive black aura surrounding him becomes apparent. It really shows when he's next to another character
GI Hero ZX Spectrum GI can only shoot when crouching. The bad guys die first shot. GI has limited ammo and a bullet is lost from the top left display for each shot
GI Hero ZX Spectrum The start of the game. GI looks big and well drawn doesn't he? The game initially reminded me of playing with toy soldiers when I was young
