Back of Box - NES:
Are you ready for the real thing?
IN the jungle, everything is invisible.
Including the enemy.
Suddenly, a firefight explodes all around you.
That's jungle combat as you saw it in the movie Platoon.
Now, Sunsoft's Platoon takes you right into the action, You'll fight for your life against deadly guerrillas and hidden snipers, always on guard against the booby traps and napalm air strikes that could end it all in an instant.
Jungle combat, as close as you'll ever want to get to the real thing.
You've got it right in the palm of your hand.
Blow the bridge.
Night fight, launch flares.
Intense 3-D jungle.

In Vietnam, an American soldier soon learned that there were no winners in this deadly game. To survive each mission with his morale and sanity intact, and return to base safely, was all he could hope for. This was captured in the award-winning film, Platoon.
In Data East's Platoon, you will experience the full impact of the film as you lead your platoon into the jungles, villages, bunkers, foxholes, and underground tunnels of war-torn Southeast Asia.
There you will encounter guerilla fighters, snipers, booby-trapped trip wires, armed patrols, and napalm air strikes. You must pick up food, medical supplies, and ammunition along the way.
At times, the odds may seem insurmountable. But don't think about winning - surviving is enough.
