Navy Moves

Moby ID: 14431

Description

Navy Moves is a side scrolling shooter. Being the sequel of "Army Moves" it has a similar gaming style.

The player plays McArra and belongs to the special pacification forces. Its mission: find and destroy a nuclear submarine U-5544 that has unbalanced the forces between the two most powerful armies on Earth. The name of the operation is Cephalopod.

Firstly, the player must cross a dense minefield on board of the Zodiac. The mines themselves are visible enough, but the player must also beware of enemies on jet-skis. After that, in order to reach the submarine the player will cross a series of underwater caves. They haven't been explored thoroughly, but are known to contain extremely dangerous fauna, like sharks and giant squids.

Part two of the game will take part inside the enemy submarine. In order to gain access to every section of the submarine the player needs to eliminate enemy officers and use their ID cards. Once every section is accessible, plant a bomb at the bottom of the nuclear reactor, stop the engines and reach for the surface.

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".
