Description official descriptions
Depending on which title you use, and how you interpret it, this game is about a guy who a) rushes in before attacking b) attacks Russians (or is being attacked by Russians... in the mid-80s, when this game was produced, the Cold War was still in full effect), or c) wears a rather goofy hat. One way or another, this arcade game arms you with a knife and sends you on a kamikaze mission against hordes of enemy fighters.
There are four distinct sections of gameplay, taking in a Missile Base, a Harbour, a Bridge, and an enemy Prison Camp. Extra weapons with limited ammunition can be collected along the way, which will make the task a lot easier. The level is divided into 3 horizontal levels, which can be moved between either by jumping or using ladders, and this gives a chance to avoid the more threatening mobs of enemy fighters.

1001 Video Games
The Arcade version of Green Beret appears in the book 1001 Video Games You Must Play Before You Die by General Editor Tony Mott.
From an interview at MSX Games Box, Konami UK's old PR-manager Dennis Henings:
Q: What did Konami Japan say when they saw the MSX version of Green Beret developed by Konami UK?
A: $%£&**(())++~~ ( or their equivalent) This was much the same as I did!
(The MSX port was, unlike most Konami games, made by an external company in the UK for Konami's old UK branch instead of at Konami's own offices in Japan.)
