Army Moves is nothing if not annoyingly addictive. I kept saying "I'll give is one more go." You know how it is? Thirty goes later you're still willing to give it a go.

El paso de los años, como ya he dicho muchas veces, ayuda a aclarar las ideas y a poner las cosas en su sitio. Así fue como posteriormente comencé a apreciar el verdadero valor de este juego: su elevada y casi indescriptible adicción. Partida tras partida fui formándome una opinión más real, pudiendo corrobar hoy en día que se trata de una verdadera obra maestra de la programación.

Imagine's latest tour-de-force is one of the most difficult arcade games it has ever been my misfortune to play. dd to that some excellent graphics, tasty animation and a barrage of tunes and sound effects, and you've got solid shoot 'em up entertainment which will have you weeping with frustration as you play it again and again, determined to crack it.
Commodore 64Commodore Format (Feb, 1994)
As with other titles in the rage, it's a nice chrome-coloured romp around a rather odd background, and it's difficult. Really difficult. So difficult, in fact, that it deserves to have 10% knocked off it's final rating. It has.
Commodore 64ASM (Aktueller Software Markt) (May, 1987)
Faktum: ARMY MOVES ist ein typisches Ballerspiel harter Action-Machart, welches unter Umständen der Zensur zum Opfer fallen könnte. Für alle diejenigen, die bereits Green Beret „verschlungen“ haben, ist ARMY MOVES ein echter Nachfolger! Grafik; Sound, Spielinhalt und Motivation stimmen. Obwohl ich nicht gerade ein Befürworter von Kriegsspielen bin, so muß ich trotzdem feststellen; daß das neue IMAGINE-Produkt sicherlich bald ganz oben in den Charts zu finden sein wird!

Hi there! I'm a rootin' tootin' soldier and I like killing things and eating nails! I'm a member of the Specialist Operations Corps - a crack regiment of nutters, er, I mean commandos, picked for dangerous missions. Today's a real doozy - across broken bridges, jungles, deserts, learn to cope with lots of different modes of transport, enter the enemy HQ, open a safe and get some information. And all before breakfast!

Adaptation d'un logiciel huit bits, ce programme ne dispose pas d'un scénario étoffé. Mais il ramène à la tradition du shoot-them-up, où réfléchir est interdit.
ZX SpectrumTilt (Jul, 1987)
La version Spectrum de ce logiciel est tout à fait correcte. Les graphismes sont de bonne facture et l'animation souple, précise et rapide. Les bruitages ne sont pas fabuleux mais cela vient aussi de la machine. Un bon logiciel de guerre assez difficile et aux situations variées.
MSXSvenska Hemdatornytt (Mar, 1988)
Spelet är ganska lätt, men när man kommer till fas 2 är det väldigt svårt att se fiendens skott p g a attributproblemen nämnda ovan. En ganska bra konvertering, men Spectrumens attributproblem finns inte på MSX-datorer. Eller fanns. Tills det här spelet kom ut.
Commodore 64Happy Computer (Jul, 1987)
Army Moves zählt zu den echten Kriegsspielen, bei denen der Spieler auf die Mission geschickt wird, Menschen zu töten, damit er eine möglichst hohe Punktzahl bekommt. Doch sieht man mal von der blutrünstigen Handlung ab, bleibt spielerisch nicht viel Positives übrig. Weniger die Geschicklichkeit, sondern das Glück des Spielers wird auf eine harte Probe gestellt.
AmigaCommodore User (Sep, 1988)
The whole feel of all three sections is wrong and totally fails to convey any sense of action or excitement. The game's single saving grace is the refreshingly camp attitude. A laughably bad (but fun) rendition of 'Colonel Bogie' plays throughout the entire proceedings and there are a couple of nice presentation touches such as the way that the title of the game is spelt out in animated pockmarks left by bullet holes and the hi-score table lists the top 'Prime Movers' (must have been done by a Zodiac Mindwarp fan). This, however, does little to compensate for what is ultimately a terminally boring game.
ZX SpectrumYour Sinclair (Mar, 1990)
[Re-release] So, let's be controversial about this. People who are really good at the hardest shoot-'em-ups will find this right up their street. I, on the other hand, loathe and detest it. Out of the window it goes!
Atari STST Action (Oct, 1988)
This is all jolly good arcade fun! But analyse your requirements for a game before buying it in order to avoid disappointment. If progressive graphics, innovation are important to you, don't bother! This is arcade entertainment at its most addictive and vacuous.
Atari STThe One (Oct, 1988)
It's a shame Ocean bothered to convert Army Moves - the time would have been better spent producing some original 16-bit product. The only compensation is that Ocean should learn from this mistake and at least we can expect to see some more palatable software in the near future.
Atari STThe Games Machine (UK) (Oct, 1988)
Army Moves is a game in which perseverance gives small rewards.
AmigaThe One (Oct, 1988)
Army Moves is extremely difficult and frustrating, and it gets to the stage where you feel like throwing your Amiga across the room when you almost reach the end of a level only to die and have to start it again from scratch. Masochists are amply catered for here. The more discerning games players are advised to steer dear.
AmigaThe Games Machine (UK) (Oct, 1988)
Sound - and suitably militaristic music - adds little to the atmosphere, but uses quite amusing voices on the Amiga. Army Moves is a game in which perseverance gives small rewards.
Commodore 64Tilt (Jul, 1987)
Un nouveau type de logiciels est né (si, si, c'est vrai): Ce sont les programmes bien mais nuls. Parfaitement réalisés techniquement, ils ont la désagréable habitude d'être beaucoup trop difficiles. C'est le cas d'Army Moves.

Your careers officer in school really had a hard time finding you a job. Just saying 'I wanna be an 'ard man!' wasn't exactly helpful. Still, now you're in the Special Operations Corps (SOC), you've been sent on a well dangerous mission to steal information from the enemy.
