DescriptionDepending 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.

Bob Wakelin's C64 Cover ArtIn the same way as that there's a strong resemblance between the illustrations of Bob Wakelin in Ocean's Cosmic Wartoad artwork and Mike Zeck's in Marvel's The Punisher (1986 series) vol. 1: Limited Series #2, again there's a connection between Imagine's Green Beret's cover illustration and The Punisher (1986 series) vol. 1: Limited Series #5. Also, both works were contemporary to each other.
