Back of Box - NES (US):

    Up for a little guerrilla warfare?

    You asked for it.
    You're behind enemy lines, armed with only a knife and a mission: to free dozens of POWs hidden in an isolated, well-armored camp.
    If you're good, you'll pick off the heavily armed enemy guerrillas, one by one, and grab their bazookas and hand grenades.
    If you're great, you'll turn their weapons against them, to blow away a pack of attack dogs, a fleet of choppers, and a whole battalion of guards.
    But make one mistake, and it's all over. For you, our POWs... the future of the Free World!

The Official Nintendo Player's Guide (1987):


    Secret orders instruct you to penetrate enemy lines within a dark, hostile forest where dozens of American POWs are held captive on a heavily armed base. Your mission is to free the POWs and destroy the base. Armed with a knife and your lionhearted courage, you are their only hope!

    GAME PLAY: Pick off the armed enemy guerillas one by one and steal their bazookas and hand grenades. Then, and this is tricky, use their own weapons against them! Come out blasting and go for their vicious attack dogs, fleets of choppers and entire batallion of guards. You must search and destroy through six stages of action, each more dangerous and difficult than the last--the harbor, the airport, the missile base all are fraught with hazard. If you don't like going it alone, two can play this warrior's game.
