A variation on the "Green Beret" theme, and if you shoot-'em-ups involving humans rather than spacecraft then fine. But I found few addictive qualities in the game. Read Review
Cobra is a good game; nice graphics, well used colour and a fair share of playability. Read Review
Cobra is just what we all expected. Not great, it's pleasant enough, and not as disastrous as most licence deals. Read Review
Ordinary mortals might not get far beyond the first couple of screens - at least, not without an awful lot of practice. Read Review
Sure, Cobra isn't very original, but it's furious fun which will test you to the limits. It's also one of the better film-linked titles. Read Review
It may well have been the intention to send the whole thing up... and that's fine... but those who like their destructive blasting untainted by any form of fun had better stick to the film. Read Review
As vigilante cop, Marion Cobretti of the 'Zombie Squad', you must rescue top fashion model Ingrid Knutsen from an army of psychotic killers and the evil clutches of 'The Night Slasher'.
This is where the law stops... and you start. Advance through three playfields: City Scene (night-time), Rural Area (day-time) and Factory. Use platforms and levels to locate and protect Ingrid from here attackers in each stage.
Use 'Head-Butt' feature to defend yourself and collect limited weapons hidden inside Beefburgers to thwart the attack. Beware - each weapon only lasts a short while!
Weapons are: Invincibility pill, knife, pistol, laser-sighted machine gun.
To move to the next section, you must:
Be careful - Ingrid gets upset and, if you try to kill her, she may wander away. She may also get abducted (again) by the enemy. Once the factory has been cleared you will have to confront The Night Slasher.
Any weapons you are carrying are graphically displayed at the bottom-right of the screen.
When using a weapon, the 'Quackometer' is displayed in the lower central part of the screen. This realistically indicates the time remaining before losing that weapon. You begin your mission with three lives and gain bonus ives at 10,000 points and every 20,000 points thereafter.
Crime is the disease... You're the cure!
Control keys redefinable. Most types of joystick interface are supported and on-screen instructions indicate the correct procedure to use them.
Use the appropriate joystick movements for Left, Right, Jump and Duck.
Press Fire to use the current weapon type.
Note: If using a Sinclair Plus 2 computer, select the joystick option Sinclair when using an Amstrad or Cheetah+ joystick.
