war mission?

Post by el wil » Fri Feb 20, 2009 8:29 pm

Hi guys!

Long time looking for a game, the end of the 80s. ](*,)

I remember that this game had the name of war mission.

Scroll vertical.

The aircraft was an advanced prototype using two shots.

One shot to destroy the "bad" flying (airplanes, helicopters, etc).
The other shot is used to destroy the "bad" soil (small boats, large ships, tanks, etc).

I recall that the last stage, unfolded in space, with the bottom of the screen black.

I recall that the principle of this game, began flying on a stage with grass on the ground, and soon after volabas on the sea, a few small boats appeared, and I remember that at the end of the game, and has started again, no could kill these small boats, with the most pow ... or shooting was very difficult to destroy them!

What is the game that I ... I need a picture please!. :cry:

I think that is not emulated in mame, and if they would have another name.

Thanks guys! :D

I'm getting crazy looking for this game.
Only el wil seems to remember that game. Since I discovered Mame 8 yeas ago I have tried to find it several times.
I could bet my neck saying that War Mission is the correct name but unfortunately it doesn´t appears on Mame...

I have searched all the shooter games containing the word mission but none of them is the game I'm seeking. When MAWS was active, I watched all the screenshots related to vertical shooters and no match was found.
The Unmamed games? I had a look too, but no results :?
Where is my lost treasure? :cry:

I can discard the games mentioned aboved, I know them.

Wild guess, is it not:
Mission-X (Cassette) - 1982

If this game existed it should be somewhere, even if it has a different name now.

Could be an obscure hack perhaps?

Now here's another question, nothing to do with War Mission...

What is this poster advertising? (Reads AWAKEN, taken from film "The Freshman (1990). I guess it's a movie poster...but for what movie?

This was a real hard question #-o

Near the end leaving many Helicopters ... was always vertical screen during the game and the last phase ... flew out into space for the last fight.

After finishing the game, came back to start with a difficulty level much, much higher and still score every time you continued adding a game.

1982??... #-o
I think war mission was after 1985-86, or later :wink:

WAR MISSION, finally found and emulated since June 2018 (Mame version 0.199).

The state of the emulation for this game is still imperfect. But it works!
