G.I. Joe was released in May 1992.

This game is mainly based in the 1980's comic books and animation series by Marvel which were based on the ever popular G.I. Joe toy line created for Hasbro Toys by Stan Weston in 1964. The G.I. Joe line were the first Action Figure toys, a term created to avoid the use of the term 'Dolls for boys'.

Players can choose from four G.I. Joe characters: Duke, Scarlett, Snake-Eyes and Roadblock. Enemies include Viper soldiers and various Cobra vehicles such as FANG II, HISS II, Razorback and Hurricane. The bosses consist of Tomax and Xamot, Metal-Head, The Baroness, Major Bludd and Destro. The final battle takes place between the G.I. Joe team and Cobra Commander.
