[Coin-Op] Arcade Video Game
NAM-1975 © 1990 SNK [Shin Nihon Kikaku].
One or two players take control of 2 machine-gun carrying Vietnam vets who must shoot their way through a number of sideways scrolling, Vietnam-themed levels. the players shoot into the screen and aiming is achieved via the use an on-screen target, which each player directs to lock on to the various enemy troops and vehicles. Players can run and somersault to avoid the incoming enemy fire.
A number of more powerful weapons - such as grenades and flame throwers - are often dropped by the enemy and can be picked up and used. Bonus points are also revealed in this fashion.
Nam-1975 is a blatant plagiarism of TAD Corp's "Cabal
", released in September 1988. Cabal is easily the more accomplished of the two games.
