Narazumo Sentou Butai - Bloody Wolf © 1989 Data East Corp.
Bloody Wolf is a straightforward war action game by Data East and is the conversion of an arcade game released by the same company in 1988. The Bloody wolf special forces have decided to send one of their best men (either Snake or Eagle) on a perilous rescue mission to save the president. Armed with a heavy machine gun with unlimited ammo and a handful of grenades, he must rescue the president kept captive by an army of terrorists. To fulfill his duty, our soldier must fight his way through eight levels, from an uninviting town to a deep and impenetrable jungle. Special crates scattered throughout the game hide power-ups and new weapons, and the soldier is able to equip a secondary weapon that ranges from a Spread Shotgun to a Flame Thrower, a Rocket Launcher or powerful Hand Grenades. He can drive motorbikes and investigate houses, buildings, trucks and caves - they often hide hostages that give the player special items and vital information. As a side note, this conversion of the game can only be played in single-player mode.
Bloody Wolf for PC-Engine was released on September 01, 1989 in Japan for 6500 Yen.
Bloody Wolf was initially released as an arcade game in 1988 by Data East. Two players could simultaneously play in the arcade version unlike the PC Engine conversion which only features a single-player mode. The PC Engine also includes an extra stage and the levels are overall larger.
