The object of the game depends on whose side you're on -- the G.I. Joe Special Mission Forces or Cobra. If you're playing as G.I. Joe, the object is to destroy the Cobra while protecting the G.I. Joes. If you're playing as the Cobra, the object is to capture four G.I. Joes before G.I. Joe destroys you.

TRIVIA

Killing the 15th cobra causes the initials JE (for John Emerson) to appear. This can be done on either 1 or 2 player variations.

Parker Brothers held a contest in which you could win a Black Cobra Cap if you reached the 16th level.
