Today I stumbled on the game, Doughboy. It's another
one that I'd never heard of, but found pretty good...
You control a soldier over
five levels and have to rescue the president that is
held captive in a small cell on level five. You need to
work your way through the levels and then guide him back
to safety. On your way you will encounter tanks,
missiles, enemy soldiers, ships, bunkers, trenches,
rivers, fences etc... the usual ingredients of a war
game. This is, however, a more light hearted and cuter
game than normal, and reminds me of the game Canon
Fodder. It's tricky, and at times will have you tearing
your hair out - but once you get into it, it can be a
lot of fun.
graphics are cute and all the levels are different so
the game play isn't repetitive.
We have lift-off...
Off they go...
HOW WAS IT COMPLETED?:
I used an infinite lives cheat.
SO WHAT HAPPENS?:
If you manage to break the president out of the cell and
make it back through the minefield, you have won the
game. An end scene shows the soldier and the president
being picked up by an allied forces plane in the
darkness, and then flying off into the distance. The
final screen is a message to Doughboy, congratulating
you on your teams success. You are awarded the
congressional medal of honour for you brave service.
