Cabinet Style Weights and Measures


Game Introduction

Players control their machine guns' aim with a cursor and make their soldier characters run and do sommersaults to the left and right in the foreground. The Viet Nam background slowly scrolls right to left and fills up with enemy soldiers, tanks, helicopters, etc.

Game Play

You can pick up more powerful weapons like machine guns and flame throwers. If you run while pressing down, you will do a sommersault and be invincible for a second. Enemies and scenery give up point icons and grenades. You cannot continue while fighting the last boss. The bosses are not the same every play.
