Platoon box cover

Another faithful coin-op conversion by Quicksilver that was published by Data East, Platoon is a side-scrolling action game based on the hit movie of the same name. Nothing fancy here: shoot everything in sight, and find power-ups and ammos along the way. A fun game that's starting to show its age, especially when compared with newer releases such as Guerilla War. Good for nostalgia only.
