Thunder Fox (World)


Thunder Fox (c) 08/1990 Taito.


The world is being overrun by terrorists! Not to worry, since two super soldiers are on the case of wiping out this threat. Features nice graphics and sound, along with solid side-scrolling "Rolling Thunder" style action as well as some side scrolling shooter stages to mix things up.

- TRIVIA -


As odd as it may sound, this is one of the very few game that lets you use melee attacks with some firearms without actually firing a single shot, this allows you to use these only when you really need extra firepower! It is so strange that this idea is not used more often! :)


- UPDATES -


The US version is slightly different, it has the "Winners Don't Use Drugs" screen.
