Arnie II

Arnie II

Arnie II, developed by Zeppelin Games in 1993, is a computer game and sequel to "Arnie".

"Arnie has been chosen to perform four missions that require stealth, skill and extreme violence." This quote from the game's manual sums it up pretty well.

Your average muscleman shoots and bombs his way through four enemy-infested territories:

#Shutting down a chemical plant by blowing up enough pipeline valves.
#Clear an airfield from enemy soldiers, tanks and helicopters.
#Climb from battleship to battleship in a hostile harbour.
#Finally, rescue as many prisoners as possible from a jungle POW camp.

Naturally, the levels are crawling with enemies: from simple infantry armed with rifles, mortars or rocket launchers to MG teams, missile batteries and tanks. Most of the opponents are stationary and stolidly fire in a single direction; however, foxholes spew out cannon-fodder at a constant rate.

To destroy such nests or efficiently dispatch groups of soldiers, Arnie has a limited supply of grenades. Some deceased foes drop more powerful weapons as well as invaluable first aid kits and extra lives.

Although it's obvious to which Hollywood actor the game's name alludes, "Arnie II" is not a licensed title and not based on any movie.
