Sarge Bally Sente Inc. / Capcom U.S.A., Inc. 1989

Release Date: 1989 This is a top-down shooter where the goal is to stop the invading terrorists by controlling a tank and a helicopter. All enemy forces must be destroyed in each level. Two-player mode facilitates gameplay by adding two more units on the battlefield. It's a fun game from the masters of arcade, Capcom, and is a decent conversion of the Bally arcade game of the same name that was semi-popular in the 1980s. The goal is straightforward: destroy all enemy forces in each level. You control a tank and a helicopter, both of which must work in tandem to succeed. Timing of shots is critical, as the tank has a certain level of inertia when moving, and you must shoot where the enemy tank will be when the shot lands, not where he presently is. Needless to say, two-player mode is a lot more fun because you have the help of two more units on the battlefield. As you progress through each level, you will be promoted from Private when your scores are high enough, and awarded new units to command. There's not much more to say about Sarge: it's a fun beer-and-pretzel game that is great for whiling away some time when you are waiting for the next breakthrough in action gaming. Anyone looking for a more complex tank game should try Fire Power instead.
