This war game, setting is the Vietnam war, in three sections looks promising at first sight. But all parts are cheap copies of other game, Live and Let Die, Platoon and Operation Wolf. This looks too fast fast done. All the fonts are ripped from scene demos...

				Butcher Hill


Section One - The River
Travel along the river in your inflatable dinghy to one of the three
jetties. Your progress will be hampered by natural obstacles such as
twists in the river, boulders and reeds. You must also avoid floating
mines and a barrage of gunfire from the enemy aircraft.

Fortunately, allied planes are occasionally able to drop first-aid,
ammunition and bonus packs. You must steer through the fast flowing river
to collect bonuses.

Section Two - The Jungle
Leaving your dinghy behind you venture into the jungle with only your
compass and the knowledge that the enemy village is to the North East. As
you make your way through the dense vegetation, you come across clearings
where the enemy forces have set up supply depots. These depots are guarded
by enemy forces. You must eliminate them. Under the threat of being

With the enemy forces now aware of your presence in the area. Beware of
sudden reprisals. Should an enemy sniper jump out in front of you, aim
your gunsight and shoot.

Watch out for land mines!

Section Three - The Village
You have battled your way along the river and through the dense jungle to
the enemy village which is in the shadow of Butcher Hill.

Use your machine gun and grenades to eliminate the enemy soldiers who will
be running towards you. Beware of the soldier who will be hiding out in
buildings. Shoot at the windows to eliminate them. Alternatively throw one
of your grenades to destroy the building.

The game is complete once all of the buildings in the village have been
destroyed......only then are you the conqueror of Butcher Hill.
