This game was released on the Sega CD, Saturn and Playstation
(the latter two only being available in Japan.) Cobra Command was
known as Thunder Storm FX in Japan, so if you shop around for an
import copy for your console, that's the name you want to mention
to the dealer as it's highly doubtful that he/she would know the name
of the U.S. coin-op release. In terms of gameplay, there's not too
much else to say about this one. You're a helicopter pilot who blows
away the bad helicopters! Oops, I gave away the ending.
The lame NES version of Cobra Command is based on ANOTHER 1984
arcade game by Data East - remember, the original Japanese version
of the U.S. laserdisc Cobra Command was called Thunder Storm FX --
called Cobra Command. This arcade game was a side scrolling shooter,
and you still controlled a helicopter.
