  • This Arcade Video game was published 29 years ago:

    Thunder Fox © 1990 Taito Corp.

    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.

    TECHNICAL
    Runs on the "Taito F2 System" hardware. It used a graphics extension on the board, the so called Taito F2 Expanded System.

    Prom Stickers: C28

    Players: 2
    Control: 8-way joystick
    Buttons: 3 (ATTACK, JUMP, SPECIAL WEAPON)

    TRIVIA
    Thunder Fox was released in August 1990.

    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 has the 'Winners Don't Use Drugs' screen.

    TIPS AND TRICKS
    • Timer Bonus: If you destroy the bosses quickly, you can get bonus points.
