Jackal is a pretty good game, one of the best of its genre on the NES in my opinion. It has all the usual endless enemies and powerups but it also has the Choplifter-like hostage retrieval and dropoff. Gives it a little extra dimension. Has interesting bosses and terrain, too.


Definitely worth giving a play or two.
