NES High Score Club Week #12 - Rush'n Attack


Recommended Posts

The brawling doesn't end! Land your toad-y spaceship and go back to the Cold War; it's time for Rush'n Attack!


Post a score and let's get this thing rolling!


Please post any tips you may have - best tip gets 1 bonus point!


Also, if anyone has a link to the manual, please post it.


Special Leeching note: this game appears to allow unlimited leeching, since the enemies don't stop coming and there is no time limit. Nonetheless, please do not leech by staying in one place killing enemies endlessly. Thanks. :)

BTW: Is it supposed to be part of the Contra series of games?


Nope. It was a seperate game. It was called Green Beret in other countries (where the joke didn't work).


Interestingly the NES version adds a few new levels (the machine gun towers for one) and changes the last boss. I never like it for that reason.

I love the thrill of killing Commies in the morning. :D


(For those who don't get the joke, it's supposed to be 'Russian Attack' where you're infiltrating Russia to destroy their new top secret weapon. Naturally, this was made during the Cold War, when the USSR was still our enemy.)

I got to the last level once about... 18 years ago, but died there. Today I played about 10 times before finally breaking through and having a much better game.


For great justice.

I did it. Add this game to the beaten list. :)



I died on the boss of level 5 my 2nd time through. The difficulty didn't change at all on the 2nd lap, so it wouldn't be too hard for a bored person to max this out. 3 laps would do it.
