Mobile edition of the classic action game Cinemaware studio from 1988. The title is an exact copy of the original from years ago and is run thanks to a software emulation of Amiga computer, on which it was originally released. The original content of the game is complemented by the use of touch screens and mobile game controllers, as well as the original manual.
The year 1940. Germans have already captured almost the whole Europe and are preparing for a much larger operation, which is to cover the whole world. The Lunarium, a cosmic mineral that can only be found on the moon, is supposed to help them to do this. It is the main component of the rocket fuel necessary for the mass production of the ballistic missiles with which the Nazis want to bring the world to its knees. However, there is hope that these plans will be cancelled out. American scientists, based on the Lunarium stolen from German warehouses, have developed a prototype of a jet rucksack that a single soldier can carry wherever the soul desires. A special agent, known to the wider public as Rocket Ranger.
The main task of the title character is to collect 500 pieces of Lunarium and all components of German missiles. With the help of this assortment, the Rocket Ranger’s laboratory will create a special version of the jet backpack, which will be able to take it to the moon. All key elements are located in heavily guarded German military bases. Before you can penetrate the data in person, you must first use the services of your intelligence network, which will determine in which ports the equipment you are looking for is located. Giving orders to spies is the only aspect of strategic colouring. You can determine whether your agents are to work faster or not (in the latter case there is less chance of falling into misfortunes). In addition, you can group all the spies together, which increases the chances of defeating the Nazi regime. With more information, you can join the action. You start by distributing the Lunarium (it’s worth remembering that it’s better to take more of it during longer journeys), then there’s a rather cumbersome take-off and finally a flight. While in the air, you are attacking enemy targets, such as Luftwaffe planes or airships. Here the gameplay is typically arcade (your manual skills are more important than strategic planning).
In Rocket Ranger, Cinemaware has once again reached for a tried and tested model of creating a product that cannot be pigeonholed. Here we have elements of the classic action game, adventures and an extremely important strategic factor. They are of no value separately, but when we combine them together and explore the resulting conglomerate, it turns out that Rocket Ranger is a great proposition for enthusiasts requiring entertainment.
