Special Forces

Author: Manu - Published: 3 August 2022, 1:30 pm

Special Forces is a tactical action game with stealth elements created by MicroProse and released in 1992 for the Amiga, Atari ST, and MS-DOS. It's the sequel of Airborne Ranger, an 8-bit game released five years earlier.

While Airborn Ranger was developed internally at MicroProse, MicroProse commissioned the creation of Special Forces to a small studio called Sleepless Knights. The game designer was Jim Bambra.

You control a team of four soldiers who will need to perform several special missions, including rescuing hostages, assassinating evil criminals, destroying enemy bases, etc. It's not a real strategy game, like Jagged Alliance, and it's not turn-based like Laser Squad. There is not much time to think in Special Forces since everything happens in real-time: you have to act, hide and run; otherwise, not all of the team will make it back to the base.
