Game Summary

Super Thunder Blade - In this follow-up to Thunder Blade, gamers take control of a new and improved attack helicopter in a series of attacks against guerilla armies that are bent on taking over the world.  Although your aircraft is formidable, enemies are vast and varied including submarines, tanks, fighter planes, and more.  Commanding this state-of-the-art battle copter must be top-notch. Players must dodge oncoming fire, use various weapons to eliminate all enemy targets, and ultimately destroy a top-secret guerilla base.
