Rambo III (ランボーIII) is a 1989 overhead run-and-gun for the Sega Mega Drive by Sega to tie into the film Rambo III.

Gameplay

You play as John Rambo in various overhead shooting environments. C shoots; hold for rapidfire. You have three of special weapons; select with A and fire with B. You can use the knife as much as you want, but the crossbow and bombs can only be used if you have enough arrows/bombs; collecting squares with A on them collects arrows and collecting squares with B on them collects bomb. You can get hurt by your own bombs exploding — watch out! While you can move freely around, the screen will eventually lock you from backtracking. Getting hit three times will game over.
