Big Arnie - he's as hard as I-don't-know-what. In the latest computer representation of one of the big Austrian's films, you play the role of one Captain Ivan Danko, a Ruskie on an exchange visit in the USA. What is he doing here though? It seems that a certain Viktor Rostabilli is bringing drugs into the country, via the Soviet Union. Gorby is a bit perturbed at this so Danko - that's Arnie (and you) - is on the tail of the nasty pasty.
You begin in Moscow. Relaxing in a pleasant sauna you're attacked by a gang of hoodlums. Derobed, hence gun-less, it's your fist against a lot of unfriendly junkies. Then it's a swift hop over to Chicago, where Rostavilli was last spotted, for more of the same, only this time you're armed with a revolver - trouble is, so are your assailants!
Scattered around the different screens are power pellets and extra ammunition, which can be picked up by stooping. Crouching down also assists in getting out of the way of flying ammo, discharged at waist level by the armed drug-smugglers.
The action is displayed in a 'movie screen' style, with only the top-half of the action (and Arnie) shown, the rest of the screen being taken up by the status panel.
On completing a level, you are offered the chance of boosting your flagging energy via a test of strength. Your hand is shown, clenching a rock, and by waggling the joystick very quickly you must crush the stone. Not the sort of practice you'd expect from yer normal bobby on the beat, but then again, Arnie isn't, is he?
