G.I. Joe: Cobra Strike

G.I. Joe: Cobra Strike is the title of a video game released for the Atari 2600 in 1983. The game was developed and published by Parker Brothers and involves three different types of gameplay. The game is loosely based on the G.I. Joe franchise of the same name. The U.K. version of the game was renamed Action Man: Action Force.

G.I. Joe: Cobra Strike Gameplay

In the single-player mode, the player controls a G.I. Joe training camp on the bottom of the screen protected by a barrier and armed with two laser cannons. In this mode the goal is to keep the giant Cobra-operated robot snake from destroying the shield and thus the training camp by hitting it eight times. The Cobra robot shoots venom and laser beams.

In two-player cooperative mode control of the G.I. Joe training game is split between two players as they work to destroy the Cobra robot. In the two-player competition mode one player controls the Cobra robot and another player controls the training camp.

ReceptionJeremy Parish of Retronauts blog felt that this game "had about as much to do with G.I. Joe as any other licensed game from that era, which is to say not a whole hell of a lot", comparing it to the E.T. video game for the Atari system.

Allgame review noted that G.I. Joe: Cobra Strike is best played multi-player; the "graphics are decent" and the "sounds are only average".
