About The Game

Cobra Command is a Laserdisc-based arcade video game which as the player ordered to get rid of a terrorist group which is committing crimes all over the world. Piloting your ultra-modern Jet Helicopter you have to confront your enemies. Carry out your mission!

You command a fully armed helicopter and must take on enemy helicopters, planes, tanks, and ships in order to destroy their stronghold on an area. Your missions take you though the forest, in the canyons, through the desert ruins, out to the pacific ocean, and right though New York City.

Trivia

Known in Japan as "Thunder Storm". Data East later released an unrelated shoot-em-up titled "Cobra-Command" in 1988.

Film Produced by Toei Animation Co., Ltd.

It was the second arcade game to incorporate the Laserdisc technology featuring cartoon animation.

The player's helicopter makes a cameo in "Double Dragon II - The Revenge" as soon as the hangar's door opens in the beginning of the game.
