About The Game

Green Beret is a horizontally scrolling platform arcade video game.

Move soldier to the right of the screen and destroy the enemy soldiers by pressing 'Knife Button'. By destroying the enemy commanding officer you are able to capture his weapon (a flame thrower, a rocket gun or hand grenades). These special weapons will destroy the enemy soldiers en masse.

Use the shoot button to activate the special weapons you have captured.

Jump or lie down to avoid the enemy bullets. Avoid the mines by climbing the ladders, buildings, etc. During the last battle at the end of each stage, crack troops from the enemy will attack, destroy them to advance to the next level.

The game is completed when you have rescued the captives at the end of the fourth stage.


Released in October 1985.

This game is known in US as "Rush'n Attack".

Also manufactured by Irem as the same name.

Tips and tricks

  • Go wild using weapons! : The weapon-providing character appears frequently. You don't have to be thrifty.
  • Watch out for ladders! : When a ladder is nearby, you will climb it up/down instead of jumping/crouching. Be careful.
  • Watch the enemy carefully : Enemies attacking from a distance always move in a particular way. Watch carefully!
  • How to destroy mines ? : Destroy mines with grenades.
  • Use the knife rapidly : If enemies come from both the left and right, rapidly use the knife and face both directions.
  • Learn enemy appearance patterns : There are certain difficult points in the game. Learn how enemies appear and come up with a way to overcome the situation.
