About The Game

Silent Scope is a 3-D arcade video game shoot-em-up where the player takes the role of a sniper.


Cobra and Hornet, the 2 bosses for stage 1 have their codenames based on Konami's Cobra Hardware (which runs the 1997 fighting game "Fighting Bujitsu") and Hornet hardware (which runs Silent Scope).

The twin bosses codenamed 'Tom and Jerry' have their code name inspired by the cartoon cat and mouse duo of the same name.

The female boss, Monica is probably named after Monica Lewinsky who was the intern involved in a scandal with then president Bill Clinton.
