You play a secret agent codenamed “Albatross”, a member of the Rolling Thunder team. Your mission is to stop the criminal organization known as Geldra, rescue Agent Lelia Blitz and eventually overthrow Geldra’s leader Maboo.
Rolling Thunder was produced by Atari Games in 1986.
Atari Games released 86 different machines in our database under this trade name, starting in 1984.
This is a horizontal-scrolling shooter that is very similar to Shinobi. There are two levels you can walk on and to change levels, simply push the joystick up and press the Jump button.
There are many doors that lie along your path. Some of the doors are labelled and you can enter those rooms to pick-up more ammo or weapon upgrades. Doors that are not labeled often have enemies exiting them. In a pinch, you can duck inside a doorway to avoid a grenade or an enemy jumping on top of you, but do not stay in too long or you will end up fighting against several more enemies.
The player character only has eight units of energy — two hits, and you are dead.
