Operation Logic Bomb
Looking for an action game with plenty of weapons and shooting, yet still an engrossing adventure? Jaleco's Operation Logic Bomb serves up just such a mix. Sharp, detailed graphics and an ultra-hip soundtrack create the perfect atmosphere, so plug in and power up!
Red Alert! There has been a hostile takeover of the top-secret Subspace Particle Transfer Project Facility. All communications have been cut off, and it's feared that the technology being researched (Interdimensional Téléportation) has fallen into evil alien hands. Only agent Logan, a bionic super-soldier with superior strengths, reflexes, and analytical abilities, stands a chance of infiltrating the highly fortified compound to neutralize the intruders, rescue captured scientists, and save the Lab. If he fails, nuke the entire installation!
You, as Logan, make your way throughout 10 stacked levels of sealed rooms and locked doors. You'll need to destroy all the enemies on each level of this one-player game before a door will open to advance you to the next level. Sometimes you may even need to go back a few levels to continue on to higher levels in the game. You view all this action from a K overhead perspective.
Each level is packed with various alien henchmen out to scrap your metal hide.
Each type of enemy, such as robots, dragonflies, and other alien creatures, moves and attacks in a specific pattern, so it's easy to customize your defense and offense accordingly. Fortunately, you start the game with a single- and triple-shot laser, but only a limited power supply. Once your power runs out, you must start over at the beginning of the level you're currently on. There are only three continues, so make the most of your time. Five additional weapons (flamethrowers, reflecting lasers, homing missiles, holographic decoys, and time-delay mines) are yours for the taking, that is, if you can find them throughout the levels.
- Red robots only attack horizontally or vertically. Take 'em out safely by attacking them from an angle.
- Red robots can move only within a specific area. Sometimes it's just as effective to skirt around them rather than taking 'em out head-on.
- Blue robot sentries are immobile and fire in a clockwise or counterclockwise pattern.
Use your triple-shot laser to take out several at one time.
Perhaps the most effective weapon in your arsenal is your ability to hook up with the various Data Terminals scattered throughout each level. Data Terminals are capable of doing one of three things: providing a detailed map of the current level, restoring your power meter, or replaying a video recording of the alien takeover and hinting at how to defeat the aliens on that level. Use the map to find your way to the Transporter to the next level.
- Active Terminals are indicated by a flashing light. Some inactive Terminals may become activated by destroying nearby enemy forces.
- You must destroy the enemy alien guarding the Transporter before you use it.
Operation Logic Bomb features excellent fully rendered graphics. On-screen details and shadows create a believable sense of depth. The controls are easy to learn and extremely responsive to the action. For the most part, game play is challenging, mainly because of its lack of 1-ups and extra continues. The enemies aren't very difficult to take out. However, their sheer number turns it into a formidable task. Sharp stereo music and sound effects round out this solid game.
Although the shooting action isn't overly intense and its challenge isn't too daunting, Operation Logic Bomb provides a balanced mixture of the two. The captivating graphics and story line keep gamers hooked long enough to find out what happens in the end. Does Logan save the day? Log on and find out.

For fans of games like Metal Gear, this game should be a winner. Its graphics are pretty good, and the many weapons at your disposal tremendously add to the technique. The explosions might be a bit cheesy, but it's a small price to pay for a generally fun cart. The plot line of Operation Logic Bomb is really well done. The best part of this game is the non-stop action. If it's excitement you want, this game is packed full of it.
Looking for a 16-Bit version of the NES classic Metal Gear? Operation Logic Bomb has to be it! Although this game is a simple blast-a-thon, the variation of the weapons and levels more than makes up for its lack of involving strategy, except there are some secret rooms to find that have important weaponry in them. As with too many games today, this one is a bit on the easy side, however it is still fun to play.
I have to admit I wasn't expecting to like this game. I think this may be one of the sleeper games of the year. The intricate story line is very cool, but this cart's most outstanding feature is in its play control. Being able to lock your man in firing position, while moving in any direction, is a big plus. You can totally blow away the 'bots that come your way. An awesome version of Alien Syndrome, if I do say so myself!
Not since Alien Syndrome has a maze shooter been this fun. The weapons are very useful and the levels get rough quickly. However, the control is right there with you to aid in the shoot and dodge tactics. A big plus is the locking of your firing position and your weapon's quick response. Sharp looking graphics keep your eyes busy while your controller will always be kept busy! Cool weapon and story previews!
