- Mixing childhood imagination with real-world environments, 3DO’s Army Men brings to life the plastic military units we played with as kids.
- It’s tactical action like you’ve always imagined: Melt ’em, shoot ’em, and blow ’em up, just like you did back then.
- But be careful–this time they shoot back.
It’s war! Watch those plastic, green, and tan toy-soldier figurines come to life and vie for supremacy in this squad-level real-time action/strategy hybrid. In Army Men, you take on the role of Sarge, a grizzled veteran leading his troops through desert, alpine, and bayou settings, grabbing weapon power-ups and blasting your way to victory. Call in air strikes and paratrooper drops. Steal tanks and jeeps for destructive uses. Almost everything can be destroyed in this gasoline-soaked world. Soldiers die in a manner appropriate to the weapon that killed them: rifles break off plastic limbs, flame-throwers melt them into puddles of goo, and rockets send them flying into little bits. Both action and strategy elements are in abundance.
