During the mid 80s, the military genre was very popular in movies and television shows. On the tube, B.A. Barackus, Hannibal, and Faceman blew stuff up every week in The A-Team. In theaters, Stallone was Rambo in First Blood Part II, Arnie was simply a Commando, and Chuck Norris (before attaining internet omnipotence) headlined Delta Force. Video games, too, followed this trend, and the military themed Ikari Warriors was one example, featuring two player co-op.
