THE FIGHT AGAINST TYRANNY CONTINUES... The new nation of Turtalia is caught in a death struggle with the evil Doradan state. Warfare has spread to San Francisco, where a determined band of guerillas is holding out in the hills watching the destruction of this once beautiful city. You?re at an altitude of two thousand feet, scanning the horizon with computer-enhanced binoculars. You?re in constant contact with the forces on the ground led by Captain Ricardo and the ranger lieutenant who had spoken earlier at the meeting with Sellers, the guerrilla leader. Suddenly, clouds envelop your helicopter and the radio is knocked out. The clouds contain a choking, blinding gas. You and your pilot reach for the oxygen equipment, but the pilot slumps forward and stops breathing. A crimson circle appears on his uniform over his heart. He's dead! If you decide to bail out, turn to page 80. If you decided to try and land the helicopter yourself, turn to page 16. YOU choose what happens next!
