Veteran Combat is a 2D side-scrolling (arcade) fighting game for PC.
Be the leader of a small military unit from the 1940s. By defeating fifteen opponents, your goal is to convince the other members of the team that you are the one in charge. The fighting takes place in a tournament consisting of twelve scenes.
Twelve selectable characters and three hidden main opponents await the player. Playable characters include Igor the grenadier, Julia the nurse, Captain Ballast the sailorman, Dr. Bloodpressure the field surgeon, Natasha the spy, as well as several others emerging from the milieu of the 1940s.
As for control, Veteran Combat follows the usual and proven standards used in other games of the genre, thus the basics can easily be mastered. Practicing the use of combos and hidden key combinations allows more spectacular and effective charges on the opponents.
Please read the manual.
Fields of Battle
The fighting takes place on twelve exciting locations, such as the wings of a plane flight, the top of a traveling train, or even the dizzy heights of a viaduct.
All the scenes of the game are filled with the musical ambience of the 1940s, be it in a smoky pub or the dubious and fishy piers.
Apart from the regular punches and kicks, several combo movements can be called forth. Through hidden key combinations ten kinds of extra attacks and wizardry, peculiar to almost each character, can be involved.
Choose your skill
The three adjustable difficulty levels (from novice to professional) provide for three different levels of challenge in tournaments.
Replay – when you need evidence
The duels can be recorded and played back, so there is no need to assert that you have really defeated this or that hidden character.
