SECTION 1-2
STORY
**********************************************************************

The story is based on the Award-Winning 1986 movie of the same name,
"Platoon." The story of the movie is as follows:
Chris Taylor (portrayed by Charlie Sheen) voulenteers for the army 
in 1967..He goes to fight in Vietnam, which is where all the story 
take place. 

Upon arriving in vietnam chris sees the rage of man, and mans worst emotions.
I won't reaveal big plot details,
but the movie itself is good, if you haven't seen it, it is worth a rent. 
Each of the missions is loosely based on a scene in the movie, 
Level one is the scene where the platoon goes to the village. 
Level 2 is the scene where Elias goes down into the tunnels.
Level 3 is the foxhole before the big climax fight at the end. 
Level 4 is a the climax fight, in which you must kill Sgt. Barnes 
before the Napalm is dropped.

Aim your sight over your flare gun
to light up the night sky and see your Vietnamese enemies, 
Aim well and shoot them, all you have to do is kill a set 
number of enemies. Easy. After you beat this level you must press 
fire to enter the next level......


*******************************************************************
SECTION 2 2-4
LEVEL FOUR
*******************************************************************

The Jungle Confrontation you must fight your way to Barnes's 
bunker and kill him, and make it there before the timer counts 
all the way down, and your own comrades use the napalm....this 
level is another maze....It sounds worse than it really is though...
follow these directions to get to the bunker....

From your starting point, go left. On the next screen, take a 
right....after this it is pretty easy, just keep going the only 
way the path will let you go until you come to another branch,
on this branch, take a right, 
then continue to go whichever way the game lets you go. 
You will eventually come to a bunker, with Sgt. 
Bob Barnes in it, and he is packing some serious heat: 
A machine gun that fires in 3 round bursts and hand grenades....
you have to get close enough to throw a grenade directly at him, 
it takes FIVE direct hits on Barnes to kill him. 
After you kill him the ending will roll.

to him, you see the helicopter ascend from the ground and take off.

   FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
**********************************************************************

A: Those are enemy trip wires, jump over them.
