    Walkthrough for "Rambo" by Acclaim done by 'tsr' on 27.10.95
    OK. First off, When I say to go 'north' or 'south', that means you go looking
    for the little box on the ground that says either N or S and press up (that's
    the equivalent of going north or south in this game..)
    I think this game wasn't coded very well.. sometimes it gives passwords that
    are just plain WRONG; I got so sick of this that I eventually got not one
    but three passwords at each area before turning off my NES..
    All right. Talk to everyone you see at the start of the game (I personally
    enjoy telling Trautman that "I feel safer in prison" about 5842382245 times,
    just to see if he'll finally relent and let me stay in prison.. so anyway)
    Don't forget to grab some weapons before you go (throught the door). Once
    you actually land in the jungle, immediately go north three times, and you'll
    run into Co. Talk to her.. hmm.. Go south twice, and head left to the boat..
    and then exit the scene going right..! kupo
    Now for the second part. You enter this part twice during the game, some-
    thing that confused me greatly when I encountered it.. from area one, head
    right after jumping off the boat. Go north four times and you'll end up in
    the caves. Rescue the child, and kill off the spider to get a heart. Go
    south twice, go right and find the guy behind the door who proudly exclaims
    "Replenish life!" Go through five south exits and head right into the enemy
    Go right and go north twice. Go right and yer at the first POW. Yay. Go back
    to where you were (go left, south twice, and left). Continue left and go
    north three times and head left for the next area.
    Now you get to have some real fun - you have to jump across these cliffs,
    continually going left. To be more exact, go left, north three times, left,
    and start jumping. Eventually you find the enemy camp, and a nice heli-
    copter as well... ... oops ... you got captured.  doh.  kupo.
    Well, thank god for Co, who helps you escape. Go right, south once. Go right
    and you'll find a door leading to the "replenish life!" guy again. Keep on
    going right and you're at the water scene.
    Go right, right to the middle of the waterfall, then drop down to the center
    of the waterfall. Exit north. Enter the caves and go continually right to
    exit them again (don't forget to kill off the tiger thingy for another
    heart). Go to the center of the waterfalls, drop to the bottom, and run into
    Co. Exit right.
    Well, OK, you cut through the fence .. and wow it's a freaking helicopter!
    Hopefully by now you've acquired a nice cache of life potions, because you'll
    be needing them now. You'll need lots of grenades too kupo. Just start throw-
    ing grenades at the copter; it'll take fifty (50) to destroy it. All during
    this time, of course, soldiers are dropping down. Use arrows or whatever to
    kill 'em; some of 'em give you more grenades and/or arrows.
    Eventually, you destroy the helicopter. kupo. I would like to take a moment
    to have you reflect on the fact that I am using 1994-era moogle-terminology
    while telling you how to complete a 1988-era game. Why am I pausing? Because
    we are about to come to the most horribly terrible part of the game .. you
    go right after killing the copter, find your pick-up helicopter and are 
    rewarded with the message "YOU NEED KEY TO FLY HELICOPTER." doh!
    OK, go left and enter the first door. Go right and head up some stairs. Go
    south and go to the right. Kneel on the (thin) floor and jump down. Go left
    and north, then left and up the stairs to another thin-floor. Kneel and
    jump down (through only one floor). Go left to the door and enter, and hey
    presto, you found the key! Yeahaahahahahah.. Go right, fall through two
    floors, go right, north, and left to the exit door. whew..
    Go back to your helicopter and press Up. You're almost done!
    Once you stop flying, go south. Go left for awhile and then north. Be sure
    to get the max. number of life potions while you're here, then go right
    and free the second POW. Go left, north, right, south, and you're done!
    Have fun, be happy, talk to everyone and shoot Murdock to see what happens...
    Now it's time for some passwords.
