Metal Gear downloads
The game revolves around a special forces operative codenamed Solid Snake who goes into a solo infiltration mission into the fortified state of Outer Heaven to destroy Metal Gear, a bipedal walking tank capable of launching nuclear missiles from anywhere in the world.
The Famicom version of Metal Gear served as the basis of two computer ports that were released in 1990 for PC MS-DOS and the Commodore 64 in North America. The MS-DOS version contains many minor changes, such as a faster-depleting health bar.
