- Terminal Terror
Picking up Bruno Riggs was like a
page out of the Covert Operations
Manual of the Central Intelligence
Agency. The flight back from
Guatemala was uneventful, everything
went down without a hitch. Bruno
Riggs was about to be brought to
justice after eluding every
international law enforcement agency
for six years.
International Public Enemy
Bruno Riggs' rise to infamy in the
underworld began at an early age. At
18, Riggs controlled the south
side of town. Any drug traffic came
through him or it didn't go through at
all. He ruled with an iron hand and
handed out merciless punishment for
those who crossed him. No one dared
question his authority. By the time
he turned 21, he owned the city.
Though Bruno Riggs was known to
control a huge drug ring in the U.S.,
the hard evidence needed for a
conviction was almost impossible to
get. When it looked like a court case
was finally coming together for the
Attorney General, witnesses started
changing their stories or disappeared
Then one day, Riggs himself
disappeared. Rumors were rampant
about his demise. Stories circulated
about a suicide, an old girl friend
getting even or a disgruntled hired-
gun taking matters into his own hands.
Whatever the truth, Bruno Riggs had
vanished without a trace.
Every major agency swung into high
gear: the CIA, the FBI, Interpol.
They knew he was alive. They just
didn't know where he was hiding.
Just when the file was about to be
closed, the authorities got a break.
Juan Valdez, a young geology student
from a university in Guatemala, was
working a summer job at the local
government records office. While he
was checking to ensure all permits
were up to date, he came across a
large tract of land which had been
purchased six years earlier for oil
exploration in a remote part of
Guatemala. The permit allowed the
land owner to import heavy equipment
and explosives. Yet Juan thought it
quite strange any company would apply
for such a permit when it was commonly
known that no oil was present in
that particular part of the country.
Within hours of Juan's discovery, law
enforcement offices were abuzz.
Aerial reconnaissance photos showed
a lightly guarded compound with
several unattached buildings partially
covered by vegetation. What
appeared to be a long-abandoned
road was actually a disguised runway.
Obviously someone was quite intent
on keeping his presence a secret.
A decision was made to take the
compound by force. The finest
international agents were brought
together to pay a visit on this
unknown resident. With any luck,
Bruno Riggs' disappearance might
They hit the compound at 5 A.M.
Moments later, all resistance was
eliminated. An incredible amount of
drugs, guns and several different
currencies was captured. But more
importantly, Bruno Riggs, still in his
pajamas, was taken into custody.
Flight to Beauford, Louisiana:
Now all that remained was just one
final stop for refueling at the
converted SAC (Strategic Air Command)
air base in Beauford, Louisiana and
then off to a secret location where
Bruno Riggs would be held under wraps
awaiting trial. Everything was going
according to schedule.
The highest security measures had been
taken to prevent any possible
information leak to the media that
could jeopardize the mission. There
were no reporters, no film crews and
no media hounds of any kind when they
touched down in Louisiana. It looked
like all the precautions were paying
off and everyone could now finally sit
back and relax...or so they thought.
But it never fails...just when you
think you've got it made, someone
shows up to ruin your party.
And this party ended with a hail of
bullets. What seemed like a normal
ground crew turned out to be Riggs'
highly trained terrorist group. Using
the fortune made from selling crack
cocaine to kids, Bruno Riggs had
recruited a formidable group of paid
assassins. His trained killers struck
quickly and accurately, dealing death
to anyone in their way, armed or
unarmed. Innocent civilians perished
without cause or provocation. Many
seasoned CIA agents were caught
totally unaware and died in the line
Little did anyone know that Bruno
Riggs and his people had secretly
taken over the abandoned section of
the SAC airbase. They had been
using it for years to move drugs and
money in and out of the country.
Several areas had been fortified in
case anyone became aware of their
It was not a coincidence that the
chartered flight would make this
airfield its refueling stop. Many
influential people were financially
persuaded to aid in the escape of this
Fortunately, the plan to fly Bruno
Riggs to freedom was fouled by
one of his own men who, in a fit of
anger, gunned down the airplane's
During the first minutes of the melee,
backup police and a joint CIA/FBI
force moved in quickly to secure the
perimeter. No one dared go in after
Bruno Riggs because there were too
many hostages. Besides, everyone knew
it was only a matter of time before
demands would be made by Riggs.
Everyone knew that sooner or later
more innocent lives would be lost at
the hands of this maniacal madman.
Everyone knew there was only one man
for the job: YOU...NICK HUNTER.
As a highly decorated specialist in
counter-terrorism with DEEP
(Department of Elaborate Engagement
Protocols), a disjointed arm of the
CIA, you are a far cry from the
stereotypical Vietnam era snake-
eating, muscle-bound Rambo commando.
You are the epitome of the ultimate
soldier, using intellect, cunning and
lightning speed to achieve his
objectives. Brute force is only a
matter of necessity, nothing more,
nothing personal. Armed with the most
exotic weapons and equipment, you are
a master of infiltration and escape,
adept in all aspects of combat
engineering, including demolition,
ambush, recon and subterranean
As the top agent of DEEP's ultra-low
profile Stealth Group, you are a
master of weapons and disguise. It
was always easy for you to infiltrate
an organization and quickly gain a
position of responsibility. But this
assignment involves quite a different
set of circumstances. There will be
no easy way in and you know it.
The plan calls for you to be dropped
off at the end of the runway where you
will engage the enemy almost
immediately. You and your Huey
Gunship will be sitting ducks. You
will have to be quick and deadly or
you and the chopper will be toast.
Your mission is to eliminate any
perimeter forces and move into the
hangar and dispose of any resistance.
Once in control of the hangar, you
must slowly move through the airport
and neutralize Riggs' henchmen.
Keep in mind that there are many
innocent civilians depending on you to
keep them out of the line of fire.
You must also gain access to the main
power line and help restore power to
the control tower. Flights are still
operating and this potentially lethal
situation must be averted.
It is also rumored that Bruno Riggs'
men have discovered the entrance to
the sewer tunnels running between the
closed SAC hangar and the converted
airport terminal. There is high
probability that if they found the
sewer system, weapons stored in secret
SAC tunnels could now be in their
hands. They must be stopped.
The sewer tunnels also contain another
danger, alligators! As if a bunch of
wild men running around with guns
weren't bad enough, now you have to
contend with possibility of stepping
on something with very sharp teeth.
And just to add one further element of
terror, reports say that Riggs has
discovered two CIA undercover agents
working in his midst. One of the
agents is Susan Riker. She is
reportedly chained to a jet fuel
storage tank that might be wired with
a time bomb. You don't like this
information one bit. Especially
since Susan Riker happens to be your
But your most important assignment
tonight is to recapture Bruno Riggs.
He must not escape. He must be
brought in alive to stand trial for
his crimes against humanity. No more
innocent lives can be lost.
