'''''Rush'n Attack''''', also known as '''''Green Beret''''' in certain versions, is a side-scrolling action game by {{Konami}} originally released for the arcades in 1986 in which a U.S. Special Forces soldier must fight his way into a Siberian prison occupied by Soviet soldiers in order to rescue a group of American [=P.O.Ws=] that are about to be executed. The player is armed primarily with a combat knife for close range attack, but can acquire a variety of other weapons (a rocket launcher, a flamethrower, or grenades) from defeating certain enemy soldiers. Since the weapons acquired from enemies have limited ammo, one button is used for the standard knife attack, while the second button is used for special weapons. Since both action buttons are used for attacks, jumping is done the ''VideoGame/KungFuMaster'' way, by pressing the joystick up, which is also used for climbing ladders.

* NintendoHard: The NES version is ''extremely'' unforgiving. On top of that, the KonamiCode didn't work for this title.

An NES version of ''Rush'n Attack'' in 1987 and like most NES games that were based on a popular arcade game, it is more of a remixed version than a straight port. In addition to having an entirely different plot (where the objective is now to destroy a top-secret weapon), it also features new stages, enemies, and music, as well as a 2-Players simultaneous mode similar to ''{{Contra}}'' (which was released for the arcades around the same time).
