Based on the Creator/{{Hasbro}} [[Franchise/GIJoe toyline turned cartoon series]], the Joes must stop Cobra Commander and his forces from terrorizing the world after terrorizing various cities with their latest weapon.

Depending on the cabinet, up to two or four players can select Duke, Snake Eyes, Scarlett or Roadblock to attack and defeat Cobra forces with a gun with [[BottomlessMagazines unlimited ammo]] and two [[SmartBomb screen clearing flash bombs]]. [[PowerUp Power-ups]] can be found hidden within [[CrateExpectations the various barrels]] littered across the stages. The game has three missions containing seven stages and six bosses including a final confrontation with Cobra Commander himself.

!!Tropes:
* [[spoiler: ActuallyADoombot: The first battle with Cobra Commander]]
* AdaptationDistillation: The Joes and most of the bosses come from the original cartoon produced by [[Creator/SunbowEntertainment Sunbow]]. Metal-Head, the Cobra {{Mook}}s, the Chemical Plant theme and Joes' costumes all come from the [[Creator/DICEntertainment DiC]] cartoon.

* CrateExpectations
* DeathCryEcho
* DieChairDie: Pretty much everything except the background itself (and even that in at least one stage) is destroyable. Considering that [[RewardingVandalism you can sometimes get powerups]] from them, and the fact that you're always running through a COBRA base, you're pretty much encouraged to.
