Operation Thunderbolt - Amiga 500 Hints and Tips

Game Review & Description

Gear up and get ready to unleash a hailstorm of bullets in Operation Thunderbolt, the Amiga 500's answer to every action movie ever screamed at by a drill sergeant. This isn't just a game; it's a one-way ticket to a time when heroes wore bandanas, and the solution to every problem was a well-placed rocket launcher. Welcome to the 80s, baby, where the arcades were king, and the mullets were mandatory.

Operation Thunderbolt invites you to step into the combat boots of the world's most formidable duo, tasked with rescuing hostages from the clutches of a villain so dastardly, he makes movie bad guys look like they're auditioning for a role in a high school play. The graphics are a pixelated love letter to action-packed escapades, with detailed sprites and backdrops that pull you into a world under siege. Each level is a meticulously crafted scene of chaos, from war-torn cities to the inner sanctums of the enemy's lair, all rendered with the kind of care that makes you want to salute your screen.

The gameplay is as straightforward as a missile flight path: aim, shoot, and reload. But don't let the simplicity fool you; Operation Thunderbolt demands precision, quick reflexes, and a strategic mind to conserve ammunition and pick off threats. You're armed with an arsenal that would make any action hero nod in approval, including machine guns, grenades, and the trusty sidearm for when things get too close for comfort.

But what truly sets Operation Thunderbolt apart is its co-op mode, a feature that doubles the fun and the firepower. Bringing a friend into the fray turns the game into a symphony of destruction, with bullets flying faster than witty one-liners in a buddy cop movie. The soundtrack, with its pulse-pounding beats, only adds to the adrenaline, making each level feel like the climax of an action blockbuster.

The challenge ramps up with each mission, throwing at you a variety of enemies that are as diverse as they are deadly. From foot soldiers to armored vehicles, each requires a different tactic, ensuring that the gameplay stays fresh and engaging from start to heroic finish.

For those ready to dive headfirst into the action, a cache of hints, tips, and cheat codes lies below, ready to arm you with the knowledge needed to take your game to the next level. Whether it's finding the best spots to take cover or unlocking the most effective weapons to dismantle the enemy's ranks, these secrets are your ace in the hole. So grab your joystick, call in your backup, and prepare to embark on a mission that's all about action, explosions, and, of course, Operation Thunderbolt.


There's no doubt that laser sight gives all but the most natural shooters a huge advantage. Rather than bothering to earn this ability legitimately, try starting the game by pressing F8 or F9 instead of F1 or F2.

Alternatively, you could achieve the same effect by racking up 50,000 points or more, making your way onto the high score table and entering SPECCY MODE as your name.
