Your Mission, Should You Choose To Accept It: Complete Six Levels Of Side-Scrolling Mayhem!
Ad for a 1990 Mission: Impossible Nintendo game based on the '88-'90 revival series. The copy makes it sound as if it had more to do with Duke Nukem-type side-scrollers than any familiar incarnation of the famous TV show. Apparently players contended with villains like Slash Stiletto, Blitz Blizzardski, the Iron Claw and the Sinister Seven with rifles, firebombs and remote control cluster bombs. "Remember," the ad warns, "should you choose to accept this mission and fail, you, your Nintendo, and the world will self-destruct in five seconds."
