Rolling Thunder is an arcade game by Namco. The player takes control of a secret agent codenamed Albatross, who must save agent Leila Blitz from Geldra, an evil organization led by an alien named Maboo. The game is noted for its ridiculously hard difficulty. The last level is one of the hardest levels in video game history. Thankfully, there is an invincibility option in the service mode. Rolling Thunder saw its way to many consoles and home computers.

Music

The music is surprisingly good for its time. The game used the Yamaha 2151 chip, which provided a nice FM synthesis soundtrack. Junko Ozawa wrote the great tunes to this game.
