General Chaos Description

General Chaos is a 1994 video game developed by Game Refuge Inc. and published by Electronic Arts for the Sega Genesis. General Chaos is a satircal arcade/strategy game.

The game is a quick and dirty battle (or a longer campaign mode that is a series of battles fought over a dynamic strategic map) between two generals, "General Chaos" and "General Havoc".

Each player has to pick one of 4 teams, 3 of which have 5 soldiers (with differing selections weapons), while one has 2 "commandos" and uses a different control system giving greater control.

The player views the action from an isometric perspective, watching cartoony soldiers duke it out on the battlefield. The game features a balance between action and strategy. For instance, whenever two soldiers on opposite sides get close enough, close combat will ensue. The soldiers can punch, kick, or block the attack. If one of the player's men loses all his health points, he will fall down on the ground. To help the fallen soldier, the player must move the cursor, or another solider in the case of the commandos, close to the injured solider and call out for a medic to revive him. However, there is a limit on the amount of times that a medic may be called. There are also many items that yield points on the battlefield to pick up.

With a multiplayer adaptor (or appropriate settings in the emulator), up to four people can play simultaneously against the computer in campaign mode where each battle is more difficult than the last. The player can also fight other human players without co-operation. Another feature of the game is the tutorial mode. Called “boot camp”, this mode explains all the basics of gameplay and user interface in a clear-cut manner.

The director of Hogan's Heroes TV series filed a lawsuit in 1994 based on some of the quotations used in the game. "HOGAN!!!", Col. Klink's infamous line, was used when a soldier was flame broiled on the battlefield. The suit flopped a few months later and EA recovered the blow.
