Description of Cabal

Cabal is a fun early commando shooter that doesn't stand the test of time very well, although it was well ahead of its time in terms of well-animated enemies and the sheer variety of them.

The goal is straightforward: penetrate the terrorists' stronghold and shoot everything in sight. There are 5 progressively harder levels that will take you from the beach, to inside the stronghold and into the scorching desert. Enemies range from terrorists, to tanks, choppers, and the final "war machine" that will take a lot of reflexes and determination to defeat. As a shoot-everything-that-moves (and even those that don't, such as warehouses), Cabal is quite entertaining.

It doesn't have the same staying power as, say, Metal Gear due to simplistic gameplay, but the endless streams of enemies and attractive 3D third-person view should keep any shooter fans happy for quite some time, especially joystick experts... the last 2 levels are almost impossible (for an action wimp like me, of course). Two players can also play in a co-operative mode to help blast enemies to oblivion. Fun!

What are the key controls? Can you dodge the enemy bullets with some key like in other similar games?
