North American NES box art.

Guerrilla War, known in Japan as ゲバラ, Gebara, Guevara is a run-and-gun developed and developed by SNK for the arcade in 1987, and was subsequently ported to the NES, and home computers, Amstrad CPC, Commodore 64, and ZX Spectrum. In the game, you play as either Ernesto "Che" Guevara or Fidel Castro in their attempt to invade Cuba to overthrow dictator, Fulgencio Batista. The play style is similar to Commando, but drastically better.

I first saw this game in the arcade room of the Lakeland Arena in the late 1980s. My parents never gave me quarters, so I didn't play the game, but I enjoyed watching other people play it, and I remember my older brother once played it, but he didn't get very far. Around 1990, I played the game for the first time on the NES with my cousin who was borrowing it from a friend. Since the game gives you unlimited continues, we beat the game at that point.

Status

I do not own the game, but I have beaten both the American and Japanese versions on the NES.
