Gulf War II is a shoot 'em up game made for Arcade machines, developed by Comad and released in 1991.
The game sets around in the real Gulf War, which happened into 1990-1991. The players fights against Iraq armed forces in 10 stages full of action, but starting from the stage 11, the game loops back from stage 1, but on harder difficulties.
The game is a very extensive hack of Twin Cobra, a shoot 'em up developed by Toaplan and released by Taito in 1987 (although Toaplan wasn't credited in-game). Is the spiritual sequel of Tiger-Heli. In the original game, the player controls a helicopter instead of a jet plane, and the music is more audible in comparision to Gulf War II, where the FM channels and the FM drums are almost unsync.
Incredibly enough, Comad released Gulf War II as promotion of the real Gulf War, because South Korea was one of the various countries that supported USA against the Iraq armed forces. And Comad's was localized his office somewhere in South Korea.
