Boot Camp is a slight twist on the sports game genre. The player is in a military boot camp, and needs to pass a variety of training exercises so that they can eventually complete important missions. Some of the events they'll compete in are the obstacle course, firing ranges, iron man race, arm wrestling, and a fight with their instructor. Gameplay is similar to that of the Epyx Games series, with many unique events that must be completed to move on. Two players can play simultaneously, or one player against the computer.
One of the more original sports games I've seen, Konami's Boot Camp is, as the name implies, a game about life in the military camp. The goal in each level is simple: get to the end of the obstacle course before the computer-controlled soldier. Instead of hurdles, you will jump over makeshift mounds; you will also climb walls, criss-cross overhead bars, and more. Gameplay is basically track & field meets gymnastics, and after the novelty wears off, there is little behind the different graphics and scenery that makes Boot Camp different from, say, Microsoft's Decathlon in basic gameplay. Still, the attractive split-screen perspective, excellent controls, and surprises on every level keep the game from becoming boring. Boot Camp is a fun an innovative sports game-- just don't expect it to be the next California Games.
