From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia:

   Total Carnage is multi-directional arcade shooter released by Midway in 1992. Ports were released for the Super NES in 1993 and Amiga CD32, Amiga, and MS-DOS in 1994. It shares many gameplay elements with Midway's previous title Smash TV, including two-player simultaneous play, and adds scrolling, large enemy vehicles, the ability to collect and place (using a dedicated button) bombs, and a much wider range of gameplay scenarios.
   An evil Middle Eastern dictator named General Akhboob closes off his country to the rest of the world following a war in 1999. Hundreds of reporters flocked to the zone in hopes of getting a real scoop. Unfortunately for them, one of the reporters discovers that there's more than baby milk being made at the 'Baby Milk Factory'.
   General Akhboob then captures the reporter, as well as all the remaining reporters in his country. It turns out that General Akhboob has been building an army of mutants and a stockpile of chemical weapons. He's also holding several American reporters and other civilians captive. It is up to the Doomsday Squad, composed of Captain Carnage (Player 1) and Major Mayhem(Player 2), to invade Akhboob's base, wipe out his forces, destroy the mutants, rescue all the hostages and capture Akhboob.
   Along the way, Captain Carnage and Major Mayhem fight various mutants and monsters, including a giant cyborg named Orcus; get captured by Ahkboob's soldiers and put through his super-charged electric chair; arrive at the 'Baby Milk Factory' and destroy his nuclear capabilities; and finally confront General Ahkboob himself. Ahkboob transforms into several forms. After his defeat, he attempts to escape by releasing a swarm of clones, but is captured and then executed.
   Like Smash TV, Total Carnage features top-down shooter gameplay where the left joystick moves the player and the right joystick shoots. The player can enter a password at the start of the game to warp the player to anywhere in the game. The player gets a temporary shield per bomb drop (in some cases, this might not happen). The weapons have been modified, at death, the user gets a rapid-fire gun instead of the normal gun, the rocket launcher now also shoots ball-bullets and is slower, the game also features two types of a Flamethrower, one that shoots regular fire, one that shoots blue fire at larger ranges. The Grenade Lobber is faster than its Smash TV counterpart, and it shoots blue grenades instead of yellow and grey ones.

Platform:

This ver­sion of Total Carnage was de­sig­ned for per­so­nal com­pu­ters with o­pe­ra­ting sys­tem MS-DOS (Mi­cro­soft Disk O­pe­ra­ting Sys­tem), which was o­pe­ra­ting sys­tem de­ve­lo­ped by Mi­cro­soft in 1981. It was the most wi­de­ly-used o­pe­ra­ting sys­tem in the first half of the 1990s. MS-DOS was sup­plied with most of the IBM com­pu­ters that pur­cha­sed a li­cen­se from Mi­cro­soft. Af­ter 1995, it was pu­s­hed out by a gra­phi­cal­ly mo­re ad­van­ced sys­tem - Win­dows and its de­ve­lop­ment was ce­a­sed in 2000. At the ti­me of its grea­test fa­me, se­ve­ral thou­sand ga­mes de­sig­ned spe­ci­fi­cal­ly for com­pu­ters with this sys­tem we­re cre­a­ted. To­day, its de­ve­lop­ment is no lon­ger con­ti­nue and for e­mu­la­tion the free DOSBox e­mu­la­tor is most of­ten used. Mo­re in­for­ma­ti­on about MS-DOS operating system can be found here.
