Team Apache is an attack helicopter flight simulator developed by Simis and published by Mindscape Group. The game emphasizes on commanding a group of six AH-64 Apache crews of the US Army in battles against the Communist FARC insurgents in Colombia and the Russian military in Latvia.
|Release||June 24, 1998|
|Mode(s)||Single player, multiplayer|
Team Apache was initially developed by Simis under Eidos Interactive. When Simis' two lead developers, Jonathan Newth and Ian Baverstock bought the company back from Eidos, they became an independent development team once more and Mindscape purchased the publishing rights of the game.
Team Apache focuses more on the gameplay aspects of command, tactics and battlefield realism, rather than the realism of flight and weapons systems modelling. The player manages the unit's morale, supply and maintenance, and the tactical planning that takes place before the mission. The geopolitical causes of Team Apache's wars are relayed in both the game's manual and the "daily" newspaper, with a focus on being realistic. Detailed military-style SITREPs create a picture of the tactical situation, and ground forces can be seen in the game fighting each other throughout the theatre using fairly realistic deployments and movements.
Team Apache contains various modes of play, including a multiplayer mode and a mission building application.
In Team Apache, the player commands six AH-64 Apache crews of the US Army in battles against the Communist FARC insurgents in Colombia and the Russian military in Latvia. The storyline is developed through FMV sequences, in-mission briefings and newspaper articles.
In 1998, the Fuerzas Armadas Revolucionarias de Colombia–Ejército del Pueblo or FARC-EP (Spanish for "Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia–People's Army") has staged a large-scale guerrilla offensive against the government of Colombia. In its wake comes a wave of kidnappings and assassinations of high-ranking officials and their families. The corrupt and inefficient military of Colombia and police cannot hold their own against the insurgents, and need help from the United States. The United States needs to safeguard Colombia's oil industry and eliminate FARC's illegal cocaine industry.
