Only the GI Joe Team can stop a madman in OPERATION: TERROR TRAP.
You are in the Pit, the secret underground headquarters of the GI Joe Team. Hawk, your leader, tells you that a despot who calls himself The One has defeated the armed forces of an East African nation and taken over the country! The Joe Team believes The One - who is rumored to have a secret hideout in New York City - is backed by Cobra!
Your code name is Dog Ear because of your experience in battling street toughs. Now you will join Lady Jaye, Duke, Gung Ho, Dusty, and Quick Kick on a plane bound for Africa. Your mission: Infiltrate the government and put an end to The One's reign.
The violent storm that engulfs your plan is only the beginning. This is an incredibly dangerous mission! You must make split-second decisions at every turn. Do your best to succeed, Dog Ear, as you FIND YOUR FATE.
