Combined-arms operations

Beach Head was a critical hit when it was released in the 80s and it's easy to see why. Although the graphics are rudimentary (but ambitious for their day) it combines a wide range of different types of game play from ship navigation to shooting to driving into a single package. You'll need to steer your vessel to the island battle the enemy fleet there drive a tank during the assault and then take on the heavily defended enemy bunker to capture the island. The controls are simple -- mostly you're just steering a vehicle and occasionally shooting -- and the sound is minimalist.

A deserved classic

Beach Head's 80s graphics and sound obviously can't hold a candle to modern equivalents but the core gameplay is fun and challenging. If you're interested in the history of video games this ambitious title is definitely worth checking out.
