Operation: Desert Storm is a top-down tank shooter for the Macintosh. It was the first commercial game released by Bungie[2] and the first game since their official incorporation, following the freeware title Gnop! published by Bungie co-founder Alex Seropian under the Bungie name prior to incorporation. It only sold about 2,500 copies[3] and was based on Operation Desert Storm, a conflict in the Middle East that was going on at the time.

The game featured twenty levels, culminating in the city of Baghdad with the final enemy being a giant Saddam Hussein head. It also came with a glossary of military terms and trivia which was needed in order to bypass the copy-protection in the game, and authentic maps of the Kuwaiti Theater of Operations.
