Hi, everyone

I am looking for an old DOS game I used to play when I was quite young (in the early 1990s), it looks like Ikari Warriers but with worse graphics. I've tried to do some quick searches in a few old game libs (MobyGames, dosgamesarchive, Abandonware Games) and didn't got it.

All that I could remember about it:

[Platform]: DOS
[time]: 80s or 90s
[Graphics style]: pixel with lots of dithering, not as color-rich as Ikari Warriors.
[Genre]: top-down action/shoot war game. Up-down scroll.
[Others]: In the game you control a soldier entering the enemy territory, and the view scrolls up as you progress from south to north. You can prone in trenches, use different weapons including guns and grenades, and there is some stealthy strategy involved. The enemy side has pill boxes that you need to bomb with explosives.

It is not: Ikari Warriors, Commando.

Anyone has any clue?
