Commando - December 3, 2000 by D@Z
Game:CommandoCompany:Capcom
Type:ShooterPlayers:1/2

I first played this game on my Spectrum 128k+ back in the 80`s and it was not till the late 80`s before I played it in the arcades.The graphics and sound were obviously better on the arcade version but the basic gameplay was the same,you start by being dropped off behind enemy lines by your helicoper crew and then your mission begins.
As you make your way up the screen the enemies see you and start to attack.The controls are a little difficult at first as you can only shoot and move up,down,left,right and diagonally and you may find it hard to get to grips with (this may just be me ;-),but after a little practice you get used to it.You have unlimited bullets and start of with 6 grenades which can only be trown forwards but there are more grenades to pick up.The enemy at the start only shoot bullets and grenades,as you work your way further into enemy terratory the weapons get a bit bigger,like missiles for example.There are hostages out there to rescue so keep your eyes open,as you get a nice points bonus if you free them.At the end of the stage you will come across a gate to the enemies compound and when that opens prepare to shoot and use them grenades as they will pour out of there.A little cheat:Move your commando to the bottom of the screen when you get to the gate and shoot down,the shots you fire will end up coming out of the top of the screen and killing the soldiers,thats for all you cheater out there.There is not much to this game and I know alot more better games but as it was one of my first speccy games I will always remember it.
The emulation of it is good and the game is good and has a cool hi-score name entering screen.Get your boots polished and your kit on and prepare to be a hero,as you go into battle,on your own as you become the ultimate Commando.
