Game Review

Commando is a 2D action shooter arcade created by Capcom in 1985. It was ported first to the BBC Micro and ZX Spectrum. After its release, it was ported to multiple platforms, including Commodore 64, Apple II, Atari ST, MSX, and many others. The Amiga version presented here was published in 1989.

This old-school run-n’-gun is all about nonstop action from start to finish. You play as a nameless soldier who is dropped off in enemy territory on what I am assuming is a directive to kill everyone. As you shoot your way through the levels, you will also have opportunities to save a couple of POWs by taking out their captors. Not every enemy is in plain sight, so you will have to search them out before you can pump them full of lead. It is possible to find an upgrade that will allow you to see all hidden bunkers. You will also use grenades to destroy obstacles and clusters of enemies and can find an upgrade to make them unlimited. Commando is classic arcade shoot-em-up gameplay and is a great casual playing game.
