Commando marches from the arcades to the NES in this home conversion from Capcom. Control a soldier named "Super Joe" in a mission to rescue hostages and eliminate members of an army controlled by the evil "Gunther Brothers." Armed with a few grenades and a machine gun offering unlimited ammo, Super Joe will advance through four outdoor stages, each divided into four sections.
The action takes place on a vertically scrolling battlefield as enemy troops appear on foot, in trenches, on motorcycles, behind mortars, and more. Super Joe can acquire temporary power-ups like super grenades and bulletproof vests to help survive the relentless onslaught. He can also take a reprieve from the action by finding secret underground shelters, whose entrances are revealed by tossing grenades or using binoculars. Find and rescue all prisoners to earn a surprise bonus. ~ Scott Alan Marriott, All Game Guide
