Classic Commando Video Game - Game Play
In Commando the player takes control of a soldier named Super Joe, who starts by being dropped off in a jungle by a helicopter, and has to fight his way out singlehandedly, fending off a massive assault of enemy soldiers. Super Joe is armed with a sub-machine gun (which has unlimited ammunition) as well as a limited supply of hand grenades. While Joe can fire his gun in any of the eight directions that he faces, his grenades can only be thrown vertically towards the top of the screen, irrespective of the direction Joe is facing. Unlike his SMG bullets, grenades can be thrown to clear obstacles, and explosions from well placed grenades can kill several enemies at once. At the end of each level in Commando, the screen stops, and the player must fight several soldiers streaming from a gate or fortress. They are ordered out by a cowardly officer, who immediately runs away, although shooting him in the back awards the player bonus points. Along the way, one can attempt to free prisoners of war as they are transported across the screen by the enemy. In the NES version of Commando, there is a more powerful machine gun upgrade, as well as glasses to let the player view all the hidden bunkers and an unlimited grenade upgrade (the player will lose these upgrades after losing a life).
What is a Commando Soldier
Commando is a soldier or operative of an elite light infantry or special operations force often specializing in amphibious landings, parachuting or abseiling. Originally "a commando" was a type of combat unit, as opposed to an individual in that unit. Some nations like the US don't really use it to describe their forces, while other nations like the UK and Australia use it describe a particular unit with specific duties. In other languages, commando and kommando denote a command, including the sense of a military or an elite special operations unit. In the militaries and governments of most countries, commandos are distinctive in that they specialize in assault on unconventional high-value targets. In English, occasionally to distinguish between an individual commando and the unit Commando, the unit is capitalized. We also want to point out that commando can also mean something complete different if we use the term, 'going commando', which means someone who wears no underwear. I guess they say it's nice and breezy that way. :)
