WTTW: Commandos In Spaaaaace


For today we have something a bit more in-depth and something some of you might regonize were you to think about it for a few moments. Like, say, a trio of bearded gents making their way through a number of puzzle-oriented levels with mild action elements? On Super Nintendo, maybe? Had a cameo in World of Warcraft? Which means it was made by Blizzard? Any bells ringing (or axes clanging?) OK, OK, so it’s called Galactic Commandos and, basically, it’s a clone of The Lost Vikings which, all things considered, is a fairly good thing of which to be a clone.1

1 It certainly beats being another Tetris clone or Mario clone or a sorta-clone like a Replicant in Blade Runner…though being able to kick everyone’s ass is a benefit that has to be strongly weighed against the four-year lifespan.

    Fun! But shouldn’t the big one just be able to destroy everything in sight without all that sneaking around?

      I don’t think it occurred to the developer to model him after you, unfortunately.
