Great! Thanks for info.

I think that would be great idea to improve some weak amiga game and I know that is no trivial task.

You did great work there Tomcat, been playing it for a couple of days here.
Although I know just how much work this must have taken, I'm surprised many other games (on many other platforms... Amiga?) haven't been improved/modified to this extent before.

Commando 64 remake!

A remake of the C64 version of Commando was released not very long ago, and I think it's a great remake.

Basically what it does is bring it closer to the arcade version, and it includes the missing levels as well.

The one negative aspect about it that I can find is that the new music isn't very good, but luckily you can pick the original tune so it's not an issue.

Here is a video by Polaventris, showing the the game -
