Here's an original storyline, folks. The year is 2046 and the Industry of Intelligent Androids have created Dergon, a revolutionary device capable of human-like thoughts. The trouble with robots having human intelligence is they don't have a soul, so things soon started to go horribly wrong.

The only way to save mankind is to destroy the androids' planets. Explosives have been secretly planted over the past two years and now they need someone to set them off. That someone is you - the Last Commando.

Does anyone remember the old Defender games? You know, where the landscape scrolls both left and right and a sleek ship zaps lots of aliens into oblivion? This is an updated version of that idea, and it s quite a spitting one, too.

There are three planets to be destroyed, Zorak with eight explosives to be set, Alfard with six and Grisum’s ten. They play in a similar manner but have different backgrounds and aliens. These nasty little beings move around in set sequences so studying their actions is a good idea.

Icons placed randomly around landscapes help your mission: clocks for time, weapons to make you mega-hard, transport platforms and ionic batteries which start the detonation sequence for each planet.

The Last Commando is a slick version of a classic arcade game. Everything’s very colourful and there’s some great presentation graphics and backgrounds.

It may have all been seen before but not for a long time. This is a game style that's well worth forking out for, so why not try it with The Last Commando?

Watch out for the menacing mushroom clouds. They are fun guys (fungi) to be with.
