The Commando series is a Metal Slug-style run and gun Flash game by Miniclip. The game takes place during World War II. The player can choose between two different characters, a male or a female, both nameless. Three games on the series have been released so far, sharing many counterparts to Metal Slug.
Comparison with Metal Slug
Commando has a weapon change system like that of Metal Slug 6 and 7 / XX.The graphic style is also very similar. It also features a bonus system like Metal Slug 4. Also, the bosses in Commando borrow some design elements from the Metal Slug bosses.
It differs from the Metal Slug series by introducing a health bar, as well as letting the player choose weapons before playing (in the previous game; however, weapons are only equipped as each level is played).
These games take place during World War II. The first game is set in Great Britain, and the main enemy is Nazi Germany. Commando 2 is set in Asia, featuring the Imperial Japanese Army as enemies. Many Rebel Army symbols appear in the game as well, despite in fact that the main enemy in this series is the Axis powers on World War II.
There are 36 weapons in the game—10 are available by default, while the rest (bows, machine guns, explosives, etc.) are unlocked by completing missions—which can be equipped on an inventory with six slots. Two of these weapons (a knife and a pistol) are the default weapons, and cannot be removed. Here is a list:
