Video Game: Commando

Commando (Senjō no Ōkami) is a top-down run-and-gun game released by Capcom in 1985. Originally an arcade game, it was later ported to a wide range of game consoles, including the Atari 2600, Nintendo Entertainment System, Amiga, Commodore 64, Intellivision, and ZX Spectrum. In this game, you control a soldier (nameless in the original version, but called "Super Joe" in some international versions) who is dropped off in a jungle and has to shoot and bomb his way through enemy territory.

It had two sequels: Mercs (aka Senjō no Ōkami 2), released in 1989, and Wolf of the Battlefield: Commando 3, released in 2008. Both sequels featured cooperative play for up to three players.

Not to be confused with Ōkami or the similarly-named flash game series.
