8-Bit Commando is a run and gun platformer with fast-paced action, a rocking soundtrack (from the chiptune artist Ozzed), local multiplayer and explosions. The graphics will take you back to the classic age of gaming and the gameplay is bound to challenge even the most seasoned vets.
Demo versions of 8-Bit Commando have been around since 2010. It wasn't until 2014 that the game made it onto Steam (after remaining on Greenlight for two years). In March of 2016, 8-Bit Commando was completely redesigned in the "Revamped" update. An additional mission was released as a Steam update in July, 2017.
- 7 levels of intense action
- Local coop and versus mode
- Beautiful retro graphics
- Online hiscore
