Bionic Commando Description

Bionic Commando (トップシークレット, lit. "Top Secret") is an arcade game produced and released by Capcom in 1987. It was later released for several home computers (ported by Software Creations and published by Go!).

The game was followed the next year by a NES game with the same title (see Bionic Commando (NES)) that was, however, a sequel to this one.

The protagonist of the game is a commando called Super Joe. He is equipped with a bionic arm featuring a grappling gun, allowing him to pull himself forward or swing from the ceiling. The series is notable for being one of few instances of a platform game in which the player cannot jump. To cross gaps or climb ledges, the hero must use his bionic arm.

For Commodore 64 there are two distinct versions: a US version by Capcom, and a UK version by Software Creations. The UK Commodore 64 version seems to be the most well-received computer port, while the US version is considered poor.
