Hard mode


Greetings, Commandos! Are you ready for the ultimate retro gaming experience? We're talking classic run-and-gun action without tutorials, health-bars and no hand holding.


Think you can handle the one-hit deaths and brutal timer counting down the seconds before nuclear disaster...

Hard mode unlocks once you complete the game and gives you exclusive access to a new set of leaderboards.


Kick off the new year like it's 1987! Simply turn up the in-game video filters and you'll feel as if you are playing on an authentic CRT television.

Happy new year from 2DEngine!
