What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“KickAss Commandos already has a bunch of really fun levels and we want to give fans a chance to play the game now! This in turn gives us a chance to improve the game based upon player feedback as we build out new campaigns, mission packs, features, and characters.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We want to ensure the best experience possible at full launch, so we want to take our time during Early Access to incorporate player feedback, add tons of content, and adjust/expand features so the game is the best it can be. We anticipate a full release in 2016.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“KickAss Commandos will continue to grow and evolve throughout development, and features will be refined and adjusted based on player feedback. Players can look forward to tons of exciting new content and lots of polish.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The first Early Access version contains Mission Pack #1 which contains 18 levels challenging levels with dozens of different enemies to fight, commandos to rescue and things to blow up!”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“We plan to gradually raise the price as we ship new content and features.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“The community is encouraged to post and share feedback with us. We want to know what you like, what you don’t like, and what you’d like to see in future builds!”

About This Game


Lock and Load! It's time to KickAss and... Well, it's just time to KickAss. Grab your machinegun, flamethrower, rocket launcher and grenades. Assault the enemy base and free commandos to join your team while you destroy everything you see. Make your way through enemy bunkers to rescue your comrades, and kill everyone else you encounter!


  • KickAss Action
  • Weather Forecast: Bullet Storm with Hail of Grenades
  • Explosions. Big, Big Explosions.
  • Did we mention the Explosions?
  • Grenades, Flamethrowers, Machineguns, Rocket Launchers





Colonel Stone is the leader of the KickAss Commandos. He is tough as nails and takes no crap from anyone. If you want to be a KickAss Commando under his command, you personally owe him 100 pairs of boots taken from the bodies of 100 dead enemies!



Lex Lightning - Men want to be him, and women want to be with him. The magic of his mustache simply drives the women crazy, and his prowess on the battlefield makes his enemies shrink like your balls in a winter speedo.



Sgt. Mohawk is by far the strongest commando. He once pulled a broken down tank to the top of the hill to use it as his personal shoulder-mounted rocket launcher.



Corporal Flame is also known as the “hottest” Commando, but that’s not because of his looks. He’s used his flamethrower to torch enemies across the globe.



Corporal Muscles is so proud of his chiseled physique that he never wears a shirt, not even on missions in the arctic.



Lieutenant Newbie is the newest officer to join the Commandos. Rumor has it the only way he made it to the Commandos is because his family is connected to the highest levels of the government. He has a lot to prove if he wants to be accepted by the other Commandos.



Delta Ops - If we told you anything about these super secretive, elite forces, we’d have to kill you. So we’ll leave it at that.



Nameless Privates - Don’t bother to get to know them, because they probably won’t last long. Great for clearing minefields, going around dangerous corners, or just about any place bullets might fly.






General Irons is the unquestioned, totalitarian leader of the elite Tiger Division. During battle, he can usually be found sitting up high in a tower or on a wall directing his legion of soldiers and firing rockets into oncoming foes. He has made a blood oath to one day personally kill Colonel Stone with his bare hands!



Major Schwarz was totally incompetent and dropped every weapon he ever held, so they promoted him up the chain of command and gave him a crate of grenades. He’s not accurate, but he’s got butterfingers and grenades in volume.



Before joining the most evil enemy organization on the planet, the Commandant was know as the world’s most deadly assassin. General Irons personally recruited him to head up the Division’s secret operations battalion.



Red Devils usually work in squads of 5 or more basterds. They all wield powerful shotguns to spray waves of deadly bullets at their foes.



Rumor has it the Fire Strikers snort lines of cayenne pepper before charging into battle with flamethrowers, setting fire to everything in their path. Entire cities have been burned to the ground by these faceless, ruthless killers.



Killer Snipers are deadly for miles away. The combination of their next-gen, high powered rifles, along with their genetically modified “eagle eyes” makes them one of the world’s most accurate and efficient killers. Use cover such as trees, trucks, or even nameless privates to get close enough to take them out.



Troopers are plentiful and disposable. These guys are a dime a dozen. Nobody wants to be killed by the standard enemy lackeys, so if you fall to them in battle make sure you eat one of your own grenades so nobody knows!



The Rocket Brothers are the most feared tandem of killers the world has ever seen. These brothers are giants among men and carry rocket launchers that fire 5 rockets at a time. If someone feels the need to have a rocket launcher that big, does it mean they're trying to compensate for something else being too small?



Inside every enemy Tank is a tiny little baddie who wasn’t brave enough to fight like a man, and that just won’t do. It’s your job to pry them open like canned beans and put the smack down.

Game is pretty fun, a little repetitive and lacks the style of a Hotline Miami to make it stand out. For a dollar it's probably worth it.

Reminds me a little bit of Cannon Fodder.. only quicker, more action packed, more modern, no need to worry about recruits and put simply, a lot more fun.

I got it for $0.95 USD on sale. Since I've already been playing it for over an hour, I've already got my money's worth. Not sure I'd recommend it at $5.99 as half of the levels aren't unlocked yet due to being in Early Access, and there's no Steam Achievements or Trading Cards so far... but probably that price will be reasonable when the game development is finished. Played on Debian GNU/Linux x86_64.

As of right now, time on record 5 mins (the absolute mimimum required by Steam to write a review! This includes changing settings, navigating the UI and completing the first 2 mission. And this is what I noticed:

Pros:
  • Got more hair on my chest
  • My voice has gotten deeper
  • My biceps have grown 3 inches
  • My wife says I have become a better lover

Cons:
  • I want extra levels NOW!!!

GREAT game! Whether you're looking to play for just a few minutes or sit down to wreck a whole campaign the game keeps the same intensity the entire time you play. The character unlocks coupled with character upgrades make replaying much more enjoyable as it has direction. Awesome game.

This game is very clearly EA, it's a good concept, and it is fun. but there ARE some problems, Some animations just default to "Sliding" around at random, many AI teammates just "Run" backwards into eternity, so if you don't pick em up, they're gone, and oh my frigging GOD if I get killed during a cutscene again I'm gonna lose it, because yes, oh yes friends THEY CAN SHOOT YOU....even if you can't move. Plus some of the levels are Waaaaay to hard, either due to poor design (i.e. Gators just Spearheading you for an insta kill, and you being unable to avoid them due to the terrain, or because they just "appeared", though that may be a graphical error...). and general buckshot it damn near un-killable without grenades.

However the game has MASSIVE potential, local/internet co-op and workshop support (Levels, Chars, Weps...Total conversions maybe, mission editing and scripting) would make it a pure gem, and some fine tuning of weapons and terrain would be a godsend. This game is like Ikari Warriors on the NES (But this game controls so much better), the controls are solid, and the current string of things is appropriate for a new game like this, it's worth the $10, I waited 'till the sale ended to pay for the game.

Is it worth $10 in it's current state? Yes
Is it perfect? Hell no
Remember Ikari Warriors? No? Well play this anyway
Can it be made better? Absolutely
Will it? Most likely as the issues are just a set of minor ones that compound it to 1 big one.
It's a fun shmup remniscent of the NES era long past, I'm glad I bought this game, and I'm glad the devs are working on it!

And for the love of ANYTHING dear to you Play the Demo, it's free, that way if you don't like the game...don't ♥♥♥♥♥ about it, however if you want to be part of something interesting, and blowing things to pieces is your thing, BUY IT!...oh yeah, and the organs of your enemies? They slide around and blood trails everywhere...even better!

An Action-Packed Top-Down Twin-Stick Arcade Shooter
https://youtu.be/8XSw3xKSwbM
+ Extreme amounts of explosions, bullets, gore, and destructible objects
+ A unique mechanic where you get to control multiple units together with ease!
+ A variety of levels that change-up the gameplay
+ Very action oriented, one stage you kill a bunch of crocadiles with a knife!
+ A great deal of fun with a unrelenting level of carnage
+ Some levels are pretty challenging
+ Multiple difficulty levels adds to replayability
+ Visually appealing, some very nice work

This game is in Early Access, so don't take these negatives too seriously
- When you pickup a new weapon you lose the old, sometimes a bunch of weapons will be on the floor and the one you wanted will get deleted because you picked up another.
- Your allies can't pick up weapons which is a shame because you tend to find more weapons than you can use alone
