New Game: Papi Commando Coming to PC and Sega Genesis and Mega Drive

Show of hands, who remembers the classic Capcom arcade title, Commando?  Show of hands again, who is willing to admit they saw the movie of the same name starring a young Alyssa Milano and Arnold Schwarzenegger?  Okay, forget the second question, it has zero relevance to Papi Commando.  Fans of the arcade game, Commando, will see a lot of stuff they will probably like in this homebrew title from Allgamers forum member, Vetea.

Many options are being worked on for Papi Commando for Windows, which will eventually see the light of day in the Sega Genesis version.  These include introducing civilians, balancing resources such as ammunition and health packs and of course balancing the power of the enemies.  These types of games succeed or lose based on their enemy balancing.
