- TRIVIA -


The first of Capcom's 'Jet-Pack Hero' shooters! Your hero is officially called "Captain Commando". :)


Section Z has a couple of bugs, sprites don't clip properly when scrolling on or off the left side of the screen or the top of the screen.


Every few sections (stages), the direction of the game's scrolling changes, from left-to-right, to bottom-to-top, to right-to-left, etc.


One section features a pinball machine in which you must avoid the multiple flying pinballs.


Alfa Records released a limited-edition soundtrack album for this game (Capcom Game Music - 28XA-94) on 25/08/1986.
