Commando might be coming to the Atari XL/XE with enhanced VBXE capabilities

Here's some interesting news if you have an Atari XL/XE with VBXE capabilities, as Saberman contacted us over the weekend to let us know that Shanti77 has released an early work in progress demo of the hopefully upcoming C64 to Atari XL/XE VBXE conversion of Commando. As in the words of Shanti77 "How does the game conversion from C64 to Atari using VBXE look like, the author has little knowledge of the C64 architecture, but is learning ;) When I found the described source code for this game on C64, I thought it would be a pity not to use it".

While I prefer the Arcade conversion of the C64 release by Nostalgia, this development which is for the Atari XL/XE VBXE doesn't just allow the opportunity to extend the number of colours on the screen, but it also provides extra sprites and comes with very smooth scrolling. Be aware however we are not sure if it will be developed into a fully fledged release, it has no sound and there's only a playable test version available below.
