Commando Kuwait was a game released during the time of the problems in the Gulf, and was heavily inspired by Commando Libya which was quite controversial.
However, both Sami and Mikko lost interest in the game, and sadly Mikko was killed in a train accident in the same year. The game had a small preview release, and that was it. Some time later, Sami felt guilty about not finishing the game, and so spent more time developing the title… but again lost interest and the project halted.
Here are all the remains of the game, including a recent second version of the game with some extras not previously seen. Sami also sheds some more light on the game in a note which is on the D64 image in the download.
As a game, it is nothing too special, and just involves shooting loads of Commando sprites. It is sort of similiar to Blood and Blood 2, but without the gore.
Just how good the final game would have been, we will sadly never know. It could have been quite good, and maybe the animation demos are an indication of what might have been.
For now, check out the previews as we close the door on this one as soon as we open it…
