BackgroundIt’s a widely held belief (it’s on Wikipedia, so it MUST be true) that the British Commandos were disbanded at the end of the second world war leaving just the Royal Marine 3 Commando Brigade. The truth is, they were moved to a top secret military base in the heart of Cheshire, given a new name and a new objective. Under the command of Major Jack Garrett, the Super Elite Commando Force Seven Unit were tasked with protecting our planet from the continual threat of alien invasion.
For over 75 years, the Super Elite Commando Force Seven Unit have been fighting the good fight and protecting the Earth from total destruction. However, a fierce battle over the Alaskan wastelands would see the Super Elite Commando Force Seven Unit almost wiped-out; with Major Jack Garrett the sole survivor.
Realising that Major Garrett is still alive, the aliens muster all of their remaining forces for a final assault on Earth. You are Major Jack Garrett, you are the last commando and you are humanity’s only hope.
If you think one man against an entire alien civilisation are unfair odds, you don’t know Jack!
Game PlayCommando Jack combines the tactical with the frenetic as the worlds of the Tower Defence and First-Person Shooter genres come together in this highly addictive game for iOS devices.
The alien threat is targeting tourist hotspots around the globe; deploy your defences, upgrade your arsenal and take control of the battle before the alien menace takes over. Commando Jack's arsenal comprises of four defence turrets, one remote control grenade turret, and three guns which can all be upgraded three times each. Add to this a nuclear bomb and a UAV which provides an ariel view like a gunship, and you've got 26 different items to defend the planet. Also, the addition of three perks to use and swap mid-battle allow increasing turret or weapon power or boosting build points earned, adding another layer of strategy. The four difficulty modes dramatically alter the battlefield and provide different strategic challenges.
The nine alien types bring the game alive, with most enemies in the game reacting and changing to the way you play. For instance, the heavy 'Kamikaze alien' walks towards Commando Jack cradling a belt of grenades, but once its nearly dead, enraged, it runs faster towards Jack, with its arms flailing in the air, leaving its grenades open to gunfire!
