Is It Any Good?

As a faithful recreation of an '80s arcade game, this shooter reminds us why we went broke, 25 cents at a time, when we were kids. In Wolf of the Battlefield: Commando MOBILE, you have to help Super Joe shoot and grenade his way out of the jungle, mowing down everyone in his path. By sliding your finger across the screen, Joe will aim his machine gun or toss his grenades wherever you command him to. Just don't lift your finger up, because this tends to confuse Joe. But while this is a good adaptation of the classic 1985 arcade game, this app does let you change a couple of things. For instance, rather than running headlong into any fight, you can instead turn off the "Auto Move" and decide when Joe will advance or retreat. You can even opt to turn off the "Auto Fire." Unfortunately, not all the changes are good. While the game has a supposedly easier "Casual Mode," it's actually not that easy. This also doesn't have volume controls, so you can't turn the music down or off. Still, if you're hoping to recreate the classic arcade experience and don't have access to a time machine, Wolf of the Battlefield: Commando MOBILE will bring the arcade experience to you.
