Bionic Commando (Nintendo Entertainment System)
Bionic Commando, known as Hitler no Fukkatsu: Top Secret (Japanese: ヒットラーの復活 トップシークレット, Hepburn: Hittorā no Fukkatsu: Toppu Shīkuretto?, lit. "The Resurrection of Hitler: Top Secret") in Japan, is an action-adventure video game released by Capcom for the Nintendo Entertainment System in 1988. It is loosely based on the 1987 arcade game Bionic Commando. In the game, the player has to explore each stage and obtain the necessary equipment to progress. The protagonist is Ladd Spencer, a commando equipped with a bionic arm featuring a grappling gun, allowing the protagonist to pull himself forward or swing from the ceiling. As such, the series is one of few instances of a platform game in which the player cannot jump. To cross gaps or climb ledges, the hero must use his bionic arm.
