Bionic Commando for the Game Boy is a remake of the Bionic Commando (NES) game. It is the same style of platform shooter and features a slightly easier to work with bionic arm. You control Rad by swinging him over various obstacles, shooting at enemies, and infiltrating enemy territory. Since the game is a remake, the main goal is the same: you're trying to rescue Super Joe and save the world from the evil empire. All references to Nazism and World War II have been eliminated, and there is a more high tech theme to the game. Although the game is grayscale, the graphics are wonderful, and some of them are even better than the original, and a stronger anime motif is used. A few tunes are reused in the game as well, though the Game Boy sound chip doesn't quite match up the NES.

Music

A couple of the songs from the Game Boy remake are based on the original arcade game and the NES port, but most of the music is unique.

Ripping Game Boy music is a very arduous process that is beyond the scope of this site.
