Ikari Warriors is one of the many rambo-like wargames that graced the computer screens in the 80's. This game is known to be the follow up to the legendary "Commando" game. The latter one has always been considered the first vertical scroller "one-man-against-an-army" game and it inspired an entire genre. "Commando" was released in 1985 by Capcom for the arcade market, Ikari Warriors followed only one year later in 1986. It was then converted to almost any home entertainment system. In 1987 the ST version saw the light of day. Ikari Warriors introduced something new. It was now possible for another player to join the war fair!
