    Default Error in review of "Commando" for the Atari 7800

    This is primarily for the person who did their review of "Commando" for the Atari 7800. I need to know if you used an emulator to play the game. The reason is that the actual cartridge used the POKEY chip (from the Atari5200 and the 8-bit computers) which was responsible for the music (the same with Ballblazer). I hope this helps. If you need to ask a couple questions feel free to reply.

    Not me, but this is a port of the Capcom coin-op, right? I'll take any information on that you've got

    It is based on the arcade (I think it may even have the same locations for the POW dungeons). The only reason I can figure as to why you didn't get the music in the game during the review was possibly due to use o fan emulator and a badly-dumped rom of the game (which didn't have the POKEY chip information in the file). The real cartridge should definitely have a POKEY installed.
