2021/12: Bionic Commando: Elite Forces (GBC) - Dacicus
« on: November 30, 2021, 09:53:12 pm »

For this month's "Maps Of The Month" featurette, I wish to draw your attention to Dacicus's Bionic Commando: Elite Forces (GBC) maps.

A classic hero returns!  Able to grab things from a distance and swing from ceilings or tall structures to get around, does he have what it takes to take on a threat from another world?  Luckily, this hero isn't alone anymore, and is part of a team all clad in red and blue and with the same abilities to take on the baddies.

No, I'm not talking about Spider-Man, but rather, Capcom's Bionic Commando.  This time around, this is developed by Nintendo Software Technology and published by Nintendo themselves, and we find the Elite Forces fighting the Avars, an army which has been terrorizing the nation of Karinia.  The Avars' leader, Arturus, seeks to uncover something called the Albatross, which will bestow upon him great power, and so you, as an elite Commando, must put a stop to him.

In this relatively lengthy Game Boy Color adventure, you will venture through 18 main areas.  Areas 6 and 9 are different, depending on if you are using the male or female Commando.  Using gradients, some areas appear to have a blend of colours to them, which look neat, especially on actual Game Boy Color hardware.  Dacicus has captured this colourful adventure for all of us to appreciate, and to avoid getting lost.  We can also marvel at Nintendo's take on a Capcom franchise.

So to recognize the effort put into mapping this elite Game Boy Color game, Dacicus's Bionic Commando: Elite Forces (GBC) maps will be known as's Maps Of The Month for December 2021.
