Suburban Commando. Terrible film, terrible game. In fact, all I can remember about the film is a scene where Hulk Hogan picks up a kid's skateboard and throws it into space! I think I switched it off after that. The game is just as bad. You control a spaceship on level one, and then later on you control a very camp looking Hulk Hogan around a few levels collecting coins and jewels. It's all a bit of a clumsy and irritating affair. There were only four levels to get through... thank god.

The final level is complete!

The End.

HOW WAS IT COMPLETED?: Using an infinite lives cheat.

SO WHAT HAPPENS?: Once you find the exit on the final level, you are greeted with a black screen and a 'Game Over' message. Is that it !!!... No it isn't.. I pressed the fire button and to my surprise I got to see a picture of the Hulkster (which isn't too badly drawn) while a nice little victory tune played. A message is then displayed telling you of your success and the demise of your enemy, and that our hero must now return to patrol the galaxy. The game then ends.


  • Neil: Not bad really. Shame there was no animation - but I'm grateful there was something at the end of this damn awful game.

  • Vinny: I only every played the demo version of this game on a Commodore Format covertape. Pity it's so cack. The end actually compliments the game and they are what we learnt to expect from the later days of Commodore 64 budget releases - total cack. Anyway, where's MA-CHOE-MAYNE?

  • Andy Vaisey: Well to be honest, anything with Hulk Hogan on or in it sucks by default for me. Can't stand the guy. His wrestling ability is a bit like this game, technically inept, while the ending is a bit like his leg drop finisher, boring compared to others out there. Brother.

  • Brendan Phoenix: His daughter is pretty fit though! Standard C64 ending, better than some of the dross out there that we have all seen

FINAL SAY: Hulkamania just ran wild on me. It was a very boring experience. Give me Big Daddy or Giant Haystacks any day...

G.E. RATING: 3 / 10
