> WHO DARES WINS by Alligata Software

Completed Vinny Mainolfi and Stefan (Guerilla)

So I am sure you all know that Who Dares Wins was deemed to be too much of a Commando rip-off and so it was denied an actual release. Thankfully, Steve Evans just redesigned the levels and was able to release the game as Who Dare Wins 2 (ending also available on this site). So is the ending any different to the Mark 2 version...

Your man has completed the final mission...

...The End.

HOW WAS IT COMPLETED?: I just used a cracked/trainer version of the game and did a level skip until I get to the final one and just played through with infinite everything.

SO WHAT HAPPENS?: You just kill the final lot of baddies and then the final "CONGRATULATIONS" screen appears with flashing text (see above).


  • Vinny: The ending engine to this game is obviously identical to Who Dares Wins 2 - which is forgivable. The only real difference is the ending text. It's still a bloody good game to play though :-)
  • Stefan: At least they give an explanation why you have to start over. Can't these lousy soldiers secure an area properly?!? 2/10 from me...and that's already including a bonus point for the good explanation why the game starts over.
  • Gaz Spence: Interesting that Alligata got it out before the official Commando release - and far from appearing like a rush job, it actually plays very well. The ending is simple, shall we say.
  • Brendan Phoenix: Flashing writing makes my brain and eyes hurt!
  • Andrew Fisher: Great game, in some ways I prefer it to the "proper" Commando conversion (although that does have Rob Hubbard's excellent music...)

    A simple ending from much simpler times, when you could (almost) get away with cloning an arcade game.
  • Andy Vaisey: Dodgy graphics but a pleasantly enjoyable game. Cop-out ending though...

FINAL SAY: Very basic :(

G.E. RATING: 2 / 10
