Bruno R. Marcos (Cavenaut) is putting the finishing touches on Maximus Action Carnage, a freeware tribute to Capcom's 1985 run-and-gun arcade shooter Commando.

Maximus Action Carnage was built using Marcos' Arcade Game Studio, a Windows-based tool specifically designed for making '80s-style arcade shooters, platformers, and maze games. The result looks very solid, and the final product will feature a variety of power-ups and music composed by Jake "virt" Kaufman.

A release date has not been announced, but Marcos assures that the full version will be released "soon."
