[success_box title=”This giveaway is closed. Congratulations to our winner!”]Congratulations to Sneaky Bastards reader Pattom, who has won himself a copy of Commandos from GOG.com with his entry, The Partisan:

“A Jewish Lithuanian bent on revenge, the Partisan’s village was burned to ash by the blitzkrieg. She can create camouflage for herself, making her invisible to guards, but it is hastily made, falling apart after a minute, and she only has the necessary materials to use it three times per mission. Her only weapon at the start of each mission is a combat knife, but she can steal the weapons dropped by dead guards. She is able to drag bodies away from where they fell.”[/success_box]

Happened to have read our stealth review of Pyro Studios’ classic stealth strategy game Commandos, and fancied a try at taking down Nazi Germany? We’re giving one Sneaky Bastard the chance to do just that. Simply complete the following task, and a copy of Commandos from GOG.com could be yours!

Note that this is the Commandos Ammo Pack, so it’s actually two games in one – the original Commandos: Behind Enemy Lines, and its stand-alone expansion pack, Commandos: Beyond the Call of Duty!

To win, simply complete the following task:

Invent a new type of Commando!

Your entry must include a name for your new Commando, as well as a description of at least one unique ability.

The winner will be the entry whose Commando would sound most useful fighting on the battlefield alongside the Green Beret, Marine, Driver et al!

Note that Commandos 2 introduced the Thief and the Seductress. We will accept entries similar to those archetypes as long as the entry describes their function as being significantly different to that of the Commandos 2 characters.

This heavily fortified abode is the residence of your target: Helmut “The Butcher” Schleper. Unfortunately, the Sniper doesn’t have line of sight into the compound where the General takes his morning stroll. Time to find another way in...

  1. The Partisan. A Jewish Lithuanian bent on revenge, the Partisan\’s village was burned to ash by the blitzkrieg. She can create camouflage for herself, making her invisible to guards, but it is hastily made, falling apart after a minute, and she only has the necessary materials to use it three times per mission. Her only weapon at the start of each mission is a combat knife, but she can steal the weapons dropped by dead guards. She is able to drag bodies away from where they fell.

  2. The Chemist. As a master in chemistry, he is a lousy fighter. You have acids in his inventory. In buildings, he uses these strong acids to burn holes in the ground, or in walls, to create alternative routes. His acids also can destroy locks on doors. Outside buildings, he can lay tripwires that he combines with narcotic gas and he can also lay fires to distract enemies from a distance.

  3. The Machinist. The machinist is capable of fashioning additional resources for the other classes from salvaged materials found within a level. He could, for example, create an additional sniper bullet if the right resources were available or craft an additional timebomb if resources are available. The main drawback to this ability is the machinist must be handed the materials or reach the location they reside to craft an item and after crafting the item the machinist himself must reach the soldier who can use it. His only weapon is a screw driver which will dispatch enemies at melee range much like the combat knife but is much louder and the machinist cannot carry bodies.

  4. The Pyrotechnic. used more for distraction than actual fighting, Can use is talent to lure away many soldiers by making it look like there is an fight going on when in truth its nothing but fire and gunpowder, Has Molotov Cocktails for sticky situations and can make thermite to burn through steel to make other entries possible or even take out boats and vehicles.

  5. The Doctor. Once a Jewish Hungarian prisoner of Auschwitz, this professional practitioner escaped the camp after becoming one of many Mengele\’s assistants and being granted free passage between the different areas of the krauts\’ slaughterhouse. He swore revenge against the Nazis, having these gassed his wife and daughters at arrival. He speaks fluent German and can easily pass for a Nazi doctor once he dresses on the clothes of one of the German physicians. He can heal his mates, put anyone to sleep with a dose of chloroform or poison both foods and people through injections. He counts with an easily concealable FP-45 Liberator and a few rounds that he can use in emergency situations or simply when he runs out of more silent methods.
