IGN - Bionic Commando comes to the 3DS VC as a port of a 1992 Game Boy game, which was itself a pseudo-port/remake of the NES Bionic Commando title from the late '80s.
You've probably heard of this series before -- it's the franchise that equips its heroes with extendable grappling hooks for arms and takes away the common platformer ability to jump. Yes, that's right -- you can't jump at all. So you instead have to strategically make use of the ceilings and walls around you as latch points -- sending out your bionic arm like Spider-Man shoots out his webs -- and swing yourself from place to place. 8/10
