xvidcap.sourceforge.net

Multiple regular-video formats. Simple and works.

An ex-commando's daughter is kidnapped in a ploy to have him help overthrow a foreign government, but this single father will instead fight to rescue her.

I really hope you like steel drums.

Well, it's got a sellout anime feeling to it. The graphics and sound are more cartoonish. A number of the annoyances of the first game have been hammered out, but there is a "toy" quality to the game which replaces the original gritty feeling of the original game.
