The Adventures of Captain Comic (or just Captain Comic) is a classic 1988 MS-DOS platform game which is known for being one of the first side-scrolling games made for the IBM PC. It was developed entirely by Michael Denio. The PC version of the game was distributed as shareware. Later a version for the NES was published by Color Dreams as an unlicensed title. An unofficial conversion for the SAM Coupé also exists[1]. It was also cloned as "Pioneer Xenia" in 1990 by a team of Ukrainian programmers[2].

Gameplay of Captain Comic

In the game, the player takes control of Captain Comic, who is on a mission to the planet Tambi to recover three treasures stolen from the planet Omsoc. Its author, Michael Denio, writes in the introduction to the game's manual:
The Adventures of Captain Comic started out as an experiment to test the viability of two theories, the first as to whether a real arcade type game can be done on a standard IBM PC with an EGA card, and secondly, given the first can be done, if it is possible to make any money doing it. Well, I've come to a conclusion on the second point, but I'll let you judge the first point for yourself.

Although neither the original, nor its sequel were commercial successes, Captain Comic is best-known for its historical significance to classic PC games.

The theme song for Captain Comic was traditionally a rendition of the United States Marine Corps Hymn. The song was changed in Version 5 (the final revision of the game, released in 1991).
