    NATO Commander is a strategy wargame developed by MicroProse Software and published by both MicroProse Software (US releases) and U.S. Gold (UK releases) for Apple II, Commodore 64, and Atari 8-Bit.


    As the game progresses, operational and political factors influence the outcome of the war. Players are given the ability to use either chemical warfare or nuclear weapons but these will have dire consequences on reputation and how other countries interact with the player. The end game involves either the player or the Soviet Union surrendering and a score is calculated depending on the forces remaining.
