Contra (NES) description

In the year 2631, a small meteorite has fallen into the Galuga archipelago, located 20km northeast off the coast of New Zealand. Two years later, a terrorist group known as Red Falcon has seized the island in preparation for an alien invasion. The earth's marines sent two members of their elite Contra unit, Bill Rizer and Lance Bean, to neutralize the terrorists.

Contra (NES) gameplay

Contra employs a variety of playing perspectives, which include a standard side view. A pseudo-3D view and a fixed screen format. Up to two people can play simultaneously, with one player as Bill, and the other player as Lance.

The player's default weapon is a rifle with unlimited ammunition that can be upgraded into one of four other guns. These can be obtained by destroying the pill box sensors and flying item capsules containing them. Or by defeating the red-clad guards in the enemy bases. They consist of a machine gun, a laser gun that shoots a powerful beam. A fireball gun that shoots its rounds in a corkscrew pattern, and a spread gun that sprays bullets in five directions.

The first stage is a side-scrolling level. The player is dropped into the jungle. He must fend off the enemy's initial line of defense until reaching the entrance of the first base and destroying the large sensor. The game switches to the pseudo-3D view in Stage 2. The player must fight his way through a series of passageways before time runs out.
