Your goal is to wipe out everything onscreen with an infinite supply of ammo and some truly excellent weapons powerups. While you don't get to choose which powerup you get, if you play it enough you can memorize where and when to get each powerup. You've got the fire gun, machine gun, and of course the spread gun (or spray gun). There's also a barrier sheild powerup and a bomb powerup, that kills everything onscreen. With these weapons you can annihilate everything to you hearts content. You can also jump and fire in 9 different directions, and trust me, you're gonna need to!
The game is hard too. One hit = death and you only have 3 lives. The first 4 levels are pretty easy, but the later ones, specifically Level 7, are a real challenge. Be prepared to scream at the TV and throw your NES controller because this game will try your patience.
Well I think I've said enough. All in all, a great game that doesn't require much thinking, but is endlessly replayable and utterly satisfying.
The game consists of sidescrolling and top view levels. They both play well each has their own method of difficulty. The levels and bosses are not too hard with the spread gun, but otherwise may prove a little challenging.
The controls are perfect the way only Contra can do it, but like any other Contra game, two player mode makes everything harder. You would think having a second person on the screen would help with the overwhelming amount of enemies, which it does, but the scrolling screen can mess up a player when they are moving and cause each other's death in the top scrolling levels.
The game is fun and the challenge of the game makes it even more fun. When you finally beat it you get a great sense of satisfaction.
