Contra in Brandshop
The original version of the game, holding the absolute leadership in the genre since 1987, available on our website.
HISTORY OF THE GAME
Contra is a «shoot ‘em all» game, created by the Japanese company Konami in 1987. That was the year when the game war released on slot machines, but it gained true popularity later, when it acquired the version for Nintendo Entertainment System. The game by Konami had a big influence on the gaming industry, winning the gamers’ hearts all over the world thanks to its amazing gameplay - because the heroes will not only have to randomly fire, using different types of weapons, but also evade the instant rafales, hide under water and use their sniper skills from the lying position.
The action takes place on our planet in 2631, when two warriors named Bill Rizer and Lance Bean have to free us from the unknown creatures that captured the minds of the Earth’s inhabitants. The two main characters look very similar to Arnold Schwarzenegger from the «Predator» movie and Sylvester Stallone from «Rambo», driving us into nostalgia for our childhood. Moreover, the weapons used in the game will amaze even the most sophisticated Earth defenders: shotgun, machine gun, laser beam, flamethrower and artillery mortar, burning everything around.
While creating levels for Nintendo, the developers showed truly remarkable imagination. The result of it all - a serious project with recognizable graphics and excellent soundtrack, with very hard levels and appropriate special effects. In our view, one of the most interesting characters are massive bosses, which are not killed even after a dozen clicks on the «Z» button.
We would also like to add that on our website you can play the original version of Contra, created for Asia and popular in Russia. Unfortunately, our friends from Europe and the United States didn’t have an opportunity to play this wonderful version, because they got only the cut one, in which all people were replaced by robots, and the background was static or trimmed. We hope you will make it to the end, get the savior helicopter and liberate our planet from something very aggressive and sticky.
Play and share your results!
