You tried.

Nice attempt at recreating Kontra, had some major hitbox issues though among other things

you didn't even try. this is a disgrace to contra as a whole. it's slow, its laggy, you die way too easily (and contra is really easy to beat) plus the music is just wrong, you should've used the nes version

20th anniversary? Am I missing something? This is just Contra but just slower, more laggy, and worse controls.

Just go to Virtualnes to play the real thing people

Quite Entertaining

The weapons ammo and upgrades and such were so well copied keep up that with such good copies you might as well be playing Contra for the computer. Such a nice tribute for the 20th Year Anniversary and the sound effects and music were cloned perfectly, my favorite part about Contra done so well in this. The stages and instructions were so clear and simple as well as the storyline being very generously explained as I had totally not expected that.

The preloader was even fuzzy for the actual Contra game even in High Qualtiy a bit the harder difficulties were really lagging and hard to play. The difficulty was always really difficult for anyone who isn't a real Contra fan I'm not to good at Contra so it took me a long time to beat the game on Easy and Medium as for Hard and Insane, I never did. But still a great job!

Some good copies of stuff in here but if your just looking for a shooter or video game remake it's to hard but a true contra fan would absolutely love this!
