That sh*t was the Bomb!

That was awsome. I haveb't played Contra in forever and it was really close to the old ones. You should have put in the old cheat code as a secret for looking like the enemy or something. If you don't remember its up up down down left right left right b a!

To be honest, I never played Contra. After playing this, I have to say that I wish it wasn't so. Having seen a vid of these stages in the original Contra, I'll say that it looks like a great reproduction.

What can I say? It's fast, it's fun, its hard.

Scoring system is great. Let's you know how you stack up to other players. Very cool.

It's difficult in the best way possible. And I can't stop playing it. I've been playing it for the past two days for hours at a time. It's a credit to the game, and your reproduction that I would be so drawn to sit in front of the screen and play until my vision blurs time after time.

Only downside is that it's only those three levels. But as what I've said already can attest to, that's enough. It's pulled me in, and I've been coming to the site just to play this. I've been obsessing over it, trying desperatly to outdo myself time and again.

Long story short: Great Submission.
