Contra / Gryzor Banana Productions / Konami, Inc. 1988

Release Date: 1988 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. As either Bill (player 1) or Lance (player 2), the player must get to the end of each stage, shooting everything in sight, while avoiding enemy fire themselves. The player can upgrade their standard-issue rifle into one of four different weapons, including the powerful spread shot. It has innovative pseudo-3D stages along with other platform stages and endless ammunition in a very tough alien invasion fighting game. The game is based on an arcade game and became even more popular when it was ported to NES in 1988. Its two-player simultaneous gameplay was an uncommon feature in video games at the time. A 3-level fan remake with 16-bit graphics was titled Contra: Locked 'N Loaded.
