Contra is originally an arcade game released in 1987 by the Konami Corporation. Take the role of a commando sent to a tropical jungle to eradicate an alien threat. For most of the game, you run to the right across platforms, shooting bullets across the screen to destroy any enemies in your way. In two base stages, the view changes to behind your commando's back. The stages look 3D, but you are still constrained to move left and right (until you blow out the room's back wall... but as you move forward, you will not be attacked).
This anniversary edition features more options and better effects with an advanced high score system. You can redefine your control keys and joystick buttons in the game options. When using a USB joystick you may need to switch it to analog mode. Harder difficulty results in higher score.
The menu items can be activated and deactivated via mouse clicks and the game is played with the help of keyboard or joystick.
