This game is a hack of Contra which completely alters the level layouts, making the game much harder than the original. The bosses have also been altered. Some of the bridges in the Jungle level don’t blow up and it’s difficult to tell where you can jump out of the water because of the new layout, with certain areas where the player jumps down to a different part of the water when they’re already in it. The Base levels now take up the whole screen in size and the targets have been changed, although strangely the enemies still spawn in the same spots that they did in the original. Some targets are also invisible here for unknown reasons. The gun targets here also fire more often than they did originally. The player is now given 5 lives instead of 3 and whenever they lose a life, they keep the gun that they had when they died. The audiovisuals are the same, apart from the title screen which doesn’t have the Contra logo or Konami copyright. The Base levels also look considerably different, despite using the same tiles. Many have criticised this hack for being almost unplayable due to the changed layouts. Prepare for a not so normal Contra experience as it will be very difficult!

WTF...Reviewed By: TheLuigiLightning on 20 May 2015
This is a pathetic excuse for a hack of the amazing, iconic game known as Contra! I feel like my IQ level drops every time I play it, and feel extreme trauma from the level design!
For some reason, the creator thought it would be creative to make it so things in the stages, with a certain function, did the function of another thing! For some reason, some random grass patches will explode under you like a bridge in the original game! There are also some water patches which will allow you to swim, and others which won’t! That’s confusing and inconsistent! I’m not even joking, there is one part where you have to stand on open air!!!
That sort of thing is not creative! That’s the very bottom of the line of creativity, and almost seems like this guy had such a lack of inventiveness, that he changed everything that we know and are familiar with in Contra!!!
Then there’s also dumb factors like underestimating us as a player; he gives us 7 lives, and even gives us more continues. I generally don’t like it when hacks give you more resources, but lives are one thing; continues, I’m NEVER okay with! Not to mention you keep the weapon you had…
The levels are also not well designed, and 99% of the time, I feel like a death is not my fault, but because of cheapness. I’ve seen a lot crap on this sight, but this one is so bad, it’s almost laughable!
If you want to see a Contra hack done right, check out Trax’s Revenge of the Red Falcon. It hasn’t been officially released yet, but it’s infinitely better than this garbage…
