Video Game Classics: Contra

Video Game Classics: Contra Known as Gryzor in Europe, and several regions around the world, this 1987 run-and-gun action game was developed by Konami for the arcades, before being adapted to the home consoles the following year. In Contra, players control one of two armed military commandos named Bill and Lance, who are sent on a mission to neutralize an Alien entity that is planning to take over the Earth. In this old school action game, players equip a rifle with unlimited ammo while jumping and shooting in eight directions. Due to being insanely difficult, it has developed a cult following by hardcore game enthusiasts. Join WatchMojo.com as we take a look at the video game classic Contra.
