Best Version: Game Boy

— This section contains spoilers! —

Good

  • The game has decent graphics and sound.
  • There is a good amount of variety among the enemies, bosses, and level design.
  • In the brief time you have, the game presents a tough challenge, even for someone skilled in Contra games.
  • I really like the new homing gun, and was pleased that they dropped the laser gun.

Bad

  • With only 5 levels, the game is pretty short.
  • Some of the music is reused from the NES games without even attempting to remix it.
  • The final boss (after defeating the guardian) is extremely dull.
  • The Japanese and European releases didn't give the game a new title.

Ugly

  • Although there isn't anything really wrong with the game, it's kind of weak. It's basically just an inferior Contra title. It plays more like a lower-quality port than a new game.
