North American box art.

Super C is a run-and-gun action shooter from Konami and sequel to Contra. It was originally an arcade cabinet released in 1988, but was later ported to many different platforms.

Status

I have beat this game several times. At my peak, I was able to beat it without dying.

Review

  • Overall: 6/10
  • Best Version: NES

Good

  • The controls are really responsive and intuitive.
  • Each stage is pretty unique with new enemies, scenery, and music.
  • The game is challenging enough that even after playing for years, you'll still have difficulty beating it.
  • The graphics are really impressive, and using the theme of Alien (and, by proxy, Giger's art style) was a great idea.

Bad

  • The game is painfully difficult. Had I encountered this game later in life, I wouldn't have the patience for it. Thankfully there is a 10-lives cheat code which makes victory more possible for an amateur.
  • While they repaired the terrible flame thrower weapon from the first game, the laser gun is still terrible and even worse than the original rifle.

Ugly

  • Nothing.
