Contra will arrive soon on iOS
Up, up, down, down, left, right, left, right, B, A, B, A…. That’s right. Contra, one of the most popular computer game from the 80’s and 90’s will soon be available for iOS devices.
For the too young and unacquainted, Contra is a very popular Konami side-scrolling classic where you control Rambo-like characters and blast your way out of an Alien-infested island.
Developer CocoaChina/Chukong managed to acquire the license for Contra and made a “complete mobile reincarnation” of the game which will be called Contra Evolution. Take a look at the sample gameplay below:
Contra Evolution is priced at 99 cents for the iPhone and $2.99 for the iPad and will arrive in the US App Store on June 27.
