Ya, I'm so confused. It doesn't appear to have anything to do with supper.

Okay, this is what happens when my question doesn't get answered in 5 minutes. The curiosity was killing me so I bought all 4.

Is this the actual game?!

In Soviet Russia, whenever anyone mentions Twilight, they are brutally PWNED by Simon Belmont... wait, that happens everywhere.

Believe it or not, they are all pretty terrible. Referring back to my OP, 2 & 3 are the same game and they are original Contra-ish. 1 & 4 are the same game and they are Contra-ish on an ice planet or something. The enemies are too fast and too numerous for the unresponsive controls. Let's talk about the controls for a second:



You have a crosshair/D-pad-ish thing as well as J & K buttons. As you might guess, J is for fire and K is for jump.

But probably the thing that bothers me most about these games is that they all display title ellipses:
