Well this games been a nice surprise. Managed to get a promo code and i'm really enjoying it.

This is a pretty good Contra style game.

You shoot constantly but the joystick works well for moving/aiming your shot 8 ways and theres a jump button.

First 'world' was full of 'fruit' which was a bit odd, i wanted some decent enemies like Contra but i see what they've done, level 2 is full of 1950's b movie style aliens so each level seems like it has its own enemies.

Some of the enemies leave behind powerups whether thats more energy or a 3 way gun etc. At the end of the level theres a 'boss' to defeat (Would have been nice to see how much energy the boss has left).

The menus are a bit sparse, no real background story or intro as to who you are/what you are doing etc.

But i do think its a pretty good Contra clone, i did get a promo code so i got the game for free, at $2.99 its probably overpriced, $1.99 would be fair

no offense, but you should drop the price for introduction, not later on (and antagonize initial supporters)!

bad strategy...

Well for 99c its a really good game to get.

For anyone tempted, have a look at the video, its a nice run n gun style game, controls work well, well worth picking up if you like Contra style games

Sure looks nice, but the auto-fire detracts from thar old Contra feeling. Will wait for more impressions. Thanks psj!

Yeah ideally you would fire yourself but i've played a few contra clones where you are shooting constantly. Be nice if there was an option to autofire on or just have a standard fire button. But on the other hand shooting constantly is quite good as you can jump and shoot automatically which is handy for some enemies

Supports iCade and Contra style. Downloading pretty much now.

Quick edit: downloaded but just see it's iPhone only. I'll x2 it or stick on my phone for later. Universal would be good (for you guys too).
