App description: Contra is back!

Contra: Evolution is the first official Contra game for iOS, bringing all of the run-and-gun action of the 1988 original with 21st century graphics and controls to the palm of your hands.

Bill Mad Dog Rizer and Lance Scorpion Bean are back to business fighting aliens in the jungles of South America--but can you survive one of the hardest games ever? Collect power-ups, unlock new levels and characters, and take on challenges in this arcade blast from the past. With updated HD graphics and future iOS 7 compatibility, get ready for a whole new Contra experience!

I would be happy without the evolution revolution bit in the title....not saying this is bad, but the original, with original graphics, and with the Konami code, would be a mega-ton of awesomeness

I love how it is auto-fire and the tap is only for the jump. Now that's what i call good touch screen consideration and implementation.

Whoa... Now were speaking my language! It'd be even more awesome if it actually turns out to be a good game... and of course, if it were in the US!
