Just a few short weeks ago, a group of posters on the NeoGAF forums set out on a mission - a rather dangerous mission, you might say. Their objective? To recreate the entirety of Konami's NES shooter smash hit, Contra, using LittleBigPlanet. Since then, the seven members of the LittleBig Contra team have toiled away, studying the maps, tilesets, and sprites of the original Contra for research. And I'm pleased to report this evening that their mission is an absolute success."
