I remember playing Contra on the old consoles. It was a brilliant game and legendary in it's time. A while back it was relaunched on the DS to rave reviews and there was even talk of a potential rebirth in the genre. This mobile version however, is enough to kill those rumours pretty quickly.
The game seems to be a port of the original with graphics looking like they belong in a museum. Ok, so there are a fair few things going on in the screen, but at least give us the option of retro graphics or updated graphics Konami! And sound too, very 1980s with the effects and music. Still, neither of these are that bad when comparing them to the controls in the game."
