About

The Famicom/NES versions of Contra are an expanded port of the arcade version, developed in-house. The biggest difference is that the levels are restructured and significantly longer, with stages 5 through 8 being derived from and expanded from areas in the arcade version's final stage. The plot is altered as well, being set in the year 1987 in the Amazon, rather than 2633 in the Galuga archipelago. Weapons are slightly different in function and frequency, and the Konami Code makes a famous appearance. The Famicom version has additional graphical effects and between-mission cut-scenes not seen in the NES version.

Contra (1987) reviews and comments

A simple but super challenging and lots of fun game! Stage and characters design here is gorgeous and the soundtrack and sound effects are addictive to hear. It is an amazing game to play over and over again. My only problem with it is that, although it has different weapons possibilities, it is kinda only the Spread Gun the actually viable one to complete the game.
