Welcome to a comprehensive information center for the video game series, Contra.

The content of this website emphasizes the mainstream scene of Contra, featuring a great deal of media to complement a rich informational resource. This ranges from discussing the official versions of the main Contra games to digging into obscure or minute trivia and Easter Eggs. If you’re a fan of the series, you will not want to miss out on the wealth of information about the series, presented here.

Please select an entry below, or on the right, to dive into the alien-infested world of Contra.

I would also like to acknowledge several Contra-like games without going into detail:

Journey to Silius; Sunset Riders; Gunstar Heroes; Turrican; Metal Slug

DISCLAIMER:
I dedicate all my future work on this (and the other) blog to Jean-Yves “Jive” Delpech. He had passed away, as a cancer he was suffering from finally took away his life. Jive was probably the nicest and most approachable Doomer in the community. Although I cannot say much for his last works in Doom, nor can I agree with his choice to give up Doom due to a questionable religion, I have the utmost respect for him. Though I don’t know him personally, I am aware of how much of a good person he was. His absence from this world is a gap that will never be filled.

  1. I see here a great update🙂

    • Thank you🙂 I was planning to keep it subtle until the entire update was finished. Then I could make a big surprise. But I’m very glad you still look through my site. I hope you find some more useful information here and enjoy the structural changes to my pages. You can use any information you want, cx4😉

  2. Hey, man. How about some info on Contra Revolution? There’s barely any info regarding this online.

    • There is little info on Contra Evolution on my site because it has not been very accessible to me; therefore, I cannot play it extensively to make a write-up for a page. In addition to this, there is little useful information about the game elsewhere for me to cite except that it is an abysmal version of Contra, which I agree from experience. Its developers didn’t exactly handle releasing this game the best way, neither, which only further hindered its accessibility.

      On a more personal note, I admit that I despise that game and how much it is based on (micro)transactions. If that didn’t already discourage me enough from playing it, the unacceptable controls pretty much sealed the deal. What little I played the game, I wanted to do nothing else but close the app. This game has been a cruel reminder of the series’ direction and Konami’s attitude towards it; now Konami’s following suit with almost all of their other series, as you’re probably aware.
