OVERVIEW

GameTap is an online video game service that provides downloads of over a thousand games, from PC to console. The latter is delivered in emulated form. In July of 2006, a deal was signed with Konami to provide several of Konami’s console games for download via the GameTap service. This included Contra: Hard Corps.

Like the Nintendo Wii’s Virtual Console service, the games run via emulators, thus this version of Contra: Hard Corps is identical to the Genesis version (North American release). Typical of emulators, you have various customization options, including controls (keyboard, gamepad, etc.). In GameTap’s case, the emulators and ROM images were downloaded to the client PC in an encrypted form that consisted of segmenting the data into multiple files that were then stored in multiple locations.

In late 2010, GameTap had removed a large number of its console game downloads, including Contra: Hard Corps, due to unresolvable technical issues in the service’s software updates.

Covers: N/A; this version of Contra: Hard Corps is a digitally downloaded product.
