Addendum 2: As of Janurary 31, 2015, Punchbox Studios has indefinitely stopped offering the game for download on the Google Play Store. Poor performance and (to a lesser extent) reception were likely factors in this decision.

TRIVIA

See the Trivia section of the iOS version of Contra: Evolution.

Harmless Borrowing:
There is no doubt that the penultimate boss, the alien head (Emperor Demon Dragon God Java), rips off the Xenomorph from the film Alien.

Similarly, the eggs surrounding the heart (Emperor-Demon Evil Heart Gomera Mosking) that constantly spawn arthropod aliens are based on the Eggs from Aliens that spawn Face Huggers.

RobotsAliens In Disguise:
The fourth stage boss is likely inspired by the Transformers logo:
