OVERVIEW

Hamster Corporation’s port of arcade Contra comprises a PS2 game that runs the Japanese arcade original through an emulator. It is unmodified. An options menu can be summoned, wherein various DIP switch settings can be customized, including the difficulty, score-lives tier, starting number of lives and video settings.

There is also a demonstration video included, which showcases the game’s completion. It is, however, of amateur quality.

Contra is the feature arcade title of Volume 16 in Hamster Corporation’s arcade-to-PS2 series, Oretachi Gēsen Zoku.
