OVERVIEW

To promote the Contra series, especially the release of Contra: Dual Spirits, Konami developed and released a special cell phone conversion of Super Contra. This version was also among many cell phone games sold through Konami’s mobile product delivery service, Konami Net DX.

The i-appli mobile platform employs a Java application environment named DoJa. It is an upgrade to the J2ME platform with fewer limitations.

The gameplay is based almost entirely on the NES version, featuring the same levels, weapons and enemies, using an engine running an upgraded J2ME platform. Conversely, the graphics have received a complete overhaul. The game uses tiles and sprites from the arcade original where applicable, in addition to color-based upgrades to the remainder of the visual elements. The intro sequence from the arcade original is even included. Additionally, 3 difficulty modes can be selected from. Like most cell phone games, it is strictly single player.
