Get some! Or give. Giving is good too.
Good morning Painkillers, and welcome to another addition of Grab A Buddy Monday. Today I figured that we would talk about an all time classic. When you hear the phrase, “NES Hard”, this is one of the games that made that phrase famous. Well, it’s time to grab your buddy, hook up your NES, and it’s time to play some Contra.
Quick backstory for the game. It is set in the year 2633. The Red Falcon Organization has an evil plan to take over the world. It is up to two men PFC. Bill Rizer and PFC. Lance Bean to stop the Red Falcon, and expose the alien threat to the planet. (Wait a second, evil organization, aliens, two elite soldiers that can stop them? Didn’t I do this game already last month? No, just a simple coincidence.)
You and your buddy play as Bill and Lance as you battle your way through seven gruelling levels, each one harder than the last. You start off with a basic riffle, that you can find better weapons throughout the game. You can pick up either a machine gun, laser gun, a fireball fun, and the ever popular spread gun. (Hold the hell up! I did do this game already! It was just called Metal Slug X!)
This game is a challenge, but that is where the fun is at. It’s not impossible to beat, but it will take a lot of time and practice. It may seem that you don’t get enough lives and continues to beat this game, but there are people out there that have done this. For the rest of us, I gave you some help in the title of this article, so enjoy. Until next time Painkillers.
