Contra, released in Japan as 魂斗羅 [Kontora], and in Europe as Probotector, is a run-and-gun based on the arcade game with two player simultaneous game play. You control Mad Dog or Scorpion and try to destroy an evil alien force. You get special weapons like the machine gun, flame thrower, and spray gun. There are eight areas, most of them are side view, but areas 2 and 5 use a pseudo-3D perspective. The game has a sequel, Super C (NES).
