Game Review (by Spinner 8):
Well damn, what more can you say about this game? It’s Contra! It kicks ass! There’s a flimsy plotline in the Japanese version! The 30-man code still works! Seriously, this game is a blast.. I’m sure everyone knows that though. This is of course the Japanese release of Contra, and there are some extra bonus things that don’t really amount to much in the end, but they’re still pretty cool, and they make you wonder why Konami took that stuff out of the U.S. release. Anyway, go play dammit! And get a second player, for God’s sake.. It’s twice as fun!
This is a new patch for the Japanese version of Contra. This project has nothing in common with the old patch by the MadHacker. I do not mean to insult the old patch, but I wanted to show just how far ROM hacking has come in the past ten years.
The patch has been updated recently, several years after the fact. The quest for perfection never stops.
This patch requires a headered ROM.
