Based on the SNES classic, Contra III: The Alien Wars, your job is to clean out 6 levels filled with aliens and humans who all wish to see you dead, and stopping the Red Falcon from taking over the world.

Two players can play side by side in each level, upgraded from the original designs in the SNES title, as well as new levels based on those from Contra: Hard Corps (originally released on the Genesis).
