This boss is too much for me...

Title Screen (Japanese version)
"Contra" is the title awarded to the most elite soldiers possesing expertise in guerilla warfare and the fighting spirit.
In the year 2631, a mysterious meteorite falls into the Galuga archipelago near New Zealand.
Two years later, a mysterious group of invaders known as "Red Falcon" conspire the fall of mankind by setting their base of operations all over Galuga.
The Earth's Marine Corps sends orders to destroy the alien base to Bill and Lance, members of the Marine's "Contra" unit.
A map of Galuga shows your current position in the game.
Palm trees are now animated in the Japanese version.
Bill: "I have arrived at 'Point A'. Commencing infiltration."
Gromaides now has glowing eyes in the Japanese version.
Actual snow effects in Stage 5.
Lance: "The base's interior defense system has been activated. Better destroy it quickly..."

Nice waterfall.

Hall of fame.
Let's continue where the game ended, in 48k version.
Beautiful graphics. Make a short cut and destroy the main nuclear core.
This final machinery armoured with turrets begins the level more or less damaged depending on the number of turrets destroyed inside the maze.
All turrets destroyed, the boss finally shows himself.
Short life.
Next level, upwards. A wrong jump a life is spent.
There's fire on the ground and a moveable platform upon it.
Dunno what happened to the aliens in this level but it has become the land of shorties.
A nasty cannon guards the right side.
Reaching the Guardian of another entrance.
Here it is: a mixture of an ant with the queen of Aliens.
Aim to that sort of jewel between the two-headed bio-machinery.
Lets get the hell out of here.
Again, only one turret was destroyed while walking through the corridors of the bunker.
This set of turrets not only has a boss hidden behind the curtains, but also an army of the Red Falcon Organization soldiers.
Here it comes the hidden "boss".
Winter time in Galuga archipelago.
A cargo floater filled with soldiers.
Worthy of an action film scene.
Red Falcon Organization's tank.
The first brute. Somehow It reminds me the 3rd final boss from Renegade's ZX Spectrum version.
Clean sky in New Zealand isn't it?
Pay attention to the pipe leaks (love the shadow effect).
The last brute tries to block the player from entering the core of the base.
Entering the core of the Extraterrestrial domains.
This ugly guardian (any resemblance to Alien is merely coincidental) defends the core of the Extraterrestrial entity.
Some deadly things are floating against the player.
The heart of the swarm of aliens is about to get destroyed. It launches crawlers which are very much alike the facehuggers.
