Description

The first Contra game for the 32-bit consoles and released exactly 10 years after the first Contra.

Unlike the original Contra and follow-ups, this is an overhead-view 2D shooter (with 3D graphics) that plays more like a side-scrolling Commando or Mercs.

The graphics are truly 3D; an option allows you to view them as red/blue images, and some packages of Contra: LoW come with 3D glasses to garner full enjoyment of the feature.

Hidden within the game – accessible on a certain level and through a secret code – are a mini-version of Gyruss and a Pac-Man-like game called Pactank.

Screenshots

Contra: Legacy of War SEGA Saturn Final level - move over Katamari Damacy and Psychonauts - this stage is spherical... though unlike the other games it features some truly terrible controls and camera.
Contra: Legacy of War SEGA Saturn Fighting some sort of a flame-thrower-bot-thing.
Contra: Legacy of War SEGA Saturn Another mid-boss. This one has a predictable yet annoying attack pattern.
Contra: Legacy of War SEGA Saturn First level boss. Your biggest worry here is the camera position which fails to show all the enemies behind you.
