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 Another intro shot - this time featuring a spectacular explosion.
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.
Contra: Legacy of War SEGA Saturn Like in classic Contra games the player has to fight his way through a number of set-piece mid-boss battles in each level.
Contra: Legacy of War SEGA Saturn Fighting regular enemies - since the game is so hard and unfair, it's much easier to just dash past all the fluff between boss encounters.
