    A killer instinct is all that matters in this doomsday extravaganza!

    Original Release Date: December 1988

    In this action-packed sequel to the popular Contra, players have little time to think.

Stages feature a combination of perspectives (side scrolling, top down, etc.) and intense battles against huge bosses. Use a variety of powerful weapons and tap into your killer instinct to survive the deadly waves of enemies. Because if your trigger finger lacks stamina, then Earth will lack a future!

Back of Box - NES:
    Shoot First and forget about the questions!

    After losing a confrontation against Super Commandos Mad Dog and Scorpion, the juices of destruction drip from the spiked tongue of the vile alien war monger-- Red Falcon.

    Now, he's coming back stronger than ever, with a sinister plan that includes having his intergalactic warriors seep into the brains of the U.S. army. To support his disguised forces of doom, he's recruited Jagger Froid, a demented alien from the Black Hole Galaxy. He's also shuttled in The Babalu Destructoid Mechanism with its Beam of Death.

    With torrential terror about to rain down upon civilization, Earth's only hope rests with you, Scorpion, and your pal, the Dogster. And if your spread guns, lasers, flame throwers, and mega shells fail to destroy Red Falcon's eight levels of terror, inlcluding radioactive lava fields, it's all over but the shouting, the screaming, and the cries from a disintegrating world.

    Featuring simultaneous play for two players, or play against the computer.

Back Cover - DOS:

    Save the earth by taking out the trash!

    The vile alien war monger Red Falcon has set his sinister sights on the planet Earth. First, his inter-galactic warriors will seep into the brains of America's Armed Forces. Then it's on to a full-scale annihilation of Earth's 5 billion (give or take a million) innocent inhabitants.

    Now only you, Scorpion, and your fellow Super Commando Mad Dog can cut this carnage off at the pass. But to get through Red's five merciless mazes of terror you must combine super survival skills and ferocious firepower with cunning, instincts and good old-fashioned guts.

  • Featuring all the action and powerful graphics of the popular arcade version.

  • Five challenging levels of adventure, each with its own seemingly unstoppable terminal terror at the end.

  • Besides wiping out Red Falcon, you must rack up a high score to guarantee enshrinement in the Super Commando Hall of Fame.

  • Side views and overhead war perspectives.

  • Numerous weapons can be obtained, including the Machine Gun, Spread Gun and Laser. Alien-blasting power can also be increased with the help of a Mega Shell.

  • Simultaneous play for two players teams Scorpion and Mad Dog in battle against Red Falcon, or go one on one against the vile one yourself.
