For the Game Boy, Konami's bringing their hottest action series to the portable format. Just like the Super Nintendo game, this one is exact in every way. In fact, even the scaling of that one plane is intact!

Take on the forces of Red Falcon in a fight to the finish. Collect power-ups, and blaze the entire screen with firepower. Aliens, sentry guns, and other terrors will make this one of the most intense shooters around for the Game Boy.

Contra: The Alien Wars continues the great Contra series, and is done justice on the Game Boy. If you want an exact translation of the Super Nintendo game, then this one is for you. Are you ready to start blasting some alien sleaze?

Game Reviews

Those brave, elite warriors known to you and me as the Contras, are back and ready for some more alien butt-kicking. Most of you gamers out there will remember that this adventure on the Super NES platform set the standard a few years back. All I can say is that Game Boy players are in for a real treat when this game makes its debut! Nearly all of those alien-roasting levels are here, some with different twists! Because we're talking about the G.B. here, expect it to play a little slower than its Super NES counterpart, though it's not something die hard G.B. players would notice. Great gaming on the go!

THE GOOD

Game Boy players will get their taste of Contra action! A truly amazing job. Konami!

THE BAD

The action gets so intense sometimes that you should have a Super Game Boy to play it!

THE UGLY

The humiliation you feel telling people you were beaten by a gigantic turtle!
