In the classic NES game, Contra, the evil alien Red Falcon got blown out of town by Super Commandos Mad Dog and Scorpion. Now this nasty alien is back for revenge and stronger then ever. This time his sinister plan involves infiltrating the American Army with his villainous intergalactic warriors. Hey, who can stop this creepy alien menace?

Well, if you haven't already guessed, it's Mad Dog and Scorpion -- back on track and ready to ground the Falcon permanently. This time around you'll have to use many familiar weapons, including spread guns, lasers, flame throwers, and mega shells to stop the Falcon and his evil cronies. The game features horizontally scrolling, as well as overhead horizontal and vertical scrolling levels. And Konami has added three entirely new levels to the five already familiar to arcade fans. This is one sequel you won't want to miss.

Game Reviews

  • Manufacturer: Konami
  • Machine: NES

Bill Alvord of Wellsville, New York, has found a way to start a new game with your previous score and either the standard three men or the number of men you had left. Do these during the title screen after you have finished (defeated the final end boss) the game. To start with three men and your previous score, press A, B, START. To start with your previous score and men press B, A, START.

In our July 1990 installment of Easter Egg Hunt, we incorrectly provided the tip for starting the game with ten men. The correct code, from the title screen, is R, L, D, U, A, B, then START. We apologize for the mistake.

In reality, this is Super Contra, and the sequel is every bit as good (if not better) than the original. Based on the arcade title, Super C throws in new features and tons of explosive combat action in both horizontal and vertical scrolling environments. Two-player options and Boss fights with alien organisms help round out this intense shooter.

Undoubtedly one of the best video games shown at the CES was Super 'C (or Super Contra) from Konami. From the spectacular new level of graphics detail to the varied cast of enemy weapons and dangers, this game had us begging for more!

Continuing the theme from the original Contra, this one or two-play-er cooperative contest not only features some of the best graphics ever packed into a Nintendo cart, it also has intense horizontal and verticle shooting action that blew away nearly every other NES game at the show! This is a blockbuster from beginning to end, that has the perfect combination of fast-moving battles, super graphics and animation, challenging Bosses, and explosive power-ups.

The eagerly anticipated sequel to the original Contra game has finally arrived! Super C continues the adventures of the dynamic duo that removed the enemy terrorists in the first game. This time out, our heroes must contend with much more than a fanatical terrorist organization. Now, alien forces have joined in and you must contend with mechanized spiders and other organisms, as well as tanks and helicopters. Power-ups can also be collected once again to help battle the evil forces!

People say:

9.0

Super C doesn't represent a drastic change from the original, nor a totally unique entry into the running/shooting library of games. The cart is executed extremely well, however, with graphics that are fantastically detailed and play that is intense. A good game supported by great features.

8.0

Konami again comes up with a fantastic shooter. Not content with just another sequel, Konami dives into new chip technology. The result is a game with unequaled graphics, sounds and spectacular game play. A truly outstanding shooting game in almost everyway.

9.0

One of my favorite arcade games has finally arrived for the NES! Captures the feel and play of the coin-op, and even adds three new levels! Mind-blowing graphics and sound as well as excellent game play make this one of the best shooters ever created for the Nintendo system.

8.0

There's no denying the fact that Super C is one of the best NES shooters to come along in some time. The graphics are beautiful, both in the fore and background. The available attack options are equally impressive as are the Bosses that take up the entire screen. In a word - magnificent!

This arcade version of Super Contra (Super C) is the same as its forebearer. The main difference was in it's versatility. While the original Contra game had 3 versions of game play (side-scrolling, up-scrolling, and pseudo-first-person), Super C added a top-view perspective. As a result of this and changes to the enemy forces, it was a more difficult game to master.

This version changed the game's futuristic setting to a contemporary one, although the premise of Bill and Lance fighting against their former comrades-in-arms remained more or less the same.

This game is also known as Probotector II: Return of the Evil Forces.
