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

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.

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.
