Contra Evolution Hands-On Preview
Hot on the tails of Ghosts ‘N Goblins Golden Knights, Contra is now getting its own 3D remake on Android. Currently only available in Korea, Contra Evolution is a faithful recreation of the original game rendered with full 3D graphics. So those third person sequences from the NES will now look that much cooler. Levels and enemies are near perfect representations of their retro counterparts in this hard as nails remake.
We recently spent some time with this game and came back with a hands-on video to share. Contra Evolution plays exactly like the game its based on, which means its both fun and infuriating. Cheap deaths abound due to bottomless pits and enemy spawn positions. While the game itself is great, it employs an obnoxious free to play system where you literally pay by the minute. That’s a shame, because Contra Evolution is a great game.
