, known as Gryzor in Europe and Oceania, is a run and gun action game developed and published by Konami, originally released in the arcades on February 20, 1987.
In Japanese, the title is spelled with the kanji characters 魂斗羅 or Kontora.
This is a form of ateji, in which the characters are used for their phonetic pronunciations rather than any inherent meaning they may have.
The main character is equipped with a rifle with an unlimited amount of ammunition.
The player can also jump, move and fire in eight directions, as well as move or jump simultaneously while firing. In addition to the standard side view stages, Contra also features stages in which the player character is seen from behind and must move towards the background in order to proceed.
A single hit from any enemy, bullet, or other hazard will instantly kill the player character and discard the current weapon. Each of these "3D maze" stages are set inside the corridor of an enemy base in which the player must fight through the base's defenses in order to reach the core of the base.During the 3D maze stages, the upper screen will display a map of the base along with a time limit.Each maze stage is followed by a "3D fixed" stage set at the core of the base, in which the player must destroy a series of flashing sensors to expose an even larger sensor and destroy it.Contra also features a two-player cooperative mode.Both players occupy the same screen and must coordinate their actions.One player lagging behind can cause problems for his partner, as the screen will not scroll onward, and a slow player can be fatal to his partner.
