Behold! An imperfect run-through of Konami's third-act Mega Drive classic Contra: Hard Corps. We're dealing with the Japanese version here, which rather kindly gifted the players a lifebar. Everywhere else it was one-hit chance-downs. Ouch! Mega Drive Contra is especially notable for unceasing explosions: Semis belch open. Robots have colour-clash seizure panics. Buildings topple. Everything detonates.
