Contra 4

Contra 4 is a 2D side-scrolling action game for the Nintendo DS and the eleventh original installment in the Contra series. It is based on the same 2D gameplay system featured in the series through Contra III: The Alien Wars, returning to the old method of picking up power-up icons to obtain new weapons. The action spans both screens of the Nintendo DS system and a grappling hook can be used by the player's character to latch onto railings, allowing the player's character to move from one screen to the other. The game has an ESRB : T / CERO : B (age 12 and up) rating.

Features

In addition to the standard side view stages, Contra 4 features tunnel stages similar to the two “3D view” stages from the original Contra, in which the perspective shifts behind the character's back. The action in these stages is displayed solely on the upper screen, while the bottom screen is used to display the stage's map and the locations of power-ups. The game requires players to collect multiple power-ups to create new and explosive weapon combinations. It features dual-screen presentation allows for frantic action and massive boss encounters, and 2-player cooperative action lets you take on the enemy with twice the firepower.
