Addiction in a small, beat up box.

  • Summary: If you ever played Super Probotector on the SNES, then buy this game. Something to do with different brands in America and here, but it's the same gameplay, same story, just the American release. I believe. Anyway, this game's brilliantly addictive, and if you're up for a challenge this is definitely the game for you. Not for the faint hearted!

A classic

  • Summary: The first thing you need to know is that this is an impressive conversion, all the levels that have been coverted from the snes version are identical. I was initially disappointed that the top down mode 7 levels from the original had not made it(i've got F zero they could have been fitted in on a bigger cart) but the chance to play two completely new Contra levels, more than makes up for this omission. So what are these levels like?

  • Summary: Contra was an excellent game back on the SNES, and its amazing they can now fit it on a handheld, with all its fancy graphic effects, but i warn you - Its INSANELY difficult!! Only one weapon can be carried, smart bombs are none existent, and setting the difficulty to easy makes it more fun to play, but gives you only half the levels than the normal game! No mode 7 sub-levels either! I Have the American version, but i assume the UK one has the same problems.
