Default Super Contra

Just found it last night on the Wii.

Endless ammo? Repetitive enemies? Konami Code?

You betcha.

It is as awesome as you all remember.

If you remember it...

I only remember 8-bit Contra, but I'm definitely giving it a look now!

This one uses a modified Konami Code, but a Konami code all the same.

I was happy Wii programmed it in.

Three lives is barely enough to fight the Sandinista Junta.

Contra, Metroid, and Kid Icarus are my all-time favorite NES games. They don't make 'em like that anymore!
