Contra is a game that’s all about the powerups. You’re a soldier on the run fighting the hordes of enemies thrown your way and your only weapon is a gun upgradable with varying powerups changing the style of your shot. They range from rapid fire to flame thrower, but the best is definitely the spread shot. It spread bullets out all over the screen, killing everything ahead and making the game a breeze.
