Konami, 1987

Screen orientation: Vertical
Pinout: JAMMA
Players: 1 or 2, taking turns
Buttons: 2 buttons (fire and jump)
Also known as: Contra

In this game you control a soldier, shoot anything that moves and pick up various weapons. It has both horizontally and vertically scrolling levels, and occasionally the viewpoint changes so you watch your man from behind as he runs "into" the screen.

This is a hard and fun game, but it's rather short. Unfortunately, my PCB seems to be a bootleg, and it has corrupt graphics in the end and the sound isn't working. Fortunately, I got it rather cheap.
