Contra now coming to iOS


Up, up, down, down, left, right, left, right. Does this seem familiar?

If it does, well surely, you are one of the lucky ones who were able to play Contra back in the 90s. The NES classic was developed by Konami and is an alien and human shooting side-scroller game that is highly addictive and entertaining. I know, because I was really hooked to the game back then.

Anyway, iOS developer CocoaChina/Chukong will be bringing the good old days as they were able to obtain a licensing agreement for the game that will enable them to remake the classic game on iOS. The new game, called Contra Evolution, will be first fully licensed mobile version of the Konami classic.

Already launched in Chine, it will be landing to the US App Store (and hopefully, to other geographies as well) on June 27. The iPhone version is priced at $0.99 while the iPad one is at $2.99.
