    Awesome score, @redelf - You've point pressed damn near perfect!
  4. 09-17-2019, 12:04 AM
    Good job John. There's not too many more points to be had for sure. There might be some creative ways to point press the single eye ball boss and the final stage better but that's about it. Accepted.

    - 0.33b7: Carlos A. Lozano, Jose Tejada Gomez, Phil Stroffolino and Eric Hustvedt added 'Contra' (Konami 1987) and clones Contra (bootleg) and Gryzor (bootleg). Known issues: There appears to be at least one incorrectly mapped sprite late on the final stage. The weapon-carrying enemies in the "into the screen" stages are supposed to be colored differently (orange). A control bit in sprite RAM exists which seems to serve this purpose, indicating an alternate palette. Sprite horizontal position is sometimes off by 8.
    
    
    - 20th September 1997: arcade@zws.com dumped Contra (Japan bootleg).
