Contra is back!

Contra: Evolution is the first official Contra game for iOS, bringing all of the run-and-gun action of the 1988 original with 21st century graphics and controls to the palm of your hands.

Collect power-ups, unlock new levels and characters, and take on challenges in this arcade blast from the past. With updated HD graphics and future iOS 7 compatibility, get ready for a whole new Contra experience!

Great but...

I'd love the fact that I can play my favorite game in hd quality but I don't like the fact that it automatically fires the gun for you. Could you please add a manual firing system? Then I'll give it 5 stars


This is an awesome game and one of my favorites! Thank you for making everything cheaper! Please add customizable controls.
