Contra Hard Corps [Sega Genesis, 1994] Invincibility is not enough!
Set five years after the events of Contra III: The Alien Wars, a terrorist group led by the renegade Colonel Bahamut has stolen an alien cell recovered from the war and now intends to use it to produce weapons.
Instead of the traditional heroes of Bill and Lance, a new task force known as the Hard Corps (with four members) are sent to deal with the situation. The game features a branching storyline with multiple possible endings.
Contra Hard Corps has impressive bosses, eye-catching graphics, explosions which test the limits of TV speakers, simple control configuration, and intense action – and man, the game is hard as hell!!!
Enjoy the struggle!
