It’s about time that the NES classic and series forebearer, Contra, received the iOS treatment. Based on the original Contra, CocoaChina’s Contra Evolution for iOS devices was released in China earlier this year, and they have been working hard to optimize and polish the game for the U.S market. The game is now ready to deliver the goods and is now available on the iOS App Store with the iPhone version selling for USD 0.99 and the iPad version going for USD 2.99. Check out the press release below:
International mobile game developer CocoaChina/Chukong, in partnership with legendary digital entertainment company Konami, today announced the release of Contra: Evolution for iOS. All of the bad guy-blasting, platform-jumping fun of the original 1988 Nintendo Entertainment System version of Contra is now available on iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch for veteran fans and players new to the franchise to enjoy.

Contra: Evolution combines all of the best parts of the original Contra game that players remember with mechanics designed for a modern audience, from level design that captures Contra’s famed difficulty to reimagined graphics inspired by the classic 8-bit art.
