Cheats and Walkthroughs
Nintendo Wii owners looking to get their Contra
on are in for some good news: Contra Rebirth
is hitting WiiWare next week! TheFeed's
Patrick Klepek got his hands on this new, old-school shooter at PAX 2009
. As expected, it's terribly challenging (he died...a lot), but in that lovable Contra
way. Klepek noted that while the game is difficult, it's not as ridiculous as past installments:
"If the PAX 2009 demo is anything to go by, however, Contra Rebirth will be easier than previous installments. There's less bullet hell (where enemy bullets swarm the entire screen) but plenty of cheap, out-of-your-control deaths (a Contra staple). Still, the sheer fact that I made it to the end of the first stage probably indicates the whole of Contra Rebirth has been designed for less hardcore-inclined to enjoy themselves. I don't have time to memorize bullet patterns anymore!"
