Contra Cheats For NES

  1. Hard Difficulty

    After you beat the game, the credits roll by and you start over with the remaining lives you had. You will also start with the gun you had. This time around, there will be more enemies. They will also shoot a lot more, and some enemies may have more hit points.

  2. Shoot while ducking

    When you enter the Base 1 or 2 levels, you can shoot high while ducking. Hold Up on Controller 2 while Controller 1 is ducking. You will be ducking but your bullets will appear to go high. This may be hard to pull off yourself, so help is recommended.
