Contra III: The Alien Wars, Super Nintendo

Arguably the best instalment in the infamous Konami Contra franchise, Contra III (aka Super Probotector in Europe) is a balls-to-the-wall run-and-gun, side-scrolling shooter than can be played one or simultaneous two-player.

The mayhem rarely stops as you blast your way from one insane monster to the next, and there are some stunning set pieces along the way. Like the swooping plane early in the first level, or the stomping metallic spider that follows you up the wall in the second level.

Playing Contra III: The Alien Wars is certainly a memorable experience.

Some people prefer the Megadrive/Genesis version of Contra, called Hard Corps, but in my opinion it is not a patch on The Alien Wars on the SNES.
