Contra Returns Mobile Game Review

Konami has originally partnered with Tencent to bring the widely popular Contra I.P. to the mobile platform. You can play amongst four characters that have their own special abilities. The PvE story is intense, to say the least, and has hours of fun gameplay to be had. 

There is also a PvP aspect of the game which pits a team of three against another team of the same number. The players would appreciate the key features as the stages are as intense as the original game, Gear Up system, which lets you acquire different kinds of gears with varying rarities and enhancements and evolving.

As for the Gear Up system, each character can have up to six slots available for armor and three for weapons. Gather EXP tickets to evolve the gear and make them even more powerful. 

Fans seemed to resonate well with the game as it faithfully imitates the Contra of old and placed a fresh coat of paint on it to make it more appealing for new users. The levels are still as difficult as you remember, and playing with friends is still a blast worthy of a multiplayer game. Even in a single-player, you would feel challenged even more so.

'Contra Returns' Back Story

Back in 2017, the success of Contra Returns gave life to an English-language release for South East Asia. TiMi has successfully brokered a gaming partnership with Xbox and planned on a bigger market hence the Western hemisphere release date. 

There has been a lot of success within the use of the Contra I.P., such as Contra: Rogue Corps and Contra Anniversary Collection in 2019. The most recent, Contra: Rogue Corps was released in 2019 and is available on Windows, Nintendo Switch, Xbox One, and the PlayStation 4.
