Contra Returns launched on the Google Play Store

Well, the headline pretty much covers the big news with this one. Contra Returns launched on the Google Play Store, bringing a modern reboot of the classic run-and-gunner into the palm of your hand.

As you can imagine, there are a lot of changes here. Perhaps the most interesting is the inclusion of a whole bunch of different PvP modes to the experience. They range from one-on-one duels to more complex 3v3 fort battles.

There’s a lot of solo and co-op stuff too, with a hardcore lifestyle and plenty of PvE action you can dip your fingers into while playing with a friend.

There are different heroes to choose from and envision around 200 levels of carnage to fight your way through. It sounds fun, quick, and a bit nostalgic too, we’re guessing.

If you want to try the game, you can click here to download Contra Returns from the Google Play Store right this second. It’s free to download, but there are some IAPs that hopefully won’t take too much away from the fun, but we’ll have to wait and see.
