... on the greatness that is Contra :)

Contra - The Hard Corps.  If you dig the first 2, you'll definitely dig this one.  Its kinda hidden as a clone under Probotector in the Megadrive games list (which will be fixed in the next version of FBA), which explains why I didn't find it until yesterday!

The games bosses are so dynamic and amazing, its really quite impressive.  One boss zapps you into sort of a virtual/digital world, where he assembles enemies out of star constellations which then proceed to attack you.  Then there's this cube of pixels, which assemble into different enemies such as slightly-off tetris pieces, 'copter and tank.  This is something you'll have to see and play for yourself as words don't quite do it justice.

Agree!
This Contra is awesome and also reminds me his rival from SNES, which is Contra III: The Alien Wars. Both games are amazing and comes in the golden ages of the arcades, the 90's.
Here some picks of Contra III: The Alien Wars:














Nice years! Contra III is great! :biggrin:

Amazing, in Konami's Monster Maulers, you go up against the brian with arms from Salamander - named Brainy, and it even plays a remix of Salamander's boss music!

This made my day! :D

Yeah man, I highly recommend Contra III: The Alien Wars, as well Contra Hard Corps too.
Both games are so cool. In Contra III I prefer the graphics, the music and some backgrounds. Now I'm trying to beat Contra 3 in the Snes9x and.... what a challenge!! Now I'm addicted to this game (you will too, so, think twice before start playing).  :eek:
Ah, I have the Snes9x last test build, if you want,  just send me a PM.
BTW, now I'm playing Battletoads and Double Dragon. There is also the Mega Drive and the SNES version of this game. I prefer the SNES version, better sound/music and better graphics, but in the other hand I prefer to play in the FBA emulator... who knows some day a crazy programmer don't try to convert some SNES classics to our lovely emulator! :p
Listen the SNES music of this game: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VWWONVQIpqI
And this amazing tune:                     https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E5pGhKo5QVc
Crazy, hum?

Edit: The Mega Drive version of Battletoads and Double Dragon is awesome. So we can play this game in FBA and don't miss a thing. I highly recommend this game!

Freddy that sounds cool, I like playing net games of Battletoads, but I never played Battletoads vs. Double Dragon.   i have the rom, but I never fired it up.  We'll have to give it a go sometime for sure :)

Rocket Knight Adventures (Megadrive)
Gargoyles (Megadrive, will work in the next release of FBA)

Nice dink... Always with good suggestions of games. Xexex I never played before, so... I will try it.
I like Rocket Knight Adventures too, great game!  :wink:

These last days I played FBA in Kaillera with a friend. The emulator is running very very good online!
We beat Gunforce 2 and Zombies Ate My Neighbors.
The two games are awesome. Gunforce 2 it's like Metal Slug. Probably is the same team.

But we have more fun playing Zombies Ate my Neighbors. It's a very fun game!


Other day I beat one of the best beat n up that I ever played.
It's Batman Returns... Don't die before play this game (not avaliable in FBA  :redface:)

Hey Freddy - right on, I figured you would dig Rocket Knight Adv.!
I like how you can charge up and either do a super attack or fly off :)  And best of all, the gameplay is tops!
The only one I havn't played yet is Zombies ate my Neighbors, going to give it a spin later today :)

The main rom in FBA is Zombies, but:
"Various elements and aspects of horror movies are referenced in the game with some of its more violent content being censored in various territories such as Europe and Australia, where it is known only as Zombies."
So, the original rom is Zombies Ate my Neighbors!
