Contra: Hard Corps/Probotector (SEGA GENESIS) Run and gun 1994


Contra: Hard Corps, also known as Contra: The Hard Corps in Japan and Probotector in Europe and Australia, is a 1994 run-and-gun video game produced by Konami for the Sega Genesis. It was the first game in the Contra series to be released for a Sega platform.

Five years after the events of Contra III: The Alien Wars, a terrorist gang led by the renegade Colonel Bahamut has seized an alien cell retrieved during the conflict and plans to utilize it to manufacture weapons. To deal with the problem, a new task force known as the eponymous "Hard Corps" is dispatched. The game has a branching plot with different endings.

Hard Corps generated its own series of sequels, including the Appaloosa-created Contra: Legacy of War and C: The Contra Adventure, and the Arc System Works-created Hard Corps: Uprising. Hard Corps is now thought to be a spin-off from the primary Contra entries.

It was re-released in June 2019 as part of Contra: Anniversary Collection for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and Windows, as well as on the Genesis Mini dedicated console that same year. The game has been offered on Nintendo Switch Online's "Expansion Pack" since October 25, 2021.

Gameplay:

The goal of each stage of the game is to get to the conclusion by firing at every monster in your path and fighting the boss at the end. While the majority of the game is played on foot, several sections require the player to ride a Motoroid, a hoverbike that may convert into an ostrich-like robot. Unlike earlier Contra games, which had overhead sequences in addition to the traditional side-view levels, all of the stages in Hard Corps are played from the standard side-view perspective for the majority of the game. Another distinction is that the user may now select one of four distinct player characters. The tale is advanced through story cutscenes, which is a novel element in the game.

As in previous Contra games, a maximum of two players can play at the same time, although they cannot select the same character.
The controls are identical to Contra III, but have been modified to work with both the conventional three-button Genesis controller and the six-button controller. In the default control layout, the three primary buttons are utilized to swap between weapons, shoot, and leap.

Plot:

In 2641, the «Unified Military Special Mobile Task Force K-X», commonly known as the «Contra Hard Corps», was formed to counteract the fast development of crime and unlawful enterprises in the aftermath of the war. When an unknown hacker infiltrates the city's security system and reprograms a swarm of autonomous robots to wreak havoc, the Hard Corps are called in to deal with the problem. Members include Ray Poward, a male soldier; Sheena Etranzi, a female soldier; Brad Fang, a wolf-like humanoid with two bionic arms; and Browny, a tiny hovering robot. Ray, Sheena, and Brad subsequently made a brief appearance in Donburishima's interactive game TwinBee Paradise.
