Set as a
direct sequel to Contra: Hard Corps, this game also has four different playable
characters, each with their special set of weapons. Colonel Bassad, a dictator
of a small country, has become a threat and is amassing an army of soldiers,
robots, and alien mutants. Ray Poward is deployed to thwart Bassad's scheme
along with three of the newest members of the Hard Corps team: Tasha, a female
mercenary; CD-288, a robot; and Bubba, an alien. With his new team, stop Colonel Bassad and
destroy the alien menace.
