So, Contra: Evolution finally released a couple of weeks ago, and it’s every bit as punishingly violent as you remember. With or without The Code, if you’ve been playing since it came out, you’ve probably been killed several dozen times by now. Well, now CocoaChina (a TriplePoint client) is giving you a reason to keep killing yourself, at least: a shot at a new iPad. Would you die for an iPad? Okay, probably not, but would you let a nonexistent digital soldier die for an iPad? Probably, right?
CocoaChina is running a Contra Contest (not a Controversial Contest), where you can win an iPad, iPod touch, or some iTunes credit just for saying “iMade it past the first level.” As detailed by PocketGamer, the rules are:
2. Get a Three Medal rating in Mission Mode on Stage 1: Jungle on Normal difficulty.
3. Grab a screenshot of this achievement, and then submit it – along with a favourite Contra memory of yours (from any era) – with the #ContraEvolution hashtag to the Wall of the Contra: Evolution Facebook Page.
Voila! You’ve got until Friday to survive just one stage of the least-fair shooter-platformer in the world. Good luck, have fun, and try not to smash your current iPad in frustration while trying to win the new one!
