I recently watched a longplay of this game on youtube and was surprised how well they did for the technology when compared to the SNES version. Looking forward to playing more contra!

That's interesting how the unlicensed versions are ported on to an older system.

Is not protected against the code to skip levels, at least "real veteran" and "Only the basics" triggered using the code.

Surprised the achievements for lower difficulties aren't included with the same achievement for higher difficulties. Oh well, Normal and Hard runs are now on the to-do list.

"Prepared for the War": only Hard difficulty. Isn't possible gain lives in Maniac difficulty, even If maxed score to 999.999.
