When Christmas approaches, I am always thinking of my childhood and how much more magical the holiday was back then… Often, I’d spend the days around Christmas playing NES games… And this week’s music will appropriately be from one of the games that defined my childhood. Konami’s Contra really set the standard for action games as far back as 1988. It was, of course, only via the Konami Code that the game become beatable for me… 3 lives are far from enough to survive such an epic adventure.
Contra had some really good music, too. It was common for NES games by Konami to have excellent music. My favourite Contra theme was the Waterfall stage theme, and it’s the one I’ll share with you today.
Have a very merry Christmas!
