File Description:  Contra 83 is one of the biggest achievements in pure BASIC. It is a remake of the classic NES game Contra, and is the most advanced BASIC platform game to date. The game has so many features including: 6 creative levels, 3 enemy types, weapon upgrades, 3 difficulty settings, a top 9 high score system (with antihack protection), advanced scoring, a boss at the end of each level that grows in size and strength, very fast game play, advanced terrain including landmines and water, and of course saving/loading (The game will also include a level editor once it is finished). Contra 83 is the true meaning of BASIC. It does not use 1 ASM utility, just strictly good old home fashioned BASIC. The game uses one of the most advanced engines ever using complex numbers and equations to generate unreal looking terrain, and an AI program that will not slow even if 1000 enemies were on a screen.

Graphics/Interface: 4/10 could have been better
Playability/Usability: 2/10 it's way too hard to play
Replay Value/Reuse Value: 3/10 You dont want to play again out of shame
Controls/Interface: 7/10 controls were nice
Overall Value: 3/10 it does real contra no justice at all
This file is Way too big. you have to delete everything on your calculator in order to play it. Works great, but isn't worth the amount of stuff you have to delete. The range of fire for your guy is lacking and you can't really jump high enough to get to where you are going. It's not even worthy of being called Contra.

Graphics/Interface: 10/10 Amazing for basic
Playability/Usability: 7/10 cool parts, but poor AI
Replay Value/Reuse Value: 8/10 it is hard
Controls/Interface: 8/10 easy
Overall Value: 8/10 worth a try
This game is pretty cool. The AI has a few problems (either brain dead or cheap) and jumps are a little tricky. Otherwise, it is a lot of fun. Graphicswise, this game is AMAZING! I still don't know how it can run so fast as well. Although it doesn't really remind me of Contra that much...
