Detailed walkthrough of the entire storyline of Contra Returns
Contra Returns is a game from the famous series that was recently released in Europe and North America for iOS and Android mobile devices.
Explore the controls. Use the buttons on the left to move, and the button with the weapon icon to shoot. Next to the standard weapon there is an additional ability and a grenade throw button. Aiming occurs automatically if you are within range of the target. Leave the location.
On the next one you will learn squatting (you need to hold down the movement buttons on the left) and jumping. Don’t forget that you can double jumps by pressing the Jump button twice. Destroy the enemy capsule and get to the boss. Hold down the fire button as your character will automatically aim at the enemy’s head. Keep to the sides. When the enemy starts shooting a laser from the head, stand in the opposite direction. If he passes with his hand, use a double jump.
After winning, you will be taken to the main menu screen. There are many interesting modes here, but we’ll focus on the storyline.
First Sight of Archipelago (1-1)
Required power : 300
Move to the right, destroying the first enemies. Don’t forget to use different skills. At the end of the path, a battle against a mini-boss awaits you. Shoot him with any weapon, and if he fits, go to a meeting. When he swings, run back or make a double jump to avoid being hit by a paw.
Warehouse Raid (1-2)
Required power : 350
Before starting this mission, you will be taught how to buy weapons and change equipment. Move in a straight line, use squats to avoid being hit by the turrets. Jump more often, throw grenades and shoot with an additional ability. At the end, you will need to reflect several enemy waves, and then the mission will end.
Mech Warrior (1-3)
Required power : 400
Upgrade your hero before starting the quest. control the mech and destroy enemies. Everything is simple enough. When an enemy mech appears, shoot at it. Blue spheres can be destroyed with ordinary weapons, and if you see simple bullets, then double jump over them.
Battle Race (1-4)
Required power : 450
Remember that jungle cannon wall in the original Contra? At the end of this quest, you will come across its modern version! Remember that you can click on the screen on the object you want to aim at if you are not happy with where your hero is shooting by default. For example, you need to click on a soldier with a weapon at the top of the wall to kill him, otherwise your hero will shoot at the wall itself. Jump on flying fire spheres. After the first stage, a laser will appear at the bottom, so don’t even go down there. Instead, stay on a high ground and fire at the guns that spit out fire orbs. If you destroy them, the task will be greatly simplified. But while they are functional, keep your finger over the jump button.
Near the Entrance (1-5)
Required power : 500
Upgrade your weapon for the first time by spending XP cards and go on a mission. This will be the first vertical level. Killing enemies, rise higher and higher. But take your time when you see the turrets. Pick an angle at which they can’t hit you. At the end there will be a flying drone. Avoid regular bullets by keeping your distance from the enemy, and don’t forget to use powerful shots.
Old Friend Again (1-6)
Required power : 600
Head upstairs to fight another iconic boss in the series. Shoot at its tentacles that release orange spheres. These spheres, by the way, can be destroyed. If you see a container flying at the top, click on it and shoot it to knock down the weapon’s enhancement. After destroying both pairs of tentacles, huge claws will appear instead. All you have to do is stick between them. If the monster moves two claws stuck in opposite edges of the screen, stay in the middle. They will stop shortly before the middle of the screen and will not hit you. If one claw moves, run to the stationary one.
Explore the Base (2-1)
Required power : 700
At this level, there will be no new enemies, and in the end you will fight with the usual walkers. Use all your weapons, shoot powerful charges and throw grenades. Switch to other goals if necessary.
Secret Door (2-2)
Required power : 800
Follow the only route avoiding falling blocks with spikes and electric beams. Jump over enemy shells. In the upper right corner of the screen there is a button to change weapons. You should have already learned how to equip your primary and secondary weapons. After moving to a new location, you will have to fight another iconic boss. Use powerful shots to destroy wall guns. Some spheres can be shot with weapons. After completing the quest, you will receive a new hero, William. Unlock it through the corresponding menu.
Zombie Fight (2-3)
Required power : 950
Step on the elevator and go down, killing enemies. If you see red vertical lasers, dodge them – a rocket is about to fly along this path. Use William’s abilities to destroy powerful enemies. Instead of a grenade, he is able to dash, ignoring any damage. It is very convenient if you need to move to the enemy behind your back. And this will be needed at the end, during the battle with a large zombie.
Daughter of Doctor (2-4)
Required power : 1100
Kill enemies using a flamethrower and fight a powerful zombie at the end. Use dash (William’s ability available at the “grenade” location) to move behind your back to the enemy if he is running towards you. When he is about to jump, a red circle appears on the floor in the landing area. Just don’t stand in it and everything will be fine.
Mystery of Zombie (2-5)
Required power : 1250
This will be the first level in which you need to protect the target. All monsters will go to the right. They are divided into 5 approximately equal waves. Stay away from the doctor and back off if you see monsters around you above or below. I do not recommend going up at all. Better to stay on the floor and shoot the enemy from here. A powerful enemy will appear at the end, but you can easily destroy him using special shots. I also recommend taking a flamethrower on a mission, which makes it easier to destroy a crowd of mutants.
Posthaste Pursuit (2-6)
Required power : 1400
Move to the right, killing enemies. Learn the use of superweapons. You can use it once per mission, but in this mission you will be allowed to do it twice. When you get to the Giant Zombie, a boss fight will begin. You can immediately use superweapons and powerful shots. When the zombie spits a stream of acid, stand at the edge of the screen and jump twice at the end. Then stay close to the enemy and shoot him. Periodically shoot down flying containers to get weapons and lives. When the zombie jumps up off the screen, it will land in the opposite corner. So you can run away in advance. However, the landing point will be marked with a red circle on the ground.
Deck Assault (3-1)
Required power : 1690
Quite a simple task. Use powerful shots against the machine gun points at the top, so you can destroy them without any problems. Explode huge and small purple spheres. Otherwise, there should be no problems. You can take on a mission a new weapon – a shotgun, just do not forget to upgrade it first
Skateboarding Intruder (3-2)

You will move around on a flying board. Jump over missiles, the flight path of which is shown by red lines. Also try to destroy small red and yellow drones as soon as possible. The former will try to bump into you, and the latter will shoot at you. At the end, a huge enemy will appear. As soon as he begins to scatter projectiles, gradually move away from him to the left area of the screen. This will avoid getting hit.
Into the Hull (3-3)
Required power : 2288
A simple task in which you have to jump a little and finally destroy two purple spheres. Try to jump over flying projectiles, and in the case of turrets, dash so that you are behind them. So they won’t harm you at all!
Devil’s Flame (3-4)
Required power : 2596
Pass the level, destroying enemies, but I do not recommend taking weapons with the letter C. It fires rockets, but has too long reload time. A mechanical spider will appear at the end. Get close to him and use your superweapon. Then use powerful shots and gradually back away to avoid the missiles falling in an arc. It’s that simple!
Loose Lips Sink Ships (3-5)
Required power : 2904
There will be no bosses or mini-bosses in this mission. Instead, you will be faced with streams of fire. Wait for the fire to stop and follow along. In one of the places you need to go down the ledges. To do this, hold the stick down and press the jump. Try to go behind the enemies behind the turrets. It will be easier to kill them, moreover, and they will not be able to oppose anything to you.

In this task, you will slide on a snowboard in the snow. When killing enemies, do not forget to jump over snowballs in time. Also, avoid the red rays that indicate the trajectory of the missiles. In the end, you will have to destroy the familiar flying drone, but there should be no problems.

Follow through the location where the machine gun will drop for the first time (M). When destroying enemies, use different abilities.
