I think both the original Contra and Super C are two of the best games ever made for the nes / famicom. Unfortunately I find both of these games are way too difficult. The solution? I decided to sit down and see how easy they are to romhack. I managed to fairly easily hack Super C so you start the game with the spread shot gun and also so you start with the spread shot gun after you die. Finally the game is playable!
Enjoy good people:
