This is a 2D shooting game.

Mechanics UI Graphics
Pretty good game, basically anything you can say about contra you can say about this, the level design is a bit minimalistic but it works,
the graphics altogether are decent, the way the characters are pixel art but the background isn't does look a bit strange but its still ok, but in all honesty the ui is very obnoxious, everything up until you start the level is honestly really bad, and it doesnt reflect on how well the actual game runs, the use of the rifle bullet for only the right arrow is confusing, and the weapon select could be a bit more obvious for people who arent familiar with the actual game, its programmed suprisingly well, like i said before the ui made me think the game was going to run horribly but it was very easy to control and there wasnt any lag or anything, but past being well made, it is literally just contra, and to be honest, there isnt that many original content or ideas in this game, that would make me want to play it over the original contra, which not only looks better but has better level design.
Overall, i couldnt really tell if you were trying to port contra to android, trying to make a small project to test yourself, or trying to make an actual game independent of the real contra, so ill give you this, as a port of contra to android, this game is a 6/10 to me, because it lacks out on basically all of the original content from contra, but as its own game? its closer to a 3/10, because its effectively a (well made) copy of contra without most of the good content.

Thank you for this expert analysis that you provided! It is clear from your username that you are also interested in chess! My next game is supposed to be chess! My Chess will be very different from any other chess software.

But about this game!
I actually aimed to make a game with a different story than Contra. Maybe it would have been better to name it something else! But because I was using ready-made game assets, I couldn't call it anything other than Contra when I used its graphics!

I did not pay much attention to the details of the user interface! But because there are few buttons and the type of bullets can be seen at the same moment of selection, it is not very important!

In this game, for the first time, I made in-app purchases using digital currencies, which is unique in this field!

I hope there was no miscommunication, it is clear you are a very skilled programmer and the game was quite good, its possible I judged it harshly for using the contra graphics, I look forward to your next project!

Thank you!
You will see my programming power in the chess project!
Of course, I also try to improve in graphic design.
