It's impossible to finish in co-op. There's a bug that prevents the second player from moving on a certain level.

Hard but not as hard as I thought it would be. I think the Original Contra is harder.

That is false I have seen people do it live on twitch.com before.

I used a Game Genie back in the NES days and that was the only way I could beat it. And just to let you know there is no way to beat the game on two players. One level I dont remember much but you had to ride a vehicle and because of a bug in the game it is impossible for two players to finish the level.

It's the second-to-last level that has the bug.
I've seen my friend finish Contra no problem (after I assume he practiced a lot). It doesn't look like it required NEARLY the amount of pixel-precision Battletoads clearly demands.

It's believable that playing two-player makes the game even harder (regardless of the bug) unless both players are good at the game, because of the unfair Game Over system.

If you can get your hands on the Japanese version it's supposed to be quite a bit easier. And I believe the two player bug was fixed in that version as well.

Maybe that's why that version has jumped in price lately. One site I know used to sell that game for like $12, now they bumped it up to $88 (cart-only!). Should've bought it.
(oh well, at least I got games from them like Moai-kun and Holy Diver before they spiked.)
