If you're over 30 like the rest of us on this earth then you probably have some days where you miss playing Contra. You know, that game that had the iconic up, up, down, down, left, right, left, right code that gave you 30 lives and inspired all the other secret codes in video games. Anyways, there's a new game coming out on Steam Early Access called "Mercenary Kings" and it kinda reminds me of Contra only that the characters look more like Scott Pilgrim. Maybe because the artists are the same guys that worked on the Scott Pilgrim game. It's an old school platformer that lets you destroy your enemies with different weapons so you can enjoy it anyway you like. You can go ahead and watch the trailer after the break if you have nothing better to do.
