Konami developed and published this game (Contra) in the late 80’s. It was a Run and Gun game.

In Contra, the player controlled one of two armed military commandos named Bill “Mad Dog” Rizer and Lance “Scorpion” Bean, who are sent on a mission to neutralize a terrorist group called the Red Falcon Organization that is planning to take over the Earth.

It was a very good game in that time, specially if you played in cooperative mood ( for two players ) in an arcade environment.
