Complex Says: Out of all the stages in Contra, the Waterfall theme was probably the most balanced. Even if it was 1 am at a friend’s sleepover and we were tired as hell, this music kept us moving through our 5th playthrough of the night. Only problem was that the music kept urging you to move up the level faster and faster, which killed your partner if he got left behind. Of course, he would just later steal one of your lives – i.e., pixilated karma.
