Episode 82: Contra / Little Nemo: The Dream Master

Gary Butterfield and Kole Ross dream up a podcast about Contra and Little Nemo: The Dream Master.

This is what it's like when worlds collide: A single episode dedicated to the top players of the golden age of platformers, Konami and Capcom.

On side one, we've got Konami representing with Contra, an infamously tough and precise run 'n' gun platformer that spawned a whole series (and countless speed run videos).

On side two, Little Nemo: The Dream Master from Capcom steps in as a dark horse. Emphasizing exploration, experimentation, and whimsy, it's emblematic of Capcom's approach to platformers at the time.

Who will win? Well, no one. It's not a competition.
