Contra Style Windows 8 Game: Star Wars Rebels

Star Wars Rebels: Recon Missions is a free Contra style game for Windows 8 and 8.1 devices. The reason why I say that it’s a Contra style game is because of the fact that the game is engineered to work in a 2D environment and there is a lot of shooting and fighting involved as well. Now there are a few elements in the game as well which differ a lot from Contra, the biggest one being the futuristic graphics, and a game size of over 600 Mb (you might want to give it a pass on limited data connections). The game has certain 3D elements as well which makes for a great twist to the game.

Star Wars Rebels: Recon Missions is available for free from the Windows App Store.
