Official description

The vaunted CONTRA series finally makes its way to the Sega Genesis with CONTRA: Hard Corps. Picking up five years after the first game ended, the world is under attack by an army of biogenetic experiments gone bad, and it's your duty to put things right and wipe out the mutant armada. Playing as one of four gun-toting warriors, you'll be confronted with 10 grueling levels of scum-blasting action as you try to save the planet. Take advantage of the high-powered weapons at your disposal, like the homing gun, crush gun, needle laser, and mine setter, to deal out the damage. As the game progresses, you'll face many boss characters and choices, which will affect the game's ending, should you get that far.

Genesis version of Contra. You can play as 4 different characters, all of whom have their special weapons. You can also slide in this game.

Additional info:
This game was called Contra Hard Corps in USA and Japan, but its name was changed to Probotector in Europe (as most Contra titles were). The characters were also changed into robots and certain sequences and gfx was censored/edited (apperantly, the original was too violent for the german audience).
The japanese version is also much easier (you get an unlimited number of credits and more health). There are more differences, but nothing too severe.
