It turns out that when a kid on a bicycle goes up against a dude with a tank, the outcome is just what you’d expect. Go figure.
When it comes to classic Nintendo games, there are few that are more iconic than Atari’s Paperboy and Konami’s Contra. But what would happen if the two main characters of these games met up in a head-to-head battle/performance competition? Spoiler alert: Things don’t end well for the paperboy.
“Contra vs Paperboy” is a new video that was created by Dane Boedigheimer as part of his ongoing “Video Game Mashups” series of videos. Other creations have included short movies combining Mortal Kombat and Donkey Kong, Contra and Duck Hunt, and Grand Theft Auto and Frogger.
If Boedigheimer’s name sounds familiar, there’s a reason for that: He’s the guy who makes the Annoying Orange videos on YouTube. If you like these mash-up videos, drop Boedigheimer a note, as he’s looking for suggestions about what games he should combine next.
