North American box art.

Operation C is a scrolling platform run-and-gun developed by Konami and published by Ultra for the Game Boy and released on 1991-01-08. The game is the third title in the Contra series and acts as a sequel to Super C. In this game, a new alien called "Black Viper" is trying to take over Earth where the Red Falcon failed.

I never played this game when it was popular. Instead, I saw it on a list of the best Game Boy games and played it in an emulator.


I do not own the game, but I beat it on 2017-08-03.


  • Overall: 5/10
  • Best Version: Game Boy

— This section contains spoilers! —


  • The game has decent graphics and sound.
  • There is a good amount of variety among the enemies, bosses, and level design.
  • In the brief time you have, the game presents a tough challenge, even for someone skilled in Contra games.
  • I really like the new homing gun, and was pleased that they dropped the laser gun.


  • With only 5 levels, the game is pretty short.
  • Some of the music is reused from the NES games without even attempting to remix it.
  • The final boss (after defeating the guardian) is extremely dull.
  • The Japanese and European releases didn't give the game a new title.


  • Nothing.
