Konami is a Japanese vide game company who made various classics like Castlevania and Winning Eleven. It also manufactured under two other names, Ultra Games and Palcom Software, as Disney had manufactured some films under the name of Touchstone to appeal to a more mature audience. However, Konami's guise of Ultra Games and Palcom Software was to circumvent Nintendo policy that a certain number of games can be released for the NES per year by their subcontractors. Metal Gear and the NES port of Defender of the Crown were produced by Ultra Games. Overall, the Nerd has had a somewhat positive impression of Konami, citing the gameplay to be fairly tough, but fun. He also cites decent graphics and sound.
