I can remember the release of Contra in 1987. After pushing the cartridge into the system and turning it on, my mind was immediately blown away by one of the coolest video game title screens of all time. Armed with huge guns and tight abs; two soldiers, Bill and Lance, take on an enemy force known as Red Falcon.

I played the game's gun-and-run marathon time and time again. We were monsters -- unstoppable war machines with precision accuracy, but as time went on I found myself asking, "How would it be on the other end of the gun? Would you run for your life or carry on the fight?"

I would have run screaming the moment I saw a machine gun triple front flip.

Without further ado, I present you with an animation depicting the events of level one from the Red Falcon's point of view. It took some time to make due to what little experience we all had with the animation software, but we finally got it put together. So watch and enjoy. Have to reload it twice because the background was to small. Sorry about that.

I enjoyed it

I don't know what it is but something about your animation just made me laugh.
Its not that it as amateur, just that it was so fluid and lifelike, especially during the end.
I enjoyed the Egoraptor references especially the "I CAN'T FIT IN THERE ITS TOO SMALL!" just reminded me of every old-school comedy.

Keep it up, I can really see you guys getting better.

Interesting...

Good concepts at play, entertaining untilthe sound effects get annoying.
I have to agree with the, the progressive drawing skills is quite apparent especially after the bridge. I have to be honest, the sound effects are super annoying, and i would have liked to see some sort of plot line, or audible words. For these reason and the marginal detail. i think a 6 is deserving score.

As BadMunkey said

The animation seemed to get better as it went on, it got more fluent, and at times it looked a bit like you had animated over some video fotage. Not very detailed animating, but awesome fluency, at the end atleast :)
