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.

Old good games made sense...

Two badass Rambos armed with guns in classic arcade style vs whole army...
That brings a tear to my eye. Besides, this is a perfect parody of Contra, nothing more nothing less. I still wonder what their backpacks were for.
Animation is good and smooth. I'm not a good drawer myself, what really is worth is a good idea. You certainly met the requirements for that :D

Glad you like it. This one I can even laugh at still . It was fun to make all the way through. Hope you'll stick around for part 2 when we get that going.

Absolutely crazy!

I don't know...I don't think the animation is ugly. I'm glad to see such smooth frame by frame in a Flash cartoon instead of marionette tweening. The creepy, Jac Mac & Rad Boy effect makes it worth it.

This was a odd project with rotoscoping. Like how the motion with that style works. When the second one gets made it'll also be in rotoscope so it keeps its feel, hopefully look a little cleaner too.Thanks for watching.

rambojoe responds:

I know. Also where do they carry all that ammo without a gear vest or something. Wish they had shirts. Don't like drawing muscle people. I suck at it.

This brought back great memories of playing it with my dad when I was a kid. Priceless, I love this one.


rambojoe responds:

Yeah, Contra is such a awesome game. Sort wish they remake it in a 3d accept of the first game. Just for nostalgic reasons alone. Thanks for watching and the review
