Contra Rampage

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 loved it too violent

Glad you enjoyed the violent chaos. The second part should be better then this. When it comes out... To much to do.

i cant explain why this is so great

its really just a fun time for everyone, because i likewise feel the same way xD


I'm curious though, more or less half way in, did you animate using real human movement painted over by the animation? It looks badass.

Yes it was rotoscope. I got a new program half way through the animation and decided to give it a try. Really not sure if its what I like, since its more like tracing then drawing.


i don't really give a shit about contra either way, but this is my favorite forever
