Time slows down drastically when not moving, use that strategically against the enemy.

I had plans to make more levels but I ran out of time (no surprises there). Hopefully I can make more in the near future.

Any feedback is appreciated.

Pretty good, but if it's CONTRA ... where are the bad guy soldiers and hovercrates with power-ups ?

Neat idea, but the enemy spam really hurts this. Gives me flashbacks of mario maker

Love the style.

Very well done and fun to play!

Main gripe is on on the control scheme - something like not able to switch gun direction fast enough (I admit, it has been many years since I last played Contra on Amstrad :) )

@All thanks for the feedback, guys!

@dw817: I wanted to keep the main mechanic simple (single-weapon, use bullet-time effectively), but maybe in the future I could expand on the concept.

@first151: I tried to add a lot of enemies to encourage using bullet-time while still keeping them one-hit-kills. I might tune this a bit in the future though.

@freds72: Thanks. I agree the slow aiming takes a bit getting used to, but I really wanted to have more than 8-way shooting. The idea is taken from the arcade version of Super Contra.

The bullet time mechanic is a nice idea, though the controls do take some getting used to, but once it clicks, you do find a rhythm. Anyway, I did a video about this here:

The enemy spam is a bit of a mess but its one hell of a good game!

Bloody good fun! Fast paced shooter with easy controls and a little twist every now and then!

Woah! Not going to lie, first attempt I hated this but I didn't actually realise you could move the gun and turn around. After reading this page and going back for another go, I loved it!!! Please add more if you can.
