Controls:

  • arrow keys: movement
  • z: jumping
  • x: shooting

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

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!
