Contra: Hard Corps is the only game of the Contra series released on the Genesis / Mega Drive console. In this game, you get to choose between four characters, each with different abilities and weapons.

This game has four completely different final stages, each with a different ending, depending on the choices you make earlier.

The Japanese version was chosen because, for some reason, it gives the players a health bar, allowing them to take some damage without dying.

Fang is used due to a glitch that allows him to deliver fully charged D weapon shots, without taking time to charge it.

This speedrun is 263frames faster than adelikat’s!!! The place mainly saved time was the doctor boss in stage 5. I used the D shoot 5 times, once more than adelikat’s. And I was at the right not left. So boss turned the third action straightly. Saved about 5 seconds. Other place I saved the time is in stage 4, before the big boss, there was a door. I used down+C once less than adelikat’s. Saved some time.

However, I wasted some time in some places. Such as the big boss in stage 1. I did the same as adelikat’s. But I was slower than his 2 frames. I don’t know why. So these places was a pity…

That’s all.

feos: Added YouTube module
Truncated: Dibs!
mmarks: Replaced YouTube module (for module HD)
Truncated: This was a nice watch. I was a bit afraid in the beginning that the playarounds were going to consist of switching weapons really really fast, but it got better. Accepted!
Mister Epic: Waiting for FerretFaucet's mmarks's encode...
