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 time I do the “perfect ending” run. I called this ending “perfect ending”, it’s for some reason. In this route, I found the headquarters. And this is the only route that with no innocent victims. And finally, I get the “good job!”. So I called it this.

In this run, I use Fang, too. The reason is that his D shoot is the strongest weapon.

In stage 2, (lab) I firstly run on the ground. But I found that if I run on the floor, I would save some time. Because when I fell down from the floor. My rate could faster than Down+C on the floor. So I tried this way. The truth is so. I saved about 50 frames!

In stage 6, (boat) the 2nd boss, which is under the water. I took the damage to save time. I went down the boat into water, used D shoot to fight with boss. I use D shoot 2 times. And I took damage 1 time.

In part 1 of stage 7, (In headquarters) I used the same way, such as stage 2. I went on the floor. Saved about 10 fames.

In part 2 of stage 7, (On the rocket) after I beat over Deadeye Joe. I did the beautiful dance! I like it very much!!!

Finally, I beat over the final boss. And I got the “Good Job!”

That’s all.
