This game, ostensibly a spin-off of the Contra series, began life as a completely unrelated game, yet still manages to invoke the spirit of the other games in being an insanely difficult, one-hit-kills-you shooter.

Contra Force offers a selection of one of four characters, a jumping glitch involving the pause screen, and lots and lots of lag - and yet the game is still completed remarkably quickly.

xipo improves the previous TAS by 2 minutes and 27.62 seconds, thanks to better lag reduction, new glitches and better optimisation.

Please read the welcome page if you haven't already done so. It explains the rules and methods that apply to all of these movies, particularly the use of savestates and frame advance. Also refer to our Glossary to understand terms we use, such as TAS or other unfamiliar terms.

Webmasters, please don't link directly to the files. Link to this page or the front page instead.
