Author's comments and explanations:
This is my 3rd attempt at a non-violent contra run.

this version is much more entertaining than my last version and manages to be 52 seconds faster, but somehow has 100 less re-records.

just like before, no monsters except for bosses, mini-bosses, and inescapable barriers are killed and only R power-ups are gotten.

When you watch, you might notice that i will aim at the ground or in the air for a few seconds when enemys are on screen. This is because that enemy actions are affected by the direction that you are aiming in. This isnt very important for a normal contra time attack, but for this special type, it helps a ton.

Note: i would like to cancel my 11:31 non-violent contra run submission for obvious reasons.


Bisqwit: Many of your few shots missed their target (especially in the second and third bosses), even though you used a weapon that doesn't require "warm up" to work. I'm sure you can fix this.
Bisqwit Marking this movie as "cancelled" in favor of author's improved version.
