About the movie

This is a pacifist version of the Game Boy version of Contra: The Alien Wars. Well, there are some enemies which could not be avoided to kill, but I didn't kill them intentionally! Don't you believe me? Look, I didn't even use a weapon to do that. I just accidentally stepped on a couple of them, accidentally made one fall into abyss, accidentally enabled some landmines... Some even exploded by themselves. What fault do I have? :)

Tricks used

For more details, refer to my previous submission for the same game.

Memory: Judging
Memory: Setting to delayed pending improvement.
ThunderAxe31: File replaced with a 30 frames improvement.
Memory: Resuming judgment.
Memory: Optimization appears good, no noticeable mistakes.
The goal of pacifist is far from uncommon for Contra games and it appears to still be received well here, though there wasn't exactly a lot of feedback. People seemed to still be ok with the enemies that self-destructed in some way as well and I think that is acceptable within a pacifist definition.
Accepting to Moons as a new branch.
feos: Pub.
