Thanks everyone for the kind comments. Although I do not make any money from these fun re-masterings of classic games you can show your appriciation by donating to my HeartWalk page to help raise money to reduce death and disability from cardiovascular diseases. My goal is to raise $395 by September 7th.

For this project I decided to start with the 8-bit Nintendo game Contra and up the resolution to 9600x5400 pixels.

The Nintendo game Contra was one of the more popular NES games about some guys who looked like Rambo trying to defeat some aliens on an island. Or at least that is what I think it was about.

I tried to match the style of the game as close as possible, but took some creative liberties where I thought it really needed it.

I figured the Level 6 boss, who I think is a robot, would be the coolest looking boss. The last boss is a giant heart and that seems too easy. The other bosses are not really characters.

The songs in this video are from the games Gears of War (Hope Runs Deep) and Bulletstorm (Battle High). There is also a bit of music from Riptide (They Came From the Blue).

Each frame in this video represents 10 seconds of work. The image spans across 3 PSD files with over 500 layers at a resolution of 9600x5400 pixels. The project took 25 hours to complete over the course of 6 days.
