@Low Profile: you do know that the power ups you get differ for the ship you select at the beginning? There is a ship with an uplaser and napalm missiles for instance (third ship). Some ships have sucky upgrades like the fireblaster. That range is just too short for some bosses...

@Randam: I think you're talking about Nemesis 3? Nemesis 2 doesn't have a ship select at the beginning Wink

NP Smile ... With Nemesis 3 I always chose the ship with photon missiles (upper right one)
(The upgrade Fireblaster is idd horrible)

@flyguille: And don't forget about combination with Nemesis 2 cartridge to get extra mission and finish with good ending.

We finished it without cheating by playing with 2 people in one player mode. One of them was pressing [STOP] key constantly so we can react to what is going on on the screen. It took us 2 days. Especially hard level when the light goes off.

But this is the best game IMHO from the Nemesis saga.

PS: We used same technique to finish Uridium 2 for Amiga.

Regardless of my utter and deep respect for Konami, I always found this a cynical move and extremely disrespectful to the people that'd buy a game of theirs, anyway. You can say "THANK YOU FOR PLAYING" all you want after the staffscroll, but it's just not right. Konami MSX ROMs cost a fortune back then.

That is true. Smile But we pay for the artistry and quality that lies within it (apart from the rarity). Requiring an earlier game to get the proper ending to an installment that followed is in my eyes a big "#@%$ you".
