Salamander is Konami megaROM with a SCC. It is a shoot 'em up like Nemesis, though it is very tough. It also has some adventure like features, making it more than just a shoot 'em up. Excellent game, it's one of my favourites.

Opinions

...and they say Mortal Combat makes you agressive. This game makes you want to throw your computer out of the window. But don't we all like a challenge? Salamander is has the most advanced gameplay of all Nemesis games. It's the only one with a dual play mode, allows 4 options (in one player mode), and has birdsview stages. (that's vertical scrolling.) This is an extremly difficult game. In dual play mode 2 well trained pilots might have a change...

Story

"I am Van landroth Frehley, head of the Imperial Space Archaeology Institute on the planet Nemesis. Our home planet, Latis, is in the grip of a terrible danger.

The planet latis, where life first began 120 million years ago, is located in the middle of the Telsa galaxy. Surrounding Latis are four other planets called Eioneus, Lavina, Kierke and Odysseus. These are called the Latis planets.

These planets are the stars of civilisation, and their history has taken shape together with the prosperity of the second or modern Latis civilisation. The first civilisation was ancient Latis, which flourished around 100 million years ago. The Ancient Latis people who built this civilisation were masters of a form of psycho-power known as the 'crush below power', something which was beyond our imagination.

They used this power to prosphesy the future. It is said that they could see more than 100 million years into the future, and they what they prophesied was the destruction of their descendants. In other words, us.

They inscribed all that they prophesied on metal and stone tablets, which have become known as 'The Prediction'. So far only the preface and the first chapter have been found. My personal theory is that the other are hidden in underground ruins on the other planets.
