Impressive! Never got past level 3 iirc, and that's with the shield! Tongue

Indeed, I believe level 4 was my record so this is quite impressive.

On rewatching this game the quality of what it achieves on MSX1 with pattern sprites is interesting by the way.

Awesome! I'm the same as Sonic, I never got past level 3 even using shield; after a while the damned missiles were after me I was smashed down.

Your videos remember me about Firehawk also. I was so happy when Rieks released the translation, I was finally able to understand the story, the ending is just great and unexpected. I uploaded the english intro video here. The translation is well worth the price and every Thexder/Firehawk fan should have it.

Thexder is much more a memory game. Rules are simple:

- Know which enemies raise Energy and Energy Max.
- Know where secret items are.
- Try to finish the stages as quick as possible, or else the damned missiles will come and then it's GAME OVER.

Looking at it now; pretty cool!
But why do you leave so many enemies unharmed in level 3? Is it because of time?
Also, could you add the videos to a playlist? Makes it easier to watch them all Smile

@ FiXato - There are three Geishas in level 3 that give me a fair amount of Energy and Energy Max. However, if I destroy many enemies in level 3, I won't be able to reach the geishas and exit the level without running out of time (loads of homing missiles!). So I prefer to run as fast as I can, only destroying enemies that give me energy or energy max.

And about the playlist, here it is. Smile
