I was wondering about an alternative ending of this game, since a nuclear explosion doesn't seem a happy ending.
So I disassembled the game and found that there is no alternative ending Sad

But I found that there are some text screens inserted in the ending, only shown if you run the game on a japanese MSX. They explain the nuclear explosion, and show the game staff. This is the translation of those screens (credits of translation goes for Gunkan):

"Afterwards, when I was investigating the materials about Ushas that
the Assistant Professor Atley had newly found, it was made clear that
the statue of Ushas was a nuclear bomb fuse that the ancient
civilization had developed.
It's switch was the jewel, and to prevent from using it, it is said that
the jewel was split into four pieces, and were scattered
amoung many places and sealed"

It's not supposed to be funny, it's called irony.
Ofcourse, some people think irony is funny, but that's their problem Tongue

It is irony, or a strange sense of humor.
From Usas intro:
"If they find 4 pcs of precious stone, some good thing will happen."

hi i'm newbbio here.

last time i played usas i was about 5 years old and it was before my brother type format a: so until today i'd never played usa again so... there is question (maybe i shouldn't ask here but i'm totally lost) when spirits touch you, then you lose vit how to increase vit?
thanks, and thanks Evil i wanted discovering the ending by myself but now... well, maybe i'll never be able to reach te end. Thanks Wink

Collect the coins, and use them during game-pause (F1 key) to increasi VIT, Speed and Jump parameters.
good luck
