Only to conclude I had to play the whole darn game again just b'coz I didn't have Nemesis II in slot 2! (alternative ending)... sight. ah, well it made me the alltime-super-dooper-salamander-trooper in that time. (like yeeeeears ago)

Yeah, though the 'bad' ending had the cooler enddemo and music Smile but the special stage was fun to play though.

The key with salamander was get your ship boosted in the first level and you won't die in the later ones Smile (you could even do the option-hold trix0r in the first stage, which gave you option hold for an unlimited amount of time to make it easier) Smile

I finished all big-name shooters I guess, though I finished Laydock only in 2 player mode (that killer-shield comes in handy) ^_^

Nice games, but way too easy... Except for the Boss monster of lv. 5 of gradius 4. That one's a HELL! Smile

Another not so common but very good (and hard!) shump is ADONIS.

I remember when I got the hang of it, managed to reach level 2 iirc, and at one point the game froze! Reached this point for a second time and froze again! Sad

Recently I tried using an emulator hoping that my copy was bad, but nope, the damn game always freezes at this point!

Sorry about the off-topic, but does anyone know why does this happen? unfinished game maybe???
