Hi all,

The 3 hardest space shoot in my opinion are,

1) Salamander (If you die in Lavinia.....restart and play again)
2) KnightMare (Not a space shoot but is the same style - This game could be ended only with 99 lives - Anyone remember the secret for 99 lives ?)
3) Zanac Ex (Difficult but not impossible);

Hard shoot em up's. I always found Salamder very difficult, until of course I cheated using Games Master Smile I wrote a review of Salamder back in 1987 for a MSX magazine called MSX TECH.

1. Salamander
2. Nemesis 3
3. Nemesis 2 (although with QBert it is an easy game! finished it with the help of Qbert Smile )

Well, my first MSX game ever was a quite difficult shoot'em-up: SPACE BUSTERS, from Aackosoft (or was it Bytebusters?). Lovely tune, lovely graphics, a well done SPACE INVADERS rip-off. I prefer it to the official TAITO's conversion for MSX.

Sure?... I always thought I made the game too easy... try to play with autofire, anyway.

For me, Andorogynus and Famicle Parodic (1) are really hard to beat.

Well, lv1 is playable, but the end of lv2, it's definately a hell! Now I admit I'm not a die-hard player, if it comes to that Wink. Nevertheless, I've tried my best Wink

If you get stuck in stage 2, be prepared for next levels! Wink
As I told you the use of autofire it's very recommended.

By the way, have you ever played with the hidden spaceship??... press "V" on the selection screen. Wink

Smile Nice one! Will try it when I've got some spare time...

And it also seems that the game isn't working correctly on an European (expanded) MSX2+. That is, the title screen looks somewhat weird, as for that white block in the middle. Perhaps you use direct codes from the JIS ROMs? The European lacks them, you know Wink. My A1ST displays the game perfectly Smile
