New Nemesis remake

On MSX, the Nemesis saga is one of the most popular game concepts by Konami, perhaps only topped by their Metal Gear games. And not without reason: the Nemesis games (including Parodius and Salamander) were great action games with memorable music, stunning graphics for MSX1 and great gameplay. Later on in history, Space Manbow would lift up Konami's shooter concept to quality levels comparable with those from 16bit consoles from the same time. It's the old Nemesis/Gradius series however which seems to stand the test of time. Often, retro fanatics keep themselves busy with these games, and that has happened just once more!

It's called Nemesis online, by Kotai. Judging from the screenshots alone, this production looks very polished, while still not losing that magical sense of retro here and there. It's well worth checking out if you are a Nemesis fanatic!

The game plays really well. Nice graphics that gives the same feeling as the original. I think this is the best remake of an MSX game I ever played.

The game gives this really nice arcade feeling somehow. Great job!

Really cool remake! A bit difficult though. It also allows you to create an account to publish your scores online. A nice 'modern' add-on I think Smile

Very nice approach, I really liked the Diagonal Laser. Things it should improve:

  • Music. Plain midi files just won't do the right job in every synthetizer. Maybe midi music composed for the Microsoft GS Software Wavetable (built-in since Windows XP) could be the right choice, without discarding the use of digital music.
  • Loading time is too long
  • Stage selecction interface could be improved
