Another Konami classic!! Life Force aka Salamander was released on the NES in North America in 1988. It was another in a long line of hits for Konami and one of my childhood favorites.
This video will feature Stage 3 the Prominence Stage. This stage is tough with many, many places to quickly kill you. Flame bursts will come from the top and bottom of the stage and kill you. The enemies will try to maneuver you into areas where you will have no choice bit collide with something. Dragon enemies will come after you and chase you as well. The end of the stage is well earned and you fight a huge dragon head as the boss. The dragon isnt too tough and some good timing and sticking and moving will bring it to its end. On to the 4th stage.
I still think this game is good. I loved this and Gradius (and most everything Konami came out with) for their fast paced gameplay, great graphics, fun score, etc. These games fit in nicely with your collection and I still enjoy playing them. They are certainly worth another play through on your hacked NES Classic or your favorite emulator.
