Thanks for viewing and please like the video if you enjoyed it. Subscribe to see more content as we hope to have many more to come over the days/weeks.

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 1 – Cell Stage. You begin by capturing power ups and eventually moving into the main area. You will face a few types of enemies that fly at you as well as some on the ground above and below you. Missiles and some well places shots will get you through. Further in the stage it breaks into to parts a top and bottom. After traversing this area you will come to the end of the stage and the boss fight with the Pink Brain. Avoiding its arms and plowing shots into its exposed eye will eventually take it down and on to Stage 2.

Mini Review
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.
