Nemesis (video game)
|Genre(s)||Horizontal scrolling shooter|
Nemesis (ネメシス, Nemeshisu) is a 1990 shoot 'em up video game developed and published by Konami for the Game Boy. It is part of the Gradius series. Similar to Taito's Sagaia, this game uses a once-international title for an earlier game in the series to represent a mostly original project.
Nemesis retains the basic power-up meter commonly used in most Gradius games, but with the addition of multi-level missiles not present in the original Gradius.
The game consists of only five stages, each with a unique core boss. Although it is also possible to access hidden bonus stages in which the player may collect 1-ups and score bonus cells. Like other Game Boy titles developed by Konami, the game presents the player with a stage selection screen before starting.
