Gradius/Life Force question.
I thought Gradius
1 in the U.S. was called Life Force
. However, I just picked up a copy of Gradius
1 for the NES called......Gradius
. Is there anyone who can sort this out? Thanks in advance.
This might help some, but I'm sure there are better sites on the topic. This was my first search:
I believe the 'Gradius
' series originally stemmed from Konami's earlier 'Nemesis' series of shooters.
There were three 'Nemesis' games (that I know of) and currently five 'Gradius
' games (I think).
' is a port of 'Salamander', which are both hybrids of 'Gradius
Somehow 'Life Force
' is also the first game in the 'Thunder Force' series.
There is also a 'Gradius
/Nemesis' spin-off series of shooters called 'Parodius'.
And of course, I base all of this information on purely nothing.
Oh well, I found a website but haven't bothered to read it yet.
