Salamander 2 takes place after Gradius IV and before Gradius Gaiden.


This game has both horizontal and vertical scrolling style levels. Some levels take place in space, other take place inside an organism. As your pick up more power-ups, your ship becomes more and more powerful. The main items to pick up are weapon upgrades, options, and force shields.

How to Play

Like the original Salamander, and as opposed to the Life Force releases, Salamander 2 abandons the selection-bar based power-up system, in favor of a simplified system that focuses on powering weapons up based on specific icons.
