Salamander is a classic horizontal shoot'em up for the Commodore 64 -  100% genuine original release from late 80's.


About this game:

In the Latiy system, a solar system in a faraway galaxy, an old civilization at the age of millions of years exits which has developed the ability to look into the future. Unfortunately, the future for this race does not look good, because they see the total destruction of the system. A huge fleet of another race, the so-called "Salamander" is on its way. So a spaceship is sent out with the mission to scout the fleet and you are its pilot….

It all starts in level 1, a horizontally scrolling vault inside an asteroid, in which hostile forces have entrenched themselves and attack formations of ships. By completely destroying complete formations you can collect some extras that improve your ship or raise the speed. At the end a huge brain type alien waits for you and blocks the entrance to the next level.


Level 2. This level, scrolling vertically from top to bottom, takes place in free space and comes up with innumerable throngs of spaceships and indestructible meteorites. At the end of the level, a massive spider-like, revolving spaceship waits for you which has only one weak point: The entrance on the lower side is secured with wooden-type boards that can be shot through.


Level 3 scrolls horizontally again and consists mainly of a red-hot boiling lava corridor where fountains scale off from ground and ceiling. Furthermore, the eponym of the game can be found here, the huge snake going in random circles, whose weak point is the rather ugly head.


Level 4, the last level scrolls vertically again, over technical premises. After two intermediate medium-rare bosses and a very well secured zone you finally reach the super-mega bomb that is intended for the solar system of the Latiy. You need to destroy all four supports to trigger it and with this destroy the real hostile fleet with their own weapons.
