this is one of my favorite nes games, as far as pattern recognition it's not really that difficult a game. i play through it maybe twice a year or so to hear the music again.

the story is that a laser cannon on pluto that was designed to protect the solar system from hostile aliens has gone haywire and is systematically destroying all the other planets. and earth is next :O and you pilot the m308-gunner the ultimate robot or whatever etc

it's really fantastic i recommend it often

I want to thank you guys so much for this. It's nice to see this game get more recognition, and it's just a shame that it didn't get the recognition it deserved.

You DO know, however, that after beating the game you can get a special password that allows you to play the game again on an INSANE DIFFICULTY?

unfortunately the 'game for experts' is just stupidly impossible. you get to lvl2 and those electric barricades or whatever that move in to crush you react twice as fast, so you have to get the armor and take a hit goin up the first five, then pull off this perfect maneuver jumping the right height to set it off, then when its pulling back jump down and jump again doing a gravityflip the instant youre high enough to clear the platform.

i spent like 2h to pull that off and got killed right after by some stray bullet and blarg

At first I thought I had played this but it appears I have mistaken it for a similar SNES mecha robot game that also has Metal in the title. That had a killer 2 player Vs mode.

I always hated singl hit deaths, especially damage for touching enemies. I'm looking at you, Contra...
