Basic Saga Salamander "Meisou No Paora"
Advanced Saga Salamander "Gofer No Yabou"
The clip here is from the 3rd part and contains quite a lot of familiar elements for those who have played any Salamander or Gradius/Nemesis games. Click on the video cassette to download the clip (divx,21MB).
Computers make excellent and efficient servants, but I have no wish to

man. And nothing can replace it or him. -- Spock, "The Ultimate Computer", stardate 4729.4
