This continues until someone dies or gets enough of a point lead. As the Amazon battles her way across the landscape, she will encounter deadly ponds. Chances are, that since you are here, you must have either played or are going to play this game. It's quite satisfying and rather amusing to position a pond between the Amazon and her pursuers, and watch as multiple enemies willingly plunge to their deaths in the murky depths. It would be bad enough if they were simply indestructible which they are.
Initially, the Amazon is able to take two hits from an enemy before being defeated. The good news is that the webs disappear after a few seconds, allowing you to resume your normal speed and maneuverability. The enemy attack formations especially the bees and the upright wheels are very reminiscent of similar enemy attacks in Terra Cresta, as are the power ups, graphic fonts, and the background music, which at times sounds like a remix of Terra Cresta's theme. Now, if either of these enemy groups are meant to represent cannibals, I just don't see it. But it never dawned on me that it was the sequel to Moon Cresta until only recently from the internet Crazy Climber.
It was quickly localized and released for North America in April 1990, marking the first time western gamers experienced Heiankyo Alien under its official moniker. They appear and disappear at will. The cabinets were produced with the cheapest materials possible and never intended to last. I loved to tell my friends that I could get all five parts and merge them into the blazing phoenix of destruction, even if I was lying about it. Unfortunately, the game received very little love from critics. Konami have released this anniversary collection and bundled it with some classic games.
The only ship destroyed is the ship attempting to dock. It was cool to stumble across this thread thus the resurrection. The helicopter would only wait about 30 seconds, then fly off. Before we start here, yes we know. Not only super geek doom and rare game that ended with Roketesuto only, and only rare game overseas exports, it is the item you want by all means justified. Long after losing interest in Ten Yard Fight and Tiger Heli, I was still sneaking over after school to play Terra Cresta. The maze is much smaller, making it slightly more difficult to arrange traps and avoid aliens.
A version for the Atari 5200 was programmed in 1983, but was never released. If you see one disappear and don't hear the familiar bird chirp of it reappearing, assume it is on the screen somewhere still. There are others that will work better or worse for your particular hardware. Dempa also released a port of both Moon Cresta and Terra Cresta for the X68000. I make it over there for the occasional visit and always take a trip to the basement to fire it up.
After completing the first eight waves the player's ship reverts to the first stage and the process is repeated. The graphics are quite impressive, especially regarding the Amazon herself. Advertisements for the game tried to play on this, discussing how Americans will finally get to play the game that took Japan by storm ten years ago. If the timer reaches zero, Tom will lose a life and play the current level over again. Any of you try the Famicom version? Sometimes they will appear right next to your ship so on these stages, be extra alert. She charged onto the scene with sword held high, defending her land and her people from destruction. The graphics are adorable, with the kebiishi and aliens given a chibi look.
It's not clear if they are weird creatures themselves, or vehicles being driven by weird creatures. It features three of Nichibutsu's or Nihon Bussan Arcade games from the early 80s, adapted for consoles but otherwise left as-is. After disposing of these first few enemies, the Amazon begins to encounter some truly strange creatures.

Scoring in this game is relatively simple. However, the upside to all this is that the enemy forces also suffer from the same vulnerability.
Two questions: 1 Does Terra Cresta end? So I'm sort of a half fanatic of the game. The Nichibutsu Arcade Classics games were recently broken up into three releases - gee, thanks guys - just one game + its updated version per disc. Another stage has a small boat at the top of the screen, allowing you to travel across the screen fairly fast. The trade-off for this is that the entire ship is a much larger target. Despite this questionable fashion choice, the threat they present is very real, as they attack in groups of three or four, and have excellent aim. I've told this story before, but I was also a big Terra Cresta fan years later.
