Salamander is a shooter by Konami and conversion of their own arcade game originally released in 1986. The players takes control of an highly advanced space-fighter called the Vic Viper and fights his way through relentless hordes of aliens and globulous brains. Power-up icons are scattered throughout the game and upgrade the ship in various ways - speed up, missiles, lasers, ripple lasers and force fields. The game features a unique stage layout and alternates horizontal and vertical levels. Each area is specifically engineered to create an immersive gameplay from deadly organic tentacles to hostile fire snakes.
