Take control of an advance space craft known as Vic Viper and maneuver between enemy fire and alien spacecrafts in this old school arcade shooter – Gradius! Collect capsules and fill your power meter to unlock new weapons and unleash even more powerful attacks!

Gradius (also known as Nemesis) is a classic horizontal side scrolling arcade shooter released back in 1985 for the Nintendo Entertainment System (SNES). This shoot’em up video game is famous for its extreme difficulty and varied power-ups. In this game, the player takes control of the trans-dimensional spaceship called Vic Viper. The player must then battle waves of enemies through various environments and emerge victorious. The game’s space ship starts off as relatively weak and unfit for combat, however, with enough power ups, you can upgrade your ship to become a mean fighting machine. Have fun!
