Description of Life Force for NES

The first player controls Vic Viper and the second player takes the reins of debuting spacecraft Lord British, which is sometimes referred as "Road British" due to the ambiguity of Japanese-to-English romanization. The game features six stages which alter between horizontal and vertical scrolling.

Life Force was ported to the Nintendo Entertainment System in 1988. Instead of being a direct port of Life Force, elements were taken from both that and Salamander, and some elements, such as levels and bosses, were removed to make way for new content. Interestingly, most of the level graphics and enemy sprites from Salamander are used in favor of the ones used in Lifeforce, and it uses the Gradius power-up bar. The same year, Japan received a port as well for its NES equivalent, the Nintendo Famicom. The game was practically identical to the NES port of Lifeforce, other than being titled Salamander and featuring the power-up of its arcade counterpart. These ports make use of the Konami Code, which in this instance increases the number of lives from three to 30.
