Super Nova


sgm0136 - Developed and Published by the Taito Corporation, Darius Force (also known in North America as Super Nova) is a rare game that was released for the Super Nintendo Entertainment System (SNES) in 1993. Super Nova is a space fighter shoot 'em up from Taito that is also part of the Darius series. One main difference between this game and the rest of the Darius games is that the player can choose one of three Silver Hawks to play. The green one is the Silver Hawk of Darius. The blue one is the Silver Hawk of Darius II. The red one is a new prototype of Silver Hawk that exists only in this game. There are three power-ups on this game, which can be obtained on three ways: 1. Destroying a complete formation of ships like in Darius II and Darius Twin or amoebas. 2. Destroying a flashing meteor during a meteor rain. 3. Destroying a futuristic cage on the floor and/or ceiling of an area.

The power-ups for this game are the red bubble (shot and bomb power up), the blue bubble (shield regenerate and level up) and the green bubble (randomly gives a bonus point or an extra ship). There is also a special power up that can destroy all enemies on screen if it's destroyed (like Darius II) or can make the Silver Hawk shot a powerful Ray beam if its grabbed by the player. There is no power up bar, which means that if a Silver Hawk is destroyed, the shots and bombs are powered down to the minimum level. Also, when the player loses a ship on a stage, it is returned to the beginning of that stage, unless the ships has lost during a boss battle.

Like Darius Twin, the player uses (by default) the Y button for shot and the B button for dropping bombs. As long as the player keeps pressed both buttons, the shots are powered down one level. The player can change between bombs and side Ray guns by pressing the R button. The stages map for this game is very different of the rest of the Darius games. This map contains 15 stages, but only allows to take forward or up paths, until the player reaches the L, N or O stage. Each one of those three stages contains its own boss and ending. Pre-owned - Includes Game Only, no manual or instructions are included.
