Welcome, The Guardian Legend fans, retro gamers and everyone who loves to play
shoot-em-up games! First of all, forgive me my English, since it’s not my native language.
I present to you unofficial sequel of the game, made in the spirit of original.
All classic features were gently moved to sequel, excluding password system and
exploits like walking through walls and infinite bonus healing. The rest is the same - the game is divided into labyrinth part and the part where you fly through corridors. Corridor completion opens new areas with new corridors, and some of them are sealed just like in old times.
Everyone who’s not familiar with the original game can read about it on any gaming
site or watch YouTube videos. I will concentrate onnew features only.
So, in the ending of the original game Naju planet (o r star, to be more precise) was
destroyed. But was it for real? And who was that mysterious helper who left messages
for us? Before you find out, please read this useful information
