Luna Strike FAQ

...coming soon?


O.K., it's not much, but here is a mini-review of what I consider to be the weakest game in Nectaris series... Earth Light: Luna Strike (Super Famicom, 1996, Hudson Soft)  If you are a fan of this game, please contact me and explain what you find compelling & enjoyable... I am eager to see things from a different perspective. For example, I evaluated Luna Strike as part of the Nectaris series.  In hindsight, I feel that perhaps this was an unfair / misguided approach to evaluating Luna Strike, since it is drastically different from its predecessor (1992's Earth Light) and therefore shares little with the Nectaris series.  I still don't think it is a stellar game, but maybe there are aspects that I have failed to appreciate.
Anyway, despite my disappointment with this game, I am sure I will sit down and give it another chance when I get some free time (keep in mind that this page was originally put up in Spring 2003 and I last updated it in Fall 2004 ... so I don't get much free time).  But who knows?  Maybe I'll fall in love with Luna Strike and have a full-fledged FAQ sooner than I anticipated.

REQUEST :   If you can contribute to the LUNA STRIKE FAQ in any way (i.e. providing a "how-to-play" guide, taking screenshots, scanning magazine coverage, translating the cinema scenes, etc.), please contact me.  Your contributions might inspire me to work on this neglected area of BASE NECTARIS.

This site is a tiny part of BASE NECTARIS, a project covering all things Nectaris.  FAQs, Box Scans, Weapon Guides, Cheats, Trivia, and more await you !

New!  The TURBOGRAFX-16 PRESERVATION SOCIETY is proud to present the TurboPlay Magazine Archives...

TurboPlay Magazine Archives (+ DuoWorld & TurboForce Magazine: TurboGrafx-16, TurboDuo, PC Engine, DUO)

TurboPlay was the only magazine dedicated exclusively to the ill-fated TurboGrafx-16 video game console.  This archive documents all 14 issues (1990-1992).  Following TurboPlay's demise, two new magazines appeared (albeit briefly) to fill in the void: DuoWorld and TurboForce. These magazines concentrated on covering the TurboDuo video game console (suc -  cessor to the TurboGrafx-16).  As such, DuoWorld and TurboForce are also included in the TurboPlay Magazine Archives.
