In addition to the regular
campaign featured in the game, Neo Nectaris provides five additional maps
( 2 X 1 screens in size ) specifically designed for 2-player competitions.
In these five scenarios, both players are evenly matched in terms
weapons and geographical advantage. This contrasts with
standard 2-player matches in the regular campaign ( maps 1 - 48 )
that tend to favor the second player, since player two (as the Guicy
Empire) tends to have access to better weapons than player one (the Union).
TRIVIA: "VERSUS MODE" is not offered on any other title in
Selecting "VS. & PASSWORD" from the main title
screen will provide the following options: 1P P
(where password = map name), 2P PASSWORD ( where
two players, 1P = Union 2P = Guicy, compete against each other on any
of the regular 48 maps ) , and VS Mode (5 unique
maps where opposing sides are evenly matched).
