A 1990 Shoot 'em up for the NES by Compile, Gun-Nac is full of murderous robot bunnies firing explosive carrots, giant cat statues, and a bank level where you're attacked by gold coins. The game starts out being very fun and pretty easy, until AREA-7 and 8, where the difficulty ramps up quite a bit. Still, the game has infinite continues, which makes it doable.

    Carrots are not healthy snack power-ups!

    I reached the octopus boss of AREA-3 (of 8) and the NES froze, which it does a lot right now. Grrr...

    CONFIG.SYS?
  • 8349
    Hmm, there is a area select cheat in the CONFIG.SYS menu. Select Sound Test no. 5 and the area.

    I played through AREA 1-5, which were very fun and easy.
  • 9331
    I completed AREA-6. AREA-7 was pretty tough, and now I'm stuck on AREA-8, which is kind of a boss rush.

    I've been preferring weapon 3, which homes in on the enemies, but is pretty weak. The letters F, W, B, and T each increase your smart bomb supply with 1, and switches the smart bomb type to one corresponding to the letter. I prefer B 'barrier', a vertical wall, or F 'fireballs', a circle of fireballs.

    When you lose a life, you continue immediately, but lose your weapons. If you lose all lives, you can continue, starting the level over. The game has infinite continues.

    Argh, the last boss is super annoying.
  • 9338
    completed the game on INTERMEDIATE (2/4) difficulty. Yes! After many failed attempts at the last boss, I finally entered the boss fight 5 lives and the W smart bomb, which is probably the best for this boss, and beat it with a life to spare.

    CONGRATULATIONS! YOU HAVE PULVERIZED THE ENEMY!

    A minor critique of this otherwise great game: I don't really like the music that much, I find it a bit annoying.
