Usas is a MSX2, 1 megabit, megaROM cartridge. It is a plat former.
In a history of East Asia, the goddess's name is actually pronounced "Ushas." The dot below the S stands for "pronounce this letter as 'sh.'" Also I never knew that people called the Hindu thunder god "Induras!" A book of Eastern Religion wrote his name as Indras. Also what do all of the statues stand for because they seem to resemble the face of either Brahman or Vishnu?
Centuries ago, the War God Induras banished Usas, the supreme Mother God, and threw the four pieces of her jewel in the winds.
Wit and Cles are attempting to find the broken jewel to try and achieve one of the greatest discoveries of the academic world. Their adventures, controlled by you, will lead them to many strange places to fight many unusual enemies.
There are five stages in the game. You can go directly to every stage by entering a password at the intro screen. Press <CTRL> and then the password, following by a <ENTER>.
2 JUBA RUINS 3 HARAPPA RUINS 4 GANDHARA RUINS 5 MOHENJO DARO
By touching these icons, your player will change emotion. At the top of the screen you can see which emotion you have. You have to have the same emotion of the demon of the level to fight him. For the first level, you'll need the emotion that's to the left. For the second level, you'll need the second emotion, and so on.
If you have the first emotion and you're in the first level, Cles can walk over gaps and Wit can jump mid air (only once per jump).
If you press <F1> you can buy vitality, speed and jumping power.
If you insert another Konami game cartridge in slot B you can get some interesting effects.
There is a cheat that simulates all these combinations. Also, you have unlimited money. You'll need the original cartridge, it won't work on fMSX.
