Moai is the fifth stage in Nemesis 3.


This is a traditional Moai stage in which the player must survive an onslaught of Moai to get through. As the player advances through the level the moai curiously become more mechanical in design and adopt new tactics, such as turning around and shooting large lasers upwards or downwards.

A secret weapon can be found between two upside-down, opposite-facing moai at the beginning of the level, while one of the map pieces is found between two opposite-facing moai at the end of the level, close to the bottom of the screen.
