Sand is the seventh stage in Nemesis 3.


Taking place inside of a sand cavern, the player must constantly dodge the falling sand which pushes the player craft into the ground and maneuver around the shifting landmass. On the first portion with falling sand the player can find a map piece by shooting the rock in the ground, revealing a secret spot. Later in the stage sand blasts will come from the right, while enemies constantly jump from the sand. The first hatchet in this area hides a secret weapon.
