The anime telltale huge eyes....
The real reason I pick Greg is that he looks like Super Mario flying
Too bad a mobile missile launcher can't fire downwards.....stay below firing range and blast away.
Every time you beat a level, you are treated (or have to sit through, depending on your frame of mind), a victory screen.
Destroy that airborne bundle of 10 billion dollars of taxpayer's money (don't tell them it was you though...)
What's a carrier doing on land? Send your response to Shmups, c/o 22 McSplatterem Lane, Bonnieblastie, Scotland, and the most original answer will win an authentic F-22 interceptor plane, delivered straight to your house!
Here is the bonus level, you have to destroy three trucks before time runs out. I just smash right into them, since nothing fires back at you and its the quickest way to get the job done.
Three annoying mini-stealths plague the second flying level.
The enemy even throws a nuclear sub at you, which jumps up out of the water.
This level is a huge palace like the one in Strider, with big guns and other dangerous things, like a person running with a pair of scissors, or changing a light-bulb in the bath. (be careful).
You sunk my battleship! UN is cool because the plane turns around at some larger bosses and does continual passes until you finish the job.
The Blackbird boss of what is, in my game, level 8. Stay away from the backside as his thrusters toast you.
Into the cavernous level of 9. I wonder if Lara Croft has been here before?
This is sheer stupidity. You need an upward firing weapon to beat this guy, and only the 5th and 6th planes have this ability, so in other words you need to have saved up and bought a higher priced plane by now. You are, of course, supposed to just somehow know this out of the blue....
That unselectable level again, the final showdown. Look for hidden shields and powerups in this section, by shooting around in thin air. They are very helpful.
A warm-up boss as you approach the last guy. This plane doesn't look like it should fly...why the huge gut?
The last boss....shoot away the guns and fins, then expose the core. You need downward attacking weapons here, such as bombs. Save your specials for the core.
Oh, no...not another weak ending... if I see one more CONGRATULATIONS!, I'll scream! I guess half the fun is getting there, anyway...
