Gradius II *THE MADNESS* Mk.III
May 24, 2008
Three tricks for Gradius II GOFER.
BIG EYE QUICK KILL-
Very easy, safe, and fast way to kill BIG EYE found by Giga Core. This can't be done on the top though for some reason.
BIG EYE TIME OUT-
Shows how you can get past BIG EYE while completely underpowered. Very useful if you die on him during the second loop. You must move downward at the end to avoid being crushed.
Sadly, this trick only works on the Deluxe Pack version of the game, and not the arcade version.
Crystal Core Quick Kill-
Very safe and fast way to dispatch Crystal Core, found by JMD. You are invulnerable in this position, allowing you to drag your options into a quick kill position.
CRYSTAL CORE SAFE SPOT-
Shows just how safe you are in this position, you can even activate your Force Field here and it will be functional.
Again, this trick is only available on the Deluxe Pack version.
GUN WALL 2 SECOND KILL-
The fastest way to destroy Gun Wall yet found. For some reason you can't be hit by the core when you're all the way to the right of the screen. Your options will be in perfect position to destroy the core. Use missiles ONLY, as they work much faster than lasers, or lasers and missiles.
GUN WALL KILL WITHOUT OPTIONS-
Is trickier. You won't be able to hit the core when all the way to the right side of the screen, so you must move backwards. This is possible due to an exploit I call the *weak spot*. There is a small area of the core, slightly above the middle of it, that you can fly through. Move up and back through this weak spot and use your missiles.
GUN WALL WEAK SPOT-
Demonstrates the weak spot. You can fly into the weak spot and drag you options into position for quick kill with missiles. I use this weak spot in my video *Gradius the MADNESS Mk. II*, near the end.
This trick does work in the arcade version, but is slightly different, as you aren't invulnerable from the core at the far right of the screen, and must rely on the weak spot for penetration. Harder to do, but fully possible.
This trick was found by both JMD and Giga Core.
The music is *Nervous Breakdown* from the Salamander 2 OST.
