God that fucking main canon of boss is hard as crap. this must be hardest boss fight i've ever experienced. you've died too many times your skill even regress
tips for second boss destroy front canon immediately than focus on main canon's fire and dodge them all next destroy vulcan
This is excellent! That being said, hoo boy that second boss is just unbeatable for me. I finally took out one of its main guns and then it just goes insane. Don't think im gonna get beyond that.
I dont play too many shmups, so I don't know all the strats... but it seems like dropping your partner ship is kind of OP? Like, your fire rate goes up, AND its attack is pretty critical? I basically never mount it with me, which is kind of a bummer cuz thats where your powerups factor in. Maybe a buff to the mounted mode?
Sweet game, but I dont think I can beat that second boss.
fantastic game! great difficulty -- hard but barely possible for me -- and overclock mode was a treat!
oh interesting @paloblancogames, I actually came to the opposite conclusion -- I never dropped the partner ship, to focus on dodging and not so much on aiming. I did drop the partner ship during the final boss, to precisely take out targets to control the phase 2 aggro. I also don't play many shmups. I'm glad to see someone disagree with me -- I felt a tiny bit disappointed that the partner ship didn't seem very relevant. I didn't notice the fire rate difference, maybe I should reconsider.
@paloblancogames I've only played a bit, but I think your overall firepower is the same or greater when attached? The option ship autofires at nearby enemies whether it's attached or detached; at the start of the game, attached mode gives you three firestreams instead of two but I think the rate is lower, so maybe the output is the same. And then of course it increases with upgrades.
Also you're slower with the option detached.
