Cleared the first loop in SW3 8)

SONIC WINGS 3

1,705,200 - DocHauser - 2-4 - Kowful & River - MAME

I beat the normal end boss on Mars, and ended up dying on the 2-1 boss. Then I thought I wanted a screenshot of the end sequence, so I had another go...and cleared it again!

I got the comedy final-boss the 2nd time - seemed pretty easy, I wonder if it's worth as many points as the normal boss? I finished the loop with a bit less, at any rate. The 2-1 boss has a slighty unexpected difference... 2-2 boss is the same. The bonus stage scrolls backwards quickly and the tanks are more spread out, so it's not as easy to rack up points in it. Died on 2-4, only just beating the score for the 2-1 run.

Oh yeah, first death was on 1-8. I beat the 1-7 giant squid boss with no deaths and no bombs!

I see the HG101 article mentions the comedy final boss...

http://hardcoregaming101.net/aerofighters/aero3.htm

Lastly, Aero Fighters 3 makes an unexpected jab at Taito's Darius series, parodying its pre-boss warning message and making you fight the stupidest battle in the series, a giant mahjong tile dressed as a school girl that skips and prances when attacking and cries when it gets hit. If she kills you, you get a special game over screen where she prances and sings as the world burns.


Not sure how you actually trigger it, though.

I dunno, just played about as good as I play, a lot of really intense boss fights w/o bombs and managed to sneak through. Got to 1-8 w/a spare life and felt really good...first section is brutally hard w/Kowful & River, too slow and no way to get to all those spinning turrets - died fast, then bombed to clear on through.

Then I panic bombed that eye thing, which I thought was the end boss - but nope, managed to get past him only to get to a bunch of suicidal monkeys, which I hope was part of the end boss? At any rate, a really good run and can't play much better.

Fresh off seeing 1-5 in the first Strikers 1945, I put that same performance to work here!

Ahh, I'm only one stage away from clearing 2 games now. I gotta concentrate on one of these and beat the damn thing.

Yeah, that's the thing...need to focus on just one for a couple days until it's cleared, right now i'm at last stage, or 2nd to last on 3 diff. games. I don't have any illusions about clearing a Psikyo game, though.

Also, yr pics are still not loading for me, Fox.

Dammit, I thought so. I just got a new phone last week and that's what I've been using. I'll have to do it from the netbook, then.

That's a pretty good score for SWS. Which route did you take in stage 5 & 7?
