Ikaruga

Post by sakuragen » Tue Jul 15, 2008 1:12 pm

I've seen tons of people on the net saying it's practically impossible to beat this game. I've got the gamecube version and spent hours and hours on the game. Now I've completed it without cheats or anything and everything is now unlocked - but I thought if you played for more than 20hours you got more continues to enable you to beat the game. Or am I being thick and guys are talking about beating it on 1 credit???

Anyone can 'beat it' if they use continues. Generally, people are talking about 1 credit, yes.

Keep playing and you'll get more continues. Eventually, it'll switch to free play.

I've pretty much stopped playing this now, but I could get most of the way through the third level without continues although I was concentrating on chaining and score than going for a 1cc run.

ive completed it using only 1 life, well 2 if you class having to blow up at the end, i can say its not easy, this makes ninja gaiden look easy. i have an early youtube video where i actually end up dieing in the first level.
i found its very hard to focus on a high score when ya trying not to die.

anyway im a chump at this game compared to some people, check ou the jap websites, they do speedruns

I've managed to get to the fourth level without continues, but...gah. I must admit I haven't given it my all; sat down with the intent to finish it before I get up. It's on my list of things to-do, right next to getting all the discoveries, getting all the bounties, completing all the sub-quests and finishing Skies of Arcadia.

Bloody kebab spices...

I had something to say here, but having to redo my registration all these times makes me not want to bother.
