Ha ha, nice example score.

My impressions of this game a few years ago were that it was: complicated, hard, and not fun.

After 3 runs tonight, my impressions: complicated, hard, and very fun.

Tons to figure out - seems a bit daunting right now.

Definately some chaining, not intricate chaining, but more kill all 5 in this burst, get a bonus type of stuff.

Not positive what the colored balls are doing yet.

You can use your magnet shot to collect an enemy ship and use him as your own - i'm not sure what the advantage of getting rid of them is though? It seems like you can suicide them and they blow up - but they don't seem to blow up anything else around? Need more work at this.

First boss didn't seem to want to go down - but we hooked him. Onto boss 2...

By “rank”, you mean the Gold Eagle thing they give you after a G.O.?

I know the colored balls upgrade attributes:

Green - Bomb
Red - Shot
Purple - Capture Stock
Blue - Shield

G Darius is indeed hard. But strangely, I think it's my favorite Darius. I just think the 2.5 graphics look amazing in the Darius universe.

Yeah, I'm not quite sure what blowing up your captured enemies does, either.
Also, if you shoot your Alpha Beam when a boss does, apparently you go into a beam battle, and have to mash the buttons to fight. If you win, the boss takes massive damage.

For example, boss 1, when he releases that pink beam, I want to time it w/my blue beam?
