You're getting about as far as I am in this game. Much harder than the first Gradius.

great choice, whoever selected Gradius II, it's an excellent game

as with Goonies, it's baffling that this game had no American release!

 

edit: that was a Gradius 1 score sorry.

CORRECTION.

Sorry folks !! I posted my Gradius score, not Gradius II.

 

Correct Gradius II score: 32310

now I see a possible reason for Gradius II not getting a US release - the difficulty!

Just like with SMB2.

Those Japanese kids I guess had more of a craving for difficulty.
