Season 18 Round 5 of 15 - Parodius Da!

Recommended Posts

Sorry about the delay.  Up next is a different take on the Gradius series.  Be aware that this game commonly goes by two names:  Parodius Da! or just Parodius.  Also note that we're going to play on Normal difficulty which is not the default.

Got to play for a bit this afternoon, so figured this was good enough to get things started.

 

Ashamed to admit, though, that I'm not so sure if I'm defeating some of the bosses (mini bosses, maybe), or if they're giving up and just exiting the screen out of boredom.

I was wondering about this too, especially for this boss as attacking her didn't seem to do anything at all.  I later watched a YouTube video and the player didn't even attack this one.  They just waited until she walked off the screen and the game continued on.

The flicker!!!   😖    Some weirdness happens near the end of the game.  Could be because I don't speak/read Japanese, but I'm not sure what was going on.  So I just did my normal "shoot stuff and don't get shot" style of play.   There may be some tricks n' strategies in there, but I'm ignorant.  


Still fun though!

Meh... I liked it.  😄   I got in that zone where I was determined to get to the end before I quit for the day.  Kinda took me back to those days of renting a game for the weekend, so you had to make it a point to finish it in time to to get it back before the video store closes.
