 Post subject: RQ: Gradius III (ARC) Rank?

Is there rank in the arcade version of Gradius III? It seems like there is... for instance if I use the Life-->Options powerup, there are a zillion bullets in 1-3. Or am I imagining this?

Yep there's rank. The amount of bullets shot goes up, at least. Not much you can do about it in this game, since it's so strict. It goes higher depending on how many options / powerups you've nabbed.

Good luck.

I haven't played much of Gradius III arcade, but in other arcade games in the series you could actually see the bullet speed & fire rate increase the instant you activated a power-up. If G3 follows the same pattern, you could probably calculate how much the various power-ups increase rank and find out the best amount to use.

Or watch some replays from that guy who can loop it like a dozen times.
