 Post subject: RQ: Gradius 3 Arcade - cube attack and Lizard Core

Hello folks,

currently, I'm stuck at level 9 where I have to face the cube attack and the lizard core.

For the cube attack, I'm aware that some people manage to stack the the cubes in a manner that they block following cubes, however is there a way that workd for every pattern?

Second, I need a tactic for lizard core that works even for limited artillery.

Thanks

If you follow what this guy does to get past the cube part you should be able to make it through no problem: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SSkqRJS6KP4&NR=1. After watching this video I was able to beat it first try. Good luck!

Since the pattern changes each run, I cannot always apply it, unfortunately.

Are you playing in the PS2? The safespots in the arcade version don't work in the PS2 version and vice-versa.

I didn't test much but I think the patterns are the same in every run.

Well you could go to the cube rush practice mode, set rank to max and practice. The problem is, I don't know if practice mode at max rank has the same pattern as when you're playing the game from the start...if the pattern is different, all your practice goes to waste. The only way to really know is comparing the patterns yourself =/

Actually I was going to do that a few months ago, but instead I switched to MAME and now use replays to help me with that section, since the pattern never change in the arcade version.
