Title: Clown Copter?
Post by: Bittersoul on November 08, 2007, 01:28:17 am
Okay, I've gotta break down.  I've beaten everything but this, it's my last boss, and I'm agitated.

Maybe I'm missing something, but what exactly should I be doing the third phase of Clown Copter?  I dodge those stupid balls like nothing else, I think I've gotten through 5 of them, and I don't have any idea what I should be doing.


Edit: Never mind.  I figured it out.  I was certainly wasting a lot of time and effort.  And I know it's been covered already, but those balls can be obnoxious to jump over.

Okay, you've GOT to be joking not putting a save after Clown Copter.

Edit: Once again discovered that a simple hop off to the left will let me use the first one.  This entire thread is filled with my idiocy.  Nonetheless, the room after the boss is pretty ferocious.

What I could use, however, is a protip on getting past the screen where you're attacked by 6 little helicopters.  I can kill them all, climb all the way to the top, and get onto the little falling blocks.  As near as I can tell, however, there's a vertical ceiling there, I can't seem to move past it.  Am I missing something?

Triple posting madness!

I think that on the final falling block you need to just jump straight up.  It's been a while since I did that screen, so I forget.

Yeah, I considered deleting all of these to be perfectly honest.  But, I decided that the board seems calm enough that it doesn't get too much in the way.  It's like a running count of my idiocy.  Plus, gotta get the post count up.  Newbie doesn't fit my style.  In any case I figured that part out only to have the wind knocked out of my by the ridiculous spike room after it.  I opted to quit for the night and mentally prepare for tackling it tonight.

Theres no save after? Weird. I'd have to fix that.

After the Clown Copter, though?  You shouldn't need a save point.  You can just run back to the last one.  Besides, isn't there a save after the room with the ceiling-o-doom?

I thought there were issues with bosses respawning after you collected the units, though.

None that I've experienced.

Well, there's a little hop to backtrack to the last save room, so I was thrown off by it at first.  If you just run to the left you can't get back, you have to hop like there's a little ledge there.  Threw me off at first.  But as far as a save after the ceiling of death...   I had to do that stupid room so many times, I can only IMAGINE what it would've been like had I needed to fight Clown Copter every time.

Actually, in retrospect, I prefer having the little jump back to the previous save room.  It amuses me to think that there would be someone playing who was a bit less enterprising than we are, and they wouldn't think about jumping.  Torment is the name of the game, after all.

You mean someone like yourself, initially? XD

Shh!  These things are all subjective!!  Think of it like this...  The reason I messed it up the first time was so I could appreciate the irony of it happening to other people!  It's all about perspective.  Now let's proceed by pretending it didn't happen.


Hey!  Remember that time I beat Clown Copter and figured out on the first try that you can save in the previous room??!!  Man, that was a hoot!

I did the same thing with Tyson the first time.

You jump over the dang ball.

I think he was asking what to do to defeat him.

: show
You have to shoot at the big ball to have it ricochet at Wily.  You can probably kill him in two balls if you're fast enough.

You can kill Wily with the very first bowling ball.

For those of us without a turbo controller(l.o.l.)

It may someday be useful to figure out the nuber of hits each boss takes per phase.

I don't have to imagine; I completed that boss twenty times and proceeded to get my rear kicked by the next room every single time. I really wish I knew you had to jump for the previous save beforehand.

It takes 13 shots to make Dracula spawn his Ectoplasms.
Yes I counted.

I don't own a turbo controller.  What you do is shoot the ball, jump, and then start shooting the ball again.

I finally got him :) Turns out you just need a running start to jump over the ball  :kid:
Title: Re: Clown Copter?
Post by: Xylon Lionheart on December 18, 2007, 06:08:21 pm
The kid jumps just as high if you are moving or standing still.  Moving while doing the jump does make it... ea..si..er...

I NEED TO TALK TO TACO RIGHT NOW.

Well if you're running you're more likely to clear the most amount of horiztonal distance.

Exactly, and thank god for that, I really needed a win ^_^
