Bowling Ball of Death
« on: March 02, 2008, 04:58:02 pm »

I'm finally on the sixth unit(You might have seen my other help threads). Bowser, no problem. Wart, easy. Wily...not so good. His flame attacks are easy, but when the bowling ball starts rolling, I either A). Gets crushed by it. B). Can't jump over it. Or my personal favourite, C). Jumps over it and then gets torched. Anyways, I need tips on how to jump over the first and second bowling ball. Especially tips on when I should jump over the ball. Thanks for any tips you guys give.

I have a risky strategy.

After the last fire thingy, run under wily and as he drops
the ball, jump off the side and double jump back on as the ball
rolls away.  When you jump, make sure you jump as its coming
down at you or you'll die because the ball will get in the way.

Hope it helps a little.

But wouldn't that mean I'd get less shots into Wily. Oh well, I'll try your technique. Thanks for the tip.

So I would want to jump off the ledge as the bowling ball is about to hit the ground, and then quickly double jump back when it rolls away? Hmm, doesn't sound too hard. But then again...

You may want to disreagard my strategy, I just beat bowser again
the way you jump over the bowling ball.
I got one more tip, if you jump over the balls, when you knock out wily run to the far left
and wait until the lag stops,(it happens cuz of the music), then jump.

I have this weird strategy of shooting to the left repeatedly in an attempt to glitch the game. Apparently, if you time it just right, when you turn to start shooting to the right, there will be pretty much no limit to the amount of bullets you can pour onto the screen, as long as you don't ever stop shooting (this will hurt your hand). You just flood the screen nonstop and avoid his fire, and when he drops the marble or whatever it is, you can usually get about 10-12 shots off (just make sure you're close enough because the bullets are still subject to range restrictions). If you're good you can wait for him to hover over the ball again and give him the last couple, but preferably you just stop and give your hand a rest, then give him the last bit on the next go using the normal 4 max.

I'm not sure how I get this to work, and it's definitely sporadic (I just use the idle time during the 2nd form to try to get it started). Maybe someone more intimate with the way the game is programmed might be able to explain it better than I can.

I'm pretty positive that the max bullet glitch is fixed in newer builds. But thanks for the help anyways. It's sad though, I can jump over Dracula's moon, yet not Wily's bowling ball?!  :o I have like a 20% chance of actually getting to the second bowling ball. Oh well, I'll keep trying.

You may not want to hear this but that would
mean you have a 1/125 chance of jumping all the
balls in succession.  Depending on how many times it
takes you.

Ah you are right. Apparently the reason I can't always get it to work is because I didn't know I had two different versions downloaded!  :o

Oh em gee! Do I smell improvement?

Ha! I can jump over the first ball now (most of the time.) But even though the second is easier, I somehow still manage to mess up. God, I really hate myself, because once I actually took down Wily, but I decided to die on the second remaining ball. AUGH  >:(

Keep at it. Also try to shoot Wily as much as possible when you can so you don't have to go through as many balls. Although that really goes without saying...
I think when I did it I took him down on the first ball. It's not too hard to jump over, but jumping over and avoiding the fire is, so make sure you time your jump for when there's no fire behind it.

Awesome! I finally beat Wily. I managed to beat him after the second ball started rolling for, mm, maybe 2 seconds or so? Thanks for all the tips guys. Mods, you know what to do.
