Guide for SFAs

Lord O'Donnell

Recommended Posts

If you will post please make sure its another "guide" for a level or something we can do to increse points

I have never seen anything like this so I did it.

About the points and weapons

These are some basics to get more points: "trigger finger" the faster you press the buttons the more enemies you can kill, however you must know how to alternate attacks and where. You must learn something on your own.

Blaster: it has 3 levels of charge shots, but you can "increase" the power of a charge shot by walking towards the enemy. An example of this is how you can destroy two barrel machines from sargasso with a green shot. If you stand in front of it with a green shot and release it you must shot it again (it takes a red one), if you walk you can destroy two, the same happens to all enemies. if you walk backwards you will "decrease" its power.

Machine gun and Gatling gun: Good for everything, but save the gatling gun for the "tanks" and "cannon towers"

Sniper: Use it against "tanks" and "cannon towers"

Tanks are the guys that shot black energy balls, in mission 9 they shot 4 missiles (they are easier because you can destroy them).

Cannon Towers are the enemies that cant move, there are three kinds: blue ones they shot black energy balls, Green ones they shot missiles, Red ones are like machine guns (there are some enemies that move and have the same attack)

I wont describe the whole mission just some points

Mission 1: at the beginning some enemies will come in formation, lock and shot the one in the center, try to be in front of it when you release the shot. Save the bomb and use it against the prototype, release it when the 3 little things have come out, if you do it correctly some blue enemies will show up, use the breaks all the time and as much as you can, charge shots will give you more points for killing them at once and for killing them all instead when you just killl them all. From here you can do whatever you want, but try to use the next bombs for the boss or for the robots at the end of the level, remember that you must kill all blue robots plus the brown ones before them for more points. The "cans" in the base are points too.

Mission 2: I cant say anything but try to keep the combo during the mission, there should be around 300 enemies in the level. Look for videos and they will teach you more, at youtube I will upload all my videos.

Mission 3: This is one of the "never ending" missions because you can kill as many enemies you want if you dont destroy the targets in the first part of it (the one before Wolf's arrival). Once again try to keep the combo. At youtube you can find my videos (2 of them). The more time you wait the more battleships you will see. The missiles are points and also the parts of the battleship.

Mission 4: This mission is actually easy, the order in which you should destroy the targets is from "easy to hard" the one next to you, and finally the one with the gigantic snails. The second and the third have "secret enemies" you must hover in front of the green diamond to see more enemies. Careful dont land over the "tanks". theres another spot with "secret enemies" in one of the bridges near to the second tower you must hover (there are many cannon towers over the area). Once you are near to the third tower you will see a cave with many enemies inside, leave some enemies near to it and procced to the tower, do the hover thing, continue through the near cave up to the bridge, and then go back, with all the nenemies that you left behind and the ones in the cave you should be able to enter the base with a high combo (the gauge must be full too). Quickly kill the bots to keep the combo, IF you did it correctly the combo you will end with will be 454 or better. (There will be soon a video)

Mission 5: Use the brakes after defeating the enemy that lauches missiles and many lasers. Once again save the bomb until you see the infected protoype and use the brakes. Thats all.

Mission 6: I cant say much of it, it is the other "never ending" mission, it is harder to explain than missio 4 (There will be soon a video). But if you keep the combo the best you will have is 350 (Or at least thats my best, there are better ones)

Mission7: Am not the best and there wont be a video, it isnt the hardest mission, but it is quite complicated for a combo (that doesnt mean I am the best at the other missions, but am near to be). If anyone can upload a video of the mission or write a guide do it.

Mission 8: The most popular mission, I cant say anything that hasnt been told before, just shot everything you see.

Mission 9: You can 1) look at my videos or 2) follow this crappy guide. The planet is divided in four colours, your first objective is to clean the red section (only the place where there are no enemies just cannon towers) but try to dont kill many enemies at the hall, only the energy balls. From there go back and get the land master (when doing this dont kill enemies). Destroy all enemies in the area where the landmaster and arwing are, go to the purple section and kill the enemies to the left, go to the purple door (get out of the landmaster) and when you are inside go to the right and finally go to the other side. When you go out head to the left (it must be the red) kill everyone inside the red section (get down of the landmaster), head to the green section, before going inside destroy the tanks above (the place where a flag is), when you are inside kill those to the right and then to the others. Finally head to the yellow section. My best is 300 (those are almost all enemies) If you can get to the arwing you can continue the combo(find my videos at youtube).

Mission 10: For more points use the charge shots. You will see the same enemy from level 5 (lasers then missiles), just try to avoid the "kamikaze" guys. For the section with the closing bars just accelerate. The place with the "opening and closing bars" accelerate but if you see you cant pass quickly brakethen accelerate. For the last enemies move to the right upper corner and when you see the second wolfen coming go to the left lower corner. Bombs are almost useless for the boss so use them in the level
