The perfect pocket shooter: it's the only way you can describe Fantasy Zone, the latest epic in the Fantasy Zone series and the first Fantasy Zone art for Game Gear.
Trouble has come once again to the technicolor world of the Fantasy Zone. The evil Menons, traditional enemies of the Zone, have kidnapped Opa - Opa. You are Opa - Opa Jr., son of the hero. Here's what you have to do: rescue your dad and grind the Menons, who are really strange, into alien paste!
Fantasy Zone is seven big stages of shoot'em up fun. Piloting Opa - Opa Jr., the little red and green powerhouse, you blast the Menons to get coins. You can use them to buy bigger and better engines, shooters and bombs for Opa - Opa Jr.
As you get into Fantasy Zone you'll find that although the Menons become tougher and weirder, the basic strategy stays the same. Each stage contains Menon bases. You have to wipe them all out before fighting the boss. A few long bursts with the normal shot or a few bombs will generally do the trick.
Blast a Menon And Get Some Gold
But go single minded for the bases and you'll be in trouble. Each stage has smaller Menon critters. They travel in groups of three or more and are incredibly nasty. Most stay mid - screen in the game. You can shoot or avoid them by being a little careful. It's the bugs that snake up and down across the screen that will snag you. If you've bought special shooters and other gear and get zapped, you lose it all. Go for the gold...but do it with an eye for self - preservation.
Gold comes in handy for buying things that turn you into a flying fistful of doom. At shops you'll find items for speed, weapons like lasers and twin bombs and special items like shields and extra ships.
Speed items include big wings ($100) and rocket engines ($100,000). Moving too fast in the Zone can be a serious liability. It's best to leave the engines alone until you feel ready to live Zone life in the fast lane.
Your Weapon 1's are all shooters. The best Weapon 1 for battling stage bosses is the laser shot, a high powered beam that really toasts 'em good.
Weapon 2 choices are of the bomb variety. They are good for pinpoint hammering of the stage bosses. Best choice is the heavy bomb. Special items include the extra ship and the flash attack. Get the extra ship first. It's like buying an extra life. The flash attack is strong medicine against really evil stage bosses. It takes a short time to charge. But when it goes...Wow!
The toughest part of each stage is beating the bosses. The first boss, Lefant, is easy. Just shoot him in the nose, dodging the spear - like proboscis, until he explodes. Take out Fllame, the stage 2 boss, by hitting him with a heavy bomb, then shoot until he's toast. Stage 3 pits you against Iceeze, who tries to put the chill on you. Use the flash to thaw a few of his features, then blast the rest. From here on, the bosses get really vicious. It will take the most powerful weapons, and all your gaming skill, to beat fem down.
Grab hold of Fantasy Zone and hang on. Once you're in the groove with Opa - Opa Jr., you'll know why this is the perfect pocket shooter.
