Giga Crush!

September already? Oh well, this took longer than I expected, but I ran into some bugs while preparing this update of Bass Abyss, so I fixed them.

The Giga Crush is a special attack of Mega Man X’s Second Armor that damages all the enemies on screen.

Gameplay details

I didn’t really have the time to study in detail the original Giga Crush mechanics from Mega Man X2. So I just went with some simple rules.

Everyime you get hit, the Giga Crush gauge loads a bit. Once fully loaded, you can use it. The way to check the current level or use it is to switch to it, as another weapon. For this use the DELETE, PAGE DOWN keys.

Now, it took me a while to get used to it. Out of habit, I kept pausing the game expecting to see the X2 Weapon Screen to check the status of the Giga Crush gauge. This got me thinking, it would be really nice to have it. But well, I did no have the time to do it. I really don’t have any plans to add any more weapons anyway, so I decided against it.

Now I’ll take it easy and keep fixing bugs before I release the Level Editor. Be sure to blast everyone to oblivion with this weapon. This version does work on bosses! Have fun!
