DragonBuster - This mother's strong! oO

Right now, the story goes as follows... In ancient times my dad had both Metal Gear 1 and apparently this game, DragonBuster on cartridge. One terrible day in that ancient history, he gave both of them away to some random person at M.A.D. [MSX Avengers Doetinchem, fyi].
That cast aside, I always wondered what other game he gave away that day. So I 'generation-msx'-ed it, and I found DragonBuster. I downloaded it from you-know-where and started playing it. Well, it appeared to be a cracked version from SMA. I couldn't care less.
BUT WHAT IS THE POINT OF THIS GAME? I can't beat the dragon at all, no matter how I strike at it. Furthermore, I assume this has something to do with using items and stuff, so I wondered, how do I use items? I found out that using [Z], the game pauses and shows the item list, and with [X] I can swap out the active item. But how do I put it to good use?

Who can help me? Is there anyone?

Each dragon makes some funny looking headbangin' movement.

Every time its head comes down, give it as much strikes as you can with your sword.

Also, if you got the brown butterfly things, you can shoot some fireballs at it, which is a lot safer for you.

Oh, and you have to gain a L.O.T. of level / strength / HP at each new level!

(BTW I think this game sucks major donkey balls but I remember how to play it Wink)

DemonSeed: how long would it take for me to beat this first one? I can get up close to it and hit it in the bullocks and knees time after time, and if I do the double jump trick, I can hit his head while jumping too.

But furthermore: how do I fire one of those fireballs?

Sorry, I don't really remember.

...Kicked the dragons' butt yet?

If not, I'll play the game tonight and see if I can recall the way to shoot fireballs.

Ducking and pushing the jump button does the trick.

However, in my memory it could also be done standing.

Major donkey balls, indeed! I once paid good money for this cartridge, beat it in one go and tossed it in the dumpster. Crying

Hehe, feeling lucky, I used the [F9]/speedup option a couple of days ago, along with the SMA unlimited lives hack (and of course, this doesn't work at that sodding dragon, as the inflicted damage by it is hard-coded), got 20K experience points by beating the hell out of those critters that appear every once in a while and found out that for every 10K EXP, the HP will increase by 16. oO

Fair gameplay, hmmm?

The best thing about this game is probably the title screen Smile

If you wait "too long" before ending a stage, the only enemies will be black/green gremlin things with teeth which normally totally destroy your shit in 10 seconds or so.

Playing this "trained" version however, you could take advantage of them as you gain a LOT of exp from this things.

This way, you'll be strong enough to kill the dragon in less hits than the usually required 65536 (wild hunch).

@manuel: Agree. Smile
