How to defeat The Destroyer’s legions
Wor starts off quite sluggish, but by collecting Feather power-ups during your adventure you can boost his overall pace. Two Feather power-ups are enough to get the optimal speed, anything more and you may have trouble keeping Wor under control.
For most of the game, the Red or Blue gem shot patterns will suffice, but there are several moments where the Yellow gem – which gives you forward and rear firepower – makes all the difference. Thankfully, these gems usually appear exactly when they’re needed.
The special attack items each have a use, so you shouldn’t ignore them – they can mean the difference between success and failure. For example, the Ground Attack spell is great for (you guessed it) dealing with land-based enemies.
Watch and learn
Some of the bosses in Gynoug are completely terrifying, largely because some of them occupy so much of the screen that it’s hard to know where you are safe. However, like all good guardians they follow patterns, so keep your eyes open and look for the right moment to attack.
Shoot the core
Bosses have weak areas which you need to focus your fire on to take them down. Listen for the telltale ‘boom’ sound effect which denotes you’re inflicting damage, as it’s not always obvious where the weak spot actually is.
take it easy
If you’re finding the game hard, drop to the options screen, select ‘Game Level’, hold down ‘A’, ‘B’ and ‘C’ and then press ‘Start’ for an easier mode. You can also access a level select by holding down ‘A’ on ‘Control’ for ten seconds.
