I think Gileum is right. Staying close to the left side of the screen moving up a little when the slow blue center shot comes. Move back and forth when the rainbow coloured lasers appear but stay in the middle. And retract to the left most side of the screen when the little bombs appear.

BUT ... this is easy to find out on the flash screen with an indistructable mouse pointer over the image. It is way WAY harder in a real game when every little move of your ships means »Game Over«. I also like the music (it's take from a real game, isn't it?) and the use of sound effects.

So: Very well done! Loving it!

Ever made a shooter by yourself?

This would certainly be an awesome boss in an actual Gradius game. Certainly a difficult one, but I could still see ways to defeat it. Heck, I think one good strategy would be to stay close to the nosecone most of the time and keep your option units in front of it.

Stay in the middle, farthest back on the screen. Move up slightly when the central short blue laser comes your way. Unless something comes down the center that forces you to move more than a few inches, this boxx would be cake, no matter how flashy and laserific it is.

Destroy the core!

Going by its repeated gimmick of reflecting lasors, I'd be tempted to call it Refraction Core, or Reflector Core. Perhaps the wing interiors also reflect Vic Viper's laser weapon.

The music makes this feel like a laser show with the Boss Core being the Rave Machine!

This boss looks incredibly tough to destroy, especially if you don't have any power-ups with you!

Even with all your Options/Multiples with you, this boss is to be reckoned with.

I think its on medium difficulty, you can actually find a cozy sopt on some part of the screen to dsih out the pain on this fella!! Just for the love of the core I faved it!! now a question.... are the explosions really lotsa bullets or just some fancy fireworks you dont want to be close to??

I like how you prevented people from camping in front of it's face, but...

that's not much of a match in complexity for the Gradius Gaiden boss 3

I'd love to see it in action though,

Wow. That has to be the hardest boss in video game history! Next to the Joker in "Batman" for the NES

Are those white lines lasers? Or just background? Cuz if so it would be possible.

Also, COvered-Core all the way!!!

How on Earth are you supposed to defeat that? Will we ever see a flash of Vic standing up to this monster?

Reminds me a bit of the third boss in Super Gradius.
