You're playing on normal right dude? Have you checked out some superplays for reference? http://www.super-play.co.uk/index.php?content=1

Question - when you fire up this baby, you get a screen with a box in the center, and a timer that counts down from 300.



Since I can't read Japanese, I have no idea what's happening here.



Anyone know?



So, I pressed 1p start, because I didn't know what else I was supposed to do, and got the the title screen. Hit start again, and it asked me to choose a difficulty level. No problem.



Then, I get to the next screen where I have to choose between two options, but of course, can't read them.



Anyone know what those are, and what the difference is in terms of gameplay?



Thanks,

Orri~

I used to play Gradius V, but I realize this is no fun. There is no "hook" to it in addition to nostalgia. The same as R - 1 and 2. R-Delta is a lot of fun (on easy), but three of the difficulties, oblique, and it is a by hard work.
