Hmmm...... it sounds just like every other side-scroller I used to play. Why is this one so very special? And yes, I'm a fuckingMondoz said:First off, your gaming history is severly lacking.
Now that this information is out of the way...
Gradius was an awesome series of side scrolling shoot-em-up games.
You collected powerups along the way that could be used to activate abilities.
One of these abilities was an 'option'. This was a little ball that would follow you around, and shoot when you shot.
It effectively doubled your firepower. You could have several of these, making you an unstoppable fighting force, terrible to behold.
Now, go - find your old consoles, buy, borrow, or steal a version of gradius, and rectify this horrible vaccum in your gaming experience.
