METAL WARRIORS (SNES) 

Mission #1: Rescue at Axis 5

Objective: Locate agent Marissa and get out of the enemy base as fast as you 
can.

From the beginning, fly right until you get to some elevator platforms. Go down 
one level and then go right until you can't go any further.  Shoot down through 
the floor and then continue to go right.
Fly up the opening you come to and go right to an orange wall.  Wait a few 
seconds and the enemy to the right of the wall will blast an opening in it.  Now 
go right and destroy the cannon.
Continue right along the lower path to a big room full of orange blocks.  Shoot 
your way through the blocks to the lower left corner of the room to find 
Marissa. After picking her up, fly straight to the left (shoot through the 
orange blocks) until the mission ends. There is no boss in this level.

Mission #2: Boarding Party

Objective: Seize control of the enemy ship.
 
Go right from the start and drop down the first pit.  Continue right along the 
upper path until you get to a big room full of missiles.  Exit  out the room on 
the right side (use your map(1)). Continue following the path to the right until 
you get to a section that is too short for your metal warrior to fit.  
At that point, jump out of the warrior (press select) and go right until the 
mission ends. There is no boss in this level.

Mission #3: War on the Rock

Objective: Secure the enemy base.

Go right from the start until you get to a vertical shaft.  Fly to the top of 
that shaft and go right.
Shoot down through the orange platforms and then go to the right until you get 
to a cannon on a ledge above you.  Shoot the cannon and go to the right from it.  
Drop down and jump out of your metal warrior.  Fly to the right and shut off the 
"On" switch.  Now get back in your metal warrior and fly to the top of the 
shaft.  Go to the right until you get a message that says you've captured the 
central computer. You must now protect the Central Computer Core.    

Mini boss: Central Power Core
There are 5 core generators on the wall (they are numbered 1-5 and look like 
orange circles with a glowing dot in the center).  You must protect at least 1 
of them from the enemies that are flying around (about 15 of them) until you are 
told "Good work, now go to the hangar". 

After saving the core, shut off the "On" switch at the bottom of the room and 
then follow the lower left path until you find a life power-up.  Ride the 
elevator up 1 level and go left until you get to the gun turrets on the enemy 
drop ship.
 
Boss: Enemy Drop Ship
Shoot the 3 gun turrets on the top of the ship, then get out of the robot, drop 
down into the ship, and go to the right side of the ship where it says "Ship 
Com".  When you are told to guide the ship back into the base, just push right 
on the control pad to move the ship until it stops.  

Mission #4: Ship Defense

Objective: Protect the mother ship from all of the attacking enemy warriors.

You are on a spaceship in a Prometheus robot.  You must protect the space ship 
from the attacking robots.  If too much damage is done to the main part of the 
ship, you lose.  Just shoot all the enemies as they appear.  Keep defeating them 
until the stage ends, about 25 enemies that you must defeat. 

Mission #5: Frontal Assault

Objective:  Find and destroy the huge ground defense cannon. 

Go right from the start until you get to some railroad tracks.  Shoot down 
through them and drop to the ice level below.  Look carefully on the ice for a 
section with cracks in it and shoot down through that part of the ice.  Drop 
down and go left until you find a place that you can shoot down through the 
floor. Drop down again and start going right until you come to an elevator. Ride 
it up 1 level and then go right until you come to a small narrow passage. Jump 
out of your warrior and fly right and up until you see an empty warrior above 
you. Fly left, up, right, and then down to get to that warrior and enter it. 
Drop to the floor and go left to an elevator. Ride it to the top, go right, and 
up through the opening. Shoot the orange barrier on the left until it 
disappears. Then get out of the warrior and shut off the "On" switch. Now move 
to the left to find the boss, The Ground Defense Cannon.

Boss: Ground Defense Cannon 
The only part that you must hit on the cannon is the glowing orange spot in the 
center. The best advice is to shoot the small round spots below the center of 
the cannon so that they stop shooting out the little grenades. Then concentrate 
on the orange spot.  

Mission #6: Inferno

Objective:  Locate and steal the enemy's new combat unit in the underground 
research facility.

From start fly right until you can drop down an opening to some yellow blocks.

the right and down and turn off the "On" switch on the left to open the yellow 
blocks. Fly back into your warrior and drop down to the very bottom. Go right to 
an elevator shaft and drop to the bottom. Go all the way to the right and then 
fly up and continue to the right until you drop down, Shoot through the wall to 
the right to an elevator. Go up 1 level and continue going straight to the right 
until you get to a narrow opening. Get out of your warrior and fly through that 
opening until you come to a ballistic warrior. Enter that warrior and continue 
right and down to the lower right corner of the area to find the underground 
base.  Once you are in the underground base, go right and fly up the first 
opening. Go left and turn off the "On" switch. Now go right past the elevator to 
4 yellow blocks. Wait a few seconds and they will disappear. Drop down to the 
very bottom, get out of your warrior, and go through the narrow opening to the 
left. Go to the far left and turn Off the "On" switch. Now return to your 
warrior and go to the right. Shoot the floor to find a section you can drop down 
through and then go to the left.
Carefully go past the electrical barriers and shoot through the next section of 
floor to drop down one level. Now go to the right until you get to a large 
yellow elevator. Use the elevator to get around the right side of it and 
continue to the right to another yellow elevator. Ride it up 1 level and go 
right to another yellow elevator. Take it down 1 level and go right to a gray 
elevator. Ride it to the top, go left to another elevator, ride it to the top, 
and go to the left. Ride the next elevator to the right up 1 level. Now go left, 
up, and then right until you get to the boss, the Drache.
 
Boss: The Enemy Drache
Fly around to avoid being hit and shoot the Drache as often as possible. If you 
get close to the enemy, use the laser sword instead of the gun.

After defeating the boss, fly down through the hole in the lava below, jump out 
of your warrior, and go to the right. When you see the Drache warrior, climb 
into it and fly straight up to finish the mission. After getting the Drache 
warrior, fly straight up to the top of the shaft and go right through the first 
opening. Go all the way to the right, then all the way up, then left to 4 yellow 
blocks. Place the Drache in the opening in the upper left, exit the warrior, and 
fly to the left. Look for an opening going down that is just big enough for your 
character to fit in. Drop to the bottom and enter the Havoc warrior. Now shoot 
the wall to the right of the "On" switch. Get out of the Havoc and turn off the 
switch. Get back in the Havoc and jump up through where the 4 yellow blocks 
were. Go up and over the hill to the right and then drop down to a gray walkway 
that you can shoot through. Drop down, exit the Havoc, and fly to the right. Fly 
right and turn off the "On" switch. Now drop to the left and turn off the 2 "On" 
switches. Now fly to the right and then straight up to return to the Drache 
warrior. Enter it and fly down and then left. Shoot down through the floor and 
go down. Take the first path on the left, then the first path going up. Fly 
straight up into the sky until you can't go any further. Then fly to the left 
until the mission ends.

and turn off the "On" switch to the right. Get back in the warrior, go up, and 
take the first path on the right. Work your way up to the upper left corner of 
the room and then work your way up a shaft where blocks are sliding back and 
forth through the walls. At the top, turn off the "On" switch and then go 
through the door that opened. Go up and follow the path right to the second set 
of orange blocks. Exit the warrior and fly up through the narrow opening to find 
a Havoc warrior. Follow the path all the way to the left and then shoot up 
through the blocks with X's in them. Jump up as far as you can go and then head

underground Base. From the beginning of the Underground Base, go all the way to 
the right until you get to an "On" switch. Turn it off and then go to the upper 
left corner and go through the door that opened. Now wait until you see some 
blocks appear from the walls and use them to work your way up as high as you can 
go. Then work to the left and drop down a long shaft. Turn off the "On" switch 
and go through the door. Work your way to the left and then up the shaft. Then 
go right until you come to some orange blocks in the floor. Shoot down through 
the blocks and then follow the path to the left until you come to the Boss -  
the large green robot.  

Boss: Large Green Robot
Because it has a huge gun and flies around the entire room, there are no tricks 
or safe spots.
Just shoot fast and use your shield a lot. The Havoc robot is a better choice 
than the Prometheus.
However, if you can get to the boss and use 1 as a back-up, you will stand a 
better chance. After defeating the boss, exit the warrior and go through the 
small opening in the lower right. Fly up to the top and enter the Nitro warrior. 
Now fly straight up until the mission ends. 

CONGRATULATIONS!!!
