VectorMan 2 Sega Genesis by Jman (firstname.lastname@example.org) Walkthrough Guide Table Of Contents I. Introduction II. Controls III. Walkthrough IV. Cheats V. Credits and Legal Information I. Introduction Welcome to my FAQ! VectorMan 2 is a great 2d shooter for the Sega Genesis. That game is a lot of fun to play, with some pretty nifty game ideas. Anyway, the plot: VectorMan is flying his ship and gets hit by an unknown foe. He has to abadon his ship only to find that the world is now inhabited with giant mutantic bugs. VectorMan now has to save Earth... again! Version History: V1.0 (January 13, 2002) - Everything is new. Expect a few more updates after this one. What to expect in next version: - More "vital" information - Clearer walkthroughs - Walkthroughs for levels that have none II. Controls Control Pad - Move VectorMan, direct the fire of his attacks A, B button - Fire your weapon (NOTE: depends on powerup) C Button - Jump(press again after Jump to Double Jump) Start - Pause Game III. Walkthrough (NOTE: This walkthrough is only to guide you through the level and find the exit, not necessarily to collect every item, destroy every powersac, or find every photon. I may add another section later on if I feel like it with this information. Also, this guide assumes you will kill enemies you encounter and pick up obvious powersacs and photons) Scene 1 - Geronimo Vital Information: Photons - Powersacs - 0 Walkthrough: This level is pretty easy. Float your way down to the surface by following the path of photons. Kill the bugs that get close to you (TIP: Hold in C to hover VectorMan, this is useful in shooting bugs and aiming). You shouldn't have much trouble. Scene 2 - Vital Information: Photons - Powersacs - Walkthrough: From the start, travel right to the first pillar where you will fall down a hole. Head right, you will pass a moving platform, until you pass 3 Powerpods. There should be a dead end to the right of the third powerpod. Wait for the moving platform to come down and jump onto it. Wait till it gets as high as it can go and double jump out of the hole. Go right again. When you reach a bunch of photons in a "V" shape, there will be a hole underneath them. Fall down that hole and continue to follow the path that you can go(you can only go one way). When you are able to go left and right, head left. When you see more mushrooms, jump on the first one, and double jump to the topmost right-hand corner. Blast down the wall and destroy the powerpod at the end of the tunnel. This powerpod contains an extra life. Retrace your steps and go right. You should find another platform down the tunnel, jump onto it, double jump out of the hole to the right and you've completed the stage! Scene 3 - Bog Jam Vital Information: Photons - Powersacs - Walkthrough: This is a pretty long level, and this walkthrough is pretty confusing. I'll try my best, though. Jump on the first branch of the first tree you see to the right. "Climb" up the tree until its not possible for you to go any higher. Jump to the right (double jump) and land on a crooked branch. Continue up this tree, until you see a branch that connects two trees ("bridge"). On that branch, jump left and land on another "bridge". Head left and double jump to the branch above it. Double jump over to a pair of upside down crooked branches. Double Jump to the left. Double jump to the right and climb up it until you reach another "bridge" branch. Go up by jumping on the alternating trees until you reach 2 parallel "bridges". Go right until you finish the stage(there's a powersac along the way, partially covered by moss, it contains an extra life). Scene 4 - In Blackest Night Boss Match # 1 Destroy these two heads by shooting them. Beware to not touch them. This boss shouldn't be too bad. Scene 5 - Fired Vital Information: Photons - Powersacs - Walkthrough: This is a pretty straightforward level. Just continue right, avoiding bug attacks and the lava (TIP: if you collect the scorpion power-up, you can walk on the lava). You should climb up a "mountain" and go down it along the way. Bonus Level - Tubular After Scene 5, you will be taken to a bonus level. Attack the bugs with your ship as you fly through a tube. Collect as many photons as you can and rack up a high score. The more "clocks" you collect, the more time you will have. If you do well enough, you will eventually finish the Bonus level like any of the other stages. This is a great way to get extra lives and points. Scene 6 - Magma P.I. Vital Information: Photons - Powersacs - Walkthrough: At the start, climb up until you reach the top of the mountain. Head right and fall down when you see a lava waterfall. When you back to the bottom, journey to the right. Climb up a small mound, and you will see some rock blocking your path on the top of the hill. Jump and shoot downwards to open the hole up and fall down and head to the right to finish this stage. Scene 7 - Turn Up the Heat Boss Battle # 3 This level is pretty hard. This lava monster will charge move in one direction so shoot it a few times and jump. DON'T get caught in the corner and don't land in the lava. After a few hits, it will go down. Scene 8 - Orbit Express Vital Information: Photons - Powersacs - Walkthrough: This is the first skating level. Obviously, you're on skates and move much quicker than on foot. All skating levels are short, but not necessarily easy. Skate your way to the right, the entire level, trying to avoid getting hit by the flying and jumping bugs. Scene 9 - Dirty Job Vital Information: Photons - Powersacs - Walkthrough: Travel to the right until you're on top of a dirt mound. Jump and shoot downwards and carve a path below you. Do the same on the next dirt mound and then make a path to the right. It gets a little tricky after this. Make a path upward, using the metal platforms to help you. Go to the right and go to the open platform to end the level. Scene 10 - Vectorman 1 2 3 Vital Information: Photons - Powersacs - Walkthrough: This is another skating level, second so far. Keep going right and avoid the bugs. Scene 11 - I can dig it Vital Information: Photons - Powersacs - Walkthrough: From the get-go, shoot your way to the right. When you reach a clearing in the rocks, fall down. Shoot your way to the right and you'll reach a small opening. Stand there and thats the end of the level. Scene 12 - Rollerderby Vital Information: Photons - Powersacs - Walkthrough: Another skating level. Use the same strategy as the first two and head right. Scene 13 - Mist Chances Vital Information: Photons - Powersacs - Walkthrough: You'll be falling in the beginning. When you land, go to the right and pass green rocks in the ground. Jump on the wall to the right of them. Jump up to the left and head go up a series of platforms until you reach the top level. Go right and hop to the left. Go up another series of platforms to jump up towards the right to reach a new level. Go right to finish the level. The following levels' walkthroughs coming soon!
