Description

Scene 6: Hangar Bay Max runs right through a central atmosphere hatch, before he realizes that he's wandered onto the Quad fighter Hangar Bay. The Noir Dyne soldiers try to outflank Max in order to overwhelm him with their numbers, so make sure to take out as many soldiers as possible in order to break up their formations. Max takes a couple of hard hits but keeps on going. There will be plenty of time for him to lick his wounds when he's inside a Quad fighter, but he can't pay attention to his health just yet. Those Noir Dyne soldiers travel in packs, so get to know the direction they run. If Max takes a lethal shot in the back, you'll have to be more diligent the next time around. When Max gets the Quad fighter, he's almost free, but those big guns aren't for decoration. There's no doubt about it, this level is hard. It's more due to the mouse control difficulties and poor hit detection rather than the actual game itself. Adding on top of it Noir Dyne soldiers flying and running all over the place makes it all a bit of a nightmare. Not as difficult as what is in store in later levels though... Again I love the ending to this - a bit random that you only have to take out one gun, but enough to surprise you if you're not careful. And I love how everyone disperses into blood droplets with weirdo squelching noises - I suppose if Max's blaster can blow up fighters, it stands to reason it can disintegrate people too!
