X-Men 2: The Game Master's Legacy System: Sega Game Gear Author: barney_killer Version: 1.1 Date: 10/30/2003 I'm writing this guide because I saw no other ones on the Internet for this game. X-Men The Gamemaster's Legacy for sega game gear is a pretty good game. I hope you find this FAQ walkthrough useful. Maybe this will make the game more fun for you. *Characters* There are a couple of key things to think about. The A button is punch. The B button is Jump. The Start button toggles your mutant power on and off. Yes, it is stupid to have a mutant power meter, but there are some impressive powers that make up for it. Storm/Jean/Rouge can all fly if you turn on their mutant power (Start button), jump in the air, then hit jump again. You'll fly until you hit jump again, land on the ground, or turn off your mutant power. Storm/Jean/Cyclops/Bishop/Gambit will shoot some form of projectile when you punch while the mutant power is on. Rouge can use her mutant power to increase her strength a great deal. Her strength only lasts while her mutant power is turned on, but using her super strength doesn't seem to drain her mutant power. Flying will drain her power as it does to Storm/Jean. Bishop has the best power in the game. He can absorb nearly any energy blast directed at him. This power is on wheter your mutant power is turned on or not. He uses attacks against him to charge up his mutant power and throw it back at his enemies. Physical damage, some bosses, and certain lasers in Jean's level can hurt him. Also, if you have a full mutant energy bar and absorb any more energy, it can overload you and take your mutant bar down to nothing. Try keeping it a tad under full most of the time. Other than that, he is golden. *Levels* These are the order in which I did the levels. You can feel free to vary a bit, but to follow my strategies you will need to rescue some characters before others. I have placed the name of the mutant I suggest using inside the [ ] next to the level name. *Bishop's Level [Storm] *– This level is a cake walk to finish. It's a pity, as it also has some of the better music in the game. Just fly over the entire level heading to the right. You will receive plenty of powerups to keep you in the air and healthy. Don't fly much above the sky line or you'll run out of mutant power and/or an enemy will attack you up there. The boss is ridiculously easy to beat. All you have to do is fly past him, land, then start shooting him with your mutant power. He shoots a blast that knocks you backward. Just don't let yourself get shoved off into the pit and you'll waste him easily. *Rouge's Level [Bishop]* – Here you will have a stark contrast to the easy of the last one. This time finding the boss is the real problem. The way I found him was to go right and go down the stairs a few flights. Then head to the left. If I walked by an elevator I knew I needed to go back to the right and down a little further. If you go down to far, you will run into a wall where you will see open area on the other side. It looks like a log drop with ledges. Just keep going up a level, heading left, until you find an opening. If you see wrecking balls below you, you should be able to go right, then down, then left to get in. The opening you need to find is entered from the left. It will lead to a darker area with some wrecking balls that swing and some axes that go up and down. Nothing to major and no enemies, but be aware that your health will not be restored much before the boss battle. Be patient and careful. Just as you reach the boss, before you jump down, you can jump up to the left and after a couple platforms you'll find a heart to recharge. This boss is a close range, slow fighter. He has a hard time hitting you, but you are royally @#$#ed if he does. Fire your gun at him until you exhaust your power, then wait until after he throws a punch and nail him with one of your own before he throws another. Watch out for his jumping around so he doesn't hit you, when he lands from a jump, you can easily get 2-3 punches in on him. Repeat the pattern until he is dead. *Wolverine's Level [Rouge] *– Now you find out why you went to all the trouble to get Rouge. This will be the first and only time you use her, but here she is a big time saver. Start off going through the portal (stand in front of it and hit Up). When you get to the destination, click Up again. Keep heading around and go through portals to find the boss. It is usually the first one you come across that you need to enter. The level is pretty straight forward, not nearly as bad as Rouge's level. The boss here is EXTREMELY tough. That isn't to say he's hard, but he has a large amount of life and attacks often. Be sure you have full health or nearly full when you go in. Rouge's extreme strength is perfect to nail this one. If you use someone else you have to punch, dodge, punch, etc. With Rouge you will only need to follow him to the left corner (punch him for good measure along the way) then crouch and get just the right distance so you can hit him as he moves, hit him has he shoots, hit him all the time. It's not hard to find the distance, just stay just beyond his walking and you'll kill him well before he kills you. *Gambit's Level [Bishop] *– We return again to the linear left to right level. All you need to do is make it to the farthest right and you fight an enemy. There are A LOT of guns here. It will be very difficult with one of the other mutants. As a general rule, go as high as possible as you walk through. For the boss, try to have as much life as possible here. You can dodge and fight, but a straight out slug match is the quickest way. Just unload all your ammo into him, then go up and start punching him. He'll throw tornadoes at you that you could jump over, but it's not worth it. Just make sure you aren't under him when he jumps on you and you'll win by punching him to death. *Jean Grey's Level [Bishop] *– You've probably gotten pretty used to taking all the hits with Bishop, eh? Well don't get too comfortable. This level houses the only lasers that can harm him (a glitch maybe). There are some lasers built into the platforms, they can't be destroyed, they will hurt him. Just jump or avoid them, they aren't that much of a threat. The level is a maze. You should go down and right until you find an elevator. Take it up, avoiding guns, then jump up and left, then go up further, then head right. You can then go right to the edge, go down a bit, then work your way back to the left until you find another elevator. That's the key part, take that one down (or jump down to avoid most gunfire), then go up the next one, then down and left and you've reached the boss. Bishop was made to take this guy out. This boss just fires lasers. Yes, they are the kind Bishop can absorb! I like to climb under the lower platform. The only way the guy will hit you there is if you let him fly into you. Not only can you blast him from there, but you should easily be able to figure out where to sit so you can punch him all the time. He goes down without much effort. *Apocalypse's Level [Jean] *– You can really use any character but Wolverine or Rouge here, though I'd suggest Jean. The only enemies use close attacks so Gambit should be perfect with his long normal attack reach, but the controls are too unresponsive to guarantee it will work. If you take a flier you can go down the hole at the first temple (area in the middle of the temple) and avoid a few birds. Just remember to turn on mutant power before you go down and be read to fly, or you'll take some fall damage. Oh, if you need energy there are plenty of powerups on the roof of the temples before you go down. The second temple entrance leads closer to where you have to start out. It might be easier to tell you from there, so I'll assume you took the second. Go down the second entrance and then go down a level and head right until you are as far as you can go. You will see an elevator (if not go further down, then further right). Take it down and try each level it goes by. You'll find powerups at the very least and finally you'll find a switch. Flip the switch and you're almost done. Go up to the top of the elevator (the top, there's a lower one right below it). This is why a flier comes in handy. You can do it faster. Make your way all the way to the lower left of the map. Start heading right until you find an elevator like the ones you saw before. The wall just to the right of it is now semi-transparent. You can enter there to fight Apocalypse. To say this boss is the easiest one is an understatement. Just jump out of his chamber and shoot him from a distance. If you only shoot him when he's solid, you'll kill him with mutant power to spare and you never take a scratch from him. ****SECRET CHARACTER**** Apocalypse's level also houses a secret character! Cable has been captured by Apocalypse and you can get him on your team. There really isn't much reason to go for him since the easiest way to do the rest of the game is with Bishop, but it's still fun to have them all. To get him you will have to go in as Cyclops. He is the only one of the X-Men who can shot directly upwards. Once you've gone down the hole into the level, go as far up and left and you will see the feet of a character. This is the chamber that Cable is being held in. What you'll need to do is walk all the way to the right most wall of that chamber and shoot up with your optic blasts. That will destroy the wall and you can jump up through it into the chamber. Just walk over to the left until you touch Cable and he is yours. The other nice touch is you'll pick up a heart and a mutant power for your efforts. You can now use Cable when you get back to the character select screen. *???'s Level [Bishop] *– Lasers on all sides, everything shooting, you'll have a free recharge party on your hands. Make it to an elevator in about the middle of the level and ride it up. I'm not sure this boss' name, but DO NOT SIT ON THAT ELEVATOR. He will roast you like a turkey. This boss has Bishop's mutant power. Only physical damage can harm him. Your gun will be useless. For some reason, if you stand up you will not be able to take his blasts, but if you crouch you will absorb it. Just crouch and hit him, moving away so he doesn't' walk into you. Do this for a while and you have him beat. *Game Master's Level [Bishop]* – Run around in the level heading right. You will have to look around, but the boss is towards the bottom and the middle. It's deja vu time. The Game Master (I assume that's who this is) is just like the very first boss you fought. He will throw you back with his blast. I usually just took the hit, jumped over him, then shot/punched him, repeated until he was dead. As long as you don't let him touch you, you'll have plenty of life. You should still be OK if you take a few hits. He's not a hard boss. You're done. You have defeated the game.
