[Episode 5] Freeing Dr. Curtis
After acquiring the means to operate Jamelgalda’s elevators, Acarno presses ahead in his effort to find and free Dr. Velter Curtis. Although the end of the mission is in sight, there are still a couple more foes in the way.
You must locate Dr. Curtis’ cell in order to free him and escape the prison, defeating Lady and Adidi Burago in the process.
You now have another boss to deal with, in the form of Lady – who is dressed as a dominatrix, because why not…
Around twenty shots with the ANTIQUE GUN should be enough to win the battle, but there are of course other weapons available. The dominatrix will stand and attack before moving to another spot on the platform in the form of a pink beam of light. Wait until she is stationary and fire off as many shots as you can until she moves again – repeat this process while staying out of reach of her whip. It’s worth noting that her whip attack will knock you off the platform is you are stood near an area that has no guard rail.
Before freeing Dr. Curtis, there are some items to collect. Ensure you have the PARRA JACKET and SPIKED BOOTS equipped and prepare for some jumping around on the floating pods which surround the platform on which you’re stood – note this section can be tricky, so it may be a good idea to save your progress.
The gun weapons are best for taking out Adidi, as they can be used from a slight distance which allows you to avoid his two attacks; a simple jab attack, and another move (during which he cannot sustain damage) which involves spinning around with his stick weapon while floating in the air and attempting to land blows on you. Don’t get too close, and when you notice Adidi “charging up” to spin around, jumping will help avoid his attacks. He also takes a breather after each attack, allowing you to land multiple shots at once with ease.
Adidi is not the strongest boss in terms of taking damage, and around eight or nine shots with the BIG MAGNUM or a good dousing with the FLAME THROWER should be enough to see him off.
