Other stuff: How Do I Beat The Macross??!! In Isamu Mission 8 you only have to worry about the Red Homing Beams. When the Warning comes up for incoming attack, thrust left or right then work your way down and shoot chaffs. If done correctly you can escape the 1st attack with no damage. After Defeating the Neo Glaug the Macross will shoot the Red Homing Beams again. Use thrust, dodge and chaffs, granted you will get hit cause of the reload time on the chaffs once you run out. Just try and stay alive as long as possible. Crazy right angle turns. In a Dog Fight... one DSS puts you on your enemy's tail. Sometimes your Enemy might all of a sudden take a nose dive or shoot staight up. Unrealistic?? Physics isn't something Games or Anime deal with, and this is a combo of both. Mission Levels. Battroid Levels are just a Boxed in area and Fighter Levels are the same but the box isn't seen. When you reach the edge of a level you automaticly turn around and face the direction of your enemy. Weird Sounds. On the Story-mode Select Screen with the normal voices in the background, beeps and sound effects. Wait a while... new Sounds will happen, such as a computer being accessed, a chipmunk voice talking really fast, machines moving and 2 long hums. More to come.... This FAQ ©2000.
