Star Dolphin is a Mission in Genesis: Part 2. This mission has the player(s) riding an Astrodelphis fitted with the Astrodelphis Starwing Saddle.

Overview[]

The goal of this mission is to get past Rockwell's defenses and defeat the boss at the end, while flying on an Astrodelphis. As the mission is heavily based on Star Fox, experience with that game can greatly help here.

Mission[]

Phase 1: Spoof the first firewall[]

As the level scrolls, you will pass by various enemies that are either stationary or moving around and trying to shoot you. Destroy as many of them as possible, as in doing so you will rack up points that you will need to unlock the gate at the end of the section (if you do not have enough, the Astrodelphis will crash into it and the mission will fail). Dodge obstacles and try to collect powerups (some are floating, others drop from enemies when destroyed), grenades and laser upgrades are very useful for destroying stronger enemies. Charging up a plasma ball and locking onto an enemy is a good way to score points.

Enemies:

Phase 2: Spoof the second firewall[]

Same as the first phase, but longer and requires even more points to open the second gate. Towards the end, there are blue lasers that will damage the Astrodelphis and a landed hover skiff that has more health than the other enemies but can be destroyed.

Enemies:

Phase 3: Defend the replication subsystem[]

From here on out, you are in open space. There is an Astrocetus in the middle, and enemies from which you must defend it. There are several waves; two pairs of hover skiffs will show up at different times to attack it, coming in with an impenetrable shield that disappears shortly after they appear, red and green comets show up from time to time that will hit the Astrocetus for big damage and must be destroyed, and in one of the later waves there will also be a pod of hostile Astrodelphis also trying to shoot the whale down. Destroy them as fast as you can, especially the comets as they will damage the whale a lot. Once the final wave is completed, the Astrocetus will fly away and the boss will show up to challenge you.

Protect:   Astrocetus

Enemies:

Phase 4: Defeat Androck[]

A different version of the Corrupted Master Controller will appear, and his four shields will protect him from damage. Destroy all of them with your lasers, and he will become vulnerable to damage for a time or until a threshold is reached, after which he will regain the shields. With each threshold (at around 2/3 and 1/3 of his max health respectively), the shields will require more damage to be destroyed. He has several attacks such as firing purple lasers from his eyes, and will use more different kinds the less health he has. Enemies will periodically spawn to attack you, and will sometimes drop valuable powerups such as health when destroyed.

Enemies:

The mission ends once the Corrupted Master Controller's health reaches 0. The results screen will tally your final score by adding your remaining health and time (the more, the better) before teleporting you back.
