You need JavaScript enabled to view it.) The Story so Far... ------------------- The year is 2017, In 1999 a monster earthquake devastated the entire Kanto region of Japan, thereby forcing Tokyo to move its government to a man-made island of about 115 square miles floating in Tokyo Bay. A cebtral computer controls public safety, traffic, and all other govermental functions on the island. In the middle of the island there is a huge school called the "National Belnar Institute" with over 105,400 students. This institute has yielded a number of excellent graduates worldwide. For some reason, unspeakable acts of evil have become increasingly common on this artificial island, in spite of the fact that it is supposed to be under the complete control of the central computer. Strangely enough, the incidents all began after a new Principal was assigned to the National Belnar Institute. Some people suspect that this was somehow related to the immeasurable evil that was spreading throughout the island. Now, a man by the name of Isato Kaiza has brought a stone that crystallizes fighting energy called the "Kaizer Stone" to the National Institute, to stand against the overwhelming evil as the Burning Hero "Gowcaizer".... The Controls ------------- Directional Pad = controls your characters movements Start Button = starts the game or enters a "challenger" if pressed on the other controller Select Button = Pauses/Resumes the game (A) Button = Weak Punch * (B) Button = Weak Kick * * = Default configuration (C) Button = Strong Punch * (D) Button = Strong Kick * NOTE: Depending on which button you choose your character with determines thier outfit's color. The primary and secondary colors are listed in each character's section. (A)+(B)+(C) Buttons = Taunting your enemy --O --O = Dash (pressing a button while dashing will produce a "Dash attack") O-- O-- = Hop Backward when beside opponent O-- or --O +(punch or kick) = Throwing opponent (NOTE: some characters have the ability to throw while in the air) Copyable Attacks ----------------- A new Feature in Gowcaizer is the ability to "copy" or imitate your opponent's moves once you have defeated them. Each character has a move that can be "copied" in this manner. After a succesful match, you will be shown your opponent's move and you will be asked wether or not you will like to have it or not. If you choose to accept the move, you will have it at your disposal in the next round and will continue to have it until you choose to accept another power. When continuing, you will be presented with the option of using ANY of the powers you have acquired thus far. Experimentation and implementation are the keys to success with the copyable moves. Hyper Copy Attacks ------------------- When you defeat your "mirror-image", you will have the option of acquiring their copyable attacks. But since you already possess all of their moves, you will have the chance to obtain the super Hyper version of your "copy" move. (ex. Karin beats another Karin, since Karin's copy move is the "Spirit Hair" which you already possess, the game will ask you if you want the "Hyper" verion of the move which in this case is the "Spirit Driver" which will allow you to do TWO Spirit Hairs!)

Below I will give brief descriptions of the them and tactics to use against them. P.Twins -------- P.Twins is actually 2 of Ohga's henchmen that "meld" into one hideous creature at the beginning of the round. It is rather strong and has 4 grabs and 4 special moves that you will become familiar with REALLY QUICKLY. Spin + Rapid Punches = It spins it's Arms in a circle rapidly, if any attacks connect while it is in the mode, the attacker will be spun around and then "rapid punched." Ground Slam = It picks you up and slams you on the ground repeatedly Grab and Punch = The "top" arms grab you and hold you in place while the "bottom" arms repeatedly punch you. Knee Slam = It Knee slams you several times. Rapid Punch = Self-explanatory Electric Charge = Lightning crackles around them and they charge forward with their fist. Note: they are temporarily invulnerable for a split second while the charge begins. Stretching Uppercut = The woman "half" stretches herself out from the central body at an upward angle to stop air attacks Graviton Thunder = A pillar of purple lightning appears in front of them and procedes forward stopping ALL land AND air attacks. Note: THIS MOVE IS COPYABLE. The best strategy against the P.Twins is to use long range attacks and to make sure you "combo" any normal moves that hit to get the most damage on them as possible. They are fairly "dumb" to some extent and will sometimes take hits by multiple projectiles before they ever block. The P.Twins love to corner you and will charge at you relentlessly until you are trapped in a corner while their "Graviton Thunder" ensures you dont jump over them. So the better you learn how to fight in "corners", the better you will do against the P.Twins. Beware of combos, the P.Twins are DEADLY with their combos. They can (and will) mix up several light punches or kicks into an "Electric Charge" for up to 85% damage (!). Their "Electric Charge" is probably their most potent and most used move. It can be easily comboed, it has very good range (about one "scaled in" screen length), and is almost instantaneous. On top of that, it renders them "invulnerable" for a split second right before the "charge". The P.Twins can (and will) use the charge right as a projectile approaches, and plow right through the projectile and hit you as you're recovering from the move (if you are close enough), its just that fast. They also will use it to knock you out of your "Desperation" move, or just after they've blocked it. However, the "Electric Charge" is not entirely invulnerable, you CAN hit the P.Twins out of it after they have started "moving" forward. This requires lightning fast reflexes and bit of luck to do, but it IS possible, just work on it (dont forget to combo it too!). Or you can just block it and immediately counter them afterwards. Ohga ----- Ohga is the Principle of the National Belnar Institute and he is TOUGH. He is insanely powerful and extrememly unforgiving of "errors" on the player's behalf. Ohga tranforms into an "angelic" being when doing certain moves. Grab and Throw = Ohga simply picks you up and throws you. Flaming Hold = Ohga picks you up with one hand and sets you ablaze while he is holding you. Self-Combustion = He ignites himself into flames. You can however hit him out of this move rather easily. Fireball = He sends out an enormous cresent-shaped fireball. Do NOT try to counter this with a fireball of your own because it will result in his fireball breaking up into several pieces that end up doing even more damage Teleport = He can teleport to anywhere on the screen rapidly and without warning. Rapid Punch = He charges forward with four punches. Block all four and then immediately counter him. Swipe = He delivers a low "swipe" that sets you up for a combo of either the uppercut, fireball, or charge attacks. Uppercut = He delivers a massive uppercut that hits from 4-7 times Angel Charge = His strongest move in which he glows white and charges at you slamming you into the other side of the screen The best tactic in fighting Ohga is to simply NEVER SCREW-UP. He always follows up on "missed" attacks and will SEVERLY hurt you. Use a "Hit & Run" approach and "counter" him whenever possible. He also does his "taunt" occasionally, it looks VERY similar to his "Self-Combustion" move as it is starting up but he never ingnites, sort of like a "fake" Self-Combustion. The instant you realize that he is doing his taunt and NOT a Self-Combustion, attack him! Make sure you lay a good hit (combo it if possible), because these chances dont come often! A Note About Copyable Moves ---------------------------- When using certain copyable moves against certain opponents, the CPU will react accordingly. It can make the CPU more agressive, defensive, airborne, ground based, or the like. For example, when you use Karin's "Spirit Hair", the CPU realizes that there are now TWO threats on the screen and it will either try to eliminate the "tiny fighter" or it will increase its assault on YOU in the hopes of eliminating you before you and the "tiny fighter" team up on him. Now, this can be both good and bad. If it tries to kill the tiny fighter first, use the opening as the go ahead for you to attack him. If it tries to kill YOU first, go defensive and wait for him to mess up and then counter him or wait for the tiny fighter (which the CPU is now ignoring) to lay a hit on the CPU and then follow it up and combo him! What you DONT want to do is to make an extremely offensive CPU even MORE offensive to the point that you can no longer defeat the CPU or you are having EXTREME difficulty doing so. This is where the "copyable" moves's benefits may not out-weigh the disadvantages. So be careful what you choose, but feel free to experiment with all of them, because only then will you truly realize the strengths and weaknesses of each one and how to use them to their full potential.
