Gameplay Edit

Darius II Edit

Steel Spin uses a ring of orbs to protect himself, compensating for his low defenses. While his whole body is vulnerable, you must bypass the orbs or destroy them first to damage him. He can spread the orbs to cover a wider area around him and will also attack by shooting his needles, a mouth laser and homing missiles. You can either stay a safe distance in front of him or attempt to get close in order to defeat him faster.

Super Darius / Super Darius II Edit

He hasn't the orb shields and the horming missiles but is "bigger" and (in Super Darius) tougher than before, because the screen size and the speed of bullets makes more difficult the avoiding. You still can shot his body to destroy him.
