The Verdict: No kidding! The little blue critter
takes an active fighting role! Miclus has the highest
Attack rating. The Miclus is amusing to look at when you play as him. As
an active character, Miclus flies like Superman, with his stubby arms in
front of him. You see Miclus banking left and right as you move in those
directions and flaps his little wings when moving up and down. Miclus does
not have a missile attack. As the Miclus' only weapon, he actually spits
out lethal fireballs from his mouth. Four of any power-up, "M" or "L,"
will fully power up Miclus' Fire Breath, which spreads out the higher Miclus'
power level is. The Miclus' Slaves are actually Fairies that fight alongside
Miclus. Miclus' Bomb attack is a devastating stream of fire that Miclus
breathes out. While Miclus is doing this attack, you can bend the stream
of fire left and right by moving in those directions. On some RF2 machines,
you don't need to do a joystick sequence to select the Miclus.
Pros: Extremely powerful firepower. "Bomb attack" not
only can kill all but the final boss in RF2 in one release, but it also
makes the Miclus invincible! Only requires four of any 'M' or 'L' power-up
to be at full power.
Cons: "Bomb attack" (actually a stream of flame) does
not destroy enemy bullets. This means your partner in a two-player game
is at high risk of being shot like a dog; he cannot use his bomb
while the Miclus is using his "Bomb attack." Miclus is most effective if
he approaches dangerously close to an enemy.
