Sparkster: Rocket Knight Adventures 2
|Release||February 22, 1994|
After the Kingdom of Zephyrus was rescued by Sparkster from the Devotindos Empire, the kingdom comes under attack once again, this time from the Gedol Empire led by King Gedol. Making matters worse, he has also dispatched Sparkster's rival, Axel Gear, to kidnap Princess Cherry, Princess Sherry's younger sister. Sparkster once again rockets into action to save Cherry and the Zephyrus Kingdom from King Gedol and his army of lizards.
Sparkster gameplay is very similar to its previous installament. The game largely functions as a 2D sidescrolling platformer, with an autoscrolling airship stage being the lone exception. Now the Rocket Pack is now self-charger,with a second power bar, however, unlike Rocket Knight Adventures and Sparkster, the player isn´t able do use the sonic boomerang.
A duel with Sparkster's arch rival Axel Gear occurs, much like in the first game.
The main difference between this game and the rest of the series is the inclusion of six secret swords hidden within the levels (as well as another earned by clearing the prologue level). A player who can obtain all seven will face the final boss as Gold Sparkster, similar to Super Sonic from Sonic The Hedgehog. Gold Sparkster hits harder than normal Sparkster and his rocket pack charges faster. However, unlike Super Sonic, he can still get hurt. To got the six secret swords, you need to be in Hard mode
Completing the game as Gold Sparkster is necessary if players want to see the 'True' ending. If the game is completed without transforming into Gold Sparkster, a message will appear saying 'Try Again.'
