The F-Zero Climax wiki last edited by DeF on 08/20/14 09:12AM View full history

Overview

F-Zero Climax is the third game in the series for the Game Boy Advance and is, to date, the most recent F-Zero game. Like its predecessor, GP Legend, Climax was co-developed by Nintendo and SUZAK and is based on the anime of the same name.

Gameplay

The core gameplay is identical to that of the other 2D F-Zero games.

Like other F-Zero games, the player's booster unlocks at the start of the second lap. However, in Climax, the player also receives a "Super Boost" stock at the end of each lap. By pressing the booster button twice in succession, the machine gains an even stronger boost of speed at the cost of one stock.

The player can slide into turns or quickly shift to a side by using the shoulder buttons. Pressing L and R together executes a spin attack; the booster can be used to enhance this attack, as well.

Modes

Grand Prix

The main mode of the game. Players compete in five- or eight-track sets and attempt to place 1st.

Survival

The player take on a sequence of challenges, such as competing in a one lap race or staying above a certain speed limit. It consists of Tour, Challenge, and Battle.

Time Attack

The player can select a track from Grand Prix and race for the best time. It also includes the Zero Test, which challenges the player to complete a portion of track within a time limit.

Edit

This mode allows the player to create a track. The track can then be traded to friends using either the Link Cable or a password feature.

Communication

This allows up to four players to compete against each other.

Options

This mode lets players change the controls, and includes two galleries: one features the profile for racers and their machines, and the other contains episode summaries for the anime series.

Racers

In addition to featuring the entire cast of F-Zero X, this game adds characters based on the anime. The player starts with the four original F-Zero machines and Ryu Suzaku/Dragon Bird, and unlocks the rest by completing Grand Prix.
