About The Game
Legendary Wings is an arcade video game.
You fly a winged soldier over a Greek mythos style landscape. Shoot and bomb the attacking enemies. The game play switches between vertically scrolling shoot-em-up and horizontal platform levels.
Released in November 1986.
This game is known in Japan as "Ares No Tsubasa - The Legendary Soldiers".
Eric Bolduc holds the official record for this game with 612,500 points.
In Legendary Wings (Set 1), the main characters are replaced by men instead of women in "Ares No Tsubasa" and Legendary Wings (Set 2).
Tips and tricks
On each level, a trio of statues arranged in a triangular pattern will appear about three-quarters of the way through. Bomb them until one of them reveals a passageway (you'll have to bomb them all; it's not the same one every time), and fly into it. You'll now be in a cave, free to fly along and collect treasure chests worth 200 points apiece. When you're in the cave, though, don't shoot - if you fire and hit a treasure chest it's destroyed, and some of the cavern walls release enemies when shot.
Mouth's Stage Bug
At the final of each stage inside of the statue's mouth, you have to go upstairs to face a stage boss. You can avoid to confront him directly. To achieve this, go upstairs and walk slowly approximately to the middle of the platform. The music will change to the boss theme. Go back downstairs and stay on the middle platform. Keep shooting the screen at the opposite direction of the boss. He will be defeated in seconds this way, without any risk for your character.
