Tips and tricks

For alternate costume colours press B or C when selecting a character.


World Heroes 2 Jet is a very fun game, but only has 4 different endings available. Here is how to get each of these :

Ending 1 - Beat Zeus in 'Tournament Mode' in the second or third round with 25% of remaining energy or less in your character's lifebar.

Ending 2 - Beat Zeus in 'Tournament Mode' in the second or third round with 75% of remaining energy in your character's lifebar.

Ending 3 - Get a 'Perfect' against Zeus in 'Tournament Mode' in the second or third round (This is the true ending, since the developer's credits will appear only in this one!).

Ending 4 - Defeat 4 opponents in 'The Forging of Warriors Mode' to see this ending.
