    I have problems to liquidate the young woman in latex boots on the Statue of Liberty in stage 3-3 from the Sega Genesis / Mega Drive game Shadow Dancer. She is not a breeze, she is a strong and hard to beat enemy.
    Could anybody give me tips for eliminate the girl?
    I would be very grateful for every help.

    Here you can see a screenshot from the girl:

    from a faq:

    (3-3) Boss: Buzzsaw Babe
    This boss has two huge buzzsaw blades that block her head from your
    shurikens. Shoot at her head when it is exposed when she throw the
    buzzsaw to the ground, which will then roll at you. Simply time your
    jump over it and get as much hit on her head as you can. She will then
    jump off the screen and drop on you, which will not hurt you upon
    contact with her, but it will knock you around. Her head is small, so
    it's hard to hit it, but with some practice and your perseverance on
    finishing her, you will ultimately win.

    Well whatdya know, a Shadow Dancer thread on gbatemp [​IMG] This games just crying out for a remake. That shit takes me back quite a few years, i played it to death back in the old days. Was one of the 1st imports i got for the Megadrive and prolly one of the best games on the system aswell. Gotta love the music on the bonus stage [​IMG]

    All bosses in this game require you to learn the routine or you will die again and again. 1 hit kill makes it even harder though I forget if the Genesis version is 1 hit kill? Obviosuly not including power ups. I could finish this game back in the day with 1 life heh /brag
    So yeah, your best bet is to study her moves-dodge-attack.

    This one takes me back.
    It seems to have been taken care of but @Triforce a lot of the 16 bit eras best ninja-em ups (if that is not a genre it is now) appeared on the GBA and most were pretty good (at least there were in VBA).
