Sexy Parodius (セクシーパロディウス) is a scrolling shooter arcade game. It is the fifth installment of the Parodius series produced by Konami. Like the rest of the series, it is a parody of the Gradius series and other Konami games. It is also the game containing the highest level of explicitly sexual level and enemy design and risque innuendo. Many level bosses are women in various erotic costumes (such as the "bunny costume" modeled on Playboy Bunnies) or states of undress.
Gameplay[edit | edit source]
The gameplay in Sexy Parodius is similar to the rest of the series, but with a new catch. Instead of just playing through each level and destroying enemies while avoiding getting hit, the player must also complete a special mission for each stage as well. Some of these missions range from collecting a certain amount of coins in a stage to destroying a certain object or enemies. Depending whether or not the player completes the mission will determine whether the player can continue to the next stage or what the next stage will be. In addition, instead of an alternating two-player game, both players now play simultaneously.
The playable characters in this game are:
- Vic Viper/Lord British
- Shooting Star/Black Viper
Music[edit | edit source]
Ports[edit | edit source]
Sexy Parodius was ported to the Sega Saturn and PlayStation and both versions were released on November 1, 1996 in Japan. These versions allow the Special Stage to be selected on the Title Screen after finishing the game with all conditions passed. They also come with unlimited continues (the game doesn't keep track of credits). The PlayStation version was also included in Parodius Portable (albeit with music from some stages replaced with other remixed classical songs) for the PlayStation Portable.
This is the last Parodius shoot'em up game, because next Parodius-related game, Paro Wars, is a strategy game like Cosmic Wars.
