Gradius 3 completed in Arcade mode.

Selected notes from author:
E. laser is used for the quick destruction of the bosses. Bonus stages were skipped for boringness and length.

Choosing Arcade-mode in options takes a while because you have to press A-button rapidly for a short moment.

This game also has some really good "engrish" in the epilogue when you beat the arcade-mode

This movie is similar in type to Morimoto's NES Gradius movie, except that Gradius 3 does not allow that many speed upgrades.

Category "uses passwords" is selected because the Arcade mode seems like a secret option in the game.
