The energy bas consumed for auto-shield variates on the difficulty chosen. the 2nd function of the energy system deploying SP attacks, which can cancel bullets for gold gems, and when killing enemies with the SP attack, white gems will spawn, which can increase faster a weapon`s level.

True Last Boss / TLB

In order to trigger Crisis Gear (the TLB), the player must make the ship`s level reach lvl. 100 before beating Master Gear Divine.


Ever since the defeat of the oracle, the two fighters ascended into celestial beings.

Their ascension caused a phenomenon causing humans to praise them as deities.

As an apology, the oracle's daughter sent a gift known as Gearnium, a metal containing evolutionary powers, in order to befriend the humans.

However, this metal was a parasite, which enslaved human minds, and eventually caused them to 'Ascend'.

Those who followed these deities became monsters. Those who refused were murdered.

A majority of the human race serves these deities. Those who followed them were known as the enlightened.

Now, in a last ditch effort, rebellious humans refined a piece of Gearnium to contain the same traits as the legendary Blaster Gear.

The Rose Gear was built, and only two were made before the enlightened invaded the underground colony.

The sigil is set. Your fate is bound. The Crisis Rose has now bloomed.
