This is the Authentic Rom for Star Fox 2, found on the SNES Classic! Star Fox 2 continues the battle against Emperor Andross who seeks to conquer the Lylat system, with the Star Fox team assembled once again to defeat him. The game introduces a new semi-real time gameplay system, featuring new ship types and two new Star Fox team members.
The premise of Star Fox 2 is markedly different from its predecessor: Instead of following mostly linear paths inside predefined missions, the player moves a team of two ships freely around a map screen that represents the Lylat system. When the player’s ships make contact with enemy forces, the game switches to an action perspective, piloting the Arwing ship directly with controls and game play similar to the first Star Fox. When the player clears the specified objectives, he or she is taken back to the map screen to select a new destination.
The objective of the game is to destroy all enemy forces present in the map while defending planet Corneria (located in the lower left corner of the map), preventing its damage level from reaching 100% due to enemy attacks. To protect Corneria the player must intercept fighters and incoming IPBMs (Inter-Planetary Ballistic Missiles), while also dealing with the sources of these attacks: battleships, which will deploy more fighter squadrons, and planetary bases which fire IPBMs. To assist the player, General Pepper employs a satellite that can shoot down enemies on a limited basis — the player must also defend this installation from special enemies that can take over the satellite, and use its cannon to fire at Corneria. The player also encounters the Star Wolf mercenary team and various bosses throughout the game.
