GR_DIUS is a Gradius ROM hack which removes
all traces of the player from the game. There is no ship
to be seen, no bullets, and no additional weapons or shields.
The only evidence still hinting at your possible presence
are the residual effects on the waves of enemies as they
rush through empty space. The ROM contained in the zip
file below should be playable on any NES emulator or on
the actual NES hardware itself (with some simple cartridge
hacking). Alternately, you can download the IPS patch below
and apply it to the original Gradius yourself. Released and
placed 2nd in the Wild Compo at Blockparty 2007. Watch a video of the first stage.
