Level-Headed: The Homerun of Death


Everyone, say hello to Gale Banballow. This is the main boss of HoD, and one creepy motherfucker. Heís a monstrosity that hobbles around on 2 disfigured legs, wielding a fucking flamethrower, all while you beat the shit out of him with his own sonís baseball bat. I couldnít make this up if I tried. After you defeat him in the baseball stadium, you come to a maze-like area of the basement, where you must escape from, while being chased by Gale. And, at any time, he can appear anywhere in the maze. Playing this as a kid, the maze and Gale together were the scariest things Iíd ever seen. At the end of the maze is a boiler room, where you once again fight Gale, and kill him.

Or so you think.

As you make your way back upstairs from the fight, the room you enter has the back wall ripped out, and you come face-to-face with a 3-story tall Gale, whoís even more terrifying than before. The ending of this level sucks, so I wonít bother you with it. But, the boss battles with Gale are sure memorable enough.

Like I said, never, ever, EVER play this game. This is the one Dreamcast game that, above all else, should be relegated to a dump out in the desert. Thankfully, there are ways of experiencing the best parts of the game without paying through it. And, boy, there are some awesome parts, to be sure. This ends another episode of Level-Headed. Thanks for coming, and have a happy Halloween, everyone!

My name is Pendelton (well, not really, but it sounds cool).
At one point in my life I spent a hell of a lot of time here. I came back for no real reason. Let's see if I can entertain like I used to.
Also, I've got a Destructoid tattoo. Ask me and I'll show you.

Hey, look! I've been on the front page a few times!
