• Before making a single edit, Tropedia EXPECTS our site policy and manual of style to be followed. Failure to do so may result in deletion of contributions and blocks of users who refuse to learn to do so. Our policies can be reviewed here.
  • All images MUST now have proper attribution, those who neglect to assign at least the "fair use" licensing to an image may have it deleted. All new pages should use the preloadable templates feature on the edit page to add the appropriate basic page markup. Pages that don't do this will be subject to deletion, with or without explanation.
  • All new trope pages will be made with the "Trope Workshop" found on the "Troper Tools" menu and worked on until they have at least three examples. The Trope workshop specific templates can then be removed and it will be regarded as a regular trope page after being moved to the Main namespace. THIS SHOULD BE WORKING NOW, REPORT ANY ISSUES TO Janna2000, SelfCloak or RRabbit42. DON'T MAKE PAGES MANUALLY UNLESS A TEMPLATE IS BROKEN, AND REPORT IT THAT IS THE CASE. PAGES WILL BE DELETED OTHERWISE IF THEY ARE MISSING BASIC MARKUP.

Warning Forever is a Bullet Hell game developed by Japanese freeware programmer Hikoza T. Ohkubo available for download here. In the game, you play as the pilot of a starfighter tasked with defeating an endless series of enemy bosses. The game is notable in that the enemies actively adapt to your tactics; if you've been focusing on destroying one particular segment, expect that segment to be reinforced. Likewise, if a certain weapon kills you, expect more of that weapon in the next form.

It also inspired the real-time tactical game Battleships Forever and the Xbox Live Indie Games title Infinity Danger.

Tropes used in Warning Forever include:

  • Adaptive Ability
  • Beam Spam
  • Boss Game
  • Boss Subtitles - Of course!
  • Bullet Hell
  • Cognizant Limbs - The different sections of the bosses are all individually destructible.
  • Collision Damage: Oh yes. Gets real bad when the boss evolves into something HUGE.
  • Death in All Directions - Including:
  • Deflector Shields: in higher evolutions the boss can surround segments in a glowing field that makes the segment indestructible (although this may also may be a kind of power armor rather than a shield).
  • Dynamic Difficulty
  • Endless Game: In theory, anyway. Eventually the enemy ship will get so big you'll die multiple times just from having it come on screen, let alone fire, which is basically game over.
  • Frickin' Laser Beams
  • Guide Dang It: How to get the boss to evolve into the "ISE-ONE" form. You have to kill the top/bottom two "corners" before killing off the core of a form WITHOUT hitting the bottom/top two, so that the top/bottom will evolve into an "armor" form. Then you have to do the same with the other side, again NOT hitting the (already evolved) opposite side.
    • If done correctly, both top and bottom sides will have the "armor" form, which will eventually make the boss evolve into the ISE-ONE.
  • Names to Run Away From Really Fast - The early ships have simple names like "The Wider" or "The Attacker", but as it evolves, you end up with "The Berserker", "The Armageddon", or the "Giga-Beamed Hammerhead Hell"
  • Painfully-Slow Projectile - But as the game goes on, there's an awful lot of 'em.
  • Shoot'Em Up
  • Spread Shot: Bosses have a regular variety (Cannon), while your ship has an aim-able Spray Burst.
  • Timed Mission - One mode of gameplay gives you a timer to beat. If you destroy the boss fast enough, you can gain time for the next level.
  • Up to Eleven- Just how outrageous can the ships get? No, more than that.
  • Video Game Lives - Another mode of gameplay gives you three lives, with the opportunity to gain more as you destroy parts.
