Menezis is a minigame found at the end of Rayman 2: The Great Escape on the PC. It is a basic space shooter where flying letters and numbers must be shot. It may be accessed if the player waits until the end of the game credits.
You control a flying 'E' that may shoot 'commas' by pressing the shoot button (the space bar) You can defend yourself from enemy fire by pressing the jump button (the A key). Doing this causes the letter E to grow in size, absorbing enemy bullets ('dots') without taking damage. You can only do this if you have enough 'exclamation marks' in the bottom right corner of the screen, as defending yourself costs one '!'. Additional '!s' can be earned by colliding with them when they appear on the playing field.
Your letter can only take 3 hits before your game is over. You can earn additional lives with every 100 points.
There are three kinds of enemies in this game:
- The letter 'X': these come in two types:A type which flies by and shoots bullets and a type which tries to 'kamikaze-fly' into you while shooting bullets.
- The letter 'O': these fire bullets in all directions, creating a spiral shape of bullets which you have to avoid with your E. These crawl by really slowly.
- The number '8':these reside at the far left of the screen while periodically shooting large amounts of bullets in a certain direction.
