Naturally, before you can destroy all forty ships in each of the three bonus waves, you have to get that far. Also, it helps to have the double-fire weapon addition.

The biggest help, however, is knowing where the ships for the bonus rounds come in and exit the screen, to help you position your ship. The following hints make use of the "clock face" notation to indicate a relative position on the screen. Twelve o'clock, as well as three, six and nine are easy to figure out. When the notes below indicate "seven o'clock", I mean "slightly clockwise of the six position, or slightly counterclockwise of the 'down-left' position" (think diagonal down on the D-pad).

Neptune:

Wave 1: 8 o'clock
Wave 2: 6 o'clock
Wave 3: 4 o'clock
Wave 4: 6 o'clock again

Uranus:

Wave 1: the first set can be shot down at 8 o'clock, then move to 7 o'clock to kill the other five ships.
Wave 2: 6 o'clock
Wave 3: the first five are best met at 4 o'clock, then move to 5 o'clock to finish off the rest.
Wave 4: 6 o'clock does the trick once more

Saturn:

Wave 1: 9 o'clock
Wave 2: the ships enter nearest 6 o'clock, then figure eight off the top of the screen at 12 o'clock--move there if you haven't finished them off at the bottom of the screen.
Wave 3: 3 o'clock
Wave 4: this is the opposite of wave 2, so go to 12 o'clock first, then move down to 6 o'clock to finish them off.

Happy hunting.
