I did an earlier guide on the Japanese version of the game:

This time I managed to pull this off with the Type-1 ship in Origin (arcade) Novice mode, but I'd say it's a little harder here. I entered the stage 5 boss fight with 4 lives and 2 bombs, and had to use every single bomb to finish the final boss on my last life, with laser damage too.

Whichever mode you choose, you will need all the bombs you can get during your way. Dying with two or more bombs in stock is a grave mistake, and will probably prevent you from clearing.

If you can get the second extend, Origin Novice is the way to go, as those extra bombs would make it much easier. My score was about 40 million on entering the final boss, and with the extend limit at 50, getting it seems possible, if you also concentrate on scoring gold from enemy lasers.


Thanks to Raezie for a video capture of a successful run!
