Just like to add that each of the levels where you build a new ship (Levels 4, 8, and 12), you get an extra life.

You also get an extra life when your score hits 20,000 and 50,000. My score never got higher than 65,000 so I don't know if you get lives beyond that.

Also, once you get to level 9, the game "loops," in the sense that level 9 is just level 1 again, just with a different ship.

The levels (and enemies) themselves are straightforward enough:

Level 1/9: Blobs. These things fly in somewhat straight line patterns, but do tend to float towards the ground. Easy to avoid.

Level 2/10: Fuzzy Bastards. These guys bounce around, but the patterns they bounce in are easy to get around.

Level 3/11: Balls of Death. These are like the Fuzzy guys, but their pattern is fairly erratic at times. Be careful, as they can turn around or go up/down at any moment.

Level 4/12: Homers. These things, which look like missiles, appear on the left side of the screen and float up and down for a few seconds, until charging straight ahead, following your pattern. Easy enough to avoid or shoot down.

Level 5/13: UFO's. These seem to be the most infamous enemies in the game, and they have a nasty tendancy to follow you around. Even worse, they constantly spawn ON YOU. Keep moving, but don't worry so much about shooting them... it's tough, but you can manuever yourself around them. If you're going to lose lives in this game, it'll be on this level(s).

Level 6/14: Plus signs of death. KILLER EQUATIONS! Nah, these are like the enemies in level 2/10, in the sense that their pattern is super easy to read, and they don't move that fast.

Level 7/15: Arrows of DOOM. These guys are pretty much the same enemies you ran into on levels 1 and 9, but they don't decend at all. They move in a constant 360 degree angle, left or right. Easy as hell.

Level 8/16: Bouncers. I HATE these guys. If you played Refuelled, these are the equilivent of those guys. They have a similar pattern to the UFO's, in that they'll hover below you and chase you around, but they're easier to avoid, in my opinion.

Once you beat level 16, the game loops back to level 1 and BOOM! Achievement Unlocked.
