- Tap X as fast as possible because your bullets fire faster.
- Pick up as many power ups as you can.
- Avoid the W power up because it skips some of the level so you will lose points.
-During the mid level boss and end level boss you can use a transformation with Y to do more damage.
-After you finish stage one make sure you purchase 1 or 2 extras transformation ships during the intermission section.

The K lets you keep your upgrades after a death"

Hello all,

a few important points on the above guide:

1. There are power ups with names instead of letter. They appear in the same places all the time (or most of the time for sure). SIDE, HOME, FIRE, and the likes. You have to collect 3 of the same in succession to earn the power up, that you can activate later on with Y. In the top middle of the screen under the picture of your ship it shows the progress of the type you collect. Beware, if you have two of the same then you pick up a different one, it will start from scratches. Once you have the 3 of the same, you have bagged the power up and can go for the next. A good strategy to go for SIDE at the beginning, then HOME, later on whatever you get, at least this was my frequency of pop ups.

2. At the beginning, try to flip the first 4-5 blue box powerups to L and M, as they maximize your firepower that helps with the destruction.

3. Ideally, you shouldnt use any of the Y powerups until the first big boss (the crab like thing with 2 arms). Its arms can be shot relatively easily with regular guns, then for the hull a powerup is fine. Sometimes if I managed to get SIDE or HOME, I used one right at the point where there are 2x4 vertical balls on both sides that replenish once you destroy them. Their barrage is lethal.

4. Collect G's if you can. Once finished the first stage, if you have collected 110, buy NUCLEAR. That is your ticket to 200,000, I cant imagine doing it without. It does not consume energy when shooting, only once you get hit. I suck at these games, but managed to get 120,000 extra with that single powerup. Mash X without paying attention, just dodge the bullets. If its quieter, then work on the enemy ship.

5. If you finish stage 1 with a powerup active, you will maintain it and the blue boxes will give you replenishment, very useful can last up to the boss ship.

6. Strategy advice for the 2nd stage. Beginning just collect powerups, avoid the stray bullets. Beware when the insect like ship shows up, has some funny fiery shots. Once they leave the screen upwards, wait until it descends back, then unleash hell on it. Will go down quite fast. Then work on the left wing of the main ship, then do the right one until both falls off. After, just keep shooting the pulsing bulb-like parts to tear it apart. Once 2 orange ships will show up, you are almost there. DONT PANIC! They shoot a lot of bullets but in a very easy to avoid pattern, just stay at the bottom of the screen. If you have NUCLEAR, just dodge the bullets and never let X go. Once you killed one of them, you need only a few points that you can salvage from the blue little platforms.

I hope it helps.
