Bonus stages

There are bonus stages in levels 2, 3, 4, 5, and 7. Most bonus stages require that you meet some condition and then fly into a seemingly solid area to enter the bonus area. The conditions and areas are described below. Level 2 - (condition: none) fly into the first ship opening along the bottom of the screen in the last section of the stag before meeting the boss (area after the giant carbonated bubbles) Level 3 - (condition: must have destroyed all of the guns on the ground), fly up close to the low rock ceiling toward the end of the level right before the last "mountain". Level 4 - (condition: must have no power-up boxes lit at bottom of screen), fly into the back of the Moai head located in the middle of 3 heads toward the end of the level. This particular head will be facing away from you and all 3 heads are upright, difficult to explain location w/o picture). Level 5 - (condition: unknown), fly through the fire at the corner of the inverted volcano just before the small passage which leads to the 2-headed fire dragon. Level 7 - (condition: unknown), fly through low corner just after the 4 turrets where your ship would normally have to cut diagonally upward.
Sent in by Joel Welsh In the second level before you reach the leader, there are two holes, one up and one down. A slightly different color enemy should come out of the bottom. Shoot him then go in the hole as fast as you can, if you do it right, you will be in a bonus level.

Increase the radius of your R Options

Select R Option (rotating options) from weapons panel. Once you have acquired all 4 Options, collect enough power-ups to again highlight the "Option" option at the bottom of the screen. Press and hold the A button to increase the radius of your R Options. This will make the R Option as effective (probably more so) as any of the other Option types by covering a large portion of the screen.

Arcade

On the Option Mode Screen, select Game Level and press the A button as fast as you can until the level reads "ARCADE".
