Power Ups

There are several different power-ups that you can get to increase your chances of survival.


Tubes appear sometimes after you kill certain enemies. They are quite beneficial.

Description

Energy

Gives you three extra energy. These keep you alive, so get as many as possible. You cannot go above your max energy.

Speed

Increases how quickly you can maneuver. Be careful however, if you get too many it becomes difficult to control.


Weapons

Weapons are obtained from a metal eater. When used, they become part of your gun until you die.

(L)aser

The laser is your default weapon which you cannot lose. It fires a small bolt of light to damage enemies. Picking your laser when you already have a weapon selected will make you lose the weapon.

(M)egasmasher

The megasmasher is my favorite weapon. It has the power to shoot right through enemies.

(F)lash Buster

The flash buster fires in three directions in front of you, but with a short range. If you have the flash buster equipped, and pick up another flash buster you'll get a mega buster!

(B)arrier Shield

The barrier shield is the ideal defense against bosses. It protects against 32 shots before it disentegrates. Remember that you can still take damage from your back side, and colliding with enemies will still kill you.


Shells

Shells can be used as many times as you want, but each time you use them they cost four energy points. I personally rarely use these. Although they seem good in theory, the cost of four energy makes them too expensive to use. You can't use a shell if you have 4 or less energy.

Megamissile

The megamissile does four points of damage upon impact. However, it's so slow that it's difficult to hit your target and by the time it gets there you could have already fired four regular shots.

Flash Bomb

The flash bomb does a single point of damage to all enemies on the screen. It's good for clearing out a crowded section.

Crush Ball

The crush ball will spin around you for six seconds doing a point of damage to everything in its path.


Power Capsules

Every time you defeat a boss they will drop their power capsule. When you pick it up, you'll gain eight more maximum energy points.

Power Capsule

Power Capsule

This is probably the most important power-up you can get. The eight bonus max energy will be very helpful against the other bosses. You can have a max of 99.
