TIPS AND TRICKS

• Power-up : after the middle of each stage there´s a helicopter (a plane on 1st stage) that drops a power-up item. So, don´t destroy it till it releases the power-up. Be careful with the helicopter scrap after destroying it, it can kill you.

• 1up player : at the 2nd and 4th stage there is a chance to pick up a 1up item : a group of blocks appears floating on the upper part of the screen, you have to shoot the blue one. You have to hit it with one shot, if you don´t the blue block will turn to red.

• Moai statues : be careful with the Moai Statues at the 6th stage (last stage). Always check if its eyes turn red, if it starts flashing it will shoot.
