A Well Known Cheat/Bug : At a joint between 2 vectors (>90 degrees), position yourself below and shoot straight up. If you can align yourself just right, the shots will travel through the walls at the joint. Without moving from side to side, just thrust up and voila, you are now inside the wall. You can now move around and shoot the gun pods from behind. This is especially useful if you can get under the world!
Hint 1 : Develop skill for controlling the space ship in regular and negative gravity.
Hint 2 : Beam up fuel cells with TRACTOR/SHIELD.
Hint 3 : Attack the red alien planet first for maximum challenge and 20000 bonus points! Completion of this planet immediately places a player in the next solar system where all planets are worth 9000 bonus points.
Hint 4 : Attack more difficult planets early in the game for higher bonus points.
Hint 5 : Many planet terrains have safe areas or 'blind spots' from which the player can safely shoot at bunkers.
