TIPS AND TRICKS

• Challenge star : Successfully complete a stage without losing any lives.

• Bonus Time : Build your weapon to maximum level, then select the same color again. Kill your enemies while in bonus time to increase the score multiplier up to x16.

• Extra Bonus score: Near the end of stage, always are a TOUCH ME helicopter to rescue the civilians you pick un in the stage (not in stage 3 and 6). Instead of droping them there, avoid that helicopter and carry them to the end of the stage and beat the boss, obviously without dying. For every rescued civilian, you will get a 1x multiplier, so you can multiply the bonus by 5 if rescue all the civilians.
