Stage's Comments

Stage 1

I've started killing some enemies to obtain points and I kill myself twice in the "machine guns." Until the moment I active the Bomb, I have 7215 points and I kill myself once again when the Red Soldier falls on top of the char. While the bomb destroys everything at the screen, I still continue winning points. Before Game Over screen to appear, the Bomb does the Dog on the left side of the screen comes out and like this, killing him, giving me 9980 points. Added to the that already had before, I gives 28075 points. To win an Extra Life, I would only need 20k initial points, therefore, with that pontuation, I earn an Extra Life and before Game Over screen to appear, the glitch is actived.

Stage 2

In each Mines that I step, earnings automatically 500 points, each Power-Holder that I destroy, earnings 2k points, Boss will give me 10k points when killed with the Laser and at the Stage's end, earnings more 10k bonus points. The next Extra Life comes with 80k points, but in this Stage, the glitch won't work, then, it just remains to add me points. I cannot add more than 79999 points here, however, I know that I'll have 30k points at the Stage's end (Power-Holder x5 + Boss + Bonus). I've started this Stage with 38075 points, added to the 30k will give 68075 points, then I will have to do a max pontuation 11924 points in elapsing of the Stage.
I used them Mine and I killed some enemies to do the necessary pontuation, besides using the weapon Crash-Bomber with the Laser, increasing my pontuation during the Stage. To the end, I have 79354 points.
  • The weapon Crash-Bomber is me necessary for to 4th Stage;
  • In the last Power-Holder, I manipulate a bomb as a item;

Stage 3

Already being with a Bomb, the weapon Crash-Bomber and a good pontuation, I just go ahead until I can to activate Bomb and to be killed by Red Soldier, doing with that Bomb destroys him, giving me 790 points and an Extra Life, activating the glitch.
  • Before the Stage Clear screen to appear, I catch one more Bomb that will be used in the following Stage.

Stage 4

At the beginning of this phase, I manipulate one more weapon Crash-Bomber, what facilitates when I destroy some Scooter-Robots. I begin the phase with 90859 points, each Scooter-Robots gives me 7035 points, the next Extra Life comes with 140k points, therefore, I need 49141 points.
7 * 7035 = 49245. =O
I destroy 6 initial Scooter-Robots, I let one to pass so that it throws a bomb in me and before the bomb to arrive, I shoot in the diagonal so that 7th Scooter-Robot can be hit and I active the Bomb to create the Glitch.
Note: Scooter-Robots are not defeated only by the power of Bomb in Hard Mode.

Stage 5

I've started this Stage with 150074 points, the next Extra Life will come with 200k points. As in the 2nd Stage, each Power-Holder if destroyed without any enemy leaving from within, gives me 2k points, the Boss when defeated with the Laser gives me 10k points and the Bonus, more 10k points, therefore, more 30k points in this Stage again. But the only weapon that I have are Crash-Bomber, and if used in the Power-Holders in the wrong moment, I win A LOT points. Then, I approach the closest possible of the 1st, 2nd and 4th Power-Holders to destroy them.
The Boss if defeated with Crash-Bomber, will also give me A LOT points, then, to get rid of that, I manipulate a Laser weapon in the last Power-Holder.

Final Stage

I've started the last Stage with 196673 points, however, without Bomb yet. The own Stage gives me soon this Bomb in his beginning, then, I catch her, then, I activate and I'll be died by Alien.

I hope everybody can understand my SUCKS english! lolz
Anyway, enjoy !!!
