Tips

 

Some of the same tips from last week (Contra) may well still apply.

 

bust3dstr8:

I like to get fire for first 3 levels, then spread for rest of game.

 

On the overhead level 2 fire has extra range compared to other weapons.

 

Hold down the shoot button for a bigger shot with fire and use the splash to kill things easy.

 

On level 2 boss goto the right then give it 3 charged fire shots to driver for easy kill.

 

You can stand on top the crab mech in level 3 and shoot down through the armor with fire.

The one thing I've learned is that it's better to be patient and think before you advance, rather than just run-n-gun. Helped me get a better score this week. :D
