Weapon Power-Ups

Scattered throughout each level you will find a host of different weapons - 
some float around, others fly from enemy ships you destroy. To collect a Weapon 
Power-up, simply fly into it. To upgrade the power of each weapon, collect a 
series of only that weapon-type (for example, collecting four lasers in a row 
will give you a more powerful laser). The following is a list of the different
items you can collect.

   Blue		Lasers
   Red		Automatic machine gun
   "B"		Bomb
   "M"		Direct fire missile
   "H"		Homing missile
   Dragon	3,000 points
   Fairy	10,000 points
   "P"		Super Weapon Power-up. Takes you to the 
   		maximum power of the Weapon Power-up
   		you are currently using.
Special Shot:

2-Player Mode	Line up directly behind your teammate and fire into his 
		jetstream. This will give you a powerful dispersal beam.
