Game Details

Usual assortment of power ups, music is better than average, but game repeats after a few levels, and cycles on ad infinitum. Looks kinda samey very quickly. But altogether a great shoot 'em up.

--- 720 --- (Contributor: unknown) In the ramp section, levels 8, 9, and 10: holding down the kick and jump buttons simultanously on the lip of the ramp will boost your air. This trick only works when you're going the correct speed (usually your third or fourth jump), and only once (as far as I can tell) per ramp session per level. ----------- Afterburner ----------- (Contributor: Anthony D.
