* Secret Characters : In title screen after inserted a credit, hold BOMB button then press START Button. You can select 'Slave' or 'Fairy' in character selection screen.

* Special Mode : In test mode, turn 'Special Mode' item ON. You can select Normal or Special game mode before character selection screen.

* Hidden Miclus / Fairy locations : Scattered throughout the game are hidden 'Miclus' icons, which will dispense many medals when shot. In order to make a Miclus appear, hover over the following spots with minimal movement until the Miclus crawls out from under that spot, where it can then be shot.

Also, there are hidden Fairy objects, which will appear after certain conditions are met. Grab them for points, but beware as they can be killed if shot.

Miclus locations are as follows :

Level 5 : There are a total of 3 Micluses in this level. There are 3 large, circular cannon-turrets throughout the level. Hover over each turret.

Level 15 : Hover over the small, circular bush, which is about the size of your plane. It's on the left side of the screen after crossing the watery area.

Fairy locations are as follows :

Level 5 : Near the end of the level, there is a large, silver, metal object in the middle of the screen running vertically along the railroad tracks. The top of the object is a suspended metal bar that runs from left to right. Hover above the left side of the bar, then fly back and forth in a straight line from one end of the bar to the other. It should blow up, revealing many Fairies.

Level 15 : From the beginning of the level, get a 'Quick Shot!' bonus on every medium-sized plane that you see by destroying them before they have a chance to fire. A Fairy will appear.

Level 15 : Before the boss appears, do not shoot any small tanks. Two small tanks will drive into the boss's path, where they will be run over to reveal two Fairies.

* Get over 30,000,000 points before the level 40 mission to reach the real last stages of the game.
