- TIPS AND TRICKS -


* 10,000 Points Bonus : At the start of the game, count your shots until arriving at the first railroad. If you've counted 40 shots, a little car should enter the screen on the right side. Destroy it with the 41th shot to get a 10,000 points bonus. There are similar cars throughout the game, but making them appear is a mystery.


* A Second 10,000 Points Bonus : Near the beginning there is a 'school house' with a red drum on the top. If you hit the red drum enough times, you'll get a 10,000 points bonus.


* Second Chance : If you get shot soon after starting a new game, the game will often let you off and just fire a super bomb instead.


* Warp : Lose your first player without scoring any points (make sure the second chance super bomb doesn't hit anything). The game puts you forward to a railway where a car will appear that can be shot for 10,000 points.


* Hint : Blast everything. Civilian cars and houses, etc, all give 50 points each.
