Bomb - Wide range fire
Laser - Long range fire.
H. Mis - Homing missiles.

* Super Power-Up : Insert your coin(s) and select one player mode. When you begin the game, do not press the fire button and do not kill anything. Try lasting as long as possible avoiding the enemies' bullets. Your ship will eventually be destroyed and when you resume, you will have all power-ups and weapons. The longer you lasted before being destroyed, the further in the game you'll resume.
