At regular intervals, a red ship will appear which will release a power-up capsule; the three power-ups available are as follows:
    • A-Pulsator:
    Fire: Thunder + Homing
    Bomb: S-Bomb
    • B-Pulsator:
    Fire: Wide Shot + Missile
    Bomb: M-Bomb
    • C-Pulsator:
    Fire: Spraygun + Synch-Fire
    Bomb: T-Bomb

    UPDATES
    The US versions have the 'Winners Don't Use Drugs' and the 'Recycle It, Don't Trash It!' screens.

    TIPS AND TRICKS
    Pulsator capsules and fire power will automatically be increased after a period of time, So do not hesitate use the smart bomb if you are in a dangerous situation. Always choose the Thunder Cannon as this is the most powerful of the three primary weapons available. Try to position your ship to the right of the screen as enemy craft tend to appear on this side.
