    TRIVIA

    TIPS AND TRICKS
    • Formations:
    1) Line: safety mode. This mode allows both aerial and ground attacks, but you only get a narrow shot area. The multiple biplanes are susceptible to getting hit too, so watch your flying.
    2) Delta: aerial attack mode. The firepower can only hit flying planes, no ground shoots.
    3) Crux: ground attack mode. Only ground objects can be hit. This is also the only mode that can destroy the boss ship.

    • If you press A+B the multiple biplanes will be released. This can be used as a sort of shield.
