Stage 1

Stage 1 Mini-boss: Alien Tank:
	Grab the laser and stand to the far right corner. Turn back and             
shoot. Way to easy for a mini-boss.

Stage 1 Boss: Alien Tortoise
	See that little red/purple heart on the bottom? That's where it 
is       vulnerable. Beware of stray bullets and the things it can 
shoot       out from it's mouth and back. Careful of it's flame breath 

Stage 2

Stage 2 Boss: Alien Spider

      I thought spiders had 8 legs! This one has six... Oh well 
anyways,             shoot the "legs" and the laser tail gun and 
finally the red spot.       When it starts to try to crush you, move 
away in any direction and       blast everywhere.

Stage 3

Stage 3 Mini-boss: Spike (Form 1)

	Grab the hangers and let loose a barrage of bullets while staying       
away for it's tail.

Stage 3 Mini-boss: Spike (Form 2)

	Shoot the missiles; avoid the legs. Simple as that.

Stage 3 Mini-boss: Spike (Form 3)

	Man, this dude never quits! Now it's spikes are located next to       
it's vulnerable spot. It'll try to ram the wall from wher you       
where hanging. This guys is pretty tough even in easy mode.

Stage 3: Mini-boss: Troop Dropper

	Aim for the red spot. That's all I have to say.

Stage 3 Mini-boss: Alien Cyborgs

	It'll be easier to hang left on the ceiling and blast away. The       
gold one can jump quite high to catch you off guard so be careful.

Stage 3 Boss:

	Aaarrrggghhh! A huge robot skeleton! Aim for the head while       
avoiding it's fire breath, eye lasers, and a few occasional bombs       
it may drop out.

Stage 4

Stage 4 Mini-boss: Road Tank

	Jump up and keep shooting. Need I say anymore?

Stage 4 Mini-boss: Airship

	There is no way to kill this boss. Avoid it's fire. Shoot the 
grey       dude while dodging or shooting the red ones.

Stage 4 Mini-boss: Junk Core

	Avoid the missiles and jump and fire away. Pretty easy.

Stage 4 Mini-boss: Alien Samarai
	It's best to stay in one spot and jump if he's firing anything or             
trying to slash at you.

Stage 4 Boss: Airship

	Woohoo! Ride the missiles! Man, is this dude hard! Take out the       
side barriers and finally the core.

Stage 5

Stage 5 Boss: The Mind

	A laser will make quick work of this boss. Watch out for 
      and other stuff. Aim of the eye.

Stage 6

Stage 6 Mini-boss: Alien Larvae

	The spread cannon can also make this guy a goner. Shoot when the       
mouth is opened.

Stage 6 Mini-boss: The Heart

	Shoot the pods on the top and bottom and the rest is simple. 

Stage 6 Mini-boss: Alien Frog

	Get on the face and shoot as much as you can. If you get in it's                         
face and shoot it, it'll be finished quickly. 

Stage 6 Mini-boss: Alien Dragon

	He'll start teleporting like crazy once you've shot him enough                   
times. Blast away.

Stage 6 Boss: Overlord

	...goodness...oh my...wow...it's like...geez...what the...

NOTE: If you've played on the HARD mode select, then you'll find a nice 
surprise waiting for you at the end.
