     WALKTHROUGH
o---------------------o


                        O =-=-=-=-= O
                        |  Level 1  |
                        O =-=-=-=-= O

Run right and kill the enemies and as you run, hold down/right to shoot the
crystal and get a laser gun. A pod with a spread gun flies by. You can get it
if you want. Hop across the bridge and kill the soldier and aim at the guns
embedded in the cliffs and avoid the fire. Take the high road and you can get
the Fire Spiral if you want or keep going and shoot the soldiers and watch
for cannons below coming out of the ground. A machine gun appears. Use it or
the other weapon to attack the soldier above the tower then shoot the two bomb
lobbers from a distance and then get down and destroy the core.

                        O =-=-=-=-= O
                        |  Level 2  |
                        O =-=-=-=-= O

You have 1 minute and 10 seconds to get to the boss. Go forward then go right
at the dead end. Stay low and kill the enemies and shoot the core when it is
exposed and move to the dead end and go right. The core will be on the right
side. Avoid the bullets and shoot it before the floor rollers get you then run
to the dead end and go left. In this screen, duck down and start shooting away.
Bet ya glad, you got the machine gun in the first level assuming you did. Go to
the end and go left. Now shoot the big core in the middle and avoid the bullets
coming from the side guns and the enemies running around and off to face the
boss.

Stand slightly to the left of the left turret or to the right of the right
turret to avoid having to dodge two sets of cannons and shoot the first core
and then destroy the turret, move to the other side and do the same for the
other core and turret then destroy the two cores in the middle and the main
boss appears. Stay in the middle and keep shooting up. Only move if you miss
the fire ring it shot at you since they can be destroyed too. The boss's
core will flash if you are hitting indicating you are scoring hits.

                        O =-=-=-=-= O
                        |  Level 3  |
                        O =-=-=-=-= O

This is a climb up a mountain. In a two player game, its easy to leave the
other player behind for death. Shoot enemies, cannons, and turrets till you
reach the top and that's all we have to say here. Only stuff you need to know
is jump on the moving platforms to get across some areas and the fire can only
hurt you if the fire hump touches you.

At the top shoot the side cannons first and stand directly beneath the second 
or fourth bar of the turrets and you can dodge the cannons easier. Once the
turret is destroyed. Shoot any enemies coming from the side and destroy the
diamond above to complete the level.

                        O =-=-=-=-= O
                        |  Level 4  |
                        O =-=-=-=-= O

You have 1 minute and 50 seconds to get to the boss. Run to the dead end and
go left. You have to jump and shoot the core here. The enemy is in full force.
Run to the dead end and go right. Stay still and keep shooting to destroy the
core then go left at the dead end. Duck down and destroy the core and move
right at the dead end. Jump up and destroy the core and go right at the dead
end. Shoot the box out of the way and avoid the bombs the enemy lobs as you
duck and destroy the main core.

Get in the middle and destroy two cores then stand slightly left or right of
the turret and destroy it. The enemies will try to interfere this time. Once
the turret and four cores are gone. The main boss appears. When the four
brains join together and become two. Shoot at them to damage them. Once one is
gone concentrate on the other and avoid the bubbles they fire. You can shoot
the bubbles too.

                        O =-=-=-=-= O
                        |  Level 5  |
                        O =-=-=-=-= O

You are now in the snow field. Shoot the soldiers and avoid the bombs being
lobbed from the background. Destroy the spaceship quickly and the soldiers
it dispatches and get past two post guards and when you get to a spiked vehicle
then you have your work cut out for you and you got another one to destroy.
you'll sacrifice 2 lives maybe. At the big guy with frisbees. Blast him and hop
over his spiked frisbees till he dies. Keep moving and avoid the blowtorches
and get the laser gun. It will come in handy on the next Frisbee guy as he goes
down in 4 shots. Keep going and avoid the falling spike balls as they rise and
fall. A barrier will protect you till you reach the larvae with you run against
the barricade and shoot up at it and shoot any hatchlings that emerge till it
is destroyed. Keep moving ahead and destroy the pods to eliminate hassle and
at the end, walking hands appear. This means that the last boss is nearby. When
you reach the heart, shoot the pods the hands emerge from then run up against
where the pod used to be and shoot at the heart until it dies. You win!
