                                                  |_|_|_|_|_|_|B|
    
    ----------Energy Chip:
    Requirements to get: H (Hawk) Armor
    
    How to get: When you get to the Robot Platform, choose the H (Hawk) Armor, then continue your
                path, you should see a ledge, do a dash jump from the ledge and press+hold the B 
                button to use the jetpack and you should reach a small room with the Chip Capsule.
    
    Effects: This Chip will allow you to recover energy lost (You CAN fill up tanks with this)
             when standing still, good, but takes some time, my advice is to use it on a sub-boss
             room already cleared or between the 2 doors before the Boss, stand still and watch TV
             for some minutes then come back...
    
    ----------N (Chimera) Armor
    Requirements to get: T. Fang (Tunnel Rhino)
    
    How to get: When you reach an open area with some hangars, use T. Fang above all structures on 
                the crates until one opens your way below, drop down then use T. Fang on the right
                wall to find a hole going down, go down and you should see a Robot being held by
                something similar to what held you on the Intro Stage, destroy and you'll get the
                N (Chimera) Armor.
    
    Info: You MUST get this in order to activate the Robot Platform, you can get any other Robot 
          first, but in order to ride them, you must get this one. This robot is almost identical to
          the one in Megaman X. 
    
    ----------Heart
    Requirements to get: Air Dash Upgrade
    
    How to get: When you get to the door of the Boss, just after you beat the Doppler's Aircraft,
                use an Air Dash to reach the wall, then wall kick up and the heart will be there.
    
    ----------Boss. Blast Hornet
    Weakness: G. Well
    
    Gives: Parasitic Bomb - P.Bomb
    
    Attacks: 1.-Keep swinging from one way to another, not really an attack but it might touch you.
             2.-Launches at you with it's Sting ready.
             3.-Throws 5 little Bees, if one touches you it will stick to you, so watch out!
    
    Tactics: If you use G. Well, Blast Hornet will "freeze" and you'll take out 4 energy points, 
             if you don't have it just charge your X-Buster and try to evade it.

                wall to find a hole going down, go down and you should see a Robot being held by
                something similar to what held you on the Intro Stage, destroy and you'll get the
                N (Chimera) Armor.

             or left or dash it will do a frog-jump, it jumps higher in water, if you dash or move
             under water and pres+hold dash it will "activate it's motor" to keep a little more time
