Tips and tricks

Maintenance Code

  • 9-2-2-2-0 Maintenance Mode.
  • 9-2-2-1-0 All Data Erased.
  • 1-2-3-4-5 Reset Scores.

Technical Bonus

Each stage 2nd boss has a weak point which is called 'the core' that is exposed for some few seconds. To get the 'Technical Bonus' when the core is revealed you must use the dragon shoot against it killing the boss in one hit. Try not to damage the 2nd boss for too much though, if it gets too damaged it won't reveal the core.
