Items appear when the player destroys white circular objects called POW Armor, and collecting the items that appear causes the ship to become more powerful. The bluish-white POW Armors leave behind laser crystals, and the reddish-white ones leave behind various one of the three other types of power-up items. The POW Armors only appear in set locations on each level.

Laser crystals

Collecting one crystal equips one Force armor onto the ship, and the Force becomes more powerful with new special weaponry after the second crystal is collected, and even stronger with a third crystal. Only one type of crystal can be equipped at a time. Red crystals equip spiraling beams in the forward direction that penetrate through groups of enemies. Yellow crystals equip anti-ground unit beams that spread along the floor and ceiling areas. Blue crystals equip reflecting beams that are fired in 3 directions and reflect off of terrain. Green crystals equip the new Search Laser beam, which fire two beams which bend at angles up to 45° to follow moving enemies. However, the beam has low power and is slow to reload. Gray crystals equip the Shotgun Laser, which fires a circular capsule in the forward direction which explodes in multiple directions after traveling a certain distance. Though the weapon causes high amounts of damage, its range is limited in comparison to other weapons.


The missile item is indicated with a large “M.” Homing missiles are fired two at a time in the forward direction, and will change course to pursue enemies. The newly-added anti-ground missile (Scatter Bomb missile) is fired downwards, and explodes upon contact with the ground. Only one type of missile can be equipped at one time.


These indestructible helper-ships are equipped on the top or bottom of the player’s ship, and attack by firing the basic level laser beam. Up to two bits can be equipped at one time.


This item is indicated with a large “S,” and increase the ship’s speed up to 4 times when collected.

The game consists of six levels. Though an ending screen is displayed after the player finishes all of the levels once through, the game’s true ending is only displayed after the player completes the levels a second time through under increased difficulty. The game starts off in a ruined Bydo base, and continues through a giant cave where waterfalls can prevent the ship from progressing. The player battles several huge battleships in the third level, and the terrain constantly shifts around during the fourth and fifth levels. The final level takes place on the Bydo home planet, where the alien organisms are cloned and mass-produced.
