Suggested combinations[edit]

  • Exit part

This item is absolutely necessary to save lots of time when re-visiting previously cleared stages looking for missing bolts.

  • Auto Shoot + Boost Part + Shooting Part + High Speed Charge (23 bolts)

These four items combined allow a continuous shower of bullets. Just hold the fire button down, and navigate any stage.

  • Super Recover + Energy Balancer + Energy Saver + Exchanger (20 bolts)

With these four items equipped the player will be able to play the game using almost exclusively the special weapons.

  • Spare Extra + Spare Charger

These two items have some use only if equipped at the same time.

Parts strategy[edit]

There are only 40 bolts in the game, but three save states. In order to enjoy all the parts, you can play through the game following three different strategies. The following is just a suggestion:

  1. Exit part and all Mega Buster parts, except Laser or Arrow shots (38 bolts): play using mostly the Mega Buster.
  2. Exit part and all Energy & Dexterity parts (40 bolts): play using mostly the Special Weapons.
  3. Exit part, both Extra-Life parts and either Laser or Arrow shot (19 bolts): play using less parts, but you have many more extra lives.
