//// Special Hint Section for Raiden:

y Resist the urge to hide in the corner of the screen, it rarely
works. Stay in the middle, so you have room to manuever.
y The laser is best on levels: 1, 5, 8.
y Use the scatter shot on : 2, 6, 7.
y Eh, just blast 'em: 3, 4

y Good combos are Laser/Homing and Scatter/Straight-fire. The missiles
make up for some of the disadvantages of the main weapon.

y If possible, move a baddie off the screen, shots won't come from
off-screen enemies. This works for well for certain Boss monsters too,
but it doesn't matter because the Boss monster will self-destruct if
you just survive long enough.

y Destroy the big green, wide winged craft BEFORE they reach the
bottom of the screen, if you don't, they come back from behind.

y Bombs can be used as shields, hide in the middle of the explosion
and fire out.

y As you get better, try to save bombs, bombs combined with medals
will give you the best bonus awards at the end of each level. More
points means those precious extra lives.

y When fighting the boss on level 6, meteors can come from BEHIND!
Make sure you are well away from the bottom of the screen.

y Don't drop bombs on the very last boss until all of his pieces are

y Bosses can be conquered by dismantling them. Such as the level 8
boss, shoot the armor before the main body. The wings on level 5, the
side towers on level 4, and the engines and cannons on level 3.

Good luck!
