Harder Game
from Nemesis940@AOL.COM
For a greater challenge, beat the game then immediately start over. You'll start from the beginning with whatever lives you had left and changes to the game have been made (e.g. more enemies, they shoot at you more, enemies placed differently.) You can repeat this process as many times you want until you die or quit.

Steal Lives
If you're playing a two-player game and you die, hit A and B simultaneously to steal one of player two's lives.
