While it’s tempting (and sometimes prudent) to upgrade your starting laser
weapon, a single point in the higher-level weapons is infinitely more
powerful (and cooler!) than the lower-level ones.
Tips and Tricks:
Your main concern in the first two episodes will be the Energy problem: If
you buy the third weapon too early(like me), you will have Energy shortage
with your first and second ships.
A trick that helps to conserve energy: There is usually a Immortality bonus
in a level, when you are in Immortal mode, crash into your enemies, crashing
is by far the most powerful attack you can ever perform, and it is both
Energy Efficient and Cash Efficient since it cost nothing.
Anti-Laser driod should be your first priority, since there are little
missile users in the 1st and 2nd episodes. But as you advanced to the 3rd
or 4th episodes, there will be more and more missile users, so you will
want to have AT LEAST two Air-raid driods.
Bear in mind that Air-raid driods will be destroyed easily if you don’t
have Anti-Laser driods to defend them.
Another spoiler about the secret weapon in case you can’t get it firing
The secret weapon consumes 500 plasma(cash) each shot normally, and 100
plasma each shot when you get Super Laser bonus.
*Your first droid should be the Antilaser droid. Although it’s tempting –
don’t buy the repair droid as the first droid – it requires the ship to
stand still to repair it. But: without defense droids you will have to
move the ship around a lot, leaving no time for the repair droid to do
*Sell the missiles early in the game to get some extra cash. Especially
the regular missiles are pretty useless.
*If those green swarm-pods annoy you: trigger them while they are still
far away, then retreat the ship to the bottom of the screen. This makes
it a lot easier to shoot the swarm ships, since they cannot surround you
*Turrets, while on the ground, cannot be hit by most weapons. They will
eventually raise, but you can also trigger them earlier by just moving
the ship close to them.
*Skip the second weapon and save the money for the third one. Probably it’s
one of the best in the game (especially, since it can attack turrets on
the ground). Unfortunately it has a high energy consumption, so you will
need to upgrade the ship, too.
Instead of upgrading your starting laser weapon, putting a single point in the
higher-level weapons will make them more powerful than the lower level ones.
How to defeat all alien ships on screen:

First this cheat will only work only if you have the latest dystroyer ship
(the dystroyer v.5) or dystroyer v.4.If you have enough plasma (cash) you can
buy a powerful missile called nk 3000 or was it nk 4000?Anyways buy about ten
of those nk (nuclear explosion missiles that dont damage your ship and your
droids) and if your ship is very damaged use 1nk missle it will dystroy all
alien ships on the screen including turrets on the ground and in air.
