----- Gameplay 1P -----
* Save stations to save your progress

(The Wasteland, The Factory, The Volcano, The Ice Caves and The Forest)
* Seven major bosses and four mini-bosses
* Weapon system with four base colors and four delivery methods, making 16 weapon combinations
* Missiles, shield and ship upgrades

----- Gameplay 2P -----
