A quick tip; probably obvious, but - it took me a while until I realized: you only get points for collecting stars!


EDIT: Whoops! That's wrong; sorry.


Here's what I've figured out so far:

Running into green pillars makes items pop out: the little rocket gives you the ability to shoot, the little potion lets you get hit without dying, and the mushroom kills (?) you.


You get points for shooting enemies and collecting stars; the stars don't show up until 1-2. Grab the little white balloon to go to a bonus round.

What an interesting game. I have never played it before. An obvious Space Harrier clone but with enough unique elements to make it different. I discovered, quite by accident, that you're supposed to run into those solid columns to get the goodies inside, besides the deadly mushroom. How anti-Mario. :D (Guess I should have read the above post which explained all of that.)

This game makes me want to get the 3-D glasses now.
