# Alien Syndrome

### Invincibility

Pick up the ? power-up's when the timer reads the following numbers: 272, 267, 232, 222, 171, 161, 131, 121. This will give you temporary invincibility; be careful because it does not last long.

### Bosses

Squime: His weak spot is at the bottom of the red stripe.

Aargh: Shoot upwards at his mouth. (Be careful of the alien boss helpers.)

Tacapy: Continuously shoot him between his eyes. (Wait until he opens them all the way.) Tacapy has alien boss helpers, but you should be able to destroy him before either he or the helpers get anywhere close to you.

Masher: Move counter-clockwise around the screen and shoot him between his front legs when he stops moving. Note that he shoots three projectiles to the side when you are to the left or right of him. (Be careful of the alien boss helpers.)

Haggah: Move slightly to the left of the slit so he shoots the projectiles out of his ears. Then shoot upwards at him. (Like Tacapy, you should be able to destroy Haggah before he gets close to you.)

Minosaur: Get underneath and shoot diagonally upwards and to the right at his green face (near his neck).

Mr. Mimi: If you defeat Minosaur using fireballs and without dying, you will get unlimited lasers when fighting Mr. Mimi. Likewise, using lasers on Minosaur will provide you with fireballs against Mr. Mimi. Face him and shoot upwards at his mouth. (Although Mr. Mimi does not appear in the instruction book, direct correspondance with Sega revealed that this is the name of the round 7 boss.)
