Rescuing level 2 hostages

The last eight hostages on level two are in the submarine. Bomb the periscope as it appears from the water. This will cause the entire submarine to emerge. The hostages will appear on the bridge. Land next to them to start the rescue.

Stop tank from firing

Move up and down after landing to collect the hostages to prevent the tank from firing.

Eject hostages

When the helicopter is shot, press both buttons and move the Directional Pad up and down. This will enable the hostages to eject out of the helicopter.

Secret characters

On rounds 1 and 4, shoot 10 Space Mines and Superman will appear. This will enable the hostages to run faster.

On rounds 2 and 5, shoot the Radio Towers on the boats and Jaws will come out of the water.

On round 4, for every 16 hostages you rescue, with none being killed, E.T. will appear.

Fireball protection

On rounds 3 and 6, enter the caves backwards and the fireballs can't kill you.

Save all hostages

When you lose a life, repeatedly press both buttons quickly to collect all the hostages.
