This walkthrough is mostly made from information collected from throughout the internet. If you have any more questions that this FAQ type thing doesn't answer, feel free to contact me (mattmartin13@hotmail.com). --------- 3.BASICS --------- -The controls are as follows: Analog Thumb Pad: Change ship direction Directional Button: Press UP or down to ascend or descend from planets you orbit A Button: Fire Main Weapon B Button: Special Power Pod Attack X Button: Scanner Y Button: Activate Shield Left Trigger: Warp Engine Right Trigger: Thrust Start Button: Pause or Exit from menu -Only the top 4 items in your inventory are equipped. -You are awarded a new ship every fourth level up to level 44. Even after the last bulk upgrade your stats (I wish I could see them) still go up when you gain a level. -The last mission is #31. Even after you beat it though you can still play forever, but their is no ending. -There is no way to contact the Armada, you can only frag them. -The "special" weapons, such as the Phoenix Missile, are fired randomly by your ship. -The large green dots on your radar are a chance to do a escort mission. Use your Scanner to talk to the large ship. By doing this you can earn up to 1000 credits. -Small green dots on your radar are ships that will become your wingman when you scan them. -The red dots are the Armada. The large ones are more harder to kill, but give more experience. White dots are your mission goals. --------- 4.PLANETS AND STARBASES --------- -Allied Starbase: x:-78 y:99 -Terran Starbase: x:-3408 y:2400 -Nomad Starbase: x:2421 y:14343 -Eldred Starbase: x:13652 y:-5886 -Scarab Starbase: x:-128 y:-9822 -Drakken Starbase: x:12421 y:7476 -Vorgan Starbase: x:-12989 y:-5788 -Other Starbase: x:-17650 y:-16500 -Other Starbase: x:12340 y:14280 -Drakken Gas Mine Starbase: x:22460 y:6180 -Secret Base: x:-27250 y:30780 -Desert Planet: x:-22998 y:-5327 -Jungle Planet: x:-9330 y:6260 -Ice Planet: x:-14721 y:-20311 -Dead Planet: x:8710 y:-18060 -Gas Planet: x:27421 y:3284 -Volcanic Planet: x:22421 y:24511 -Infested Planet: x:-31250 y:34280 --------- 5.TIPS --------- -The best places to get money and experience and the differant planets. These ships are harder to kill (because of their higher levels), but the money and experience are worth it. -Hold down the Scanner when leaving a planet. This way you pick up anything you forgot to in the heat of battle. -The Eldred are possibly the best for single player because of their experience boost, critical hit, and their ability to warp without using energy. -The Vorgon are possibly the best for multi-player because their homing shots can steal the most kills and also help pick off the enemies that dodge. --------- 6.SECRETS --------- -Sorry, no cheats. -After level 16 you can buy a "super" Ultratech, called Shiva, at the Allied Starbase for 50,000 credits. This item gives you infinite energy and more shots fired. -After level 32 you can but another "super" Ultratech, called Disrupter, at the Secret Base for 95,000 credits. This item kills Armada ships in one hit (I think). -After level 44 (the last ship upgrade) you get unlimited power pods. --------- 7.ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS --------- Feel free to use this FAQ in any shape or form you please, I am not taking credit for any of the information given in this FAQ (except the ones I specify), I was just the collecter.
