There are green pick-ups placed at various intervals. If you run into them they will act as a smart-bomb and destroy everything on the screen. If you shoot them four times they change into weapons which can be collected. These weapons increase your fire power.
If you have collected two weapons, the pick-up will become an orb instead of a weapon. As well as increasing your fire-power, these orbs are protective. You may carry up to two orbs at a time, and any further orbs that you collect will be worth bonus points. Each time you are hit you will lose an orb. If you are hit when you are not carrying any orbs, you will lose a life. Extra lives will be given when you reach 20,000 points and then every 50,000 after that.
