Rio de Janeiro:

Bad weather greets you in the Rio de Janeiro World and renders your homing missiles unavailable. Fire your shots according to the rhythm to create successively more powerful attacks. Hold the stylus over your ship and shake the stylus to create a Bullet Repeller, or just defeat the enemies in successive chains. Using the larger shots created by good timing is the most effective way to defeat enemies and progress through all of the world's levels. Destroying the enemies in chains will immediately refill your Bullet Repeller charge. World Upgrade: Bullet Repeller: Scribbling rapidly over your ship with the stylus is the easiest way to create the repeller if enemies aren’t available to chain shoot. The Bullet Repeller is especially useful in the Rio de Janeiro World, since some enemies will fire homing-type missiles at you.

  • Create your own fireworks display using the stylus
  • 10 different worlds each with unique art, sound, and design
  • Every world contains a different set of rules including new abilities previously unavailable
