HIDDEN ELEMENTS

Hidden Homing Gun Powerups: Approximately 2/3 of the way into the fourth stage, there is a dormant egg on the left side. It contains a Homing Gun powerup. Atop the first climb on the fifth stage, there is a facehugger that does not break out of the display tube. This tube contains another Homing Gun Powerup.

Easily Cross the Bridge: Just before the stage 3 boss, there is a gap that is very difficult to cross. Wait 20 seconds and a bridge will form over the gap, eliminating the risk of getting killed.
