Control the Pharoh shot's movementsSent in by Norfleet You can control the Pharoh shot's movements by pressing up or down when it is released. This is helpful when fighting Dr. Wily's final contraption because it has a tendency to appear at the very bottom of the screen where other weapons can't reach it.
PasswordsRed dot on A1, A4, B5, E2, F1, and F3. Dr. Cossask's Castle, with all weapons and items.

Weapons and the bossesSent in by Matt Lazarowitz at The Unofficial World of Nintendo!!! Here are the weapons that work best against each robot Drillman use Dive Missiles Ringman use Pharaoh Shot, it is especially deadly on Ringman when charged up Dustman, use Ring Boomerang Skullman use Dust Crusher Brightman use Rain Flush You only get a 1 to 1 ratio of energy used to damage done. But it does do a fair amount of damage in a shot. Brightman is also the only one who really seems to be effected by this weapon. Pharaoh man use Flash Stopper Again, this is the only boot that this weapon is really effective on, and once more, you will use up all you energy to defeat Pharaoh man. But he's really easy to defeat now. Diveman use Skull Barrier Use a DFA, or death from above tactic. That is the most effective way I have found to tackle Diveman. Toadman use Drill Bombs
Geting energy tanksSent in by Derek Voss After beating Skull Man go back to level and get energy tanks when you get to Flip-Top if he doesn't give you what you want do not accept it, go down the ladder, go back up, don't get off the ladder. Repeat as necessary.
Finding the hidden balloon item and wire weaponSent in by (EniGmA) To find the hidden balloon item, go to Pharoah man's stage. When you begin, cross the quicksand pit, and you should see a BIG hole leading down. Normally, you would jump down to continue, but instead, use Rush coil to leap over it. Walk off the screen, and you'll come to another quick sand pit! Cross it to get the balloon weapon. Also, to get the wire weapon, which is good on Dr. Cossack, Go to Dive Man's stage and look for a very small hole. Jump down it and avoid the spikes lined on the walls. Then you'll get the wire! These are very helpful items!
Hidden energy tankSent in by David Perry at The Unofficial World of Nintendo!!! On the very first Dr. Cossack stage, move all the way to the left edge of the screen from the starting position. You can't see it, but there is an energy tank hidden there in the snow.
Passing the second set of robots before Dr. WilySent in by Ace Stingray a.k.a. Devin Applegate Having trouble getting past the second set of robots before Dr. Wily? At the beginning of the stage get the energy tank in the corner. Die until the continue/password screen. Get the Energy tank, die until continue/password screen. Repeat until you have 9 energy tanks. Now you have a fighting chance against the second set of bosses.
Fighting Drill ManSent in by Ace Stingray a.k.a. Devin Applegate To defeat Drill Man use Dive Missile and charged up Pharaoh Shot. When he drills into the ground jump back and forth.
Fighting Dr. WilySent in by Ace Stingray a.k.a. Devin Applegate at The Unofficial World of Nintendo!!! Having trouble fighting Dr. Wily on the very last level? Charge up Pharaoh's shot but don't fire it! Instead jump around with the charged shot. Eventually your overhead shot should hit Dr. Wily's ship. Repeat the pattern while dodging Dr. Wily's shots. Note: If you have left over energy tanks you may use those during the battle as well.
Boss tipsSent in by Ace Stingray a.k.a. Devin Applegate at The Unofficial World of Nintendo!!! A pattern you should use is Skull Man, Toad Man, Dive Man, Pharaoh Man, Ring Man, Drill Man, Dust Man, Bright Man. Against Dive Man use up all of Skull Barrier then use MBuster. Against Toad Man MBuster is his weakness when he tries to jump on you move out of his way, turn and shoot, repeat until dead. In Dive Man's level there are 2 robot whales, after beating the second whale jump over the spikes and into the hole dodge the spikes and if you make to the bottom you will find Wire. In Pharaoh Man's level go past the quick sand, walk up to the hole, but instead of jumping in use Rush Coil and jump over, you will have to go through more quick sand, after doing that you will find Balloon, after that you will be teleported to the middle of the level.
Ring Boomerang tipThe Ring Boomerang, although not too effective against Skull Man, will penetrate the Skull Barrier.
Geting the Energy Tank at the end of the third Dr. Cassock stageTo get the Energy Tank at the end of the third Dr. Cassock stage, use the Baloon and slide through the tiny opening. Do not grab the can and slide back before standing up, though. You could instantly blow up.
Use the Wire as a weaponBelieve it or not, the Wire can be used as a weapon. When fighting Dr. Willy in his skull contraption, stand directly under him when the armor is blown off. Extend the wire when standing directly under the sensitive point in the vehicle. The Wire uses 2 cells of energy and only inflicts 1 cell of damage.
Pharaoh Shot doesn't use energyTo kill with the Pharaoh Shot without using energy, power up a shot, then hit something while the shot is still building. Press Start then resume play and power up the shot again. Repeat as needed.
