When the player defeats the guardian and gains entrance to the palace, the game switches to a side-scrolling perspective, in which the player moves towards their goal on foot (by walking, crouching, and climbing ladders, as well jumping) until reaching the boss at the end, in which the player character will begin to fly with their wings again.
In addition to the regular levels there are two optional levels that are accessible from the vertical-scrolling segment: a trap level in which the player is forced to escape from if they’re sucked by the giant mechanical face on each area; and a hidden bonus level where the player can obtain various treasure chests to increase their score.
The player can improve their gun by destroying certain enemies or weapon capsules and picking up the “P” item stored inside.
The player can power-up their character up to five levels; the first power-up will increase the player’s speed; the second will change their gun to a twin shooter, as well as further increase their speed; the third power-up allows for continuous ground attacks; the fourth power-up improves the player’s gun so that it shoots in three directions; and the fifth and final power-up will upgrade weapon to the “Psycho Flame” gun, which can destroy most enemies with a single shot.
When the player is shot by an enemy, they will lose a life and revert to their initial power level
