Hidden Fire Power Up
On the 6th level, don't destroy the 2 big laser blasters near the start of the level on the way down. Destroy them (preferrably with Hunter) on the way back up and inbetween them a Fire power up will appear that you can't get if you destroy the lasers on the way down.
Keeping your shield for longer
You only get the shield power up on levels 2, 3 and 4. So if you start on level 3, 4 or 5 then the last one in the sequence will have a shield power up. If you start on level 1 then you will need to do the whole of mission 5 trying to keep your shield intact. It can make all the difference.

All weapons + Pods
Pause the game and press up 10 times, B and then down twice. Then keep pressing B and it will add one weapon per press in order. Similarly if you don't want a weapon you can press C when it comes up in the cycle and it will remove that weapon. Pressing A will give you the side pods.
