* Tap once: '''Piercing Cannon''', a short-range laser that inflicts massive damage.
* Tap repeatedly: '''Normal Shot''', your typical shmup shots. This is the only weapon affected by your CharacterLevel.
* Hold down: '''Mosquito''', a barrier that [[ReturnToShooter absorbs bullets and shoots them back]], similar to ''Giga Wing''[='=]s Reflect Barrier. Unlike the Reflect Barrier, however, you can aim your absorbed shots before releasing them. Enemies hit with reflected shots turn into experience cubes.
* Hold down until the "GHB" meter empties: '''Gravity Hole Bomb''', a powerful SmartBomb that heavily damages enemies. However, activating the GHB will cancel any reflected bullets you have.

* GiantSpaceFleaFromNowhere: The Final Boss, [[FanNickname The Sorceress]].
** Lampshaded in the epilogue where no one really knows why it was there or why it caused the rebellion on the first place. Although there were a few possibilities, the case was reported cold indefinitely.

Added DiffLines:

* ChargedAttack: The Piercing Cannon, which is fired by waiting until the orb in front of your ship fully grows to tap the fire button.


Added DiffLines:

* {{Minimalism}}: The control scheme employs this. Rather than having a separate button for each of the four weapons, you only have one button that fires different weapons based on how you press it.
