the high speed stage is now back to 2D instead of 3D. now the player must navigate through a maze at extreme speed dodging enemies, walls and bullets. however since the level is played in such a extreme speed it makes it incredibly hard.
Use the first few enemys that drop Power-ups to gain Speed bonuses to help survive this level. When a opening/closing walls need very accurate timing to get past, take the risk and dont wait for them. Firepower isnt much of an issue here however an Option or two and Missiles can help alot.
The boss is Beacon.
