Some tips for anybody who wants to get an easy 1CC on this. Use type one for your weapons since almost all the stages feel designed around it. Have two speed upgrades(or more if you're feeling daring), get all four options, and always use double shot. Double shot might not kill bosses as quickly, but it lags the game making it easier to react to bosses that shoot lasers and it also keeps almost every regular enemy in the game from even being able to approach you. Combine that with your missiles always hitting ground enemies you won't have to worry that much other than avoiding bullets and not hitting the environment. The hardest part will be memorizing the last few stages with their "Hah hah, gotcha" sections.

There is an easy way to farm extra ships on stage 5 as well, but this is really one of those games where if you lose all your weapons and it's at a check point in the middle of a stage you might be better off resetting. Good luck. 👍
