GOAL

Eliminate all the enemy robots on each level within the time limit.

POWERUPS

Sometimes, enemies will drop power-ups when they die. There are three types of powerups: fire (red), lightning (yellow) and metal (gray).

You can walk over the powerup to pick it up, which will change your weapon, or shoot the powerup to blow it up and deal damage in a big area.

Each color of powerup works differently (see the table below):
