This is from one of my favourite games, Tyrian 2000. Available on PC. By some weapons are pics of it of how the weapon looks like when at maximum power.

Here are the special hints for Tyrian 2000 (taken from the manual)!

Special Weapon Abilities:
Pulse Cannon & Multi Cannon FrontImage -> Dual Rapid Pulse: Two large blasts forward.

Vulcan Cannon -> Dual Rapid Vulcan: Short Burst of Twin Vulcan shots.

Mega Cannon -> Mega Laser: A Laser Level 3, but blue coloured, stronger and sneers through anything.

Guided Bombs -> Slow Mine Shot: A single MicroBomb, travelling slow.

Missile Launcher -> Missile Pod: A short burst of more missiles.

Protron Front -> Protron Dispersal: A random placement of large Protron Balls.

Can you face the ultimate and most destructive challenge?
Super Tyrian

This mode will deactivate all the cheat codes in the game and all possible parameters (death/constant) and set the player into the unending chaos of Lord of Game mode... [This mode is more difficult than Suicide.] Your only main weapon is the Atomic Railgun. You don't have any Rear Weapons (Unless you pick up the Hot Dog icon in the secret level Sawblades in Episode 3), therefore, all Rear Weapon Power-Ups you could encounter in Full Game mode are replaced by the standard Special Weapons: Repulsor, Pearl Wind, Attractor, Soul Of Zinglon, Flare and Ice Beam. In Episode 4, the Level Ice Secret, gives you the opportunity to get the MegaLaser Dual/SDF Main Gun.

To activate the mode, type in ENGAGE at the title screen. If you manage to win, you learn the final Super Arcade Mode ship. (Unless you are playing the wimp version of Super Tyrian…)

While playing the game, the player has access to 20 different Super Weapons:

WEAPONS
These are the twiddles to fire weapons. The Lightning shots won't cost anything, so you can use them as many times as you want. The other weapon twiddles can make you even more vulnerable, so use them only when you need them. Try to rely on other special weapons as many times as possible.
Atom Bomb|-2 Armor|Right, Left, Down, Hold fire and Up
Guided Bomb Cluster| -2 Armor|Left, Right, Hold fire and Down
HotDog Blast|-1 Armor|Up, Hold fire and Down
Ice Blast|-3 Shield|Down, Hold fire and Up
Lightning [5 directions]Up:From a resting position, push Up and fire.
Left:From a resting position, push Left and fire.
Right:From a resting position, push Right and fire.
Up/Left:Push Up, then Left and fire.
Up/Right:Push Up, then Right and fire.
MineSpray|-4 Armor|Hold fire and push right, down, left, then release and push up
Post-It Blast|-5 Armor |Push left, Hold fire and push down, right, then up
Protron Field|1/2 Shield|Up, Hold fire and push left then down
Spin Wave|1/2 Shield|Hold fire and spin clockwise about twice


DEFENSE
These are the special defenses useable at any time. However they can make you much more vulnerable at critical points in certain levels.
Invulnerability|ALL Shield|Up, Left, the hold fire and Down
Repulsor|-1 Shield|Hold fire and push left then right
Repair System|ALL Shield|Down and Hold Fire


COMPANIONS
Companionships are ships that travel along with your ship, only they stay a second or two behind your movements.
Companion Ship Warfly|Right, Down, Left, then hold fire and Up.(Activation twice will give you 2 Warfly Companions)
Companion Ship Gerund|Down, Right, then hold fire and Up.(Activation twice will give you 2 Gerund Companions)


ATTACHMENTS
These can be generated to replace the right sidekick. Using the Alt-key on your Keyboard, you can launch the attachment forward until the north edge of the screen, then it will retreat back to your ship.
Attachment FrontBlaster|Left, Up, Down, then hold fire and Right.(Replaces Companion Ship #2)
Attachment FireBomb|Left, Right, Down, then hold fire and Right.(Replaces Companion Ship #2)
Attachment Indigo|Up, Right, then hold fire and Down.(Replaces Companion Ship #2)

~~~~~~

OTHER TIPS:
In the difficulty selection screen, type a capital G for the difficulty Impossible, type then } for the difficulty Suicide, and for the greatest challenge, type then after the previous 2 L+O+R+D for the Lord Of Game Difficulty.

Normal Super Weapons:
Full Game / Arcade Game / 2 player Arcade
Repulsor: Repels enemy shots
Pearl Wind: Fires pearls upward
Soul of Zinglon: Giant constant laser beam
Attractor: Attracts coins, gems, weapon pods and power-ups.
Ice Beam: Freezes enemies
Flare: Causes random explosions all over the screen

~~~~~~~

Super Arcade Modes:
To enter Super Arcade Mode type one of the codes in Red below. During this mode weapon pods are changed to coloured pods. Each colour will give you a certain weapon, and the weapon level will depend on how many pods of any colour you've collected. There are no rear weapons available so hitting enter will switch between two special weapons instead. Holding down either of the sidekick keys will fire the special weapon as fast as possible. Each ship has a different set of front weapons. All cheat codes are disabled. The Special Weapons will last longer if you level up.

Here's MY Ultimate Ship:

Ship: Prototype Stalker C, Nort Ship-ZImage or The Stalker 21.126

Front Weapon: LaserImage

Rear Weapon: Guided MicroBombs Image

SideKick Right: BattleShip Class FireBombImage

Special: Repulsor/Astral Zone (with Alternating Zica Laser levels)/SDF Main GunImage

Shield: MicroCorp HXS Class C

Generator: Gravitron Pulse-Wave

I can blast my way through everything with this at the highest difficulty level (Lord Of Game)

Favourite Missile: Image
This missile, better known as the Asteroid City Bomb, is the Ultimate Missile. This can cause MEGA damages to every enemy, and you can lay waste to bosses with only two or three of these!

Two Player mode:
Player 2 has the capability to charge its weapon that fires to the front up to a very powerful blast. The fully charged version is recognisable by two small blue balls orbiting a large one at the ship. Here is the list with the weapons that have these Charged Blasts (the description leads to the Full Powered Versions):

Starburst -> StarWave: A small wave of more Stars.

Multi Cannon -> Super Blast: Two Gigantic Blasts with two smaller ones, sneering through its targets!

Sonic Wave -> Sonic WAVE: When fully charged, it will release a gigantic glowing wave, which also sneers through its targets!

Protron Rear -> Super Orbit Balls: When Fully Charged, an Orange, slow travelling blast is released, also sneering through targets and scenery.

Wild Ball -> More Wild Balls: The Fully Powered version results in two giant Bloe, nearly transparent balls, also causing a lot of damage.

Rear Vulcan -> Rapid Vulcan: A small wave of Vulcan Shots.

Rear Heavy Missile -> More Heavy Missiles: At full charge it's the same as the Heavy Missile Launcher Front at Level 11, only with two additional missiles.

Rear Mega Pulse -> More Mega Pulse: The bullets are small, and look like the bullets of the Rear Mega Pulse, only without the tail. When Fully powered, it's behaviour and power is the same as the Normal Front Mega Pulse at Level 11.

If you get excited of this, then go here:

You can download the entire Full Version of the game for free! And I'm NOT joking!


The Tempest is an advanced assault vehicle, which carries two heavy Heat-Rays and a Canister Launcher.
