Cheats, Tricks, Bugs, and Easter Eggs

Kill the last enemy and destroy your last ship at the same moment. The epilog will run but without your ship and the game will suspend after the epilog with a black screen. This will sometimes happen in a normal game, too. The game has to be re- booted. Collect as many items at the last ememy: every one awards points after you finished the game.
