exA Label[edit]


  • Grazing charges hyper.
  • Rank increases bullets and bee/bomb/1up cancel duration.
  • Hypers cancel to small stars on activation and big stars on activation resulting in rank >= 100.
  • Cancelling bullets increases hits and gives some points.
  • Star values are multiplied by hit counter.
  • Bombing cancels to big stars on start and then for duration cancels to small stars.

X Arrange[edit]

X Arrange is inspired from the Xbox 360 exclusive arrange, with the below notable differences:

  • The HP counter continuously drains during gameplay. It is possible to replenish it by picking up items or destroying bosses.
  • Shot is the same difficulty as Laser.
  • Slowdown is based on exA Label.

HP Counter[edit]

The HP counter continuously drains at an estimated rate of 20 HP / second. It is halved during boss fights to 10 HP / second.

The following actions affect the counter:

  • Destroying a boss: +1000
  • Destroying a midboss: +800
  • Picking up the 8th bee in a stage: +500
  • Destroying a boss part: +400
  • Picking up a bee item: +200
  • Picking up a big star during hyper: +7
  • Picking up a small star during hyper: +3
  • Picking up a big star outside of hyper: +1
  • Manual bomb: -1200
  • Autobomb: -2000



A few non-game-breaking bugs are present, mostly related to Freeplay and mode disable.

  • When other modes are disabled, pressing the start button in freeplay during the demonstration will start a credit with 3 lives, even if the default was changed in the test menu.
  • If only exA Label is enabled, pressing left and start on the title menu will disable the music in stage instead of switching to the original soundtrack.
