Access secret stages Golden Valley and Clouds of Twilight

To access the secret stages Golden Valley and Clouds of Twilight in either Score Attack or Arcade mode, you must finish stage 5 (Coastal Industrial Zone) or stage 9A/9B (Iceberg Base/Sea of Clouds) with at least 4 stars. You will then play the secret stage in place of the stage normally encountered (Great River Valley or Sea of Twilight). To earn a star, complete a stage with at least 50% shot down. You will lose one star if you are shot down, and you will lose all stars if you lose all lives and continue the game. You can have a maximum of 5 stars.
