Silver-Hawk model model Twin, is a Silver-Hawk spacecraft from Darius Twin.

Its original color is green, while in 2 player mode it is blue and red.

Weapons[]

Like its predecessors, the Silver-Hawk model TWIN uses a tier-type weapon system, which allows it to utilize different weapons upon obtaining colored power-ups:

  • Laser Cannon - a standard, rapid-fire projectile that can destroy smaller Belsar forces easily, but requires more firepower on larger enemies and bosses. Upgrading the weapon using pink power-ups will increase the firepower, allowing it to deal more damage and fire more lasers at once.
    • Napalm Cannon - upon reaching tier 2, the laser will transform into a spherical napalm projectile, increasing its size and damage significantly. Upgrading it will increase damage and the number of shots fired.
    • Wave - upon reaching tier 3, the napalm cannon will transform into a wave-shaped projectile, which is not only bigger and more powerful than the napalm cannon, but is also able to penetrate enemies. Upgrading the weapon will increase the size of the wave projectile.
    • Darius Laser - upon collecting the first of two red, octagonal power-ups, the Silver-Hawk will substitute its main weapon for the laser from Darius. The weapon retains its firepower, but lacks its penetration effect from the original game, likely as a counterbalance for the fact that it is now rapid-fire. Upgrading the weapon will increase the width of the laser.
    • Darius II Napalm Beam - upon collecting the second of two red, octagonal power-ups, the Silver-Hawk will substitute its main weapon for the napalm beam from Darius II. The weapon retains its firepower, but lacks its penetration effect from the original game. Upgrading the weapon will increase the width of the beam.
  • Bomb - a standard, sub-weapon that fires a bomb at a 90 degree arc down, making it useful for dealing with ground enemies. Upgrading the weapon will allow the Silver-Hawk to fire two, and later four bombs in all four directional corners.
    • 4-Way Laser - upon reaching tier 2, the bombs will transform into the directional lasers from Darius II, which fire faster and deal more damage than the bombs. Upgrading the weapon will increase the width and the number of lasers fired in each direction.
    • Plasma Beam - upon reaching tier 3, the lasers will transform into a plasma beam, which in addition to dealing more damage, also penetrates enemies. Upgrading the weapon will increase the width.
  • Arm - upon obtaining a blue power-up, the Silver-Hawk will activate a green shield, which will absorb up to three hits from both enemy projectiles, and collisions with Belsar's and terrain. Collecting multiple power-ups will replenish the shield.
    • Super Arm - upon reaching tier 2, the shield will turn silver and absorb up to four hits.
    • Hyper Arm - upon reaching tier 3, the shield will turn gold and absorb up to five hits.
