To access special shields first have charge beam on and power bombs selected.
Ice shield: turn on ice beam, charge up, and hit down you will have a shield of 4 ice stars when it hits something you loose a star and you freeze it. (Note that some creatures need to be frozen by a star more than once.)
Spazer shield: turn on spazer, charge up, and hit down and you will have spazer beams shooting everywhere for a short amount of time.
Wave shield: turn on wave, charge up, and hit down and a big "x" will be guarding you for a short amount of time.
NOTE: These shields won't work if you don't have power bombs selected, charge beam on, and if you have any other beam on other than charge and 1 of your other beams.
