You have to finish and save the game under the normal difficulty setting to unlock the "Chubby Isle Paradiso" (Fat Island), "Storming The Mothership" (UFO), and "Ending Feature" options at the main menu.
When your down to your last life on arcade mode press start on controller 2. This starts you off on player 2's controller when your in a tough spot, giving 3-5 new men. This is helpful for Mission 5 or some of the harder bosses. If you're quick enough you can die on the player 1 controller and press start on controller 2 and still continue. The only flaw to this is you wont be able to select the same character you had as player 1.
Stage 1: Hidden areas
Near the beginning of the first stage, you will see a submarine floating in a pool of water. Hold Down to walk into this area and hop into the sub to go to an underwater part of the stage. The next hidden area is at the part where the boat is located. Instead of getting on it, hop onto the ledge above it to find a secret hatch. Go inside to enter a cave-like part of the stage. Note: Every time you complete a secret area, you will go directly to the Crab Boss --- you cannot go in both hidden areas during the same turn.
Stage 2: Get Thunder Cloud
In the stage with the zombies, you can get the very helpful Thunder Cloud. Around the middle of the level, you will see a spot on a low area of ground where two prisoners are next to a man in a business suit. Hold Down/Forward to crawl down to this area and save them. Note: Enemies cannot get you down here. When you rescue the man in the suit, he will pull out a cell phone and call over two bodyguards with suitcases which contain a gold coin and the Thunder Cloud. To use it, just shoot your gun when the cloud hovers over an enemy.
Stage 2: Hidden area
The level containing the zombies has a secret and unique area. About the end of the middle part of the level, you will see a sign above a frozen-shut cave reading "ICEMAN". Walk to the left to go over here and shoot the ice wall blocking the entrance. Inside are numerous "ice men" and at the end of the cave is a buried Elephant Slug, frozen in the ground which you can free and ride.
Stage 4: Slave helper
Get to the second truck alive. Destroy the three helicopters and the truck. Jump over the truck and you will see a sandbag. Crouch and shoot backwards at the sandbag until you destroy it. There will be a tied up man underneath it. Free him and he will help you destroy the tanks and airplanes to come. His attack is similar to a Dragonball Z lightning ball strike.
