  2. Unlockables

    Reach each goal once in any mode to unlock a new tuning option. Tuning options can be enabled via the touch screen in either Old or New modes and using them enters you into a seperate high score table for each. Reaching all five once unlocks the Arcade Version, which runs the game at 30FPS with minor pop-in to closer emulate the original arcade cabinets. Arcade can be played in both Old or New mode and has it's own high score table for both.
