Keep your ship from falling down and push enemies out of the way.

o Move
 Arrow / Num / [WASD]           / Stick1 (Axis 1, 2)

 [IJKL]                         / Stick2 (Axis 3 or 5, 4)

 Hold a key to open automatic fire and hold the direction of a ship.
 Tap a key to take a turn while firing.

 You can also fire shots with the second stick.
 (If you have a problem with the direction of the stick2, try 
  '-rotatestick2' and '-reversestick2' options.
  e.g. '-rotatestick2 -90 -reversestick2')
 (If you are using xbox 360 wired controller, use
  '-enableaxis5' option.)

 you obtain powerful shots for a while.
