Unlockables
This is a list of cool things you can unlock in the game that don't have anything to do with the achievements; however, some of those may help a lot with the beyond mode related achievements.

"Secret" ending: If you manage to shoot 100% of the enemies down in area 5, you will see a somewhat special ending (you can also take a look at it on Youtube if you are too lazy).

Beyond mode: This mode will unlock once you beat the game (by completing area 5 in play mode). It allows you to tweak your character and also has a few extra areas that you can play. Included is also the direct assault mode which will allow you to play through the game completely in one go.

Infinite Overdrives: If you score first in boss rush mode (over 300.000 points), you can activate this in the beyond mode options. You will always have overdrives ready then; sadly this only works in beyond mode
Important! With this option activated, your score will not be ranked and you will also not be able to get the Trance Hacker achievement. You can still obtain in-game unlockables however, so e.g. it does work for unlocking all assault modes (see Trance hacker achievement above for more info).

Immortal: If you finish the Trance Hacker achievement - meaning you finish direct assault (trance) - you will get this beyond mode option unlocked. As the name says, you will be invincible in this mode.
Important! With this option activated, your score will not be ranked and you will also not be able to get the Firewall buster achievement. You can still obtain in-game unlockables, but you will have to beat boss rush without this activated in order to unlock the achievement.
