Although you can buy upgrades on the shop, on occasions enemies will leave a Green orb, which will grant you a random power up.
Wave 6. One of the new enemies introduced are turrets which can only be killed by either a bomb or going down and deal with them that way.
On some waves, a meteor swarm will occur and you can only avoid them, since the meteors are not destructible.
Another enemy introduced in later waves, which will bombard you with missiles.
Another of enemies introduced in later waves is this thing...
Wave 11. One of the last enemies introduced are spinner-like robots that jumps on occasions.
