What does Caravan Mode mean and where does the term "Caravan" come from?
Caravan mode is a “score attack” sequence, in which the player is tasked with racking up as many points as possible within a fixed time limit. Relatively few shmups over the years have devoted themselves exclusively to this compressed, “bite-sized” play style, but a more substantial number have included so-called “caravan” modes as extras to complement a more traditional “main” game. The name is derived from a series of “Caravan Festival” tournaments held by Hudson Soft from 1985 to 1992; the most prominently-featured titles at those events, the Star Soldier games, are appropriately the best-known “caravan” shmups" - BulletMagnet of racketboy.com

In BULLET SOUL's Caravan Mode, you're given 2 minutes to rack up the highest score possible on a single stage. Here are some expert tips to get your name near the top of that Leaderboard! :
  • Kill as many enemies as possible, as fast as you can
  • Aggression is the name of the game. Stay as high on the screen as you possibly can
  • Don't die! If you die, you sacrifice precious seconds in the only 2-min score attack. You also get an extra bonus for dying twice or less (never dying obviously being the highest bonus)
  • Mix both shot-types depending on the enemy. Use your spread shot for a slight movement speed boost to get out of sticky situations
  • Learn/memorize where each enemy appears. Repetition is key for achieving high scores
  • Contrary to what some believe, collecting bullet souls does not affect your score
  • See those little green squares? Destroy them.
  • There are also MANY hidden bonuses in Caravan Mode.
