Tyrian, the Wiki

"Twiddles" are special weapons from Tyrian which are tied to each ship. They are activated by executing button combinations similar to those of fighting games. However, depending of the command it will also completely drain your shields so be careful when using them.

The Ship Editor documentation calls them "Street Fighter-like commands (or 'twiddles', as one person so oddly put it)", while the Cheat documentation calls them "Inane Super Weapons".

Twiddles List[]

NOTE: "HF" means you have to hold the fire button. "RF" means you have to release the fire button.
