There are a total of 7 enemies in the game some having different variations.
Terror ants - The weakest enemies in the game; these annoying bugs are weak alone but are dangerous in numbers.
Crimson terror ant - Slightly more powerful than its predecessor.
UFO - These flying purple disks will attack you from the sky. The damage they cause is nominal if you roll away while shooting them down.
Elite UFO - Considerably more powerful than the standard UFO, but is still not too much of a nuisance.
Walking-Tripod - Standing at well over eight stories tall, these four-legged fiends can do a lot of damage if you are surrounded. However, much like their insectoid brethren, they are easily dealt with - using even the most basic weapons - if they're on their own.
Drop-ships - Can only be destroyed from underneath, from where they drop the Ravagers, anywhere else is ineffective.
Saurous - These green Godzilla look-a-likes can be easily defeated with the pale-wing by going around the back of them and pelting them with all the ammunition you've got - as they say "the bigger they are the harder they fall."
Mother-ship - The hardest and largest of the lot; this floating giant, and boss of the game, will surely test your mettle. Defeat her and you've beaten the game "CONGRATULATIONS".
