The Egg Searcher wields three respawnable flying guns that are worth 100 points each instead of 0 like in the final. The Searcher itself is also worth 100 points and any guns that the Searcher was armed with upon its defeat will get added in to the point total. (e.g. Searcher with 1 gun = 200 pts.). Defeating a Searcher when it's armed with all three guns earns the player a demo-only Radical! bonus (e.g. Searcher with 3 guns = 400 pts. + Radical).

The Action Gauge starts out empty but is fill-able by defeating enemies although it fills up much more slowly than its final version counterpart. Nothing happens when the Action Gauge is full. The first of the three bottom-right squares are colored in red showing a non-existent Custom Action to be Level 1. The bar below the Action Gauge also has a small bit of red filled in which is always empty in the final.
