Homing rockets appear as a tiny rocket with orange flame coming out of the end, and have one yellow stripe going through them; they are smaller than the regular missiles.
Homing rockets are slower than their cousin the rocket, but more deadly. Homing rockets will come out of the sky in small numbers, and will try home in on the player, thus making them very hard to destroy. Because of this, they have to be jumped over most of the time.
The only way to dodge a homing missile is to wait for the right time; then jump over them. By jumping, the player increases the chances of be hit, so it is advised to gather multiple missiles before jumping.

- Although this is not a glitch, the rockets may sometimes turn when they're about to touch the ground. If this happens, they will not explode when touching the ground - since they didn't touch the ground. They will instead fly up, increasing the player's chance of being hit.
