Yeah, the powerups are randomized by three different object types I placed around the map. They basically drop powerups according to three levels:

Level 1:
-- 30% Force Shield
-- 30% Whirlwind Shield
-- 40% Super Ring

Level 2:
-- 20% Force Shield
-- 20% Whirlwind Shield
-- 20% Attraction Shield
-- 20% Elemental Shield
-- 20% Super Ring

Level 3:
-- 10% Force Shield
-- 10% Whirlwind Shield
-- 20% Attraction Shield
-- 20% Elemental Shield
-- 20% Armageddon Shield
-- 20% Extra Life

Level 1 drops are in easy to reach places that often involve little risk. They also tend to be closer to the beginning of the bonus stage.

Level 2 drops are in moderately difficult places to reach, and tend to be more common in the later part of the stage.

Level 3 drops are in hard or risky places to reach, and tend to be more common in the later part of the stage.
