[top]Tips & Strategies

- If you hold , hover over the Treasure level and press trigger in Arcade Mode you can play it without completing the previous levels.
- Get the special shot jewel when available as soon as it pops up - most levels have a lot of enemies appear right when the special shot jewel appears.
- Extra credits are awarded for each successful or failed attempt at completing Arcade mode. If you're struggling to get through the game then fail deliberately to accrue more credits to use for continues.
- Search the levels for hidden chests, hard to reach enemies and destructible objects to help achieve S ranks.

[top]Trophies

[top]
Ruler of the Seven Seas
Clear all stages in Arcade Mode from Stormy Sea onward without continues.

One of the harder trophies in the game. You need to complete the Mountain Stream, Cave, Great Whirlpool and Treasure levels without using a single continue. The practice you've earned from previous playthroughs is invaluable here.

A tip you can use to achieve this is to activate Player 2 just before starting the Treasure level and if you die as Player 1 DO NOT CONTINUE - instead keep playing as Player 2. This should give you an increased chance as the Treasure level is the most likely level to die on.

Navigator of the High Seas
Obtain an S rank in all stages.

Another hard trophy. Play each level in Arcade mode. No requirements are stated on how to achieve an S rank on a level, however the following seems to be the best route:

- Get hit as little as possible
- Shoot all enemies
- Shoot all treasure chests
- Shoot all destructible objects (barrels, crates etc.)
- Complete the Wheel Action events in the fastest time

I would advise attempting each level on Very Easy and learn where each chest/destructible object is, where each enemy appears and direction changes for any Wheel Action events.

Once you thoroughly know the level and if you haven't achieved the S rank you can increase the difficulty level and try again as the game seems to be more forgiving of mistakes the harder the difficulty is. The difficulty from Very Easy to Normal isn't too bad if you know the level well.

I found it helped to make a written note of each attempt, noting the final points total at the end as well as difficulty. It gives you something to aim for.

For the S rank on the Treasure level - you can hold , hover over the Treasure level and press trigger to play it without completing any of the previous levels.

S rank's can be earned over multiple playthroughs - the game will always show the highest achieved rank for each level.

Captain of the Sea

[top]
Sharpshooter
Obtain a 'Nice Combination!' rating 100 times.

This should come naturally through the several playthroughs required to 100% the game. Simply kill enough enemies in a chain to earn a 'Nice Combination!' rating and repeat another 99 times. If you need to grind out any remaining combos then start an Arcade mode game on Very Easy, complete all the levels and repeat as necessary. The 100 combos required are cumulative and can be achieved over multiple playthroughs.

The level is unlocked once you've completed the Stormy Sea, Mountain Stream Cave & Great Whirlpool levels in the same playthrough, however if you hold , hover over the Treasure level and press trigger you can play it without completing the previous levels.

[top]
A New Beginning
Register a score in Ranking Mode.

From the main menu select Ranking Mode and set the difficulty to Normal. Earn any score and when the game ends the Leaderboard will load and the trophy will unlock. You do not need to complete the game or even a single level, just register a score!

[top]
Synchronized Shooting
Reach a Teamwork Level of 100%.

From the main menu select Arcade Mode, 2 players. Both players must shoot at enemies in the same screen area for the entire level in order to achieve the required 100% Teamwork Level. The shooting reticule will highlight so it looks different when both players are in the same screen area. If both players are practised enough this is not too difficult.

The best level to achieve this on is Stormy Seas as it is the shortest. Ensure you avoid the special shot jewels as the Teamwork Level will not increase when the special shot power is active.

[top]
Davy Jones' Locker
Reach a total of 10000 kills.

This should come naturally through the several playthroughs required to 100% the game. If you need to grind out any remaining kills then start an Arcade mode game on Very Easy, complete all the levels and repeat as necessary. The 10000 kills required are cumulative and can be achieved over multiple playthroughs.
