Get all three hidden Crowns in any Sector.
In every sector besides the boss fights, there are three hidden Crowns. They only appear once they are hit from your ships weapons so spotting them can be quite tricky at times. The best method to finding them is to use the machine gun and collect upgrades for it to make spotting them easier. Simply find all three Crowns in any sector and you'll unlock the trophy.
You Make Me Wish I Had Three Hands
Use each weapon one time.
You can switch between the three different weapons the ship uses by pressing either :square: or :circle: and fire using the
trigger. Simply fire each weapon one time, then switch to the next and repeat until you've tried all three and this trophy is yours.
Defeat 50 enemies using the Charge Attack.
To use the charge attack you need to hold the
button until your ship fully charges up. Then once you release
your ship will fly in whatever direction you were pressing. Simply defeat 50 enemies with your fully charged ship and you'll unlock this trophy. However, you should get it when going for the Spin Long and Prosper
trophy during sector 1-1.
You Are the Pris to My Roy
Complete any Sector by playing with a friend in co-op mode.
For this trophy you'll need two controllers. During the stage selection, press
on the second controller to get them to join the game. Then you need to select and finish a sector and you'll unlock this trophy. You should select either sectors 1-4, 2-4, or 3-4 as they're a lot shorter than the other sectors. Although sector 1-4 will probably be the easiest.
String together a Combo of 100 points or more.
Every time you kill enemies within a short time, your combo meter will increase. If you play sector 1-1 on the Casual difficulty setting you should have no problem unlocking this trophy by the end of the sector. However, you may end up getting it while progressing through the different stages normally anyways. Also, its worth noting that your combo meter won't break if getting hit. However, if you die it will reset.
Pedal to the Medal
Receive the highest ranking Medal on any Sector.
After finishing each sector you'll be given a star rank depending on your score. The ranks range from one, two, and three stars. However, if you do really well, you'll be given a special medal which is above the three star rank. The easiest way to achieve this medal is to quickly finish the boss in sector 1-4 on the Casual difficulty setting. To do this, use the ships laser weapon and quickly take out both the upper and lower targets until he starts to open his mouth and a smaller enemy appears. Once this happens, keep shooting the enemy that appears once he opens his mouth and hopefully your score will be high enough to earn the trophy. If not, simply retry again.
Q-Beams Glitter in the Dark
Defeat 10 enemies or more using one Laser shot.
During sector 1-1 wait until the third set of enemies appear on the screen. There are two lines of 5 and they will eventually fly together to make one string or line of 10. When they do, aim at the middle of them and fire your laser and you'll destroy all ten of them in one hit and unlock the trophy.
Complete any Sector without getting hit by a single shot.
The easiest place to unlock this trophy is during sector 1-4. Simply play on the Casual difficulty setting and defeat the boss without getting hit. Of you do, just restart the level until you unlock the trophy.
Spin Long and Prosper
Complete any Sector without firing a single shot. (Hint: Use the Charge Attack!)
Just like the trophy title suggests, you'll be using the
charge attack. The best sector to play is 1-1 due to the enemies all being fairly easy. Simply use the charge attack to take out any enemies you need to without using either the machine gun, laser, or bombs. Also its worth noting that if you get hit or die you can still unlock the trophy as long as you don't fire. Once you finish the sector the trophy is yours.
