Note Point 1:
The names of some characters have no English translation, so until then, the following interpretations are based on my own readings. For example; ティニー is read as Tini, but is changed in the guide to a more English friendly name.

Note Point 2:
All achievement titles have an English translation (once again, not official), and all descriptions have been translated to English.

Note Point 3:
Mission Achievements do not unlock until the end of a stage, so even if you fulfill the criteria for each mission task, you'll need to defeat the boss to unlock it.

CHAPTER ACHIEVEMENTS: ジャック確保 (Jack Secured) 30 :gsicon:

You'll unlock this by natural progression through the game. It can be done on any difficulty, so if you get overwhelmed, switch to Easy, collecting extra lives to help out. ティニー確保 (Teeny Secured) 30 :gsicon:

See ジャック確保 (Jack Secured) for more info. ジャッジメントフォース タイガー (Judgment Force Tiger) 30 :gsicon:
Clear Story Mode Chapter X

This mission has you running through an assortment of enemies, testing your skills with three different ships to choose from. If you're comfortable with the game, and feel like you can plan accordingly, you'll be glad to know on Easy difficulty, this isn't too bad. You'll have to run through 32 levels to reach the end. You earn an Extend every five levels. ジャッジメントフォース ドラゴン (Judgment Force Dragon) 30 :gsicon:
Clear Story Mode Chapter Y

This is a bit more harder as the enemies are no longer stationary. It's a bit like Asteroids, except with bullets and homing enemies to liven things up. Enemies can appear on the opposite side of where there were, so be cautious about your surroundings, and use everything you can to survive. There are 32 levels, with a 'boss' appearing at 16 and 32. Ship B is my recommended choice, as the bomb ability combined with the 'rescue shield' will save you in many delicate situations.

STORY ACHIEVEMENTS: イージークリア (Easy Clear) 10 :gsicon:
Story Mode Clear on Easy

Finish all 10 chapters. Basic rules to clearing the later levels is to use a good combo that can take down enemy health at a faster rate in exchange for high score runs. Counter Shield II is a must as it can save you if you're using it and get hit by a bullet or projectile. If you still have trouble, collect lives on the stage (appear randomly) and fail soon after to keep it in your total.

For Hard mode, after 30 hours of total play, you'll unlock an Extra Item called God/Mode which will allow you to pass through harder stages with permanent invincibility. You can use this all the way up to Chapter 10, and then farm the final boss for as many lives as you need to beat him.

By this time, you should have enough to buy Demolish Ion Gun (120000CR) and Option Bit IV Quadral 2 (80000CR) which are the most powerful direct shot weapons. Ultimate Charge Bomb (80000CR) should be your Special Weapon as it can stop bullets that come into contact with it, and has an auto barrier. ノーマルクリア (Normal Clear) 30 :gsicon:
Story Mode Clear on Normal

See イージークリア (Easy Clear) for more info. ハードクリア (Hard Clear) 50 :gsicon:
Story Mode Clear on Hard

See イージークリア (Easy Clear) for more info. ストーリーモード全チャプタープレイ (Story Mode Entire Chapter Play) 10 :gsicon:
Played all chapters within Story Mode

This includes the X and Y Training stages. You do not have to finish these or Chapter 10 to the end, just start them and get to the result screen. タイムアタッカー (Time Attacker) 10 :gsicon:
The total time for every chapter cleared on any difficulty had come under an hour! (Story Mode only. Special Chapter included)

This will end up being difficult, almost impossible from the start, as you'll need to unlock stronger weapons by playing through the higher difficulties. Ultimate Charge Bomb is the best special weapon to have as it can do quite a lot of damage when fully charged, which will cut time during boss fights. The main and sub weapons are mostly a matter of choice.

Your total time can be found under the Report option in Story Mode. 稼ぎ頭 (Huge Earning) 50 :gsicon:
Accumulative total 1,000,000 Credits reached (Story Mode only)

Self explanatory. You'll earn this while playing, for a more estimated time, most likely while playing through Normal difficulty after finishing Easy. そしてベテランへ (And So We Went To Veteran) 10 :gsicon:
Accumulative score has exceeded 500 million! (Story Mode only)

This will probably be one of the last achievements you'll need, as you will not have enough points after finishing Hard difficulty, but should have at least 300 million by then. You'll have to keep playing through stages to increase the remaining amount of points needed for the total score. You can play Chapter 10 on Easy, and get anything between two and three million points in under a minute.

MISSION ACHIEVEMENTS: チャプター1 ミッション達成 (Chapter 1 Mission Accomplished) 30 :gsicon:
Clear with a High Rank for Boss parts destruction rate (Story Mode only)

There are three parts you need to destroy during the boss fight, you shouldn't have any problems getting this with starting weapons. チャプター2 ミッション達成 (Chapter 2 Mission Accomplished) 30 :gsicon:
Clear with the searchlight exposed on the boss completely (Story Mode only)

You'll need to shoot the searchlights that appear from the right, left and center until the boss ship is no longer transparent. This will need to be done in two sections through the stage. チャプター3 ミッション達成 (Chapter 3 Mission Accomplished) 30 :gsicon:
Clear while shooting down both missiles (Story Mode only)

The boss ship will fire two missiles. You'll have 60 seconds to take them both down before they hit the tower. チャプター4 ミッション達成 (Chapter 4 Mission Accomplished) 30 :gsicon:
Clear with a High Rank for Boss parts destruction rate (Story Mode only)

There are eight parts you need to destroy throughout the stage while fighting the large ship. The ship itself doesn't count towards the total. チャプター5 ミッション達成 (Chapter 5 Mission Accomplished) 30 :gsicon:
Clear with a High Rank for Septonium collection (Story Mode only)

Septonium are the blue crystals that are carried by the rail cars. One of the carts has a yellow shell, this is what holds the carts together. When you destroy this part, the Septonium from the other carts are drawn to your ship. You'll need at least 150 pieces by the end of the stage to earn High Rank. チャプター6 ミッション達成 (Chapter 6 Mission Accomplished) 30 :gsicon:
Clear while successful on escort of the shuttle (Story Mode only)

Once you reach the boss at the top of the shuttle, shoot him off before the time expires. チャプター7 ミッション達成 (Chapter 7 Mission Accomplished) 30 :gsicon:
Clear while destroying the two elevators (Story Mode only)

The elevator is a cylinder crafted of blocks, which is protected by gun turrets. You'll need to shoot them all down before the time expires for both of them. チャプター8 ミッション達成 (Chapter 8 Mission Accomplished) 30 :gsicon:
Clear with a High Rank for shot down rate on enemies in the second half (Story Mode only)

After the cutscene where you enter the tunnel, you'll have to defeat the legged machines here. By this point, you should have much stronger weapons to take them down before they go off screen. The minimal amount you need to destroy for High Rank is 30. チャプター9 ミッション達成 (Chapter 9 Mission Accomplished) 30 :gsicon:
Clear with a High Rank for Boss parts destruction rate (Story Mode only)

Before attempting this, you'll need a weapon capable of shooting to the side, as there are two laser guns each on the left and right side of the ship which can be hard to hit directly. The minimum amount of parts you need to destroy for High Rank is 30.

SIDE MISSION ACHIEVEMENTS: 安地発見!? (Anchi Detected!?) 10 :gsicon:
Chapter 1's starting battle scene was broken with force! (Story Mode only) セキュリティ突破 (Security Breach) 10 :gsicon:
Clear while undetected by searchlight with no Jamming Unit usage during Chapter 2! (Story Mode only)

After the first part where you need to shoot the searchlights to reveal the boss, you'll come across a section with moving lights. Avoid coming into contact with them for about a minute. If you get trapped in a corner, you can run into enemies to respawn with the added bonus of not being able to set the alarm off for a few seconds.

You can use the Slow ability to make this section easier to move through. 破壊の順番 (Sequence of Destruction) 10 :gsicon:
Took the strategic turn of center→left→right for Chapter 9's path (Story Mode only)

You'll have to destroy the engines in the specific order as mentioned in the description.

hoshinosenshi 02-16-2013 04:55 AM

SCORE ATTACK ACHIEVEMENTS: オンラインランキングエントリー (Online Ranking Entry) 30 :gsicon:
Uploaded a score to the online rankings!

Finish any stage in Score Attack, after the final score, you'll be asked if you want to upload your score. スコアアタック全チャプタープレイ (Score Attack Entire Chapter Play) 10 :gsicon:
Played all chapters within Score Attack

You don't need to clear every chapter to the end, so if you want to get this quickly, crash into enemies for each chapter to reach the result screen. Chapter X and Y are included. 100回プレイ (100 Times Played) 10 :gsicon:
Play count for Score Attack has exceeded to 100 times!

As mentioned above, you can lose all your ships at the start and this will count as one play. This should take around a minute each time, meaning this will take under two hours if you want to boost it that way.

MISCELLANEOUS ACHIEVEMENTS: 鑑賞 (Appreciation) 10 :gsicon:
Playback a rival's replay

Under Score Attack, choose the Leaderboards option, and then browse an individual chapter in the option. Any score with a paperclip by the player's name contains a replay. Press Y and then choose OK on the prompt to download the replay.

Next, go to Gallery Mode at the main menu, then select Replay Theater. Load the data with A button. NICE RECOVERY! 10 :gsicon:
Revived by acquiring an Extend Item just before a Game Over!

You can do this anywhere, so you'll likely get it by playing eventually. If you do want it quickly, load up Chapter 1 on Easy with no lives set and then destroy your ship as soon as you see an Extend pickup. 最大警備 (Maximum Defense) 10 :gsicon:
Increased upto max (30 stock) for your initial lives on any chapter! (Story Mode only)

This may be better to go for while playing Hard, as you may need as many lives as you can get. Extend items drop from enemies randomly, and will save to your overall stock when you reach the result screen. バックアタック返し (Back Attack Reversal) 10 :gsicon:
Destroy an enemy with backfire from switchover time!

This isn't possible with the Uni Engine, as it has a fixed speed. カスタムコーディネート (Custom Coordinate) 10 :gsicon:
Selected specific equipment (Heavy Laser Gun, Homing Missile, Counter Shield) ソールドアウト (Sold Out) 50 :gsicon:
Purchase all items from the Shop (Additional content not included)

Even after finishing Hard, you will still not be able to buy everything. You'll need to grind CR by replaying chapters. You can get a lot playing through Hard with God/Mode equipped. Having one of the auto CR pickup items will help.

Reserve post 4.

hoshinosenshi 02-16-2013 04:56 AM

Reserve post 5.

hoshinosenshi 02-16-2013 04:57 AM

Last reserve. Once I get the game, I'll be constantly hooked up to record everything, so I can now provide videos for most achievements along with the usual text guide. Anyone who gets the game early, if you could provide insight into anything outside the obvious (clear chapter x), then I'll add it.

VixyNyan 02-20-2013 01:40 AM

Minimum "in-game" hours to finish this game is at least 30 "Story mode" hours, because of one extra item in the shop that only appears then. ^^;

For Mission 9, the amount of boss parts to destroy for High Rank is roughly 30. I got 31 parts destroyed on that chapter, but you can do even more than that.

hoshinosenshi 02-22-2013 06:11 PM

Chapter 4 boss parts...
Missile launcher on left and right side
Machine gun cannon towards the center on left and right
Main ship before boss fight
plus two parts I can't figure out.

This equals seven parts, yet is NOT enough for the high rank. I've been through the stage 15+ times and can't find any spots to shoot. Need more info.

Ow Nitram 02-22-2013 10:23 PM

You need to destroy the 8 parts of the boss:

1x Orange thing in the middle of the ship (must be destroy early)
2x Engines
2x Missile launchers
3x Grey and purple UFOs (before the boss battle)

Laser lv. 2 is recommanded to take down each part fast.

Hope it help.

hoshinosenshi 02-23-2013 12:24 AM

Thanks so much, I neglected that orange orb in the middle, but as you said, you'd have to get it pretty quickly. I'll have a video up within a couple of days.

hoshinosenshi 02-24-2013 09:27 PM

For Chapter 9 boss, I'm only getting 29 parts, which is one short of high rank.

Left engine
Left beam gun
Left hatch
Middle engine
Missile door (16 parts)
Right engine
Right beam gun
Right hatch
Cannon above hatch
Large turret (2 parts)
Cannon above hatch

Edit: Figured it out, the four laser beams on the sides of the ship count also, but the only way to take them down is with a weapon that shoots to the side. I'll have a video up soon.

hoshinosenshi 02-27-2013 05:28 AM

Video guides are done, I'm going back to finish Hard mode now. I'll clean up the starting info after that.

...and done. Guide is complete.

amacteur 02-28-2013 02:57 PM

I'm still waiting for my copy to be delivered... thanks in advance for your guide :)

AssassinDK 03-31-2013 10:25 PM

Good guide! I just need a translation of the in-game weapons and items, and what the 3 stats for each weapon indicate, if anyone knows? I assume one of the 3 stats in weapon power.

Edit: Nevermind. Found a good translation of the items in the shop :)

SideshowN 04-13-2013 10:29 AM

Thanks for the guide. I'm loving this game as much as Eschatos.:woop:

Mr Jim 05-01-2013 05:45 PM

チャプター5 ミッション達成 (Chapter 5 Mission Accomplished) 30 Gs
Clear with a High Rank for Septonium collection (Story Mode only)
You'll need at least 150 pieces by the end of the stage to earn High Rank, not 140.I got 149 and chevo not pop up.
Btw.Great guide ;)

hoshinosenshi 05-03-2013 03:19 AM

I had a feeling that 140 wasn't the minimum which is why I left that detail out on the video, but without a clear confirmation, I had to leave it around there in the guide. Thanks for confirming!

I'm glad the guide is helping everyone. =D

a_correa4 06-27-2014 04:38 AM

Really nice guide, big thumbs up! NOBODY has any info on this game until I came across your guide! Thanks again for the help
