Dare Devil

Has anyone out there managed to get the Dare Devil achievement yet? Any tips out there? Now that the Beam Me Up! cheevo has been sorted this is probably the toughest offline achievement IMO in the game.

I can do level 2 fine using rapid fire. Here are my tips for level 2:

It a case of firing like mad and dodging like crazy. Thankfully there aren't any aliens that fire shots at you on this level apart from the snake thing on the run up to the boss and the boss fight itself. However shooting out its body parts destroys its ability to fire at you until it regenerates once it goes back into the alien hive. For the boss on level 2 you need to plant your ship at the top of the blue thing that pops out of alien hive just off to the left a bit and fire like mad. This will put you out of collision range with the snake as it loops about. You may need to dodge the odd occasional shot from the snake though.

It's level 1 that is the problem for me. It's the 2 large orange dudes that fire rockets that you have to face just before the boss fight. Problem is one of them stays with you and remains on screen on the left during the boss fight. And they take a huge amount of shots to kill off. In fact I've yet to destroy one yet. Any tips for this bit, as the rest of level 1 is fairly straightfoward with practice?

Please take a look, I just get the "Beam Me Up!", but this one is really HARD for me.

this video is very helpful, thanks.

does this have to all be done in 3 lives or can you continue if you mess up and get this achievement to pop?

Thanks for this video, this should prove very useful.

Looking at it I think he made it a bit harder for himself than I found myself on Stage 1 travelling through the base. It's the section with the 2 orange rocket firing bastards that looks to be the bit that makes or breaks this achievement. I think a fair degree of skill and luck will be needed to get through that bit.

Stage 2 in comparison I reckon is a lot easier. On stage 2 at the bit just before you fly through a narrower section just before the snake first appears you hit a checkpoint. So if you can get to where it narrows and you die, its not so tough as then you have a clean run through to the boss fight. With the stage 2 boss I'm wondering if you can just concentrate on the snake only, so if you don't destroy the boss the level should end anyway. This may still award the achievement without having to risk sitting on top of the boss like he does in the video?

Regarding the continuing question, good point. I guess will have to try it out and see. In the process of trying I suppose you can refine your technique!!

I saw this earlier when it was the OP. I see someone beat me to the punch. I do quite a few things "easier" than the other guy who posted a video. So maybe collect info from both and use it to the best of your knowledge.


for those interested. Also on the 2nd boss, a lot of times your fire disappears on the eye. I was trying to get it so the beam would go through the eye. Thus dying.

You cannot continue to get this achievement. I used two or three continues but made sure I only used rapid fire and got no power ups but still did not get the achievements. So I think you can die, but no continues.
