Introduction:

Welcome to Dodonpachi Resurrection. It is the 5th Dodonpachi game in the series and it was developed by CAVE and published by Rising Star Games. It is the first Dodonpachi game which has been given a PAL release. This game is a bullet-hell shooter and was developed by the same people which made Deathsmiles, Espgaluda II and Mushihime-sama Futari.

Breakdown:
Overall, as the player you will play all four different modes in the game. These modes are "XBOX360", "Arrange A", "Arrange B" and "NOVICE". Most achievements are specific only to a certain mode. If it is not indicated I will inform you of the mode which is the best to play to achieve the achievement as well as the location. There is one thing you should keep in mind whilst trying to get achievements for this game, if an achievement is "public" that means you can obtain it in NOVICE MODE unless it is specified that it must be obtained in another mode. If an achievement is secret, that means it must be obtained in "XBOX360" unless it is otherwise specified. The game consists of 5 different stages and contains hidden routes as well as hidden bosses.

When you first start the game and enter any mode you will earn:

Engage Hostiles.

Upon successfully completing the game on NOVICE MODE or XBOX360 MODE you will earn:

A.I.
NextExy
Perfect*
Ray'n
Shooty

As well as:

TYPE-A
TYPE-B
TYPE-C


Depending on the ship you used.

Novice mode - Novice mode is actually what it says on the tin; it's a watered down version of the game which is significantly easier than it's XBOX360 mode counterpart. It is best to get a feel for the game and learn BEE locations and how the stages pan out. In NOVICE mode you should earn the following achievements:

Taking a detour
Pruning the Tulips
Senko
Raiko
Abominable execution weapon
]-[|/34<#!
2x Bonus
3x Bonus
5x Bonus
A Daunting Task
Suicide Mission
Just Don't Bomb
Bee Completion


XBOX360 mode -
Xbox360 mode is much harder than NOVICE mode. Enemies shoot out more bullets and BOMB pick-ups no longer fully fill your stock of BOMBS, instead they only add one to your gauge. In XBOX360 MODE you will earn:

7x Bonus
KABOOM!!!!
By no means.
BOMB Style Victory
POWER Style Victory
STRONG Style Victory
Slow and Steady Wins the Race
Quitting my Bomb Addiction


ARRANGE A -
ARRANGE A has you use a preselected ship which is exclusive to this mode; it introduces a method of picking up HYPERS and allows you to collect up to 5 HYPER items at once. In ARRANGE A you will earn:

Taking a Detour
White Bee Hive
Full Power!
Charged Up
Extreme Generator
10,000 Hits!
100,000 Hits!
Non-infinite Loop
The One that Got Away...
Humanity's Triumph


ARRANGE B -
ARRANGE B allows you to select any level to play on, whilst playing you kill enemies for points and if you kill multiple enemies in succession they will drop "Expert Items" which further increase your score. It also allows you to customize your ship which adds versatility and affects it's overall performance. In ARRANGE B mode you will earn:

Hyper*Hyper
This One's Free!
UwaAaaAAaAa
God-like Existence
Iron Plate Love
Automatic Transmission
Thank You For Playing
Too Close for Comfort
Lonnnnnng Range
Descent to Hell

Conclusion:
Overall Dodonpachi is a very fun game and it's very addicting, although the game is very difficult it is also very enjoyable and I recommend playing it. If you need any help for any achievement look at the achievement guide below, if it still doesn't help you, post and I or another member of the community will hopefully respond answering your query.

Total Awards: 21 (more» ...)
Engage Hostiles - 5
Start up the game.

To earn this achievement simply enter any mode and select your ship; once the stage loads up the achievement will unlock.


Pruning the Tulips - 5
Destroy the Stage 1 mid-boss "Tulip".

See "Raiko" for more details.


A.I. - 15
Destroy the Stage 1 boss "Element Daughter A.I".

See "Shooty" for more details.


Senko - 10
Destroy the Stage 2 mid-boss "Senko".

See "Raiko" for more details.


NextExy - 15
Destroy the Stage 2 boss "Element Daughter NextExy".

See "Shooty" for more details.


Perfect* - 15
Destroy the Stage 3 boss "Element Daughter Perfect*".

See "Shooty" for more details.


Raiko - 10
Destroy the Stage 4 mid-boss "Raiko".

(Can be unlocked in NOVICE mode)

The mid-boss that the game is referring to is the mid-bosses you VS when in ROUTE B; every level has a mid-boss (2 mid-bosses on stage 5) and most of them are challenging. to earn the achievement you must first enter the secret ROUTE on stage 1; entering the secret route on stage 1 is more efficient as you can unlock all "mid-boss" achievements in 1 playthrough.

To enter the stage 1 secret route you must meet 3 requirements before the mid-boss of stage 1. These requirements are as follows:

  • Destroy 3 (or more) "silos" before the oncoming tanks crush them.
  • Have a full hyper bar upon destruction of the third silo.
  • Do not die.

If all requirements are met you will enter the secret route and will be able to vs the mid-bosses. Upon killing the mid-boss of a stage you will unlock the respective mid-boss achievement for that stage. Also a warning, if you continue or die on a mid-boss, you'll be thrown out of ROUTE B and back into ROUTE A. Therefore you can no longer vs the specific mid-bosses and you will then be forced to restart your playthrough.


Ray'n - 15
Destroy the Stage 4 boss "Element Daughter Ray'n".

See "Shooty" for more details.


Shooty - 15
Destroy the Stage 5 boss "Element Daughter Shooty".

(Can be unlocked in NOVICE mode)
*Continues can be used*

At the end of every level you will fight an elemental doll which are the bosses of the level. As you go through the game the bosses will be harder and harder with the later bosses having more forms and you doing less damage to them. To unlock the "boss" achievements you have to destroy the bosses at the end of each respective stage. All boss achievements can be achieved in 1 playthrough and you are allowed to continue.


Abominable Execution weapon - 30
Destroy "Golden Disaster".

(Can be unlocked in NOVICE)
*Continues NOT allowed*

Golden Disaster is the first hidden boss; you can only fight him if you've met the following conditions after completing the first 5 stages of the game:

Do not continue AND
Collect 35 BEES or
Bomb twice or less or
Die once or less

NOTE: If playing on NOVICE mode BEES will automatically be uncovered, if playing on XBOX360 mode you will need to uncover the BEES with your Laser ()

The best requirement to meet is by collecting 35 BEES, there are normally 7 BEES per level, but if you enter the secret route you will have the opportunity to collect 9 BEES per level. This is recommended as you'll be able to meet the BEES requirement early on and be able to miss out a few BEES on the later stages which allows you to fully concentrate on dodging bullets.

Once you meet the requirements and kill the stage 5 boss you will be prompted to either continue or stop during the cut scene. To fight Golden Disaster select "Continue" and you'll enter the OPEN second loop. This places you back on stage 1 and you will have to complete stage 1 through 5 again; on a harder difficulty.

Once you enter the OPEN second loop you can CONTINUE, so regardless if you take 100 continues by the time you complete stage 5 again you will always fight Golden Disaster. Defeat him and the achievement will unlock.


]-[|/34<#! - 50
Destroy ]-[|/34<#!.

(Can be done in NOVICE mode)
*Continues NOT allowed*


This achievement should be attempted on NOVICE mode. To fight Hibachi you must first enter the HIDDEN second loop; this is similar to the "Abominable Execution Weapon" but it is harder to achieve. To enter the HIDDEN second loop you must meet these requirements:

Die once or less AND Bomb twice or less AND collect all 45 BEES

As you have to collect all 45 BEES you must enter the hidden route on stage 1 and that way you can collect all 9 BEES on every level. I recommend using the TYPE-C ship and POWER STYLE that way you have a large spread of bullets and also have continuous hypers. Make sure you always have a HYPER before every boss or mid-boss.

If you meet all of the requirements during the cut scene after completing stage 5 you will prompted to continue or stop. Select continue, you will be taken back to stage 1 and you will have to complete all of the stages again on a harder difficulty.

Once you enter the HIDDEN second loop you can continue, die or bomb and you will automatically fight Hibachi.

(Can be done in NOVICE mode)
*Continues NOT allowed*

To enter the stage 1 secret route you must meet the following requirements:

  • Destroy 3 (or more) "silos" before the oncoming tanks crush them.
  • Have a full hyper bar upon destruction of the third silo.
  • Do not die.

If all requirements are achieved; you will go left instead of going straight and fighting the normal mid-boss.


Just Don't Bomb - 10
Pick up a 1up item.

(Can be done in NOVICE mode)


There is only one 1-up item you can pick up in this game and that is on stage 3. After defeating the mid-boss of the stage, the screen will start scrolling upwards. After like 30 seconds, you'll see a big machine rise out of the floor. iIt will volley out lots of bullets and will have 4 spinning laser which rotate. Simply kill this without bombing; you can not manually bomb or let an auto-bomb hit it or it will void the achievement. After killing it, a 1-up will spawn on it's ruins.


TYPE-A - 20
Clear the game using the Type-A ship.

(Can be done in NOVICE mode)


Simply complete the game with the TYPE-A ship. It only requires you to complete the first loop. You can continue as many times as you want.

Clear the game using the Type-B ship.

(Can be done in NOVICE mode)


Simply complete the game with the TYPE-B ship. It only requires you to complete the first loop. You can continue as many times as you want.



TYPE-C - 20
Clear the game using the Type-C ship.

(Can be done in NOVICE mode)


Simply complete the game with the TYPE-C ship. It only requires you to complete the first loop. You can continue as many times as you want.



Bee Completion - 25
Collect all the bee items in a stage.

(Can be done in NOVICE mode)


Simply collect all BEES in a level, there are normally 7 BEES per level, but if you're on the secret route there will be 9. I suggest playing on NOVICE and simply collecting all 7 BEES in the first level to unlock the achievement. In NOVICE mode you do not have to uncover the BEES so it's fairly straight forward, all you have to do is move over them to pick them up.


Taking a Detour - 15
Enter the secret route. (Arrange A)

This achievement is exactly the same as the above "Taking a Detour" but this one requires that you do it in ARRANGE A. Simply select ARRANGE A and meet all requirements to enter the hidden route.

See "Taking a Detour" (the other achievement with the same name) for more details.

White Bee Hive - 20
Collect all bee items in a stage while they are white. (Arrange A)

*Can NOT die*


For this achievement, you must collect all BEES whilst they are flashing. This only happens for like half a second and they flash at 3-4 second intervals. This can be done on any stage but Stage 1 is the easiest. In ARRANGE A mode, BEES need to be uncovered with your laser () but the good thing is that you can see the BEES faded out. Simply locate a BEE item, hover above it and use your laser to immediately collect the BEE. Rinse and repeat for the other 6 in the level.

Full Power! - 20
Activate your hyper with 5 hyper items in stock. (Arrange A)

See "Charged Up" for more details.


Charged Up - 20
Collect 5 hyper items and fill the Hyper Meter to MAX. (Arrange A)

Normally when you play "XBOX360" OR "NOVICE" mode you can hyper as soon as you fill up your hyper bar, but for ARRANGE A, once you fill up your hyper bar to the max; it automatically sets back to 0 and a HYPER item drifts from the top of the screen. Once you collect the HYPER item it will be added to your "stock" and it will float behind you. If you decide to use your hyper () it will remove all of your HYPER Items from your stock and your ship will preform a Hyper. The more HYPER items used for a hyper determines it's strength. If you die whilst having HYPER items in stock; they will float around the screen and you can pick them up upon re-spawning.

What this achievement wants you to do is to collect and have 5 Hyper stocks at one time and then fill up the hyper bar again. Once it fills up to the max you will then unlock "Charged up". If you then proceed to use your hyper you will then unlock "Full Power".

Extreme Generator - 20
Charge up 5 hyper stocks during one hyper activation. (Arrange A)

In ARRANGE A mode, when you use your hyper, you can still charge up the hyper bar by killing enemies. What the achievement wants you to do is use 1 hyper and fill up 5 bars of hyper. To do this, accumulate 5 HYPER items and wait for a crowded section with lots of enemies. Activate your hyper and kill the enemies until 5 hyper bars fill up. The hyper lasts for quite a bit so it shouldn't be any trouble getting this.

Locations you can attempt this:
Stage 2, after the mid-boss
Stage 3, before the mid-boss as you start scrolling down.
Stage 4, before you start your decent into the bunker/cave
Stage 5, at the battery cells.


10,000 Hits! - 15
Connect a 10,000 HIT combo. (Arrange A)

See "100,000 Hits!" for more details.




100,000 Hits! - 35
Connect a 100,000 HIT combo. (Arrange A)

I would like to thank deexor for his video and his walkthrough below, this is him playing and NOT me.

What to do:
  • Collect 5 hypers.
  • Use the 5-hyper in a good spot to shoot a large mass of bullets in hyper-normal with your shot (not laser) to raise the hit counter.
  • After the hyper, collect as many hypers as possible; repeat in a good spot.

This is possible on stages 3, 4 and 5 (first loop); probably any stage in the second loop, but harder.

How to do it on stage 4 (easiest, in my opinion) - see video:
  1. Collect 5 hypers on stage 3
  2. Use the hyper when the first large enemy enters the screen
  3. This should get you a combo of around 70,000
  4. Collect more hyper items
  5. Hyper when you get to the part when you start descending into the cave.
  6. Do not get hit by spinning laser towers! death = sad times
  7. Keep hypering as needed / as possible; keep doing it at the boss if needed

Probably easier when taking the secret / ura route, as it is a little longer.



Non-infinite Loop - 30
Clear the first loop. (Arrange A)

*Continues are allowed*


Simply complete ARRANGE A mode. You can die and continue all you want. All you have to do is complete all of the stages.



Hyper*Hyper - 10
Use a ton of hypers during Stage 1. (Arrange B)

*Can NOT die*


Simply hyper 10 times on stage 1. To Hyper in ARRANGE B. you must hold down the button, Make sure you collect BEES when they are green or flashing to increase your Hyper bar faster. You can also point blank enemies with your laser () to increase your hyper meter faster. Always use your hyper when you fill up a bar. It is possible to charge up 2 hypers or more on the stage 1 boss.



This One's Free! - 5
Used a Free Bomb. (Arrange B)

To use a free bomb, you must first use a Hyper and then proceed to max your Hyper gauges. If you do this whilst still in the Hyper; you can press and bomb. This bomb is a "free" bomb as it does not cost you a hyper gauge. The best way to do this is by using the Hyper custom on stage 5. Make sure both of your Hyper gauges are full then proceed to use your Hyper as the first set of enemies come on-screen. As you are briefly invincible when you activate your hyper; you shouldn't get killed immediately, and that way you can point-blank the enemies with your laser. If it's done correctly; you will fill up your hyper bar and start glowing blue when it maxes out. Simply press B and you'll bomb (Free Bomb) and the achievement will unlock. You have to bomb during the Hyper and not after it finishes.

UwaAaaAAaAa - 10
Cancel a ton of enemy bullets after activating hyper. (Arrange B)

I would like to thank deexor for the solution below.

The description on the achievement is a bit misleading. What you're supposed to do is pick hyper custom and ram a high number of bullets with your ship during the invincibility you get from activating hyper with the hyper custom.

Try to get this on your highest-ranked stage to make it easier.


God-like Existence - 10
Increase the Expert Gauge to MAX. (Arrange B)

See "Iron plate Love" for more details.

Iron Plate Love - 20
Collect 10,000 "Expert Items" on Stage 3. (Arrange B)

I would like to thank A47A47 for the image and information below

*You can die whilst going for the achievement*

Before you attempt this achievement you must know how ARRANGE B mode works and what you have to do for the achievement. What I suggest is to use the image below along with the Key to understand the HUD and how to collect Expert-items:

  • Collecting expert-items (hexagon iron plates) raises expert-gauges ((5) blue gauges).
  • Expert-items appears when your hyper-shots offset pink-bullets.
  • Expert-items appears when you destroy enemies while destroy-gauges ((4) yellow/red gauges) attains red level.
  • Destroying enemies raises destroy-gauges.
  • Hitting laser against enemies raises destroy-gauges.
  • Using hyper or bomb gathers all expert-items in your display.
  • The way to collect many expert-items is to increase grobal-density-rank ((2) blue-number: grobal-speed-rank, red-number: grobal-density-rank) and offset hyper-shots against pink-bullets.


To get this achievement you need to gain a high global-density-rank, because as global-density-rank increases so does the number of bullets shot out by an enemy thus you can get more Expert items when you cancel bullets with your hyper.

To get a high global-density-rank simply kill enemies with your Laser () and it will slowly increase. if you die whilst using your laser your global-density-rank will decrease so to avoid this don't laser when you're about to die that way your global-speed-rank will decrease instead. Simply repeat stage 3 until your global-density-rank gets to around 1250 that way enemies will shoot out lots of bullets therefore you can cancel more pink bullets to receive more expert items.

Once you've achieved a global-density-rank of 1250 or more you will need to reset your score for stage 3 (Done in the options). The reason for this is that in this mode when you obtain a high score whilst playing the background automatically turns green, and when it turns green enemies shoot out more bullets. If enemies do not seem to be shooting out as much bullets as normal you should laser () for half a second and this makes enemies shoot out even more bullets. Continuously cancel pink bullets with your hyper whenever you get the chance.

With all of these conditions you should be able to hit 10,000 expert items on stage 3. As you work for this achievement you will unlock "God-like existence" and collecting any BEE whilst it's flashing and whilst your in a hyper will unlock you "Descent to hell".




Automatic Transmission - 5
Trigger 3 auto-bombs during play. (Arrange B)

An auto-bomb occurs when you get hit whilst having both hyper gauges maxed out. The cost for the auto-bomb is 1 hyper bar. Simply choose any stage and get hit 3 times whilst having both hyper gauges maxed out. Remember when you start the any stage both gauges are already full.


Thank You For Playing - 30
Score more than 50 million points across all stages. (Arrange B)

Simply get 50 million points across all stages. This sounds hard at first but is simply done by raising the global-density-rank of each stage. As global-density-rank increases so does the number of points given out when you kill the enemies. To gain points you can collect Expert items or kill enemies and you lose points when you die, the amount you lose is in proportion to the amount you have, so for example, if you had 100 points you will lose approximately 20 points upon dying but if you had 20 million points you'll lose approximately 200,000 points per death.

My point scores for the stages and global-density-rank per stage for reference:

Stage 1: 4,137,101 (400)
Stage 2: 2,244,292 (145)
Stage 3: 23,345,392 (1130)
Stage 4: 4,085,312 (375)
Stage 5: 17,554,537 (1734)
Total: 51,366,634

Therefore i suggest using stage 3 for gaining the max amount of points and then following it up with stage 5, stage 2 is very short and doesn't provide you with much points unless you increase your global-density-rank a lot.

Secret Achievements



7x Bonus! - 50
Connected a 10,000 HIT combo.

(XBOX 360 MODE)
(POWER style: boost mode)


Connect a 10,000 hit combo. This can be done easily on stage 2's mid-boss. Choose POWER style and get to the stage 2 mid-boss, dodge his first set of bullets, and then hyper shortly after that to cancel the bullets, but refrain from shooting the boss as he needs to survive. When he gets to the end of the track, he will shoot out balls of lasers. Simply sandwich yourself between 2 balls of lasers and point blank them with your laser () (whilst you are still in a hyper). You can get around 2,000-12,000 hits. If you get 7,000 or more hits carry on with the combo till the end boss and milk enemies for hits.

As this getting 10,000 hits on the stage 2 mid-boss is unreliable you can practice in training mode by placing yourself at the stage 2 mid-boss and working out an efficient way to point-blank the laser balls. Once you get an efficient method work your way back to XBOX360 mode and repeat it there. You can do this anywhere else in the game but maintaining a combo is very hard in XBOX360 mode.


KABOOM!!!! - 5
Survived the mother ship's destruction by an abominable force.

See "POWER style victory" for more details.


By no means. - 10
Select "NO" at the end of the first loop.

(XBOX360 MODE)
*continues NOT allowed*


Fulfill the requirements for the open second loop using any ship and type of your choice and when given the option to enter it, select "NO." I suggest using Strong style as it is the easiest style.


BOMB Style Victory - 30

POWER Style Victory - 30
[B]Clear the game using Power Style.

(XBOX360 MODE)


To obtain these achievements you must complete the game with the respective ship style. The achievement description does not mention that you need to complete any second loop (open or hidden) with the style but you have to do that in order for the achievement to unlock. Once all conditions for the Open loop are met on the first loop you'll enter the open second loop where you can continue freely. Upon completing stage 5 for a second time you will unlock "KABOOM!!!!" and after kill the hidden boss and you'll obtain the respective style type achievement during the credits.

Power style has no bomb stock and therefore is the hardest style to complete. I suggest learning enemy placements and bullet patterns which will make it much easier.
Also remember you can obtain a 1-UP in Stage 3 and 1-UP's for achieving 1 Billion and 10 Billion points.

Entering the OPEN loop is easier so aim for that.


STRONG Style Victory -30
Clear the game using Strong Style.

See "POWER style victory" for more details.


Slow and Steady Wins the Race - 25
Entered the secret route after Stage 3.

(XBOX360 MODE)


To enter the secret route on stage 3, you must not enter the secret route on stage 1 and collect all BEES on stage 1 and 2. If all requirements are met, you'll enter the secret route just before the mid-boss of stage 3.


Quitting my Bomb Addiction - 50
Clear the game without picking up a Bomb Item.

(XBOX360 MODE)
*Continues NOT allowed*


Complete the game without picking up any BOMBS. When it says complete the game it means that you have to complete either of the 2nd loops (open or hidden). Fulfill the requirements for the OPEN second loop as it is easier to enter and do not pick up bombs in either loops. The achievement unlocks during the credits after the second loop. Once you enter the second loop remember you can continue freely. Also remember there are additional 1-UP's on stage 3 and at 1 billion and 10 billion points.

I suggest using the TYPE-C ship and Strong-style for this achievement.


The One that Got Away... - 10

(ARRANGE A only)

When you fill your Hyper gauge, a HYPER item will float down from the top of the screen. Simply do not collect it and after 20 seconds; it will drift off-screen and the achievement will unlock.


Humanity's Triumph - 50
Destroyed ]-[|/34<#!.

(ARRANGE A only)
*Continues NOT allowed*


I would like to thank deexor for the video and walkthrough below, this is him playing and NOT me.

Hibachi only appears by entering the hidden loop. To enter the hidden loop, you must:

  • Clear all stages without continuing,
  • Collect all 45 bees,
  • Die at most once
  • Bomb at most twice
Hibachi will then appear after the first EX stage boss, Golden Disaster.

Once you're in the second loop, dying / bombing / continues are allowed.

Practice is the key to getting this. Especially stage 5, as its bosses and spinning laser rings can give you a hard time if you're unprepared.

My replay is on the European version leaderboards, if you want to see an example; the video below is my run on the Japanese version of the game. I messed up a little on the stage 5 boss, but succeeded in the end.

What you might want to pick up for this "survival style" is continuous hypering on later stages: keeping laser and autofire buttons down, use hyper-normal-laser almost all the time to get the hyper meter back up - this is always a priority. When cornered by bullets, tap switch twice to cancel the bullets. Use hyper-boost-laser and hyper-boost-shot only in specific areas.

It's a little cheap, and ignores proper scoring, but gets the job done...



Too Close for Comfort - 10
While using Bomb Custom style, bombed when a bullet was 1 pixel away. (Free Bombs not counted)

(ARRANGE B only)


Simply select bomb style and bomb () when a bullet is next to you. Choose a stage with lots of bullets such as stage 3, and when you see bullets about to hit you, bomb. If it was 1 pixel away, you'll unlock the achievement. This achievement is about trial and error. If you fail your first 2 bombs; then simply quit to menu and re-select the level.



Lonnnnnng Range - 15
Stayed at bottom of the screen using Laser Custom. (Bottom 1/3 of the screen for 70% of a stage)

(ARRANGE B only)


Simply select the laser custom and stay at the bottom of the screen lasering the enemies. The achievement will unlock after you complete the level.


Descent to Hell - 20
Picked up a bee item while it was flashing on a stage with an average enemy rank of more than 50.

See "Iron plate love" for more details.
