Introduction

Rocket Riot 3D is the twin-stick shooter and is the third rehash in the Rocket Riot series which has already landed on XBLA and Windows Phone. This is a unique version and is slightly different than both other versions, offering more levels and depth. You control a small rocket-wielding character in a fight against increasing numbers of enemies, dodging and tunneling through levels made up of thousands of tiny colored blocks. The game offers a small amount of level types, including deathmatch, rugby, and survival, among a few others. The addition of power-ups and power-downs keeps the game fresh throughout. It offers crisp mouse/keyboard controls and touch (for the tablets), as well as full Xbox 360 controller support. Currently the game is listed at $4.99 in the Windows 8 Store.

Step 1: Complete the campaign
Play through the campaign. You need to play all 48 levels of the regular campaign, the 24 levels of the Samuriot campaign, and maybe some of the Lost Levels campaign.

Step 2: Mop-up
Mop-up any miscellaneous achievements you may have left. See the individual achievement descriptions for the best strategies.

Step 3: Grind 5,000 kills and 1 million blocks
After gaining all other achievements, you will most likely need to grind blocks and kills for the final two achievements. You should just focus on getting 5,000 kills and the 1 million blocks achievement should come naturally.

Conclusion
Rocket Riot 3D is basically the same as the Windows Phone version, but includes more levels and has significantly more polish. Luckily it still shares the same easy achievement list. The 1 to 2 hour grind after completing the campaigns to reach 5000 kills is quite annoying, especially since it only takes around 2 hours to finish the campaign itself. However, following this guide you will have completed the game in less than five hours.

MACRO INFORMATION: If you have a non-RT version of Windows 8, you can download a macro recording program that will make the game slightly less time consuming to complete. Using a macro recorder, you can record you mouse movements and clicks. The recording can be looped indefinitely while you are away from you computer. This method is really only helpful for the repetitive grinding achievements. To find a decent program for free, just Google "Jbit Macro Recorder." I wont go into too much detail on how to use the programs. They are fairly self-explanatory. Just hit the record button, perform the task you want to do, hit stop, then hit play. The program will do all the tedious work for you while you are sleeping or go to school or work. Macros would really only be potentially helpful for 1 million blocks and 5,000 kills.

NOTE: The game supports the Xbox 360 controller completely, which makes the game much easier to complete, especially for us console gamers. The controller is even easier than touch. If you do not have a way to connect a controller, this game may be a tad more difficult for you.

GUIDE

Nice Beating You - 10
Finish the first set of levels by beating the first Pirate boss

This achievement is awarded for beating Blockbeard in Level 6 of the normal campaign. This fight is very simple. Just keep moving and attack him from a distance.

I'll Show You Fits of Rage - 15
Shoot 20 enemies in 60 seconds. All game modes are counted.

This will definitely come with natural progression through the campaign. The latter levels have 40+ enemies and you will have no trouble disposing of them in under 2 minutes.

Deathless Destruction - 15
Finish a destroy the object level without killing an enemy

A destroy the object level is one in which you have to destroy different types of objects to complete the level. Just use your rockets to demolish all the objects without hitting an enemy. Enemy friendly fire that results in other enemies dying is okay. This is ridiculously easy to do on Level 3 of the main campaign. NOTE: Level 3 has a few specific enemies that you will miss if you complete it without killing any enemies, which are required for the "The Things I've Seen" achievement. Make sure to replay it an kill some of the enemy types to unlock them.

You're Like Some Kind of Robot - 15
Shoot 50 enemies with a longshot.

This will definitely unlock while progressing through the campaign. To get a longshot, just shoot an enemy that is farther away. A notification pops up in the bottom middle of the screen when you get one. You will likely have more than 500 by the time you finish all other achievements.

On A Gamer's Diet - 20
Shoot 50 zombies, 50 robots, 50 pirates, and 50 soldiers, all levels are counted.

Kill 50 of each of these enemy types to unlock this achievement. Pirates are found in Levels 1-6, robots in Levels 13-18, zombies in Levels 19-24, and soldiers in Levels 37-42. All enemy types can be found in Level 48. Each of these enemy types can also be found throughout the Lost Levels campaign as well.

The Things I've Seen - 20
Shoot every type of enemy at least once, all levels are counted.

You need to kill all 197 unique enemies in the game to unlock this achievement. When you kill an enemy for the first time, "Unlocked" will pop up in red, meaning you can now use him as your own character. You can check which characters you are missing from the Main Menu under "Pick Character." You are missing any characters that appear as silhouettes. Use the video below to get an idea what your missing characters look like. The in-forum video gets cut-off on the sides a bit. Proceed to YouTube to see all the characters.

You need to play entirely through the normal campaign and the Samuriot campaign to encounter all the enemies to unlock them. Some of the characters are the developers and those can only be killed in the credits. You also may want to play through some of the Lost Levels campaign to find enemies that just don't want to spawn in the regular campaign. If you are having trouble finding a particular character, see/post-in THIS thread for help. Some tips:
  • Make sure to kill ample amount of enemies in levels that are not deathmatch. If you focus too much on completing the objectives, you will likely miss unlocking some of the enemies.
  • Many characters are only available on specific levels. Level 44 in particular has many characters that are only available on that level. Make sure to replay it a few times if you are missing characters
  • You can figure out what levels you need to replay by looking at the types of characters next to the silhouetted character you are missing.
  • At the beginning of deathmatch levels, a picture of each unique character that spawns in that level is shown.
  • From my experience and a few others folks, one particular robot only spawns in Level 12 of the Lost Levels.

One Shot, Thrice the Score - 25
Using the Triple Rocket power up, kill three enemies with one shot.

You need to first get a green Triple Rocket power-up, that looks like, you guessed it, three rockets side-by-side. You may or may not unlock this while completing the campaign. Whenever you get one such power-up, try and fly around and gather a bunch of enemies, then shoot into them, one shot at a time. This is not overly difficult, but if you are spamming it may never unlock for you.

A sure-fire method to earn this achievement is to load up Level 30. Shoot blocks around the outside of the level until you get a Triple Rocket power-up, making sure not to disturb the pink tanks in the middle that contain all the enemies. This may take several minutes as this power-up is rare to spawn. Once you get one, unload to break open a bunch of the pink tanks. Then, when there is a large cluster of enemies, shoot the triple rockets into them one shot at a time. Make sure you are quick enough to break the tanks so that the power-up doesn't expire before you get the achievement. You need to kill one enemy with each of the three rockets.

Two Thumb Master - 30
Defeat BlockBeard to finish the single player campaign.

BlockBeard is the final boss in the single player campaign and is found in Level 48. This is by far the hardest level in the game, but it really is not too bad. He is much easier in this version than the XBLA version. Some tips:
  • Constantly keep in motion and look around feverishly for green power-ups, as they make it significantly easier
  • Try not to get too close to BlockBeard as his lightning attack can be nasty
  • Make sure to shoot the red homing blocks he fires that constantly track you down.
  • Be patient. Longshots are your friend in this battle

A Wilhelm Scream - 5
Die while fighting BlockBeard on the final level

The description is self-explanatory. You will most likely die a few times before successfully defeating him anyways. If you didn't, just load up level 48 and die.

Been There, Shot That - 15
Use every power-up at least once

You need to collect and use each power-up at least once. You will most likely get this early in the game if you are constantly collecting power-ups, which you should be doing because it makes the game easier and quicker. Green power-ups are the best to pick up to boost your rockets. Blue and yellow power-ups are hit or miss, some offer defensive boosts or slight advantages, while others add nothing but cosmetic changes or annoying changes. Red power-ups are bad and should be avoided like the plague, after getting this achievement, of course! Every power-up needs to be used, even the bad ones!

Natural Born Gamer - 20
Shoot 5000 enemies in total, all levels are counted

This is the most time consuming achievement in the game. After completing the required campaigns, you will most likely still need to grind around 2500 kills. The fastest method I found for grinding is to keep replaying Level 16 of the Lost Levels. While this level only has 30 enemies they spawn very fast and can all be wiped out in about 30-40 seconds. As soon as the level begins, migrate to the top left corner (by the moon) and shoot all the enemies as they mob you. With this method, you can accumulate roughly 2000 to 2500 kills per hour.

You can check your progress towards 5000 kills upon completion of any level in the statistics screen.

One Meeellion Blocks - 10
Destroy a total of 1.000.000 blocks. All blocks you destroyed from all levels are counted.

This is another achievement you will likely need to grind after completing the required campaigns. This one should come naturally without trying too much along the way to grinding 5000 kills. It really helps your total to go crazy destroying the level with the Gigantic Rocket power-up any time your get one. These have huge explosive power and can obliterate the entire level's blocks in a few shots.

You can check your progress towards 1.000.000 blocks upon completion of any level in the statistics screen.
