Achievement Guide & Road Map



Roadmap.

Overview.

- Offline: 15/15 (200)
- Online: 0
- Approximate amount of time to 200 : 6+ Hours depending on skill
- Minimum number of playthroughs required: 1 of each game mode

- Glitched achievements: None

Introduction.

Welcome to my Achievement Guide & Road Map to achieving 200 on Orbital.

The game is currently priced at £2.29 = $2.99

Please enjoy the guide and I hope this helps you complete the game.

There is no copyright on this guide but if you do re-post elsewhere please credit me. =D

Special thanks to bitforge for creating this game, Xbox360Achievements for hosting this guide.

Pretty simple game, most achievements unlock without having to think too hard about them but I've listed the achievements in order that I unlocked them listing how I did them.

Aim of the game.

You shoot Orbs from a turret, you must hit the Orbs in the playing field a number of times to destroy them.

Orbs have hit points which are indicated by a number.

The size of the Orbs when they stop in the playing field depends on how close they are to edge of the screen and other orbs.

If your Orb stops in the middle of the screen or far away from other Orbs it will be large, if it stops on the edge of the screen or close to other Orbs it will be small.

Game Modes in single player and Local Multiplayer.

Supernova

You have full control of laser guided turret.
Orbs take 5 hits to destroy.
When an Orb is destroyed it blows up damaging nearby Orbs.
Score is based on destroying Orbs, the more Orbs you destroy from 1 shot gives a multiplier.

Gravity

The turret moves left to right.
Orbs take 3 hits to destroy.
Orbs in play have a gravity effect.
Score is based on destroying Orbs. 1 Orb = 1 point.

Pure

The turret moves left to right.
Orbs take 3 hits to destroy.
Score is based on destroying Orbs. 1 Orb = 1 point.

Game review

Nice simple little game, beautiful graphics and nice techno soundtrack, not a must buy but certainly worth £2.29 = $2.99. I rate the game 9/10.

Achievements.

Bring it on 5
Destroyed your first Orb

You should get this your 1st game – Hits an Orb until its has no more hit points to destroy it.

Unlocks on you 1st destroyed Orb.

I got the game 10
Destroyed 5 Orbs in one game

You should get this your 1st game – Hits an Orb until its has no more hit points to destroy it.

Unlocks on you 5th destroyed Orb in 1 game.

Burst into Space 15
Earned 200 points in one Supernova game

Play supernova and earn 200 points in one game, you earn points for destroying Orbs and receive more points by destroying multiple Orbs.

When an Orb is destroyed it will chain to Orbs that are close reducing them by hit point.

Unlocks when you reach 200 points.

Beam them up 20
Destroyed 50 Orbs in one Gravity game

Play Gravity and destroy 50 Orbs in one game, keep the Orbs as high up as possible and near the edges so they stay small.

The Orbs in the playing field have a gravity field which attracts fired Orbs, keep them in small clumps and keep destroying them.

Unlocks when you destroy 50 Orbs in one game.

Pure Fun 10
Destroyed 15 Orbs in one Pure game

Play Pure and destroy 15 Orbs in one game, the hardest of the game modes.

Keep the Orbs as high up as possible and near the edges so they stay small.

The bounce on the orbs is high so bounce the fired Orbs off the walls or other Orbs to take the momentum out of them.

Unlocks when you destroy 15 Orbs in one game.

Space is needed 10
Placed ten Orbs on the playing field

Pretty easy in gravity and you will probably unlock when going for Beam Them Up.

Keep the orbs as high up as possible and near the edges so they stay small.

The Orbs in the playing field have a gravity field which attracts fired Orbs, fire them close and they will clump together.

Once 10 Orbs are on the playing field it will unlock.

Aaand another one 20
Placed thirty Orbs on the playing field

Pretty easy in Gravity and you will probably unlock when going for Beam Them Up.

Keep the orbs as high up as possible and near the edges so they stay small.

The Orbs in the playing field have a gravity field which attracts fired Orbs, fire them close and they will clump together.

Once 30 Orbs are on the playing field it will unlock.

Double Bouncer 10
Accomplished ten Double Hits in one game

A double hit is when 2 Orbs are destroyed from 1 fired Orb.

Get 10 doubles in 1 game to unlock.

TIP 1 ~ Play supernova and group Orbs together (Keeping Orbs as small as possible), once you have a large group fire an Orb into the group and it will bounce around destroying multiple Orbs, also helps with explosions from destroyed Orbs making doubles easy.

TIP 2 ~ Play gravity and group Orbs together (Keeping Orbs as small as possible), once you have a large group fire an Orb into the group and it will bounce around destroying multiple Orbs.

Triple Bouncer 15
Accomplish ten Triple Hits in one game

A triple hit is when 3 Orbs are destroyed from 1 fired Orb.

Get 10 triples in 1 game to unlock.

TIP 1 ~ Play supernova and group Orbs together (Keeping Orbs as small as possible), once you have a large group fire an Orb into the group and it will bounce around destroying multiple Orbs, also helps with explosions from destroyed Orbs making triples easy.

TIP 2 ~ Play gravity and group Orbs together (Keeping Orbs as small as possible), once you have a large group fire an Orb into the group and it will bounce around destroying multiple Orbs.

A Friend of mine 10
Played a Multiplayer game with a friend

This is local multiplayer not online, simply complete one game to unlock.

BFF's 15
Finished 10 local Multiplayer games

This is local multiplayer not online, simply complete ten games to unlock.

If playing by yourself set to 1 round to win and kill yourself to make this go quickly.

The game got me 15
Finished 25 games

Simply play 25 games to unlock.

Addict 30
Finished 100 games

Simply play 100 games to unlock.

Near Death Experience 5
Received "That was close" in one game

"That was close" is when a fired Orb stops close to the death line at the bottom of the screen above your turret.

You will probably get this with bad shot during play or see set-up for Survivor.

Survivor 10
Receive "That was close" three times in one game

"That was close" is when a fired Orb stops close to the death line at the bottom of the screen above your turret.

Get 3 "that was close" in one game to unlock.

TIP ~ Playing supernova game mode is an easy way to unlock.

Step 1 - Aim your laser into the top left hand corner and move it slightly right about 1/3rd of the way of your gamer picture and fire.

Step 2 - Now aim your laser directly underneath the Orb you just fired and fire again, if done correctly this will give you your 1st "that was close".

Do the same (Mirror step 1 & 2) on the right hand side for your second "that was close".

The third "that was close" is a little more tricky, you can fire another Orb off your 4 hit point Orbs but if that is not working you need to clear some space and set-up step 1 and 2 again.

This will take a lot of replays but once you get the feel for getting the Orb for step 1 in the correct position you should not have any problems.

You can most definitely unlock triple bouncer in supernova mode. I unlocked it shortly after getting 200 points

Superlate response, but this unlocked for me after I got a 7X shot in Supernova so I'd say greater than 3 counts.

just registered to say thanks to YIP YOO for the Survivor guide. I'm switching to an android phone from WP7 soon and wanted to finish getting the last few achievements needed.

Guide was simple and I got it on my second attempt, even gaining a fourth 'that was close' in the process.

Cheers
