Introduction

This game should be played on easy and you should save often when you are high in health. Since it's a Sega game, you can save whenever you want and exiting to load the game you saved is quick. You can do melee attacks but they are useless when you have a certain combination of weapons. This combination is that of the leaf and lightning icon pickups. All you do is hold and it will track and kill enemies and bosses very quickly. To grab a pickup, you must hold down and press over it. Once you have both weapon types, if not already on the blue laser that follows enemies, press to cycle to it.

Step 1: Beat the game

First, let's knock out an achievement for starting with each weapon time. Begin a game, pick a weapon, then once the first level loads go ahead and exit out. Do this with each weapon until you get the achievement. Afterwards, start a game for real and be sure to pick the green leaf icon one. Run through the level shooting until you find a lightning pickup. Once you have done this, make sure you're on the combination of both weapons (the tracking blue laser). Now you just run through killing everything, saving often to make sure you're in high health. You should be able to maintain 80+ all the time throughout most of the game. Your achievements will all come to you as you progress through the game. You will get the last 3 for beating the final few bosses at the end, so don't worry

*Important*

The level where you are on a mining cart has a specific boss that changes forms. At the end of this particular level, you will want to save on file 3 when the boss warning comes up. Now go ahead and beat his first 2 forms. The third sequence will have two possible forms. One is a floating gun and the other is a giant red crab (looking) form. If you get the gun form, reload and try again to get the crab form. See picture below:




Step 2: If you Missed Crab Attack...

If you didn't create a save and didn't get the crab looking boss on the mining level, it's no big deal. Just start a new game and pick the mining stage first (the second icon over). Make sure to pick the green leaf icon, and then pick up a lightning one like usual. Make it through and you can make a save beforehand and get the achievement. No need to replay anything else.

Conclusion

This is a very straightforward game. If you just save often while you're high in health, you should beat the whole game without dying and have all of the achievements in that one playthrough. Just make sure you always use the mentioned combination of weapons. It almost feels like a cheat of sorts because of how easy fast and easy you will blow through the game.

You shouldn't have to save often if you do it on easy. The game really is pretty simple apart form the last boss.

Other than that it's a pretty solid roadmap.
