Flight Commander

Finish Solo game on Hard    

Again, this achievement is not difficulty-stackable. You can not beat this game on Hard to get "Combat Pilot." You will only get "Flight Commander" after beating Mission 9 in Solo Mode on Hard.

General Tips for survival:
  • Your journey will consist of 9 missions, regardless of which areas you progress throughout the game.
  • Ship choice is a matter of preference. Each ship has the same health system.
  • You can shoot every weapon all at once. Rapidly tapping (Chaingun) while holding or pressing (Cluster Missiles) helps with killing many ships, while pressing (Torpedoes) will home in on an enemy and create a small splash radius. This tactic can stress your thumb out (if you only use your thumb) so be careful.
  • Note that you can only have one particular upgrade at a time. For example, if you pick up Chaingun upgrade Lvl. 1 and then pick up Cluster Missile upgrade Lvl. 1, your Chaingun will revert back to it's normal state.
  • Your primary upgrade should be the Chaingun (Yellow Orbs). This is the weapon you shoot the most and is very effective in managing small ships with ease.
  • Use Temporal Shift if you have trouble navigating the asteroid & ice rock fields. This will save you a lot of stress and health.
  • Resist rapid Barrel Rolling. Sometimes you'll make dodging fire worse by dodging into enemy fire. When you barrel-roll, if you do not move, you revert back to your original location where you performed the move.
  • The jump of difficulty from Normal to Hard is not too much. More shots are fired and less damage is absorbed. Besides that, the strategies remain the same. There are no "surprise enemies" added in higher difficulties.
