This game has a simple concept. You are stationary and are shooting up at enemies. You just hold your finger(s) where you want to shoot. There is no difficulty to choose from. There is an upgrade system and you will upgrade as you play. There are 3 modes and in the main menu there is an achievement tracker which will show you your progress. The achievement for upgrading seems to glitch for some, as does arcade mode. The fix is to uninstall the game and try again from scratch. Luckily the game doesn't take long to fully upgrade everything. The easiest way to get upgrade points is Survival Mode. While playing the game, if you hold your finger near the bottom, it will form an X of bullets which will pretty much kill everything on screen. It's not fool proof and you may end up dying eventually. It will however, give you a huge advantage. Before starting the actual game, go ahead and go into Help & Options, choose Credits, and click on a few names that appear to get your first easy achievement.

Step 1: Arcade Mode

There is no need to actually finish or get very far in this mode. Your main goal is to get upgrade points and to try to reach specific waves with a certain percentage of accuracy. This is best done by buying the Battle Cry modification which makes everything 50% slower. Once you have obtained these, you will want to focus on getting to Wave 10 using only 1 finger. Do not put two on the screen for any reason. If you are having troubles, complete Step 2 instead, which does allow you to get your upgrade points faster. Then you can try Arcade again, fully upgraded.

Step 2: Survival Mode

There are no achievements associated with this at all. Though, you can obtain playing 10 Arcade Modes through this. Your main focus here is to gain upgrade points. Just hold your finger near the center bottom to create an X of bullets. Go until you die, and repeat until you are fully upgraded and have the Battle Cry Modification.

Step 3: Architect Mode

This is the worst of the modes, you must create your own base and actually need to plan things out. The worst part is if something dies, you have to rebuild it or build something else. The waves get increasingly difficult. The achievement associated with this is building 4 Laser Towers and shooting them all at once. The hard part is actually building them. You'll be in good shape if you can even get 2 created and still be surviving. This is a hard achievement if done without any modifications.


You should have obtained all of the "shoot total" and "block total" achievements. They are accumulative through all modes. Though by the end of all other achievements, you may need some more blocking with your shields. The game has mostly easy achievements and should be a somewhat satisfying completion.

Pew Pew20
Shoot a total of 10,000 light gun bullets. 

Light Guns shoot bullets. They shoot very fast and this will be one of the first achievements you get in the game. As you upgrade them, they will fire even more. You will get this in a game or two most likely

Blam Blam20
Shoot a total of 3,000 heavy gun shots. 

As you progress through arcade, you'll soon start seeing these Heavy Guns. They shoot what appears to be plasma shots. This will take a little bit longer, as you must get farther to earn them. You may also get them in Survival mode quickly. When you start this mode, you already have the weapons.

Zap Zap20
Shoot a total of 1,000 laser bolts. 

The Laser Towers will start appearing last. They shoot very slow unless upgraded to max. You should get this as you play through the later levels in arcade. You can also get these in Architect mode. You may also get them in Survival mode quickly. When you start this mode, you already have the weapons.

Impenetrable Defense20
Block over 1,500 enemies with shields. 

Shields form around the bases. After upgrading them and playing for the other achievements, you should start getting this a little bit faster as the alien ships crash into them. This will take multiple plays to accomplish. Each shield (when maxed) should be able to block up to 10 enemies.

Tip: If you still need this achievement, the easiest way to grind this out is to start Survival Mode and let yourself die. Repeat as needed, you should get 20+ blocks each attempt.

Stick It To 'Em5
Use a single finger to reach Wave 10 in Arcade mode. 

You might not have even known you could use two fingers to shoot in at two target points. Just keep keep one finger going until Wave 10. The achievement will unlock after you are die, not at the wave. You can continue or die on purpose.

Get to Wave 3 in Arcade mode with an accuracy above 25%. 

There is no way to actually tell what percentage your accuracy is at. You must beat the first 2 waves in arcade with higher than 25%. You can use a modification called "Battle Cry" after you buy it to help with this achievement. It slows everything down 50%. The trick is to let things hit your base and possibly even destroy one of your light guns in the first round. Try to only shoot when there are a lot of things on the screen at once. Once Wave 3 starts, don't shoot at all and let yourself die.

Get to Wave 5 in Arcade mode with an accuracy about 40%. 

This is like the Sharpshooter achievement except you'll need a higher percent and get to wave 5. You can stack this with Special Forces, which is the other accuracy achievement. I suggest going for Special Forces and you should be able to pick this up along the way. You will want to use the Battle Cry modification to slow everything down. This can be done with max upgrades. Just be selective on how you shoot. You will have the chance to shoot a box that moves slowly on the screen. The more you shoot it, the more your percentage will go up. You can also do this with a boss. Make sure you focus all guns on them. If they move, make sure to move with them so you don't start missing.

Special Forces15
Get to Wave 8 in Arcade mode with an accuracy above 50%. (3) 

This will be a tough achievement for some people. Like the other accuracy achievements, you must maintain it until the specified wave. In this case, it's Wave 8. Shoot only when needed or when you have a easy shot. Make sure when a bonus box is floating above, to put all fire onto it when you can. The boss also helps on wave 5. Once you reach Wave 8, die. If you didn't get any achievements, you will have to try again. Use the Battle Cry modification to make things easier.

Don't Cross the Streams25
Build 4 lasers in Architect mode and fire them all at once. (2) 

You must build your own base and progress through various waves. You can build/upgrade what you want, but nothing respawns if you lose them. Building more Cities gives you a faster cash flow, but then you have less defenses. The only way to be successful is to have a good amount of bases and upgraded Light Guns. Keep everything close together to be shielded. This will take many successful wave defenses to gain enough "extra money" to get the lasers. You must build 4 Laser Towers which costs a total of 1200. After building them you just have to fire on the screen so that they all shoot at once. Below is the suggested method to gain the achievement easily.

Modifications needed: Battle Cry and Lazy Mode

Stage 1: 1 Light Gun and 1 Laser Tower put next to the City.
Stage 2: 1 Light Gun and 1 Laser Tower (opposite sides of stage 1)
Stage 3: Do nothing
Stage 4: Build last 2 Laser Towers.

Now after all your lasers shoot, let yourself die and gain the achievement.


Thanks to Mieces87 for Lazy mod tip

Welcome to the Club15
Played 10 Arcade games. (1) 

As the achievement states, except it also counts the other modes as well. You will get this along the way attempting the rest of the achievements. It's okay if you die. Some people have been reporting to play more than 10, yet still not get the achievement. Try to exit the game after every play and continue to get all other achievements. If this is your last achievement, uninstall and reinstall the game and try again.

Maximum Awesome25
Fully upgrade everything. (1) 

This achievement is not unlocking for some players. The fix seems to be to uninstall the game, and start over from scratch again.

There are 5 different upgrades to max out. Light Guns, Heavy Guns, Laser Towers, Defensive Cities, and Overdrive. They cost 10, 50, 100, 200 upgrade points to max out. This means you will need a total of 1800 points to max out everything. The best way to earn credits is to get as far as you can in Arcade Mode. Upgrade the Light Guns first. The best way to play the game is when you have a lot of Light Guns, start the two points for firing and cross them in an X-form. When fully upgraded, you can literally just sit there and move through waves without even looking at the screen. This will help you get the credits for everything else faster.

Easy Method: Play Survival Mode. Put your finger down near the center bottom of the screen. It will be an X-shape of firepower which will protect you as well as kill pretty much everything that comes by. You will get upgrade points the fastest this way.

Perfectly Efficient15
Destroy 50 enemies at once with a single Overdrive blast. 

An Overdrive Blast is the super weapon you can use after scoring multiple kills. It goes down if you aren't shooting anything. Once it hits 100%, you just tap the bar on the top of the screen. Alternatively you can swipe 3 fingers upwards to activate it. A blast goes from bottom to top killing everything in it's way (except bosses). You will likely just get this playing along. The farther you get in waves, the higher chance you will get to killing 50 in a single shot. The achievement unlocks after the game ends.

Point out your heroes! (4) 

When you start the game, go to Help & Options. Pick Credits, and as the credits roll, click on the a name or two and the achievement will unlock.
