Introduction:
Time Pilot is a flying shoot ‘em up arcade game released by Konami in 1982. This Xbox Live Arcade version was released in August 2006.

The object of the game is to shoot down enemy aircraft while avoiding their projectiles. Once you’ve eliminated 56 aircraft, a larger aircraft will appear which you need to destroy to advance to the next stage.

Walkthrough:
11 of the 12 achievements are relatively simple with a little practice, some easier than others. Complete all five stages, shoot down missiles and bombs, rescue parachuters and destroy enemy bombers and formations make up the bulk of these achievements. The final achievement, “Perfection”, requires you to make it to the fifth stage (2001) without losing a life. This task can be quite daunting, but with practice and some luck, it can be accomplished in time.

Since there is no stage selection, if you miss out on any achievements you need to replay the entire game. If you complete the 2001 stage, each full game takes only about 6 or 7 minutes. The difficulty does get harder with each stage.

As far as a walkthrough, for every stage, you just need to use or the D-Pad to rotate while constantly pressing to shoot down the enemy aircraft until the “boss” appears. Progress through the game to unlock all five stage-based achievements.

Next, there are three stage-specific achievements:

  • You need to destroy 10 bombs on the 1910 stage (to unlock “Missile Attack 1”).
  • You need to shoot down four bombers on the 1940 stage (to unlock “Bomber Hunter”).
  • You need to shoot down 20 missiles on the 1970 stage (to unlock “Missile Attack 2”).

Then, there are two achievements that can be accomplished on any stage as long as you don’t lose all of your lives before unlocking them. They are “Formation Buster” and “Rescue Mission”.

The final two achievements are for reaching a certain stage without losing a life. “Smooth Operator” requires you to complete the 1910 stage without dying and for “Perfection” you need to reach the 2001 stage without dying.

Mop-Up:
As previously mentioned, if you miss any achievements, you need to restart the game from the beginning. The majority of them can be unlocked during your first playthrough if you pay attention, but even if you miss any, the game is short enough so replaying takes no time at all.

The one achievement that will probably take many playthroughs is “Perfection”. That is the reason for the higher difficulty score and extended time to 100% this game.

Conclusion:
Congratulations on another 200! I hope you found this guide helpful on your quest to earn more gamerscore.

Missile Attack 215
Shoot down 20 homing missiles in 1970. 

During 1970, helicopters will periodically fire homing missiles at you. To unlock this achievement, you need to avoid and destroy 20 of them. If they are closing in on you, as they approach, quickly turn away and circle back to shoot them as they are slower than you. There is no meter to track how many you’ve destroyed. Just shoot down as many as possible, and once you reach 20, the achievement will unlock.

You can lose lives and still obtain this achievement as long as you shoot down 20 missiles before the stage ends. Try to accomplish this before the CH-47 “boss” appears as it shoots in all directions making this a little more difficult. Basically, just try to avoid shooting the too many helicopters until this achievement unlocks.

Reach 197015
Complete 1940, making it through to 1970. 

For this achievement, you need to complete the second stage. This stage has you against single seat planes that shoot bullets and fire rockets. There is a meter along the bottom of the screen to track your progress on how many enemies you’ve killed, which reduces as you shoot them down. Once you’ve killed 56 enemy planes, a B-25 Bomber plane will appear. Destroy it (it takes 7 hits) to unlock this achievement.

You can lose lives and still obtain this achievement as long as you complete the stage.

Smooth Operator15
Reach 1940 without losing a life. 

All you need to do for this achievement is survive 1910 without losing a life. Naturally, just shoot everything and avoid the bullets, bombs and other aircraft until the blimp appears. Destroy it without being destroyed yourself and you will unlock this achievement.

Missile Attack 110
Shoot down 10 bombs in 1910. 

In 1910, about halfway through the stage, the bi-planes begin to drop bombs. As you’re flying around, if you see one drop a bomb, quickly turn towards it and try to shoot it. There is no meter to track how many you’ve destroyed. Just shoot down as many as possible, and once you reach 10, the achievement will unlock.

You can lose lives and still obtain this achievement as long as you shoot down 10 bombs before the stage ends. Try to accomplish this before the blimp “boss” appears as it shoots in all directions making this a little more difficult. Basically, just try to avoid shooting the too many bi-planes until this achievement unlocks.

Formation Buster10
Shoot down all the planes from a single formation 3 times in one game. 

This is easiest to unlock in 1910. As you’re flying around, at some point you will hear a quick piercing sound alerting you that there is a formation about to appear. There are usually 3-5 aircraft per formation. For this achievement, you need to destroy all the aircraft in the formation three times in one game. You will know when you’ve destroyed them all when a 2000 point bonus pops up on the screen.

You can lose lives and still obtain this achievement.

Rescue Mission15
Rescue 10 parachuters in one game. 

Parachuters appear in every stage except 2001, but this is easiest to unlock in 1910. As you’re flying around, you will see parachuters floating in the sky. For this achievement, you need to rescue 10 parachuters in one game by flying over them. There is no meter to track this in the game, so just keep rescuing them until the achievement unlocks.

You can lose lives and still obtain this achievement. Try to accomplish this before the blimp “boss” appears as it shoots in all directions making this a little more difficult.

Bomber Hunter15
Shoot down 4 bomber planes in 1940. 

During 1940, periodically a bomber will appear and fly across the screen. For this achievement, you need to shoot down four bombers during this stage. Each is worth 1500 points. Be careful as they do shoot at you.

You can lose lives and still obtain this achievement as long as you shoot down four bombers before the stage ends. You need to accomplish this before the B-25 “boss” appears as they do not show up anymore after that.

Reach 194015
Complete 1910, making it through to 1940. 

For this achievement, you need to complete the first stage. This stage has you against bi-planes that shoot bullets and drop bombs (which you can shoot down to unlock “Missile Attack 1”). There is a meter along the bottom of the screen to track your progress on how many enemies you’ve killed, which reduces as you shoot them down. Once you’ve killed 56 enemy bi-planes, a blimp will appear. Destroy it (it takes 7 hits) to unlock this achievement.

You can lose lives and still obtain this achievement as long as you complete the stage.

Reach 198220
Complete 1970, making it through to 1982. 

For this achievement, you need to complete the third stage. This stage has you against helicopters that shoot bullets and fire homing missiles (which you can shoot down to unlock “Missile Attack 2”). There is a meter along the bottom of the screen to track your progress on how many enemies you’ve killed, which reduces as you shoot them down. Once you’ve killed 56 enemy helicopters, a CH-47 helicopter will appear. Destroy it (it takes 7 hits) to unlock this achievement.

You can lose lives and still obtain this achievement as long as you complete the stage.

Reach 200120
Complete 1982, making it through to 2001. 

For this achievement, you need to complete the fourth stage. This stage has you against jets that shoot bullets and fire homing missiles. There is a meter along the bottom of the screen to track your progress on how many enemies you’ve killed, which reduces as you shoot them down. Once you’ve killed 56 enemy jets, a B-52 Bomber plane will appear. Destroy it (it takes 7 hits) to unlock this achievement.

You can lose lives and still obtain this achievement as long as you complete the stage.

Complete 200130
Complete 2001. 

For this achievement, you need to complete the fifth stage. This stage has you against UFO aircraft that shoot balls of light and fire swirly missile-like projectiles. There is a meter along the bottom of the screen to track your progress on how many enemies you’ve killed, which reduces as you shoot them down. Once you’ve killed 56 enemy UFO’s, a big UFO Mothership will appear. Destroy it (it takes 7 hits) to unlock this achievement. Upon completion, you will warp back to 1910.

You can lose lives and still obtain this achievement as long as you complete the stage.

Perfection20
Reach 2001 without losing a life. (2) 

For this achievement, you need to reach 2001 (complete the fourth stage, 1982) without losing a life. With each stage, the difficulty increases, so this one will take some practice and a little bit of luck. Luckily, to get to this stage can take as little as 5 minutes, so while it might not take long, it can definitely be intimidating, frustrating and overwhelming.

The concept is simple; as you play each stage, just shoot everything and avoid the projectiles and other aircraft until the “boss” appears. Destroy it to continue on to the next stage, all without losing a life. Repeat this three more times. Please refer to the video below for more tips. Good luck!
