There are 12 achievements with a total of 200 points.
Bombs - Press to use bombs. Bombs are very helpful but not recommended when going for some achievements. They should be mainly used when your in a heap of trouble, closed in with projectiles and nowhere to go. They can save your life on occasions and defeat bosses(some) rather quickly. You are also permitted to change your bomb stock to 5 in the 'Help & Options' menu with no penalty against you, achievements will still unlock.
Lives - Lives are the little hearts you see in the upper left corner. If you die with no hearts left then you will be asked to continue. For some achievements you can not lose these or you will have to start over. Here's a good tip go to 'Settings' under the 'Help & Options' menu and change "Player stock" to 4 and "Extend type" to every 25,000,000pts that way you can earn more lives while you play at a faster rate than usual. This can be very helpful when going for the Hard Clear achievement.
Anchoring - Press and hold button to shoot out your anchor on a flying enemy. Once grappled you will begin to rotate your enemy around you. At the precise time release them and hurl them at other groups of enemies for big scores. Tanks and Bosses cannot be anchored, you will instead Lock-On to them when pressing and holding . This works well for more precise aiming and kills. Just remember anchoring is key to getting these achievements.
Score Items - These are those yellow medals you see pop out of enemies when you defeat them. Your Total Point amount is displayed in blue letters right below your lives (hearts). To gather more medals when they are on screen hold down the shoot button to make them grow bigger then let go when they are about to go off screen for extra points. You gain more points by defeating enemies and even more if you using the anchor. Total Points also affect a number of factors:
Pause Trick - In case you have not heard of this method yet I call it the Pause Trick. A very simple method where you pause the game at points during the game (usually Boss fights) and try and dodge/graze projectiles. Try pausing when you have many bullets on screen and look for openings, be sure to Lock-On to a boss and shoot at the same time by holding + while doing so or else you will just be dodging and not lowering the boss' health gauge. While Locking On you will see a very small spinning green triangle on your Triggerheart, that is your hit box keep it away from bullets at all costs.This trick will help you get through the game pretty easily, just make sure you pause, look at the layout of bullets, look for open paths, plan your next move, and keep shooting and locking on and if you ever get cornered (which should rarely happen) use a bomb. This method will help you get the "Perfect Play" achievement much easier.

|Exelica Normal Ending||10|
|Complete the game playing as Exelica (Normal Ending).|
Simply Complete the game as Exelica. There are 5 stages in total in Story Mode and should only take 10-15 minutes to complete.Don't worry about score, hidden bosses, or lives for now just finish the game and get a feel for it. If you want, you can also try to nab the "No Bomb" achievement here. Simply avoid pressing and play through the game to the end. If you also do that on your first run, you will unlock two achievements during the Credits instead of one.
|Crueltear Normal Ending||10|
|Complete the game playing as Crueltear (Normal Ending).|
Complete the game as Crueltear.For more info see "Exelica Normal Ending" above.
|Exelica True Ending||20|
|Complete the game playing as Exelica (True Ending).|
In order to get a True Ending you must defeat the hidden boss Faintear on Stage 1 and 3 and you must NOT DIE because this will reduce your Total Points and you need a certain amount of those to trigger the fight.You must also go on to complete the entire game, once you get to Stage 5 you will get a slightly different end scene and face a different boss than usual. So while going for this achievement you will also get 2 other achievements(Destroy Faintear 1 and 2).
|Crueltear True Ending||20|
|Complete the game playing as Crueltear (True Ending).|
Same requirements as above only you must do it while playing as Crueltear.See above for more info. This should be fairly easy to get, especially on EASY difficulty.Be sure to set Live Stock to 4 and Bomb stock to 5 to decrease your chances of dieing.If you do just make sure you don't lose all of your lives. If your are asked to continue then you have failed and you need to start over. See "Destroy Fainter(Level 1)" and "Destroy Faintear(Level 3)" on how to trigger her fights
|Complete the game with a score of 50,000,000 points.|
This should be pretty easy to get, especially on EASY difficulty.Be sure to set Live stock to 4 and Bomb stock to 5 to decrease your chances of dieing.If you die just make sure you don't lose all of your lives. If your are asked to continue then your score will go back to 0 and you will have to start over.To earn 50,000,000 points be sure to anchor all flying enemies and destroy grounded enemies with flying enemies.Try holding on to a ship and launching it at groups of enemies for better bonuses. Also be sure to try and face Faintear on Stages 1 and 3 for some extra points. You can also use the Debirs Trick on Faintear at Stage 5 to net you extra points which is listed below.Once you accumulate 50,000,000 points or more this achievement will unlock after the Credits.
|Complete the game with a score of 100,000,000 points.|
Similar to the achievement above except you will have to put some more work in.Once again you cannot use a continue and I strongly suggest you defeat Faintear on Stage 1 and 3 for extra points.I was able to rank up 30,000,000 points on Stage 1 by anchoring a lot and beating Faintear. And you can get up to 30,000,000 on the Stage 5 Boss fight alone if you use the 'debris trick' I mentioned above. That's 60,000,000 points from Stage 1 and 5 alone! And with stages 2-4 I'm sure you can get 40,000,000 points out of 3 stages especially if you defeat Faintear on stage 3.Personally I got this without defeating Faintear on Stage 3 but I recommend it. Just make sure you are always anchoring.By games end if you have 100,000,000 points or more this will unlock after the credits.
|Destroy Faintear (Level 1)||15|
|Destroy Faintear in the first level.|
For Stage 1 make sure you have a Total Point score of 2300 or more by the time you get to the EMERGENCY prompt. Make sure you anchor everything you see with button. Learn to aim and wait until there is a multitude of enemies on screen to launch it.Right before the Emergency Prompt you will see two big choppers one of which gives you a bomb.Anchor the one above that chopper and hold on to it until the boss comes.Once the boss fight starts launch the chopper at the boss and with precise aim it will take out the first form.
|Destroy Faintear (Level 3)||20|
|Destroy Faintear in the third level.|
For Level 3 have 2900 Total Points by the time you get to the EMERGENCY prompt. Just play the level like I said earlier, anchor everything you see and shoot at ground enemies or in this case enemies on a revolving ring.Towards the end of the stage you will face ships that will shoot LOTS of projectiles in a variety. Be sure to anchor and throw them at each other as they appear on screen or you will get overwhelmed. There are 6 in all be sure to anchor the 6th one and hold on to it for the boss fight.Once it starts launch it at the boss it will not kill it but will give you a head start in damage. From there simply finish the first form with gunfire or bombs but gunfire is recommended.
|No Miss Clear||15|
|Complete the entire game without losing a life.|
Go to options and increase your bomb stock to 5. Also change the difficulty to EASY. While playing through the game it should be generally easy not to die. Keep a sharp eye out for arrow shaped projectiles and use anchoring to destroy red ball projectiles, or simply dodge them.You can also graze projectiles which basically means you can touch them but not directly and you wont die.If you are about to get hit and have nowhere to go be sure to use bombs.There is an extra bomb on each level and you can hold up to 6. Just make sure you have 5 before collecting it. Only bomb when you REALLY need to. And remember if you gather a bomb when you already have 6 then your not bombing enough. Try bombing at least once per stage, if you avoid using it throughout the stage then use it on the boss of that stage. Complete the game without losing a heart and this will unlock after the credits.
|No Bomb Clear||15|
|Complete the entire game without using a bomb.|
Quite possibly the easiest achievement in the game.Like I said in "Exelica Normal Ending" simply avoid pressing and you will get this you can die and use continues all you want you will still get this just don't use any bombs.You should get this while going for the first two achievements,easy enough
|Hard Mode 1CC||20|
|Complete the entire game at the highest difficulty level and without using a continue.|
A very tricky but doable achievement. Completing the game on HARD is no easy feat. The best advice I can give is to go to Options and go to "Select Stage", from here you can pick stages 1-5 and when you start a game you will start on whichever stage you chose.Set it to whichever stage you wish to practice I recommend practicing Stage 5 but try practicing them ALL without dying and try to memorize ship patterns. Stage 5 is clearly the Hardest and you need to memorize what comes out and when.Be sure to use anchors as like always and utilize bombs to avoid deaths.If you ever need an alternative to bombs to stay alive you can always anchor large ships and swing them around to destroy bullets coming towards you to stay alive a little longer. It's also important to note that you can put Extend Type on every 25,000,000 that way as you rank up points you will get more lives which helps you last longer.Remember, you can lose lives when going for this achievement just not all of your lives. Again, this is a very difficult achievement and will take a while to obtain.
|Destroy all the bosses and complete the entire game without dying at Normal difficulty or higher.|
Hardest achievement in the game, Perfect Play will drive you nuts! Difficulty must be on NORMAL or HARD and if you die even once you'll have to quit out and try again.You must also defeat all forms of all Bosses(including both Faintear fights) so be sure to get many score items or else you won't face all the forms of each boss.Here are all the bosses you must defeat and the points needed to face each form.
