Introduction:

Official Homepage (Japanese)

Note Point 1:
The names of some characters have no English translation, so until then, the following interpretations are based on my own readings.

Note Point 2:
All achievement titles have an English translation (once again, not official), and all descriptions have been translated to English.

Note Point 3:
Mission Achievements do not unlock until the end of a stage, so even if you fulfill the criteria for each mission task, you'll need to defeat the boss to unlock it.

  • ストーリーモード イージーをクリア

    Translation - Easy Clear

    Story Mode Clear on Easy

    Finish all 10 chapters. Basic rules to clearing the later levels is to use a good combo that can take down enemy health at a faster rate in exchange for high score runs. Counter Shield II is a must as it can save you if you're using it and get hit by a bullet or projectile. If you still have trouble, collect lives on the stage (appear randomly) and fail soon after to keep it in your total.

    For Hard mode, after 30 hours of total play, you'll unlock an Extra Item called God/Mode which will allow you to pass through harder stages with permanent invincibility. You can use this all the way up to Chapter 10, and then farm the final boss for as many lives as you need to beat him.

    By this time, you should have enough to buy Demolish Ion Gun (120000CR) and Option Bit IV Quadral 2 (80000CR) which are the most powerful direct shot weapons. Ultimate Charge Bomb (80000CR) should be your Special Weapon as it can stop bullets that come into contact with it, and has an auto barrier.

Secret achievements

  • ストーリーモードでチャプター10をクリア

    Translation - Sevetier's Daybreak

    Clear Story Mode Chapter 10

    See "Jack Secured" for more info.

  • ストーリーモードでチャプターXをクリア

    Translation - Judgement Force Tiger

    Clear Story Mode Chapter X

    This mission has you running through an assortment of enemies, testing your skills with three different ships to choose from. If you're comfortable with the game, and feel like you can plan accordingly, you'll be glad to know on Easy difficulty, this isn't too bad. You'll have to run through 32 levels to reach the end. You earn an Extend every five levels.

  • ストーリーモードでチャプターYをクリア

    Translation - Judgement Force Dragon

    Clear Story Mode Chapter Y

    This is a bit harder as the enemies are no longer stationary. It's a bit like Asteroids, except with bullets and homing enemies to liven things up. Enemies can appear on the opposite side of where there were, so be cautious about your surroundings, and use everything you can to survive. There are 32 levels, with a 'boss' appearing at 16 and 32. Ship B is my recommended choice, as the bomb ability combined with the 'rescue shield' will save you in many delicate situations.

  • ストーリーモード ハードをクリア

    Translation - Hard Clear

    Story Mode Clear on Hard

    See "Easy Clear" for more info.

  • チャプター9のルートを真ん中→左→右の順で攻略(ストーリーモードのみ)

    Translation - Sequence of Destruction

    Took the strategic turn of center→left→right for Chapter 9's path (Story Mode only)

    You'll have to destroy the engines in the specific order as mentioned in the description.

  • いずれかのチャプターの初期残機数を最大(30機)まで増やした!(ストーリーモードのみ)

    Translation - Maximum Defence

    Increased upto max (30 stock) for your initial lives on any chapter! (Story Mode only)

    This may be better to go for while playing Hard, as you may need as many lives as you can get. Extend items drop from enemies randomly, and will save to your overall stock when you reach the result screen.

  • チャプター1の最初の戦闘シーンで強制的に振り切られた!(ストーリーモードのみ)

    Translation - Anchi Detected!?

    Chapter 1's starting battle scene was broken with force! (Story Mode only)

  • チャプター2でジャミングユニット未使用でサーチライトに発見されずにクリア!(ストーリーモードのみ)

    Translation - Security Breach

    Clear while undetected by searchlight with no Jamming Unit usage during Chapter 2! (Story Mode only)

    After the first part where you need to shoot the searchlights to reveal the boss, you'll come across a section with moving lights. Avoid coming into contact with them for about a minute. If you get trapped in a corner, you can run into enemies to respawn with the added bonus of not being able to set the alarm off for a few seconds.

    You can use the Slow ability to make this section easier to move through.

  • ゲームオーバー間際にエクステンドアイテムを取得して復活した!

    Translation - Revived by acquiring an Extend Item just before a Game Over!

    You can do this anywhere, so you'll likely get it by playing eventually. If you do want it quickly, load up Chapter 1 on Easy with no lives set and then destroy your ship as soon as you see an Extend pickup.

  • 累計スコアが5億点を超えた!(ストーリーモードのみ)

    Translation - And So We Went To Veteran

    Accumulative score has exceeded 500 million! (Story Mode only)

    This will probably be one of the last achievements you'll need, as you will not have enough points after finishing Hard difficulty, but should have at least 300 million by then. You'll have to keep playing through stages to increase the remaining amount of points needed for the total score. You can play Chapter 10 on Easy, and get anything between two and three million points in under a minute.

  • いずれかの難易度の全チャプタークリア合計が1時間を切った!(ストーリーモードのみ。スペシャルチャプターも含む)

    Translation - Time Attacker

    The total time for every chapter cleared on any difficulty had come under an hour! (Story Mode only. Special Chapter included)

    This will end up being difficult, almost impossible from the start, as you'll need to unlock stronger weapons by playing through the higher difficulties. Ultimate Charge Bomb is the best special weapon to have as it can do quite a lot of damage when fully charged, which will cut time during boss fights. The main and sub weapons are mostly a matter of choice.

    Your total time can be found under the Report option in Story Mode.

  • スピード切替時のバックファイアで敵を破壊した!

    Translation - Back Attack Reversal

    Destroy an enemy with backfire from switchover time!

    This isn't possible with the Uni Engine, as it has a fixed speed.

  • スコアアタックのプレイ回数が100回を超えた!

    Translation - 100 Times Played

    Play count for Score Attack has exceeded to 100 times!

    As mentioned above, you can lose all your ships at the start and this will count as one play. This should take around a minute each time, meaning this will take under two hours if you want to boost it that way.
