Section 2 Introduction

Alien Breed is an update to the game of the same name released in the early '90s on the Amiga and PC. The game can still be played in it's original form, but looks and plays better in the new Enhanced Mode. The new mode not only has the upgraded visuals but allows you to use the right stick for shooting, making the game considerably easier than Classic Mode.

The game offers single player, online and local co-op and even Ad-Hoc if you play the Vita version. Game and trophy progress can be shared between the PS3 and Vita, although the trophies don't auto pop; you'll need to complete at least part of a trophy requirement on the system you move your save to. For example, killing 100 enemies on your PS3 will unlock WARMING UP on that system. After moving the save to your Vita you only need one kill to unlock the trophy there.

All trophies can be earned in co-op and that's where the game can be the most fun, provided you have someone to play with. The online community is a bit scarce, so if you don't have a partner of your own use the Co-op Partners Thread to help find someone. The co-op trophies can also be done solo with two controllers or even simultaneously on PS3 and Vita, although some trophies are harder than others that way.

Section 3 Walkthrough

Step One - Single Player

Play through the five campaigns. Watch the Intro to Alien Breed. You can focus on the level and weapon specific trophies now if you like or wait for clean up. Your first purchase should be the map to help you get through the levels. Your second purchase should be a Flamethrower as it will help with several trophies. You can buy the rest of the weapons as you go, but if you're transferring your save to Vita be sure to save before you buy the last weapon to save yourself time. See LOCKED AND LOADED for more details.

Step Two - Co-op

Co-op can be done locally or online. If you need a partner use the Co-op Partners Thread to help find someone. To help minimize play time start with the level specific trophies. Once those are out of the way, load your favourite level and play it until you have earned one million points. Finally, continue playing until you have beaten 17 levels.

There is a somewhat useful exploit to online co-op, but it's really only helpful if you're boosting by yourself on PS3 and Vita at the same time. One player can drop out and the other can continue on alone while still getting credit for playing co-op. This can help add to your point total and number of levels played and can also be used for TREAD CAREFULLY. This method will not work for SMASHING or BURN, BABY BURN.

Step Three - Clean Up

You likely still need to earn several million points so go back to your favourite levels and grind out the needed points. If you've missed any of the miscellaneous trophies now is the time to get them.

21 trophies ( 21  )

  • MAKE YOUR FIRST KILL

    See WARMING UP

  • KILL 10 ALIENS

    See WARMING UP

  • KILL 100 ALIENS

    This is cumulative across all levels and weapons, simply kill 100 enemies total. Depending on how thorough you are in searching levels before completing your objectives you may have this as early as Alien Breed Level 3 - Power System.

  • FLAME 1000 ALIENS

    Amass 1000 kills using only Flamethrowers To get this out the way early on your first weapon purchase should be a Flamethrower. Weapons that count toward your total are the Ammet MP Flamethrower, Intex Ebon Flamethrower, Dalto Arc Flame (SE) and Ryxx Firebolt MK22 (SE).

  • REACH AN EXIT DECK LIFT WITH 1 SECOND REMAINING

    There are several levels that end by you reaching an elevator while an alarm with a timer counts down. The trophy can be earned on any of these levels, the first of which is Alien Breed Level 2 - Mainframe. If you make it to the elevator while there is still time on the clock just hang back shooting enemies until the timer winds down to one second.

  • WATCH THE ALIEN BREED PROLOGUE

    Start Alien Breed Level - 1 Shuttle Bay and watch the scrolling text without skipping. This will be your first trophy if you begin with single player.

  • COLLECT EVERY PICKUP ON A LEVEL

    You must collect every ammo, credit, health, key and Extra Life pick up in a single level by running over them. This can be done on any level and will come naturally if you like to explore the levels. Alien Breed Level 1 - Shuttle Bay or Convergence Level 1 - Lower Landing Bay are ideal if you're having trouble. They are both small levels with fewer pick ups.

  • COMPLETE ALIEN BREED LEVEL 2 WITHOUT FIRING YOUR WEAPON

    This trophy is level specific, simply run through Alien Breed Level 2 - Mainframe without ever firing a weapon. Before attempting this, back up your save to the PS+ Save File Cloud or external storage. Be sure to have at least three lives, ten keys and enough money to buy extra lives or health if you run into trouble. The map can also be a big help. Ignore all enemies and side rooms and head directly to your first objective. Enemies will run into and damage you along the way. Don't be too concerned with them and continue to the goal. If you see a heath pack in the open, grab it but don't go out of your way for one.

    Once you reach the first goal stand in the path of the spinning targets, destroying them in the process. When the countdown begins head towards the exit and get back on the elevator. Once you have the trophy you can load your save from the cloud and resume the game with your lives and keys intact.

  • PURCHASE ALL WEAPONS FROM THE SHOP

    There are 12 weapons available for purchase from the in game store, each of which cost 25,000 Credits. You'll need 300,000 Credits to buy them all. If you don't spend too much on extra lives or keys from the store you should have enough before you finish Valiance.

    If you're transferring saves back and forth between your PS3 and Vita be sure to back up your save to the Cloud before you purchase the final weapon. If you buy the last weapon before you transfer your save, you won't be able to unlock the trophy on your Vita. You'll need to start a new game and play until you pick up another 300,000 credits.

  • DEFEAT A BOSS WITHOUT FIRING THE ASSAULT RIFLE

    There are bosses on several levels throughout the game and you'll need to defeat one with any weapon other than the Assault Rifle. Your first opportunity will be in Alien Breed Level 3 - Power System. You can switch between weapons as long as you never use the Assault Rifle. The bosses are larger than regular enemies but still have to touch you to damage you. Keep your distance, keep firing and you'll take the boss quickly.

  • This can be done on any level and the Alien Breed Special Edition even has two levels which don't have any doors i.e Level 9 - Linkage Shaft and Level 11 - Location Unknown. However this can easily be done on the game's first level Alien Breed Level 1 - Shuttle Bay. From your starting position all you need to do is run in a straight line to the left to get to the exit. You'll need to pass through two doors almost immediately, which can be opened by shooting them with any gun whose ammo doesn't bounce off the walls.

  • COMPLETE A LEVEL IN CO-OP

    See ISR4-C

  • SCORE 1,000,000 CO-OP POINTS ON A LEVEL

    This can be done online or locally on any level, but the total points must be earned in the same level. You don't need to score one million points in one run through a level, although it would be possible to do so. It's more likely you will need to replay one level several times to get the cumulative total. Alien Breed Level 1 - Shuttle Bay works well.

  • COMPLETE 17 CO-OP GAMES

    This can be done online or locally and in tandem with HE SHOOTS, HE SCORES to cut down on time. Simply play a total of 17 Co-op games. Alien Breed Level 1 - Shuttle Bay is the quickest level to get through, especially if you are boosting the trophy by yourself with two controllers. You only need to run in a straight line to the left and through two doors. The game will only let the two players get as far away from each other as the width of the screen, so you'll need to move the second player a little bit. If you move one player all the way to the left before the game stops you, you'll be able to go the rest of the way with the second player.

  • KILL 2 ALIENS WITH ONE SHOT

    There are several guns whose ammo bounces off walls and through enemies. You'll need one of these and a corridor with at least two enemies. You can either try to line up a shot that will pass through two enemies or you can do a bank shot and let the shot ricochet off the walls into multiple enemies. The Intex Arc Laser Gun and High Impact Astro (SE) work well.

  • DIE TOGETHER IN THE MASHERS ON CONVERGENCE LEVEL 4

    On the left side of the map in Convergence Level 4 - Shuttle Control there is a set of pistons in the corridor. Simply walk in between them with your co-op partner and let the pistons handle the rest. Here is the map location and a screenshot of the Mashers.



    The small white dot is the player.

     

  • KILL 50 ALIENS DURING A COUNTDOWN

    Several levels feature an alarm and countdown for you to make it to an objective. The countdowns are impossible to miss with their red lights and computer voiced notification. You must kill fifty enemies during a single countdown. Some of the later levels, particularly Valiance Level 3 - Engineering Core and Synergy Level 1 - Shuttle Bay 3, have longer timers which will help you reach your total. The countdown ends when you reach your goal, but you don't need to end the countdown to earn the trophy. Rather than head to the goal, you may prefer to head to areas where enemies spawn more frequently.

  • DEFEAT A BOSS ALIEN TOGETHER WITH FLAMETHROWERS

    This is stackable with WHO'S THE BOSS?. In Co-op take down a boss with both players using Flamethrowers. Your first opportunity will be Alien Breed Level 3 - Power System. The bosses are larger than regular enemies and do more damage, but they can still only damage you when they touch you. Keep your distance and focus your fire on the boss and it will go down quickly.

  • COMPLETE ALIEN BREED SE LEVEL 11 IN CO-OP WITHOUT TRIPPING THE ALARM

    The alarm in this level is triggered by running into the walls. The entire level is dark but there are red lights along the walls to help guide you. You can also use weapons fire to help figure out where the walls are in the darker areas. Just stay away from the lights and work your way to the exit.

    If you're boosting this trophy by yourself with two controllers stock up on extra lives and back up your save first. You can leapfrog the players past one another and completely ignore the enemies.

     

  • SCORE 17,171,717 POINTS TOTAL SINGLE OR CO-OP PLAY

    This will likely be your last trophy. Points earned in all game types and levels count towards your total. Depending on your play style you may need as many as an additional ten million points after you've finished the rest of the game. You can repeat the main campaign or just replay your favourite levels until you have enough points. If you play on both the PS3 and Vita, be sure to transfer your save to the Cloud before switching systems to avoid losing progress.

  • COMPLETE ALIEN BREED

    You must complete all 30 levels in the game. There are 6 levels in Alien Breed, 12 in Alien Breed Special Edition and 4 each in Convergence, Valiance and Synergy.
