Astro Tripper is a top-down shooter that is sort of three dimensional (some levels have more than one layer). All of the trophies can be done in one play through, but at the same time, you can miss all of them in that play through if you don't do things correctly. There are four worlds in this game, and each level has multiple stages. Each world has two trophies that can be earned in it. All of the trophies can be earned by playing on Easy though. Be warned though, each stage has a time limit, and if you get hit with anything, you'll have to start the world over.
This is where you'll be stating out. There are three levels to get through here. The first two are all about getting used to the controls. On either of the first two, you can earn "Pod Oppressor." When you see a little red pod floating around, don't shoot it. Just let it sit there for a few seconds until it mutates. Once it mutates into a spinning disk with blades, kill it. Doing that 10 times will get you your first trophy.
The third level here is the Spider Boss and where you'll get "Spidery Point." Clear out all the pods first. Once the Spider Boss shows up, avoid its missile attacks. After it shoots a few missiles, it'll shoot some orbs at you that you can destroy. Be careful not to shoot any of its weapons if you want the trophy. After the orbs are destroyed, the Spider will open its mouth, so fire as fast as you can. Just before the Spider closes its mouth, it'll send a blast of energy out at you. It'll come fast, so be ready to avoid it. Repeat as many times as you need to in order to destroy it.
This is the second world. Your main enemies are tanks, turrets, and helicopters. The first one you'll want to go for is "Tank Oppressor." What the description means by "Destroy 20 tanks in sequence" is that you destroy 20 tanks consecutively without destroying anything else. You can easily do that in the first level of this world. The only thing you'lll have to be careful is not to destroy a turret or a generator.
The other trophy ("Tank Sympathsizer") is a little more difficult, but can be easily done on the second level because of how small it is. You can also get this on the first level too. Anyway, fire at the generators as quickly as you can, but also ignoring the tanks. If you can destroy any helicopters without destroying a tank, do it, but be careful. Take the generators one at a time and dodge the incoming fire from the tanks.
The first of the two trophies, "Fly Swatter" can be earned on the first level. Towards the end, you'll be attacked by six Flypods. Destroy three of them as fast as you can for the trophy. The other trophy, "Worm Tangle" is much more difficult and is done on the second level. You'll see the worms moving around the level. Ignore them and clear out as much as you can of everything else. Once the level is basically clear, kill the worms one after the other for the trophy.
Temple of the Gods
This world has two of the most challenging trophies in the game. First up is "Wheel Collector", which is the most difficult. This is earned on the second level of this world. There will be sets of two wheels that move along tracks. Between the two wheels are lasers. If the beam is big, avoid it. If it's small, you can pass through it. DO NOT SHOOT THE WHEELS!!! You can't destroy them if you want the trophy. However, at the same time as this, you'll have the normal enemies to destroy. If that wasn't enough, you'll have to destroy all of the enemies in just under 80 seconds since the wheels need to time to get off of the level for it to end. Luck, patience, and practice are the keys here. If you destroy a wheel on accident or you don't have enough time, get yourself destroyed and start over.
The final boss is where you'll get the other trophy, "Sneeky Incursion". To damage the boss, you have to open one of the doors. To do that, you'll have to avoid or destroy the other enemies and destroy orbs on either side of one of the doors. Once you have that door opened, stay in the door and move around with it, attacking when you have the chance. Dodge the bosses attacks when they come too. With a little bit of practice, you'll be able to get through this.
