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.

Training Grounds

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.

Insect Infestation

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.

8 trophies ( 3  )

  • Destroy 10 mutated pods in any one level of Training Grounds.

    You can easily do this on the first level. When the game starts, a bunch of pods (enemies) will spawn. If you let them live for about 10-15 seconds they will mutate. Let 10 of these do this and kill them. Each mutated pod will net you 500 points without any multiplier.

  • Destroy the Spider Boss on Arachnophobia, without destroying any of its mini guns.

    This is achieved on the third level in the Training Grounds world. What you need to do is first clear the level of all pods. Once the Arachnoid appears, move to one of the blast doors on either side of the map. Once there the Arachnoid will not be able to come too close to you. He will shoot missiles first, so dodge them. He will then shoot some kind of energy that you can shoot so that it will not hit you. Be very careful shooting the energy as to not hit the spiders weapons. Once you shoot the energy he should open his mouth. When that happens shoot his belly, but beware...he will shoot back some energy that is pretty fast. You should only have to do this twice if you shoot fast enough.

  • Destroy 20 tanks in sequence.

    You can get this in the first level of the second world 'Claustrophobia'. The level has two sides but don't worry about it right now. For this trophy you need to destroy 20 tanks in a row without killing anything else so when you start the level, go to the left where the tanks come out of the two holes. Just destroy them every time they come up, but be sure to dodge the turret thing that will appear behind you as it shoots missiles. Once you rack up 20 the trophy is yours.

  • Destroy both generators on Claustrophobia without killing a Tank.

    This can be somewhat difficult. This is on the second map of the 'Dreadnoughts' world. There are generators on both sides of the map. Easiest way is to take out the generator on the left side and then take out the right side. On the right side there will be three tanks and you will have to dodge their bullets to take out the generator.

  • Destroy 3 Flypods within 5 seconds on any level of Insect Infestation.

    You can get this in the first level of the third world 'Insect Infestation'. Toward the end of the level there will be 6 Flypods that come at you; 3 on the left and 3 on the right. Pick a row and shoot as fast as you can to take all 3 down within 5 seconds.

  • Destroy 3 Worms in sequence on The Ooze.

    This can be achieved on the second level of the 'Insect Infestation' world. There will be needle enemies on both sides of the map. Your goal is to eliminate as many of them as possible; then worms will start to appear. Do not shoot them but continue to eliminate enemies as careful as possible not to hit the worms. Try to get the screen as clear as possible and take down 3 worms in a row and you should get the trophy.

  • Destroy the Boss without opening more than one outer door. Only 1 of the 3 outer doors may be opened to any degree.

    This can be achieved against the boss of the fourth level of the 'Temple of Gods' world. You need to destroy two orbs that are next to / adjacent to each other. They will have a door in between them. When you destroy the orbs it opens the door and you can only open one door. When you go through the door he uses a yellow laser that is very easy to avoid. Basically try to stay in rotation with the door that you created because if the battle gets to hectic you can exit back through the door. When you've shot him enough he will go berserk and send out a wave and the room will go the opposite direction. When this happens get out NOW! Repeat this until he's dead.

  • Complete level Fizz Wheels without killing a Fizz Wheel, ( the rolling wheels connected by a laser ).

    Probably the hardest trophy in the game. This trophy requires both luck and skill. This can be achieved on the second level of the 'Temple of Gods' world. There will be Wheels that are paired together. Your goal is to complete the level without killing any of these things. You can shoot them just don't kill them. The part that makes this trophy so hard is you have to have the last regular pod killed with about 40 seconds left on the clock, which will allow the Fizz Wheels enough time to exit the level and the level will end.
