25 years after the events of the Habroxia, a growing concern about the status of the enemy aliens results in a scouting party being sent to find information on their whereabouts. Fortunately, all but one of the Scouts returned. Unfortunately, that missing Scout is the father of Sabrina, a talented pilot who refuses to let her old man disappear without a fight. Following an SOS signal he left before going silent, Sabrina will travel across Space to find and fight, some familiar alien faces as well as some new ones. Eager to rescue her father, she'll need to move quickly and swiftly. Otherwise, it's not guaranteed she'll see her father again.
Step 1: Play through the game
You'll need to complete the Campaign once before you'll unlock New Game+, Boss Rush mode and Boost Mode. As you work your way through each level, be sure to look out for the 12 Astronauts and the 12 Enemy Bounties. There is one of each in the regular 12 campaign levels. You don't have to get them all here but go for as many as you can to make cleanup easier. Don't spend any money until you've accumulated 1,000 in your wallet. Once you have that trophy out of the way, you can spend freely/however you wish. You'll earn all of the boss-related trophies along the way and possibly a few of the miscellaneous trophies, depending on how attentive you are to them. Don't fret too much if you miss any though, as they're all easy to clean up afterward.
Once you've completed the Campaign the first time, you will have earned:
Show You the Way
Time to Hide
Blood and Rockets
Cowgirl in the Sand
Some Strange Rain
Happiness Is A Warm Gun
How To Disappear Completely
Stick to Yr Guns
Step 2: New Game+
Now that you're done with your first playthrough, you'll have unlocked New Game+. All of your upgrades will carry over as well as any money you had leftover in your wallet so you'll start this mode off already pretty well armed. If you find yourself struggling at all, spend a few minutes grinding out some of the easier levels to get money for upgrades.
Once you've completed New Game+, you will earn:
Just Say Goodbye
Step 3: Boss Rush Mode and Boost Mode
There are two additional game modes available once you complete the Campaign the first time. Boss Rush Mode is endless so you'll just be aiming for a score (20,000) and Boost Mode is a short but challenging mode that will more than likely take you a few tries to complete. See both of those respective trophies for more details regarding them.
Once you've completed the extra modes, you will have unlocked:
To Death With You
Step 4: Clean-up
If you didn't already get all of the Astronauts or Bounties, you can use chapter select to get them (they can be picked up in normal or New Game+). You will have more than likely earned the majority of the miscellaneous trophies as you played through your two campaign runs but if you're still missing anything, the recommended chapters for each are provided under their respective trophies.
Once you've cleaned up the last of the extra tasks, you will have earned:
Can't Find My Heart
Let Me Get There
There Is An End
