Null Drifter is a 1-Bit twin stick-shooter, developed by Pandamonium and published by eastasiasoft. The game consists of a single screen on which you defeat randomly spawning waves of enemies of escalating difficulty, with a boss at the end of each "level". Your arsenal consists of a gun you shoot by using the right analog stick and a dash that grants you invincibility for a short duration and can be used to kill enemies by pressing .
You should be able to get the platinum trophy simply by playing the game in around an hour, though this can vary to some degree as your skill as well as power-up drop luck can shorten or lengthen your experience quite a bit.


Step 1 - Reach level 6

You may very well obtain every other trophy while going for this one, so just make this your priority and everything else should fall into place naturally. As said before, the game consists of only one screen, though the enemies will get stronger and stronger from level to level while you can only upgrade your ship once you die (power ups picked during your run notwithstanding). As such you can have drop luck and be able to withstand the ever increasing onslaught, or you would have to upgrade your ship a few times before you are able to weather the storm. Also, remember that you only have to reach level 6, you do not have to complete it. For more information, see Level Master lvl 3 .

At the end of this Step you should have (at least) obtained the following trophies:

  • Level Master lvl 1
  • Level Master lvl 2
  • Level Master lvl 3

Step 2 - Clean up / Miscellaneous

Should you, by some miracle of the gods, sheer skill or simply dumb luck, reach level 6 before getting all of the other trophies simply keep playing the game. There are no special requisites for any of the trophies, everything will come naturally, eventually (as long as you are actually playing the game, that is).

At the of this Step you should have obtained the following trophies:

  • Killer lvl 1
  • Killer lvl 2
  • Killer lvl 3
  • Collector lvl 1
  • Collector lvl 2
  • Collector lvl 3
  • Money Hunter lvl 1
  • Money Hunter lvl 2
  • Money Hunter lvl 3
  • Color Mania
  • Unlock Nerd
  • Through You
  • Winner
  • Pixel Master

18 trophies ( 10  4  )

  • Unlock all other trophies

    Do I have to tell you what you have to do here? Get all the other trophies, go go go!

    If you would to have a look at how a trophy run might go down, feel free to check out my run of the game:

  • Play the game 10 times

    As straight forward as it sounds. Simply start the game 10 times and this trophy is yours. As you have to start the game again after each death anyway, this trophy will probably come naturally while going for Level Master lvl 3 , but if not, simply start the game again and immediately quit or die on purpose a few times to get this trophy.

  • Kill 25 minions

    See Killer lvl 3 .

  • Kill 75 minions

    See Killer lvl 3 .

  • Kill 200 minions

    As the descriptions says, kill 200 enemies and this trophy will be yours. This will come naturally while going for the other trophies.

  • Kill 5 bosses

    Bosses are the enemies at the end of each level. It is random which boss you will face, but their health will be increased from level to level while their attacks and patterns stay the same. A general strategy to defeat them is to strafe around the screen while dashing through their projectiles to make use of your invincibility frames.

  • Reach level 2

    See Level Master lvl 3 .

  • Reach level 4

    See Level Master lvl 3 .

  • Reach level 6

    This is probably the hardest trophy of the game. Reaching level 6 on your first run of the game can be quite challenging as not only do you have to rely on your skill, you also have to have a good deal of power-up drop-luck to get the necessary firepower to even be able to defeat the enemies on later stages, as they can turn into quite the bullet sponges. However, because you can permanently upgrade your ship between each run with the coins you have collected, it is only a question of how many upgrades you ultimately need to get this far into the game. So just keep playing/upgrading your ship and this trophy should unlock eventually.

    Also, keep in mind that you only have to reach level 6, you do not have to complete it (for reference, in my platinum trophy run - which took around 40 minutes -, I was able to get to level 11 multiple times.

  • Collect 12 boosters

    See Collector lvl 3 .

  • Collect 24 boosters

    See Collector lvl 3 .

  • Collect 48 boosters

    Boosters are upgrades that enemies will randomly drop, while bosses will always drop one. Their effect ranges from increased damage, to more bullets fired per button press, higher fire rate, recovered health and others. Simply keep collecting them during your runs and this trophy will be yours in no time.

  • Unlock 5 palettes

    Palettes are color changes that you can add to the game. Should you ever get tired of the same black and white of the game, why not spice things up with a bit of color?

    There are no requisites to getting any of the palettes, just keep playing the game and they will unlock eventually.

  • Unlock 10 ship upgrades

    You can buy various upgrades with the coins you collected during your run after you die. I found the upgrades that increase the number of bullets you fire, the damage increase and the shorter dash cooldown upgrades to be particularly useful during my run, but feel free to buy them in any order you want. As soon as you have bought your 10th upgrade, this trophy will be yours.

  • Dash through an enemy

    Simple enough. Press to dash and if you happen to kill an enemy with it, the trophy will pop. Best done in the early levels where the enemies do not have a lot of health.

  • Collect a total of 100 coins

    See Money Hunter lvl 3 .

  • Collect a total of 300 coins

    See Money Hunter lvl 3 .

  • Collect a total of 600 coins

    Every time you kill an enemy or boss, they will drop some coins. Simply fly through them to collect them. They are used to upgrade your ship after you die. Collect 600 of them and this trophy will be yours.
