Welcome to the trophy guide for Null Drifter. This can also be considered a walkthrough and may be used for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Steam. Achievements for Steam and Xbox are in almost all cases the same as the PlayStation 4 Trophies. A roadmap is provided in the stages below.

Follow us on twitter for the latest news and giveaways.

Stage 1 – Play for Fun.


Shoot and kill the enemies, collect coins and power ups (boosters) that the enemies drop. Enjoy this, quick and easy platinum, retro style shoot-em-up.

While playing for fun, aim to reach level 6 (Level Master lvl 3 Trophy) and dash through an enemy by facing it and then pressing R1. (Through You Trophy).
Each time you play the game, it is random which enemies/bosses you get. Depending on which enemies you face will be the rewards you get at the game over screen . One item is called a palette, you need 5 palettes for a trophy.(Color Mania Trophy).
Spend the coins you collected at the shop. (It will automatically appear after the game over screen). Buying 10 ship upgrades gets you a trophy (Unlock Nerd Trophy) and helps you play better and get further in the game, as all unlocks/upgrades carry over.

Stage 2 – Kills, Coins and Boosters.


Everything will come naturally, most of the trophies could pop before you reach a trophy for playing your tenth game. These are the trophies to aim for:
Collect a total of 600 coins.
Kill 5 bosses
Kill 200 minions.
Collect 48 boosters.
Play the game 10 times
.

See full trophy playthrough video below.
Only other advice, like seen in the video, is to change the display settings, but that is down to preference. E.g. turning off-screen shake etc might make it slightly easier.

 Level Master lvl 3
Reach level 6.

At the top center of the game screen, it states what level you are currently on. After killing a few enemies and a boss you will move up a level. As you progress through the game, it gets a little faster with more enemies. Try your best to collect the boosters dropped from enemies, as these can give you an advantage, like better weapons or an upgrade. The more you play the game, the more coins you earn, and the more you spend in the shop to upgrade your ship, the easier the game becomes.


 Boss Killer
Kill 5 bosses.

Shoot and kill the boss enemies, they are much larger than most and take a lot more bullets to kill. They will explode once they have died and drop coins and/or boosters. Kill 5 for this trophy. Some bosses release a shock wave type blast, use R1 to boost through this so it won’t damage you. 


Example of one of the bosses on the left. See the shockwave it has fired in the center of the screen.
