Welcome to the guide for Shoot 1UP DX, a shoot-em-up by Mother’s Best Games.

Tips – For local coop, a human 2nd player is recommended, but it is possible to do solo with 2 controllers.
Slow down the game speed from default if required, it will not affect trophies but disables score submission to the leaderboards.
Use the save states the game creates after each level to your advantage, this also will not affect trophies.
Choose the left/straight up route to make it easier, unless the trophy description suggests otherwise.
See the video under Robin’s Egg trophy for guidance on how to kill each boss.

Stage 1 – Campaign Playthroughs

Campaign – Play through each of the difficulty settings of the main game: Chilled, Normal and Serious. The difficulties do not stack. Slow down the game speed if you are struggling. Completing Level 4 will unlock Score Trek Mode.
Pies/Ovoid – Choose the right or back path option when you get the prompt, pies only spawn on these paths from the blue jelly-like enemies, shoot them for many points/1ups. Collect 2 pies in one game for a trophy and to unlock the second ship named Ovoid.
Scores/Shield – (Possibly easier in Score Trek Mode while going for Round and round/Loop 5 trophy). Use your shield attack on the slightly larger enemies to gain many points and to kill them quickly, also great against bosses. Collect the score points they drop. Use the shield attack 50 times in 1 playthrough. Shooting the pies can give many points. Pressing R1 to spread your ships out and form a larger shield will make it more powerful.
60x 1ups – It is recommended to have a human 2nd player for local coop, but it is possible to do it alone with 2 controllers. Play on the easiest/Chilled difficulty and lower the speed of the game. Choose the paths that do not fly upwards e.g. right or back, and shoot the pies. The pie on Level 5 gives you 1ups instead of points. (Possibly made easier in Score Trek mode if Player 2 is human and using a save state).
Spread/Plasma Auger – Press R1 with at least 6 ships collected to spread out and form the Plasma Auger Weapon, which is a large beam. In the top left of the screen, where it displays your ship count, you can see other symbols underneath that display what level of spread you are at when you press R1 and L1 to alter the size. Pressing R1 to max spread (9) and then killing an enemy while this is active will pop the trophy. (Note: Unsure if a boss kill is required or that the trophy pops at the end of a level)
If at any point you only have 2 ships remaining perform the Plasma Auger for a trophy, or start a new game on chilled, purposely get hit to kill 1 of the 3 ships, and then press R1 and perform the Plasma Auger.)
Don’t die – It might be worth returning to the main campaign to attempt this after you have played Score Trek Mode and got used to that playstyle. Play through Chilled without getting hit. Always press L1 to retract your ships. Check the screen after each level to see if you lost any ships.


Stage 2 – Score Trek Game Mode.

As you should know the game inside out by now, this Stage should be simple enough, there is no auger spread option, but make sure to still collect the 1ups to upgrade your ship.
You need to play through the game 5 more times in Score Trek Mode, each time getting harder, the only bonus is that once you kill a boss and start a new stage it creates a save state, and if you die you can select to continue from that point via the title screen. If you are playing in local coop with a human player. It is possible to revive each other, although you will lose 1ups, so decide if it is better to restart from the save point, or continue with the amount of lives you have, creating a new save state.
Always choose the Straight Up path, as it is easier and quicker.
Stay on the bottom left at the final boss, but slightly away from the enemies appearing at the edge of the screen. It is also possible to stay at the top left of the screen but harder to dodge a stray bullet.
