Welcome to the Aircraft Evolution Trophy Guide!
Released by Sometimes You, Aircraft Evolution is a remake of a retro flight action game putting you in various war settings you are tasked to bomb away to obliterate the enemy and complete your missions.

As with previous SY games, gameplay is simple, and all trophies will be easy to achieve. You won’t need to watch a walkthrough or anything for this plat, it’s a pick up and play game with a nice and straightforward trophy list, but I will just drop some pointers so you know what to expect which may help speed up your completion, then you can just crack on with completing those 40 missions!



Step 1: Play through all 40 levels.
You will get the majority of your trophies naturally as you play though the 40 levels and remember to upgrade your Aircraft to make this step a breeze. 
See the tips section for more details on how to make this step easier.

You’ll be earning these trophies:
Bronze Beginning
Gold Bomber
Silver Through a minefield
Bronze First step
Gold Demolisher
Bronze Continuation
Gold Halfway
Silver Warrior of the Sky
Silver On the way to victory
Gold Exterminator
Gold Winner
Gold Triumph

Step 2: Miscellaneous trophy clean-up
You may be missing some miscellaneous trophies at the end of your playthrough, so feel free to check out the trophy descriptions below for those you are.

During this step you’ll earn these trophies:
Bronze Just do it
Silver On the new wings
Silver Rich
Silver Tank slayer

Gold Air mechanic
Gold Best in the sky

Gold Firework
40-platinum Aircraft Evolution Platinum


Tips and Strategies:

  • You can change the game settings to easy.
  • Cluster bombs are your best friend. They are cheap and do good damage. Buy hundreds of them try to always have about 100-200 in your inventory! I would complete nearly every level by just spamming cluster bombs.
  • Super heavy bomb’s are gold dust. Use them sparingly. Save about 50+ for era 4, which is considerably more built up. If you don’t have a lot of bomb’s in era 4 you’re gonna have a miserable time.
  • Take note of what your actual mission is at the start of each level! It could just say ‘Destroy all buildings’, in which case save some bombs and ignore all the other foot soldiers and tanks etc. 
  • Always have about 5 repair kits on you, and about 5 fuel cans… Just incase. I very rarely needed them but they are cheap and its better to be safe than sorry.
  • The only ways I ever died would be if I accidentally crashed into the ground; so if you want to loop-de-loop always start it by flying UPWARDS as you have plenty of room in the sky! Sounds silly but too many times I tried to loop by starting going down and my turn circle wasn’t tight enough so hit the ground.
  • There will be 3 bonus missions that just give you goodies (but they cannot be replayed once you have completed them), mission 9, 24, & 37. Fly into as many bomb crates as possible, ESPECIALLY look out for the light blue ones to grab as they are the best super heavy bombs! You can get 50 super heavy bombs in a bonus mission…. and considering 1 costs £300 each to buy that’s pretty darn good so grab those freebies!
  • There will be 3 boss battle missions that you will need to use heavy bombs or super heavy bombs to destroy. In mission 10, 20, & 30.
  • All destroy trophies should unlock by the time you’ve finished the game, but if you need more tank kills, replay mission 28 which is all tanks. If you need more aircraft kills replay mission 26 which is all planes.
  • For the max upgrade trophy the cheapest thing to fully upgrade is your starting wooden plane.
  • You can buy 10 planes but don’t buy them all save your money. You HAVE to buy the most expensive one (£5,000) for a trophy, and I would recommend only buying 2 others. (Ok 3 max if you must.) You’re gonna want to save plenty of cash to always be heftily stocked up on cluster bombs to fly through the game quicker.
  • Feel free to mix it up but I did it this way: First fully upgraded my wooden plane that you start with – Then bought Lv 9 plane – Then bought Lv 18 plane – then bought final Lv 30 plane. Added various upgrades to all. 
  • Always upgrade armour & bomb stuff. Upgrade the rest how you like.

Trophy Guide:

Aircraft Evolution Platinum
Good job! Completed all tasks!

Good job! Completed all tasks!

Tank slayer upscale-245262160018212
Destroy 500 tanks

This may unlock before you complete the game.
If by the end you still need some tank kills, replay mission 28 which is ALL tanks. (I just needed to replay this mission twice to unlock my last trophy).

Warrior of the Sky upscale-245262160018212
Destroy 200 aircrafts

You do not need to destroy aircraft for most missions, so just destroy some as you go along completing the game. This trophy unlocked for me before I finished all the 40 missions, but if by the end you still need some aircraft kills replay mission 26 which is all planes.

NOTE:- If you have upgraded your aircraft and have good armour, I would find it easier and quicker to just fly into other planes and even the airships to destroy them! With strong armour it does surprisingly little damage, and you can always just use a repair kit if your own damage is low anyway.

Demolisher Gold
Destroy 200 buildings

This trophy will definitely unlock before you complete the game.

Exterminator Gold
Destroy 200 cannons

This should unlock before you finish the game. It unlocked for me in era 4.

Complete the first mission

Simply complete the very first mission which is basically just a tutorial.

Through a minefield upscale-245262160018212
Complete the fourth mission

This mission you just have to avoid all the mines in the sky and cross the finish line at the end.

These sky mine missions are timed so hold for the majority of the level for a speed boost. If your fuel gets low press :r1 to completely refill your fuel meter.

Just do it
Start the level anew 5 times

In the first or any mission, just dive and crash straight into the ground, then replay the level, do the same again until the trophy unlocks.

Halfway Gold
Halfway through the game

Will unlock after the 20th mission.

Air mechanic Gold
Upgrade the aircraft to maximum

The cheapest aircraft to upgrade to max is the starting wooden plane. I would recommend doing this as it will the the first few levels easier anyway.

Triumph Gold
Complete the whole game

Will unlock after completing all the 40 missions.

On the new wings upscale-245262160018212
Buy a new aircraft

Will unlock when you buy your first plane.

There are 10 different planes of varying levels that you can buy. To not waste too much money (which we will need to purchase many bombs and some more upgrades), I recommend buying these:-

  1. XP level 9 plane.
  2. XP level 18 plane.
  3. XP level 30 plane.
Bomber Gold
Blow up the building

Unmissable. Just for completing a mission in era 1.

Best in the sky Gold
Buy the best aircraft

You must buy the best plane which is the XP level 30 plane and costs £5,000.
While you are between XP level 20 to 30 begin to save up £5-7k so you can buy this plane and add some upgrades when you reach XP level 30. As the sooner you buy it, the easier and quicker it will make era 4.

First step
Pass the first era

Will unlock when you have completed the 10th mission.

Pass the second era

Will unlock when you have completed the 20th mission.

On the way to victory upscale-245262160018212
Go through the third era

Will unlock when you have completed the 30th mission.

Winner Gold
Go through the fourth era

Will unlock when you have completed the 40th mission.

Rich upscale-245262160018212
Accumulate 5000 finances

You will unlock this trophy when saving up money to buy the best aircraft which costs $5,000 to buy.

Firework Gold
Drop the superheavy bomb

You start the game with 2 of these in your inventory, so you will easily unlock this trophy when you drop the first one.
This is the best bomb in the game, the icon is a light blue colour. Don’t waste them! Save them for especially huge buildings, boss battles, and most of era 4.
