Introduction:

Welcome to the Independence Day Break Head to Head Trophy Guide!
Indie Developers smobile return with the “Head to Head” version of their Independence Day Break release,
This is the 10th release in the series of the brick breaker games and of course, just like the others, you will get the platinum trophy with minimal time and effort.

Roadmap:

Step 1: Play One Vs. Match
You will need a second controller for this, or the ability to Remote Play with a mobile device.
You do not need to win, or score a certain amount of points, so simply start the 2 player game and purposely control your player 2 to ensure all 5 lives are lost in no time by letting the ball past your paddle.

Doing this will net you a couple of trophies, so you’ll then be ready to proceed onto the next step.

Step 2: Play with the Characters Ami (1st), Rai (3rd) & Tami (4th)
The above 3 Characters are the suggested Characters to use for this version. This is slightly different compared to the previous instalments of the game, however it has the same effect. Remember to switch back to the menu after winning a match and chose the next character along to ensure you are progressing Gold 3 characters played

A few things to remember; you will need to complete a level fast for Bronze Fast player, and slowly for Bronze Slow player. You’ll also need to complete a level ensuring you collect all the power ups dropped for Bronze All power ups collected and win 3 matches in a row for  3 win streak.

Other than these pretty much everything else will come naturally whilst playing. If you are having issues with a particular trophy please refer to the trophy description below where I have given examples of which character I used when the trophy pops. I have also included my full unedited Platinum Trophy video below.

Tips and Strategies:

Independence Day Break Head to Head only requires you to collect power-ups, rather than multiple ones, or defeating a number of enemies a certain way, as was the original games.
It is highly likely that you will obtain the miscellaneous collectible trophies simply by collecting all the power-ups that drop.

I have included the Instructions here for a quick reference as to what Power Up does what, plus which Bosses to look out for.

Independence Day Break Head to Head master
Collected all the trophies in the game.

Become a Independence Day Break Head to Head master! Collected all the trophies in the game.

Fast player
Completed a level quickly.

There is no actual visible timer within the game screen, so there is no quick way to know how you are doing with obtaining this trophy. You can of course time yourself with an external device, but in all honesty you will probably earn this trophy without even trying.

The developers have confirmed that you are required to beat the level quicker than 100 seconds in order to achieve this trophy.

If you are struggling with this trophy I would suggest using the  4th Character Tami, as this is who I was using when I obtained the trophy.

Slow player
Completed a level slowly.

There is no actual visible timer within the game screen, so there is no quick way to know how you are doing with obtaining this trophy. You can of course time yourself with an external device, but in all honesty you will probably earn this trophy without even trying.

The developers have confirmed that you are required to beat the level slower than 130 seconds in order to achieve this trophy.

If you are struggling with this trophy I would suggest using the  3rd Character Rai, as this is who I was using when I obtained the trophy.

Frank defeated
Defeated a Frank mini boss.

Frank is one of the 3 Mini Bosses that will be trying to destroy your paddle when they are in the match. Most of the time they will float around the screen when they appear and try to shoot you with their shot. On some levels these bosses will appear in a static place and you can kill them in the same manner as the moving ones.

This Mini Boss appears in multiple levels, however personally I achieved this whilst using the 3rd Character Rai.

M&K defeated
Defeated a M&K mini boss.

M&K is one of the 3 Mini Bosses that will be trying to destroy your paddle when they are in the match. Most of the time they will float around the screen when they appear and try to shoot you with their shot. On some levels these bosses will appear in a static place and you can kill them in the same manner as the moving ones.

This Mini Boss appears in multiple levels, however personally I achieved this during my Vs. Match whilst using the 1st Character Ami.

Patty defeated
Defeated a Patty mini boss.

Patty is one of the 3 Mini Bosses that will be trying to destroy your paddle when they are in the match. Most of the time they will float around the screen when they appear and try to shoot you with their shot. On some levels these bosses will appear in a static place and you can kill them in the same manner as the moving ones.

This Mini Boss appears in multiple levels, however personally I achieved this whilst using the 3rd Character Rai.

Turbo player
Hit ball 3 times in turbo paddle mode without losing life.

Hold  to make the paddle speed increase and try to bounce the ball 3 times without letting it past you. This can be obtained on any level and at any time.

Sticky player
Caught ball 3 times with sticky paddle without losing life.

The Sticky Paddle Power Up will let the balls stick to your paddle in order to better select a shot that will be at the angle of your choice. When you have the ball stuck you will need to press the  button to release the ball back into the play area. 
Simply catch the ball (or a combination of balls) 3 times and fire it back up without losing a life in between.

This Power Up appears in multiple levels, however personally I collected it whilst using the 4th Character Tami.

Shielded player
Hit ball 3 times with shield (bottom wall) without losing life.

The Shield Power Up gives you a barrier at the bottom of the screen just in case you let the ball past.
For this trophy you are required to let the bouncing ball hit the barrier 3 times before it expires. When you get this Power Up simply let the ball past you and keep your paddle out of the way.

This Power Up appears in multiple levels, however personally I collected it whilst using the 3rd Character Rai.

Invincible player
Survived a mini boss attack through invincible paddle.

You will need to collect the Invincible Paddle Power Up and then let one of the Mini Bosses hit your paddle with the fire shot whilst your paddle is still Yellow for this one.

This Mini Boss appears in multiple levels, however personally I achieved this whilst using the 3rd Character Rai.

Slow and steady
Destroyed 3 items with slow ball without losing life.

Sometimes a bit tricky as collecting the Slow Ball Power Up will put the speed down to 0.5. thus making it harder to get that ball bouncing up and down enough to destroy the cakes. Fortunately the Power Up items also count for this trophy and only require one hit to destroy.

This Power Up appears in multiple levels, however personally I collected it whilst using the 1st Character Ami.

Laser collected
Collected laser power up.

All you need to do for this trophy is collect the relevant Power Up as it falls. As soon as you collect the Laser Power Up you will have the ability to fire with the  button.

This Power Up appears in multiple levels, however personally I collected it whilst using the 3rd Character Rai.

Wide paddle collected
Collected wide paddle power up.

As soon as you collect the Wide Paddle Power Up your paddle will increase in size, thus making it easier to bounce the ball off of.

This Power Up appears in multiple levels, however personally I collected it whilst using the 4th Character Tami.

Fireball collected
Collected fireball power up.

All you need to do for this trophy is collect Fire Ball Power Up as it falls. You will release Power Ups randomly by breaking a “Gold Star”. The Fire Ball Power Up will turn your ball to fire and destroy everything in its path and is of a red colour.

This Power Up appears in multiple levels, however personally I collected it whilst using the 3rd Character Rai.

3-ball collected
Collected 3-ball power up.

The 3-Ball Power Up is quite a tricky one, as collecting it will give you three ball total to play with; luckily, all you need to do for this trophy is collect one as it falls.

This Power Up appears in multiple levels, however personally I collected it whilst using the 3rd Character Rai.

Laser lord
Destroyed 5 items with laser without losing life.

As soon as you collect the Laser Power Up you will have the ability to fire with rapidly tapping the  button. Simply destroy 5 items whilst this is active.

This Power Up appears in multiple levels, however personally I collected it whilst using the 3rd Character Rai.

Fireball fury
Destroyed 5 items with fireball without losing life.

The Fire Ball Power Up will turn your ball to fire and destroy everything in its path.
The first time you collect this you will most likely obtain this trophy, as long as you keep the ball alive.

This Power Up appears in multiple levels, however personally I collected it whilst using the 3rd Character Rai.

Mega Bomb
Destroyed 3 items with a bomb.

The Mega Bomb allows you to control a target into a position exactly where you want to place it. This is extremely useful if you have things stuck in a corner that you are struggling to reach.
Once you have collected this turquoise Power Up use the  stick to position the target and press the  button to fire.

This Power Up appears in multiple levels, however personally I collected it whilst using the 3rd Character Rai.

Combo power up collected
Collected a combo of 3 or more power ups.

For this you will need to destroy the power up items in quick succession and then collect the power ups that fall whilst others are still active. Very easy when you obtain the Laser Power Up, or Fireball Power Up early in a level, as you can destroy the breakables that you want very quickly.

It does not matter which combination you collect, as long as all three are active.

Power Ups appear in every level, however I personally obtained this trophy whilst using the 3rd Character Rai.

All power ups collected
Collected all powers ups and collectibles in level.

Easier in the beginning levels, however try not to rush the level and concentrate on collecting all of them, including the ones that fall from the beaten Mini Bosses. You are allowed to lose a life between collecting the Power Ups, as long as you collect them all.

I personally obtained this trophy whilst using the 4th Character Tami.

Mini boss attacks survived
Survived all mini boss attacks in a level.

You will need to make it through at least one level without letting the Mini Boss shoot your paddle with their fire shot.
Most levels feature Mini Bosses, so you would be earning these one naturally as you play through the minimum 3 levels required.

Mini Bosses appears in multiple levels, however personally I achieved the trophy whilst using the 3rd Character Rai.

7 lives win
Completed a level with 7 or more lives remaining.

You start each level with 5 lives and you can gain lives by collecting the Life Collectible that appears just like a Power Up.
Lives are also awarded you every 10,000 points obtained, so you will most likely obtain this trophy without even worrying too much about it.

I personally obtained this trophy whilst using the 3rd Character Rai.

High 5 player
Destroyed an item at 5x speed.

Getting your ball to 5x speed can be quite tricky, but the aim here is to keep bouncing the ball off of the lower items to increase the speed it returns. You can also increase the speed by bouncing it off the angle of the paddle and hitting multiple items during within quick succession.
Try to stay away from the Power Up that slows your ball down, as this will ruin all the momentum you have built up.

30K points scored
Scored 30000 points in a level.

This will most probably come naturally as you play. Points are award for breaking the breakables and completing the levels as quickly as possible, with more points awarded the quicker you combine and destroy thing whilst completing the level.
The quicker the ball is moving the higher the multiplier is, so try to keep the ball moving as fast as possible.

The trophy will pop as soon as you reach 30,000 in game points. You also gain more points at the end of the game based on how many lives you have left, if you fail to achieve this amount during play.

I personally obtained this trophy whilst using the 3rd Character Rai.

Played a level in 1P vs 2P mode.

You will need a second controller for this, or the ability to Remote Play with a mobile device.
You do not need to win, or score a certain amount of points, so simply start the 2 player game and purposely control your player 2 to ensure all 5 lives are lost in no time by letting the ball past your paddle.

Consecutive win
Defeated CPU consecutively.

You’ll need to win 2 matches in a row against the CPU in order for this one to pop.
If you are struggling, then keep practicing different levels until you feel you are getting better at the game and then head back to the first few characters to attempt this trophy, as they tend to be the easier levels.
