Iro Hero Trophy Guide

Trophy Roadmap:

Difficulty: 2/10
Estimated time to platinum: 20-30 Minutes
Missable trophies: None
Glitched trophies: None
difficulty related: None

Introduction:

Welcome to the trophy guide for Iro Hero, a vertical shoot ’em up inspired by other retro titles. Use this guide on your quick journey in achieving your platinum and saving the universe.

Roadmap:

Step 1: Play the Story Mode Until Half Way Through Chapter 2
During this step you will want to play the story mode option which consists of multiple campaign level. Its very rare you are able to achieve the platinum trophy in games prior to beating the campaign however, this will be one of those instances as you only need to get midway through chapter 2 before getting your platinum.

The reason I suggest this is because in order to get the Gold Armored Ship trophy, you must defeat an armored enemy ship which does not become available until this point in the game. The armored ships are the same as the normal enemy ships except they will have an armor body, giving them a tad bit more health than the normal enemies. They will take 2 more hits than the normal ships so still easy nonetheless.

Upon getting this trophy, it is very likely you will either have the platinum or just be 1-3 trophies shy. The trophies you might potentially be missing are Gold Tesla Shock, Gold Bullet Eater, and Gold Nyagu Terminator. Though most trophies in this game will come very naturally without you noticing, it is possible to miss these just as easily. You can clean any trophy you have missed in story mode.

Just note that most of the trophies require you to do the respective trophies in one sitting. This means you cannot quit the game at anytime. If you happen to quit for whatever reason, your total amount for whatever trophies you are going for will be reset back to 0. Keep this in mind if you are trying to get the last few bullet absorbs or kills that you might need. Upon completing this step, you are almost guaranteed to get the following trophies:

Silver Blue Enemy
Silver Red Enemy
Gold Gunship
Silver Spaceship
Gold Fighter
Gold Armored Ship
Gold Drop Gathered
Bronze Rookie
Silver Apprentice
Gold Hero
Silver Bullet Absorber
Silver Just Practicing
Gold Don’t give up
Silver Nyagu Killer

Step 2: Clean up / Platinum Achieved
This step may not be necessary as there is a good chance you will get all of the trophies during the first step if you are following my guide. This step is to provide some additional tips to keep in mind as you play through the game as well as tell how how to clean up any additional trophies that you may have missed during step one.

If you are missing any trophies it will likely be Gold Tesla Shock, Gold Bullet Eater, and Gold Nyagu Terminator. These trophies are earned for activating a Tesla Shock, Absorbing 100 bullets, and defeating 500 enemies. Keep in mind that all of these trophies need to be completed in one game session which means in one sitting. As long as you do not close your application, it will still count as one game session. This means if you made it to mission 2 to defeat an armored enemy and need to do some clean up, I would back out and replay mission 1 as it is easier to clean up on this level than any of the later levels in the game.

Also keep in mind that if you happen to lose all 3 of your ships at any point in time, all of the bullets you absorbed and enemies killed will still count. This is good to know, so you dont need to stress out if you die and come to the failed screen. For any more information you may need on achieving the trophies in this game, please view their respective trophies.

During this step you’ll earn these trophies:

Gold Tesla Shock
Gold Bullet Eater
Gold Nyagu Terminator
40-platinum Iro Hero

Iro Hero
Unlock all other trophies

This trophy will be unlocked after you have successfully earned all of the other trophies in the game. You shouldn’t have much trouble on your journey to earning this one! Despite the platinum being very quick and easy, the game is still an enjoyable and fun retro style vertical shooter.

Congratulations on adding a new platinum trophy to your collection!

Blue enemy upscale-245262160018212
Defeat a blue enemy

This trophy will be earned after you have successfully defeated a blue enemy ship.

Upon starting the story mode you will soon come to your first group of enemies, which happens to be blue ships. You can only defeat blue enemy ships while you are controlling the red ship. You can change the color of you ship between red/blue by pressing the button at any time.

Once you are controlling the red ship, simply shoot at any blue enemy ship by pressing or holding the button. The enemy ships at the start of the level will die in one hit, so simply shoot at them one time to destroy the ship. Once a blue enemy ship has been destroyed, you will unlock this trophy.

Red enemy upscale-245262160018212
Defeat a Red enemy

This trophy will be earned after you have successfully defeated a red enemy ship.

If you are playing the story mode you will be able to unlock this trophy midway through the first chapter. Most of the enemy ships will be blue, but you will eventually come to a location in which there is a string of blue enemies that will come in a string of 6 in 4 single file lines. (The same location I suggest you get your Gold Nyagu Terminator trophy)

Once you reach the 6th enemy of the 4th row (the row all the way to the right of your screen) you will notice that is a red enemy. In order to defeat a red enemy ship, you must first be controlling the blue ship. You can switch the ship that your are controlling at enemy time by pressing the button. Once you are controlling the blue ship, simply shoot at the red enemy ship by pressing or holding the button.

If you happen to miss the ship here, there are more red enemy ships later throughout the mission that are easier to hit. Once you have successfully destroyed a red enemy ship, you will unlock this trophy.

Gunship Gold
Destroy a Gunship enemy

This trophy is earned after you have successfully defeated a Gunship enemy.

Gunship enemies act as mini bosses in this game. If playing through the story mode you will face two Gunship enemies throughout this level. You will face a blue gunship halfway through level one, and a red one at the very end. Upon destroying the blue one you will unlock this trophy.

Gunship enemies have two phases that you will need to get through to defeat them. During there first phase they will have two laser beams coming out from beneath them while they travel from left to right on your screen. You will have to dodge their lasers until they are done firing. (Going all the way to one side of the screen will work) Once they are done firing, you will now have to destroy their left and right laser cannons respectively.

During the second phase they will only have one laser beam, and you can attack any point of the ship to damage it. You can see the gunships health to the left of your screen. Once you have fully depleted the enemy gunships health, it will be destroyed an you will unlock this trophy. Keep in mind that you will also have to take care of other enemy ships that spawn in during this fight. You will also need to be the red ship before being able to damage the blue enemy gunship. You can switch between the blue and red ship by pressing .

If you manage to get a Tesla Shock ability by the time you reach a gunship (which is done by absorbing enemy bullets) you can activate it here by pressing the button. This will easily take out more than half of the enemy gunship’s health, making this fight that much easier. You will know if you have a Tesla Shock by looking in the bottom right of your screen at the meter there. Once it is full, you can activate it. Upon using your first Tesla Shock you will also unlock the Gold Tesla Shock trophy.

Once you have successfully defeated an enemy gunship, you will unlock this trophy.

Spaceship upscale-245262160018212
Destroy 10 Spaceship enemies. Must be completed in one game session.

This trophy is unlocked after you have successfully defeated 10 spaceship enemies in one game session.

Spaceship enemies are the normal blue / red ships that will shoot bullets at you. You will get this trophy very early on into the first story mission as there are a couple hundred spaceship enemy ships in this level alone. Keep in mind that there are only red and blue enemy ships, and they can only be defeated by the ship of the opposite color. You can change your ship color at any time by pressing the button.

You also need to do this trophy in one game session, meaning without exiting the app. You can switch between different modes or story chapter as you please. As long as you do not exit the application at any point, you will be fine. If you do happen to exit the app, your progress will be set back to 0.

The normal spaceship enemies will die in one hit from your ship. The only thing you will have to worry about is dodging their bullets that they will occasionally shoot at you. The first 100+ enemies of level 1 will be strictly blue enemies so just use your red ship. After you have successfully defeated your 10th enemy spaceship, you will unlock this trophy.

Fighter Gold
Destroy 10 Fighter enemies. Must be completed in one game session.

This trophy will be unlocked after you have successfully destroyed 10 fighter enemies in one game session.

Fighter enemies are the ones that are smaller than the normal spaceships. They dont shoot any bullets at you but instead kamikaze their ship into yours. You need to be careful because they are quick, and can instantly destroy your ship if they come in contact with you. They normally come in groups but are also easily destroyed with one bullet from yourself.

You will get this trophy midway through the first story chapter if you are destroying all the fighter enemies that appear. All of the fighter enemies in this level will be blue which means you must be the red ship in order to destroy them. You can switch the color of your ship at any time by pressing the button. Simply destroy 10 fighter enemies, and you will unlock this trophy.

You also need to do this trophy in one game session, meaning without exiting the app. You can switch between different modes or story chapter as you please. As long as you do not exit the application at any point, you will be fine. If you do happen to exit the app, your progress will be set back to 0.

Armored Ship Gold
Destroy an Armored Ship enemy

This trophy will unlock after you have successfully destroyed an Armored Ship enemy.

This trophy is the reason why you must get midway through chapter 2 in order to achieve the platinum as this is the first point in the game you will face armored enemies. Armored enemies are the same as the normal spaceship enemies except they will have a piece of armor around them which will allow them to take an extra hit before being destroyed.

You will need to get about midway through the chapter before the first one will appear. They will shoot bullets at you just like the other spaceships so you will need to dodge those while shooting at the enemy. Keep in mind that you must be the opposite color of whichever color then enemy ship is to destroy it. You can switch the color of your ship at any time by pressing the button.

As stated, the armored enemies will take one more hit than the regular spaceship enemies so also keep that in mind as you play. After you have successfully defeated your first armored ship enemy, you will unlock this trophy.

Drop gathered Gold
Collect a drop

This trophy will be unlocked after successfully collecting a drop.

This will be one of the first trophies you unlock in the game, and you will likely unlock it without even noticing. Drops are formed after you have successfully defeated a group of enemies on the screen. After doing the above mentioned task, you will notice a bubble like orb form towards the middle of your screen. These are what are considered to be a drop. In order to collect it, all you need to do is fly your ship into it.

Upon completing the first story mission you will likely encounter 25+ drops in that mission alone. Luckily for you, you only need to collect one. It also does not matter what color your ship is when you collect it. Once you have successfully collected your first drop in the game, you will unlock this trophy.

Tesla Shock Gold
Use the Tesla Shock special skill

This trophy is unlocked after you have successfully used the Tesla Shock skill.

The Tesla Shock skill is a very powerful skill that will defeat practically any enemy ship that is on the screen. In order to get a Tesla Shock, you must first fill up the Tesla Shock meter that is located in the bottom right of your screen. This meter is filled up by absorbing enemy bullets. In order to absorb an enemy bullet you must change your ship to the color of incoming bullets which can be done by pressing the button. Blue ships will shoot blue bullets, while red ships will shoot red.

Once you are the same color as the incoming bullets, simply fly into them to absorb them. You will need to absorb around 10-15 bullets before the meter is completely filled up. Once you have successfully filled the Tesla Meter, you can activate your Tesla Shock at any time by pressing the button. Once the Tesla Shock has been activated, you will notice beams of light coming from your ship that will destroy anything in your way. I suggest saving your Tesla Shock for the Gunship enemies though for the specific purpose of this trophy, you can use it right away.

Once you have successfully used Tesla Shock for the first time, you will unlock this trophy.

Rookie
Defeat a total of 20 enemies. Must be completed in one game session.

This trophy will unlock after you have successfully defeated 20 enemy ships in a single game session.

This trophy will unlock very early on into the first story mission as all you have to do is destroy a total of 20 enemy ships combined between all of the enemy ship types. The normal space ships, fighter ships, armored ships, and gunships all add to the total amount needed for this trophy. Keep in mind that in order to defeat an enemy ship you must be the opposite color of said ship. To defeat a blue ship you must be red, and to defeat a red ship you must be blue. You can change the color of your ship at any time by pressing the button.

The first mission has hundreds of enemy ships and you only need to defeat 20 in order to get this trophy. You will also unlock the Silver Apprentice trophy after defeating 100 enemy ships, and the Gold Hero trophy after defeating 500 enemies. You also need to do this trophy in one game session, meaning without exiting the app. You can switch between different modes or story chapters as you please. As long as you do not exit the application at any point, you will be fine. If you do happen to exit the app, your progress will be set back to 0.

After you have successfully destroyed a combined total of 20 enemy ships you will unlock this trophy.

Hero Gold
Defeat a total of 500 enemies. Must be completed in one game session.

This trophy will unlock after you have successfully defeated 500 enemy ships in a single game session.

There is a good chance this will be one of the last trophies you get before the platinum. If you still need to clean up any ships you can do so by continuing to play on after defeating an armored ship in mission 2, or replaying chapter 1 to get easier ships. You will have to destroy a total of 500 enemy ships combined between all of the enemy ship types. The normal space ships, fighter ships, armored ships, and gunships all add to the total amount needed for this trophy. Keep in mind that in order to defeat an enemy ship you must be the opposite color of said ship. To defeat a blue ship you must be red, and to defeat a red ship you must be blue. You can change the color of your ship at any time by pressing the button.

The first mission has hundreds of enemy ships and by the time you destroy an armored ship in mission 2, you should be very close to getting this trophy if you have not already achieved it. You only need to defeat 500 enemy ships in order to get this trophy. You also need to do this trophy in one game session, meaning without exiting the app. You can switch between different modes or story chapters as you please. As long as you do not exit the application at any point, you will be fine. If you do happen to exit the app, your progress will be set back to 0. Also keep in mind that if you happen to lose all your health, all ships destroyed prior to dying will still count.

After you have successfully destroyed a combined total of 500 enemy ships you will unlock this trophy.

Bullet Absorber upscale-245262160018212
Absorb a total of 10 bullets. Must be completed in one game session.

This trophy is earned after you have successfully absorbed a total of 10 enemy bullets.

You absorb bullets by changing the color of your ship to the same color as the enemy ship / their bullets. You can change the color of your ship at any time by pressing the button. Blue ships will shoot blue bullets while red ships will shoot red. To absorb a bullet simply change your ship to the same color as the bullet and then run your ship into the bullet. If done correctly, you will absorb the bullet and add to your Tesla Shock meter in the bottom right of your screen.

You only need to absorb a total of 10 enemy bullets before getting this trophy, and you will need a total of 100 before getting the Gold Bullet Eater trophy. You also need to do this trophy in one game session, meaning without exiting the app. You can switch between different modes or story chapters as you please. As long as you do not exit the application at any point, you will be fine. If you do happen to exit the app, your progress will be set back to 0. Also keep in mind that if you happen to lose all your health, all bullets absorbed prior to dying will still count.

Absorbing bullets is not necessary or required to beat the missions, so you will need to actually try for this one. After successfully absorbing 10 of them you will unlock this trophy.

Die for the first time

This trophy is unlocked after you have died for the first time.

This trophy will likely unlock naturally and if not, id be very impressed. There are a few ways you can die in this game. You can die from getting trapped behind a barrier, getting hit by 3 bullets, or coming in contact with an enemy ship. You have 3 ships for each turn you have and each ship you lose will count as 1 death. To make this trophy more clear, you must lose 1 ship for the first time. You will also need to lose a total of 10 ships to get the Gold Don’t give up trophy.

After you have “successfully” lost your first ship you will unlock this trophy.

Nyagu Killer upscale-245262160018212
Achieve a 10-hit combo

This trophy is earned after you successfully achieve a 10-hit combo.

A combo is achieved when you destroy enemy gunships in a quick succession. You can view the combo counter in the top left of your screen as you are destroying ships. When destroying ships you will start to see the counter grow. The counter will reset back to 0 if you take damage, die, or take too long to destroy another enemy after the last one.

This trophy will likely be unlocked without you even noticing, but you will also need to get a 20-hit combo to unlock the Gold Nyagu Terminator trophy. Just play the game as you would normally and this trophy will likely unlock. It helps if you just hold the button to shoot instead of just pressing it. This allows you to shoot as fast as possible and since there is no overheating it does not matter if you simply hold the shoot button as you play. This will help you maintain your combo just in case you miss a shot or two.

You will likely get this trophy early on during the first story mission. After you have successfully achieved a 10-hit combo, you will unlock this trophy.

Nyagu Terminator Gold
Achieve a 20-hit combo

This trophy is earned after you successfully achieve a 20-hit combo.

A combo is achieved when you destroy enemy gunships in a quick succession. You can view the combo counter in the top left of your screen as you are destroying ships. When destroying ships you will start to see the counter grow. The counter will reset back to 0 if you take damage, die, or take too long to destroy another enemy after the last one.

There is a great spot midway through the first chapter where you can get this trophy. You will come to a point where there are 24 enemies that you can easily get this trophy on. There will be 4 rows of 6 enemies going from the left of your screen to the right. 23 of these enemies will be blue, while the final enemy in the final row on the right will be red. If you destroy all the enemy ships here, that red ship wont be needed anyways due to the fact you only need a 20 hit combo for the trophy.

Simply start on the left of your screen and hold the button to continuously shoot at the ships. Be sure that you are the red ship so you can destroy them. Slowly make your way from the left of your screen to the right while destroying all the ships as you go. If done correctly you will have over a 20-hit combo by the time you finish. If you happen to mess up just restart the level and try again as it does not take long to get to this point in the level.

After you have successfully achieved a 20-hit combo, you will unlock this trophy.
