Introduction:

Welcome to the Space Overlords Trophy Guide!
“Erupting from the shackles of your prison, you are an Overlord, an ancient life form of immeasurable power who seeks revenge against the evil Kesedihan. Wipe out entire planetary forces, destroy cities and fight bosses as you seek to eliminate all existence of Kesedihan’s kin from the universe”
Space Overlords was a free PS+ game in July 2018, so you may already own this.

Roadmap:

Your primary objective during this is to destroy all buildings on the Planet, whilst avoiding enemy fire. The game has 7 Galaxies, with 8 Planets in that you will need to beat. Each Planet represents it’s own challenges with 9 different gameplay options. The game will seem impossibly hard to begin with but with patience and practice, it will become easier. Be prepared to spend more time on loading screens than in actual gameplay during the grind.

Step 1: Create 8 Custom Planets in the Level Editor
During this step you want to create 4 very specific planets. The remaining 4 do not matter how they are created. These Planets will be used once you have completed the Story Mode to Grind out later if needed.

Go “Level Editor” => “Create new planet”. Select Planet Type, Add Atmosphere / Add Planet Lands / Add Planet Oceans and once this is done hit , then select Add Buildings, Add Start Point.
To speed things up later find a place on your planet that has a large chunk of land (You can move with the and zoom in/out with /. After your start point has been placed, you will need to Add Buildings. Select “Civilian Building 1” (as it is the weakest) but before you start populating, be sure to place 1 building away from your start point (this will become relevant for Gold OVERDRIVE OVERLORD). Be sure to move back to your start point before placing the remaining buildings. These will need to be in close proximity to save time later. Once you have 100% populated your planet hit twice, then select “Free Rampage” from Select Level Type and hit  to save.

You want to repeat these steps for the next 3 Planets, however you want to change between Add Building & Add Population. You will need to create further different Planets that are 100% populated with the following buildings:

“Mega City 1” – Located in Add Buildings
“Comm Station 1” – Located in Add Population
“Power Plant 1” – Located in Add Population
(Note – You must back all the way out once you have saved your planet to create a new one)

Once you have created your first 4 Planets you will need to create 4 more of any variation. You do not need to populate them, nor do you have to change anything. I created 4 planets (Forest / Forest / Forest / Forest), and saved. After you have saved your final Planet don’t back out out of the Editor, but instead go back into Select Level Type and change the Gameplay Type. Although you will not play them, you will need make a save with all 9 different Level Types for Gold CHALLENGE CREATOR.

You’ll be earning these trophies:
Bronze PLANET CREATOR
Silver GALAXY CREATOR
Gold CHALLENGE CREATOR

Step 2: Play Story Mode & Find Collectibles
Play through the 7 different Galaxy’s beating the challenges in all 8 different Planets. Each Planet has it’s own different challenges as you play through the 9 different Gameplay Types. Be sure to read the text that appears at the start of the level to know your objectives and what is required. If you are struggling on a level you can back out and play your created Planets to build up your special’s that can be used via the . Once you have built these up and they are available to you go back into the level and try again. Be sure to select continue if you do this, as the Story Mode defaults to New Game each time you enter it. You also do not have to play the Tutorial or watch the cut scenes (these can be skipped by pressing ).

Try to avoid being damaged and take your time. You should have enough time to complete the level unless you are playing a level that has limited time. Try out the different Overlords and stick with the one that suits you best. You will need to complete a Planet with all four for Gold OVERLORD MASTER so it’s worth trying them out on the first few Planets.

You should use this step to also locate the 4 in-game collectibles.

During this step you’ll earn these trophies
Bronze OUR OWN LITTLE WORLD
Silver URBAN DEMOLISHER
Bronze INITIATE
Silver LITTLE LORD
Silver CHAPTER 1 CONQUERED
Silver CHAPTER 2 CONQUERED
Silver CHAPTER 3 CONQUERED
Silver CHAPTER 4 CONQUERED
Silver CHAPTER 5 CONQUERED
Silver CHAPTER 6 CONQUERED
Gold CHAPTER 7 CONQUERED
Gold OVERLORD MASTER
Silver ULTIMATE OVERLORD
Bronze INPATI HUNTER
Gold ULTIMATE GATHERING

Step 3: Clean Up
Use this step to clean up the remaining trophies. If you have not destroyed enough of each building for the specific trophy related ones, then refer to the created Planets in Step One of the Roadmap. If you have missed any of the collectibles, then select their relevant Planet and replay. Grind out Gold OVERDRIVE OVERLORD. This can be done on Story Mode planets, however you will find it quicker to replay your first created planet.

During this step you’ll earn the following trophies:
Silver CITY RAVAGER
Silver COMM IS DOWN
Silver LOW OF POWER
Silver RISING LORD
Gold OVERLORD

Gold OVERDRIVE OVERLORD
40-platinum SPACE OVERLORD

OVERDRIVE OVERLORDGold
Destroy 250000 buildings.

Destroy 250,000 buildings of any type and you will get the trophy but you will have to grind this out, since you won’t have anywhere near this amount after finishing the story. This will most probably be the last trophy you unlock before the 40-platinum. There is no in-game counter but every “building” you destroy, counts towards this goal. Each time you repeat a stage during the Story Mode and destroy buildings you will work towards this trophy. This grind is best done outside of Story Mode on the very first Planet you created. It was created this way to make the grind as quick as possible. In order to play your created Planet, select “My Planets” (Multiplayer on the PS4) from the Main Menu and pick which Overlord you want to use. Now move across to My Galaxy and select your first Planet. Once you have destroyed all the buildings that are clustered together (you will want to leave the one building that you separated during Step 1 of the Roadmap), press  then “Restart Planet”. Rinse and Repeat.

You can also use created Planets to obtain Silver CITY RAVAGER, Silver COMM IS DOWN & Silver LOW OF POWER by replaying the Planet relevant to the building you need to destroy.

OUR OWN LITTLE WORLD
Conquer your first planet.

To conquer a planet, you need to destroy everything that’s on it. You should get this within the first couple of planets you play on but if you don’t, then it can also be obtained on your own Created Planet.

CHAPTER 7 CONQUEREDGold
Complete Chapter 7 in Story Mode.

Each Chapter is made by a Galaxy which has 7 Planets within that you need to complete the objective on. The objectives cover all 9 game modes, thus you will face a different challenge on each on Planet.

Primarily your goal is to destroy all the “Buildings” on the planet (You do not have to destroy the turrets or scenery). There is a counter on the left of the screen which shows how many buildings destroyed/remaining and the Buildings will have a Blue Light streaking out of them when you get close to destroying them all. Towards the end of the third Galaxy you will also start to be joined on the Planet by an opposing Ghost Overlord. There is still no need to kill (although you can) thus you need to stick to your primary objective of destroying all buildings.

You will however encounter some Planets that do not require you to destroy buildings. “Meteor Showers” can be finished by destroying the buildings as per normal; alternatively you can destroy the Sanctuaries to stop the “Meteor” and the level will end. “Defend the obelisc” requires you to protect the obelisc from enemy attack. You will pass this level once the timer runs out, if the obelisc is still intact. “Death Match” planets require you to destroy the Enemy Overlord; however this is not necessary until the last Galaxy. Prior to the Last Galaxy, you only come across Enemy Overlords on Planets that have an obelisc so simply destroy it to defeat the Overlord but there is no need to worry about the buildings. See Gold ULTIMATE GATHERING for a list of “Overlord Death Match” levels that have obeliscs.

Some of these planets can be annoying but with perseverance, you will be able to pass them. During the Story Mode, you will become accustomed to the 4 Power Ups that can assist you in various way on each Planet. The 4 Power Ups become available as you build combos and destroy and can be selected via the . You may also find that adjusting your camera angle via the  may help with some levels.

The final boss “Kesedihan” is completely different to any other level played. He is hovering above the planet shooting large crystals at you. The key here is to shoot the smaller crystals after they are dropped on the Planet to build up to your RED power up. Once you have this the larger crystal will stick to the planet enabling you to shoot it. I found that only the  button worked for me on the final level. I also needed to readjust myself and attack from the sides in order to be able to shoot the the crystals (This was not the relevant to the PS4 version). Once you have done this a couple of times you will also be joined on the Planet by firstly the Ghost Overlord, then one of the Boss Overlords you met earlier in the game. These will not pose much threat. Just avoid their fire and kill them if you feel you need too.

OVERLORD MASTERGold
Complete Story Mode with all the Overlords.

POTENTIALLY MISSABLE

The description for this trophy is misleading because you do not have to complete the game four times, just ensure you have used each Overlord at least once whilst playing through the main story.

To ensure you do not miss this trophy, replay and finish the Planets listed in Gold ULTIMATE GATHERING with all four Overlords during your initial playthrough. When you unlock the Planets featuring collectibles, replay and beat with each Overlord before moving on. This will ensure you have used each Overlord before finishing the last Planet.

ULTIMATE OVERLORDupscale-245262160018212
Find all 4 pieces of ultimate armor and unlock your true potential.

This will unlock when you destroy all four obeliscs with one Overlord. See Gold ULTIMATE GATHERING for more details.

INPATI HUNTER
Find and destroy an obelisc containing a piece of the ultimate armor for any overlord.

This will unlock when you destroy your first obelisc. See Gold ULTIMATE GATHERING for more details.

ULTIMATE GATHERINGGold
Unlock the ultimate overlord form with the 4 main characters of the game.

This is similar to Gold ULTIMATE OVERLORD but you will need destroy all 4 obeliscs to access the collectibles with each Overlord. The obeliscs are located on the following Planets and glow brightly when you are hitting them but take more hits than anything else in the game to destroy. For a visual reference, they can be seen in the background of the start menu.

Alpha Nemesis (Galaxy 2) – Icegard (Planet 8) – To beat the level you do not need to destroy the enemy or buildings. Simply destroy the obelisc and the level will end.

Aurigae Galaxy (Galaxy 4) – Erara (Planet 8) – During this battle the Obelisc may be inside a shield. Destroy the power to the shield by following the blue lines out from it to the power boxes. Once they are destroyed the shield will be gone and you can access the obelisc. The level will end once you destroy the obelisc.

Borythenis (Galaxy 5) – Arduk (Planet 8) – To beat the level you do not need to destroy the enemy or buildings. Simply destroy the obelisc and the level will end.

Miriandynus (Galaxy 6) – Gunung (Planet 8) – You will be joined my a worm type thing on this level, as well as the Overlord and Ghost Overlord. To beat the level you do not need to destroy the enemies or buildings. Simply destroy the obelisc and the level will end.

Once you have destroyed the obelisc the level will end. Continue and you will be notified that you have obtained a piece of armor. Press  to collect, then repeat all four levels with all four Overlords. You can miss obtaining the armor if you kill the Enemy Overlord, or destroy all the buildings before destroying the obelisc. This will result in the armor not appearing when you are back on the Galaxy select screen. If this happens simply replay the Planet until you are sure you destroyed the obelisc and the armor shows up.

Unfortunately there is no way of knowing what piece of armor you have collected for what Overlord, thus I suggest you play each area with every Overlord, one after the other, before moving on.
