Welcome to the Zero Strain Trophy Guide!
Step 1: Beat the first 6 levels
This is all there really is to the games trophies. There is a boss every other level, and you only need to beat 3 of them. You’ll need to go back and complete previous levels with different ships to get a “Station Power Point”, after a few levels, but it’s quick and easy. After this step you’ll have almost all the trophies
You’ll be earning these trophies:
Step 2: Grind 1,000 kills
Depending what levels you replayed to get your 12 Power Station Points, you may have a few kills left to grind it. Just replay the very first level over and over again, as there’s lot of enemies in one run, and it’s a very short and easy level! After this step, you’ll have the platinum!
During this step you’ll earn these trophies:

Kill 1000 enemies
Getting this trophy requires you to kill 1,000 enemies. This is the only trophy that may be a grind. An easy place to get kills quick is the first level. There’s at least 100 per run! After you kill 1,000 enemies, this trophy is yours.
This boss is on the second level of the game. The boss doesn’t have many attacks. It will either slash at you with an arm, or slam it’s arms into the ground, destroying the land in front of it. If you stay behind it, and always use the special attacks, this fight will be over quick and painlessly. Refer to Eternity for a video on all the bosses.
Beat Hu Kora
You meet this boss on level 4. All this boss really does is shoot at you. When it starts being close to death, it will spawn some rings that spin around it, and damage you if you touch them. Luckily they don’t take too much damage, before they break. After the boss explodes, the trophy is yours! Refer to Eternity for a video on all the bosses.
The battle with this boss happens on level 6. Now this boss gets a little tough. The only reason for that, is because it constantly chases you down, while having projectiles spinning around it the whole time. So if it gets close, you can take a lot of damage fast, and be dead before you know it.
You can refer to the video below for a guide on all 3 bosses.
