Shyzuto 10 Aug 2015 10:54
I can't unlock Power Station IV, i don't know why :(
Ivo 19 Dec 2016 21:07
Nice one, thanks!
Ivo 20 Dec 2016 08:53
Wouldn't mind for all series to have achievements, though. Now I cannot continue the trilogy on GEN, because of that : D
Thornysmooth 18 May 2017 03:32
Id like achievements that arent so simple... is it possible to male achievements like beat map 1 eithiut using hydras or with taking no damage or dont destroy any extra enemies or speedrun?
mentifisto 18 Jun 2017 04:05
Male achievements? There's female ones too?

Mastered!

Thanks for the honest achievements set

Achievement 'Power Station IV' is incorrectly described. It should be 'Destroy the Power Station in the campaign Nuclear Storm'
AntonioFNN 25 Sep 2021 06:01
It worked very well and covered all the missions. But in a future update they could put something like "save all civilians", "complete the level without dying", "save the copilot", "reach x score number", etc.

200% SODOMIZED SET!! #7
raspgalax 14 Feb 2023 20:11
I'm thinking that it's really difficult to program many more achievements than are here now. Each mission win flag is an achievement. All you could really do is an achievement for getting the bad ending, and for rescuing the co-pilot I'd think.

Awesome, loved this game as a kid, never got to play the others in the series, this'll be fun. I love this site

Dessert Strike!

And Mastered! Set seems to be purely progression based, sadly. If its ever considered for revision in addition the suggestions from AntonioFNN and Rasgalax there are also members of EANN (real subtle, there, EA...) in mission 3, you can airlift them to a TV station and this nets you a neat score bonus in addition to the usual armour bonus you get from offloading passengers. The only other things I could think of would be Destroying a Crotale in a danger zone without dying. Just... PLEASE don't do the flying retrograde pish they've done for Jungle strike, That is just NOT fun. XD
