100 Saucer Achievement Not Rewarding [Obtained]
I've legitametally aquired every other achievement and continued to play over the past months and am extremely doubtful I have not destroyed at least a hundred saucers a couple times over, and yet this achievement alludes me.

I did play quite a bit offline and even before the planet achievements were fixed, so I wonder if that could be a reason, but I hope there is some fix or special way to finally get this award to pop. I do enjoy the game very much, but finally having 100% on it would be nice.

EDIT: I have since obtained this achievement. It took an entire playthrough and a couple game+ levels without dying to get it.

hmm it does only register the saucer achievement in a single playthrough - ie. not from checkpoints - but I'll investigate just to be sure.

Ah, I was not aware of that. Is it the only one that awards on a single playthrough? I'm still skeptical I never managed to do that at least once, but now that I know I can at least try it again.

And I assume it only counts the saucers that drop items, not the regular enemies nor the bonus saucers?

Thank you for the response, btw. Puppygames rocks!

Yes, only the "main" saucers that drop items. They all only award on a single playthrough but of course the others are somewhat easier to acheive.

I see. It's a possibility I could be wrong. I played all the way to the alien homeworld and counted around 60 saucers downed before I ate some explosions, so my estimation on how well I've done is probably off. Especially since now I know it has to be one playthrough.

I'll go back to pewpewing some more and get to 100 for sure before I'll proclaim it's truly broken. Thank you very much for the imput.

I dont get it why you nust do it in single playthrough? Why not cumulative?

Because then it's not really an achievement, just a trivial milestone.

Finally. Got this. Thank you for the amazing game.

Quick question. I get this, I won't get achievement for all those tries cumulative but best saved checkpoints counts in total, right? Otherwise the achievement description should have end like "in a single run" or something.

I personally started over when I died, so I unfortunately can't say for certain, but I think it's fair to assume "a single playthrough" means not dying and using a saved checkpoint.

It did take me beating the game and continuing into game+ for a couple levels before I destroyed enough saucers to achieve it, just for reference.

Yeah, you're right, just realized that when I beat the Titan, I were getting those achievements (the little one so far) while playing first planets again with the upgraded tank/ship/whatever =) I guess it's the easiest way. Not like I was searching for one.

if you start from a checkpoint you start at zero, some are easier/faster to start from a good saturn or titan checkpoint, but the saucers yea easier from the beginnning since they are slower
