Pilot - Launch a spacecraft
Story related, not missable.

Explorer - Discover all celestial objects.
Story related, not missable.

Hero - Overcome your opponent and gain freedom.
Story related, not missable. Beat the game.

Wanderer - Explore your boundaries.
Keep traveling in one direction in space until you hit a barrier.

Why Walk When You Can Fly? - Land on the same planet four times in succession.
Straightforward, just take off and immediately land again.

Academic - Show 30 items to Perseus.
I believe these have to be unique items, I did not test the same item 30 times. There are ~40 items in the game so this achievement is very missable. Make a point of showing every item to Perseus the instant you get or modify it.

Dependable - Help out and make friends.
I am not absolutely certain what the unlock conditions are, I unlocked it by talking to Mycendus after giving him the tonic. I would suggest talking to every NPC you can, before and after helping them.

Tenacious - Follow your hunter instincts.
After chasing the crow on Clades to the right, chase it back left.

Time Traveler - Manipulate time.
Acquire and combine all the mysterious parts(see walkthrough).

??? - ???
In the place where you get the mysterious device. Keep using the light switch.

Stubborn - When all else fails, keep on trying.
When attempting to enter EVM-8000, input the wrong code ~10 times.

Agility Champion - Jump 100 times.
Easily done on 311 Zarathustra, just keep jumping on the bellows.

Bullseye - Complete the game without ever missing a hit, throw, catch or shot.
I was able to get this by loading an old save and beating the boss without missing.
I suspect you need to do all the following in the first try, would recommend quick saving before doing them:
- Catching the cork on Tyrus
- Shooting the scarecrow on Clades
- Beating the final boss
If anyone has more information on this, please share!

Modern Major General - Assume command over Shuttle's Bane.
When Perseus is abducted, use the bicorne on the control panel.
Walkthrough
- This guide assumes you have following enabled and will specfically mention when your characters need to be split up.

- All commands are for Professor Gagayev(the monkey) unless they are bark or talk, in which case Perseus(the dog) should be used.

Part 2: Exploring
The next objective is finding all of the planets and getting most of the needed items.

Finnally got it! So you actually need to walk in to the black. I was waiting for something to light up.
jkobewka Dec 26, 2017 @ 9:00pm 
I really can't find it... I like this game but I don't like having to click randomly...

jkobewka Dec 26, 2017 @ 8:57pm 
This is not the same enternce as when I go down after the lazer blast?

Thanks by the way

You go down inside the planet. Search the ground for clickable areas.

"When you reach the area with the vases, go down. Use something dangly, then use the pot to get the strange device. Combining this with the other two strange items makes it into a time machine. Leave and continue left."



Go down??? Where? I am confused by this...

Yes, Dependable is pretty clearly tied to interacting with NPCs. Possibly just a certain number of interactions.
Mr. Lambert Sep 20, 2017 @ 7:46pm 
I got Dependable before making the tonic or talking to the mushroom again. I got it after talking to the mouse on the moon planet after I'd given her the gum. Perseus said, "Now she can get back to her research," and the achievement unlocked.

Nice guide to the first part. One thing I found helped a bit and you don't have to mess so much with timing, is with your guys on either side of the scarecrow, have GaGayev selected and put them back into follow mode. Perseus will try to get back to the monkey and while he is doing that you can load the baseball into the sling easier.
