This is another game that is notable for its high difficulty level. The frantic pace doesn't help make it any easier.

Fly your ship towards some planetoids, and focus your fire on them. Putting enough shots into a planetoid will cause it to shake, and small glowing pixels (the game calls them crystals) will appear. You need to grab these crystals, as they are converted to Sinibombs, which are essential to destroying Sinistar. If you shoot the planetoids too much, they'll explode.

Red Workers and gray Warriors are always flying around you at all times. Workers are harmless, but Warriors will shoot at you. I suggest killing them whenever they appear. if possible. You can ram into them without effect, so don't worry about that.

Sinistar takes 20 pieces to form, but only has 13 that you need to destroy. When you hear him say "Beware, I Live!", that means he's coming for you, so make sure you've harvested at least 13 Sinibombs. I'd aim to have as many as possible so you don't have to rely on pinpoint accuracy.

Watch the radar at the top of the screen so you're aware when Sinistar is close to you. He's much faster than you, so all you can do is out maneuver him. When he's on screen, drop your Sinibombs with B. They'll automatically home in on Sinistar as long as he's on the screen. If the message "Sinibomb Intercepted" appears, that means it missed the target.

Hit him 13 times and the achievement will unlock. You can (and will likely) lose lives when going for this, but as long as you destroy Sinistar before you run out, you're good.
