The Cheat Menu for this game offers both Infinite Time and Infinite Lives, so make sure to turn them on before starting the game. Start the game, and you’ll unlock:

Strange New Worlds

Lunar Jetman: Play the game for the first time.

Strange New Worlds

To complete this game, you’re pretty much going to have to make liberal use of the Rewind feature (hold cn_LT). The object of the game is to blow up alien bases using the bombs you are given. The simplest method is to pick the bomb up (cn_B) and place it in the back of the truck. Get in the truck (cn_Y) and drive forwards until you reach the alien base.

Along the way, there will be holes in the floor which stop the truck from moving forwards. To bypass these, grab a platform from the truck by pressing cn_B and place the platform in the hole. You can then get back in the truck and continue on. You can also shoot your gun with cn_A. Stay in your truck as much as possible, and only get out when it’s safe.

While you are in the truck, you are invulnerable to anything outside it. The alien base looks like a white silo with yellow missiles rotating on top of it. Once you get near, get out of the truck, pick up the bomb, and drop it on top of the base. With the base destroyed, another bomb will spawn behind the truck.

Each time you blow up an alien base, you start a new level. Round about level 4, an enemy turns up that basically stays above you and sweeps up and down the screen. This guy is very frustrating, so keep your finger ready to Rewind. If you destroy it, you only get a few seconds of peace before the next one turns up. It’s lucky we have Infinite Time on, or this would be pretty damn difficult...

Around about level 5, you’ll unlock:

Unbridled Curiosity

Lunar Jetman: Over time, travel 250 Moon Units in the Hyperglide Moon Rover.

Unbridled Curiosity

Once you get to level 6, you’re basically playing the last 5 levels again. As such, all the platforms you’ve placed previously will still be there for you now. This makes the next 5 levels that little bit easier. It won’t get any more fun, though.

Once you reach level 10, wait about 10 seconds, and you will unlock:

Space Cowboy

Lunar Jetman: Reach Level 10.

Now all you need to do is get out of your truck and continue shooting everything on screen. If you want to make it really easy, keep driving until you find a cannon on the floor (you’ll have past one a couple of times – there’s one before the very first base if you start a new game), mount it to your truck, and fire at enemies from inside.

Once you defeat 500 enemies (doesn’t need to be in one go), you will unlock:

We Were The Invaders

Lunar Jetman: Defeat 500 enemies over time.

We Were The Invaders

And once you reach 200,000 total points (doesn’t need to be in one go), you will unlock:

No Bug-Eyed Monsters

And now it’s time to move on to the Snapshots. The first Snapshot requires you to score 3000 points in 60 seconds without leaving your truck. Once you’ve completed this, you will unlock:

The Shoulder of Orion

Complete a Lunar Jetman snapshot.

The Shoulder of Orion
1 guideOffline Game Mode - These achievements require play in game modes that do not necessitate a connection to any online services.Single Player - These achievements can be obtained by a single player.

The second Snapshot requires you to travel 15m in your truck by plugging the holes in the floor. There are no enemies in this Snapshot, so it’s incredibly simple.

The third Snapshot requires you to catch up with and shoot down the missile fired from the alien base. Again, this is simple. Just fly along behind the missile continuously shooting it. It should take about 25 seconds of constant shooting to destroy it.

The fourth Snapshot requires you to destroy the alien base and then quickly fly back to your truck without dying. Once you start, quickly grab your truck, and park it to the right of the transporter. Press cn_Y to use the teleporter and grab the bomb. Now fly to the left to find the alien base. Blow it up, and continue left to return to your truck.

The fifth Snapshot requires you to score 10,000 points in 120 seconds. There’s no easy way to do this. Just stay by your truck to refuel when you can and fly around shooting everything you can - alternatively, there's an alien base nearby that's worth a large percentage of your needed points and a turret you can place on your truck, but this is obviously just as dangerous. Once you complete this, you will unlock:

Over the Moon

Complete all of the Lunar Jetman snapshots.

Over the Moon
