So I finished off Super Stardust HD (which I got free after PSN went down) and had a great time with it. It also left me with a gaming memory I wonít soon forget.
After beating the game, I decided to go back and go for the ďGet 20 BombsĒ silver trophy. I figured I was getting better at the game and I should get it at the end of the 3rd world (which was bad math by me, it takes until the 4th world to collect 20 bombs). Anyways, I got the trophy fairly easily and decided to keep playing to set a new high score, because now I had 20 bombs and should be able to survive a while and build up a good multiplier. So I started bombing and making my way through the 4th world with no problems. Suddenly my chain was up to 7x and then 8x! (this was the highest I had ever had it, and there is a gold trophy for getting a 10x chain that I thought would be totally unattainable for me because I'm not great at these types of games).
Of course, after realizing how close I was to 10x, the pressure started to hit. I felt myself make a couple bad decisions right away, which included wasting a couple bombs and losing my shield.
However, thanks to a couple extra bombs, a new shield power up, an excellent strategy and performance against the World 4 boss, and some careful maneuvering when getting the home stretch of 10x, I GOT IT! I was extatic!
Now one gold trophy may not sound like much (and it isnít), but the sense of accomplishment of doing something I didnít think I could do was a thousand times better! Iím sure we all have a few games that we remember overcoming something we never thought possible, and I won't soon forget my Super Stardust HD run!
