Introduction:

4 Elements HD on the PS3 is a port of 4 Elements by Playrix Entertainment. It has been improved over the regular version with HD resolution and can be played with both the Dualshock 3 or the PlayStation® Move controller. You're tasked with finding 3 or more pieces of each color, that are all touching each other, so you can select one and then move through all others to make them disappear.


Walkthrough

Before starting the game, read the following information on power-ups (which you'll slowly unlock as you finish the levels) and tile types you run into so you can save some time:

Power-Ups:

Spade: This can be used to clear any tile.
Bomb: Will explode and remove a host of pieces from the game field.
Swap: You can swap two pieces on the game field (they don't need to be next to each other at all.)
Shuffle: Can be used to shuffle around all the pieces on the game field so you can take a new approach to your advances.

Tile Types and Objects:

Stone: Can't make chains of matching pieces with it or through it.
Ice: To break it, make a chain of matching pieces through it.
Stone Slab: It can only be removed when hit by a flaming arrow.
Multi-Level Ground: You have to remove the tiles several times to clear it (2 or more times).
Flaming Arrows: They are activated as soon as the energy reaches them, clearing all pieces in their way. They can shoot out 1, 2, or 8 arrows depending on the type of mechanism that is reached by the energy.


Step 1: Complete the first tutorial level


Easy as that. This will help you better understand how the game works and will also get Conquering the Earth out of the way.

Step 2: Unlock And Complete All Levels

You'll unlock levels one at a time, one after the other, without much trouble. While doing this you'll get Conquering the Fire, Conquering the Sky, Conquering the Deep, Cornerstone, Chainmaker, Icebreaker and Master of Elements.

Step 3: Clean Up


You'll only be missing a couple of trophies, and they're all cumulative ones that should have unlocked by the time you've completed the last level, but they COULD still require 30-40 minutes of extra work. They are Boom!, KABOOM!!!, Digger, Bomber, Swapper, Shuffler, Home Sweet Home and Archmage. The ones for using power-ups 10 times SHOULD have unlocked already as it would take you longer to finish the game without using them often.

4 Elements HD Trophy Guide

Conquering the Earth
Complete the first Earth level

Story Related, Can't be missed. This is the first trophy you'll get in the game.


Conquering the Fire
Complete the first Fire level

Story Related, Can't be missed. You'll get it when you complete level 17, which is the first Fire level.


Conquering the Sky
Complete the first Air level

Story Related, Can't be missed. You'll get it when you complete level 33, which is the first Air level.


Conquering the Deep
Complete the first Water level

Story Related, Can't be missed. You'll get it when you complete level 49, which is the first Water level.


Cornerstone
Buy any castle upgrade

Story Related, Can't be missed. The game shows you how to buy a castle upgrade, and you must do so to progress.


Boom!
Create a chain of 20 or more pieces

See KABOOM!!


KABOOM!!!
Create a chain of 30 or more pieces

As the trophy explains, you must create a chain of 30 of more pieces. This means that all 30+ pieces must be touching each other so you can link them all. Once you have 30+ pieces of the same color all lined up and next to each other, one after the other... start your chain and make a single non-stop line that goes through all of them up till piece #30 (at least) and then let go of the button so they all explode and both Boom! and KABOOM!! can unlock. This can be done on any level, but I found it easier to do on level 2. You might also want to try it on a higher level so you can use the Swap power up to set up pieces properly.


Digger
Use the Spade power-up 10 times

See Shuffler


Bomber
Use the Bomb power-up 10 times


See Shuffler


Swapper
Use the Swap power-up 10 times


See Shuffler


Shuffler
Use the Shuffle power-up 10 times

Hard to miss since you're almost required to use all power ups to progress. Just make sure to use each power-up 10 times. This can be done on different levels, a bit at a time, as the total is cumulative over the whole game for each trophy to unlock.


Chainmaker
Create 1000 chains of 5 or more pieces

Comes naturally from playing the game. You'll want to get as many 5+ chains as possible to get lots of points to purchase castle upgrades. This is cumulative across all levels. I got it on level 36, but your mileage may vary.


Icebreaker
Destroy 1500 frozen pieces

Comes naturally from playing the game as you'll run into A LOT of frozen pieces. Got it on level 44 but your mileage may vary.


Master of Elements
Complete all levels of the game

Will unlock once you've completed level 64 (which is the last level in the game).


Home Sweet Home
Buy all castle upgrades

Glitched, but in a good way. The trophy will actually unlock when you buy the second to last upgrade for your castle. You'll have enough points for it at around level 52-54.


Archmage
Reach a total score of 200000

Comes naturally from playing the game. Got it on level 52 but your mileage may vary.

Nice guide Eden it was good that you noted when you got certain trophies like chainmaker & archmage as that limits the uncertainty for the rest of us. This game reminds me o Bejewelled2

Nice guide, i just got 100%. Not that anything was hard but it's nice to know what I'm getting into ahead of time. I got Kaboom first try on level 14 so I had the Swap powerup.
Thanks
