Post Arkedo Series - 02 Swap! - Trophy Guide and Road Map


Road Map:

Overview:

- Estimated trophy difficulty: 8/10 Difficulty Poll
- Total Trophies (breakdown): 12 (1 , 4 , 7 )
- Offline Trophies (breakdown): 12 (1 , 4 , 7 )
- Online Trophies (breakdown): 0
- Approximate amount of time to 100%: 8-12 hours
- Minimum number of playthroughs needed: 3 (1 Castle Mode, 1 Challenge Mode and 1 game of arcade mode)
- Number of missable trophies: 0
- Glitched trophies: None
- Do cheat codes disable trophies?: No codes available for Arkedo Series - 02 Swap!

Introduction:

Arkedo Series 02 - Swap! is a fun retro game where you play as King Kat. First, you need to help King Kat get back to his castle, then you complete challenges with him. The game is a bit like Bejewelled, you have to match 4 or more of the same coloured blocks up horizontally or vertically.

Walkthrough:

Step 1: Credits
As soon as you load up the game you may as well earn a really easy ! Scroll through the credits and you will unlock Accredited Gamer

Step 2: Castle Mode
Complete all 5 chapters of Castle Mode to earn Claim your castle!. This also unlocks Challenge Mode.

Step 3: Arcade Mode
In Arcade Mode you need to get 40,000 points for Prince of my Castle, 60,000 points for King of my Castle, and 80,000 points for Emperor of my Castle.

Step 4: Challenge Mode
To unlock Challenge Mode, you need to complete Castle Mode. There are 16 challenges in Challenge Mode. You need to complete them all to unlock Unchallenged. Also, during Challenge Mode you will have to make a X4 combo and blast 10 blocks at once, which each have a trophy of their own. Therefore, if you don't get them on Steps 2 or 3, don't spend time in Arcade Mode for them because you will just have to do them again in Challenge Mode.

Step 5: Clean Up
Now, you will need to farm all the cumulative total trophies. Keep doing double deckers, blasting thunder blocks, freezing time, and collecting treasures (if you still need to).

Trophies

Claim your castle!
Achieve the Castle Mode

There are 5 chapters in Castle Mode:
  • A sunny meadow (Goal: level speed 5)
  • The gloomy village (Goal: level speed 7)
  • Sunset canyon (Goal: level speed 6)
  • The haunted swamp (Goal: level speed 8)
  • The Castle’s dungeon (Goal: level speed 9)

To complete a chapter you have to reach the specified level speed.

Prince of my Castle
Score more than 40.000 points in Arcade Mode.

See Emperor of my Castle.

King of my Castle
Score more than 60.000 points in Arcade Mode.

See Emperor of my Castle.

Emperor of my Castle
Score more than 80.000 points in Arcade Mode.

I recommend choosing easy difficulty for this one. Thunder blocks, time blocks, and combos are key to achieving this. Four time freeze blocks are not that useful, you need 5+ to make it worthwhile, and if you are near the top, thunder blocks are the best way to recover. Also, to get this quicker, do X4, X5, or even X6 combos.
From FDC1: "Fastest way is to choose easy mode and go for a x5 or x6 combo. You can get the 3 trophies in 1minute if you're good/lucky enough."

Unchallenged
Complete all the challenges.

There are 16 challenges to complete. They are:
  • Blast 7 blocks at once
  • Make a X2 combo
  • Coins, diamonds, & treasures: get 3 at once
  • Score 10000 points
  • Die with 0 points
  • Blast 9 blocks at once
  • Make a X4 combo
  • Coins, diamonds, & treasures: get 5 at once
  • Score 25000 points
  • Make a Clear Bonus
  • Blast 10 blocks at once
  • Make a X10 combo
  • Coins, diamonds, & treasures: get 8 at once
  • Score 50000 points
  • End chapter 5 with only one chain reaction
  • Beat the developers

See my Challenges Guide for help with all the challenges.

Treasure hunter
Collect 1.000 treasures.

Cumulative total, just keep playing and you will get this.

Thunder God
Activate 1.000 thunder blocks.

Cumulative total, just keep playing and you will get this.

Double Decker addict
Make 222 Double Deckers.

A double decker is when you stack 3 of the same colour on top of a different 3 of the same colour. Then swap 2 blocks around to make 2 sets of 4 blast at the same time. Refer to this video:


It’s a cumulative total, so just try to do as many as you can in all modes.

Time Master
Freeze time to one hour

When you match up 4 or more of the blocks with clocks on them, it freezes time, for a second or 2. So this trophy is going to be a bit of a grind. All you can do is just freeze time as often as you can. Try to match up 5, 6, or even 7 time freeze blocks, as this will freeze time for a lot longer than 4 will. Matching 7 freeze blocks up will freeze time for around 20 seconds.

Block buster
Make a X4 combo

To make a X4 combo you need to blast some blocks, then 4 more sets of blocks get blasted without you “swapping” blocks.

Maxi-match
Match a 10 bricks shape

To match a 10 brick shape, you need to have a spare blue near the top. Now, align 3 blues then leave a space, then align another 3 blues. Under the space, you need to line up another 3 blues, this time vertically. Then just slip the spare blue at the top in to make a “T” shape, and net you this trophy. (Note: You can use any colour.) Refer to this video:


Matching a 10 brick shape is also a challenge.

Accredited gamer
View the credits until the end

Really easy trophy, just watch the credits all the way through, like I did in this video:

-Don't know if it can help, but you can find some the trophy icons for this game on this russian site:

http://www.stratege.ru/trophies/psn/...series-02-swap

-I think you underestimate the time to "100%" this game. I'd pay good money to see someone to do it in 5 hours. Let's say you take 1 hour for castle mode and arcade mode trophies, 2 hours for challenge mode trophy.That's already optimistic. No way you get "time master" in only 2 hours. I'd say 8-10 hours is already a better estimation. Hell, I even think most people will need 10-12 hours

-For arcade mode, fastest way is to choose easy mode and go for a x5 or x6 combo. You can get the 3 trophies in 1mn if you're good/lucky enough.

Thanks for all that, mate.

Although, we have to use images off of this site. But thanks for the other tips.

When i was grinding for the time freeze trophy i stumbled across a way to freeze time permanently, you double decker thunder and clocks. I did 7clocks+6thunder, maybe other combos work. Unfortunately it doesn't seem to count for the trophy though, after i'd grinded a lot i left the game frozen for 30 mins n it didn't pop.

Pfew, finally got all challenges (x10 is a b i t c h)
4/10 is way underrated in my opinion, should be at least 6/10
Now the boring time thing and we're at 100%...
Very fun game by the way, huge value for money...

Default Sugesstion

You may want to add that if you still need thunder blocks at the end (like I do) you can go to Arcade and select Normal difficulty. That way, thunder blocks will be available to you at the start of the level.
