Welcome to the wonderful world of Disney Universe! Your tour guide here is VIC, a perilous, blue computer cube that is suddenly hacked by his nemesis, HEX. HEX has now taken over Disney Universe and is spreading universal panic with the help of his evil robot minions! With no one else to turn to, VIC counts on you to stop the evil HEX and save the Disney Universe! It's time to Suit Up!
Disney Universe is a side-scrolling, 3D platformer that is pretty fun to play once you get used to how the game operates. The characters you choose from are those from famous Disney movies such as Aladdin, The Lion King, and Pirates of the Caribbean just to name a few. At first glace, you may think this game resembles LittleBIGPlanet, but it is quite different in it's own way. The trophies are fairly simple to get, but you may run into one or two that will give you a slight challenge. Overall though, I'd say this game is easy enough to platinum and enjoy.
Step 1 - Play through and clear all of the worlds, freeing the first Guest at the end of each location.
First thing's first: Go to the "Options" menu and turn Help Arrows OFF, then complete the first area. Once completed, you should unlock "Old School." After this is completed, you may turn the Help Arrows ON again if you like.
This playthrough is fairly simple: Just get through each level and clear every world so that you'll be familiar with each level's layout. There are six worlds in the game with three locations each and three levels within each location. At the end of the third level of each location, there will be a boss that you must defeat in order to free a guest that was locked up by HEX. Once freed, this guest will become a playable character back at the "Costumes" screen from the Main Menu - but for a price. Also, unlocking new worlds will cost money too (2,000 coins). Speaking of which, collecting money is important in this playthrough. I would hold off buying anything until the "Richer Than A McDuck!" trophy is unlocked. For this to happen, play through the first world twice (You're going to have to anyway).
It's also important that you work on kill and weapon trophies on this playthrough as well as playing & winning HEX's challenges. Also, I suggest that you find the hidden key that unlocks the chest in each area. Unlocking the chest will give your current character a Star that will increase his/her Level by 1. Your character's max level is 4, and once finished, you should unlock "Four Star Costume!" by the end of the first location. At the start of the next location (since your character is maxed out), switch to a different character and repeat this process. This will help cut the grind down for "Ultimate Cosmic Power!"
By the end of this playthrough, you should have:
Step 2 - Play through all of the worlds again, freeing the second Guest at the end of each level, collecting all the collectibles and completing each level with a Gold grade.
Here's where things get a bit trickier for you. Your second playthrough requires you to nab every collectible along the way as well as keeping your death count to a BARE MINIMUM. If you're playing alone (Which I hope you were doing this whole time), try to keep your death count under 3 per level. When fighting enemies, keep your distance and don't go button mashing into the fray. You'll end up dying (sometimes mysteriously) which will up your respawn count. Play through the first area of the first level without dying (since it's the easiest) to unlock "Unstoppable!" At the end of each level, you will fight the same boss again. The only thing that has changed this time around is the Guest that you need to free once the boss is defeated. Also, use that money that you have/still collecting and start unlocking the rest of the characters.
I would also play HEX's challenges again as well, just to help boost your grade. All of these factors (collecting money, killing enemies, HEX's challenges, stars, collectibles, and few deaths) will determine your grade at the end of each level. Fulfilling the requirements above will more than likely earn you a Gold grade at the end of each level. The hardest part of this playthrough is simply surviving. Dying a few times is okay as long as you're collecting stuff and killing enemies, but still, I wouldn't let my death count exceed 3 per level just to secure the Gold grade. After freeing the last guest, go to The "Costumes" menu and start buying character that you were unlocking during your second playthrough until all of the characters are unlocked.
By the end of this playthrough, you'll unlock:
Step 3 – Level up all of the characters and clean up any remaining Single-Player trophies.
By now, you should only have a few more trophies to go before Platinum. If you haven't gotten any of the trophies listed above, do so now. This step will take a little time to complete, but shouldn't be too bad. Start Level 1-1 once again, collect the star from the chest and clear the area. You'd want to do this until your character's level is maxed out and then move on to the next. If you followed the roadmap above, collecting stars and switching costumes once they're maxed, you shouldn't have too many left to upgrade.
Upon completion, you should have the following:
Step 4 - Multiplayer
These should be the last bit of trophies before Platinum. All of them are quite easy to get and won't take you more than 20 minutes. However "All Together Now!" requires 4 controllers. I believe all of these obtained in the first area of the game. So there's no need to go further than that.
Your progress will lead you to the final six trophies:

World Set Complete!
Collect all of the World Collectibles within a world.
See "Compulsive Collector"
Collect all of the World Collectibles in the game.
There are 27 collectibles in each world with 9 in each location and 3 in each level. This trophy requires you to collect all 162 collectibles in the game. As long as you're finding all 3 collectibles before moving on to the next level, you should be fine and it should nab you the trophies listed above as you search. They're not hard to find at all and most are within plain sight. Some may require a more thorough search, but nothing too hard at all. For boss rooms, be sure to defeat the boss first, then search. Without the boss around, it makes looking for anything you missed in that room easier to find.
Skyripper has written an awesome guide to find all of these. You can view the guide here.
Purchase a costume.
See "Dressed for Success!"
Dressed for Success!
Purchase all of the costumes.
This will be done upon completing your second playthrough. By then, you'll have plenty of money to purchase everything. If not, go back to a level and farm for coins. Once all of the costumes become available, go to the "Costumes" menu and start purchasing all of the costumes. Once you purchase the last costume you need to buy, the trophy will pop.
Keep 'Em Coming!
Defeat 100 enemies.
Defeat 500 enemies.
You'll have this well before your second playthrough. Just keep killing enemies and progress through the game. Eventually, this trophy will pop.
Defeat an enemy whilst riding an animal.
This can be done on the first level. There will be an animal walking around behind the locked gate under the bridge. Simply use the cannon to free the animal and get on it by pressing . Once on, simply defeat an enemy and the trophy's yours.
Defeat 5 enemies using a single Snowman power-up.
Power-ups can be obtained by grabbing the floating blue VIC cubes that are scattered throughout each level. The power-up are random and you must get the Snowman one for this trophy. Use it by pressing . The enemies will freeze in an ice block, but you're still not done. You MUST continue to hold until you shatter them. Do this five times in one power-up use for the trophy to pop. You can also get this trophy during HEX challenges as well.
Defeat 5 enemies using a single Power Punch power-up.
Same as above, get the Power Punch power-up. Kill five enemies using this in one use for the trophy to pop. You can also get this trophy during HEX challenges as well.
Bad Hair Day
Defeat 5 enemies using a single Medusa power-up.
Again, same as above. And just like the Snowman power-up, continue to hold until the enemy shatters. Kill five in a single use and the trophy will pop. Can also be done during HEX's challenges.
Defeat 5 enemies using a single Shooter power-up.
This one was sort of misleading to me. When I used the space pistol, I killed five enemies in one use and there was no trophy. However, when I used the Elephant Gun, the trophy popped. The Elephant Gun is the only gun that will work, so use it.

Get a Gold Grade for a world.
See "Champion of the Universe"
Champion of the Universe
Get a Gold Grade for all worlds.
This will be obtained on your second playthrough. Grades are based on how many enemies you've defeated, how many coins you collected, the number of HEX challenges you completed, stars you collected and number of respawns. I believe freeing the second Guest affects this grade as well as I have beaten a world on my first playthrough with no deaths and got everything and I still ended up with a Silver Grade. Doing the above must be done in every world at every location for the trophy to pop.
Four Star Costume!
Fully upgrade a costume.
See "Ultimate Cosmic Power!"
World of Hurt!
Fully upgrade all of a world's costume.
See "Ultimate Cosmic Power!"
Ultimate Cosmic Power!
Fully upgrade all of the costumes in the game.
This is the grinder trophy of the game. You must upgrade every costume to the MAX level of 4. Each time you collect a star found in each area, the costume that you are currently using will level up by one. It is possible to fully upgrade a costume by the end of a location before moving on to the next, Once this is done, switch to another level 1 costume and repeat this process. By the end of your second playthrough, use your money to unlock the rest of the costumes, then start the first Pirates level, collect the star, reach the exit, then quit and repeat. This process will take a while, but nothing that should be too bad.
Play 50 Challenges.
See "For The Win!"
For The Win!
Win 50 Challenges.
The challenges that you need to play are indicated by HEX arcade machines that usually appear after you solve a puzzle or defeat a boss. Go up to the machine and activate it by pressing . Challenges usually have players either defeating enemies, dodging hazards, or collecting items. You must win at least 50 of these throughout your playthroughs for the trophy. If you still don't have 50 wins by the end of your second run, just start up the first Pirates level, win the challenge(s), reach the exit door, quit, then repeat. The challenges aren't really hard. In fact, some are really fun to play.
Store 1,000 coins in the bank.
See "Richer than a McDuck!"
Richer than a McDuck!
Store 10,000 coins in the bank.
I played through the Pirates world twice before moving on through the game to get this trophy. Just keep collecting coins and don't buy anything until reach 10,000 coins stored and this trophy. Afterwards, you can start purchasing costumes and levels if you like.
Complete a level without respawning.
This will be tricky at first, but your best bet to get this one is by playing the first Pirates level. When you start, just follow your objectives, avoid enemies and finish the level as quick as you can. Try to stay away from the enemies as you work because you could suffer from a one-hit kill. I would do this alone as well. If two or more players play, hazards like HEX cubes will show up and make things even worse. Time your jumps over the bridge to avoid falling and ignore the last group of enemies one the gate is open. If you reach the exit without dying, the trophy will pop.
Complete a level without using help arrows.
I highly suggest you make this the first trophy you get as the help arrows will become VERY useful later on. Just go to "Options" and turn off the Help Arrows, then complete the first Pirates stage. Once you've earned your trophy, return to the "Options" screen and turn the Help Arrows back on again.
Tag! You're it!
Transfer a curse to another player.
Must be done with at least two players. While playing, a HEX cube will appear and start chasing the players. If it touches you, you will be cursed, Simply touch another player while you're cursed to pass it along to them. Once you do this, the trophy will pop.
To Infinity... and Beyond!
Defeat another player by throwing them.
Pick up another player by pressing and find a pit. Simply thrown them into it, defeating them and the trophy's yours.
Playing to Win!
Defeat 5 players in a single level.
Repeat the above trophy four more times and the trophy's yours.
Along for the Ride
Complete a level in multiplayer.
See "All Together Now!"
All Together Now!
Complete a level with 4 players.
This trophy REQUIRES 4 controllers. However, one person is only needed to get it. This is best done on the first Pirates level. Complete the level as normal and alternate between controllers moving the players along until you reach the exit. You don't have to worry about staying alive here. You're just trying to get to the exit to get the trophy. So take your time here.
Collected all other trophies.
Earn the aforementioned 40 trophies in the game and the universe is yours...in the form of this Platinum Trophy. Congratulations!

Thanks very much for this, was waiting for a road map to help decide whether this is a rent or buy for me. 15-20 hours sounds like a rent

A couple of things I found helpful.
1) you cannot get a gold rating on a level on your first go through, so just motor through it and get all of the collectibles. I've had flawless runs, 2k kills and all challenge wins and still no gold.
2) To farm the costume stars, make a playlist with the first level and first zone from Pirates. This way you can just keep playing the playlist and not worry about quitting the level.
Hope this helps!

Too bad that this game gets quite repetitive when you replay the worlds. If you want to enjoy the game, just continue to the next world and forget grinding.
