Road Map


Introduction:

Altered Beast is an arcade classic by Sega made in 1988. You are a Roman centurion who has died in battle, and you are ordered to be resurrected by Zeus to save his daughter Athena from a Demon God called Neff. This game was later ported to the Sega Genesis/Mega Drive, though this is based on the arcade version.

Overview:

This game is very easy to get 100%. You have unlimited continues, and even when you continue, the score does not reset. All the trophies can be done in one playthrough, though there are a few missable trophies.

Step 1: Start a game on each of the difficulties.

There are four difficulties in this game: Easy, Normal, Hard, and Hardest. Start a game on each difficulty, and once the game starts, exit the game. Once you do this for all four difficulties, you will unlock Renaissance Man.

Step 2: Beat the game. Do not die until you reach level 3.

For an easier time, I suggest that you put the game's difficulty on Easy, set the lives to 4, and Energy to 5. Defeat the first three white wolves in the first stage to get the trophies Giant Man and Three in a Row. For the first two stages, do not die. Abuse the save state feature, since there is no way to replenish health in this game. Upon starting level 3, if you did not die, you will get the Untouchable trophy. Try to defeat as many two-headed wolves as you can, and try not to collect all 3 Spirit Balls early, so that you can keep the stage going for a while to give you more opportunities to kill wolves. Make sure to get the third Spirit Ball before you meet Neff, otherwise you will have to fight the boss while not in beast form, which make the fights very difficult. Try to aim for about 10 wolves per level, which will be enough. Once you have killed 30 wolves, you get the Wolf Hunter trophy. Upon completing the game, you will get the Complete the Game trophy, and all of the score related trophies.

Step 3: Online

Go online and go to Multiplayer and select "Online Co-op". Wait for someone to join, or if you cannot find someone, check the co-op thread for a partner, located here. Upon starting the game, you will earn the trophy Multiple Beasts.

Step 4: Cleanup

You should have all the trophies by now, but you can start a new game and focus on any trophies that you might have missed.

[PS3T Would Like to Thank stgermain for this Roadmap]



Complete The Game
Finish the game. (1) 


This is story related and cannot be missed. There are five levels in this game, and you have unlimited continues, so this should not pose too much of a problem. Be sure to collect Spirit Balls so that you can transform into a beast, otherwise the boss battles will be very difficult. Here are the videos for all five bosses in the game. Note, there are SPOILERS in the videos.

Renaissance Man
Start the game once with each of the four difficulty settings. (4) 

Simple. Start a game on each difficulty, which are Easy, Medium, Hard and Hardest. Once you start a game on a difficulty, exit out of the game and choose a different difficulty. After you have picked all four of them, you get this trophy.

Points III
Score 350,000 points. (5) 

(missable!)

As the trophy says, you need to get 350,000 points. If you are fully powered up when you first meet Neff in the stage, you will get 100,000 points after defeating the boss. If you are powered up when you meet Neff the second time, you get 50,000 upon defeating the boss. If you meet Neff the third time, even if you are not powered up, you only get 20,000 upon defeating the boss (thanks to jadedxspawn for this information). Aim to get fully powered up when you first meet Neff in at least three different stages so that you can get 300,000. The other 50,000 points should come naturally. Even when you lose all of your lives, when you continue, you keep your score.

Untouchable
Reach the third level without losing a life. (12) 

(missable!)

This trophy can be tricky. You must reach the third stage without dying. To make this easier, put the game on Easy with 5 Energy Bars, and abuse the save state function. Remember that your life meter does not replenish after completing a stage and that there are no health items in the game. Save after each enemy encounter, and if you get hit, reload. Be sure to get all 3 Spirit Balls in each level. See Complete the Game for videos of the boss fights.

Points II
Score 250,000 points. 

See Points III.

Boss III
Defeat the third level boss. 

This is story related and cannot be missed. You encounter this boss at the end of level 3. See Complete the Game for a video of this fight.

Boss I
Defeat the first level boss. 

This is story related and cannot be missed. You encounter this boss at the end of level 1. See Complete the Game for a video of this fight.

Wolf Hunter
Kill 30 two-headed wolves. 

(missable!)

You have to kill 30 two-headed wolves in the SAME playthrough. White wolves do count for this trophy. Be aware that when you are fully powered up, and you turn into a beast, two-headed wolves stop appearing and once you encounter Neff, the boss battle begins. To give yourself more wolves to kill, do not get the third Spirit Ball, and the stage will continue for a while longer. Be careful, because once you encounter Neff for the third time, you will fight a boss battle even if you are not fully powered up. You should aim for about 10 wolves per stage, as this will give you more than enough for this trophy, though you should try going for this after getting the Untouchable trophy.

Multiple Beasts
Play in an online multiplayer game. (25) 

You must play an online co-op game. You will get this trophy once the game starts. If you need a partner, you can check the co-op thread, located here, to find one.

Points I
Score 150,000 points. 

See Points III.

Three in a Row
Collect Spirit Balls from the first three White Wolves in any level - Single Player mode only. (1) 

(missable!)

You must defeat three white wolves and collect their Spirit Balls. You cannot miss one to get this trophy, so it is best to use the save state function. It is easiest to do in the first stage, but be aware that the third white wolf in this stage comes from the left of the screen and jumps onto the pillar. Note, you cannot get this trophy in co-op.

Giant Man
Collect a Spirit Ball. 

Simple. Defeat a white wolf and collect the Spirit Ball that floats towards the top of the screen.
