Back to the Future - Episode 1: It's About Time

Back to the Future - Episode 1: It's About Time Trophies
Flawlessly mixed up a batch of Emmett's Rocket Fuel 

After finishing all of the tasks required to begin crafting the Rocket Drill, Emmett will ask you to mix the rocket fuel while he argues with his father as a distraction. Pay attention to Doc's cues as he is yelling at his father to tell you what to do. The words will have extra emphasis on them, young Emmett will say them louder, and they will also appear all in capital letters if subtitles are enabled. There are 4 different sections to the sequence, Emmett will appear downstairs and will inform you when you have reached 25%, 50%, and 75% of the concoction. The commands get faster and faster as you progress. Unfortunately, the order of devices used is random each time so I cannot write you a step by step for this, just pay attention and react quickly. The meter will be shown and it will ding every time you get one cue correct.

Beware, about half way through Emmett's father will begin to yell similar words which will also appear in the subtitles, so you need to be extra careful that you only listen to Emmett's commands. If you mess up, you will know because Emmett will stop arguing with his father and come down to speak to you and tell you to listen for his cues. Should this happen to you, you can press the button and exit to the XMB and restart the game. Now you can load, which will start you back at the beginning from the mixing sequence and you may try again. Alternatively, as DarkSeraphim666 so graciously pointed out, you can simply press and load from there.

The cues will follow the lines of:

Stoke Fire:

Sprinkle Bacteria Food:

Release Gaseous Pressure:
-Release Valve
-Bags of Gas

Turn Electrical Crank:

You can save between mixung I saved just incase of mistakes everytime he came down and told me how far though mixture I was.

I missed trophy on first play through but done second one and found that when dialog is going on you can skip though to your input part by pressing CIRCLE everytime computer goes to speak, I got game done from start to finish in 63 minutes doing it this way.

Here's something I learned on this one: it's ok if you don't perform the action before the next clue is given. There is a grace period after each clue is given, so as long as you do it in the correct order in a timely manner, you should be fine.

Ugh, loose analog stick selecting the wrong one at the last microsecond before pressing X. Skipping this one and have 95% trophies from the free download on PSN. 100% doesn't give you a plat anyway. Neat trial don't think I'd buy game but great movies.

Just try to save after being successful with every 25% and this will be easy. Just reload (and save in a separate slot in the first playthrough, than this will be done within minutes)when emmett appears..
