Stick it to the Man is an humorous and totally absurd side-scrolling puzzle platformer that mostly has the player solving puzzles by using a sticker system that is eerily similar to the one found in LittleBigPlanet. You will be spending a lot of time reading minds and listening to amusing dialogue, with occasional sections of stealth and enemy evasion inbetween.


Step 1: Enjoy the game
You will get most of the trophies if you fully explore the levels, but you could just as easily miss most of them if you rush through them too quickly. These are the trophies you should get without too much effort.

Drowned Skeletons
Lady in the Sky with Ducky
Subconscious Experience
Careful What You Wish For
Crew of the Dead
Food for Thought
Unnatural Talent
Dangerous Work
Love is Blind
Out of His Mind

You can try to get Tower Offense during your first playthrough. If you get caught, get to the top of the tower and quick travel back down to start over. I was able to get the trophy this way without restarting the level.

Step 2: Clean up
Use chapter select to get any trophies you missed. If you didn't read every mind in the game, the chapter select screen tells you how many minds you have read in each level, so you can use this to narrow down your search. Also keep in mind that bringing up the map by pressing will reveal where all the characters are on the level. Here are the skill-based trophies you may have missed.

A Mind is a Terrible Thing to Waste
Tower Offense
The Bird in the Sky
Conga Line!

A Mind is a Terrible Thing to Waste
Read the minds of everyone ever (9) 

Pretty self-explanatory, you have to read the minds of everyone in the game. You can use chapter select for this. The Chapter Select screen tells you how many minds you have read in each level and the map for each level shows you where everything is located, therefore this should be a simple clean up.

Drowned Skeletons
Read the minds of the drowned skeletons 

These are at the far right of Chapter 3, you'll get to a point where 2 men with guns are blocking your path. After you've cleared them, walk to the right at the end of the dock and press then 2 skeletons will be down in the water.

Have enemies chasing other enemies chasing you 

You'll start using decoy stickers in Chapter 5. The first time you learn how to do it, there will be 2 mobsters, one at the top of the screen and one down below. Take the decoy sticker from the bottom one and place it right back on him, the top monster will spot the bottom one and start to chase him. Drop down and get the mobster with the decoy sticker to chase you, while the other mobster is chasing him and you should get the trophy.

Lady in the Sky with Ducky
Return a totally sweet alien to the stars 

In Chapter 6, give the rubber duck Inner Tube to the old lady. The rubber duck is at the very bottom of the map, to the far left, and the old lady is on the roof.

Tower Offense
Climb the asylum tower without alerting any nurses (2) 

This is also in Chapter 6. If you press Select and look at your map, the tower is clearly visible. This is a stealth trophy and you can't be detected by the nurses (or let the spotlights alert them). You do not have to restart the level if you mess up! I can confirm this, I got the trophy simply be restarting from the bottom of the tower. It took me several tries to figure out and it popped fine once I made a clean run. Just make sure you trigger the autosave at the beginning of the sequence before starting over.

Simply run past the first nurse and light. The tricky part is the 2nd area, with the 2 nurses and the 1 spotlight. You may think that you need to sleep stickers, but it is possible to get by them. Start from under the first nurse, so that you are standing right beside the spotlight beam. Take the sleep sticker from the nurse and put her to sleep, then grab the thumb tack to the upper left. There is a series of 3 platforms here, stand on the middle one. She cannot see you because there is a wall there. Wait for her to wake up, get the sleep sticker again - be careful not to accidentally grab the thumb tack, although there is enough time to drop back down if you do. Now is the tricky part. You have to put the top nurse to sleep, then jump to the platform below the thumb tack. You will be visible to the bottom nurse and she will start to spot you so you have to hurry, jump to the next platform up and quickly run to the far left wall. If you do it fast enough, she won’t spot you in time, and she will reset. Now run past the sleeping nurse and head up the tower. The trophy should appear shortly after grabbing the last thumb-tack.

Subconscious Experience
Read Harry's mind while he's passed out 

As you progress through Chapter 6 you'll help someone digging a tunnel and afterwards there will be a guard with a flashlight, this is Harry. You’ll scare him into unconsciousness as part of the story and if you read his mind after he passes out, you'll get this trophy.

Careful What You Wish For
Read the mind of a lonely cat 

In Chapter 6 there is a woman holding a cat. Go to the left side of the map and then go up past some guards to get on the roof. There you'll find a man who thinks he's a piece of cheese. Read his mind and you'll find dead mouse sticker. Return to the woman holding the cat while holding the dead mouse and she'll drop the cat, then read the cat's mind while he's laying on the floor.

Crew of the Dead
Read the minds of the ambulance personnel 

In Chapter 6, the ambulance drivers are located on the very far right of the level, through the tunnel with the Harry (the unconscious guard). You'll have to tear away a piece of paper to reveal an ambulance with an important car battery and 3 skeletons that you can mind read for this trophy.

Give poor Ron the perfect idea for a date 

This is in Chapter 7. Ron can be found right before that police barricade, in a somewhat high building behind some paper that needs to be torn away. You have to give him a poster for the opera concert, which is found behind some paper where the guy in the helicopter has a conversation with his girlfriend.

Food for Thought
Read the mind of an eaten fish 

In Chapter 7 you'll pass a bird on a sign early in the level. After the 2nd helicopter section the bird will eat a fish, return to the sign and read the mind of the fish inside the bird's stomach for this trophy.

The Bird in the Sky
Never get noticed by the helicopter (2) 

This is in Chapter 7. There are 2 sections you have to make it through without getting caught as you progress through the level.

The first one is easy enough. At the starting point, notice the thumb tack to the far right. Wait until the helicopter is moving away from you, grab the tack just as the helicopter passes it, rush forward, and drop down, and move back into the safe point. As the helicopter passes again going to the left, make a run for it and you should reach the end of the section before the helicopter gets back.

The second section is a bit more hectic. I suggest taking the sleep sticker from the guard at the beginning as it can be handy. Move to the right when the guard is also on the right, that way you can stop while he's above you. You may need to put him to sleep from here to move to the next obvious safe spot. You can get past the 2nd guard by grabbing the thumb tack and rushing across the top while he is on the bottom platform. Quickly use the tack at the end of the section to get out and trigger the cutscene before the helicopter returns and the trophy is yours!

Unnatural Talent
Read Luigi's mind while he's singing 

Chapter 9: Go to the bottom left section of the map and steal Elvis' guitar, then head up and to the right to find another Elvis. Give him the guitar and you'll be able to take his mouth, then take that back to the left to the 3 zombies who are being taught to sing by the choir teacher. Give the mouth to the zombie here and read his mind after he starts singing. Pick up the hair for the Love Is Blind trophy.

Conga Line!
Get chased by 5 enemies at the same time 

At the end of Chapter 9 there is a big maze section with 5 guards, you just have to get them all chasing you. I suggest using the thumb tacks to fling yourself about the area quickly to avoid them. You don't have to escape them, just get all of them chasing you at once and the trophy will pop.

Dangerous Work
Mind-read the recently departed 

In Chapter 9, close to the beginning of the level, there is a woman electrocuting a zombie. Go back and head up and grab the chimney sticker, then go back to the woman and zombie. Head right from here until you find Santa in a jail cell. Release Santa by using the chimney on the toilet, pick up the present he leaves behind and give that to the zombie being electrocuted.

Love is Blind
Read the minds of an unexpected couple 

In Chapter 9, after you get the Unnatural Talent trophy, pick up the hair and return to the top left of the level, where the yeti is imprisoned. Give her the hair, then follow her and the guard through the door and read their minds in the next area.

Out of His Mind
Read Ray's mind 

At the very beginning of Chapter 9, before you do anything, simply hold and read your own mind.
