Wonderbook: Diggs Nightcrawler - Trophy Guide and Roadmap


Recommended Posts

http://i.imgur.com/y8pYUKQ.png

 

Welcome to my very first trophy guide! Please bear that in mind if it isn't as polished as the others. Also, many thanks to GlennThomas for the awesome banner!

 

Roadmap

Overview

  • Estimated Difficulty: N/A (official, Difficulty Rating Poll), 3/10 (personal estimate)
  • Approximate Time to http://www.ps3trophies.org/forum/images/smilies/platinum.png: 8 hours (3 for initial playthrough, 5 for cleanup and photo assignments)
  • Minimum Playthroughs: 1 (+ free chapter/page selection after story completion)
  • Offline Trophies: 38 (23http://www.ps3trophies.org/forum/images/smilies/trophy_bronze.png, 10http://www.ps3trophies.org/forum/images/smilies/trophy_silver.png, 4http://www.ps3trophies.org/forum/images/smilies/trophy_gold.png)
  • Online Trophies: 0
  • Glitched Trophies: http://www.ps3trophies.org/forum/images/smilies/trophy_gold.pngCareful Climber (apparently)
  • Missable Trophies: [N/A]
  • Are trophies affected by difficulty? [N/A]
  • Are trophies affected by cheats? [N/A]
  • Required peripherals: PlayStation Move and Eye (duh), Wonderbook (double duh)

 

Step One: Complete the game

This won't take long; without the replay content, this game is only slightly longer than Book of Spells! There are three chapters in total, each comprised of one full length of the Wonderbook. Each chapter should take approximately half-an-hour (at most) to clear first time 'round. Doing this will net you most of the trophies (almost all the bronzes, most of the silvers, and maybe a gold or two depending on your skill level).

 

Step Two: Cleanup and Photo Assignments

Now you can get to work on any trophies you missed and start the photo assignments. After finishing the storyline, all pages of all three chapters will be available to you. You move between chapters by gently tilting the (closed) Wonderbook to either the left or right, and can flip between pages on the fly as necessary.

 

Detailed information on the photo assignments can be found in the description for the Master Photographer trophy.

Trophy Guide

 

http://www.ps3trophies.org/images/trophies/1950/44A.jpg Platinum

Unlock all other trophies

 

Kinda self-explanatory, don't'cha think? Still, give yourself a pat on the back when this baby pops!

 

http://www.ps3trophies.org/images/trophies/1950/841.jpg Why Don't You Come In?

Enter Diggs's office

 

Story-related, can't be missed. It's literally the very first thing you do in the game! (Well, aside from waving away the logo.)

 

http://www.ps3trophies.org/images/trophies/1950/029.jpg Cast of Library City

Meet all of the characters during the corridor chase

 

There are five characters you can meet while chasing the shadow: one of Bo Peep's sheep, the Gentleman Spoon, the Frog Prince, and two of the Three Blind Mice. You're supposed to be able to see their shadows at certain junctions, indicating where they are, but these can be hard to see, especially when the book is oriented vertically. It's easier to just go in the opposite direction of the shadow. Speaking of whom, the trophy will pop once you catch him at the elevator.

 

http://www.ps3trophies.org/images/trophies/1950/029.jpg Nose for Trouble

Follow the villain's shadow without making a mistake

 

During the chase, don't turn onto a dead end (which includes meeting the other characters). The perfect route is LRLLRRRLRLRL. Like Cast of Library City, this will pop at the elevator.

 

http://www.ps3trophies.org/images/trophies/1950/841.jpg Lightning Catcher

Look at the lightning through the elevator window

 

In the elevator room at the end of the chase, rotate the book to look through the window and see a lightning bolt flash. You can do this at any time during the scene.

 

http://www.ps3trophies.org/images/trophies/1950/841.jpg Shark Bait

Rub the shark to find the objects

 

Story-related, can't be missed. When Diggs descends to the sewer underneath the crime scene, rub the book at the right times to obtain the Frying Pan business card and another shell fragment.

 

http://www.ps3trophies.org/images/trophies/1950/841.jpg Join the Circus

Help Diggs enter Humpty's Club

 

After the monkeys start fighting amongst themselves, fold the book to lower a rope in order to enter the Frying Pan.

 

http://www.ps3trophies.org/images/trophies/1950/841.jpg Hogpiled

Get caught and escape from the three little pigs three times in Humpty's club

 

During the escape sequence, let Diggs be caught by the pigs, then shake the Wonderbook to shake them off. Do this three times to pop the trophy.

 

http://www.ps3trophies.org/images/trophies/1950/8C3.jpg Cut down on Bacon

Don't get caught by the three little pigs in Humpty's club

 

Same situation as Hogpiled, but this time, don't get caught at all. Run into as many stools as you can to flick them at the pigs during the first part, and quickly weave through the gaps in the furniture in the second part. This may require more than one try, but it isn't too difficult.

 

http://www.ps3trophies.org/images/trophies/1950/841.jpg Pigs in Blankets

Escape from the three little pigs

 

Story-related, can't be missed. When hiding from the three little pigs after the escape from the Frying Pan, trap them all as they search for Diggs. Follow Diggs' instructions and, when the officers are in position, signal Diggs by calling out, clapping or just pressing the X button.

 

http://www.ps3trophies.org/images/trophies/1950/841.jpg Maestro

Play all the musical instruments at the same time

 

The description for this trophy is slightly erroneous; you only have to play two of the instruments. After you tip the cello and trumpet out of the car, wave your hand over them to play them. You can also rub your other hand over the piano on the roof, creating quite a catchy tune! ...Before your arms get tired, that is.

 

http://www.ps3trophies.org/images/trophies/1950/841.jpg Private Party

Find the dancers behind Humpty's Club

 

When outside the back entrance to the Frying Pan, rotate the book in order to spot the dancers through a window.

 

http://www.ps3trophies.org/images/trophies/1950/029.jpg Chapter One Complete

Complete Chapter One

 

Story-related, can't be missed. Should pop just after Diggs and the mice drive off.

 

http://www.ps3trophies.org/images/trophies/1950/841.jpg Sheep Tower

Make a sheep pile and knock it down

 

During the car chase at the start of chapter two, when a line of sheep appear in one of the lanes, drive into them all so that they form a tower on top of the car which will then fall apart on its own.

 

http://www.ps3trophies.org/images/trophies/1950/029.jpg Skilful Driver

Drive without hitting obstacles

 

Definitely one of the hardest trophies in the game. Avoid the rows of sheep (or "livestock!"), traffic cones, and other vehicles. Sadly, there's not much I can say about this one other than "practice makes perfect". It'll pop when you have to ram the shadow's car for the third and final time.

 

http://www.ps3trophies.org/images/trophies/1950/841.jpg Decision Maker

Chose a path for Diggs

 

Story-related, can't be missed. When you have to choose where to head first after the chase, just choose a destination; it doesn't matter which.

 

http://www.ps3trophies.org/images/trophies/1950/029.jpg Quackers

Hit all the musical ducks

 

During Digg's ride down the rapids, trios of rubber ducks in fedoras will appear at the edges of the stream (usually the left). Knock into them all in one ride in order to pop the trophy.

 

http://www.ps3trophies.org/images/trophies/1950/841.jpg Sheep Passenger

Carry a sheep on Diggs' barrel

 

Some of the barrels you have to steer Diggs into in order to free him will have sheep inside, so you really can't miss this one.

 

http://www.ps3trophies.org/images/trophies/1950/841.jpg The Big Sheep

Clear up the big sheep pile in 30 seconds

 

Shake the Wonderbok vigorously to rescue Bo Peep within half-a-minute. Contrary to what seems to be popular opinion, don't stop while a sheep slides down the screen. This is pretty much guaranteed to leave your arms mildly sore, but the brief pain will be worth it when you hear that wonderful glinting sound!

 

http://www.ps3trophies.org/images/trophies/1950/841.jpg Bookworm

Help Ma Goose to fix a broken book

 

Story-related, can't be missed. Just find the second half of Aladdin's book to repair it.

 

http://www.ps3trophies.org/images/trophies/1950/8C3.jpg True Librarian

Help Ma Goose to fix 5 books in 240 seconds

 

This one isn't too difficult; repair four more books by finding each of their halves, all within four minutes. It's easy to tell which halves go together, there are matching images on the front and back covers. Just rotate the book quickly so that Diggs avoids spending less time climbing the ladders than reaching them.

 

http://www.ps3trophies.org/images/trophies/1950/841.jpg Merry Men in Disguise

Sneak past the three monkeys

 

Story-related, can't be missed. Alert Diggs when Seeno covers his eyes, when Hearno is walking between his posts, and when Speakno and Robin are looking away from Diggs' path.

http://www.ps3trophies.org/images/trophies/1950/029.jpg Escape artist

Unravel Diggs without Shadow noticing in the hangar

 

This one is pretty easy: after burning all but one of the ropes holding Diggs, the Shadow will return to take a phone call. During this, rotate the book anti-clockwise three times, making sure to hold it still when the Shadow looks round to check on Diggs. Each conversation segment should provide time for one full turn.

 

Now, this trophy is hardly difficult enough to warrant what could technically be called a cheat, but here's one anyway: if you can angle the book so that the "can't detect Wonderbook" notice pops up, and keep it that way while rotating it, you can do it all in one go! This is because, although the PlayStation Eye can't see the patterns on the pages of the Wonderbook and, as such, render the scene, it still registers the movement of the book and re-renders the game scene as such once it detects the pages again.

 

http://www.ps3trophies.org/images/trophies/1950/029.jpg Chapter Two Complete

Complete Chapter Two

 

Story-related, can't be missed. Should pop when the shadow leaves after Diggs is captured.

 

http://www.ps3trophies.org/images/trophies/1950/841.jpg Invisible Man's navigator

Help the Invisible Man to find the entrance

 

Story-related, can't be missed. I know it feels rotten to help one of the bad guys, but we have to in order to get to Diggs. Don't worry, we'll be back with him soon enough!

 

http://www.ps3trophies.org/images/trophies/1950/841.jpg Fire Fighter

Stop the fire

 

Story-related. Once the graveyard starts burning, wave your hand over the book to extinguish the flames.

 

Note: Apparently, this one actually is missable, and some people didn't get the trophy on the first try, but I can only go on what I've experienced first-hand, and, while I know that there is a time limit (after which the flames will go out automatically), I personally found it to be so generous that you'd actually have to not attempt to extinguish the flames at all for that to be the case.

 

http://www.ps3trophies.org/images/trophies/1950/841.jpg Who's the boss?

Find out who is the boss

 

Story-related, can't be missed. Ma Goose was right, it isn't who we thought!

 

http://www.ps3trophies.org/images/trophies/1950/029.jpg Master Monkey Basher

Only hit the monkeys

 

When Diggs fights Invisible Manny, you have to help by playing a game of whack-a-monkey. One thing that can help here is using the Move controller as a makeshift hammer. Tap gently so that the game won't register a hit on both pages when there are good guys about.

 

http://www.ps3trophies.org/images/trophies/1950/841.jpg Double Whammy

Hit two Monkeys at the same time

 

Self-explanatory; this can be got without really trying. When there are monkeys on both pages, hit the middle of the book to get 'em together.

 

http://www.ps3trophies.org/images/trophies/1950/841.jpg Back to Life

Humpty comes back to life

 

Story-related, can't be missed. The don is back!

 

http://www.ps3trophies.org/images/trophies/1950/841.jpg Quickdraw Diggs

Complete the shoot-out in 210 seconds

 

Just rotate the book when Itsy comes out of hiding. Don't worry, Diggs can't actually be hurt.

 

http://www.ps3trophies.org/images/trophies/1950/8C3.jpg Careful Climber

Climb up the waterspout without being hit

 

The penultimate page involves a climb up Itsy's waterspout, with hazards abound! Avoid the "barrels from Frankie", move slowly to avoid disturbing the colonies of bats living in offshoot pipes, and make sure to time passing the handles on the rotating valves correctly.

 

It isn't all that difficult, but there is a tricky part near the peak where a valve is immediately followed by a barrel drop. All in all, just take it slow.

 

Note: A significant number of forum members (i.e. more than two) have mentioned that this trophy is glitched, and that they had to complete the requirement as many as nine(!) times before it actually popped. Thus, in accordance with wikiality, it must be true. I guess I was extraordinarily lucky to have it pop first time!

 

http://www.ps3trophies.org/images/trophies/1950/841.jpg Fate

Down came the rain and washed the spider out

 

Story-related, can't be missed. We can't escape our stories, doll.

 

http://www.ps3trophies.org/images/trophies/1950/841.jpg Recount the Astounding Story

Report everything to Humpty

 

Story-related, can't be missed. Show all four film reels to Humpty on the final page (in any order).

 

http://www.ps3trophies.org/images/trophies/1950/029.jpg Chapter Three Complete

Complete Chapter Three

 

Story-related, can't be missed. Should pop as the credits start rolling.

 

http://www.ps3trophies.org/images/trophies/1950/841.jpg Apprentice Photographer

Complete 20 photo assignments

 

(See Master Photographer)

 

http://www.ps3trophies.org/images/trophies/1950/029.jpg Senior Photographer

Complete 50 photo assignments

 

(See Master Photographer)

 

http://www.ps3trophies.org/images/trophies/1950/8C3.jpg Master Photographer

Complete all 88 photo assignments

 

This is what you'll be spending the majority of your time in the game doing. Technically you can start these as you complete each chapter, but it's highly recommended that you wait until finishing the storyline before doing so.

 

On a repeat playthrough, going into the pause menu will reveal a certain number of characters and/or situations that need to be photographed. To do so, press the Triangle button on the Move controller to activate (and deactivate) the camera. You can switch between capturing still images and video by pressing the Square button, but this is never actually required. Once you have the correct shot lined up, press either the Move button or the T trigger to snap it. If the photo meets the requirements, it will be marked with a red fedora hat stamp.

 

Note: Most of the photos are easy enough, but there are a few that can be really frustrating. For these, try taking them upside-down. As absurd as it may sound, it really works!

Congratulations on your first guide. It's looking pretty good already, but if you want to add any stuff, feel free to take a look at my guide (see my sig) and ask me for the format.

 

Also, my (awesome) banner was made by GlennThomas who is part of the graphics team. You can ask him to make you one!

 

I got this game in my backlog and will probably start on it soon as it sounds like a short game...i'll be sure to use your guide!!

Make another post and PM a mod or guide team to move it up.

 

Nah, I think it's fine the way it is. Most of the extra text was for the photo mode, and the rest of the game is easy enough that it doesn't require in-depth explanation.

 

I might make a separate mini-guide for the photo assignments, but not right now; I think I have Wonderbook fatigue.

Some tips about the Careful Climber trophy (Climb up the waterspout without being hit)

 

- For the first part (when you are with the egg), you can go as quick as you want, nothing can happen to you, then move slowly the rest of the time

 

- When Franky throws barrels at you, stop and rotate the book the other way round

 

- Bats : just turn the book very slow, you wont have any problem

 

- The rotating pipes (the hardest parts) : They are 4 of them, the first one is easy, the other 3 can be a pain. Just stop the closest to them, then move slowly and when you are inside the pipes, move the book quickly.

 

Bad news is that this trophy is glitched. I had to do it twice for it to pop.

 

Good luck!

Yup definitely glitched. As if this trophy wasn't annoying enough, i now completed it 4 (!) times and for me the trophy still didn't pop. Might wanne add that to the guide!!!

From my experience it doesn't want to unlock if you fail then turn the page to leave and come back to try again. Only way is to close the book fully so it takes you to chapter selection then back to this page.

Okay thanks, i will try that. Could it be the same for 'The Big Sheep' trophy? That one is driving me absolutely insane!!

not sure if u turn the page and come back, it still unlock the trophy...

 

I played once, perfectly, and the Careful Climber trophy didn't pop. Then i turned the page and come back, and played perfectly, then the trophy popped.

 

Same thing for Double Whammy (Hit two Monkeys at the same time), the trophy didn't, even though i hitted 2 monkeys at the same time, more than once...

 

This game is just glitched, but not impossible to plat.

1-2 hours to (P) this game? You got to be kidding me. You need to play it through at least twice. Just once is over an hour. You are very likely to try at least a couple of times on certain trophies and some of the items you gotta photograph can take a little while. It's at least 3 hours. <_<

 

I would like to see some more tips on several of the trophies, especially the harder ones.

 

EDIT:

I got the (P) now, and because of a glitch that freezes the console and some other stuff that takes time, I can safely say it is not likely anyone will get the (P) in 3 hours, maybe, just maybe if they speedrun, but not else. It's not 1-2 hours whatsoever. A normal person for the first time would spend at least 5 hours, probably 6-8 or something along those lines. The difficulty is about 2/10. This guide helped me very little with what I actually had issues with, and the shaking of the sheeps should not be done very quickly, but in fact steady and a bit slowly so the game can actually register your every shake.

Just wanted to agree with above poster. Taking photos alone will take minimun of 2-3 hours. You're looking at 6-8 for a platinum. Also, stop the fire trophy isn't story related. If you don't do it within a set amount of time, the game will just carry on. Don't know the exact time though, sorry. Played it with my daughter first and thn went back and did it again for trophy clean up, stop the fire popped on my second playthrough.

 

Some useful tips for the tilt sections, on the car chase, tilt slowly as you have time to see what is coming. In the pig chase and water section, tilt fast. You have very little time to react, especially on the last pig. To collect all the musical ducks, line yourself up with the first one that appears very quickly and as soon as you hit it tilt the book quickly in the direction of the others or you will miss the last one.

 

 

 

Good work on the guide!

Yeah, I let my wife play most of the game for me through the first time, and she missed the fire trophy as well.

 

I would recommend when it comes to tilting you just put it down on the table or something and grab the left and right side with your hands. Then you can lift up the side you don't want to go against. Also make sure you calibrate the game often, especially with the light outside changing, it makes a huge difference in this game. The tips I just gave now gave me superb control, and I did most of the tilting stuff in 2 attempts this way. The car stuff took me 4 attempts though.

First of all, overall the guide was well done and you have my thanks for that.

 

The two things that really need to be adjusted are:

1) Fire Fighter is not story related. It is missable, and took me another two tries before it finally unlocked.

 

2) The "approximate time" you list of 3-5 hours is very misleading. There is only one person of the 210 people listed on psnprofiles that managed to do this in under 4 hours and 45 minutes. Less than 25 people finished it in under 10 hours, and I suggest changing it to 5-15 hours as that would be far more accurate due the to the horrible glitchy nature of this game.

Thanks for the compliments!

 

I've removed the "unmissable" part from the description for Fire Fighter, and added a note giving further detail. The trophy is story-related in that the fire starts as part of the storyline.

 

As for the time, as I state in the note appended to Fire Fighter, I can only really go on what I know first-hand. And right now, there just isn't enough evidence for me to really change it. Perhaps once the game is released in North America and there is a larger number of gamers, I can pool them to see how they did and where they struggled, and form a more cohesive time scale.

Thanks for removing the part about Fire Fighter being unmissable. While it is technically story related, basically every trophy on this game is as well, even arguably photo assignments. The thing is you only wrote it here because you were flagging it as unmissable.

 

I looked at your card and it said it took you four days and nine hours. If you had spend two hours each of the five days, then you really should adjust the estimated time to ten hours. It wasn't just me that had a hard time getting photo assignments to register, and having to meet the requirements of climbing the tower without being hit more than once - all of which factor into the estimated time.
