Introduction:

 

Cybarian The Time Travelling Warrior is an 8 bit style platformer from Ratalaika Games, heavily inspired by 80s action movies like Conan, Terminator and Robocop.

 

You control a Barbarian that has to use his huge sword to slash his way through a variety of city locations, killing any bad guys or robots he come across, while avoiding obstacles like spike pits, pillars of fire and even bigger end of stage robot bosses. Cybarian's move repertoire increases as he moves through the stages, gaining a roll that allows him to dodge enemies after Stage 1 and then the ability to throw his sword like a boomerang after Stage 2.

 

The road to the Platinum is quite straight forward. Most of the trophies will come naturally just by playing through the levels, however you may need to play Stage 1 twice if you opt to do your first playthrough on Easy.

 

Tips:

 

While this is a reasonably easy Platinum, there are definitely some tricky sections. Here are some general tips for progressing through the game:

 

  • Before you start, turn the 'Scanlines' to 'Off' in the Settings for the game. This is a personal preference but I found it easier to focus on the game when these were turned off.
  • There's a secret room to the left of your starting location on Stage 1 with about 25 coins in containers
  • Master the timing of the 'full combo' since this will make getting through the game a lot easier
  • Collect all the coins you can, because these will allow you to top up your health at any vending machines you come across
  • When you enter a new room, take your time to watch the pattern of any obstacles before you run through it. This is especially important in stages 2 and 3 that have a lot more obstacles to avoid such as spike pits and fire pillars.
  • The sword throw is very powerful so make sure you use it to safely take down enemies from distance when you obtain it.

 

Walkthrough:

 

Step 1: Change the difficulty to Easy in the Main Menu, and then play the game up to the Stage 3 boss, taking note of the missable trophies

 

Play through the game up until you get the trophy for reaching the Stage 3 boss. You do not need to kill the Stage 3 boss. Make sure that along the way you're grabbing as many coins as possible and also using the vending machines so you get the trophies for 40 coins and for buying 5 hearts. Also ensure you hit a homeless guy on the first screen and kill a Laser Eye enemy. Once you reach the Stage 3 boss, exit back to the Main Menu.

 

At the end of this step, you will have earned the following:

 

Not good (B)

Combo Time (S)

What's this yellow thing? (B)

I've a lot of these (S)

I'm rich now (G)

Recovering (B)

Damaged (S)

Over-Damaged (G)

What kind of sorcery is this? (G)

Why is he hitting me with a tree? (B)

Is he even human? (S)

Lucky time! (S)

A two legged thing? (S)

Flying bull (G)

The Twins (G)

I can now roll (G)

I can now throw my sword (G)

 

 

Step 2: Change the difficulty to Hard in the Main Menu and reach the Stage 1 boss

 

Once you've finished Step 1, change the difficulty to Hard and start a new game. After reaching the boss of Stage 1, you should obtain the final trophy needed for the Platinum.

 

At the end of this step, you will have earned the following:

Trophy Guide:

 

http://www.playstationtrophies.org/images/trophies/9029/c10.jpg Platinum Barbarian (P)

Get all other trophies

 

Once you've unlocked all the other trophies, you'll earn this shiny new Platinum!

 

http://www.playstationtrophies.org/images/trophies/9029/870.jpg Not good (B)

Hit a homless guy

 

Missable!

 

There are two 'homeless guys' on the very first screen of the game. Simply walk up to either one of them and press :square: to earn the trophy. They will not attack you even if you attack them.

 

I have marked the trophy as 'Missable' since it's technically possible to walk past them and on to the next screen without attacking. However, since it's the very first screen in the game, simply start a new game and hit one of them if you forget to do it on your first playthrough.

 

http://www.playstationtrophies.org/images/trophies/9029/adb.jpg Combo Time (S)

Complete a full combo

 

A full combo is when you press the :square: button 3 times in a row to complete Cybarian's sword combo. There is some timing needed for this, since mashing the button won't work and will result in Cybarian spinning around and falling over.

 

Cybarian's sword will glow yellow momentarily after you press :square: to make the first attack. This is when you need to press :square: again to execute the second part of the combo. Do the same thing to execute the third and final part of the combo. I would practice executing this on the first screen of the game so you become used to the timing, as this will be your main way of killing enemies in the game.

 

Technically, you can go through the whole game without pulling off a full combo, but I think this would be extremely unlikely because it's one of the most efficient ways of killing enemies.

 

It's also worth noting that you can earn this trophy just doing a full combo on an empty screen. It doesn't need to be done against an enemy to obtain the trophy.

http://www.playstationtrophies.org/images/trophies/9029/e48.jpg What's this yellow thing? (B)

Get a coin

 

See I'm rich now

 

http://www.playstationtrophies.org/images/trophies/9029/99b.jpg I've a lot of these (S)

Get 20 coins

 

See I'm rich now

 

http://www.playstationtrophies.org/images/trophies/9029/49e.jpg I'm rich now (G)

Get 40 coins

 

Coins can be found throughout the game from two different sources: enemies drop them when they die, and there are also orange containers on a lot of screens (see the image below) which release coins when you destroy them. Make sure you grab them quickly, as they despawn if you leave them on the ground for too long without collecting them. You will most likely obtain this trophy midway through Stage 1.

 

This trophy is cumulative and so doesn't need to be done on the same playthrough. Therefore even if you collect 30 coins and die and then restart the game and collect 10 coins, this trophy will pop.

http://www.playstationtrophies.org/images/trophies/9029/cb0.jpg Recovering (B)

Buy 1 heart

 

See Over-Damaged

 

http://www.playstationtrophies.org/images/trophies/9029/43d.jpg Damaged (S)

Buy 3 hearts

 

See Over-Damaged

 

http://www.playstationtrophies.org/images/trophies/9029/ac8.jpg Over-Damaged (G)

Buy 5 hearts

 

Hearts are obtained from vending machines (see the image below) and allow you to restore your health. There's usually 2 or 3 of these vending machines in each stage. Hearts cost 20 coins on Easy mode, and 40 coins on Normal or Hard mode (although there's no point playing on Normal mode for the purposes of obtaining the Platinum). To buy a heart, walk up to a vending machine and press the :down: button. Once you've bought a total of 5 hearts, the trophy will pop.

 

This trophy is cumulative and so doesn't need to be done on the same playthrough. Therefore even if you buy 3 hearts and die, then restart the game and buy 2 more hearts - this trophy will pop.

http://www.playstationtrophies.org/images/trophies/9029/5de.jpg What kind of sorcery is this? (G)

Destroy a Laser Eye

 

Missable!

 

The screens you find 'Laser Eye' enemies on can be bypassed without killing them which is what makes this missable so make sure you kill at least one to obtain the trophy. They can be found throughout the game on every stage but I would recommend doing this on Stage 1 to get it out of the way as soon as possible (see the trophy tile for a visual for what they look like).

 

They fire a laser beam on a set pattern which they target straight at your character wherever you are on screen so simply hide under some cover until the laser stops, then hit the Laser Eye. Thankfully they're amongst the weakest enemies in the game and will die to a single sword hit.

 

http://www.playstationtrophies.org/images/trophies/9029/1aa.jpg Why is he hitting me with a tree? (B)

Defeat a bandana-enemy

 

Story related, can't be missed.

 

This is the first enemy you'll come across on Stage 1 (see the trophy tile above for a visual for what they look like). Run up to them and start your sword combo immediately to prevent them getting any attacks in. One full combo will kill the bandanna enemy and earn you the trophy.

 

This trophy is unmissable as any screen you find this enemy on requires you to kill them before progressing to the next screen.

 

http://www.playstationtrophies.org/images/trophies/9029/03d.jpg This is not a bow (B)

Defeat a rifle enemy

 

Story related, can't be missed.

 

This is the second enemy type you'll come across on Stage 1 (see the trophy tile above for a visual for what they look like). Wait for them to fire a shot and then jump over it and hit them twice. Two hits from your sword will kill the rifle enemy and earn you the trophy.

 

This trophy is unmissable as any screen you find this enemy on requires you to kill them before progressing to the next screen.

 

http://www.playstationtrophies.org/images/trophies/9029/eeb.jpg Hamburger-Time (S)

Defeat a fat enemy

 

Story related, can't be missed.

 

This is the first enemy type you'll come across on Stage 2 (see the trophy tile above for a visual for what they look like). Run up to them and start your sword combo immediately to prevent them getting an attack in. After one full combo, the enemy will try and hit you. Either roll with :circle: or jump straight up after your full combo with :cross: to avoid the hit, then do another full combo. The first two hits of the second full combo will kill the fat enemy.

 

This trophy is unmissable as any screen you find this enemy on requires you to kill them before progressing to the next screen.

 

http://www.playstationtrophies.org/images/trophies/9029/50b.jpg Exploding balls (B)

Defeat a bomb launcher enemy

 

Story related, can't be missed.

 

This is the third enemy type you'll come across on Stage 1 (see the trophy tile above for a visual for what they look like). Wait for them to fire a bomb, then run up to them and hit them twice. Two hits from your sword will kill the bomb launcher enemy and earn you the trophy.

 

This trophy is unmissable as any screen you find this enemy on requires you to kill them before progressing to the next screen.

 

http://www.playstationtrophies.org/images/trophies/9029/91c.jpg Is he even human? (S)

Defeat a cyborg-looking enemy

 

Story related, can't be missed.

 

This is the first enemy type you'll come across on Stage 2 after entering the 'underground' portion of the level (see the trophy tile above for a visual for what they look like). Run up to them and start your sword combo immediately to prevent them getting any attacks in. One full combo will kill the cyborg enemy and earn you the trophy.

 

This trophy is unmissable as any screen you find this enemy on requires you to kill them before progressing to the next screen.

 

http://www.playstationtrophies.org/images/trophies/9029/c34.jpg Lucky time! (S)

Play a slot game

 

Story related, can't be missed.

 

After you finish a stage, you will be able to play a slot machine game. If you get 3 hearts in a row, you increase your maximum HP by 1 heart. You get this trophy whether you win the game or not.

 

http://www.playstationtrophies.org/images/trophies/9029/6e4.jpg A two legged thing? (S)

Reach the 1st boss

 

Story related, can't be missed.

 

You get this trophy for entering the boss room on Stage 1. The boss doesn't need to be killed to earn this trophy, however there is a separate trophy for killing the Stage 1 boss.

Reach the 1st boss in Hard Difficulty

 

Story related, can't be missed.

 

You get this trophy for entering the boss room on Stage 1 while playing on Hard Difficulty. The boss doesn't need to be killed to earn this trophy, however there is a separate trophy for killing the Stage 1 boss.

 

There are a few slight differences when playing in Hard vs playing in Easy:

 

  • You have 7 Hearts on Easy but only 5 Hearts on Hard
  • Vending machines that restore your health cost 20 coins to use on Easy but 40 coins on Hard.
  • However you do get all abilities unlocked from Stage 1 in Hard (sword throw, dodge/roll etc.).

Defeat the 1st boss

 

Story related, can't be missed.

 

The first boss is a robot spider which will spend most of it's time on the ceiling. Here's how to kill it:

 

First Phase

 

  • The boss will walk on the ceiling dropping bombs on you from above. Make sure you avoid these by walking under them when you see an opportunity.
  • He will then fire a 'beach ball' type of projectile towards a wall. This will bounce off the wall and explode in the center of the floor. There will also be four circular projectiles that travel out from the explosion so jump over one if it's heading in your direction.
  • The boss will then drop down to the center of the screen. Make sure you're not underneath him when he drops down.
  • When he's on the ground he will be vulnerable - this is your opportunity to start doing damage! You should be able to get at least two full combos in, and possibly a couple more hits.

 

Second Phase

 

  • The boss will then jump up to the ceiling and walk to one of the top corners. He will fire laser beams that go straight down to the ground, and then travel horizontally towards you so make sure you're jumping over these. Stand in the opposite corner of the room to give yourself time to react.
  • The boss then moves across to the other corner of the ceiling and fires more laser beams. These are 'homing' laser beams and will travel straight for your character so like before stand on the opposite side of the room and focus on avoiding them.
  • Next, he'll again fire his 'beach ball' projectile, so again stand to one side of the room so you're not in range of the explosion when it goes off in the middle of the room, then jump over the smaller projectiles that come off the blast.
  • Finally, he will drop down to the middle of the room so run up to him and do two more full combos. This should be enough to defeat him and move you on to the next stage.

 

Please see my video below for how to defeat the Stage 1 boss:

http://www.playstationtrophies.org/images/trophies/9029/420.jpg I can now throw my sword (G)

Defeat the 2nd boss

 

Story related, can't be missed.

 

The second boss is a robot American football player with a jetpack (actually I have no idea if that's what he's meant to be but it's the best description I could come up with!. Here's how to kill it:

 

First Phase

 

  • The robot will fly to the top right corner of the screen and fire a 'homing blade' towards you which is too large to jump over. Use the :circle: button to roll through it which will allow you to avoid taking damage from it.
  • After doing this a few times, the robot will hover back and forth throwing bombs down at you. Walk or roll away from these. Some will explode immediately, some will take a few seconds to detonate.
  • The robot will then drop down to the ground and begin to charge towards you. You will need to roll through him with :circle: to avoid taking damage.
  • During the fourth roll, the robot will fall over in the middle of the screen. This is when he becomes vulnerable. You should be able to get 3 full combos in at this point.

 

Second Phase

 

  • Spiked walls will come from the sides at the start of the phase - stand in the middle to avoid taking damage from these.
  • The robot then mixes his 'blade throw' and 'bomb drop' moves together so dodge/walk to avoid each of these.
  • After a while, one spiked wall at a time will be added to these two moves so stand on the opposite side of the room to the spiked wall to avoid taking damage.
  • The robot will then drop down and charge towards you again like he did in the first phase. Again, after the fourth roll he will become vulnerable allowing you to get another 3 full combos in.

 

Third Phase

 

  • There are no new moves here, the robot will just be faster than before and when he charges, the spiked walls will also be active.
  • He should be defeated after one further full combo.
