Introduction:
This NA-only bundle contains all three Arkedo Series games released separately in EU.
'JUMP!' is a Retro Platform game where you must clear levels by collecting bombs before they explode while avoiding enemies and traps.
'SWAP!' is a Tile-matching Puzzle game similar to Bejeweld (PSN game) where you help King Kat get back to his castle.
'PIXEL!' is another Retro Platform game where you control Pix the Cat on an adventure through various pixelated worlds.

'JUMP!' and 'PIXEL!' are fairly easy to complete. The main difficulty will come from 'SWAP!' Challenge Mode.

Walkthrough:
Note: Since there are 3 different games in this bundle, you are free to choose the order in which you want to play them. In my opinion, difficulty-wise, 'JUMP!' is the easiest game and 'SWAP!' being the hardest.

JUMP!:
Step 1: Adventure Mode
There are no saves or continues in Adventure Mode so you will have to finish the 30 levels in one sitting. You will most likely not complete them on your first attempt, so you might as well try to complete 10 levels in a row without dying for JUMP! - Diehard, and get as many knife kills as you can for JUMP! - On Target.
During this step, you should earn:

 JUMP! - Diehard
 JUMP! - Landed!
 JUMP! - On target

Step 2: Challenge Mode
You will unlock Challenge Mode after you clear Adventure Mode. To complete this mode, you must finish 31 levels. You have to complete the first 30 levels to unlock the last one.
During this step, you should earn:

 JUMP! - Treasure hunter


SWAP!:
Step 1: Castle Mode
Finish the 5 chapters of Castle Mode to complete it. It mainly serves as a tutorial to get you used to all the game mechanics. You should also go for SWAP! - Maxi-match since it is easy to do with the very slow speed of the first chapter. 
During this step, you should earn:

 SWAP! - Claim your castle!
 SWAP! - Maxi-match

Step 2: Arcade Mode
You will need to reach 60,000 points in Arcade Mode to unlock its related trophy. During this step, you should earn:

 SWAP! - King of my castle

Step 3: Challenge Mode
You will unlock Challenge Mode after you clear Castle Mode. To complete this mode, you must finish 16 challenges of varying difficulties. 
During this step, you should earn:

 SWAP! - Unchallenged

Step 4: Clean Up
If by any chance you have not unlocked SWAP! - Treasure hunter yet, you should grind treasures in Challenge or Arcade Mode.
During this step, you should earn:

 SWAP! - Treasure hunter


PIXEL!:
Step 1: Story and collectibles
To save you the hassle of avoiding an additional second playthrough, you should take your time and explore the levels for the Useless Relics and hidden pixel mini-games. Also note that you must recollect them if you should die before reaching a checkpoint.
During this step, you should earn:

 PIXEL! - Broken ground
 PIXEL! - Coming home
 PIXEL! - That’s completely useless
 PIXEL! - Magnificent

Step 2: Clean up
If you missed a collectible or a mini-game, you can select a specific world at the main menu. If you still need kills for Fearless tomcat, check the trophy description for a good farming spot in the Trophy Guide section. 
During this step, you should earn:

 PIXEL! - Fearless tomcat

14 trophies ( 4  )

  • Complete the Adventure Mode.

    You will earn this trophy after finishing the 30th level of Adventure Mode. There are no saves or continues so youwill have to complete the mode in one sitting!

  • Complete the Challenge Mode.

    You will unlock the Challenge Mode after completing the Adventure Mode. The first 30 levels are the same as the ones in Adventure Mode, but you will need to collect every Coin, Diamond and Chest in each level to unlock level 31.

  • Achieve the Castle mode.

    You will earn this trophy after completing the 5 chapters of Adventure Mode. To complete a chapter you will have to reach a certain speed. Speed increases along with your points so the quickest way to finish chapters is by doing combos. 

  • Score more than 60,000 points in Arcade mode.

    hoose Easy difficulty in Arcade Mode and go for combos. Use time blocks to freeze the board and get some time to breathe. Use Thunder Blocks if you are getting too close to the top.

  • Complete all the challenges.

    This is the hardest trophy of the list. You will unlock the Challenge Mode after completing the Castle Mode. You will unlock this trophy after completing the 16 challenges of this mode. 

    Refer to my Challenges Guide for tips on how to complete every challenge.

  • Collect 1,000 treasures.

    his will most likely be the last trophy that you earn. Treasures are represented by Chest Blocks and appear on the board after reaching a certain point (depending on the mode and level). As with Coins and Diamonds, you collect treasures by making a chain right next to it.

    Keep playing in Arcade or Challenge Mode and you will eventually unlock it.

  • Complete all the levels.

    You will get this trophy after completing the 6 levels of the game. It will unlock during the ending.

  • Collect all the Useless Relics.

     

    "Useless Relics" are blocks hidden throughout levels. There are 3 of them in every level and can be spotted as they are in blocks looking like the negative of a normal block. To collect them, zoom on the block by holding then push  to enter a mini-game. Complete it and you will obtain the Relic.

    Puzzler made a detailed guide for the location of every Relic:
    Useless Relic Guide

    Note: If you die after collecting a Relic but before reaching a checkpoint, you will have to recollect it.

  • Kill 1000 foes.

    You kill enemies by jumping on them or by roaring at them ( when your roar bar is full). The kills are cumulative and unlike collectibles, the kill count is saved even if you die before reaching a checkpoint. If you have not unlocked this trophy after your first playthrough, you can either select levels and play them again or use the farming spot mentioned by Puzzler:

    In Level 2 (Caves), after the first checkpoint, 5 duck enemies will be conveniently placed in close proximity to each other. Use these enemies to fill your roar bar, and progress past the signpost that reads "New weapons have been shipped! That dirty cat will no longer jump on our heads!". After it, you will see 8 mushroom enemies lined up in a row. Roar at them then kill yourself.
    Rinse and repeat until you get the trophy.

  • Achieve all the hidden pixel mini-games.

    Pixel mini-games are hidden blocks with exclamation mark on them. To access a mini-game, zoom on the block by holding  then push . Finish it in time and you should get your health fully replenished. Otherwise, you will lose some health. There are a lot of these in the game but as long as you take your time to explore, you will find them.

    Note: If you die after finishing a mini-game but before reaching a checkpoint, you will have to redo it.

 

Secret trophies

  • Achieve 10 levels without dying.

    It is not mentioned but you have to achieve 10 levels in a row without dying in Adventure Mode to unlock this trophy. The easiest way is to do that with the first ten levels. On your first tries, I suggest that you keep going even if you die before your 10th level just so you can learn the levels pattern.

  • Kill 25 foes with the knife.

    "Knives" are only available in Adventure Mode. You throw them either left or right by holding  or  and pressing . Knives are rare so you should farm kills with the ones in level 6, 7 and 9. It's also worth mentioning that Bats cannot be killed by knives, and you will also need to lose all your lives to register your kills.

  • Match a 10 bricks shape.

    You need to create a shape containing 10 blocks of the same color. A 10 bricks shape will look like a 'T'. You will need a space of 7 blocks wide and 5 blocks tall. Choose a color. 

    On line 1, put a block of this color in column 4. 
    On line 2, put blocks in every column except column 4. 
    On line 3, 4 and 5, put a block in column 4. 

    Now you just need to slide the block from line 1, column 4 to make the 'T' shape and unlock the trophy.

    The setup is shown in page 4 of the 'How to Play' section of the game (available in Arcade Mode or by pressing  while in game). Here is an actual example just before making the shape:

    Note: You will have to do this for one of the challenges in Challenge Mode.

  • Destroy 200 breakable blocks.

    Breakable blocks have cracks on them and will disappear if you run over them (moving in a direction while holding ). There are plenty of these blocks throughout the game and you should unlock this trophy during your playthrough.
