This game is intended for a younger audience and should pose no difficulty to obtain the platinum. The only thing you have to concern yourself with is actually collecting all the collectibles. However with the collectible guide provided by LordMaceX, this is a walk in the park (See Elle Badge for a link to the collectible guide). This is not a very deep game so I recommend just using the collectible guide from the very start, unless you're playing co-operatively with a younger person. In this case, just let them have fun, since even they should find it fairly straight forward. Either way, you don't have to worry since you can go back and get all the collectibles you need afterwards through level select. Enjoy the easy Platinum.

43 trophies ( 33  3  )

  • Unlock every Trophy in the game.

    Just like it reads, unlock all the other trophies and this one will pop.

  • Defeat the first wave of combat planes.

    This trophy will unlock after you clear level 1.

  • Complete the level to start Carl's journey to Paradise Falls.

    This trophy will unlock after you clear level 2.

  • Find Kevin before Muntz does.

    This trophy will unlock when you clear level 3.

  • Defeat the giant Anaconda.

    This trophy will unlock after you clear level 4.

  • Find the voice in the mist.

    This trophy will unlock after you clear level 5.

  • Meet the pack: Alpha, Beta, and Gamma.

    This trophy will unlock after you clear level 6.

  • Avoid being captured by Muntz's dogs.

    This trophy will unlock after you clear level 7.

  • Defeat the giant Crocodile.

    This trophy will unlock after you clear level 8.

  • Help Carl get his house to the top of Paradise Falls.

    This will unlock after you clear level 9.

  • Free Russell and Kevin, then escape the Dirigible.

    This trophy will unlock after you clear level 10.

  • Defeat Muntz's canine squadron in the skies above Paradise Falls.

    This trophy is unlock after you clear level 11.

  • Defeat either the giant Anaconda or Crocodile with 2 players.

    I did this on the crocodile by myself. It would have been a lot easier (and much more fun) with a friend. I've been recently informed that you can not reassign and enter the game on the first controller. That is, this trophy requires two controllers.

  • Defeat the first plane in the battle over Paradise Falls.

    This will unlock after you shoot down your first plane in level 1.

  • Unlock the Bonus Art.

    See Ellie Badge

  • Use Russell's Canteen three times.

    Russell's canteen replenishes health. You will rarely need to use it apart from acquiring this trophy. There are pick-ups that fill up the canteen (which actually looks like a water bottle). Just use it three times for the trophy to pop. The uses can be spread out throughout the game.

  • Catch or squash 100 Dio Bugs or Butterflies.

    Dio bugs are the things that crawl around on the floor that look like lady bugs, except that they can be a range of different colors. If you play as Russell, you catch the bugs/butterflies. You squash as Carl. I think it's actually harder to catch these things. So, I prefer using Carl.

  • Locate Kevin for the first time.

    This trophy will pop in level 3. Meeting Kevin is required. So, you cannot miss this trophy.

  • Successfully defend against 10 dog ambushes.

    This may not unlock if you're defending with Russell so I'd use Carl just to be safe, just fight off 10 dogs and the trophy will pop. As usual, you do not need to do this in one sitting. You should have this by level 7.

  • Survive against the hungry Piranhas.

    In level 6, you will come to (several) pools that have piranhas in them, just swim past them to safe land without getting hit and the trophy will pop.

  • Find the picture-perfect view of Paradise Falls.

    In level 9, you will come to a "bat cave" portion where you have to run to various sunlit spots in order avoid attacking bats. Upon exiting, go towards the waterfall (to the left) and stand at the edge of the cliff.

  • Collect all varieties of each Butterfly and Dio Bug in the game.

    See Ellie Badge

  • Break open 10 watermelons.

    Watermelons are only found in level 7, they are fairly easy to spot. If you're having difficulty finding them, use the link to the collectible guide found under the Ellie Badge trophy.

  • Use Carl's House to float across all the chasms in the game.


    This is the one missable trophy in the game, If you do not go for all the collectibles, then you may miss a chasm. However, you should be going for the Ellie Badge which requires that you get all the collectibles. This will unlock in level 7, provided you've floated across all the chasms.

  • Use Russell's key to cut through three items in the game.

    This trophy that can't be missed. You must use Russell's key to advance at various stages in the game. You will most likely get this trophy in level 3.

  • Tie off the house so it doesn't float away.

    This is part of the story progression and cannot be missed. This trophy will unlock in level 5.

  • Use Russell's Bugle three times.

    This is a power up for Russell that has him "stun" enemies with the noise of his bugle, just use the power three times. You can spread the use throughout the game if you like.

  • Play through any previously completed level in Story Mode.

    Just play throught the any level again after you've beaten the game. I recommend level 1, since it's the shortest.

  • Dig up all of the hidden bones using Dug.

    Occasionally in this game a dog named Dug will be with you and you have the option to control him. When he's around, there will be "dig" spots. These look like patches on the ground. Search these dig spots for Dug's bones. The trophy should pop after last dig spot in level 9. Refer to the collectible guide if you're having trouble finding these. The link is provided under the Ellie Badge trophy.

  • Swim through all of the areas that have water.

    Another trophy that can't be missed, since you are forced to go through all the "water areas". This will unlock in level 8.

  • Complete any Story Mode level without failing or quitting.

    Since plane control in this game is fairly poor, I recommend doing this on level 2. It is possible to fall to your death or loose all your health, but with patience this should be a cake-walk.

  • Find and collect all of the Artifacts.

    See Ellie Badge.

  • Collect all of Carl's Mementos.

    See Ellie Badge.

  • Find and collect the Gold Jaguar.

    After you free Russell in level 10, you will come to a point where you have to move a museum case. If you go to the left, you will advance the game but If you go right you will find the statue.

  • Collect 6000 Merit Badges in the game to become the Merit Badge Champion.

    Merit badges are scattered throughout the game, you also get them from breaking stuff and squashing/collecting bugs or butterflies. You will want to collect every one you see not only for this trophy but because these are required to unlock the various Quest Cards.

  • Free your buddy from five Snare Traps.

    Snare traps can be found in level 3. These are "natural" booby traps that ensnare you and dangle you from the ground. Just get caught in these 5 times and have your partner free you. If you're playing solo, switch to the other character. If you're playing co-op, have your friend free you.

  • Break apart at least 500 objects.

    Just attack every breakable object you see and you should get it by Level 8.

  • Squish 10 Wasps and Spiders.

    Unlike bugs and butterflies, wasps and spiders are enemies and can hurt you. Just squish them as you encounter them. Note: with wasps, you have to "soften" them up with Carl's hearing-aid power or Russell's bugle power before you can squish them.

  • Unlock the extra Multiplayer Combat Maps.

    See Ellie Badge

  • Complete all of the Quest Cards for a special badge.

    You unlock Quest Cards as you collect merit badges. Each Quest Card has requirements to unlock game features (e.g. bonus art, multiplayer maps). Some of the requirements are to get collectibles. Others are to kill a certain bug type a certain number of times. To see the quest cards, just pause and select them. Also, in the pause screen you will see what types of bugs are available on the level that you are currently playing and what collectibles you are missing. Here is a link to the collectibles guide by LordMaceX: LINK


Secret trophies

  • Make sure to put out your campfire.

    Right at the outset of level 6 you are standing just below your campfire. Attack it to put it out.

  • Find the hidden cave in A Voice in the Mist.

    This cave is located in level 5 and the location is after the part where you have to tie the house down. You will do a Carl-Russell "co-op" jump (you do not need two players) and encounter some enemy flowers. The path to the cave is down and to the right.

  • Access the Multiplayer game menu.

    Just go to the multiplayer menu. Possibly the easiest trophy to get in this game. I can't recall if you can access this menu right away. But certainly after clearing level 3 this option becomes available from the title screen.
