Overview:Introduction:

Welcome to Slipstream, simple, one-man-made, pixel art, racing/drifting game with an easy platinum. Make no mistake - this is not another easy-plat-crap, more like enjoyable indie game with AWESOME music. It's very straightforward, so I'm not gonna elaborate on how to play it here, as there's a short tutorial at the beginning that you should complete to get familiar with all the mechanics. Three more things: First - you can play whichever difficulty you like - I started on Light (gets very boring quick), but as soon as I got the hang of drifting I switched to Medium. Second - If you can't cope with the pace of the game, you can tone it down in options (I've put it on 75% and it was cool). Third - you can use automatic drifting (every sharp turn you take becomes a drift) but personally I went with manual drifting (with use of brakes/l2.png), it just feels like you're having way more control with the manual option, so I recommend this one. Also make sure to have Rival Messages ON, some of them are funny & they add to overall atmosphere

Do note that all the trophies pop during post-race summary, along with the in-game trophies, not when you actually complete the given requirment, so don't fret if something doesn't pop immediately

Walkthrough:

Step1: Tutorial & Grand Tour Mode
In this step you will learn how the game works & then take on the most time consuming element of the game which is Grand Tour Mode (race along 5 stages with branching routes & traffic). It will take 16 races, 5 stages each. Since you're gonna have so many races, be sure to use every available car at least once. You will also have to beat all the rivals (named opponents with a personal avatar) in a single run, as well as all the rivals available in the game & complete at least 1 clean stage.

After this step you should unlock:

Five Nights trophy_silver.png 
Highway Star trophy_silver.png 
Grand Touring trophy_silver.png 
No Road Not Taken trophy_gold.png 
Perfectionist I trophy_gold.png 
Intangible trophy_gold.png 
Unrivaled trophy_silver.png 
Versatile trophy_bronze.png 
Supersonic trophy_silver.png


Step2: Grand Prix Mode & unlocking secret tracks
In this step you will be unlocking all Grand Prix Mode trophies. This mode consist of 4 championships (no traffic, just racers) with optional car tuning. The only difference between championships are the tracks you will race on, no difficulty spike etc, but do note that you have to win every race in all 4 championships for the 2 corresponding trophies.

After this step you will unlock all of the secret tracks, and the below trophies:
Ruby Cup trophy_silver.png 
Sapphire Cup trophy_silver.png 
Emerald Cup trophy_silver.png 
Diamond Cup trophy_gold.png 
Invincible trophy_silver.png 
Perfectionist II trophy_gold.png 
Minimalist trophy_bronze.png 


Step 3: Cannonball & Battle Royale cleanup
Cannonball is a custom race in which you can setup number of options & Battle Royale is an elimination race with named opponents along randomized stages. There are a few trophies connected to these modes, but this step will be rather short compared to previous ones.

After this you will unlock:
Trophy Dash trophy_bronze.png 
Unchallenged trophy_silver.png 
Endurance Rally trophy_gold.png 
All Night Long trophy_bronze.png 
Full of Secrets trophy_bronze.png 
Chicken Dinner trophy_silver.png

Secret trophies

  • Complete every (non-Blue Hour) track in the game.

    You will get this naturally when going for Grand Tour trophies. Trophy description is kinda misleading, because unlockable/secret tracks do not count towards this, just the base game tracks.
  • Complete all possible routes in Grand Tour Mode.

    Each run of Grand Tour mode consists of 5 stages at different locations, with rivals, traffic & branching routes at the end of each stage. For this trophy you will have to take all the possible combinations of routes available towards the 5 exits (final stages), which means completing 16 runs of this mode. It's best to copy the below list to your computer/phone's notepad to keep track of what you already completed. Make a habit of beating every rival you come across at each stage for Highway Star trophy_silver.png & Perfectionist I trophy_gold.png. Here are all possible combinations, after completing which this trophy will pop:
    1. Morning City --> Marble Garden --> Ice Cap --> Valley of the Kings --> Akagiyama
    2. Morning City --> Marble Garden --> Ice Cap --> Valley of the Kings --> Highgate Cemetery
    3. Morning City --> Marble Garden --> Ice Cap --> Emerald Hills --> Highgate Cemetery
    4. Morning City --> Marble Garden --> Ice Cap --> Emerald Hills --> Radical City
    5. Morning City --> Marble Garden --> Villa Rica --> Emerald Hills --> Highgate Cemetery
    6. Morning City --> Marble Garden --> Villa Rica --> Emerald Hills --> Radical City
    7. Morning City --> Marble Garden --> Villa Rica --> Monument Valley --> Radical City
    8. Morning City --> Marble Garden --> Villa Rica --> Monument Valley --> Neon City
    9. Morning City --> Resort Island --> Villa Rica --> Emerald Hills --> Highgate Cemetery
    10. Morning City --> Resort Island --> Villa Rica --> Emerald Hills --> Radical City
    11. Morning City --> Resort Island --> Villa Rica --> Monument Valley --> Radical City
    12. Morning City --> Resort Island --> Villa Rica --> Monument Valley --> Neon City
    13. Morning City --> Resort Island --> Chemical Plant --> Monument Valley --> Radical City
    14. Morning City --> Resort Island --> Chemical Plant --> Monument Valley --> Neon City
    15. Morning City --> Resort Island --> Chemical Plant --> Oil Ocean --> Neon City
    16. Morning City --> Resort Island --> Chemical Plant --> Oil Ocean --> Acropolis
  • Defeat all the rivals on the way to each exit in Grand Tour Mode.

    On your way towards No Road Not Taken trophy_gold.png you will encounter rivals (named opponents with their own avatar). Make a habit of beating each one of them at every stage (there will be a prompt saying YOU WON at the finish of each stage when done correctly). It's easy to beat them on Light difficulty, but if you don't you can always restart.
  • Win the Diamond Cup.

    Cups are series of championship, lap races with no traffic & optional car tuning. Every Cup consists of 5 races (Acts), 4 laps each. The only difference between cups are tracks, there's no difficulty spike, although this mode has 2 variations
    • Stock Cars - unmodified versions of each car with fixed stats, as seen in Grand Tour mode. Tuning options are blocked in this mode & you only race for championship points, no cash prizes. This is the more simple/easier version of Cups
    • Custom Cars - option to modify cars is added. You race for points & cash (you start every Cup with 1000$) which you can then spend on engine (top speed), gearbox (acceleration) & tires (handling). If you decide to play this mode, concentrate on engine & tires, rather than gearbox. Do note that this mode is harder, because your car will be slower & your tuning progress is reset after finishing each cup. With the right tuning it's not as hard as it seems though
    It doesn't really matter which mode you pick, as the progress is shared (cups won with Stock/Custom Cars are marked as won in both categories), so you can alternate freely between them if you like. Completing the Ruby, Sapphire & Emerald Cups unlocks this final Diamond Cup, which consists of unlockable bonus tracks that become freely available in custom modes after winning entire Diamond Cup
  • Win all the races in any (non-Blue Hour) cup in Grand Prix Mode.

    See Perfectionist II trophy_gold.png for more details
  • Win all the non-Blue Hour races in every cup in Grand Prix Mode.

    As the description says, you will have to win every race when going for Ruby Cup trophy_silver.png, Sapphire Cup trophy_silver.png , Emerald Cup trophy_silver.png & Diamond Cup trophy_gold.png . Unlike other modes Cups do not have a restart option, although restarting is available but kinda hidden. If it looks like you're going to loose just quit the race before it ends & then when you choose to continue a Cup you will be returned back to pre-race/tuning menu again
  • Defeat every rival character in Grand Tour or Cannonball.

    You will have to beat every named opponent at least once for this trophy. This will come naturally on your way to No Road Not Taken trophy_gold.png / Perfectionist I trophy_gold.png .
  • Win a race with each of the (non-Blue Hour) cars in any mode, stock settings.

    Make sure to pick different cars when going through 16 Grand Tour runs & this will be one of first trophies you'll unlock. All cars are equally good & fun to drive, they just have their stranghts & weaknesses. Lynx is the fastest, but I enjoyed the handling-oriented models more tbh. Just experiment & have fun
  • Stay on the slipstream for 15 seconds or more in any mode.

    This will probably come naturally, but if not, there are 2 easy methods:
    • In Grand Tour mode, rear-end a traffic vehicle at max speed on a straight road, it will give him a solid boost & slow you down, giving you a lot of time in his slipstream. You can either jump between other traffic vehicles (without breaking the "slipstream" prompt) to keep the timer going, or slow down to stay behind them for just a bit longer
    • In Cups, just pick Custom Cars mode & Light difficulty. All cars (including yours) will be very slow here, meaning there's more time to slipstream behind them, but do note, that they rarely go in a straight line as traffic cars do, so the first method can be easier to perform
  • Win a custom car race with $500 or less spent on upgrades.

    Pick any cup & choose Custom Cars mode. You start every cup with a 1000$ budget, so just tune up your car with any amount of money below the 500$ mark (I suggest engine/tires) & win for the trophy to pop. Note that the starting Act of every Cup with untuned/lightly tuned car will be more difficult than other modes, so pick Light difficulty if you're having trouble winning here
  • Complete a stage in Grand Tour Mode without touching anything.

    Every run of Grand Tour mode consists of 5 stages, every stage taking you through different world/track. You need to have a clean run through at least one stage for this trophy to unlock, that means not hitting traffic/opponents/things on both sides of the road. This won't happen often, but you should get this naturally while going for other Grand Tour trophies. The easiest stage to get this on is Morning City (starting event for every run of Grand Tour mode) as there are no combined bends here
  • Win a Cannonball race of at least 15 stages.

    Just setup a Cannonball Race of any 15 stages you like & win it to get this trophy. Note that this can be combined with Unchallenged trophy_silver.png (Rivals should be switched ON), All Night Long trophy_bronze.png & Full of Secrets trophy_bronze.png so you can get 4 trophies with one run
  • Win a Cannonball (non-Blue Hour) race of all night tracks, in any order.

    Combine this with Endurance Rally trophy_gold.png to be more time-effective. Night tracks are:
    • Neon City
    • Radical City
    • Acropolis
    • Highgate Cementery
    • Akagiyama
  • Win a Cannonball race of all secret tracks, in any order.

    Combine this with Endurance Rally trophy_gold.png to be more time-effective. Secret tracks (unlocked after winning the final, Diamond Cup) are:
    • Aquatic Ruins
    • Virtual Plaza
    • Mystic Cave
    • Polygon Peaks
    • Stardust Speedway
