Introduction:

Tamiku is a single-screen retro inspired platformer that takes inspiration from such classics as Bubble-Bobble and Balloon Fight. This game sees you take control of Tamiku, an alien who likes destroying balloons but took things too far one day and accidentally destroyed his Homeworld so now it's up to you to help him get over this addiction and find something safer to do with his time. The controls are as simple as they come, just use the ls.png to move Tamiku around and drop to the platforms below him but press cross.png to jump to the platform above you or mash it to explode a red balloon when you find one. Depending on your skill and experiance with this type of game, you will have the Platinum in anywhere from 15-30mins.

Notes:
  • There are EU, NA, Asia and JP stacks available.
  • There are no cheats available and no additional controllers are required (though it's a real shame there's no 2 player option).
  • Exiting to the Main Menu will wipe all of your progress so for safety, don't press the :options: button then you won't have a chance to accidentally choose the "Main Menu" option.
  • You only have 3 lives but have infinite continues so don't worry about dying. Also note that dying will wipe your score and reset your progress for the stage you're currently on but each level only takes a few minutes to complete so having to redo a stage from scratch is just a minor inconvenience.
  • There are no score related trophies so don't worry about having your score wiped if/when you die.

Walkthrough:

Step 1: Finish the game

This is the only step you should need but if for some reason you manage to lose your progress, move onto Step 2 and take things from there.

12 trophies ( 11  )

  • Get all other trophies.

    Earn all of the other trophies to get this one. Note: For those of you who are unfamiliar with this genre, some platforms will let you walk offscreen and reappear on the opposite side of the stage so use that to your advantage when in a sticky situation.

    WARNING: Exiting to the Main Menu will wipe all your progress so for safety, don't press the :options: button then you won't have a chance to accidentally choose the "Main Menu" option.
  • Explode a blue balloon.

    You have to explode all the blue balloons in each stage in order to finish it, therefore this will come naturally. To explode a blue balloon, just walk into it then this trophy will pop.
  • Explode a red balloon

    You have to explode all the red balloons in each stage in order to finish them, therefore this will come naturally. To explode a red balloon, stand in front of it and mash cross.png until it blows up.
  • Complete the BARREL FACTORY stage.

    The BARREL FACTORY is Stage 1.

    Enemies:

    Green Slimes
    A Robot
    Killer Flames

    The only enemy you have to watchout for is the Killer Flame, because he moves really fast and has the ability to fly straight through platforms.
  • Complete the LIMBO MAZE stage.

    The LIMBO MAZE is Stage 2.

    Enemies:

    Yellow Ghosts
    A Red Ghost

    The Red Ghost is the only enemy you need to watch out for, because he will follow you around the stage and make it difficult to explode the red balloons.
  • Complete the UNDERGROUND GARDEN stage.

    The UNDERGROUND GARDEN is Stage 3.

    Enemies:

    Flying Golden Ducks
    Flaming Blue Masks
    A Bounching Red Guy with a Helmet

    The Flaming Blue Masks are the sole irritiation in this stage because they can move up and down, thus potentially putting you in an awkward situation if you happen to get trapped between them and another enemy in a spot where there's no escape.
  • Complete the WHITE LAND stage.

    The WHITE LAND is Stage 4.

    Enemies:

    Snowballs
    Demons

    The Snowballs can use the same holes you can do, therefore you have to carefully time your platform transistions so you don't get squashed by them.
  • Complete the BOMB FIELD stage.

    The BOMB FIELD is Stage 5.

    Enemies:

    Yellow Clockwork Robots
    Robot Buldodzers
    Exploding Bombs

    The Exploding Bombs are really dangerous, because of their unpredictability as to which directions the blastwaves will go so make sure you're as far away from them as possible when they detonate.
  • Complete the THIEF'S MINE stage.

    The THIEF'S MINE is Stage 6.

    Enemies:

    Minecarts (both manned and unmanned)
    A Flaming Green Mask

    The Flaming Green Mask is a major headache because it shoots a green orb that can move through objects and hit you from any angle so keep moving.
  • Complete the DEVILAND PARK stage.

    DEVILAND PARK is Stage 7.

    Enemies:

    Green Slimes
    A Purple Slime
    Drankula
    A Skeleton

    Drankula and the Skeleton are the main threats in this stage, because Drankula fires a projectile that can hit you from any angle and the Skeletons will fire a Bone protectile straight up which also has the ability to go through objects. Together these guys make for a dangerous duo if both appear at the same time and fire in your direction so do your best to dodge them.
  • Complete the MONSTERS' CAVE stage.

    The MONSTERS' CAVE is Stage 8 and the last one needed for the Platinum. The game cycles round to Stage 1 again after you finish Stage 8 for the first time but if all you want is the Plat, you can quit to the Main Menu once the trophy has popped.

    Enemies:

    Ghosts
    A Mummy
    Floating Green Orbs
    A Robot on a Spring

    To be honest, every enemy in this stage is a pain to deal with because of how many there are and the fact they're always in the wrong place at the wrong time. Practice makes perfect here.
  • Complete a BONUS LEVEL.

    The first BONUS LEVEL you will come to is after completing Stage 4: WHITE LAND. To complete a BONUS LEVEL, all you have to do is to pop the various balloons by using the ls.png to move Tamiku around and pressing cross.png to make him go higher when needed. The trophy will pop once you've run out of balloons.
