Introduction
"Where The Wild Things Are" is a game based off of the hugely popular children's book and recent movie release. The game itself is mainly a platformer with basic combat that's geared more towards kids. The game itself consists of a main story consisting of 11 stages, plus includes a Village area where the Wild Things live. A good portion of the trophies in this game are collectible based and will require a little time and exploration to find them all. The remaining are mostly story and difficulty based, with a few very easy misc ones thrown in as well to round everything out. Platinuming this title should be extremely easy if you follow the walkthrough and guide.

Walkthrough

Step 1: Complete Game on HARD Difficulty
- When you start up your first game, select Hard difficulty and play through entire game on this level. During the playthrough, make sure that you focus on finding all the collectibles in each stage to unlock those trophies (make sure to check everywhere as you go through, break everything possible, destroy all the black goo piles you come across and water every plant you find as there are hidden items in all these spots). You should also be aiming to obtain all the Misc trophies in the intial run through as well as they are all possible and most will pop without any effort at all (ie kills trophies, swinging, etc). After finishing the game, you will unlock all 3 difficulty trophies and should have most of the trophies.

Step 2: Use Chapter Replay to Clean Up Missing Items in Levels
- After beating the game, you can use Chapter Replay to go back to any of the levels and obtain the items you missed in the first playthrough, as well as any missed Misc trophies. If you collect all of the "Geodes", you get the Treasure Hunter cheat that will show the location of hidden items and makes things alot easier.

Step 3: Cleanup Remaining Trophies in The Village
- In order to obtain all the items in the Village, you have to collect a certain number of items in the levels in order to unlock things around the village. Once you get everything in the levels, you will be free to finally get 100% of the items in the Village. After completing it, the platinum should be yours!

Conclusion
The main game itself is very easy to get through, even on Hard difficulty, making it a very easy game to platinum. The only difficult trophies are the collection ones as some of them are hidden pretty well, but even these aren't extremely difficult, just more time consuming for the most part. As long as you stick to the steps listed above, this should be extremely easy to finish pretty fast.

    Each chapter has a number of items that can be found. In order to complete all the collectible trophies, you must find all the items in all the chapters, as well as in the Wild Things village area. Collectibles are easy to spot as they have little stars circling around them (except the stars themselves, those are easy to spot on their own). If you pause the game in any of the areas, it will show you what items can be found in that chapter, along with how many there are total to be found. When playing through the chapters, make sure to check everywhere as you go through, break everything possible, destroy all the black goo piles you come across and water every plant you find as there are hidden items in all these spots. If you miss some in the initial playthrough, you can always use the "Replay Chapter" option from the main menu to go back and collect anything you missed.

    Tip: Once you aquire all the Geodes, you will unlock the treasure finder cheat that will show you where all the hidden items are and makes finishing up everything alot easier.

    Note: Certain items located in the Wild Things village area are only accessable after you collect a certain number of items in the chapters to unlock things back in the village. It's best to finish collecting everything in the levels, and then getting the ones in village as everything will be unlock ed there and possible to get.

  • Defeat 250 Fireflies

    This will come as you play the game normally as you will have to kill more than that just to get through everything. If for some strange reason you do not get this by the end of the game, just reload any chapter and find a firefly nest where they will respawn from after you kill them.

  • Defeat 25 Lightning Bugs

    This will come as you play the game normally as you will have to kill more than that just to get through everything. If for some strange reason you do not get this by the end of the game, just reload any chapter and find a firefly nest where they will respawn from after you kill them.

    Note: Lightning Bugs are the ones that look like cockroaches that shoot electricity (There are fireflies that use electricity, those are NOT Lightning Bugs).

  • Defeat 100 Shadow Creatures

    This will come as you play the game normally as you will have to kill way more than that just to get through everything. If for some strange reason you do not get this by the end of the game, just reload any chapter and find a firefly nest where they will respawn from after you kill them.

  • Earn 4 Hearts

    See "Ace Of Hearts"

  • Earn 7 Hearts

    See "Ace Of Hearts"

  • Earn 10 Hearts

    If are trying to do the game in 1 playthrough and are collecting & killing everything you come across, this shouldn't be a problem to get by the end of the game. After killing, destroying and collecting things, you get blue orbs, and after you collect so many, you get an extra heart added to your life. Once you get your 10th heart, the trophy is yours. If you don't have it by the end of the game, you can keep killing enemies that respawn to keep collecting orbs until you do.

  • Be eaten by three different Wild Things

    Easiest place to do this obviously is in the Wild Thing village. Run up to any Wild Thing, attack it and it will attack you back. Keep attacking it and letting it hit you until you only have one heart left. After that, hit it again and instead of hitting you back, it will eat you. Do this with 3 different Wild Things and the trophy is yours!

  • Allow three different Wild Things to sink into oblivion

    During the chapters, you will occasionally have to save certain Wild Things from sinking into a black goo. To get this trophy you have to let 3 different ones be sucked in without saving them. After the third one is down, the trophy should pop for you.

  • Power-swing from three bars in a row

    This will come in the very first level as there is a spot where you have to swing across a gap with 3 tree limbs in order to advance. (I actually got it to pop right before that by swinging across one branch, landing and then immediately jumping up to two more branches, so might get it even earlier).

  • Cause three different Wild Things to sneeze

    There are pollen plants located in different areas in the game. When you find one, get a pollen ball from it and throw it at a Wild Thing to make it sneeze. After you collect enough seeds, there will be one in the village and you can use that one since you will have the most Wild Things around you at then. Once you make three different Wild Things sneeze, the trophy should pop.

  • Defeat five Fireflies with one bomb

    There are many places to get this, but the first place where you meet the fireflies that have bombs is probably one of the easiest since there are 2 bomb dropping firefly nests and two regular ones in the area to respawn them if you dont' get it the first time. All you have to do is beat a large (bomb) firefly so it drops it's bomb, run around to attract more fireflies and run back by the bomb so they surround you and get blasted when it explodes. It took me 2-3 tries to get 5 before the bomb exploded as some few away just before it went off, but keep trying and it will come. There is also many other locations with large fireflies and multiple hives around as well, so take your pick of locations to get at.

  • Complete a Ride Carol mission without crashing

    Title says it all basically. Just complete a mission where you ride Carol without crashing (or dying basically). Just watch in front of you to what's coming up and make sure you either jump, slide or smash accordingly. The only tricky part is determining wether a falling tree is going to end up being a slide or jump, but you should still have enough time to figure it out before you have to do it.

  • Complete a Sailing mission without crashing

    Same as the last one, only this time you're on a boat going down the river. The river has rocks, ledges, whirlpools & black goo that can crash you. You can escape from both whirlpools & black goo by moving the right analog stick back and forth when you get caught, but be careful because alot of them are near rocks and ledges and when you break free from them, you don't always have alot of time to adjust course to steer clear of those. There are also stars to collect during them. I would suggest doing 2 runs for these, with one being to collect all the stars and one to focus on not crashing. You can do them all in one run, but it makes it more challenging as the stars are close to rocks/walls/whirlpools/etc most of the time. Also make sure you watch ledges with your mast, one at the very end got my mast and crashed me and I didn't know it could so keep an eye out for those as well.

  • Start a Dirt Clod Fight with multiple Wild Things

    When you are in the Wild Thing village, find the piles of stones near a group of Wild Things and throw the stones at them. After you hit them, they start throwing dirt at you. Run behind another Wild Thing so it gets hit and boom, your done!

  • Defeat 15 enemies in a row in melee without being hit

    This is the easiest completed in the first level as the enemies are minor. Just kill 15 enemies in a row with melee only attacks without getting hit (if you block the attack, it doesn't count as getting hit). If you having problems getting it due to getting hit during your attempts, an easy way to do it is to find a nest (if more than one, destroy all but one) and keep killing the one that spawns out of it until you get to 15. If you start attacking it when it gets out of the nest, it shouldn't even get an attack off, just don't destroy the nest.
