[top]Roadmap

1. Complete the Campaign

Start off by completing the 2 mandatory Tutorials and the 20 Campaign levels that are spread out over 5 albums. You don't need to collect all of the notes to get Campaign Complete. You also don't need to worry about the time it takes you to complete a level or how many times you die. Just enjoy yourself as the real challenge will come later!

2. Complete Beat School

Next, work on completing Beat School. It is located in the Editor section. In this mode you will need to recreate rhythms and sounds by placing notes in the correct spots. If you are having any trouble, I have the answers in spoilers under each trophy description.

3. Complete Death Mode

The last step is to complete Death Mode. This is the most challenging step as you will have to collect a certain amount of notes in a specified time while avoiding obstacles. If you are struggling on any of them see the strategy and video for each particular one in the trophy guide below. Also remember that practice makes perfect. It also seems like the game tries to help you out every once in a while and places notes closer, which can really help if you're having trouble!

4. Enjoy your shiny new !

You cannot bounce on the same head twice in a row or you will bounce too high and hit the red ceiling and die. The best strategy for this level is to remember that the best route to the note is not always the shortest. Sometimes you will need to bounce away from the note first so that you don't bounce on the same head twice.

To unlock this trophy, you will need to collect 18 notes in 27 seconds while jumping back and forth across 4 platforms that have an electric current going up them. I recommend holding down on or the whole time as it will help increase your speed. Try to jump across the platforms as quickly as you can, but if you see that the platform you're about to jump on has electricity heading toward the top wait on the platform you're on until it's safe. This will take some practice to get the rhythm right but after several tries you will get the hang of it.

I don't recommend holding it down while jumping though as it seems to affect the jumping too much.

I noticed that every few tries the notes will appear around the same platform several times in a row, which can really help decrease your time. I recommend trying until you get one of these lucky tries as it will be a lot faster than other times.

Death Mode: Invaderoids

If you are going from bottom to top press repeatedly to go faster. If you need to go from the top to the bottom hold or to go faster. I have also noticed that every few plays the pattern in which the notes appear are more generous and can really help save some time. If you can't get it right away keep trying until you get one of these lucky patterns and you will get it.

The key to this one is to jump at the correct time while also moving quickly to collect the notes. Use the sound as a guide on when to jump.
