[top]Tips & Strategies

Tips: If you need only 1 gem to 110% a level, you can just collect it and quit the level, your gem will still be saved. It will not show you that you have collected it in the World Map, but in reality if you just choose another level and go back to the World Map, you will see the gem you collected is there.


[top]Roadmap

Step 1, Just Play: Simply play the game on any difficulty and collect as much as you can while going through. You will need to replay every level for trials and on Paladin Difficulty anyways, so use this first playthrough to enjoy the game and get the most out of it.

Step 2, Trial & Difficulty: Start playing on Paladin. This shouldn't be an issue as you can buy 2 very powerful magic spells that will do tons of damage and this will make things much easier. 80% of the trials are no problem to achieve, even whilst playing on Paladin. I used this step to complete most trials and I beat all the game on paladin. Tip: If you can't beat a trial on Paladin, just beat the level normally and do the trial later on Easy. I finished this Step with all levels beaten on Paladin and still had 1 or 2 Trials to complete. You should also continue collecting gems in this play through; some will be in plain sight but you might have missed them.

Step 3, The Cleanup : Mop up the rest of the trophies. I had around 15 gems left in this step, but it only took me 1hour to collect all of them, using the provided guide. Complete any other Trials you could have missed and the is yours!



[top]Trophies

[top]
Platinum Trophy
Unlock all Trophies

Obtained by acquiring all other trophies in the game.

[top]
Chapter I
Defeat the Ice Titan

For this trophy, you must complete all levels in Chapter One and defeat the boss of the chapter, the Ice Titan. He is a Shadow of the Colossus styled fight where you must climb up higher and higher and take out specific points on his body. Not overly difficult, but you must really pay attention to the prompts and his movements as he'll try and shake you off and at times, grab you and throw you off.

At the beginning, you'll have to run down a cave area and out onto a frozen lake where he will appear. He will smash the ground and cause a ring of icicles to encircle you until you get close enough to reach him. Then he'll slam down and get his arm stuck in the ice. This is your chance to climb up onto him and destroy the special points on his body.

You hold on when he shakes by holding . And you just need to hit and the left analog stick in the direction you want to go, when dodging his grabbing attacks.

[top]
Chapter II
Get the Dark Gauntlet

For this trophy, you must complete all levels in Chapter Two and defeat the boss of the chapter, the Black Knight. Yes, you may feel bad cause you didn't mean to bring harm to this duo that was helping you, but ya did.. and now you must pay the piper... or the Knight rather . He's a tough SoB, but if you utilize proper dodging and evasion skills, should be fine. Use your Shadown magic whenever you can to dish out some damage AND use light magic when your health gets a little low.

Be wary of his fire attacks AND halfway through the battle, he stab his sword in the ground Old Hero style and summon a black oil creature that will grab and hold you if it gets underneath Gabriel. However, you can break free by button mashing the proper command, but most likely, you'll just get hit by the Black Knight.

Just keep evading and attack when you can and rolling around him and swinging whilst you do and all will be fine. After you defeat him, you will receive the Dark Gauntlet which allows you to punch enemies and smash through certain walls and structures.

[top]
Chapter III
Acquire the power of the first Dark Lord

For this trophy you must complete the two levels in Chapter Three AND defeat the boss of the chapter, the Lycanthrope Dark Lord. He's not much of a threat as long as you evade left and right and attack a few times. Just repeat this over and over and finally he'll transform into his more wolfy state.

Here he has a different set of attacks, but much easier despite him being quicker to evade from. You'll make short work of this form and then some statues around the area will light up that you have to destroy.

Finish that and then the button sequences that follow and you will emerge victorious. You'll now have the Cyclone Boots relic which allows you to jump a little further and sprint faster.

[top]
Chapter IV
Kill the Crow Witch

For this trophy, you must complete the two levels in Chapter Four and defeat the boss of the chapter, the Crow Witch. She's not much of a boss, mostly button sequences and throwing back eggs at her and following prompts from then on. She'll fall and you attack a few times and repeat.

However, when you miss grabbing the eggs as she throws about three out at once, they'll hatch into giant crow men and are a real pain. They can shoot fire breath and peck you to death. They are the only issue with this boss, as they have a decent bit of health and do some damage when they team up on you.

Kill them and repeat the egg grabbing and throwing back at her and you'll be finished in no time.

[top]
Chapter V
Gain access to the Vampire Castle

For this trophy, you must complete all levels in Chapter Five. The last level, however, does not have a final boss per say such as the others do ... only a simple puzzle of sorts.

You will get to a long hallway with a spike floor trap. Gather the throwing daggers next to the switch and just run down the hallway. At the end, use your shadow magic and throw a dagger at the switch. The gate will open and you can climb out and complete this level.

DO NOTE, that punching the switch will cause the floor trap to become active and you'll have to use your dash ability to get across. The gate shuts then and you have to use daggers & shadow magic(a regular dagger isn't enough to keep gate open) so best to not even mess with the switch till you are across.

[top]
Chapter VI
Leave the Refectory with the Butcher's Key

For this trophy, you must complete all levels in Chapter Six and defeat the Butcher to acquire a special key to proceed further.

The Butcher doesn't use many special attacks, just standard swipes with a butcher knife and other weapons he can pick up around the kitchen area. Also, he can eat and recover health so tear into him when you see this happening. Another thing is towards the end, he'll become invincible and will put a bowl on his head as a helmet.

You will need to jump up and attack the bowl to daze him now. Follow the prompts and then watch as Gabriel rips him a knew one. Backtrack to the door in previous room to get a gem and then back to the locked door near beginning up the steps and you will complete Chapter Six.

[top]
Chapter VII
Survive the encounter with Laura

For this trophy you will need to complete the few levels in Chapter Seven and then in the last level of the chapter, defeat the creatures of Laura after solving the lens puzzle to open the doorway.

They are not that difficult, just in numbers and a few more join in after you kill a few. Just keep spamming your favorite attacks and rolling to evade. Use fairies OR your dark crystal if you'd like and this will be over in no time.

As for the puzzle, you will need to activate your shadow magic and then use the L2 dash ability to light up each design in the floors in each different room. You start with only the red lens so use it to open the door, complete this section and get next lens and repeat until you have them all. Explore a bit and then use the Red and Blue lens to open the gateway to the boss section and then level completion.

[top]
Chapter VIII
Acquire the power of the second Dark Lord

For this trophy, you will need to complete every level in Chapter Eight and then defeat the chapter boss, The Vampire Queen.

This battle takes a few sections to complete. The first one you will be battling several vampire warriors and dodging a blast every so often from the queen herself. THEN she transforms and comes down to fight you herself. Just evade her swipes and run away when she flies into the air as she'll perform a shock attack directly underneath with a small blast radius (no shockwave so no need to jump-I kept doing this out of habit).

Next after you take down her health bar, you'll need to run over as she's glowing to start the next and final section of the battle, the button press sequence :S. For this just watch and enjoy the video and time them as need be. IF you mess up, you'll die and start right back at beginning of scene so no worries of replaying entire level.

You'll also acquire the relic which grants double jump(FINAFUCKINGLY)

[top]
Chapter IX
Persuade Baba Yaga to open a portal to the Necromancer area

For this trophy, you will need to complete the three levels in Chapter Nine and complete the music box puzzle to get the blue rose. This is what Baba Yaga wants in trade for opening up portal to necromancer Area for you.

Here is the easiest solution for the puzzle. Start off by playing music box with green notes in first slot as set up. You'll run down the hallway to the left with it. Grab the red note from here then step into the portal to return to beginning.

NOW use music note again placing red note in front slot and play. Go down the path to the right this time, Then go left and down the path that opens from the green note. Here you will grab the purple note. Step into portal and return to beginning.

Next use the red note first still, then the purple note, then green. Go back down the hallway to the right, but this time go towards the path to the right once across the gap here. You'll have to roll, as it took me a few times to figure this out. From here you'll grab the yellow note and return to beginning.

Go and rearrange the notes again, keeping red first, then put the yellow one, and rest don't really matter yet. Play music and go straight ahead this time. You'll jump across gap and then once across, go to the left, you'll have some flames, watch them and dash across like you do for the spike floor/wall traps. You'll now find the blue music note. Return to the beginning from portal.

NOW set it this way FIRST: RED, BLUE, PURPLE, YELLOW . This will lead you to a gem .
NOW when you want to leave and finish section OR don't feel like chancing it the first time even,
SET IT: RED, BLUE, PURPLE, GREEN and follow this to the end .

[top]
Chapter X
Vanquish the Gravedigger

For this trophy, you will need to complete the four levels in Chapter Ten and defeat the chapter boss, the Gravedigger.

He's not very difficult, just defeat the coffin enemies at first, then when the gate opens run over to him to begin the battle. He'll summon a few more of these creatures throughout the fight, but no worries as there are no coffins for them to crawl into. Just dodge and evade his various attacks and then once you deplete his health, DO NOT R2 him... run over to the right and open the crematory door and then hit R2 on him,

Follow the button sequences and you'll knock him over in there. He'll have one last go at you and just hit Square in time and then climb out after the video. Chapter complete .

[top]
Chapter XI
Acquire the power of the third Dark Lord

For this trophy, you will need to complete the two levels in Chapter Eleven and then defeat the chapter boss, the Dracolich.

This battle is fairly simple and all you do is hop from bone to bone, and destroying the magic points same as the other titan bosses. You will need to look carefully, as it'll sometimes appear you're at a dead end, but there is a place you must drop to or grapple to the other side of him. It will take a little time, but just keep at it and pay attention when he shakes so you don't fall.

Take out all the points and then you'll be dropped back down and you'll have to grapple his face and quickly run deep in his mouth and hit the last point to stop him from shooting you out with his breath attack. After you destroy him, you'll have the final piece of the mask and be prepared to face your final and greatest foe.

[top]
Chapter XII
Defeat Satan and save the world

For this trophy, you will need to complete the final battle level which is the only level in Chapter Twelve and involves taking down Satan.

For this battle, use everything you learned from fighting Pan, trying to block and counter attack whenever possible and switching out your magic to the opposite of his own. Periodically he'll drop some orbs on the ground (red or blue). If you are using light magic, you will get pulled into a red circle, whilst if you are using shadow magic, you will get pulled into the light ones. If by any chance you get pulled into any of the migic circles, simply switch on the corredponding magic colour whilst restrained into the circle (ie. if you get pulled into a red circle whilst having light magic on, just press to change shadow magic. You will be freed from the circle and you will have a second to dodge/move away from Satan's attack).

After a while, he'll fall dazed and you must run over to him and hit R2. HOWEVER, he has rings of magic around him and they will knock you back if you aren't same magic type, kinda like the orb attack. The first time, he just has four rings surrounding him and you just switch magic as you walk into the next one. Near the end, he'll do this again, except the rings will move and encircle him so you'll have to pay close attention or get knocked back and risk him healing all the way.

After this, follow a short button sequence and enjoy the cut-scene.

Oh and after credits, stay tuned in .

Details: Complete all the trials for Chapter II

Complete every trial in Chapter II and you will obtain this trophy. Another time level trial, however, on the next titan and so use same strategy as for Chapter I, the Dark Crystal. If having trouble making time, just play level a few times to get used to how you need to move and just practice. THEN when you're ready, use the crystal and take him down. If you mess up, just quit and go to another level. Then retry it.

Trials - Chapter III
Complete all the trials for Chapter III

Complete every trial in Chapter III and you will obtain this trophy. Only two levels you'll have to complete trials on and they are both really easy so no worries here.

Just during the fight with the Dark Lord, BE SURE TO NOT EVER use your light magic. You'll have to be good at dodging and this should come with ease. Level before, just use your fairy special attack whenever you can and wait for enemies to become stunned, then finish em off. Simple.

Trials - Chapter XII
Complete all the trials for Chapter XII

Complete the one trial and level in Chapter XII and you will obtain this trophy. It's kinda rough though as you must NOT get hit a single time by the opposite magic type that Satan is.

Basically, just keep magic off and block/counter his attacks then switch it on, rip into him, then turn off. Easiest way I found to do this ... and no chances. IF you're really really REALLY good at evading, then keep it on and do that way. When the rings form around him, don't worry if you get hit, it won't count against you. Must be one of his attacks. However, I'm not sure if the reaper hits count or not, I never was hit by one with opposite magic on.

IF you get hit in second part of fight, just reload and you won't have to redo it all . Best of luck.
