[top]Introduction


Master Reboot is a puzzle/horror/adventure/sci-fi mash-up from Wales Interactive, in which you go through various memories and face scary AI girls and atmospheric landscapes through some rather odd and otherworldly yet recognizable landscapes. The game is short and features relatively creative trophies to get. The games got mediocre to good reviews, receiving a Metacritic score of 62 out of 100.


[top]Tips & Strategies


There really isn't a lot to this game. Most it is just about a bit of exploration and some awkward platforming sections. The hardest levels are the park, the fairground, and the circus, since they require some exploration. Here is a brief description of them.

The park:
Fairly straightforward you need to gain some glowing triangles to fill up a circle (trivial pursuit style). Some of them requires meticulously searching of the outside of the fence area, between the trees. Some of them requires you to interact with the playground activities.

The fairground:
This is the hardest level to figure out. Take a coin from the fountain at the beginning area, then insert it in the robotic fortune teller, next to the ferris wheel. You now have a gun. You can use this gun to shoot at the two galleries. You also need to climb the the two slides (they are in opposite corner of the fairground), and shoot a big target from there. You also need to make a visit to the bumper cars, and push them into the right areas, depending on their colors. After that has been done, you can complete the level.

The circus:
Not a lot to describe here. You need to find three glowing balls. Since the area is mostly filled with just trees, it's hard to point out where exactly to look, but the area isn't that big, so it shouldn't take too long.


[top]Roadmap

Step 1: Welsh-through
This is the main playthrough. Pick Welsh as the language to get that trophy when you finish the game. Go for the normal end, so just play through the game, getting all of the misc. trophies and all of the collectables on the way, until you've collected all trophies but: "Master Reboot ". It is important to notice that you can replay every single level of the game, as long as you don't start the final level, with the exception of the intro stage.

Step 2: Alternative end
If you haven't started a new game you can pick "continue" from the main menu, and it will leave you back at the final level (if you don't like the Welsh language you can turn it back to English now). From here do as described under: "Master Reboot ", and you will get that trophy and this platinum trophy (woo, go you!)


[top]Trophies

[top]
Platinum Trophy
Platinum Trophy

Once you've hacked your way into the other trophies this should unlock.

[top]
Ducktective Inspector
Find all of the blue ducks.

Missable!
Throughout the game you will find 57 blue ducks hidden across the levels. You need to locate them and examine them by pressing the button. They are relatively easy to find, and the game is kind enough to auto-save every time you find one. For a list of all of their locations look in the "collectables" section of the guide.

[top]
Ducktective
Find half of the blue ducks.

Missable!
See: "Ducktective Inspector "

[top]
Welcome To The Soul Cloud
Complete the full game.

This is for getting the normal ending of the game. The game is very short, with only a few tricky parts. It's not even that hard puzzle-wise, and it can be beat in about 2-3 hours if you know what you're doing. Dying has little to no consequences, the levels are short and small, and the only two levels that can stump you are the park level and the fairground level, which takes a bit of searching.

[top]
Master Reboot
Find the alternative ending.

To get this ending you must initiate the last level of the game. You will come to a part with a virus sitting in a middle of a room and you will have to solve some annoying bell sound puzzles, where you have to shoot the bells in the right sequence to replicate a melody. Once that is done, you will end under the platform that the virus is sitting on. Here you will need to acquire an axe and destroy some black machine things. Once that is done everything will mess up, and at this moment pause the game, and then pick the "Quit the Soul Cloud" option and you will get this alternative ending.

[top]
Going Viral
Find all the virus symbols.

Missable!
There are a total of 15 virus symbols in the game. They are a purple/red mark that can be found on some surfaces. These are more tricky to find at times though it helps that they glow. The game auto-saves every time you find one.

[top]
Welsh Wizard
Complete the full game in Welsh.

Missable!
First time you boot up the game, the game will ask you if you want to experience the story in English or Welsh. Pick Welsh and get to the end of the game without changing it. If you already have booted up the game once, you will find this in the options menu, but you will have to start a new game. There are no points in the game that requires knowledge about the language to proceed. The only thing you will miss is the story.

[top]
The Virus, The Glitch & The Wardrobe
Attacked by the virus in the closet.

Technically missable, but hard to miss!
This is in the the children's room/childhood level (one of the first levels). To get a key in this level, you need to explore the dollhouse for coloured cubes. On the right part of the house, on the third floor (you need to sprint from the left part of the house and jump to the right part of the house to get there), there is a closet, get close to it, and an AI will jump out. Mash the shown button prompt to deal with the virus, and you will et this trophy.

[top]
First Class Ticket
Get the monorail to the Mainframe.

Story-related and can't be missed!
After completing the 11 levels in the soul village you will begin the last mission. Continue at you will get to a train station. Here you will need to take the nearby tubes and solve some memory pattern puzzles. Once all of them are solved a train will ride. Get on the train (don't forget to examine the virus symbol on the train), and it will drive with you and you will get this trophy.

[top]
Further Down The Rabbit Hole
Make the right choice in the Library.

Missable!
If you know anything about the Matrix, from the title of the trophy, this should be obvious. In the library level (the library is in the third set of levels, and is unlocked towards the end of the game), after navigating through the maze, you will enter an office looking room and the AI will give you a choice between a blue box and red box to examine. Pick the red box (remember to get the virus symbol and the rubber duck before choosing).

[top]
Heavy Reading
Get crushed by a bookcase in the Library.

Technically missable, but hard to miss!
In the library level you will need to navigate a maze. If you take a wrong turn somewhere you will be crushed by a bookcase, and respawn outside of the maze again. This will more than likely happen to you, since it's hard to avoid.

[top]
Scared Of The Dark
Complete the Hospital Level without a torch.

Missable!
This can be a bit tough. For this you need to find 4 screens that shows pulse, without picking up the flashlight at the starting area of this level. Three out of four of them are relatively easy since they are in relatively well lit rooms (one is in the big room with the chairs and table, one is in the big room with all of the beds, and one is in a corridor with lockers, where you will be attacked by an AI). The last one is tricky. It's at the back of the hospital and the corridors here are completely dark. There is a blue rubber duckie nearby under a chair that you can use as a marker since it glows. Once all four screens have been found and examined, the door will open. Go through the door and you will get this trophy. I do not reccomend going for the rubber ducks and virus symbols in this run of the level.

[top]
Designated Driver
Complete the Street Level without taking a hit.

Missable!
This is one of the trickier ones. The street level lets you control a car. You drive forward automatically and you can then swerve left or right to avoid oncoming traffic (which are for some reason coming from both lanes (traffic is crazy, man)). The level takes around 45 to 60 seconds, and sometimes you get unlucky and it is hard to dodge a car, but then you can just try the level again. You know that you've taken damage if you hear a loud thud sound and some code can be seen on the screen. If this happens you have already failed.

[top]
Astronomical
Complete the planet puzzle in the School Level without checking the answer.

Missable!
This is in the school level, which is at the beginning of the game, you are required to solve three puzzles to complete the level. One of these is an astronomy puzzle where you have to sort the 8 planets (and pluto) of the solar system in order. Once you interact with the solar system model in the classroom you will be transported to a big room, and here you will press some buttons to toggle the different planets.

The order goes (from closest to the sun to the farthest from the sun):
1. Mercury - Small gray planet.
2. Venus - Small orange planet.
3. Earth - This one is fairly obvious.
4. Mars - The small red planet.
5. Jupiter - The big orange and red striped planet.
6. Saturn - The planet with the rings
7. Uranus - The big green planet.
8. Neptune - The big blue planet.
9. Pluto - the small orange/green planet.

If done correctly the planets will fly up above you and you will be transported back to the classroom.

[top]
Unlucky Duckling
Go down the wrong path in the Fairground Zero Level.

Missable!
In the second part of the Fairground level (after activating the ferris wheel), you will follow a dotted path in an otherwise completely dark room. At some point the path is going to split into two. Take the right path and follow it to the end and a rubber duck will pop up, and you will get this trophy.

[top]
I Don't Like Aeroplane Food
Complete the Aeroplane Level without dying.

Missable!
In this level there are two places where you can die. The first one is at the very beginning. Here a spooky AI stewardess will walk back and forth the airplane. Your objective is to get three orange... things, while not getting spotted. When the stewardess turns around you can move, but to have her go by you and not notice you will need to hide at a seat where the overhead light is off, so you need to look out for that. The three orange things can be found at the front of the plane, around the middle of the plane, and at the back of the plane. Once you have all of the pieces, sneak past the stewardess and through the open door.
The second place you can die is when you're crawling in the vents, suddenly a cutscene of the little AI girl and tense music starts to play. Just hurry through vents as you can, before she catches up. Once you've gone through those two parts this trophy is as good as yours.
You do not have to complete the Aeroplane Zero level, which is good, since that part is really frustrating.

[top]
Smack My Glitch Up
Hit all the viruses in the Graveyard Level.

Missable!
This is as said in the Graveyard level, which gets unlocked towards the end of the game. You first need to acquire the hammer in this level. After doing so, you will need to find 5 viruses that are stuck in stone coffins. They can take an infinite amount of hits, but you just need to hit them once. The first two is in the big area at the beginning. They are both in tombs that you need to access by destroying the wooden planks in front of them. The next two is in the big crypt, where you will be chased by viruses. You won't be able to get both of them and get out in time, but it doesn't matter if you die; they still count. The last one will be found not far after, and once you whack her, you get this trophy.

[top]
The Final Countdown
Complete the Final Level in record time.

Missable! Be extra careful about this one! Also spoilers!
In the very last part of the game, you will be set on a timer (180 seconds (3 minutes)), where you need to use the axe to smash 5 cubes. This part is actually kind of tricky. You will see two passageways if you look around the area, and three jumppads on the ground.
One of the passageways will lead to a puzzle where platforms will appear under you and disappear in a long corridor. This one can be tricky, if you don't realize that you just have to walk forward in normal pace. Don't run, don't jump. As soon as you see the first white platform just begin to walk normally and you will get to the first cube.
The second passageway leads to a hall with big cubes that can push you off the walkway. This one is really easy and I have never failed this one.
One of the jumppads will lead to a room with a long corridor where red glitch.... things.... fall from the ceiling. Just run through the corridor for this one.
Another of the jumppads will lead to a room where two lines of the red glitch things go back and forth. One of them you have to jump over and the other you need to duck under. Timing-wise I found it easiest to jump over first and then duck.
The last jumppad leads to a simple jumping course. This one is easy, but it's the one that takes the longest amount of time to beat. Don't get cocky or overly brave. You will just fail and have to do it again.
When you get acquainted with the courses, you now have to do it in a nice time. The exact time required is unknown, but I would say that you should at least try to beat it with 45 seconds left on the clock. If you're unsure if you're going to make it, just the let time run out and try again. This is not as hard as it first appears to be, because I was able to do it with 70 seconds left on the timer.

Whales Interactive
Touch the whale on the Beach Zero Level.

Missable!
In the beach level, after summoning the boat and ride on it, you will begin to dive underwater. Look up, and you will see the whale (it kind of looks like the underside of a boat, but don't get fooled. Swim to it quickly and bump in to it for this trophy. It won't be there forever, so you will need to be quick. If you look below you will see another creature, but this one looks more like a shark, and I'm not sure if it counts.

[top]
AM/FM
Listen to the radio show in your Soul Village.

Missable!
Note: If you live in the EU region, you NEED to download the patch for this game or else this trophy will be glitched and will not unlock.

After completing the streets level, you will then find a radio next to the door to the streets level in the Soul Village (the level select room). Reach this radio and examine it to get this trophy.

[top]
Inducktion
Read the employee handbook.

Story-related and can't be missed!
After the intro with the axe, and the forest, and the duck shrine, you will get to a bridge. Cross it, watch the film and then enter the door that opens. Enter the next building and on the desk there is a blue rubber duckie. Examine it to get this trophy, and to progress.
