[top]Introduction

Mercury Hg, the next step in the evolution of the Mercury game series, presents addictive game play elements along with colorful and challenging settings. 60 new expertly crafted levels expand the ambiance and creativity that marked Mercury as an original title coming at a great price point to offer superb value.

Features include SIXAXIS™ tilt-control support, custom soundtrack support (make the levels pulse to your music!), and full-blown HD graphics for the first time in the Mercury series.

[top]Roadmap

Start off the game by completing the Tutorial Levels. If you play the tutorials using the Sixaxis motion sensor and listen to your own music you will get Musicium, Sixaxium and Revealium by the end of the tutorials.

Next, go to the first level (Hydrogen - [H]) in Discovery mode and focus on getting all 4 targets (Completion of the Level, Amount of Mercury Remaining, Time, and Bonuses Collected). After completing this level with 4 targets you will get Targetenium. Next, play against an online ghost replay on the Hydrogen level to get Spookium.

The next area you will want to focus on is Discovery Mode. Play through Discovery mode and try to get all 4 targets in each level. If you do not get it the first try you can retry as many times as you want to get the missing targets. By the time you are done playing all the levels in Discovery Mode and getting all of the targets you will have unlocked Bonusium, Bielementium . Trielementium, Quadelementium, Pentelementium, Unlockium, Discoverium. and Awesomium.

Next complete all of the bonus levels to unlock Bolevium. After that you need to complete all of the challenges to unlock Challengium. This is the hardest part of the game. The last level of a challenge is usually the hardest and it’s not very easy to practice levels in Challenge mode. My advice is to take your time and practice any levels you get stuck on in Discovery Mode until you are confident.

Good luck and enjoy the game!


[top]Trophies

[top]
Discoverium
Complete all the levels in Discovery Mode.

For this trophy you need to complete all of the 60 levels (Groups 1-5) in Discovery Mode. You don’t need to get all four targets in each level to get this trophy you just need to complete each level. In order to unlock all five groups you will need at least 100 atoms (the DLC levels do count toward this).

[top]
Challengium
Complete all of the Challenges.

This is the most difficult trophy in the game. There are 10 challenges and each challenge has 2-3 levels of difficulty that increase with each stage. Each challenge is a mixture of different levels. To get the trophy you need to beat each level by meeting the requirements of the challenge. When you get to the next level of difficulty the stage will remain the same, but the completion requirements will get harder.

This trophy requires a lot of patience and practice. Fortunately all of the levels in the challenges are levels from Discovery Mode. If you are having trouble getting through a challenge then go back to Discovery Mode and find the level(s) that you are stuck on. Practice until you feel confident then go back to the Challenges and try again.

Below are the Challenges with their completion requirements and video walkthroughs (courtesy of Kevinnummer1):

Bolevium
Complete all of the Bonus Levels.

The Bonus Levels are like the Discovery Mode levels, but instead of getting four targets you need to collect mercury until you are at 100% mercury. You need 100% mercury to complete each level. If you drop any it will be considered a fail and you will need to restart the level. Be patient with these levels and remember that there is no time limit so you can go slowly and take all the time you need to gather the mercury.

[top]
Targetenium
Complete all 4 targets in any Discovery Mode level.

You can get this trophy as early as the first level, Hydrogen - [H]. This is also the easiest level to get the trophy on. Every level has four targets that you need to complete.

The four targets for Hydrogen (H) are:

1. Completion of the Level
2. Amount of Mercury Remaining - 100%
3. Time - 30 seconds
4. Bonuses Collected - 3

If you don't get all of these targets on your first playthrough of the level, you can replay the level to get whichever target(s) you're missing and the trophy will still unlock.


[top]

Spookium
Download and play against an online ghost replay.

This is the only online trophy for this game and you will need to be connected to the PSN. In order to access the leaderboards you will need to first complete one level. Once you have completed a level go to the level menu and highlight the level you want to play. Press then press twice.

Once you have music on your PS3 and your game is loaded go to the Main Menu, then to Help & Options and select Music Player to choose what you music you want to play.
