This is a really interesting platformer. You play as a graffiti artist, platforming the walls of New York, that has the graffiti come to life! The enemy is also a graffiti artist that sprays monsters, that you must kill (or avoid); and you will use your graffiti to create platforms or other tricks (you will unlock tricks as you play). The coolest part is that the walls will rotate to your perspective (can be adjusted in many locations), and you need to platform from the proper perspective to progress in the level and/or collect a tag/power/etc.
If you like platformers, get this game!
Step 1: Complete the game
Play thru the game, focusing on completing the level. Don't worry so much about collecting items, however grab them if you can. Many items can't be collected on the first run, as it requires a power-up you will receive on another level. During this step, you will unlock Gone Sideway, It's kind of a..., Plinked Slip, Bombed & Bumped, and Freedom.
Step 2: Collectibles
You will now revisit each non-boss level you missed an item on. First collect all the powers/upgrades for Completionist. Then collect all the secret tags, to unlock Tag Collector.
Step 3: Clean Up
Now redo a level, meeting these specific requirements, if you haven't unlocked the trophy yet:
- Complete a level with 2 local players, I suggest the first boss, for Graffiti Partner.
- Complete a level without dying, I suggest the first level, for Unkillable.
- Complete a level without killing anyone, can be either Jamaica level, for Pacifist.
Complete the first mission
Story related. Simply complete the first level (Alleys 1) and this will unlock.
It's kind of a...
Defeat Big Deal
Story related. After completing the first four levels, you will encounter the first boss. Defeat the boss, and this trophy will unlock.
Story related. After completing another four levels, you will encounter this boss. Defeat the boss, and this trophy will unlock.
Bombed & Bumped
Defeat Bomber & Lump
Story related. After completing another two levels, you will encounter this boss. Defeat the boss, and this trophy will unlock.
Complete the game
Story related. After the Lump boss, you will have one more level (Times Square), followed by two boss fights. Defeat the final boss, and this trophy will unlock.
If you are having a very difficult time with these boss fights, you can always spend some time getting upgrades first. When you collect all the upgrades, you will have seven bars for both health and paint.
Unlock all the paint powers and upgrades
See Tag Collector for general information.
There is no proper list/videos for the powers/upgrades. I am not about to replay the entire game to make a list, but if you are reading this before you play, PLEASE make a list (written or video) and let me know; you will get credit for it of course.
The hardest one to locate is on Chinatown 2, and here is a tip from Ge0force: It is under a movable box near a thorn. There is also a one many people miss towards the beginning of South 2.
Collect all the Tags in the game
Each non-boss level has 5 Secret Tags and up to 3 Unlocks (Powers and Upgrades). You can see how many you collected for each on the level select map; just move over that level and wait a moment for the status window to show. While playing any level, you can also hit to see how many you have/need. You can quit after you get them, or restart the level freely, as it saves either way (despite the game stating all progress will be lost).
You can keep replaying each level till you collected all the booty. Some of these will not be possible to reach till you have a certain power, which may be on another level. It is strongly advised to collect all the upgrades first, then go for the secret tags. Many levels have a cloud-? Graffiti that triggers a clock and a bunch of score tags - collecting all these score tags before the clock timer ends will allow you to snatch a secret tag (if you haven't collected it yet). Once you collect a secret tag or power up, it will no longer appear on the level.
Each level also has hundreds of score tags, which you (thankfully) will NOT need for this trophy! Just collect the 55 secret tags (5 secret tags on each of the 11 non-boss levels), and this trophy will unlock.
Thanks to FrankNStein for these great videos:
Complete a level in co-op
You will need a second controller, as this game is offline only. I used a move motion controller, which worked fine. The move navigation controller will not work, as you need a button on the 2nd controller. Just hit on the second controller, complete the level (I did the first boss, without touching the second controller) and it will pop a moment later.
Complete a non-boss level without dying
I found the first stage (Alleys 1) to be easiest. If you die, just hit and restart the level. You can't click restart from checkpoint while going for this, as that will count as a death...
Complete level without killing anyone
This is a pain to do. I strongly suggest you do this after you have all the powers unlocked, or at least the Glide skill. Whenever you are falling in an area, glide down by holding , making sure you don't land on an enemies head.
If you kill anyone, just hit and restart the level. If the stage automatically kills anyone (such as the monster that falls on spikes in Alley 1), or requires you kill anyone to progress (such as in Alley 2), then you won't earn the trophy . I did this on the third stage (Jamaica 1).
I found Jamaica 2 is a much easier level for Pacifist. The only tricky section is the introduction of the laser lock-on guy. But you can jump over him if you time it right. And if you die at that part, the checkpoint is right there (dying doesn't affect the trophy).
Thanks to FrankNStein for all the solid videos!
