Welcome to MouseCraft! Thankfully, this game is crossbuy for Vita/PS3/PS4 so this guide will work for all 3 versions. MouseCraft is an interesting puzzle/strategy game that's very similar to Mario Vs Donkey Kong Mini-Land Mayhem or Lemmings. It's only 80 levels and a fairly quick 100%. Nothing in the game is missable and thankfully everything trophy related is actually tracked in the game. To check your trophy progress, go the Main Menu, select Rewards, then Trophies. I love it when games track stats like this!
Step 1: Complete The Game & Go For Perfect Scores – Simply play the game and complete all 80 levels. There's no real story, so you can just skip all cut scenes if you want. Personally I'd recommend going for the Golden Cogs (Perfect scores) on every level before you move to the next, in order to save time.
Step 2: Grind Additional Ratoid Kills – Ratoids are the only enemies in the game and you will likely not get all of the various Ratoid kills along the way to completing the game. Check each trophy description below for ideal spots to grind.
Step 3: Design A Level In The Level Editor – Just go to Level Editor at the Main Menu and follow the instructions for the trophy description. Very simple, takes 30 seconds to do.
Mice spend a total of 600 seconds underwater.
You will likely not get this if you are using videos to complete the levels. Water is introduced to the game after you complete Level 22. If you need to grind this later, Level 70 has a lot of water that your mice can travel through. This one is odd, as it doesn't count if you die on the level, you either have to complete it back out/restart before dying. On Level 70, just have all three of your mice travel through the water at the beginning and when they are on dry land, just press Start/Options and Restart.
I also found this on YouTube. Nice little trick to auto-run it on Level 23, just press Start/Options and Restart for the trophy to pop (confirmed by Roughdawg4). Credits to munchmagic08 on YouTube for the video:
Design one level in the Level Editor.
Very easy, takes 30 seconds to create. Go to Level Editor at the Main Menu, select Create New. Then just place down a line of wood squares (the 3rd item down on the left), set a wheel on the left and cheese on the right, then press Start/Options (which will save so you can play/test the level) and you should get the trophy. Here's a screenshot of the level I created for the trophy:
Exterminate 10 Ratoids by using Explosive Bricks.
You likely will not get this if you are using videos to complete the levels. Explosive Bricks are introduced to the game after you complete Level 33. If you need to grind this, Level 37 has a Ratoid that you can kill with an explosive brick right at the beginning of the level. Just blow up the explosive brick when it's over his head and press Start/Options, then Restart level. It saves your progress automatically.
Exterminate 10 Ratoids by leading them into Acid Obstacles.
You likely will not get this if you are using videos to complete the levels. Acid is introduced into the game after you complete Level 51. Level 52 has two Ratoids that you can kill right at the start by destroying a block they are walking across so they fall into the Acid. Press Start/Options right after they die and select Restart. It saves automatically.
Exterminate 10 Ratoids by smashing them with Tetromino Bricks.
You should get this naturally, just by playing the game. Ratoids are introduced to the game after completing Level 11. If you need to grind this, you can just play Level 12 and crush the three Ratoids right at the beginning of the level. Press Start/Options right after they die and select Restart. It saves automatically.
Destroy 100 Tetromino Bricks with Bombs.
Impossible to miss. You'll get this naturally just by playing, but I got it on Level 47. Depends on how many restarts you have.
Exterminate 10 Ratoids by using Electric Bricks.
You likely will not get this if you are using videos to complete the levels. Electric Bricks are introduced to the game after you complete Level 42. Level 51 has water and an electric brick that you can put into it. Just start the level, set the electric brick in the water, destroy the first brick and run the Ratoid into the electrical water. Rinse and repeat, it saves automatically. If you want another option, on Level 72 you can run the Ratoid straight into the electric brick at the beginning as well.
Collect all Anima Shards.
There are 202 Anima Shards in the game and all of them are included in the videos linked below. Since you have to get all of them anyway in order to get the Golden Cogs (Perfect scores on every level), I wouldn't even worry about this. If you happen to miss one, you'll know because on the overview of the levels you will still have a Silver or Bronze cog instead of Gold. See “Gold Digger Expert” for more info.
Exterminate 50 Ratoids.
Impossible to miss, as you have to kill quite a few Ratoids in the game and complete the other trophies associated with killing Ratoids. I got this around Level 50 in the game by just by playing normally.

This is basically just beating the game and having all three mice survive on each level, whilst collecting all of the Anima Shards on that given level. The game starts out easy, but gets very tricky by the end. Thankfully, 100%PS4 on YouTube has created walkthroughs for every level to get Perfect scores (aka Golden Cogs), linked here:
