Welcome to the trophy guide for Solo: Islands of the Heart. This can also be considered a walkthrough and may be used for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Steam. Achievements for Steam and Xbox are in almost all cases the same as the PlayStation 4 Trophies. A roadmap is provided in the stages below.

Follow us on twitter for the latest news and giveaways.


Stage 1 – Play through the entire game.



All trophies can be earned in one playthrough and by completing a “Continue Game”, as you will be at the point near the choice for the second ending. Focus on interacting with all the animals by feeding them what they require, completing the photograph requests, interacting with the ghost partners, and making it to the end of the game. Choose either to sit on the bench next to your partner ending or to sail off by yourself ending. After the credits finish, at the main menu continue your game, you’ll be back at the end area of the game where you will choose the other ending to the game. Take note to read through all the trophy descriptions because you could potentially miss up to 15 trophies in a single playthrough of the game.

(Note:
1. Puchuchu cannot climb up, they can move horizontally and downward (as long as it is not too big of a drop to go down). Puchuchu are bumble bee animals.
2. The colors of the landscapes may differ from the pictures shown below depending on how you answer the questions from the totems. This will affect these colors.

 Tireless seeking.
Interact with all the ghost partners.

There are ghost partners throughout the game. Interact with as many of them you can throughout the game and you will earn this trophy during the third archipelago area. There are ghost partners that are on benches, on swings, near a bell, sitting on ledges, laying on the ground, near trees, etc. See the pictures below for some examples.


 Making new friends.
Feed all the animals in the game.

There are 16 animals that you need to feed in the game.

(Note: The bumble bee animal eats bananas, the blue teddy bear animal eats apples, and the pink elephant eats cheese.)

When you see any of these 3 animal types, search for their food within the surrounding area. Bananas can be on a tree or the ground; apples can be on trees or on the ground; and the cheese is near a box of other cheese wedges.

There are 5 animals to feed in the first archipelago, 4 in the second, and 7 in the third. All of the animals are very easy to locate and you will see them clearly as you progress through the linear stages of each archipelago. You do not need to feed any of the Pachuchu that you reunite together. If you do miss an animal(s) in your first playthrough, then you can play a new playthrough and only feed the one(s) you missed.


 A heart full of music.
Gather all the music.

There are five sheets of music to collect throughout the game. Simply go up to the tent and interact with it to collect the music sheet. (Note: Some tents have letters instead of music sheets. Refer to the table and pictures below to see where the five music sheets are located.)

Set up the blocks as shown in the picture below and then use the parachute to float over to this island. When on the island, interact with the bell. It will ring, summoning 3 small fish to come to the surface of the water for a few seconds behind you. Take out your camera and take a photo of any of them. Return to the sapling and interact with it to give it the photograph.

Arrange the blocks as shown in the pictures below.

 Helping out.
Photograph a red seagull for the sapling and give it to him.

There are 2 red seagulls that could be photographed in the beginning part of the game. You only have to photograph one of them (and you can check in your inventory the photographs that you have taken to make sure you did actually take a photograph of one.) The first is sitting on your house at the beginning of the game, and the second is at the second small lighthouse, each separately shown in the pictures below. As you progress through this area, you will go to the top of a taller area where a totem is located. The sapling quest giver is beside this totem. Interact with it and you will automatically give it the requested photograph of a red seagull.


 Could we wait a bit longer?
Lay on the beach.

 Gotcha!
Pet a hiding mole.

There are multiple chances to pet a mole that will pop their head out of the ground throughout the game. However, it is recommended to get this trophy earlier on, as the moles will sometimes move faster away from you, preventing you from petting them as you progress further through the game.

Pet a mole.
