Follow us on twitter for the latest news and giveaways.

Stage 1 – Complete the story


You will need to complete the game with one character. You can pick “BAM”, “BOM” and “BAU”.

Each character has its own benefits:
BAM: Yellow, Slow, can destroy stones in one hit (3 power, 1 speed)
BOM: Blue, very fast (1 power, 3 speed)
BAU: A bit of BAM & BOM (2 Power & 2 Speed)

It’s recommended to pick BAM for your full playthrough. While playing, keep an eye out for the following trophies:

– 10x Combo Master: Smash 10 gems in a row
– Bonus Master: Collect 10 bonuses in a single level
– Carrot King: Pickup 25 carrots from underneath breakable blocks
– Gold digger: Find the crown bonus
– Survivor: Don’t lose any lives for 3 levels
– That was quick: Clear a level in 20 seconds or less
– Inverse champion: Destroy 5 gems with inverted controls.

Stage 2 – Clean up


For the trophy “The same but different” you will need to complete the 3 starting area’s with each character, so:
With BAM, clear: Green Hill, Poseidonia & Egg Island
With BOM, Clear: Green Hill, Poseidonia & Egg Island
With BAU, Clear: Green Hill, Poseidonia & Egg Island

You will already have done so with BAM in stage 1.

 Inverse champion
Destroy 5 gems with inverted controls

To invert your controls, you will need to hit the button with the green arrow on it. These are spawned at random in levels. When controls are inverted, destroy 5 gems in total. You can do this over multiple levels.

(In my experience, more than 5 gems were needed before this trophy popped.)
