Welcome to the trophy guide for Cotton Reboot! 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 – Arranged Mode


First, go to options and change the settings to Easy and 9 lives, it will stop your score from being added to the scoreboards but won’t affect any trophies, and make earning the trophies easier.

Recommended – Read the in-game manual.

Play through the story once as Cotton, use this playthrough to get used to the game and it’s mechanics as you have unlimited continues. Reaching the end will unlock Silk and pop 2 trophies. Go to options and change the playable character to Silk. Play through the game again and reach the end for the Silk-related trophy.

Misc Trophies to earn during Arranged mode playthroughs:

-Don’t shoot a boss for a couple of minutes until stronger enemies will appear.
-Get the final blow on a boss by holding down X then releasing for the fairy to attack it for Tondeke trophy.
-Kill a boss with 6 x magics remaining in your inventory for Preservation of magic trophy.
-Collect 6 of the same magic for the Favourite Magic trophy, collecting 6 blue, and then continue collecting crystals to get the magic level up to 3. Holding X to use the magic powerup to kill a boss will earn you “the barrier” trophy and “be prepared” trophy for killing with magic. Don’t hold X when you see a bubble around your character, this will just fire the fairy out and not the magic. Wait for the bubble to disappear.
-Destroying a Black Crystal. Use Red magic at level 3, by collecting 6x red crystals and then leveling them up.

Jizo destruction trophy -Shoot a Jizo. These are found randomly among the levels, they are small faces that are looking directly at the screen and are made of stone, they have long dangling earrings and red lipstick on them. They have more health than most enemies but are still easy to kill. Many of them can be found in the Time attack mode also.

Complete the first 3 levels without dying for 3 trophies. Save your magic for the bosses. Charge up your jewel counter. Make sure to have easy selected in options.

Stage 2 – Time Attack and X68000 Modes


Select 2 min Time Attack from the Main Menu and sit back and relax with this easy game mode, due to having infinite continues. Once the 2mins is up you will earn the related trophy. There will be an option box pop up, select the 5 min Time Attack mode and play it to earn the 5 min trophy.
Now choose and play X68000 mode from the main menu, change the options to easy, and add lives. You will have unlimited continues so just play until the end for the trophy.

The legendary gluttonous wizard!
You have won all the trophies!

Clear the first 2 levels in Arranged mode without dying/being hit once. Make sure to have easy selected in the options menu. Save your magic for the bosses.

On the stats screen, after the boss, you will receive a no-miss bonus if successful.

Jewel counter MAX!
The jewel counter is set to MAX. (Arrange Mode, Time Attack Mode)

Easiest done in Time Attack mode. By shooting enemies and collecting crystals the Jewel counter will reach 100%, displayed in the bottom left of the HUD. Press triangle when it reaches 100% to upgrade it. Continue collecting and shooting to make it reach 100% again. Do this 5 times to reach Max level.

Tondeke!
Defeated the boss using a fairy. (Arrange Mode)

Once you run out of magic, or after you have used some magic and have a bubble around you for a few seconds, you can press and hold X, your fairy will fly around you, release X and it will attack an enemy. Get the final kill on a boss using this method for the trophy.


Barrier!
The boss was defeated by the barrier’s body.(Arrange Mode)

Collect 6 x blue magic crystals, then continue collecting crystals to get the magic level up to 3. Hold down X and your fairy will spin around you, after a few seconds release it for a more powerful attack, get the final kill on a boss using this method for the trophy. Earning this trophy could also earn you the Be Prepared trophy for killing a boss with magic. If you see a bubble around your character then don’t try again until the bubble has disappeared, as this will only fire out the fairy (Tondeke trophy) and not the magic. A good indication is a chime sound that can be heard once your magic is ready.

Barrier Attack.

Jizo destruction!?
I shot Jizo and defeated it. (Arrange Mode, Time Attack Mode)

These are found randomly among the levels, they are small faces that are looking directly at the screen and are made of stone, they have long dangling earrings and red lipstick on them. Sometimes they are carrying a crystal. They have more health than most enemies but are still easy to kill. They can be known to fly away after a while if you don’t kill them. Many can be found in the Time Attack mode also.
You can see some examples in this screenshot on the far right. One with its eyes open and at the bottom right 2 with their eyes closed.

Kill a Jizo head.

Be prepared!
Defeated the boss using magic. (Arrange Mode)

Collect crystals to collect magic, shooting them will alter the color and correspond to the magic type e.g. blue electric, red fire, etc. Press X to use the magic, getting the final blow on a boss with magic will pop this trophy. You can hold X for a couple of seconds to use a more powerful shot.


Preservation of magic
Cleared the stage leaving 6 magics. (Arrange Mode)

Reach a boss with 6 magic’s collected in your inventory. Kill a boss with normal bullets and not magic and you will get this trophy. The magic will carry over to the next level.


Special strong enemies appeared!?
Special strong enemies character has appeared. (Arrange Mode)

Once you reach a boss, don’t shoot it, and eventually, after a couple of minutes, some golden-winged bat-like enemies will appear, popping this trophy.

Stronger Enemies appear.

Favorite magic!
Collected 6 of the same magic. (Arrange Mode, Time Attack Mode)

Shoot the crystals to make them change color. The last color change is black. Collect 6 of the same color for this trophy, you could tie it in with other trophies e.g. blue needed for the barrier trophy or red to destroy a black crystal. Killing a boss with normal bullets and having 6 magics remaining is another trophy.
If you pick the wrong one up by mistake just use the magic to remove it from your inventory. The magic you have collected is displayed at the bottom right of the screen.


The longest 2 minutes in the world !!
I played 2 minutes of time attack.

Simply select Time Attack from the Main Menu and sit back and relax with this easy game mode, due to having infinite continues. Reach the end of the 2mins for the trophy to pop. Once the game is over there will be an options box pop up where you can now choose the 5 min Time Attack for another easy trophy. The 5 min Time Attack is a good mode to play for destroying the Black Crystal and reaching max with the Jewel Meter.


The longest 5 minutes in the world !!!
I played 5 minutes of time attack.

Either select this from the main menu, altering the time from 2 mins to 5 mins or play the 2min version first and then a pop-up options box will appear allowing you to choose the 5 min version. Simply reach the end of the 5 mins for the trophy, easily done due to unlimited continues. This game mode is good for destroying the Black Crystal and reaching max on the Jewel Meter.


Black crystal destruction
I shot a black crystal and destroyed it. (Arrange Mode, Time Attack Mode)

First collect 6 Red crystals, then continue collecting them to get the magic level up to level 3 on all 6 magics if possible. Shoot a medium or larger-sized crystal until it turns black, preferably one on the opposite side of the screen, release all the magic combined with your bullets constantly shooting at it, by the time it reaches you it should be destroyed. It will say lost! once it’s destroyed and pops this trophy.
Note – Doesn’t seem to work on the smallest-sized crystals.
Please see the video for guidance. Earned on Level 3.

Destroy a Black Crystal.
