Follow us on twitter for the latest news and giveaways.

Stage 1 – Find all Collectibles



Do Not progress to the next level until you have found all collectibles, as the game auto saves and there is no chapter select option. Otherwise you will have to start the entire game again.
Optional – Quit the game each time a new level starts and back up your save. E.g. You have all collectibles for Level 1. Level 2 starts, quit game and back up save. You miss a collectible in Level 2 but trigger Level 3. Quit and Reload save, starting Level 2 again.

Collectibles
Stars x 150 – Bright white stars scattered throughout the levels, collected by walking/jumping into them. Amount collected displayed in the bottom left of the screen.
Excavation Items x 16 – Items have a vertical spiral of glowing white light above them, and need to be dug up by pressing circle when you see the in game prompt.
Secret Items x 5 – Random items with no indicators, have to be dug up. 1 per level, levels 1-5.
Carvings x 2 – The name Joseph carved into a tree. (Levels 3 and 6).


Stage 2 – Bunnies


Start a new game and during the first level chase after 13 bunnies. You will know when you have ‘caught’ one as it will make a shrieking sound and pop the ‘Hare Today’ trophy. Catch a total of 13, found in 6 different areas for the ‘Easter Bunny’ trophy. See Video.
Optional – Head back to the start of the level for a nice Easter Egg. This is the reason to do it separate from the ‘collectible’ playthrough.

Trophies


 Completionist
Uncover all secrets and discover a priceless treasure

If you have followed the Roadmap/Video Guides, and discovered all the secrets, then this trophy will pop during Level 6, while running down the hill towards the water.


 Hummed of Mystery
Finish the game

This will pop during the credits at the end of Level 6.


 150 Stars
Collect all 150 stars

This will pop at the end of Level 5 if you follow the Roadmap/Video Guides. Collect the bright white stars in the Levels by walking/jumping into them.


 Hare Today
Catch your first bunny 

The bunnies can be found on Level 1. Chase and catch one for this trophy. You will know when you have ‘caught’ one as it will make a shrieking sound when the fox touches the bunny. Try to approach them when they are sitting still, as when they start to run they are difficult to catch. If they run away go back to where you found them and wait as they will return.

Make contact with the bunny to make it squeal.

 Easter Bunny
Reveal the king of the rabbits!

This trophy is obtained on Level 1. Start a new game and do this separately to your 100% playthrough, as once you have found all bunnies there is a chance to see a nice Easter Egg if you head back to the start. Doing so means you get sent back to the main menu and have to start over. Chase and catch 13 bunnies for this trophy. You will know when you have ‘caught’ one as it will make a shrieking sound when the fox touches the bunny. Try to approach them when they are sitting still, as when they start to run they are difficult to catch. If they run away go back to where you found them and wait as they will return. If you catch one and it doesn’t squeal then you have already got that one. This trophy will pop once you have found all 13 and a giant one will appear at the start of the Level.

Do the Easter Egg at the end!

Stand next to it to pop the trophy.

 The Way Forward
Activate all of the obsidian rocks and unlock the way

Found only in Level 3, the game teaches you about them. With enough stars collected, stand on the rock and press circle. (Seems a bit glitchy, could be that circle needs to be pressed when the light has reached the highest point). Activating all 3 will pop you this trophy and unlock the pathway in front of the 1st obsidian rock/Joseph carving, where the brambles were. See Video.

Stand on it and press circle.
