Stage 1 – Obtain Upgrades


-Choose Casual – A Chill Experience when creating a save file.
-It is recommended to use Circle and Triangle for the Jump and Attack buttons instead of X and Square, as there is less of a chance of pressing the touchpad which resets the level.
-Ignore the fact that there is a level select and play through each level in turn to obtain the abilities, upgrades and extra lives needed for Level 7.
-Compete Level 4 within 4 minutes to earn Sling Star ability at the start of every level.

Optional – Replay all 6 Levels and complete them under 2 minutes to earn the upgrades.
Replay Level 1 for the Lightspeed Gears – When you have all abilities collecting another gear will freeze the timer, as well as giving you hyper speed, making it easier to complete the other levels within 2 minutes.
It is highly recommended to at least replay Level 4 for the Spread Sling Star and Level 5 for the Glider Bombs. Especially Level 4 as the game would be challenging to complete without Spread Sling Stars and are required for boss fights.

Stage 2 – Level 7


Level 7 – Now you have all the upgrades required, play through the shorter iterations of levels 1 – 6 to reach the end boss, mainly gliding your way across the top of the screen, dropping bombs, to skip most of the sections with ease. Try to keep your health full ready for the boss by collecting the shield batteries/health pickups along the way. Once you reach the boss use the Spread Sling Stars to destroy the Power Skulls that surround him. Gliding from platform to platform dropping Glider Bombs also helps but note that jumping up and off the top of the screen too much can cause a rare glitch, that affects the camera and stops the screen scrolling. Continue hitting him like before until his health is almost depleted to trigger a cutscene. Then, during the second boss, jump left to the platforms while also pressing attack to destroy any rocks in your path in order to reach the portal.

Stage IV
Finish stage 4.

Boss fight – Apart from Stage 7 this is probably the hardest boss, one of the frogs is vulnerable to your attacks so aim for the other. Best advice is to stay in the middle centre of the screen and attack when the enemies jump near you by crouching and attacking. The trophy will pop when you kill the boss. Collect the Power Skull to end the level.

Ability Items

Stage VII
Finish stage 7.

It is recommended to only attempt this level once you have at least the Spread Sling Stars upgrade from completing Level 4 under 2 minutes and the Glider Bombs from completing Level 5 under 2 minutes. Once you have all the upgrades required, play through the shorter iterations of levels 1 – 6 to reach the end boss, mainly gliding your way across the top of the screen, dropping bombs, to skip most of the sections with ease. Try to keep your health full ready for the boss by collecting the shield batteries/health pickups along the way. Once you reach the boss use the Spread Sling Stars to destroy the Power Skulls that surround him. Gliding from platform to platform dropping Glider Bombs also helps but note that jumping up and off the top of the screen too much can cause a rare glitch, that affects the camera and stops the screen scrolling. Continue hitting him like before until his health is almost depleted to trigger a cutscene. Then, during the second boss, jump left to the platforms while also pressing attack to destroy any rocks in your path in order to reach the portal.
Here is a video playthrough of the level. The trophy will pop during the cutscene after entering the portal.
