trophy Play
Gold | Moderate

To get this Trophy, you have to ace (no lives lost) all story levels. That includes the challenge levels (except the ones where it is necessary to die to end the stage). This may sound tough, but if you've played levels over and over again to collect items, you should have the layout memorized naturally and can breeze right through. The story levels themselves are designed quite easy -- with the only exception of the "Bunker" stage being a challenge. It is recommended you save that one for last.

Here's a tip for not dying during boss fights: study their moves carefully; they'll always repeat their actions in a loop. Knowing this, they become very predictable, especially the final boss. Just stay calm and read their moves.
--------------------
trophy Create
Gold | Difficult

This is considered difficult because you've got to not only grab the attention of other gamers, but impress them with your level design. With lots of new levels popping up everywhere now, it might be hard to get recognized. Even then, a lot of people don't know how to "heart" authors (open up the "more by this author" tab, click their icon, then heart them) -- getting 30 can take awhile. Best thing to do is pick a familiar game the LBP crowd would be familiar with (like any PS exclusive title) and base a design around that. It'll grab attention, and if it's unique and interesting, people will definitely start digging it.
--------------------
trophy Share
Gold | Difficult

This is probably the most difficult to get in the sense that it is the most time-consuming. Despite the description where it says "play 150 community levels," it really means finish 150 unique community-created levels. No popping in and out -- you've got to finish them. Best advice for Trophy hunters, use the "search" tool to look for levels that are tagged "quick, short, fast, easy or musical." These are the easiest levels to complete. Track your progress by hitting the "recent" tab and count how many levels have sackboy heads on them (which symbolize level is cleared). Then make sure to tag at least 50 of those completed levels and heart 10 levels. There's no way to track tags in the game, but hearts can be monitored by checking out your "my levels" page 2.
--------------------
trophy Just Beginning
Silver | Easy to Moderate

Like the description says, complete all the main path story levels. There are usually only three in each world. The final world has four. All the levels are very easy, but watch out for "Bunker." Take your time with this one.

Sometimes it's easier to finish a level playing solo because you don't need to worry about going off screen and dying, or online lag (if online).
--------------------
trophy 20X Multiplier!
Silver | Easy

Get a 20x multiplier score by making your own level and place a huge amount of score bubbles near the beginning. Then, test out the level in play mode and grab all the bubbles. If you don't have enough for 20x multiplier, then go back into edit mode and add in some more.
--------------------
trophy Hi Score
Silver | Easy

To get a combined score of one million is very easy. If you did the 20x multiplier, then you should know what the trick is here. Just add more bubbles until you can reach a 100x multiplier and finish the level. You should have a massive score. If you don't get the trophy, just play the level again and again until you do. Remember it's cumulative score; not all in one level.
--------------------
trophy Booty Master
Silver | Difficult

This is only difficult because it is necessary to access the x2, x3, and x4 player areas. This means you'll need to rely on other people to help you out -- not just your own skill. Unless you have three friends with time on their hands and a controller each, this can be very tough to get with online friends.

Online multiplayer has no formal lobby, which makes it difficult for people with similar interests to band up together (finding them and keeping them around is tough). A good work around is to post a request to join up together on an outside internet forum. Eventually, you'll find all the items as the solo ones are very easy to spot. You can track your progress by checking the last details page of a level.
--------------------
trophy Dr Frankenstein
Silver | Easy

You first need to take the tutorial for creating creatures in edit mode. Simply finish all previous tutorials by hitting "the next tutorial" button in the pop-it. Once you get to that one, finish the tutorial and exit back to your level. Now just create a creature with everything you just learned.
--------------------
trophy Crowd Pleaser
Silver | Easy

Make sure you have a catchy name. Get your friends and online friends to play it. If you follow our advice for the "Create" gold Trophy, then you'll have this one by the end of the day.
--------------------
trophy Feel the love
Silver | Moderate

To get 10 people to heart your level, you're really going to have to make a good one. The majority of people will be there to just play and not bother with hearting, tagging or whatever. You need to impress the people with good design and a familiar approach (again, follow our advice for "Create" gold Trophy. This one could take awhile as there are so many levels out there now. You need to stand out of the crowd with something special, good luck.
--------------------
trophy Celebrity
Silver | Difficult

This can be tough as most people don't know how to heart players. You need to open their level page, hit "more by this author," hit their player card, and then heart them. Again, who would go out of their way just to do this? People who are impressed with your level. Again, can't stress this enough: you need to make a fairly unique, not necessarily original, and fun level. There's no work around. Good luck.
--------------------
trophy The Gardens
Bronze | Easy

Like its description, just finish all levels (including challenge levels) in "The Gardens" world and you're set. There are three major path stories, three challenge levels and the intro level to complete. To open up challenge levels, you need to find keys found in the main story levels.
--------------------
trophy The Savannah
Bronze | Easy

Like its description, just finish all levels (including challenge levels) in "The Savannah" world and you're set. There are three major path stories and five challenge levels to complete.
--------------------
trophy The Wedding
Bronze | Easy

Like its description, just finish all levels (including challenge levels) in "The Wedding" world and you're set. There are three major path stories and three challenge levels to complete.
--------------------
trophy The Canyons
Bronze | Easy

Like its description, just finish all levels (including challenge levels) in "The Canyons" world and you're set. There are three major path stories and six challenge levels to complete.
--------------------
trophy The Metropolis
Bronze | Easy

Like its description, just finish all levels (including challenge levels) in "The Metropolis" world and you're set. There are three major path stories and three challenge levels to complete.
--------------------
trophy The Islands
Bronze | Easy

Like its description, just finish all levels (including challenge levels) in "The Islands" world and you're set. There are three major path stories and three challenge levels to complete.
--------------------
trophy The Temples
Bronze | Easy

Like its description, just finish all levels (including challenge levels) in "The Temples" world and you're set. There are three major path stories and three challenge levels to complete.
--------------------
trophy Expert Creator
Bronze | Easy

Just finish all tutorials in the edit mode. There's a button at the top of the pop-it which will bring you to the next tutorial. If that icon disappears and you didn't get the Trophy, be sure to check your tools bag and highlight anything with an avocado colored symbol next to it. You'll want to hit the square button to open up the "more info" tab and then open up the tutorial manually.
--------------------
trophy Artist
Bronze | Easy

You'll get this as soon as you use a sticker. You don't need to be told how to do this one!
--------------------
trophy Homemaker
Bronze | Easy

You just need to use 10 stickers in your pod. Any 10 will do and they can even be the same ones. Have fun!
--------------------
trophy Fashion Sense
Bronze | Easy

After having finished a few levels, check to see if you have any new head, body and material items. Switch into new items for all three areas and you'll get the Trophy.
--------------------
trophy Trendsetter
Bronze | Easy

Easy if you've got another controller. Just fire up your other controller and let the new Sackperson load up. Once it's there, place a sticker on him or her. Done. If you don't have a second controller, then play online. The easiest time to place a sticker on another Sackperson is when they're waiting around in the pod.
--------------------
trophy Forager
Bronze | Easy

There's no real way of gauging the percentage of the items you've already acquired, so just keep collecting items as you go. 25 percent will come extremely easy.
--------------------
trophy Sticky Fingers
Bronze | Easy

Again, there's no real way of gauging the percentage of the items you've already acquired, so just keep collecting items as you go. 50 percent will come pretty easily without much effort.
--------------------
trophy Treasure Hunter
Bronze | Easy

Again, there's no real way of gauging the percentage of the items you've already acquired, so just keep collecting items as you go. 75 percent will come with some effort to collect as much as you can. So if you see a prize bubble, make sure to grab it. If it's too high, use movable objects to give you a boost. Also, make sure to check behind other objects.
--------------------
trophy 2X Multiplier!
Bronze | Easy

You'll get this almost instantaneously in the first level. If not, it's really not difficult to get in latter stages.
--------------------
trophy 8X Multiplier!
Bronze | Easy

Most online community levels give insane amounts of score bubbles, which makes getting this easy. If you don't have online, then you could always follow our 20x strategy. Also, the only way to get it in the purest way is go to "The Meerkat Kingdom" stage in the Savannah. There's a section there with a lot of score bubbles. If you time your jumps and landings right, you'll get 8x multiplier there.
--------------------
trophy Cranium Collector
Bronze | Easy

Killing 100 creatures across all levels is easier than it sounds. Don't bother worrying about this or counting. Just play the levels naturally, and you'll eventually get this.
--------------------
trophy Secret Stickerist
Bronze | Easy

This was a bit tricky. You'll need to complete the first level and then replay it. Near the beginning there will be some sticker switches. Just activate them with the right stickers and you're done.
--------------------
trophy Incredible Speed!
Bronze | Easy

You can't achieve this in the regular story mode. You need to create a level with a vehicle that has rocket boost maxed out. Then take it for a spin. There are also community levels which will help you get this (cheating!).
--------------------
trophy Incredible Height!
Bronze | Easy

You can't achieve this in the regular story mode. You need to create a level with a vehicle that has rocket boost maxed out. Make sure it's pointed vertically and then take it for a spin.
--------------------
trophy Sackbird
Bronze | Easy

You can't achieve this in the regular story mode. You need to create a springboard with a piston. Tweak the piston to a maximum length of 40.0, a minimum length of 1.0 and strength at 10.0. Time should be at 0.1s and pause should be at 4.0s (so you can get on). Feel free to mess around with the settings, though this will guarantee four seconds in the air going up and four second going down. Just right for the Trophy.
--------------------
trophy Friendly
Bronze | Easy

Just finish a level with another player. It's self explanatory, really! If you want a short cut, play First Steps, and once near the end at the last respawn point turn on your second controller. Then control both Sackboys to the goal. Done.
--------------------
trophy Party Person
Bronze | Easy

Luckily you know enough people on your friends list who can game at the same time. If you don't, then best give a shout out on an internet forum and make some friends! Remember, this is online play on any level.
--------------------
trophy Socialite
Bronze | Moderate

Finding three strangers is tough. If that wasn't tough enough, then keeping them around is even harder as they can come and go as they please. Like we said earlier, there is no formal lobby so getting connected to a stranger's game is really somewhat of a dice roll. If you're lucky you'll pop into a group of three just about to finish the level -- there, all done! However, that's rare.

Best thing to do is make a request on an internet forum, add everyone (so you can easily invite and join their game) and get the Party Person Trophy. Then, delete them from your friends list and finish another level. You'll have the Socialite Trophy.
--------------------
trophy Top of the class
Bronze | Easy

Winning a 4-player game is easy. You need to collect as much score points as possible. Try not to die, and at the same time try slapping other players into death zones so they lose points. It's best to choose a difficult level that you're very good at.
--------------------
trophy Traveller
Bronze | Easy

Just finish any community level. You can do that, right?
--------------------
trophy FIRST!
Bronze | Easy

Keep a keen eye out for new community levels with less than 10 people having played it. You can check how many people have played the level by the number situated next to the Sackperson symbol in the upper right-hand corner. An alternative is to publish your own locked level, which makes it impossible for others to play. Play it, finish it, and you get the Trophy.
--------------------
trophy Opinionated
Bronze | Easy

After finishing a community level, just choose the number of stars you want to give it, and then leave a tag. Done.
--------------------
trophy Neighbourhood Watch
Bronze | Easy

You need to heart five community levels. To do this, simply finish the level and then choose the "add to hearted" option. Do this five times and you're done.
--------------------
trophy Networking
Bronze | Easy

You need to heart three authors of community levels. To do this, simply finish the level and then choose the "find more by this author" option and then click on their profile tab. Then you need to choose the heart option. Do this three times and you're done.
--------------------
trophy Talkative
Bronze | Easy

Extremely easy. All you have to do is open up a community levels menu and scroll over to the comments section. Type up a message and add it.
--------------------
trophy Creator
Bronze | Easy

Just open up the tools editor and choose a level with a template. Then simply add a few small items and keep eye on the thermostat that it's above 30%. Save. Done.
--------------------
trophy Team Creator
Bronze | Easy

If you have a second controller, just turn it on while in the tools editor. Save the level that you're making. Done.
--------------------
trophy Publisher
Bronze | Easy

Once finished creating a level, go back to the "my moon" page. Click on your level and tap right. You'll see a big "Publish" sign. Hit that and your level will be in the "cool levels" for everyone to play. You'll also get the Trophy.
--------------------
trophy Look what I made!
Bronze | Easy

Once published, you just need to wait awhile or invite people to play your level. It won't take long for five people to play your level.
