Christmas Break Trophy Guide

Trophy Roadmap:

Estimated time to Platinum: 15-30 Mins.
Missable trophies: None.
Glitched trophies: None.
Difficulty related: None.
Playthrough: Minimum 3 Levels. 

Introduction:

Welcome to the Christmas Break Trophy Guide!
smobile are back with another festive installment of their “Brick Breaker” series.
Just like the others you are looking at a nice fun, easy platinum that will take you no time at all.

As with the Head to Head version of the Christmas Break saga, you are only required to beat 3 levels with 3 different characters for the platinum trophy, as long as you’re lucky enough with the RNG of the collectibles.

Roadmap:

Step 1: Play Levels Hana (2nd), Seina (5th), & Hitomi (7th)
Playing the 3 levels mentioned above (and beating them) will ensure you are able to obtain the 3 level specific trophies of Silver Moving items destroyed, Gold Stationary mini bosses defeated & Bronze Jingle bells destroyed. These trophies can be earned in other levels, however, playing these 3 first could result in them being the only levels you need to play for the platinum.

Other than that, all you will need to do is keep playing over and over and hope that the RNG of the collectibles are kind to you. Remember that after finishing a certain level you will need to return to the Menu in order to switch characters/levels.

Tips and Strategies:

As with the previous game, Christmas Break only requires you to collect power-ups, rather than multiple ones, or defeating a number of enemies a certain way.
It is highly likely that you will obtain the miscellaneous collectible trophies simply by collecting all the power-ups that drop.

Listed here for what each Power Up means.

Trophy Guide:

Christmas Break master
Collected all the trophies in the game.

Become a Christmas Break Master! Collected all the trophies in the game.

Level completed
Completed a level.

This will pop as soon as you finish your first level. It doesn’t matter how many lives etc. you finish with, as long as you have destroyed all the items.

Fast player
Completed a level quickly.

There is no actual timer within the game, so there is no real way of knowing exactly how much time needs to elapse for this trophy to pop.
I would suggest this will come naturally during a level whilst playing, as there are a number of levels that have many power ups.

Personally I achieved this in my first match Vs. Hana.

Slow player
Completed a level slowly.

There is no actual timer within the game, so there is no real way of knowing exactly how much time needs to elapse for this trophy to pop. 
You will simply need to ensure that you stay one step ahead of your opponent in order to win at the last minute if this trophy does not come naturally.

Personally I achieved this in my second match Vs. Seina.

Elf defeated
Defeated an Elf mini boss.

Unlike previous games you do not need to defeat this Mini Boss a specific way. All you need to do is defeat Elf the first time you see him by any means necessary.

Elf can appear numerous times per level, so you should have no problems here.

Santa defeated
Defeated a Santa mini boss.

Unlike previous games you do not need to defeat this Mini Boss a specific way. All you need to do is defeat Santa the first time you see him by any means necessary.

Santa can appear numerous times per level, so you should have no problems here.

Snowman defeated
Defeated a Snowman mini boss.

Unlike previous games you do not need to defeat this Mini Boss a specific way. All you need to do is defeat Snowman the first time you see him by any means necessary.

Snowman can appear numerous times per level, so you should have no problems here.

Turbo player
Hit ball 3 times in turbo paddle mode without losing life.

Hold  to make the paddle speed increase and try to bounce the ball 3 times without letting it past you. Very simple to do on the earlier levels.

Sticky player
Caught ball 3 times with sticky paddle without losing life.

The Sticky Paddle Power Up will let the balls stick to your paddle in order to better select a shot that will be at the angle of your choice. When you have the ball stuck you will need to press the  button to release the ball back into the play area. 

Simply catch the ball (or a combination of) 3 times and fire it back up without losing a life in between.

Personally I achieved this in my third match Vs. Hitomi.

Shielded player
Hit ball 3 times with shield (bottom wall) without losing life.

The Shield Power Up gives you a barrier at the bottom of the screen just in case you let the ball past.
For this trophy you are required to let the bouncing ball hit the barrier 3 times before it expires. When you get this Power Up simply let the ball past you and keep your paddle out of the way.

Personally I achieved this in my first match Vs. Hana.

Invincible player
Survived a mini boss attack through invincible paddle.

You will need to collect the “Invincible Paddle Power Up” and then let one of the Mini Bosses hit your paddle with the fire shot whilst your paddle is still Yellow for this one.

Personally I achieved this in my third match Vs. Hitomi.

Slow and steady
Destroyed 3 items with slow ball without losing life.

Sometimes a bit tricky as collecting the Slow Ball Power Up will put the speed down to 0.5. thus making it harder to get that ball bouncing up and down enough to destroy the cakes. Fortunately the Power Up items also count for this trophy and only require one hit to destroy.

Personally I achieved this in my third match Vs. Hitomi.

Laser collected
Collected a laser power up.

As soon as you collect the Laser Power Up you will have the ability to fire with the  button.
All you need to do for this trophy is collect one as it falls.

Wide paddle collected
Collected a wide paddle power up.

As soon as you collect the Wide Paddle Power Up your paddle will increase in size, thus making it easier to bounce the ball off of.
All you need to do for this trophy is collect one as it falls.

Fireball collected
Collected a fireball power up.

The Fire Ball Power Up will turn your ball to fire and destroy everything in its path.
All you need to do for this trophy is collect one as it falls.

3-ball collected
Collected a 3-ball power up.

The 3-Ball Power Up is quite a tricky one, as collecting it will give you three ball total to play with.
Luckily, all you need to do for this trophy is collect one as it falls.

Laser lord
Destroyed 5 items with laser without losing life.

As soon as you collect the Laser Power Up you will have the ability to fire with rapidly tapping the  button. Simply destroy 5 items whilst this is active.

Personally I achieved this in my first match Vs. Hana.

Fireball fury
Destroyed 5 items with fireball without losing life.

The Fire Ball Power Up will turn your ball to fire and destroy everything in its path. The first time you collect this you will most likely obtain this trophy, as long as you keep the ball alive.

This can be achieved in a high number of levels throughout the playthrough and will most probably come naturally. 

Personally I achieved this in my first match Vs. Hana.

Jingle bells destroyed
Destroyed 3 Jingle bells in a level.

The Jingle Bells can only be destroyed by an active Power-Up, as bouncing a normal ball off of them will not destroy them.

I encountered 4 Jingle Bells within the 7th level Vs. Hitomi and was able to destroy using the laser power-up. You can also destroy them using the fireball power-up, so if you miss out on them when either power-up is active simply restart the level and try again.

Combo power up collected
Collected a combo of 3 or more power ups.

For this you will need to destroy the power up items in quick succession and then collect the power ups that fall whilst others are still active.
Very easy when you obtain the Laser Power Up early in a level, as you can destroy the cakes that you want and collect lots of power ups.

Personally I achieved this in my first match Vs. Hana.

All power ups collected
Collected all powers ups and collectibles in level.

Easier in the beginning levels, as the opponents are easier to begin with. Try not to rush the level and concentrate on collecting all of them, including the ones that fall from the beaten Mini Bosses. 
You are allowed to lose a life between collecting these.

No power ups collected
Completed a level without collecting any power ups.

Easier in the beginning levels, as the opponents are easier to begin with. Try not to rush the level and concentrate on not collecting a single one of them, including the ones that fall from the beaten Mini Bosses. 

Mini boss attacks survived
Survived all mini boss attacks in a level.

You will need to make it through at least one level without letting the Mini Boss shoot your paddle with their fire shot.

Most levels feature Mini Bosses, so you would be earning these one naturally as you play through the minimum 3 levels required

Personally I achieved this in my

7 lives win
Completed a level with 7 lives remaining.

You start each level with 5 lives and you can gain lives by collecting the “Life Collectible” a couple of times within one level.
Lives are also awarded you every 10,000 points obtained.

Personally I achieved this in my first match Vs. Hana.

30K points scored
Scored 30000 points in a level.

This will come naturally as you play. Points are award for breaking cakes and completing the levels as quickly as possible, with more points awarded the quicker you combine and destroy thing whilst completing the level.
The quicker the ball is moving, the higher the multiplier is, so try to keep the ball moving as fast as possible.

High 5 player upscale-245262160018212
Destroyed items at 5x speed.

Getting your ball to 5x speed can be quite tricky. The aim here is to keep bouncing the ball off of the lower items to increase the speed it returns.
You can also increase the speed by bouncing it off the angle of the paddle.

Also, try to stay away from the power-up that slows your ball.

Immortal player upscale-245262160018212
Completed a level without losing life.

You need to complete a level without loosing a life. Simply put, do not let the ball go past you, or get hit by a Mini Boss’ Laser.
