Introduction:

Welcome to the Journey Of The Broken Circle Trophy Guide!
A multi award winning wonderful indie game about falling in love, and falling out of love.
Platforming & storytelling go hand in hand in this sweet & enjoyable journey to find the missing piece that would be the perfect fit for the incomplete circle. It’s a tale of self discovery, portrayed in a fun, universal and relatable way. Light comedy is added into the dialogues with the various personalities we meet that could all be candidates to be that special one… But will you find everything you are looking for? What exactly are you looking for? What is perfection? Is the grass greener on the other side? Do any of us really know…

This game’s a real gem, fully deserving of the awards it has won, and I would highly recommend to any indie game lovers to make this game one of the next ones you play.

Roadmap:

Step 1: Complete the game. Grabbing any collectable mushrooms you see.
Enjoy the story, and just complete the 16 chapters of the game. As this is a platforming & narrative game you don’t need me to show you how to complete all chapters, just play it and enjoy yourself 🙂 just use the collectables guide below to easily grab all the mushrooms along your way!
There will be 38 collectable mushrooms to find. There will also be a few little miscellaneous trophies if you want to grab them now in one go then see the trophy guide below for more details.
Or you can just just grab them later via level select, nothing is missable.

You’ll be earning these trophies:
Gold FEEL THAT BEAT
Gold BECOME COMPLETE
Gold READY TO END IT ALL?

Step 2: Collectables & miscellaneous trophy clean-up.
*This may be an unnecessary step for some of you, if you grabbed everything in step 1.*
But If you have missed any of the collectables by the time you have completed the game, then from the title menu select ‘LEVEL SELECT’, here it will tell you how many you are missing and in what levels. So via level select now replay the levels you need to finish off any missing collectables.
Use the trophy guides below for more details and locations for any of the collectables or miscellaneous trophies that you might have missed.

During this step you’ll earn these trophies:
Gold FINDING YOUR OWN WAY
Gold THE TEMPTATION OF THE VOID
Gold GOING IN CIRCLES
Gold MUSHROOM HUNTER

Step 3: Complete the Good Trip bonus game.
When you have collected some mushrooms you can enter the ‘Good Trip’ bonus game via the level select screen. In this mode you will have to find all 15 stars to get the good trip trophy. Refer to the video guide below if you would like to see how to find them all.

During this step you’ll earn these trophies:
Gold GOING ON A GOOD TRIP
Gold REACH THE STARS

Step 4: Complete the Bad Trip bonus game.
When you have collected some mushrooms you can enter the ‘Bad Trip’ bonus game via the level select screen. In this mode you just have to climb to the top of the mountain to get the bad trip trophy. This is the only slightly tricky trophy, it may be a little frustrating and it has purposefully been made that way! But just stick at it and you’ll get there! 

During this step you’ll earn the final trophies:
Gold GOING ON A BAD TRIP
Gold REACH THE PEAK
40-platinum PLATINUM TROPHY

PLATINUM TROPHY
EARN ALL TROPHIES

Congratulations, your platinum journey is COMPLETE!

FINDING YOUR OWN WAY Gold
STRAYING OFF THE BEATEN PATH

A very easy miscellaneous trophy.

Chapter 1 – Alone.
At the very start of the game, go to the left which will be a dead end where this trophy will unlock.

THE TEMPTATION OF THE VOID Gold
YOU CHOSE TO JUMP INTO THE VOID

A very easy miscellaneous trophy.

Chapter 7 – A Dark Place.
When you reach the void, and the angst monster, dialogue on screen will try to provoke you to jump into the void…

…Do it! Jump into the void, which will give you this trophy.

It will bring you to a credits screen, but don’t worry you don’t lose any progress (you can’t anyway because there is level select) just replay the level and carry on.

GOING IN CIRCLES Gold
CHASED BY ANGST. ROUND AND ROUND YOU GO!

Easy miscellaneous trophy.

Chapter 7 – A Dark Place.
When you are being chased by the Angst monster, keep running to the left until you see a big platform/rock with a path under, that you can jump on and around. Do a few loops around this platform/rock so the angst monster is chasing you in circles around it and this trophy will unlock.

FEEL THAT BEAT Gold
BUT DON’T LOOSE YOUR HEAD IN THE CLOUDS

I’m pretty sure this is a story related trophy… For completing the chapter’s with your friend BALLOON. 
Particularly the section in Chapter 9 Cloud 9, Where you are flying through the sky and have to press the button to bounce through the clouds to the beat.

(If I have just accidentally naturally got this trophy every time, and it doesn’t unlock for you, then let me know!)

BECOME COMPLETE Gold
ONE JOURNEY IS AT ITS END

Story related trophy for progressing through the dialogue with the angst monster at the end of Chapter 16 Mudslide.

If you select wrong dialogue it will keep looping back to the previous question, or the monster will kill you and the dialogue section will restart.

To progress this dialogue section, select these correct responses:

“Back off!”
“Balloon still had things to figure out by itself!”
“I might just be an imperfect Circle, but I do feel I’ve come a long way”
