Introduction:

Welcome to the Ladders by POWGI Trophy Guide!
Lightwood Games are back and they bring with them their POWGI series to the PS5. This time there are 150 puzzles in total within Ladders by POWGI, however for the platinum we are only required to complete 50 and complete a few miscellaneous tasks along the way.

Roadmap:

Step 1: Complete the puzzles outlined in Silver The Leashed You Could Do
The puzzles within this game progressively get harder as you work your way through the pages, so it is advised that you complete the first 22 puzzles until they start getting more rungs in the ladders and then move on as per the solutions in Silver The Leashed You Could Do.
You will need to
finish on the last puzzle to ensure you obtain Silver One Step Beyond, however below I have provided solutions to all the puzzles required for the Platinum within Silver The Leashed You Could Do.

Things to look out for –

  • For your first puzzle head to Silver A Descent Strategy to find how to obtain this trophy and the solution.
  • On the second puzzle head to Silver Rise to the Challenge to find how to obtain this trophy and the solution.
  • On the third puzzle head to Silver Making Ends Meet to find how to obtain this trophy and the solution.
  • You will need to go off track slightly to obtain BronzeGive me a “Q” in Puzzle 23 (which results in a failed level) and then return to the solutions list for the remaining trophies.
  • The same can be said for Gold Oh Grow Up! as we will need to earn this trophy in Puzzle 148, which is covered by the solutions in Silver The Leashed You Could Do.

Other than those above –

  • You will need to do nothing for 1 Minute to obtain Silver Paws for Thought
  • Make up a word a couple of times forBronze Watch Your Step & Silver Really Stepped In It
  • Reset any puzzle for Bronze He’s Gonna Step On You Again

After these you should have you shiny 40-platinum You Rung, M’Lord?

Watch Your Step
Try something that isn’t even a word

The trophy description explains enough within it to understand what is required for the trophy. You simply need to enter a letter into the Ladder that would make something that is not a word.

For me, I obtained this trophy within Puzzle 3 where I changed the C of the top word CAT to an A, thus making something that is not even a word “AAT“.

Really Stepped In It upscale-245262160018212
Try the same invalid word twice

Can be combined with Bronze Watch Your Step above. Try entering that A again for a second trophy.

He’s Gonna Step On You Again
Reset a puzzle back to the beginning

Simply enter a few words and then press a number of times to reset the puzzle back to its original state.

Oh Grow Up! Gold
It was harder this time, wasn’t it?

Lightwood Games’ favourite word returns for another outing and can be obtained in multiple puzzles.
For a quick reference head into Puzzle 148 and worked your way to the word in question.
