Introduction:

Welcome to the Rocket Punch Trophy Guide!
Rocket Punch is a purposefully goofy motion control game, that I had crazy fun playing! Strong with humour, and random madness, if you like your indie games on the crazy side then you’re gonna love this one 😀

It starts off energetic as you punch your way through scrolling levels on your quest to find the sun… The only hope for humanity with all this mess of global warming is to punch the sun right in the face! Using the movement of the light bar on your dualshock controller tracked by a PlayStation Camera to sock it to satellites, space cowboys, 80’s techno demons, and any other jerks in your way as you go.
But then the 2nd part of the game… Enters a whole new crazy world of Rocket Punch! With hilarious cutscenes, secrets, and an extra 11 game modes that can be played! 

Trophy-wise they are going to be nice and easy to get with this this guide, without a guide they would be pretty obscure to find yourself, as some are in secret places very well hidden, but I’ve got your back covered with all the info written below 🙂 

Roadmap: 

Step 1: Complete the levels, defeating the 5 bosses.
There will be 12 short levels to play, and every 2 levels will be a boss fight (except level 6 which will have no boss). You will get 6 trophies for defeating these bosses. When you have defeated the sun boss, that is this section of the game done. This part will take 20 minutes to complete. (You may need a little practice to start with to get used to the levels, but you’ll soon get the hang of it!)

In this step you’ll be earning these trophies:
Bronze Rocket Ride
Bronze Bang! Zoom!
Bronze Event Horizon
Bronze Beyond the Infinite
Bronze Hell’s Where They Wanna Be
Bronze Distracting Cameo

Step 2: Terminal menu 2nd part of the game, get the 4 keys and the real ending!
*I highly recommend getting these keys now first, when you first reach the terminal menu part of the game. Because once when I left getting the keys till last the trophies didn’t unlock for some reason.*
Find the 4 keys hidden in the game, use the video guide or trophy descriptions in the guide below to see how to get them, to get the true ending and the real beat the game trophy. 

During this step you’ll earn these trophies:
Bronze Ahoy-Hoy
Silver Key 101
Silver You Can Pet the Dog
Gold Key Finder Beginner
Silver Boss Hugman’s Putting Challenge
Gold Key FAQ Writer
Silver All Desert, No Bus
Gold Key Data Miner
Gold Thinking Outside the Box

Step 3: Terminal menu miscellaneous trophies.
Now all that’s left is to mop up all those miscellaneous trophies! They’re all very easy and quick to get, from the terminal menu just nip into each of the 11 other game modes, and use the video guide or trophy descriptions written below to see how to get all the rest of the remaining trophies!

During this final step you’ll earn the following trophies:
Silver Rootinest, Tootinest
Silver Night of Fire
Silver Legally Distinct Game Mode
Silver 16 Hit Combo
Silver It’s At Least a C+!
Silver It’s Raw!
Silver Compulsory Basic Training
Silver The Early Bird

Gold Avid Collector
Silver Everyone’s a Critic
Silver Master Photographer
Silver You’re Too Kind
Bronze Hackerman
Bronze F’s in the Chat
Bronze Bone Apple Tea
40-platinum Rocketeer
