Introduction:

Welcome to the SpongeBob Squarepants: Plankton’s Robotic Revenge Trophy Guide!
Who lives in a pineapple under the sea? Spongebob Squarepants, and this very easy platinum trophy. Join Spongebob and his friends as they fight to save Bikini Bottom from another one of Plankton’s evil schemes!

Roadmap:

Step 1: Complete the Game Solo With any Character Except Mr. Krabs
You will want to complete the entire game with any character except for Mr. Krabs. You could play the entire game in co-op with multiple controllers, however I suggest playing through the entire game solo, so that only one character will receive the upgrade sprockets. This step should take no more than three or four hours to complete, and should net you at least half of the trophies.

You’ll be earning these trophies:
Gold Pirateer
Gold Hard Rock
Gold Beach Head
Bronze Bot Wrecker
Bronze Seaweed Squashed
Bronze Lock and Load
Bronze Skydiver
Bronze Master Overloader
Bronze Decked Out
Gold Armed to the Gills

Step 2: Cleaning up the Miscellaneous and Multiplayer Trophies
You will now want to go after the last few miscellaneous trophies, as well as the multiplayer trophies. This game requires 4 controllers in order to be able to obtain the platinum trophy. This step shouldn’t take more than an hour.

During this step you’ll earn these trophies:
Bronze Coral Skydiver
Bronze Sea Warrior
Bronze Field Medic
Bronze Not Defeated Yet
Gold Team Sponge

Step 3: The Big Grind
This is where you will spend a lot of your time, as you have to grind enough sprockets to fully upgrade all five characters. If you’ve played as only one character for your entire first playthrough, you will have already earned enough sprockets to fully upgrade one character’s gizmos. Refer to Gold Master Crab for information about this grind.

During this step you’ll earn the following trophies:
Gold Master Sponge
Gold Master Squirrel
Gold Master Star
Gold Master Squid
Gold Master Crab

40-platinum Platinum SpongeBob

Tips and Strategies:

  • Plankton’s Robotic Revenge (PRR) is a very easy game intended for a young audience. It is considered to be a spiritual sequel to Spongebob: Battle For Bikini Bottom, but this game is terrible compared to BFBB.
  • The game consists of 15 levels divided into three worlds. Each level is basically the same; running through shooting or melee killing various enemies in near identical looking levels. It’s not a lot of fun.
  • The large number of gold trophies makes this game very worth picking up, though you’ll be working on it for a few days due to the amount of grinding required.
  • Break everything and kill every enemy you see, as both of these actions will earn you sprockets, which may cut down on the grinding a bit.
  • This game has no difficulty levels, and really, each character will offer the same degree of “difficulty” while playing through.
  • The Hub World for this game is just a little area with three portals, each of which corresponds to one of the three worlds. From there, you can choose which level you want to play.
  • The final level of each world will contain a boss fight, though none of them are particularly difficult.

Grind

Grinding out the necessary number of sprockets to buy and fully upgrade every gizmo is time consuming and very boring. Each character will require a total of 39,150 sprockets to fully upgrade everything, for a grand total of 195,750 sprockets for all five characters. You will get five sprockets for each barrel you destroy, and up to eight for each enemy you destroy. The red bots will drop big silver sprockets worth 20 standard ones, so they are always worth getting. There are two good methods for grinding out sprockets:

  1. Replay the entire game as each character. This will require you to complete boss fights and freefall sections, as well as fight the tougher third world enemies, so it is more challenging and arguably more time consuming. However, this method is a little more fun, as you get to replay all the levels instead of just a couple of them.
  2. My preferred method was to replay a portion of the first world; from the beginning of the second level through the freefall section of the fourth level. This method is faster, as you won’t have to fight any bosses or tougher enemies, and you will be able to earn more sprockets per minute of playing. It is still boring, but should make the sprocket grind go faster, so I suggest this method.

Whatever method you choose, you will be grinding sprockets for a good five hours or more, so be ready.

A NOTE ABOUT MR KRABS
Now, I stated in the roadmap that you should complete the game your first time through as any character aside from Mr. Krabs. The reason I made this suggestion is because Mr. Krabs’s special ability (the  button) will increase the amount of sprockets you get for a short time. Because of this, you would be able to get Mr. Krabs’s gizmos maxed out earlier than the other characters, and therefore the sprockets on the remaining levels would be worthless (sprockets can’t transfer between characters). So, I highly suggest using any other character for your full playthrough and save Mr. Krabs for either a second playthrough or the second method I listed.

Bot Wrecker
Players destroy 250 enemies.

As long as you are playing solo, you will easily get this during the second world of the game. Even if you play through it in multiplayer, you might still get this done before completing the game.

Seaweed Squashed
Win the first encounter against Plankton.

You will unlock this trophy upon beating Plankton at the end of the first level, just after the freefall section. Just keep shooting his weak point ( to shoot) and he will go down quickly.

Lock and Load
Unlock the Pickle Blaster.

This should be the first trophy that you unlock. You will earn it early in the first level of the first world, around the time you find the first upgrade machine.

Skydiver
Complete the first freefall section.

You will unlock this trophy during the first level of the first world. Freefall sections are indicated by giant tornadoes that you have to jump into in order to progress. Once you jump in, you will have to dodge flying debris by moving around the screen until you get to the bottom.

Coral Skydiver
Complete any freefall section without any players taking damage.

This is arguably the most difficult trophy in the game, though it still isn’t that tough. In order to unlock it, you must complete any freefall section without hitting any of the debris. You basically have to do this solo, as having more players greatly increases the chances that somebody will get hit. There really isn’t a good way to walk you through this trophy, as the freefall sections will be somewhat different each time you play through one.

Unfortunately, this trophy is also kind of buggy because you will sometimes get hit by a piece of debris even when you clearly don’t touch it. This will probably take a few tries and a lucky run, but it still isn’t too bad. The first freefall section (in Shipwreck Reef) is the shortest and the easiest. The video below shows the trophy being unlocked on one of the later freefall sections of the game. Skip to about the five minute mark to see the freefall.

Sea Warrior
Complete a level without being defeated or revived.

This trophy should come just by playing through the game. Simply complete any of the 15 levels of the game without dying or being revived (if playing in co-op). You should have no problem doing this.

Master Overloader
Players defeat 50 enemies by overloading them.

The turret bots are the enemies that can be overcharged. You will encounter well over 50 throughout the game, so as long as you play solo, you will get this by the start of the third world.

Field Medic
Players revive allies 20 times.

2 Controllers needed

To revive an ally, you need to stand in the green circle around their downed body and hold the indicated button. This trophy, as well as Bronze Not Defeated Yet, can be done with two controllers, but using four total makes it go a bit faster. Simply go to any section of the game where there is a large number of enemies, turn on at least one more controller, and kill all but two or three of the enemies. Then, let those enemies kill all of your allies, revive them, and repeat until you have done 20 revives. I recommend doing this on any of the Dutchman’s Triangle levels, so you are less likely to be killed while reviving.

Not Defeated Yet
Players revive an ally.

2 Controllers needed

See Bronze Field Medic for more information about reviving.

Decked Out
Unlock and fully upgrade any Gizmo.

Collecting enough sprockets to fully upgrade any one gizmo will come very early on in the game. You should have more than enough sprockets to fully upgrade the pickle blaster by the end of the second level, so this trophy is basically unmissable.

Armed to the Gills Gold
Unlock every Gizmo on a single character.

This trophy will unlock after you purchase all seven gizmos for any one character (you don’t have to upgrade any of them for this specific trophy). This will cost 4500 sprockets to do, and you will easily be able to do this early during your first playthrough, so it is basically unmissable.

Team Sponge Gold
Complete a level with 4 players.

4 Controllers needed

This trophy will likely be the platinum breaker for some players, as not everyone has access to four controllers (this game does not have online co-op). You CAN use Move controllers, or any combination of Moves and Dualshocks, but you need to have four controllers.

You do not actually have to complete an entire level with four controllers plugged in. Load up the first level of the game (Shipwreck Reef), and play solo until you get to the freefall section late in the level. Go ahead and turn on the other three controllers at that time, then simply complete the freefall section to unlock the trophy (if it doesn’t unlock immediately, just finish the boss fight and it should pop then). Alternatively, if you have four human players, feel free to play through any level with all four people, as this might be more fun.
