Introduction:

Welcome to the The Perplexing Orb 2 Trophy Guide!
The fun sequel created by TreeFall Studios!

The Perplexing Orb returns! Experience a new bunch of 70+ levels in this fun puzzle platforming adventure game sequel. This time you will have some new abilities to discover to solve the various puzzles to complete the story mode.

The trophy list is nice and straightforward, you just need to hit the finish post in 60 different stages, you need to collect the tokens from 55 stages, and there is just 3 simple miscellaneous trophies that you can grab at any point via stage select. All the other trophies will naturally unlock while completing the game.  

Roadmap:

Step 1: Hit the finish post in 60 levels. Collect the tokens in 55 levels.
There are 70 stages, 3 bonus stages, and the final stage. For trophies you only need to finish 60 stages. So you can stage skip 10 stages if you desire. 
For trophies you also only need to grab all the tokens from 55 stages. So that is 15 stages you don’t need to grab tokens from. The stats of what numbers you are on will show in the bottom left corner of the world map screen.

In this step you’ll earn these trophies:
Bronze Post is Toast
Bronze Post Roast
Bronze Roasting Posts
Bronze Posts are falling the Most
Bronze Host of falling Posts
Silver Posts, Posts, Posts!
Silver Toasting all these Posts
Silver How Many Posts Can This Orb Roast?
Gold Kicking These Posts All the Way to the Coast
Gold Hosting A Post Post Roast
Bronze One Token
Bronze A Few Tokens
Bronze Some More Tokens
Silver A Growing Collection of Tokens
Silver A Healthy Number of Tokens
Silver Tokens Getting Up There
Silver Quite a Few Tokens Here and There
Silver Tokens Really are Everywhere
Gold A Hefty Collection of Tokens
Gold A Towering Stack of Tokens
Gold A Perplexing Amount of Tokens
Bronze Oh the places you will go!
Bronze Just Along for the Ride

Step 2: Play the final stage!
You need to hit the finish post in 60 different stages to unlock the final stage.
When it is unlocked play and complete this final stage which is a fun mash up of all the previous worlds, to complete the game.

During this step you’ll earn the trophy:
Gold The Path of Perplexity
 

Step 3: Miscellaneous trophy mop up.
This may be an unnecessary step for some of you as you may have naturally unlocked these 3 trophies while completing the game. If not, simply go to stage select to grab them. All you need to do is hit the continue post from the game over screen, complete stage 10 without dying, and complete stage 48 without dying. 

During this step you’ll earn these final trophies:
Bronze The Will to Continue
Bronze Smart Cookie
Gold Cool cool cool, cool cool cool.
40-platinum Not So Perplexing After All Pt 2

Tips and Strategies:

The main tip I can give you to make this platinum as quick and simple as possible for you, is how to most efficiently use stage skips. You only need to complete 60 stages and as there are 70 stages that means we can skip 10. 
To skip a stage simply press the options button to get to the pause menu, then select ‘Skip Level’.
Here are my personal recommendations of which stages to skip, for what I deem to be the trickiest or just longest stages:
Stage 16
Stage 20
Stage 26
Stage 29
Stage 33
Stage 40
Stage 54
Stage 59
Stage 60
Stage 65

Lastly I do recommend checking out my platinum walkthrough trophy guide video linked below, showing you how to complete all the stages, with tips, showing you how to complete the platinum in 27 minutes 🙂
