Introduction:

Welcome to the Tinker Racers Trophy Guide!
The dream of 2 brothers has come to reality! Tinker Racers is “a micromachines-like game for multiple players” that has you attached the second you start playing. Plenty of fun and difficulty to keep you engaged throughout you Campaign, with a challenging Time Attack for those that are ready to take on the developers times.

Currently Relevant for v1.00 – It is highly recommended that you play this game in one sitting, as my progress in Time Attack & Single Race was reset after starting the game up again. This has been reported to the Developers & Publishers.

Roadmap:

Step 1: Introduction Race
Play through the Introduction/Tutorial Race to learn about the mechanics and how to score points etc. This will teach you everything you need to know about before heading into the main game.

You’ll be earning these trophies:
Bronze Just Scored
Bronze I Got It
Bronze Perfect Victory

Step 2: Multiplayer/CoOp Trophies
Here you will need 4 controllers in order to obtain Silver Unbeatable Squad. All the Multiplayer trophies need to be obtained within Campaign, so would suggest that you quickly knock them out on the first Campaign race to make them as easy as possible.
These trophies do not stack, so you will need to complete 3 individual races in order to get all 3 trophies.

During this step you’ll earn these trophies:
Bronze Score: 5000
Bronze Unbeatable Duo
Silver Unbeatable Trio
Silver Unbeatable Squad

Step 3: Campaign Mode
In order to unlock the tracks required for the Single Races & Time Attack you will need to play through the Campaign Mode first. Here you will compete in 18 races over 3 different types of rooms. As you progress the game will get progressively harder, however there is not too much to worry about here.
The object of the events here is to get far enough in the lead so that the AI disappear off of the screen and you will score. Be the first to 5 points and the race is over.
You will also be awarded points based on how much life you have remaining, and the final score, which will be needed for your journey to Gold Score: 50000.

During this step you’ll earn the following trophies:
Bronze Nailed The Bedroom
Bronze Lights Off
Silver Kitchen Master
Silver Nailed The Kitchen
Gold Office Master
Silver Nailed The Office

And probably:
Bronze Score: 10000

Step 4: Single Races
The next 2 steps can be completed in any order, however I would suggest the races first as these can serve as a reminder of the tracks prior to starting the Time Attacks (which is the hardest part of the road to Platinum). 
All you will need to do is win the a 5 lap race at each of the 18 tracks to earn yourself some more points towards Gold Score: 50000.
These are purely races and there is no need to destroy enemies etc.

During this step you’ll earn the following trophies:
Bronze Little Racer
Silver Big Little Racer

And probably:
Bronze Score: 15000
Bronze Score: 20000
Bronze Score: 25000
Bronze Score: 30000

Step 5: Time Attack
During this step you will need to beat the best times that the developers could manage in all 18 tracks to obtain Gold The Best Of The Best. This is a nice blend of difficulty introduced into an otherwise relatively easy game.

During this step you’ll earn the following trophies:
Silver Starting My Training
Silver Mastering It
Gold Training Hard
Gold The Best Of The Best

And probably:
Bronze Score: 35000
Silver Score: 40000
Silver Score: 45000
Gold Score: 50000

Step 6: Miscellaneous
This step is only needed if you have not obtained any of the trophies below. Feel free to check out the relevant trophy descriptions if you are missing any.

During this step you’ll earn the following trophies:
Silver Destroyer
Silver Owl Eyes
Silver Pilot Expert
Gold Phoenix

Nailed The Bedroom

You will need to win all 6 races within the Bedroom layout by scoring 5 points against the AI. The game pits yourself (And your teammates) directly against all the AI in the screen, so be wary that all the AI will be gunning for you.
Tracks are unlocked when you have won the previous, so it is easy to track which events you have won previously.

Lights Off

Dark mode is unlocked after winning Kitchen Track 1. As soon as you have done this you’ll be able to go for Bronze Lights Off.

The trophy description says it all; you will need to “win any track of the Kitchen in campaign mode without dying or falling”. This can be obtained in any of the 6 tracks in the Kitchen layout, however it is easier to do whilst on Kitchen Track 1. 
If you do not obtain this after completing all 6 races in this layout then head into Kitchen Track 1 and repeat until you have managed to nail it.

Unbeatable Duo

You will need to add a second controller in order to obtain this trophy. Whilst the game is fun in CoOperative Mode, there is no real need to race with the second controller if you do not want to.
As with the single player trophies the game pits yourself (And your teammates) directly against all the AI in the screen, so you can easily still win if your second player does not move.

This is easiest on Bedroom Track 1.

Phoenix Gold
Win any track in Campaign mode with less than 5% of health

You may earn this trophy automatically, however as stated in the description you will need to win any track in Campaign mode with less than 5% of health. This can be obtained within any track layout and is probably the easiest on Bedroom Track 1. 

Whilst going for this try not too speed too far in front otherwise you will score too quickly and not have enough chance to damage yourself. 

Unbeatable Trio upscale-245262160018212
Win any track in Campaign Mode with 3 players

You will need to add a 2 more controllers in order to obtain this trophy. Whilst the game is fun in CoOperative Mode, there is no real need to race with the other controllers if you do not want to.
As with the single player trophies the game pits yourself (And your teammates) directly against all the AI in the screen, so you can easily still win if your other players do not move.

Owl Eyes upscale-245262160018212
Win any track in Dark Mode

You will need to earn Bronze Lights Off prior to attempting this trophy. Dark mode is exactly that and makes the race so much harder with just headlights as your guide. Take as much time as you can with this one and focus on the outline of the track more than your opponents.

It is recommended to go for this trophy on Bedroom Track 1 and in order to switch to Dark Mode you will need to switch the light off from the Main Menu.

No damage is done to the opponent by hitting them, so you will need to take your time and keep trying to push them offline.

Big Little Racer upscale-245262160018212
Win all tracks in Single Race Mode

Little Racer
Win a track in Single Race Mode

Obtained by winning your first race on any track during Single Race Mode.
See Silver Big Little Racer.

Pilot Expert upscale-245262160018212
Win any track of the Office in Campaign Mode with more than 95% of health

This one can be a little annoying, however being as we have 4 controllers available for Silver Unbeatable Squad we have a way to cheese it with the help of your teammates blocking the AI.

If you have 4 controllers connected you will start the first race at the front of the pack, so race out in front and make sure not to hit anything.
After scoring your first point do not move for the next restart so that you lose a point straight away and start at the front for the next restart. Repeat these steps to win the event 5-4.

The Best Of The Best Gold
Beat all developers’ records in Time Attack Mode

This is where it gets tough. The developers set their best times in each track layout and it is now your objective to beat them.
The developers were somewhat generous here, as I believe they stuck to the racing line the whole way round, unlike us, we’re going to cheat…..

On most track layouts there are a number of corners that can be cut slightly in order to achieve a faster time. It is crucial that you take your time to understand the track and where you can push the limits of the racing line, as most of them have a certain area that can really be beneficial to cut.
If you are clever enough you can also manipulate the obstacles by pushing them out of the way to give yourself a bigger chance of beating the times.

Once you have manipulated your new track layout it is now time to keep running the track over and over to obtain a quicker time than the developers.

Starting My Training upscale-245262160018212
Set a record in Time Attack Mode

This will be obtained automatically whilst going for Gold The Best Of The Best. You do not need to set below any specific time for this trophy, as it will register as a record once you have completed your first lap.

See Gold The Best Of The Best for some tips to beat all the developers records.
