Cubixx HD is a fast paced action puzzle game which sends high scoring, combo chasing game play to the third dimension! It was first released as a minis and, since the ideas presented in it where solid enough, Laughing Jackal decided to create a PSN version with improvements to the main game, extra game modes and trophies.
Before starting, watch this video that Laughing Jackal was kind enough to put together for us so you can save a LOT of time by following their advice:
Also, here's a list of all the power-ups available in the game along with the effects they provide:
GREEN POWER UPS
Freeze: Stops enemies in their tracks for 5 seconds - 1000 points
Speed Up: Boosts a players speed for 10 seconds - 1000 points
Shield: Protects the players from enemies for 10 seconds - 1000 points
Extra Life: Awards and extra life in Arcade Mode - 1000 points
Kill: Awards a kill in Death Match</blockquote>
RED POWER UPS
Fast Forward: Speeds up enemies for 10 seconds - 15000 points
Slow Down: Slows the player down for 10 seconds - 1000 points
Asteroid Attack: Fires some asterios at the Cube - 15000 points
Combo Breaker: Removes 1 level of a players combo - 15000 points
Reversi: Reverses the players control for 10 seconds - 15000 points
Sacrifice: Kills the Player - 1 point
BLUE POWER UPS
Points: Awards you with 20000 points
Super Points: Awards you with 40000 points
Combo Boost: Increases your combo by 1 and awards you with 1000 points
Step 1: Complete Arcade Mode
All extra modes and levels are locked from the start until you finish Arcade Mode. Doing so will get you n00B SAuCe and Do Robots have feelings? and maybe Super Combo. If you manage to complete it start to finish in a single run then you'll also unlock Mad Skillz. If that's the case, then skip to Step 3.
Step 2: Complete Arcade Mode in a Single Run
Oh what a great ride this will be! Extra lives (both power ups and those obtained from each 200,000 points scored) are your best friend so start stocking up on them since level 1. Shouldn't take you more than 1 and a half hours.
Step 3: Complete Arcade Mode in Co-op
Easier to do with an actual human player as using two controllers at the same time will break your mind.
Step 4: Complete all Challenges With a Platinum Award
Here's where you'll spend most of your time since Challenges do their name justice and will put you to the test. Don't worry about dying A LOT while going for the platinum challenges since that will just bring you closer to Perseverance .
Step 5: Clean Up
You'll aim for any trophies missing from your collection. The "hardest" one will probably be Mr. Popular since you need 7 controllers for it as reassigning controllers doesn't work here.

Complete your first level in Arcade mode
Can't be missed. You'll get it as soon as you finish the first level in arcade mode.
Achieve a combo over 6
Says get a combo over 6... which means you need a combo of 7. Makes sense, right? Except that the in-game tutorial specifically tells you that the max combo is 6. Confused? You should be! To get this you need to get a combo of 6 and, while you're at that magic number, grab a Blue Power Combo Boost that increases your Combo by 1 (looks like a chain) and Ding! Combo 7!
Complete Co-Op Arcade mode
Just need another controller to start Arcade Mode in Co-op. Could be done with MORE controllers but.. why make it harder and more hectic than it already is? You can put player 2 in a "nest" (see video in roadmap) to keep him safe from most hazards and enemies and since you're invincible right at the start of each level it you can take that time to prepare things thus this trophy CAN be done by yourself but will take you longer.
Get every feat in a single level
Here's a list of all the feats available in the game. As the trophy says, you must get them all in a single level in order for the trophy to unlock.
Divide and conquer: Clear 50% or more of a single side of the cube in one single line.
Killer: Kill 5 enemies (mini cubixx and line chasers are the only ones you can kill)
Big face: Clear 80% or more of a single side of the cube (DOES NOT have to be done in a single line)
Mega line: Make a single huge line (over 1,000 long)
Hoarding: You get it after grabing a 5th power up (good or bad) on a single level.
Speed machine: Quickly finish a level.
Invincible: Finish a level without loosing a single life.
Combos: Get 5 Combo 3 (start a line and then change to 2 different sides of the cube and complete the line for the combo to register. Repeat 4 more times)
Master: You get it for doing all the other feats. Trophy unlocks right after this feat registers.
Thanks to lade73 for helping test this out and coming up with the Combos feat!
Score over 1,000,000 points from a single line
Can be done as early as in level 1. What you need to do is start a line by pressing , or and not letting go so you can change to all sides of the cube and stack up the combo all the way up to combo 6. Once you got that you just need to snake over and over AWAY from the Cubixx (as to not risk them touching your line and killing you which will require you to restart the level as you just lost your combo AND your long line) until you've got a line that is 9,000 long or more.
Complete a level by cutting away 250 lines or more
Can be done on level 1. Just start cutting away a tiny piece of the cube (2x2 or 3x3 as to not risk touching your own line) and you've got three lines right there. Repeat on and on and on and on until the trophy unlocks. Cutting away small parts is the way to go since doing bigger ones would put you at the risk of completing the level BEFORE getting the trophy. Should you THINK you did it and it didn't unlock and you complete the level in frustation... remember that the end of level recap screen tells you EXACTLY how many lines you used and this will help you see how you must be a bit more patient the second time around.
Kill 101 or more enemies in a single level
101, huh? Well, line chasers re-spawn quickly so a high % level where you take baby steps is where you can jut farm them over and over (while nesting) until the trophy unlocks. I got it on level 29. Just be careful and don't ever collect the Red Fast Forward Power Up or you'll be dead in an instant.
Kill 2 or more friends in Co-Op
Start a Co-op game with 2 more controllers and place them in a spot you can cut around so they both go bye bye at the same time and you get your bronze trophy without a problem.
Complete a level in less than 8.88 seconds
Tricky one. From the description you'd think you have to accomplish this in one of the 50 levels available in Arcade Mode... but you'd be wrong. Where you CAN do this is on the challenges, especifically on Speed Freak 1 while going for the platinum award. Takes less than 9 seconds to obtain!
Complete a 7-player Deathmatch game
No way around it. You need SEVEN controllers for this to work as there's no online play. Start a Death Match with seven controllers and play until the end. Trophy unlocked!
The good news is that Dualshock 3 and Move Controllers all count... as does the PS3 Bluray Remote! But wait, there's more! GH guitars, DJ Hero turntables and even the Rock Band keyboard all work to activate a full deat match. Found 7 controllers already?
Beat level 36 in under 40 seconds. (Single player Arcade mode only)
Level 36 has a 65% requirement. There's really no special strategy for this level since by the time you're at this spot you'll definitely know what you're doing. A bit of luck is involved since I was presented with two Freeze Power Ups that made it very, very easy.
Complete all Challenge levels to at least Bronze standard
You'll get this while working towards getting G.O.A.T. Bronze requirements are easy enough in case you want to get this trophy out of the way before trying to get all Platinum.
Pick up 500 negative (red) Powers
Red (baaaad) Power Ups are great for building up your score but make the levels harder. At least you'll increase your chances of going up on the leaderboards and get a trophy out of it! Level 27 has the most Red Power Ups (they appear constantly on all sides of the Cube) so use it to farm out the trophy if you want to obtain it quickly. Avoid the asteroids that spawn from the red power up and you'll be fine.

Complete all Challenge levels to Platinum standard
Here's where you'll spend most of your time in Cubixx HD. Challenges are single levels where you only have one life to complete the specific requirement for each level and there are Bronze, Silver, Gold and Platinum requirements to meet to make things even more interesting. Platinum requirements are HIDDEN until AFTER you obtain them which can be a bit of a hassle since not knowing what the threshold is can make you fall short of it or really overshoot. Lucky for you, here's a list with the platinum requirements for each Challenge:

Thanks to ER777 for helping with part of the platinum award requirements!
Score 5,000,000 points or more on a single level
Take to level 27 and collect as many Red Power Ups as you can to drive up your score. Should take you about 20 minutes AND it helps with obtaining Risky Business. Asteroids are slow in this level so you can just move out of the way easily.
Complete Arcade mode in a single run
You must start on state one in Arcade Mode and not get a game over at all. Once you finish level 50 the trophy will unlock. Take things slowly and chip away at each level to minimize he risk of loosing a life and you'll get there eventually. Level 27 is a great mid-point to stock up on lives again by following the instructions for Risky Business. Should take you about 2 hours if you take your time and stay on the safe side. Nesting is your friend!
Do Robots have feelings?
Complete Arcade Mode
Just as it says, complete Arcade Mode. No problem with getting a game over as you can just continue from the last unlocked stage. You'll get it after completing level 50.
Die 500 times trying the Challenges
Don't worry about it as it will come naturally from trying to obtain all Platinum Awards in the challenge levels. If you REALLY want to get it A.S.A.P. then you can just die over and over on the first challenge but it WILL take you A LOT of time this way and said time would be better spent going for G.O.A.T.
Line Me to the Moon
Draw lines amounting to the distance from Earth to the Moon
The distance from the Earth to the Moon is 356,400 km to 406,700 km (about 221,456 to 252,711 mi) which is a big enough number to scare you away from this trophy... but there's nothing to fear. Going for Do Robots have feelings?, Mad Skillz and G.O.A.T will allow you to also get this trophy. If for some reason you managed to get Do Robots have feelings? and Mad Skillz in a single run AND get G.O.A.T without Line Me to the Moon then just replay Arcade Mode one more time to get the required total.

Nice guide EdEN, it's helped a lot already.
For the Whooper trophy I tried with a line of just over 8,000 with x6 and only got 900,000 score. Did it again with a line of 12,000 and got just short of 1.6mil. So it might be safer going for about 9-10,000.

Glad I can help! Guide is finished in my pen and paper notes so I'll type it tomorrow.
The Whopper unlocked for me with a line at 8,055 and a combo 6 that gave me just a bit over 1 million but to play it safe I'll move it to 9,000 in case it glitched for me in a good way. Can't edit right now since I'm on my phone but I'll get it all done tomorrow. Adding the platinum award requirements for the Challenges so you know what to aim for.

Luckily I had more than seven of them lying around and 2 GHWT dongles with the 2 USB slots lol
I was also a little confused on the Betrayal! trophy. Kill 2 or more friends in Co-Op at the same time is what it should have said.
Platinum #79: Family Game Night 4 ~ 100% #143 - Castlevania Harmony of Despair ~ Working on: ???
Do not send me blank friend requests please! I do not game share. I do not earn plats for others. You will be ignored if you ask for either. Thank you!

Land Rush 1: Gold is to make 3 faces over 90% each so I imagine Platinum is make 3 faces over 90% which I've yet to achieve.
Just finished Platinum for the above it says to achieve: 3 faces over 92%

Huh, nice tip! I've got two Duashock 3, a wired one and the PS3 Bluray Remote. I'm getting a move bundle next week and an extra move controller so that's 6. Guess a cheap $10 wired (and used) PS3 controller gets me the last trophy!
