Flock! is a puzzle game developed by Capcom. You pilot a UFO around vibrantly-colored landscapes herding livestock back to your mothership, aptly named the Motherflocker. Flock! has 55 singleplayer levels, and 17 multiplayer levels. It also has a built in level editor where you can create your own masterpieces or play levels uploaded by the community. The trophies have a difficulty rating of 5.5/10 which is accurate. None of the trophies are impossible, but many of them are very time consuming. Some levels will pose no problems and you will clear them on your very first attempt, while others will prove to be quite frustrating and result in multiple replays. If you are looking for a quick and easy game to obtain 100%, then avoid Flock! at all costs. The following steps should help you to obtain these trophies as quick as possible.
Complete the Singleplayer Campaign and obtain a "Perfect Abduction" on every level. Before I continue, you need to be aware of one trophy in this game. That trophy is called Master Flocker. To obtain this gold trophy, you must get a "Perfect Abduction" on every singleplayer and multiplayer level. This is, by far, the hardest trophy in the game and the one you should constantly be striving for. You are rewarded with a "Perfect Abduction" every time you successfully herd all livestock back to the Motherflocker. You need to exceed the animal requirements, not just meet them. If a single animal gets left behind or dies, you will have to replay the level. The Master Flocker trophy can cause a lot of frustration as all 55 single player levels must be completed perfectly. The Singleplayer Campaign can easily take 10+ hours to complete depending on how quickly you familiarise yourself with the controls.
Upon completion of STEP 1 you will obtain:
Unidentified Flocking Object
Don't Fence Me In
King Of The Skies
You might obtain:
Lumberjack The Ripper
Defender Of The Flock
Complete the Multiplayer Campaign and obtain a "Perfect Abduction" on every level. As described in STEP 1, your goal once again, is the gold Master Flocker trophy.
If you thought the Singleplayer Campaign was difficult, then you will hate the Multiplayer Campaign. Two SIXAXIS or DUAL SHOCK controllers are mandatory. The Multiplayer Campaign can be completed using two controllers at the same time, but if you can get a friend to help you it will make it that much easier. There are a few twists thrown into the Multiplayer Campaign. Sometimes Player 1 will only have the "Depressor" beam, and Player 2 will only have the "Tractor" beam. If you are playing solo, this means a lot of switching back and forth between controllers. There are also a few new items added such as boulders that will require both players to use their tractor beams at the same time, and gates that need to be raised by the player with the tractor beam, while the other player herds the animals through. The Multiplayer Campaign can easily take 2+ hours to complete, especially if you are on your own.
Upon completion of STEP 2 you will obtain;
You might obtain;
Make Your Mark
Now that you have the Master Flocker trophy out of the way you can focus on cleaning-up the rest of the trophies. The only trophy that cannot be obtained while playing through the Singleplayer or Multiplayer Campaign is The Continuous Cartographer. This one is pretty simple. This trophy requires you to create a single and multiplayer level and play them. The level can be as short or long as you want. Mine consisted of some land, 5 sheep, and the Motherflocker.
The two most difficult clean-up trophies are Fertiliser, and Make Your Mark. If you didn't manage to get them during STEP 1 or 2, then you should focus on them now. I would focus on Make Your Mark first. This trophy requires you to complete 10 crop circles. After you have completed all the crop circles and received the trophy start focusing on Fertiliser. This trophy requires you to make 50 piles of poo. Refer to switchfreak83's trophy guide for the exact locations of the crop circles, and for the best levels to make your poo piles. Trophy Guide
Upon completion of STEP 3 you will obtain;
The Continuous Cartographer
I hope this Road Map helps you.
[PS3T Would Like To Thank FiftyQuid For This Roadmap]
|COMPLETED FIRST LEVEL|| |
Pretty self explanatory, just run the sheep to the MotherFlocker and you're good to go!
|LUMBERJACK THE RIPPER|
|RIP UP 50 TREES (AGGREGATE TOTAL)|| |
Can only be done after you get your tractor beam ability. (Level 14: "Tractors and Gates") Hover over a tree. Hold in R2 to pull at the tree and strafe left or right. If you can't get a tree try moving more slowly when strafing, eventually you'll yank the leaves off. Some trees are more difficult to rip up than others for some reason.
NOTE: Once you've got all the trees just clear the level and return to the level select map. DON'T HIT RETRY OR RESTART! The totals only count for completed stages. A retry or restart erases the stats for that map.
|THE CONTINUOUS CARTOGRAPHER|
|PLAY THROUGH ONE USER-CREATED SINGLEPLAYER LEVEL AND ONE USER-CREATED MULTIPLAYER LEVEL|| |
These must be levels YOU have created. Go into the level editor. Make up a quick singleplayer map and save it. Then play it from your level select screen. Do the same with a multiplayer map.
|UNIDENTIFIED FLOCKING OBJECT|
|ABDUCT 20 ANIMALS (AGGREGATE TOTAL)|| |
Simple. You'll get it easily just by playing the game. Should have it by the end of level 3.
|MAKE 50 PILES OF POO (AGGREGATE TOTAL)|| |
Can only be done after you get your Depressor Beam ability. (Level 24: "Rolling Fields") Use the Depressor Beam on Cows and Calves. The best levels I've found are: 17 and 53. Simply get a herd of cows underneath you and start using 1-2 second bursts of the depressor beam. Cows can take more damage than the Calves obviously, so change your time accordingly. When you see some poo hit the ground it will be a tiny pile, the idea is to get the piles big enough that a +100 Points pops out. That's an official Pile of Poo! Get 50 of those for the trophy.
NOTE: Once you've killed all your cows, just Launch back to the ship (Triangle) or finish the level. DON'T HIT RETRY OR RESTART! The totals only count for completed stages. A retry or restart erases the stats for that map.
|FLOCK 25 ANIMALS AT ONCE|| |
Again, not too difficult. Can first be done on Level 8: "Dyed in the Wool". Just flock all the sheep at once and the trophy will unlock. You don't have to get them all into the ship at once, just get them on the run as a group.
|DON'T FENCE ME IN|
|KNOCK OVER 50 FENCES WITH A COW (AGGREGATE TOTAL)|| |
Some maps require cows to run through gates and let other animals through. Should unlock naturally as you play through the game. If you want a quick fix, a good map is Level 9: "Do Have A Cow". Lots of gates and no ledges to lose cows off of.
NOTE: Once you've knocked down all the gates, just finish the level. DON'T HIT RETRY OR RESTART! The totals only count for completed stages. A retry or restart erases the stats for that map
|KING OF THE SKIES|
|FLY AND LAND 75 CHICKENS (AGGREGATE TOTAL)|| |
Again, this should be unlocked just by playing through that game. Notable map would be Level 15: "Chickens Go Cluck". 14 chickens, very quick level, and again, no real way to lose them to ledges. Keep an eye out for the Night-Time Predator though!
NOTE: Once you've landed your chickens, just finish the level. DON'T HIT RETRY OR RESTART! The totals only count for completed stages. A retry or restart erases the stats for that map
|MAKE YOUR MARK|
|COMPLETE 10 CROP CIRCLES (AGGREGATE TOTAL)|| |
Alright. I FINALLY got this trophy!!! The description on this one is a bit off. It should actually read: COMPLETE ALL CROP CIRCLES IN SINGLEPLAYER AND MULTIPLAYER. When doing the multiplayer circles be sure and use CONTROLLER 1 as the depressor beam. If you use controller 2 for crushing the circles it won't count as it's not your stats. It's like a guest account slot. Also be SURE and COMPLETE the levels after you make the circles. Doesn't have to be Perfect Abduction, just meet the required amount of animals!
Singleplayer Crop Circles (5):
Level 26: "Crop Circle Conundrum" (2 Circles)
Level 42: "The Udder Way"
Level 48: "Poo Pits of Peril"
Level 49: "Hog Lob"
Multiplayer Crop Circles (6):
Level 9: "Field of Dreams"
Level 10: "Making Bacon"
Level 11: "Swinging Low"
Level 12: "Un-Hedged"
Level 13: "Star Crossed Lovers"
Level 14: "Weedy Sheep"
|USE 3 LOVE PATCHES IN 3 MINUTES|| |
Just play through Level 43: "Love Machine". Get all the Ewe's ready to go then do fly-by and push the fellas onto the patches. Chicka-Wow-Wow!
|KILL 10 CHICKENS WITH ONE THROW OF A BOULDER - STRIKE!|| |
I used Level 50: "A-MAZE-ING" for this one. I ran all the chickens through the maze until the very last corner. Then took a hen up to the love patch with the rooster that's waiting there. Then I took the rooster, hen and new baby chicks back to the corner with the other chickens. Grouped them all together and chucked the boulder at them. There are a lot more than 10 so this should be an easy unlock.
ALT STRATEGY FROM Darkangel269: On the first level you see chickens and a boulder (Level 16) instead of dropping the boulder down the hill and bowling down the chickens in the valley... herd them into one of the corners of the brick wall and drop the boulder on top of them all at once. Even if a few aren't hit immediately, the boulder rolls downhill a bit and gets the remaining few without issue.
NOTE: I've also heard that Level 52: "Three Strikes Makes A Turkey" works well too. Seeing as it's, you know, a bowling alley theme and all.
|DEFENDER OF THE FLOCK|
|COMPLETE A LEVEL FEATURING THE NIGHT-TIME PREDATOR WITHOUT LETTING IT EAT ANY ANIMALS|| |
Level 15: "Chickens Go Cluck". Just herd the chickens quickly to the MotherFlocker. If you hear a howling noise, that's your cue that the Predator is going to make a run at your poultry. Scan the nearby trees for his red eyes. When he charges in just get your beam between him and the chickens and he will retreat.
|GET A PERFECT ABDUCTION ON ALL LEVELS, SINGLEPLAYER AND MULTIPLAYER|| |
Not as hard as it sounds. You don't have to get the gold time bonus for a perfect abduction. You just need to get all the animals to the ship. So take your time and you shouldn't have too much trouble. If you have any level-specific issues feel free to ask.
