There are 12 Trophies that can be earned in this title.
Featuring enhanced gameplay elements, including the classic Sonic Spin Dash, and the versatile Homing Attack, Sonic 4 picks up right where Sonic & Knuckles left off. Sonic 4: Ep 1 is another love it or hate it game, because the physics are completely way off compared to the original Sonic Genesis games. But with beautiful looking stages including Casino Street Zone in HD, you can enjoy the game 'til the end, ignoring the horrible physics.
|The Story Begins|
|Clear SPLASH HILL ZONE, ACT 1.|
A very simple trophy. Nothing else I can say for this, but for you to just clear the first stage.
|Crush Dr. Eggman|
|Defeat a boss for the first time.|
After completing Splash Hill Zone: Act 3, the next act you have to complete is to defeat Dr. Eggman. Simply defeat him and the trophy is yours.
|The First Chaos Emerald|
|Acquire a Chaos Emerald.|
Collect and at least have 50 rings before you finish the stage. You'll see a massive gold ring after the clear stage billboard. Jump towards the massive gold ring and go through the middle of it. That would take you to the special stage. Simply clear it and the trophy is yours. Be careful, you'll get booted off the stage if you hit the "!" marks or you run out of time. If you are running out of time or see yourself getting towards the "!" block, quickly press Pause and hit Retry.
|Defeat 1,000 enemies.|
You will not get this trophy on your first playthrough. Don't worry if you don't have it by the end of the first playthrough because you must do a second playthrough anyway (via Time Attack) to get 100%. Simply defeat any enemy you come across, much easier with Super Sonic.
|Clear all Acts as Super Sonic.||(1)|
You must go through every act again (excluding bosses and special stage) and clear it as Super Sonic. During an act, make your ring counter reach 50, then press/hold the and buttons together to transform. Again you *must* clear the stage with Super Sonic, so try not to die or run out of time! (Yes when you transform, like in Sonic Genesis games your ring counter will go down by 1 per second).
|All Stages Cleared!|
|Defeat the final boss and view the ending.|
You must complete all acts and bosses with Sonic. The E.G.G Station Zone is hidden until you complete all 4 zones. Simply defeat Dr. Eggman with all his creations (Be warned! The final boss WILL be very difficult to defeat when playing it for the first time!) and after the credits roll, the trophy will unlock.
|Upload your recorded scores and clear times for all stages.||(1)|
You MUST upload all your scores from BOTH Score Attack and Time Attack modes. I recommend to ignore this trophy until you finish your first playthrough. Your first playthrough will be recorded under Score Attack so you don't need to focus on Score Attack again. On the Stage Select Screens, hit the button to switch to Time Attack. Now you must complete the game again using this mode. Be careful, if you die you'll have to retry the stage! Once done, go to the Leaderboards and register your scores in EACH act, boss and Special Stage.
|Collect all the Rings in 'Special Stage 1' and Clear the stage.|
This trophy was very annoying for me, but it is doable. You must collect every single ring in Special Stage 1 and clear it. If time runs out, the trophy will not unlock. If you are running out of time or see yourself getting towards the "!" block, quickly press Pause and hit Retry. There are 2 ways to get this trophy:
|Build up 99 or more extra lives.|
You must be thinking this is a long grind. But it's not. It's SO easy to get to 99 lives compared to the Sonic Genesis games. There are many ways to get a 1 UP:
|Super Sonic Genesis|
|Acquire all seven Chaos Emeralds.|
Clear all 7 Special Stages. Collect and hold the 50 rings until you finish the stage, you'll see a massive gold ring near the clear stage billboard and you MUST jump towards it. You then must complete the stage without getting booted off. You can get booted off if you hit a "!" block or you run out of time. If you are running out of time or see yourself getting towards the "!" block, quickly press Pause and hit Retry.
|Speed's My Game|
|Clear SPLASH HILL ZONE ACT 1 in less than a minute.||(1)|
THIS is doable with the normal Sonic the Hedgehog if you take the right route. But I ignored this trophy until I used Super Sonic. Using Super Sonic to complete the stage will make things much MUCH easier. There is a video below on how to clear the stage in under a minute if you want to use Sonic. =P
|Clear the E.G.G. STATION ZONE without taking any damage.||(1)|
The hardest trophy in the list. It took me 5 hours but I did it. The key to completing this is time and patience. You cannot transform to Super Sonic here as there are not enough rings. If you got a platinum in Sonic Unleashed, then you shouldn't have no problem getting this trophy right?
You have to complete the whole E.G.G Station Zone without getting hit. If Sonic even ONCE lose his rings, game over - you will not get the trophy and you'll have to restart the whole stage. Restarting from a checkpoint doesn't count by the way. You HAVE to defeat Eggman without getting hit from start to finish. Here is what I did:
Splash Hill Zone Creation:
Useful Tips by King_Ubu (Thanks!):
2nd boss: The boss will not do anything until you touch the floor. When the fight starts, try to spin attack up the left wall, with any luck the boss will come to this area and just hover, you'll continue to bounce off him and the spring above. Getting 3 hits in before he changes location.
