Astro’s Playroom Collectables Guide
Welcome to the Astro’s Playroom Collectable Guide!
Here, you’ll find a step-by-step walkthrough for every collectable in every stage. I’ve put this together in chronological order, so you can just jump in for the very first time you’re playing the game, and follow along as you go – or, better yet, play the game for yourself first and then use this walkthrough to find any you may have missed while using the map to very quickly hop between stages!
Astro’s Playroom Collectable Walkthrough
There are 4 Puzzle Pieces in CPU Plaza, the main hub of the game from where you’ll access the other 5 levels.
First, go left past the entrance to Memory Meadow and you’ll see a ramp against the wall. Walk up it and pull the cables which are exposed, this will cause some platforms to emerge from the wall.
Begin climbing up them until you reach another set of cables, pull them to reveal more platforms. Take the left route from the dark grey tilting platform, where you’ll find your first Puzzle Piece.
Continue climbing up the platforms until you reach some cables on a long platform jutting out of the wall. This will cause a PS1 controller adapter to fire from the platform you’re on, across the room. Tightrope-walk across this and pull another cable for more platforms.
Follow the platforms up and to the left to find your Second Puzzle Piece.
Then, continue climbing up this wall, pulling another set of cables as you go. At the top, you’ll find a dark grey metal beam, at the end of which you’ll find the third Puzzle Piece.
Now, sticking to the side of the room you’re on, head back down to the ground and against this wall you’ll see another ramp which instead heads downstairs.
Down here, in the corner you’ll find three cables on the floor of a platform where three robots are hanging out. Pull all three cables and the final Puzzle Piece will appear.
From the start of the level, look up and to the right and you’ll see the first Puzzle Piece on a cylindrical platform. Use the platforms in the immediate area to reach and collect it!
Cross the tightrope to the next large grassy platform, and you’ll see a cloud blowing at you and a Puzzle Piece in clear view, walk over and grab it.
A little while later on, you’ll come across a grey mud pit. On a nearby circular platform, you’ll see a flower. Spin-attack the flower by holding to spawn a bridge. The cloud in the corner will blow on this bridge causing it to rotate.
Ride the bridge to reach a platform behind the cloud and follow this ledge round to some cables in the ground. Pull on them to get an Artefact; The PlayStation Controller.
Continue through the stage until you find another grey mud pit, where you’ll see a bot trying to carry too many boxes, Death Stranding style. In the corner of this area, on the wall, you’ll find a Puzzle Piece.
Shortly after that, you’ll need to ride a cloud to reach the next area. Instead of jumping off and making progress, ride it all the way to the wall on the other side and jump on the platforms in the wall.
Climb up the wall to the grassy area on top and then onto the highest point in this area where you’ll see some cables you can pull from the ground. Do so and you’ll get the next Artefact; The PlayStation Mouse.
