Milo’s Quest Trophy Guide and Road Map
Milo’s Quest is a super charming little indie title brought to us by the folks who made Super Box Land Demake, which is why you’ll find similar kinds of puzzles in this top-down Zelda-like adventure game. The platinum trophy – much like Super Box Land’s – can be earned in less than an hour, and this Milo’s Quest Trophy Guide should help you to do that!
All you need to do is reach and defeat the game’s second boss, and the Platinum is practically yours!
Phase One – Defeat Super Pumpkin Bros on Easy
During this phase, you will need to start a new game on Easy Difficulty with “Adventure Only” mode active.
Thanks to Adventure Only mode, you won’t need to complete any of the game’s puzzles. Normally, your progress would be blocked by wooden gates and you’d need to solve a block-pushing puzzle to unlock the way forward, but in Adventure Only mode all of these gates are unlocked (except those which require keys or ask that you defeat enemies).
There is a trophy for completing your first puzzle though, so if you choose to play in Adventure Only mode you will need to do a tiny bit of cleanup in Phase Two, but it’s definitely worth it for the time you’ll save if that’s your goal!
There are also a few miscellaneous trophies in this phase which it is unlikely that you will miss, but I’ve provided instructions anyway. Just in case!
The following trophies are guaranteed if you just reach and defeat the second boss; the Super Pumpkin Bros.
Keys open doors
Get your first silver key.
Get your first bone.
Get the Gloves.
Get the Helmet.
Get the Binoculars.
I can see things
Get the Special Glasses.
He deserved it
Kill your first ghost.
Nothing can stop me
Defeat Big Marshmallow Boo
Three against one is not fair
Defeat Super Pumpkin Bros
The following trophies are very likely to unlock naturally, but this section here is to just highlight the things you might need to look out for – just in case!
I need to pass through
Kill 10 ghosts.
Killing ghosts count as murder?
Kill 20 ghosts.
You will need to kill 10, and then 20 ghosts in the pursuit of your Platinum if you want the two trophies above. Many areas will require you to kill all enemies in the vicinity to lower a purple gate allowing you to proceed through the game. This should be enough to ensure you get all 20, but just in case it isn’t, keep your nose out for ghosts you can kill using the headbutt ability.
Keys also open chests
Get your first golden key.
One thing to look out for in this phase is a gold key, it’s pretty much the only thing that I think you might be able to miss. Your first opportunity to get a gold key will come in the same area that you find your first Silver key, just make sure you explore the northern-most path and it will take you right up to it.
Get a heart extension.
After collecting your first Gold and Silver keys from the area mentioned above, head back to the West and go up to the silver gate in the north and press to unlock it with your key.
Now, pass through to the area past this gate and then go East into the next area, there you’ll find a heart pickup to collect. Picking it up will earn you this trophy.
There are actually plenty of opportunities to collect a heart leading up to the Pumpkin Bros fight but that’s the first and easiest to find.
I was getting tired
Get a Stamina extension.
Stamina extensions are found at what I assume are dog bowl icons?
They will give you one extra headbutt charge before needing to cooldown. The first one you can find is shortly after collecting the Football Helmet which unlocks the headbutt ability.
As soon as you collect the helmet, enter the area to the south, then go through to the area to the East. Here, you’ll now be able to use your new headbutt ability to kill the ghosts in the area, thus opening the purple gate to the north.
Behind said gate, you’ll find the stamina pickup, and this trophy with it.
Recover a heart
For this trophy, you’re going to need to take a little damage. You can do that by simply walking into a ghost.
Once your health has been reduced a little, walk through bushes and open chests. Where there once were bones, you should occasionally find food instead. Collect any food item to recover health and the first time you do that, you’ll get this trophy.
Phase Two – Complete a Puzzle
If, as recommended, you completed the first phase in Adventure-only mode, you won’t yet have completed any puzzles. Which is required for one trophy, which should be the only one you have left.
Milo is a smart boy
Solve your first puzzle.
If you’re playing the game as intended in Adventure + Puzzle mode, you should get this naturally because you won’t be able to progress without solving a few block-pushing puzzles.
For everyone else, you’ll need to return to the main menu and start a new game. I recommend staying on Easy Difficulty and then setting the game to “Puzzles Only” mode. It won’t make much difference though to be honest, as the first puzzle will happen very early in your playthrough.
Load up this new game and then progress until you complete your first puzzle, thus unlocking this trophy, and most likely the Platinum too!
Get all other trophies.
That’s one more Platinum Trophy in the bag!
Full Disclosure: You won’t find this platinum trophy on my PSN Profile, I used my alt account PlatGet_DblTap, so look there if you’re hoping to verify!
