Snake Boat: Otterrific Arcade Trophy Guide and Road Map

Snake Boat is a very easy game to platinum, but by following the instructions in the guide below, it can be made a lot easier for yourself by setting low scores to beat…

Phase One – Normal Mode as Petra

For your first stab at the game, you want to play in Normal Mode to unlock Hard Mode and set a really low score which will be easy to beat later for the next phase.

After a few seconds, pause the game with and select “End Game” to register a score.

By selecting to play as Petra, you’ll also unlock the free DLC trophy.

Free DLC Trophy

Trophy Image
New Snake Who Dis?

Finish a game on any difficulty as Petra the Snake. (She’s the red one. Pete’s the green one. The two don’t have any other visual defining characteristics because when was the last time you were able to tell apart a male snake from a female snake?) (If you’re a herpetologist, scalie or in-general snake enthusiast, don’t answer that.)

As the trophy description makes painfully obvious, you unlock this trophy by selecting to play as Petra, the red snake. Do so by selecting “Play As Petra” in the main menu.

Phase Two – Normal Mode again and Hard Mode

Now you just want to beat your previous score of 2 seconds (or whatever you eventually ended up with) in order to unlock a trophy for beating your own high score.

Again, just press and select “End Game” when you have survived longer than your previous time.

You’ll then want to play Hard Mode for a few seconds to unlock Blind Mango mode. There are no trophies involved.

High Score Trophy

Recursive Snake

Beat your own personal high score in any mode. (It’s a snake-eat-snake world… Wait, wrong game?)

Just beat your own score for this trophy. By setting a really low score in your first playthrough, you can make this trophy insanely easy.

blank

If by some bizarre turn of events, you manage to set a score in your first playthrough that you think you’ll never be able to beat, then you can delete all save data for Snake Boat and start fresh.

Unlock Blind as a Mango Mode

As stated, just play Hard mode for a few seconds to unlock Blind as a Mango Mode. This is the final mode we will need to unlock all the other trophies, but you won’t earn any more trophies in this phase for playing Hard Mode. Don’t feel the need to stick around.

Phase Three – Blind as a Mango Mode

Blind as a Mango Mode for Five Minutes

All that’s left is to play Blind as a Mango mode for 5 whole minutes. Not 5 consecutive minutes; 5 cumulative minutes.

In other words, you don’t need to stay alive for 5 whole minutes, you just need to keep replaying this mode until you’ve spent a total of 5 minutes playing it.

For this phase you can literally just put the controller down. You should survive about 2 minutes on average without doing anything, all you need to do is press “Restart” when you eventually die and then leave the controller again.

That will unlock the following trophy:

Trophy Image

Trophy Image
Beginner Snake Boat Score

Finish a game on any difficulty with a score of at least 30. (That’s a good score for your presumably first attempt!)

Score of at least 60 as Petra

If you keep playing as Petra during this phase, and you should naturally unlock the other DLC trophy too. Otherwise, you can just load up a game as petra on easy and survive for a minute. Which is as simple as not moving at all.

Trophy Image
Bump to the Top

Finish a game on any difficulty as Petra the Snake with a score of at least 60. (It’s nice to be at the top of the home page err I mean scoreboard. Even if it’s only for a second. I would like to thank the academy… To a certain gamer dragon: no you’re famous! And to a certain great dude: how crispy do you like your snakes?)

Otterrific High Score

There’s a slight chance you won’t get this trophy naturally and may have to physically play the game.

Trophy Image
Otterrific High Score

Finish a game on any difficulty with a score of at least 180. (You got the top score on the local score board! Congratulations! Share this accomplishment with your friends! Challenge them to beat your score!)

You’ll need to achieve a score of 180 in a single sitting on any game mode, thus taking the top spot on the scoreboard.

blank

One point is equal to one second, so you will need to survive for 180 seconds, or 3 minutes.

If you’re not earning this naturally in this phase, just load the game on Easy Difficulty and play until the timer reaches 3:00. At that point, simply press and select “End Game” to submit your score and unlock the trophy.

I found that I could move the boat up into the top left corner and sit there for almost 5 minutes untouched.

Plat Get!

Trophy Image
Platinum Snake Boat

Achieve all other trophies! You’re a master at rowing a boat for five minutes at a time! (I better see this trophy up on your shelf or cabinet.)

Having played Blind as a Mango Mode for a cumulative 5 minutes, thus unlocking every other trophy, you’ll have this Platinum trophy in your collection.

If not, check to see if Otterrific High Score unlocked.
