Rogue Legacy is a small indie masterpiece from Cellar Door Games. The game is not for the faint of heart: it is a roguelike, as the title suggests, that is, that frustrating and rewarding game category in which the difficulty is set upwards, death is permanent and the levels of play they are random. Your task is to explore the four game worlds by facing the various bosses in view of the final challenge, all while playing a brave knight. The title is completely in English, but on-screen dialogue is rare if not non-existent; the completion time depends a lot on the luck in the generation of the dungeons but above all on your personal skill. We are still about fifty hours, since it is necessary to perform three runs to get all the trophies (even two if you want, making Thanatospobhia coincide with the first run, but it is highly not recommended). The total trophies are 30, Of which 11 hidden, 9 bronzes, 5 silvers, 4 times it's a Platinum. And taking it will not be a walk in the park.

Where do I start?
Our general advice for approaching the title is to proceed with calm. Rogue Legacy is not a game with a particularly deep story: with each new game the various dungeons are generated randomly, you have to enter, destroy as many monsters as possible, collect useful items and defeat the bosses. Each time you die everything you have collected moves on to the next character, and it starts all over again. There are no missable trophies and each match can last anywhere from a few minutes to half an hour, depending on how good you are. To reach platinum you need patience, skill and strategy: you have to learn how enemies move, their attacks that for good or bad are always the same type, and however lethal in the long run just as predictable. Also try to choose your style of play carefully: i upgrades (unlockable with the gold accumulated with each new game) and the rune, which give you special skills. We'll also highlight interesting glitches that can help you get the better of some particularly strong monsters. However with practice any enemy can be knocked out, even if at first some may seem invincible to you.
- Complete the game for the first time, enjoying it. In this bike you will already earn several trophies and unlock the next difficulty. During this run, collect as many upgrades and runes as possible, face as many minibosses as possible and level up until you can beat the final boss. If you are in difficulty, with the accumulated gold, buy the upgrades at the castle: the attack one is very useful (strict, sword icon: with each point you will gain 2 str), health (healt, heart icon, +10 health per point) and defense (armor, shield icon, +2 def for each point)
- Complete the game again on maximum difficulty but before to beat the final boss face the 4 secret bosses. To do this you will need to obtain the oboli. The latter are located near the statues present in some rooms marked with a red question mark (the special rooms). Occasionally interacting with the statue will result in an offering, which bears the name and figure of the corresponding boss. When you die, give it to Charon before re-entering the castle: now if you return to the boss in question, he will have become Remixed (secret bosses) and you can face it again. They are much more powerful than before.
- At this point you should have learned the game mechanics very well and be ready for the last obstacle: the trophy Thanatophobia. Create a new save slot, start the game over, and finish it by dying less than 15 times and without using may the architect to block the castle structure. Abuse the cloud save and reload the game if you die.

Choose a hero with no traits.
Each time you are defeated, you must choose an heir for your player. Each heir has specific characteristics that may or may not be beneficial to the game. This trophy will be unlocked when you choose a character with no particular trait. It will come by itself throughout the game.
Open your very first gold chest.
You have to open your first gold chest. They are obtained by defeating minibosses in certain rooms marked with a question mark, or by winning the clown game that you will occasionally find in the castle.
Use the special class at least once.
The special class is the Dragon class. To get it you will have to buy it in the skill tree, or the initial castle that is presented to you at each new game, where you can choose how to spend the accumulated gold. The upgrade is called "Bestiality" and is on the top of the castle (you can't see it at a glance, so go there manually with the selection keys). To get this skill you will have to buy, below: Smithy, Health Up, Paladin, Equip Up, Enchantress, Archmage, Miner, Assassin, Potion Up, Spellthief, Spellsword, Invul Time Up and finally Beastiality. Now when you start a new game, a Dragon hero may be available - select him and you will unlock the trophy.
Read the last journal entry.
You will need to read the last chapter of the book. You will find it before facing the final boss, it is not mixable. You can also get it by reading all the individual chapters that you will find from time to time in the rooms marked with the question mark, but it will take longer.
Die 20 times or more.
You have to die at least 20 times (cumulative with more characters). It is not a missable trophy. If you die less than twenty times you are simply too good for this game.
Have one rune equipped in every item slot.
You will need to equip one rune for each inventory slot. Runes grant special abilities and are found in fairy baskets scattered around the game world. To win one you will have to face a small variable challenge: reach the basket without taking damage, eliminate all enemies, do not jump and others. There are five inventory slots: helmet, armor, shoulder straps, boots, and cloak. You will be able to equip the runes obtained by the Enchantress: you can find it before entering the castle after having unlocked it with the initial skill tree. Remember that each rune costs a certain amount of gold, and the following ones have a slightly increasing price.
Have one piece of equipment in every item slot.
You will need to complete your equipment: helmet, armature, shoulder straps, boots and cloak. You will be able to purchase them from the dealer once you have unlocked it from the skill tree. Blueprints are required. Similar to runes, they occasionally regenerate almost as often, and you can find them in the game's basic chests, even in normal rooms, or as a reward for beating a miniboss.
Reach level 50 or higher.
To level up it is necessary to purchase skills and upgrades in the starting castle, using the accumulated gold. Level 50 will be reached easily even during the first run.
Earn your very first Enchantress rune.
You will need to earn your first skill rune. They are the ones found in the fairy baskets, and they require you to overcome a small challenge to be obtained. You will unlock the trophy as soon as you get it, without having to buy it from the Enchantress.
Defeat the boss in Castle Hamson.
Castle Hamson is the first part of the castle: a real brick manor and rooms with wooden objects. To face the boss you will have to find his portal bordered by two statues and two chests on the bottom. The first boss of the game is this, and his name is Khidr: he is a giant eye that will always remain stationary in the center of the arena launching his attacks. The arena consists of the floor (where you will initially find yourself) and four raised platforms (which I advise against using unless in serious danger or imminent damage). Finally, on the left and right sides are the thorns, which you must keep away from. Khidr attacks in three different ways, alternating them randomly: he can use four spirals of blows, to avoid which you will have to insert yourself between two spirals and accompany them as they run out; it can fire shots simultaneously in four different directions: move me as little as possible, just enough to avoid them; finally it can fire shots in all directions, also here move me slowly but precisely to avoid them. The strategy to beat him is not to move and hit as much as possible, but to stay almost always in the same place, paying particular attention to avoiding his blows. Therefore precision is needed. Between Khidr's attacks you can attack him by giving him as many hits as you can. The recommended class to defeat him is the Hokage: he has very high damage, and can eliminate him with fewer hits. And if you have a character with the "gigantism" trait you will not even have to jump to hit him, you will succeed by staying on the ground.
Defeat the boss in the Forest Abkhazia.
The forest of Abkhazia is the second part of the castle - the grassy area of the game world. It is always on the right of the main map. To face the boss you will have to find his portal bordered by two statues and two chests on the bottom. The second boss of the game is this, and his name is Alexander: a giant skull that will circle around the arena trying to hurt you. Alexander hits in two ways: by simply selling on you, or by launching an attack that simultaneously acts in four directions: up, down, right and left, and is long range, so avoid it absolutely. It also very often generates smaller allies, called Fury: they are skulls that behave like him, throw themselves at it or launch reduced but equally dangerous attacks at long range. The arena features many platforms that you can use to get away from enemies. The strategy is to stay as far away from Alexander as possible as he moves, and hit him as soon as possible, but watch out for his attack and get away in time. Do not ignore the monsters it generates, or there will be too many on the screen: it is instead useful to kill them, especially if you are equipped with the "vampirism" rune that will give you 4 life points for each enemy eliminated. A great character to deal with is the barbarian, who has a lot of life points and lasts longer. Magic can also be used to your advantage - the boomerang blade is ideal. In this battle it is very important to keep moving: if you stay still you will die in a short time because all the enemies will pounce on you.
Kill a chicken.
Sometimes you might have a character with the "alektorophobia" trait that reads: "chickens scare you". With this character occasionally in the castle, breaking objects or defeating enemies, you will find chickens instead of the classic health-restoring food. Eliminate one to unlock the trophy. And if you have a low health level be careful, the chicken hurts you even if slightly, and you don't want to be killed by a chicken do you?
Beat one of the clown's games at least once.
You must win the clown game at least once. You find it occasionally for the
castle, in the rooms marked with a question mark. He will propose one of the following two challenges: throw giant axes to hit at least 90 of 100 targets, throw 12 bullets to hit 8 moving targets in succession. They are quite difficult, we leave you the video that illustrates how to 100% beat the first type of challenge. For the second you need reflexes and precision.
Put at least one point in every skill in the manor.
You must award a point for each castle upgrade (appears on the home screen after choosing the heir). There are 32 boxes, the last one is on the top of the castle, half hidden. Collect a lot of gold to unlock everything.
Find all the runes (purchase not necessary).
You will need to get all the runes in the game. They are hidden in fairy chests which require a little challenge before obtaining. In two runs you should be able to get them all without problems. The trophy will be unlocked when you talk to the sorceress after obtaining the last rune. You don't need to buy them.
Play the game for at least 20 hours.
You have to play for at least 20 hours. You will easily unlock it during the second run. You can also leave the console on on the title screen, but you shouldn't need it. Game times cannot be combined on multiple rows: if you play a game for 15 hours and a second game on a second file for another 5 hours, you will not unlock the trophy. You will need to accumulate them on the same save file.
Defeat all the minibosses.
You will have to defeat the miniboss scattered around the castle. If you power up properly it shouldn't be a problem. Some have encountered problems with this trophy; we don't, but if it doesn't unlock once you've defeated the last one, keep facing the miniboss one at a time. You will strengthen yourself, and it doesn't hurt, and the trophy will almost certainly come on its own. There are 5 minibosses in all:
- 2 giant skeletons throwing bones (Berth and Halphas)
- 2 very fast spore shooting plants (Stolas and Focalor)
- A giant painting (Sallos). It camouflages itself like a normal painting, be careful and hit it to make it manifest.
- A giant knight (Botis). His attacks are predictable, avoid them by jumping.
- Two giant wizards (Amon and Barbatos). They are very slow, avoid their attacks and defeat them one at a time to make your task easier
Defeat the boss in the Maya.
The Maya is the third area of the castle, also located north of the map (you have to climb). Here you will find the third boss of the game, with its portal to access it. This is Ponce de Leon, a fairly large fireball. The arena consists of 5 platforms: you will not find secondary enemies inside but four sharp spheres that will move around the area all the time, and must therefore be avoided. Ponce will attack you in two ways: he will move slowly to come upon you, and in doing so he will leave behind him some fiery spheres that will slowly disappear, or he will directly charge you with a click (a moment before it will light up, so it is easily predictable). Against this boss it is essential to always move, carefully avoiding both the monster and the sharp orbs that the fire orbs. A moment's help comes from the barbarian in the King / Queen version, who can use the scream by pressing the triangle button, and make all the fireballs disappear from the screen. In case of difficulty it is very useful.
Defeat the boss in the Land of Darkness.
Land of Darkness is the fourth and final part of the game world, and is located south of the castle, at the bottom of the screen (you have to go down). Once you find the fourth portal you can face the boss of the area, Herodotus. Herodotus is a giant slime, a kind of sticky smashed ball whose only attack is jumping. But don't think this is a simple thing: every time you eliminate Herodotus, he will split into two smaller forms, which in turn will attack you. Each lower shape can jump higher than the previous one. In all, you will have to defeat Herodotus 63 times, and that's not all: there are two elements that make the matter even more complicated (but not insurmountable). The first is that the area has numerous platforms, but the lower one is littered with pop-up thorns that will come out to hurt you as soon as you walk on it. The second: every time you kill a form of Herodotus, a Gravisor appears, the green wizards who
attack by generating a mountain that rises from the ground. We advise you to use a character that has the PAD character, so as not to be injured by the thorns of the lower platform, which will not come out. Another strategy is to eliminate each Gravisor as soon as it is generated to then focus on the slimes. If you eliminate too many Herodotus forms by ignoring the Gravisors, you will literally be invaded and avoiding their attacks will be impossible.
Defeat the trademarked chemical.
The trademarked chemical is the remixed version of Ponce de Leon, the third boss of the game, located north of the map (The Maya). To face it you will first have to have defeated Ponce de Freon, then you will have to find Ponce de Leon's obolus in one of the secret rooms with the statue of Charon (the altars). It is released randomly, as with all items that can be obtained from the statue. You will then have to die, give the offering to Charon (the real one at the entrance) before re-entering the castle and then head to the corresponding boss room. You will find it open again, and inside it will be Ponce de Freon. The secret boss battles are a little different than the ones you've already faced: if you die, you'll find yourself out there with all your items, it won't be a standard death with the heir to choose. In the battle also you will not impersonate your character, but you will be assigned a default one with certain characteristics. And it will be important to know how to exploit those characteristics if you do not want the battle to end in a massacre (ergo, upgrades, upgrades and the like are not valid). The battle with Ponce de Freon will be similar to the original, with some differences: there will be no sharp orbs, the life of the boss will be incredibly higher, the fire orbs he will leave behind will last much longer. You will play as a barbarian king: use his scream to make all the fireballs disappear if you are cornered. This is again a battle of movement: you will always have to move. Furthermore, you will be equipped with 6 jump runes and the side sprint: using them wisely you can avoid Ponce's attacks even at the last second, injuring him when he happens to be in range. The strategy to keep him from filling the whole arena with fireballs is as follows: try to spin him twice on the left side of the screen, bring him to the right, spin him twice on the right side of the screen, at this point jump on the platform above, always above and stall here as much as you can. At this point, returning to the left side of the screen, the initial spheres should have disappeared. Always keep the same way and in the long run you will defeat him. Get hit as little as possible: with four hits you are knocked out.
Defeat the son.
The "son" is Alexander the IV, a remixed version of Alexander, the third boss of the game, located to the east of the map (Forest of Abkhazia). To face it you will first have to have defeated Alexander, then you will have to find Alexander's offering in one of the secret rooms with the statue of Charon (the altars). It is released randomly, as with all items that can be obtained from the statue. You will then have to die, give the offering to Charon (the real one at the entrance) before re-entering the castle and then head to the corresponding boss room. You will find it open again, and inside will be Alexander the IV. The secret boss battles are a little different than the ones you've already faced: if you die, you'll find yourself out there with all your items, it won't be a standard death with the heir to choose. Furthermore, in the battle you will not impersonate your character, but you will be assigned a default one with certain characteristics. And it will be important to know how to exploit those characteristics if you do not want the battle to end in a massacre (ergo, upgrades, upgrades and the like are not valid). Alenxader IV maintains the same attacks as the first time: he throws long-range orbs in all four directions, comes at you, and summons the skulls that behave the way he does. What changes is his aggression and his vital energy, significantly increased. The arena in which you will move will also be as dangerous as your enemy: it is literally surrounded by sharp thorns and divided into two mirror zones, one on the right and one on the left, divided in turn by thorns. Not all evil comes to harm anyway: if Alexander IV comes upon you, get hurt by the thorns, because they do less damage! As a character you will be forced to use a hokage with jumping and vampirism runes: for each eliminated enemy you will get some energy. You will have to use the teleporter to move from one area of the arena to another, paying attention to the central separator. The luck is that Alexander IV could run into an interesting glitch useful to take him out. Do this: As soon as the fight begins, jump to the upper platform. Now wait for Alexander. When he gets close to the left edge, make him go against the wall of thorns as much as possible, then escape to the other side of the arena, to the other platforms and keep to the left. Wait for Alexander IV again and repeat the process, this time making him as close to the right as possible. Now the glitch could be activated. Staying on the left where you just escaped, you will notice that no enemy attacks you, neither skulls nor Alexander. If this happens, the glitch has been successful for the time being. Wait a few seconds before proceeding to the next step. Now move very slowly to the right, moving towards the center of the arena. Some skulls might attack you: stay where you are and take them out. As you keep moving to the right (you can jump if you want, but you definitely don't have to go to the other side of the arena where you framed Alexander) sooner or later the boss will launch his multidirectional attack. Avoid it by always staying where you are.
masti blocked on the other side of the arena. Now you have to get busy: use the two platforms available to eliminate the boss, hit him only when it is not risky to try. Under no circumstances go to the part of the arena where you glitched it before it returned to you.
Defeat the doppelgänger.
The doppelgänger is Neo Khidr, remixed version of Khidr, the first boss of the game, located in the first part of the map. To face it you will first have to have defeated Khidr, then you will have to find Khidr's offering in one of the secret rooms with the statue of Charon (the altars). It is released randomly, as with all items that can be obtained from the statue. You will then have to die, give the offering to Charon (the real one at the entrance) before re-entering the castle and then head to the corresponding boss room. You will find it open again, and inside it will be its remixed version. The secret boss battles are a little different than the ones you've already faced: if you die, you'll find yourself out there with all your items, it won't be a standard death with the heir to choose. Furthermore, in the battle you will not impersonate your character, but you will be assigned a default one with certain characteristics. And it will be important to know how to exploit those characteristics if you do not want the battle to end in a massacre (ergo, upgrades, upgrades and the like are not valid). Neo Khidr will behave like his old version, but his attacks will be much faster and more aggressive. The skill lies in knowing how to avoid his shots (which will alternate between spirals, targeted shots and contemporary shots). You will play the spellsword, a sort of wizard-master: every time you hit him you will gain mana and recharge your magic bar. This is very important, because while avoiding the blows you must every time you can generate the giant sword against Khidr, which will provide to wound him for a certain amount of time (triangle button). You will be equipped with the jump and dodge runes, essential to avoid the spiral attack. With a little practice you will already throw out Neo Khidr too, hold on.
Defeat the asteroids.
The asteroids are Astrodotus and Herodotus, remixed version of the fourth boss of the game, located in the southern area of the map (Land of Darkness). To face it you will first have to have defeated Herodotus, then you will have to find the offering of Herodotus in one of the secret rooms with the statue of Charon (the altars). It is released randomly, as with all items that can be obtained from the statue. You will then have to die, give the offering to Charon (the real one at the entrance) before re-entering the castle and then head to the corresponding boss room. You will find it open again, and inside it will be its remixed version. The secret boss battles are a little different than the ones you've already faced: if you die, you'll find yourself out there with all your items, it won't be a standard death with the heir to choose. Furthermore, in the battle you will not impersonate your character, but you will be assigned a default one with certain characteristics. And it will be important to know how to exploit those characteristics if you do not want the battle to end in a massacre (ergo, upgrades, upgrades and the like are not valid). This battle is very special: it is fought in the air. Your character will be of dragon class and you can therefore fly constantly (also because there are no platforms). You will have the two aforementioned enemies on the screen, and the mechanism is the same as Herodotus: the more you hit them, the more they become small and multiply. The battle is not particularly difficult, especially when compared to the others with the remixed bosses: weight the shots, avoid the various slimes, and above all eliminate one enemy at a time. For example, if you want to take out Astrodotus altogether, then ignore Herodotus to the end. Hitting them both together will have too many enemies on screen and avoiding them will become impossible.
Find all blueprints (purchase not necessary).
Blueprints are equipment for your character, which once found can be purchased from the market before entering the castle. It is not necessary to buy them for the purpose of the trophy, only to find them. You can get them randomly from the real chests scattered throughout the game, especially in the gold ones that are released from the miniboss once defeated, but also from the silver-studded chests and, more rarely and usually only at the beginning of the game, in the common chests . In all you will have to find 71 blueprints, the first 4 you have already starting a new game. The logic is that the likelihood of finding them increases with the more difficult areas of the game (Lando of Darkness and The Maya). To find them all, you will need to start a new game +, because some cannot be obtained at the normal level. The rarest of all are difficult to find even in the new game +: even if they are few, we recommend starting a new game ++, as the probability of finding them even in the most common areas increases exponentially, especially if you dedicate yourself to minibosses. . But for those who want to find them by force in the second game at level +, you will need the Calypso's Compass, a sort of compass that randomly releases the statue of Charon (the one found in the special rooms, the same one that releases the oboles for the bosses remixed). She will take you to a new rare item. We recommend finding a large number of blueprints in the first game, then almost all the others in the game +, finally starting a game ++ only for the few remaining
Beat the game… twice.
You will have to complete the game a second time. It does not mean that you will have to take a new file and play again, but that you will have to complete a new game + on the same file where you just completed the game for the first time. Enemies will be stronger, environments will have more traps. Equipped properly you shouldn't have any problems: at the limit use the Grace Runes, which reduce the level of the enemies (unfortunately, however, they also reduce the rewards). Once you have completed a new game + as well, a ++ game (even more difficult) will automatically start, so make sure you have done everything you had to do before facing the last boss again.
Mock the traitor
This trophy is simpler than you think. To unlock it, you must first defeat all 5 remixed versions of the bosses in the game (see the Syngenesophobia, Chemophobia, Ostiophobia, Scotomaphobia and Astrophobia trophies if you need help). Once you have beaten everyone, you will unlock the "traitor" class. Using this new character (which will be randomly generated as a possibility between your heirs) go to challenge the final boss of the game, the standard one that is located behind the golden door. Now you don't even need to beat him - the trophy will unlock as soon as the battle begins.
WITHOUT using the Architect, complete the game dying 15 times or less.
This trophy is a tough one, probably one that might make you want to give it all up. But you won't, because it's doable after all, even if you're not very skilled at the game. You must complete the game (create a new save file from scratch, you have six slots) dying less than 15 times and you must NEVER use the architect to block the castle structure. For those who want to face it before having beaten the remixed bosses (not recommended), you will need to use a trick that can alleviate the fatigue a little. For those who want to face it after the remixed bosses, by now they will be so good that maybe with a little bit of trying they won't even need the trick I mentioned. In addition to personal skill, here it is important to accumulate as much gold as possible in each game, so as to upgrade the minimum necessary to beat all five bosses of the game. Be calm, take it one room at a time, and if you see that the path you are taking is too dangerous, then change your way: usually in this game there is always more than one way to get somewhere. Avoid all the risks you can, take as little damage as possible, do not insist on wanting to open that chest or to beat that challenge for that rune: you will unnecessarily put yourself in danger. The most useful upgrades to buy in the manor are obviously those of health, attack and defense. An excellent character to face the whole challenge is the barbarian, because he has a lot of life compared to the other characters, and allows you a higher number of errors. Abuse as if there was no cloud saving tomorrow: before facing a certain room or a boss, put the game on the cloud, and if you die download it again and try again. In this way death will not be counted, and calmly you will be able to do everything. A useful trick to simplify your life is to have a lot of gold: the more you have, the more upgrades you can buy. Here comes the beauty: the rooms with the red question mark (the special ones) have a peculiarity: the objects regenerate if you exit the game and re-enter. And items can generate food, mana, and coins when hit. This means that if a room has four objects, you can destroy them all, collect the one they released, close (triangle button, exit), re-enter, return to the room and repeat the operation over and over. If you are not in a hurry, in a single game by losing a few hours you can also accumulate 20.000 coins (and therefore many upgrades). Another trick is to find the clown with knives minigame: throw all the knives except the last one hitting as many targets as possible. Now go out and back. The coins obtained will be saved, but the minigame will be repeatable, in order to earn more coins. This process is even faster than the previous one. Once the four main bosses are defeated, the final one will be unlocked. To get there you will have to cross a fixed area full of destructible objects: this is the right opportunity for the “switch-off” trick, because at each spin you will also earn 200 coins in a short time.
Defeat the last boss.
You must defeat the last boss, which will be available after beating the other four in the various areas of the castle. Go through the golden door that is always found in the first room of the manor, cross the room, read the book on the table and enter. Johannes, your nemesis, will be waiting for you! Johannes has two forms: the first is the human one, in which he presents himself similar to you, as a knight. It is very fast, it throws knives, axes and fixed swords that do damage if you touch them: in short, the attacks that our characters have at their disposal. Hit him when possible, if you can lock him in a corner of the room (which has no further traps or nuisance). Once Johannes is defeated, his final form, The Fountain, will unlock. Once you understand its attacks, it turns out to be even easier to beat: it can throw at you numerous knives that start at short intervals of time (jump to avoid them, obviously without touching them), it can raise sharp rods on the ground that cover the whole area (the only way to avoid them and jump on the platforms that are activated if you hit and stay there for a few seconds), he can hit you directly with his
sword. Overall as a boss he is very slow, you can hit him 3-4 times in a row with the right timing. Once defeated you will unlock the trophy and complete the game. You can't go back at this point: a new game + will automatically unlock.
Defeat the brothers.
The brothers refer to the remixed version of the latest boss, Johannes. They are the Brohannes, or two identical copies of Johannes, who move like him, attack like him but have more energy than him. To face them you will have to have defeated all the other four remixed bosses and find the traitor obol from the statue of Charon in the special rooms marked with a question mark. Once delivered to Charon at the castle entrance, the secret room will unlock at any of the locations where you faced previous bosses (you don't have to take the golden door at the start of the level). Basically it's like facing two versions of the game's latest boss at the same time. You will be equipped with a character (the traitor) who has their own attacks, the most useful of which is that of multiple knives, with which you can hit and wound them together if they are on the same side of the screen, even from a long distance. The best strategy is to face them one at a time: in fact, if as soon as you start the battle you launch yourself against only one of the two, the other will not attack you, as long as you push the chosen enemy as close as possible against the edge of the room. Beating them one at a time is easier, but even together they are not a threat when you have practiced avoiding their blows (flying axes, knives, stationary swords).
Earn every other trophy.
You will unlock Platinum after conquering all the other trophies. Congratulations, you deserve it!
