Squareboy vs Bullies Trophy Guide

- Advertisement -

Squareboy Vs Bullies is an 8-bit beat em up. It is probably highly insulting to the franchise, but the game plays a bit like Streets of Rage, except this game sucks. If you are playing this game for anything other than the trophies, turn away, it's a mistake! Dont dead open inside!

Trophy Guide & Road Map [toggle]

This game sucks and the combat is a joke. Moves can't be cancelled and you do not gain any invincibility when attacked which usually results in you getting gangbanged. This was definitely one of the least enjoyable games I have played for a platinum. Anyway, it's a super easy platinum. The hard part is putting up with the game itself.

There is only one trophy that can be missed, but there is a chapter select so it's not that bad. Once you get to the Ninja boss fight, throw the crate at him. Once you get that trophy, the rest is a breeze.

All of the combat trophies require you to hit an enemy with them. The moves are all easy to perform, so you should have no issues with any of these. Once you lookup the move list and know them all, you will end up getting them without even knowing what moves are needed for the trophies.

Killing 300 bullies will come naturally and the boss fights will of course come naturally. Keep an eye out for weapons and make sure to hit an enemy with each weapon to get the related trophy.

DEFEAT ALL THE BULLIES
Platinums++;
OPEN THE MOVES LIST IN THE PAUSED MENU
Pause the game and go to the move list at any point to get the trophy. It is worth remembering this as you will need to make use of some of the more advanced moves later on in the game if you want to stop yourself getting angry at this garbage game.
HIT AN ENEMY WITH A STRIKE COMBO
Perform a strike combo by pressing Square 4 times in a row.
HIT AN ENEMY WITH A JUMP PUNCH
Press Up on the d-pad and press Square to perform a jump punch.
HIT AN ENEMY WITH A JUMP KICK
Similar to the jump punch except down on the d-pad. Press down and square to perform a jump kick.
HIT AN ENEMY WITH A BACK PUNCH
Sounds kind of complicated but you will get it without trying. When your back is turned to an enemy, use left or right to turn in their direction while pressing square to perform a back punch.
HIT AN ENEMY WITH A DASH ATTACK
As dash attack is the holy grail of this game. It will get you out of most tough situations and more often than not, will knock an enemy to the ground as you dash past them. To dash, double tap left or right and press square.
HIT AN ENEMY WITH A SPIN PUNCH
Double tap up and square to perform a spin punch.
HIT AN ENEMY WITH A SPIN KICK
Double tap down and square to perform a spin kick.
GRAB AN ENEMY
This can also be quite useful, but NEVER do this when surrounded. When you grab an enemy, all other moves are locked out. This means you must complete an exit move before being able to deal with other enemies. Grabbing will actually make you very vulnerable.

To grab an enemy press Square once when you are very close to an enemy.
THROW AN ENEMY
Grab an enemy using Square. Once you are holding the enemy, press Up + Square to throw them.
HIT AN ENEMY WITH A BASEBALL BAT
When an enemy drops a bat, pick it up using Circle and use it to hit an enemy.
HIT AN ENEMY WITH A CHAIN
When an enemy drops a chain, pick it up using Circle and use it to hit an enemy.
HIT AN ENEMY WITH A TIRE
When you find a tire in the environment, pick it up using Circle and throw it at an enemy.
HIT AN ENEMY WITH A BOX
When you find a cardboard box in the environment, pick it up using Circle and throw it at an enemy.
HIT AN ENEMY WITH A TRASH CAN
When you find a trash can in the environment, pick it up using Circle and throw it at an enemy.
HIT AN ENEMY WITH A CRATE
When you find a crate in the environment, pick it up using Circle and throw it at an enemy.
HIT ENEMIES BEHIND AND IN FRONT OF YOU WITH A SINGLE SWING OF A WEAPON
You can get this using a baseball bat since it has a full 360 swing area. Let enemies surround you and swing the bat to hit the enemies in front and behind you. You shouldn’t need to try to get this, you will more than likely get it without trying.
THROW A CRATE ON THE NINJA BULLY ON THE SHIP DECK
Missable!
Once you get to the Ninja boss at the end of the ship level, you will see a crate at the top of the area. Pick this up and throw it at him. You must throw it at this boss. Throwing ia crate at any other Ninjas throughout the game will not count.
DESTROY ALL THE DUMMIES IN THE DOJO
Story
You will get this at the start of the game during the tutorial.
DEFEAT BANDANA BULLY ON THE HIDEOUT ROOFTOP
Story
Boss
This is the first boss of the game and fairly easy to beat.
DEFEAT NINJA BULLY ON THE SHIP DECK
Story
Boss
This is the second boss found at the end of the ship level. This boss battle is also quite easy.
DEFEAT BIG BOSS BULLY
Story
Boss
This boss is a lot harder than any of the others. The main difficulty is that he spawns with Ninjas. The best strategy here is to clear off the Ninjas first. The dash attack won’t work and if you hit off the boss with a dash, it will sort of stun you and usually results in the Ninjas getting in some shots. Use jump punches and kicks a lot to knock back the boss and ninjas and work to kill them off as quick as possible. You might do some damage to the boss in the progress which will help.
FINISH THE GAME
Story
Unlocks once you defeat the big boss bully at the end.
