Yay for persistance! =25/7/09= (Version 1.10) Forgot two controls in the newly-christened Controls sections, Strafe and Glide Drop. Also added the Things You May Not Have Noticed section. =27/10/09= (Version 1.15) Touched up the Things You May Not Have Noticed segment to say that Lawrence can be spotted up to six times (although I've only seen him twice). Also added Supercheats as a website allowed to host my guide, and adjusted the FAQs section. Finally changed the ASCII Art so that Clank's features are more easily distinguised. =28/10/09= (Version 1.20) Fixed a couple of mistakes I accidentally left in from when I thought you had to pay to skip time puzzles. Also added a new website to the "Allowed" list. ==Ratchet Demo== =30-31/7/2009= (Version 1.00) Typed up the entirety of the guide. Added a list of allowed sites from my previous guides so that they don't have to email me again, heheh. =31/7/09= (Version 2.00) Ratchet Demo Guide was rejected, they would have preferred one guide covering both demos, so that's what I did! Also changed the ASCII Art to reflect the change, the original idea was to have Clank for the Clank Guide and Ratchet for the Ratchet Guide. =1/11/09= (Version 2.10) Added the Caves section to the guide after a friend found out how to get into the caves. It's important to note that the caves cannot be completed because you don't get the Omnisoaker in the demo, and some Omnisoaker plants are missing. As a result the FAQs section was changed. ============== =Introduction= ============== Welcome to my sixth guide! This guide is dedicated to getting you though the Clank demo and the Ratchet demo, both available on PSN for free, as demos tend to be. This guide won't hold back on any spoilers, even the minor ones, so be warned. This first guide section covers the Clank demo, while the second one covers the Ratchet demo. The Clank guide will help you through the basics of things like the camera and movement, while the Ratchet guide will assume you played the Clank demo and know the basics of getting around. ============ =Legal Bits= ============ This guide is copyright to me, Tim van der Meij, known online as KBABZ or PeingDutchan (on GameFAQs). So far, the only site(s) allowed to host this guide is/are: = GameFAQs = Supercheats = MyPS3.com.au If you would like to host this guide, drop me an email at email@example.com and ask me. Almost all of the time I say yes, and probably won't mind if you just tell me "we're hosting your guide on our site" in advance of you putting it on. When you do put it on your site, you are allowed to take out the character width to make the guide go across the whole webpage. You can also put in images of the game in question at the appropriate areas (so no putting pics of the last level in a paragraph about the first). Any portion of this guide that is listed in the Contents, in full or in part, can be printed out for personal, non-profit use only, but if you would like to do so for a profitable reason (for instance, using a paragraph as part of an overall game guide), you may with my permission, and of course an appropriate mention of me as the author. Anything and anything else may not be printed out either for personal or profit use. If you would like to contact me about anything, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org ========== =Contents= ========== This is the list where you can quickly jump to where you wanna be or need help with in the guide. Each section in the game is given a code. Hit Ctrl+F to open a search box, copy the code in and hit Enter to jump to the next instance of the code. You may have to hit Enter more times if you're not at the contents. Any Gold Bolts that may be in the demo are, like in the ToD Guide, marked with a ### Border, for easy access. Constructo Mods are marked with a %%% border, while Zoni are marked with a @@@ border. ====================================================== Clank's Controls..................................#CCT Ratchet's Controls................................#RCT Gameplay Mechanics................................#GPM Clank Demo Guide..................................#CDG Ratchet Demo Guide................................#RDG Odin Caves.....................................#ODC Weapons, Gadgets and Items........................#WGI The Constructo Pistol..........................#TCP Frequently Asked Questions........................#FAQ Things You May Not Have Noticed...................#TYM Credits...........................................#CDT ========================= =Clank's Controls #CCT= ========================= Clank controls pretty similarly to how he did in many previous Ratchet & Clank games. For ease of use I'll introduce controls in the main guide as well, if you can't be bothered to read this bit. = Left Stick: Move around. Clank runs faster than he did in previous games making his traversal much easier. = Right Stick: Move Camera. The camera controls can be adjusted in the Options Menu. = X: Jump. Press X again to boost up a short distance in the air, extending your jump distance. You can do this up to three times. Unlike past R&C games, you do not need to hold X in the air after pressing it to glide. There's a light on top of Clank's head that indicates whether you can add another hop or not. Green means you can, Red means you can't. Trying to hop up in the air when the light is Red will give you a "nuh-uh" sort of sound. = Square: Punch. Not a very effective move as it grounds Clank somewhat. When you pick up a certain item in the demo, Square causes you to swing it around, even in mid-jump. = Circle: Does nothing. Like, I don't even know why I put this bit here. = Triange: Pull up Time Pad Quick Select. Unlike older games where you could bring up the Quick Select whenever, here you can only do so when on Time Pads, so you can interact with them. There are six commands you can do on a Time Pad: -Start Temporal Recording- This starts a Recording, while playing back any others you may have recorded prior. Hitting Triangle ends a Recording, and they always pause on the last place they were at (handy for recordings that need to stand on buttons and stay there the remainder of the time). -Delete- This erases the current recording on the pad you're standing on. -Bypass Puzzle-. This allows Clank to bypass a puzzle if you find it too tricky, but only if you've been on a particular puzzle for at least ten minutes. -Exit- This exits the Time Pad Quick Select, however the same effect can be achieved by selecting an inactive option. -Hint- This gives a HelpDesk Message that gives you a hint to help solve the puzzle you're in (whether you're stuck in it or not). -Delete All- This erases all Recordings on all pads in the current puzzle. = L1: Enter Over the Shoulder Mode. This is the Look Mode of R&CF, and is good for looking for nearby secrets and, as I love to do, admire the graphics. = L2: Strafe. Clank now has the ability to Strafe, which is great for making your way towards enemies while dodging their fire. = R1: Throw Time Bomb. Only available after you've picked up the special item, everything inside the resulting Time Sphere will slow down to a crawl, allowing you to traverse fast-moving objects or cripple powerful foes. = R2: Glide Drop. If you don't want to wait for Clank to glide down to a platform you're over, hit R2 to drop down, like Spyro did in his last two Psone titles. = Start: Pauses the game. Here you can access the Mission, Options and Main Menus. Accessing the latter will quit the current playthrough, meaning you'll have to start over. Options allow you to tweak the sound, brightness, on-screen alerts, Camera Speed and Invert the camera. = Select: Brings up the map. Shows icons for important objects like Meteor Pads. As you explore the area, the map will get detailed, however rusty orange-brown areas are unexplored areas of the current level. =========================== =Ratchet's Controls #CGP= =========================== Ratchet controls almost exactly like he did in Tools of Destruction, however there are a few changes. The most important one is the addition of a new camera mode, Classic, along with Default and Shooter (formerly known as Lock-Strafe). I will list the Default controls first, then go over Shooter and Classic and list the changes and differences they have over Default. = Left Stick: Move Ratchet/Manipulate Object. When firing a weapon, Ratchet will Strafe from side to side while facing in the direction the camera is pointing. When the Wrench's head is attacked to a blue Versa Bolt, the Left Stick manipulates the object. = Right Stick: Move Camera/Manipulate Object.. If Ratchet is firing and/or Strafing, this will alter the general direction of where he shoots. The pitch, as well as the direction, will determine the target of Ratchet's more precision- based weapons like the Constructo Pistol and The Negotiator, however Ratchet will aim automatically to the target with a white reticule on it. Like the above, if Ratchet is using a blue Versa Bolt, the Right Stick will manipulate it. = Direction Pad: Choose Gadget. In the Ratchet Demo, only two gadgets can be equipped, the Hoverboots and the Swingshot, using Right and Up, respectively. Press the Gadget's equip button while it is equipped to unequip it. = X: Jump. Pretty obvious, this makes Ratchet leap into the air. Press X again while in mid-air to make Ratchet flip, giving him a bit more distance. Press and hold X while in mid-air to Glide with the Hoverboots. If you are strafing, pressing X will make Ratchet side-flip in the direction he is running. = Square: Use Wrench. Press once for one swing, twice for a second, and a third to complete the Tri-Strike swing. Pressing Square while in the air will perform a Hyper-strike, which deals double damage. Pressing Square while holding R2 will cause the Wrench Head to pop off and attach to any prompted objects, where you can then manipulate them. If the wrench comes into contact with a pickupable object while performing a move, it'll be caught in the wrench automatically. Hit Square again to throw them if needed. = Circle: Fire the currently equipped Weapon/Use Swingshot. Hold Circle while weilding to Constructo Pistol to rapid fire. If you're using the Swingshot, hold Circle to keep the Tether attached to the Swingshot Target to avoid certain peril. When you do fire, the camera will automatically move behind Ratchet and cause him to Strafe. = Triangle: Press and Hold to activate the Quick Select Ring. Here you can choose from the five weapons available to you. The other two rings are inaccessable unless you put weapons in them. Unlike other games, you cannot have a weapon appear on more than one Quick Select Ring. Tap Triangle to switch to the last weapon you had equipped (tap it again to switch back). = L1: Enter Over the Shoulder Mode. This is the Look Mode of R&C, and entering this mode allows you to precisly fire your weapons in a particular direction, and is especially useful if you want to aim at aerial targets. = L2: This will cause Ratchet to Strafe, meaning he'll always face in the direction the camera is pointing. This is essential for staying alive during battles as it allows you to move around without having Ratchet move his gun's sights away from enemies (like in the original game). = R1: Fire the currently equipped Weapon/Use Swingshot. This does exactly the same thing as Circle does, with the advantage of being in a more convenient position. If you use R1 to fire, you have you right thumb available for hitting X to flip while Strafing. = R2: Hold out Wrench. Holding down R2 is essential for performing a Comet Strike and using the Kinetic Tether, both performed by hitting Square while holding R2. In an advancement over previous Ratchet games, Ratchet can now perform these two moves while moving, whereas in all prior games he would stop while R2 was held down. = Start: Pause the Game. Here you can access the Mission, Inventory, Options and Main Menus. Accessing the latter will quit the current playthrough, meaning you'll have to start over. Missions allows you to scroll through the current and previously completed missions, while Options will allow you to tweak various aspects of the game, such as camera controls, sound volumes, audio mode, subtitles and brightness, amoung other things. = Select: Brings up the map. As you explore the area, the map will get detailed in the places you've explored, however blurry brown areas are places you haven't been to yet. =Shooter Layout Changes= = Right Analog Stick: Moves camera. In Shooter Layout, the camera is more rigid, and Ratchet will always face the direction the camera is facing if he has a Weapon equipped. In addition to having an aiming reticule in this situation, Ratchet also now has the ability to aim up and down, at the expense of having an auto-target. The camera will also not turn around if you run towards it, however if you are using the Hoverboots, the camera will behave like in the Default Layout. = L1: Jump, changed from OTS Mode. Ratchet cannot glide with L1. =Classic Layout Changes= = Circle: Fire Weapon/Use Swingshot. Unlike in Default Layout, firing will not cause the camera to center behind Ratchet and cause him to Strafe, you'll have to move it yourself. =========================== =Gameplay Mechanics #GPM= =========================== There are many different gameplay mechanics in the full version of A Crack in Time, and some of them are featured here in the demos, and a couple are even shared between the two versions. This is here to help you make sense of it all, and free up the main guides. =Crates= Crates are many and plentiful in every Ratchet & Clank game, and it's no different here. All crates give something useful, and most give you bolts, the currency of the Ratchet universe. The most common type of crate is the wooden crate. Perfectly harmless, these crates give you bolts. The second type of crate is the Nanotech crate, which releases Nanotech orbs. Nanotech is your health, and picking up the orbs heals you. The other kinds of crates are only found in the Ratchet demo. The most common here are green Ammo crates, which give you ammo for your weapons. There are also TNT Crates. Hitting these will cause them to detonate, but touching them will start a timer, which will blow up the crate after a short time. Another kind of crate is the Metal Crate, found only in Odin Caves in the Ratchet demo. These crates cannot be opened by basic force, you need explosives, such as that of TNT Crates or the Negotiator, to open them. There are also two crates unique to Crack in Time. The first are Camo Crates, and these are crates that are almost totally transparent, and are hard to spot. Smash these to get a bolt bonus. The final one is the Switch Crate. This crate, found in a small nook in the demo, switches from the Wooden, Ammo and TNT Crates. Smash it in the stage you want to reap the rewards. =Breakables and Fixables= Breakables and Fixables are bolt givers like crates, but on a much smaller scale. In Ratchet levels, there are several objects that you can hit with the Wrench or shoot with a weapon, which will then break and give you bolts. Clank levels have the opposite, once you get a special item, you can whack broken objects with it to fix them and gets bolts. In both levels, there are also several different types of plants you can step on. Again, doing so will give you a couple of bolts. =Quick Select= The Quick Select Ring is one of the most essential features in a Ratchet & Clank game due to the amount of Weapons you can get. Press and Hold Triangle to bring it up and pause the gameplay, and use the Left Stick to select a weapon. If you have weapons on the other Quick Select Rings, you can use L1 and R1 to cycle over to them. To customize the Quick Select, Pause and head into Inventory, then press Triangle. Use the Left Stick to select a weapon, then press X to pick it up and move it to another slot. If you put it in a slot already occupied by a weapon, they'll trade places. Again, to cycle to another Ring, press L1 or R1. If you are playing as Clank, the Quick Select Ring can only be used when you're on Time Pads, and then they're used to access different Time Pad functions, such as Start Recording, Delete Recording, Cancel and Skip Puzzle. Clank's Quick Select cannot be customized. For Ratchet, there is also a Gadget Quick Select, used with the D-Pad. Since Gadgets end up here, they cannot be placed on the normal Quick Select. =Experience= Experience, or XP is what you earn when you kill enemies. They go into your weapons and health and help them upgrade. Upgrading your health makes Ratchet able to take more damage, while upgrading weapons makes them stronger. Weapons in the demo can reach V5, however some may require either focusing solely on that weapon, killing Ratchet when out of enemies, or both, in order to reach V5. Another addition to weapons is that upon reaching V5, they have their look upgraded and gain a special ability. For instance, the Groovibomb Glove is the V5 version of the Groovitron, and explodes after it has finished playing music. These effects and the new names are covered in the Weapons, Gadgets and Items section, #WGI. =Hoverboots= The Hoverboots are extremely useful in getting around certain areas. To activate them, press Right on the D-Pad. Ratchet will then be able to hover around in Cruise Mode. To really pick up speed, hold R2 to go into Speed Mode and blast around a level. There are two types of objects only the Hoverboots can use, HoverJumps and HoverJump Plates. HoverJumps are ramps with blue arrows on them. If you fly over them, Ratchet will go up to top speed and automatically jump off the end. HoverJump Plates are big circular plates with blue markings on them. Jumping onto them will cause Ratchet to spin in front of them for a second before falling. Press X as Ratchet is spinning to leap off in the opposite direction and reach new areas. For more info on how to use the Hoverboots, see the Weapons, Gadgets and Items secion (#WGI). =Gold Bolts, Constructo Mods, and Zoni= Throughout the demos you may come across one of the above three special items. Each one is marked with a border in the guide, ### for Gold Bolts, %%% for Constructo Mods, and @@@ for Zoni. Gold Bolts are only found in the Clank demo, but like in the full game, they give you a Bolt reward when you find them. Constructo Mods and Zoni are found in the Ratchet demo. Zoni upgrade your ship in the full game, and here they give you a Nanotech boost. Constructo Mods are Mods for the Constructo Pistol (and the Constructo Bomb Glove and Shotgun in the full game), changing it's functionality. When you find one, you can choose to go to the customization screen for the Pistol, or leave it as is and check out the mod later. ========================= =Clank Demo Guide #CDG= ========================= =Mission: Travel with Sigmund to meet Orvus= Sigmund wants you to meet Orvus, the Zoni Leader. Follow him! When you start out, you'll be in an area previously explored in the first Clank segment. Follow Sigmund, that tube-shaped orange bucket of bolts, up the stairs with the Left Stick and to balcony. If you need to, flick on to the Options Menu and adjust the camera controls, although be warned that Camera Speed only affects the Horizontal Speed, the Vertical Speed always remains the same. On your way, use Square to have Clank punch the crates to collect bolts. Bolts don't really do anything in the demo, but in the full game, they're used to buy Weapons and Armour. Or at least for Ratchet. Dunno what they do for Clank. Maybe he gives them to Ratchet if they reunite in the full game? Before you move on, you see those plants on the side? Walking over the wide green plants and the purple-green bushes will net you a bolt or two. Not much, but if you love collecting you'll probably go for them. There are also tall thin vine-like plants that also yield bolts if you step on them. Go to the blue triangular pad on the edge of the balcony. This is a Meteor Pad, and it's used to launch Clank (and Ratchet) large distances, usually at the expense of returning to the place the pad was at. Once you're done on the balcony, press X on the pad to head to the next segment. Head to the right and smash the lone crate. If you're hasty, you'll try to jump over the platforms, but the Hypersonic Brainwave Scrambler (furthermore reffered to as the HBS) will smash your way across. The gap is too large to jump over normally. So, jump forwards and press X to activate Clank's Helipack attachment. He'll hop up in the air and then glide for a short while. Press X twice to hop up twice and grab the edge of the ledge (as it were), but press X three times to make it on without any risk. In fact three presses pretty much guarantees success on all long distance platform jumps. If you feel the need to quickly drop down instead of glide down, hit R2 to have Clank deactivate the Heli-pack to drop down. Be careful though, hit it too early and you may fall to oblivion! ###-Gold Bolt-################################################################## When on the other side, head over to the far right end of the area. Follow the edge forwards and to a back section to find a Gold Bolt. Gold Bolts are used to unlock special stuff in the full game, but they also give you a Bolt Bonus too! ################################################################################ Smash the crates in the distance, then use the Helipack Boost Jump to make it up the platforms. Smash the crates while Sigmund opens the door, then walk through when he does. In the next room you'll learn about Temporal Recordings. Sigmund talks about them, but I'll explain them here. In the Great Clock, Clank will come across puzzles which use coloured Time Pads. These Time Pads can be activated to record Clank's actions for up to a minute, and played back while you record another one. Despite the fact that they're holograms, Temporal Recordings can interact with objects like the real Clank, and thus can open doors and the like to help you progress to the next area. These puzzles can get a little tricky, so you are able to access hints via the Time Pad Quick Select. Multiple tips are available if you select it more than one time, and they will often be related to the trick needed to solve the puzzle you're on. However, if you're REALLY stuck, you'll be able to skip the puzzle after ten minutes, at the expense of some Skill Points (in the full game). When you step on a Time Pad that has been recorded, a glowing line will show the path that recording will take. Recordings can also only be played back when you are actually making a recording, so bear that in mind when attempting some puzzles. One neat thing about recordings is that, when you stop them with Triangle, they'll freeze in that position for the entire duration of the puzzle attempt. This is great if you need to hold down a button that opens a door for the remainder of your attempt. I'll give the puzzles their own mini-segment here, and show you the Bribe Price (so to speak) and how many bolts you earn if you complete the puzzle. In addition, I'll use a specific colour code in referring to temporal recordings, instead of referring to them as Clank 1, Clank 2, Real Clank, and so on. Remember, if you do get stuck, access the Hints option while standing on the Time Pad. The Hints Option will display more than one hint if you select it multiple times. =Puzzle 1= Bolt Prize: 199 Bolts This is a pretty easy puzzle, to introduce the concept of these puzzles. Step onto the Blue Pad and start a Recording. Move your bad self onto the large red Lock Pad, which opens the door ahead. The door only works when you're on the button, so end the recording and Clank will warp back. Don't worry, since the Blue Clank's position will be on the button, he'll stay on that button for as long as your attempt will be. Handy, eh? Go onto the Green Pad now and start a recording. As Blue Clank goes to step on the button, head over to the door, which Blue Clank will open. Walk through the doorway to complete the puzzle, and pick up the bolt prize. Nice work! After beating the puzzle, head into the next area and bash up the local crates. =Puzzle 2= Bolt Prize: 300 bolts This puzzle introduces you to rerecording existing recordings to complete puzzles. Move onto the Blue Pad and step onto the red Pad that'll open the Chamber where the Lock Pad is in. Like Lock Pads, Red Pads only work when Clank is standing on them, so end the recording on the Red Pad now. Now go onto the Green Pad and, as Blue Clank opens the Chamber, walk in and open the door. From here, you can't access the door anymore, but the Blue Clank can, so end the recording and re-record the Blue Pad. Now, despite the fact that they're holograms, you will need to open doors and stuff so that they can complete the puzzles (otherwise that'll cause a time anomaly and who knows what will happen! Nah, just kidding, that Clank will just fail the puzzle, and then so will you). As Blue Clank, stand on the button to let Green Clank into the Chamber to open the door. When he does that, casually walk on in and complete the puzzle! Outside, use the Meteor Pad to launch your way into the next area. Again, as Sigmund opens the door, smash the crates, then head inside once he does. In the large room, smash all the crates. Head to the far end and approach the large cylinder with the yellow spirals for Sigmund to explain what the item is inside. Head into the cylinder Sigmund is floating next to to meet Orvus! =Mission 2: Unlock Clank's Memory Banks= Somewhere in Clank's memory banks is the secret to his existence! Explore Clank's subconscious to discover it. For those of you who played Size Matters, you may be wondering why this place looks vastly different from Clank's insides. That is because this area is Clank's subconscious, a physical representation of his own mind, not his actual insides as appeared in Size Matters. Anyway, jump over the platforms to learn about Time Bombs. These blighters are useful in both platforming and combat. Throw one with R1 onto the spinning wheel to slow it down so that you can cross it without too much peril. As Orvus explains when you cross, only one Time Bomb can be thrown at a time. Temporal Recordings can also throw Time Bombs, but if a recording or the real Clank tosses one out while another is active, it may throw off the recording sequence and cause you to fail, and you'll have to rerecord. Finally, Time Bombs will make an alarm clock sound when they're about to expire. Cross the next three wheels using Time Bombs. There is a delay from when Clank throws the bomb and when it actually goes off, and you can use this to leap towards the next wheel safely. On the next platoform, whack the objects to repair them to their former state by reversing time on them. You may have noticed broken objects while exploring the Great Clock, and repairing stuff you come across will give you a bolt or two, like plants. Broken objects only need to be hit once in order to repair them. Make your way into the next area, and
