Binary Dash Star trophy may be impossible

14 posts in this topic

On the top 10 overall for Binary Dash, only one person has gotten over 500,000 (about 570,000). That is 430,000 away from the 1,000,000 for the trophy. I don't see that even if you had a perfect game could you actually get anything remotely close to 1,000,000 - so this may be technically impossible. 

 

Some of the scores this game asks you to do are beyond challenging, while a few have some pretty attainable ones. Not a game for completists...

I tried to calculate the max score, and In my opinion, it is possible, but I'm sure you will need to hit all the lights YEA all of them...  also did a test on how many lights your able to hit every game and the other game I had more lights to press than other games so I think there is some RNG involved.

Nice research! Well then I guess we might say we can move the question from being technically possible to being humanly possible...

 

One thing with trophies like these is I'd like to know if the developers tested out the scores on their own before setting the trophy qualifications. I decided to tweet the developers on this one yesterday but had yet to receive a reply.

Yeah this one irks me. I agree some trophies should be tough to attain, this one does not seem possible though. They don't seem to respond to messaging.

Hi. I currently have the high score on it and I came to the conclusion that getting 1m points is either impossible or very heavily RNG dependent. After attempting it for hours upon hours, I actually recorded my gameplay once and counted every white button to check if it was possible. After counting them up, it didn't seem like there were even close to enough white buttons to get 1m points.

 

EDIT: I edited this down.

I just loaded up the game to check again. Seems like there actually are some extra points given at the end of the bonus round if you clear them all. Maybe the faster you clear the bonus round, the higher the score will be. I'm not holding my breath, as it'll need to be a lot of points to make up for the lack of buttons throughout the game.

 

EDIT 447:

It actually looks possible. I'm pretty close to getting it. Just got 892k. It's definitely time based for the bonus round.

 

EDIT 9001:

Got the Platinum :O. The support-ticket response I received from them around this time last year now makes sense. They said: "you get a score multiplier if you clear the bonus round lights on binary dash. Just run your controllers up and down through all the buttons to clear them all." I thought they just didn't know what they were talking about because I was sure there wasn't any multiplier of any kind. It didn't even cross my mind until today that the "multiplier" was based on the bonus round timer. 0_o. Thanks for making this topic. I would have probably never tried again otherwise. I've checked here every few weeks for the last year to see if anyone has gotten the trophies or has posted anything about it.

Wait for it...

You can actually miss a bunch and it doesn't even matter, lol. I was playing it pretty safe and wasn't even expecting to come anywhere close to 1m that time.

 

Last year, I actually tried my hardest and tried pretty much everything I could think of. The best strategy I found was using the xylophone mallets or the xylophone itself so that I could get a better view of the board. I would sometimes get nearly perfect runs... didn't once cross my mind that you needed to clear the bonus round inhumanly fast. I thought I was already being clever by using the prizes the way I was but now I'm not so certain that this isn't how it was intended to be beaten in the first place...😕.

Incredible dude! Thanks for sharing this - I've noticed your name on some of the leaderboards. Any other "cheats" with those prizes? I'm still having a hard time getting anything more than 2800 on the shooting gallery - not sure where to find those other 4000 points. The others just seem difficult - bowling is unforgiveable, so many great shots don't knock the pins I think they should... 

 

It makes some sense that maybe using the prizes for some of these is key

I used the prizes to get the trophies for Binary Dash, Arctic Shuffle, Scarab Toss, and Bowling.

 

- Arctic Shuffle, I clipped the ring toss board and other objects into the end of the board to stop the penguins from falling off. Seems that others figured this one out too, because some of the score are insane.

 

- Scarab Toss, I kept throwing the ring toss board into the machine and eventually got an angle that helped to bank the balls into the pot.

 

- Bowling, I'll just have to make a video showing it. This one is super scummy but it's pretty funny though. Could have easily gotten all strikes but I didn't want to go overboard and ruin the scoreboard in case anyone could pull this nonsense off legit. The bowling physics are absolute trash and if any of the trophies are nigh-impossible to do normally, it's getting three strikes in a row. I'm actually pretty decent at bowling in real life and I tried for probably around 15 hours over a few days and I don't think I once got even two strikes in a row. Throwing the ball overhead, in a straight line, was about the most consistent I could find but even that was an absolute crapshoot. It doesn't look like they tested the Moves with this one for more than a minute before calling it quits. I'll post a video later.

 

Didn't use a prize for Super Shoot (basketball), but I did set floor really low so that I was more level with the hoop. Had to crouch to pick up the balls, so it was quite a workout, but it was much easier to make the shots. 

 

The rest I did normally, including the shooting gallery. Don't really remember how I did that one, but it was a pain.

wow, congrats on the plat @AllErased I never thought about using some rewards to my advantage in this game, I will defiantly go back now to clean this list up! 

They only thing I cheesed where you had to slam the mols you can pick up another stick to smash them to make that easier.

 

@DOAsaturn, I know for the shooting gallery you have some really sneaky targets in the sky up above when I found those out I got the trophy first try.

 

My only problem is getting the basketball game done because I hit the ceiling when trying to throw it, haha.

And here's the bowling one: https://streamable.com/lyj65

Aim for the top left of the opening or it'll just get stuck.

 ✈️🎳❌❌❌ :gold:

 

@Yuichiro-Akuhei

That's what I did for the whack-a-mole one as well. Forgot to mention it. That also reminds me, I actually did cheese the shooting gallery by using two guns.

Its possible they patched that shooting gallery one - since I've used two guns and it splits the score over two different games lol. I almost feel like bringing the rifle over from the other one just for fun...

@AllErased Congrats! You did what I thought was impossible but never really thought of using the prizes in such a way. But man, its just a pain to get the high scores on some of these games. Guess I'll have to give it another try.

That, is a thing of beauty
