Blitz Breaker - PS5 Platinum Review

Get your reflexes into gear and whizz through puzzles with this unique gravity-defying platformer!

Blitz Breaker is a puzzle based platformer with very simple controls. All you can do is press X to jump (when you're on the ground) and press the 4 directions to air-dash. The game is quite basic from that point, but you'll have to get your reflexes spot on to get through the levels quick enough for the top scores. As you dash into a wall, you'll bounce back slightly, then gravity will take effect and you'll begin to fall. You'll have to use this to your advantage to avoid spikes, cannons and other hazards while grabbing coins and keys to unlock the way to the exit.

The game is really fun and addictive and although you'll die a lot, it's definitely one of those "one more go" type of games. As soon as you die you're back in the action within a second, so it's really just down to training your brain and getting the muscle memory to blitz through each stage.

For the Platinum you'll be looking at somewhere between 30 mins to an hour. The first time you play through you'll probably take longer to figure out the solutions, but once you know each of the levels it should be much quicker the second time around (assuming you're playing the PS4 and PS5 versions which are bundled together).

For the fastest route to the Platinum, you'll have to complete all of the levels in the first world, getting all of the coins and therefore all of the stars, then complete each of the bonus "warp" levels which are a lot more tricky than the standard levels with all stars too. After that you'll probably have to get through world 2-1 for enough points for one of the trophies, then all that's left will probably be dying over and over until the trophy for 150 deaths pops, although on your first run it wouldn't be surprising if this pops naturally as you'll die a lot.

  • Date Started: 7th July, 2021
  • Date Completed: 7th July, 2021

The Good

  • Short levels, which are sort of easy once you know what to do.
  • Addictive gameplay. You'll have to play the levels multiple times and memorise the button presses to get through them correctly.
  • Quick to get back into the action when you die.
  • The PS4 and PS5 versions are bundled together offering two Platinums for one low price.



The Bad

  • Some of the bonus levels are a lot tricker than the first world's standard levels.



Hardest Trophy

  • Score Climper III - Score 10,000 points in story mode.

You can improve your score on each individual level by getting through it faster and making sure you collect all of the gold coins, but to get this trophy you're going to need to get through World 1-1, 1-2, 1-3 and probably 2-1. I was quite unlucky when I checked my score after completing all of the above to find I needed 4 more points for the trophy! Thankfully you should be able to complete one of the earlier levels much quicker once you get the hang of the game so it's easy to make up extra points if you need it. There are of course other levels to complete after World 2-1 too but they get progressively harder.




Helpful Tips / Bugs / Glitches / Exploits

There's none really. The best tip I can give it to keep trying until you get the whole level into your muscle memory. Learn each little bit one by one then eventually put it all together. It's not hugely difficult and you'll always have the sense that you're going to be able to complete the level with a few more tries.




Platinum Difficulty Rating - 3/10

3/10

There are some levels which are definitely tricky. One of the bonus levels probably took me 100 lives before I got through it but given the game is fairly short, plus the fact you can skip levels and try to get your points or stars on later levels, it's not too much of a challenge. There's a definite sense of accomplishment when you get through a hard level though.




Platinum Time - 30 Mins - 2 Hours

Once you know what you're doing and learn the levels and the best way to approach them, it's easily possibly to complete the game in under 30 minutes, but it is a bit skill dependent. Given you don't have to do an awful lot for the Platinum, I think you should definitely get it within 2 hours unless you really struggle.




Platinum Enjoyment Rating - 9/10

9/10
I really enjoyed it. It's an addictive game and because you know the Platinum isn't too far away, it makes you want to push through and complete the next level.


Overall Game Rating - 9/10

9/10
A really unique and fun platformer. A bit tricker than most of the low-price, easy Platinums, so there is a sense of accomplishment for finishing this one, but there's a good hour or two of fun gameplay to be had. Definitely recommended to anyone who thinks their hand-eye coordination and reflexes could do with a test!
