    A2: Planet Aranos - Flying Lab (Part 1)
    After the cut-scene, walk onto the platform with the flashing light and 
    it will take you up to your next room. You will encounter your first 
    enemies in this next room, the MSR 1, take out your lancer and shoot 
    them. Continue on, at the end of the room you'll encounter some stairs, 
    jump and grab them, and scale it to the next room.
    Tip: Destroy everything for bolts, and collect every bolt. Bolts are 
    used to buy weapons, gadgets, and items. Break crates you see for 
    Megacorp crates contain ammo for all your weapons break them for free 
    At the top of the stairs, look on the left for the next path, continue 
    down it, and kill the new MSR 2's along the way. In the next room, kill 
    the few enemies and turn right, go through this space and fight the 
    other enemies, including the new PX6 Blade ball.
    Tip: Nanotech is your life; they are in little boxes that are clear on 
    the sides, with a blue or pinkish ball. Collect them for life.
    After the PX6 Blade balls, continue along the path and ride the 
    up, take out your gravity bomb (press triangle for quick select and 
    it) shoot it a the large group of enemies in front of the door you need 
    to pass through. Go into this room, and it will go to a cut-scene in 
    which the thief catches you and steals the protopet. After the cut 
    you'll have to destroy the enemies for a minute and a hatch will open.
    Tip: Remember to strafe it helps out a lot.
    Go in the hatch and use your gravity bomb to destroy the group of 
    enemies and turn around and jump into the broken glass and the game 
    go to another cut scene. After the cut scene another large group of 
    enemies appear, yet again pull out your gravity bomb and dispose of 
    them. Ride the elevator in the next room up, and take out the enemies 
    along the corridor.
    Tip: Use L1 to aim at enemies
    In the room with 2 doors, use the gravity bomb to take them all out. Go 
    in the door on the left, and a cut-scene will start.
    A3: Planet Oozla - Megacorp Outlet
    From the start, look right, for a trail.
    Tip: Megacorp vendors are used to buy weapons for Ratchet. Don't buy 
    anything yet though. Also, remember to break everything, plants, etc.
    Keep going along the path until you meet the new kinds of enemies: 
    Mutant Muck dweller, Mutant Swamp Beast, and Mutant Fireflies. Dispose 
    of them with the lancer, or if they are close together, use the gravity 
    bomb. Jump across the platforms and launch the gravity bomb at the 
    Mutant Muck dwellers.
    Tip: A good rule to use is to continuously use a weapon until it is 
    upgraded. Use your map continuously; press the R3 button or Select to 
    bring it up.
    Continue along and take out the few enemies you find. You'll see a 
    purple dragon in the muck. Jump on its back and it will take you to 
    another dragon boat. Ride that one till it is close enough to the 
    again. Turn around and take out the boxes for some bolts. Continue 
    the path and into the cave killing the enemies you see. You'll see a 
    Venus flytrap thing that is huge, you can jump on it for a second, and 
    then jump up onto the ledge and down near the dragon boats. Traverse 
    dragon boats until you get to a part with a Swamp beast, and jump off 
    there. Go along the path and use your gravity bomb on the upcoming 
    of enemies. After that area you'll need to ride the dragon boats again, 
    it's located along the left in the new area. Jump on its back and jump 
    onto the Venus flytraps, and another dragon boat. On the part with 
    several flytraps, traverse them, to the new part. Slide down the tube, 
    and it will go to a cut scene. After the cut scene buy the tractor 
    Platinum bolt: After purchasing the tractor beam, on the left there is 
    pillar. Move the other pillars into a step to go on top of the pillar 
    and grab the platinum bolt.
    After the platinum bolt, move the pillars to the other edge in the same 
    manor, to get on top of it. Continue along the path, you'll get to 
    another flashing button, press it so the stairs go down. After going 
    back down, to your ship, take the path with the Megacorp Vendor next to 
    it. Go down this path and you'll get to an area cut into 2, by a trail 
    of muck in the middle. Launch a gravity bomb and take out all the 
    enemies across it, and jump over the little piece. Keep going along 
    area, and kill the fireflies, go right, onto the little platform in the 
    muck. Kill the swamp beasts that jump out of the water, don't forget 
    area on the left, behind the log. Kill the enemies in there for some 
    more experience. Back on the trail, continue along the Lilly pads, 
    killing the enemies along the way. After the Lilly pads, go right, and 
    then left on the trail killing enemies. Jump on the next platforms. Get 
    across the platforms. Go along the path until you encounter your first 
    mini-boss battle, The Swamp Monster 1. To beat this enemy, strafe the 
    whole time, and jump out of the way of the tentacles that will try to 
    slam you to the ground. At the same time, shoot the monsters tentacles 
    and/or his eye. After the boss go across the new lily pads, and take 
    the enemies. Get up next the building and go to the left. Grab the 
    dynamo, and activate the dynamo, and ride the platform up. Go up to the 
    doors, and into the building. Look on the right for another dynamo to 
    activated, go on the new platform and activate another dynamo, jump on 
    that platform and ride it across. Kill the fireflies, go right and 
    activate the dynamos to get across the space. Continue along the path 
    and kill the swamp beasts. Go out of the door, and jump over the gap on 
    the way. Go into the new doors and activate the other dynamos. Don't go 
    all the way straight, you'll need the gravity boots, and you get them 
    later in the game. Go left and activate the dynamo. Jump on the 
    platforms to get through them the fastest. A cut scene will happen when 
    you enter this room. After the cut scene go to activate the other 
    use the translocator to your ship.
    Platinum bolt: Take the path you did to get the tractor beam. After the 
    platforms, look on the left for a dragon boat that will take you to a 
    cave, in which, a platinum bolt is inside.
     After getting the platinum bolt go to your ship and go to Maktar 
    When you get the gravity boots, return here and go back to the megacorp 
    outlet using the translocator, go back through the corridor and turn 
    left, go up the side of the wall, and slide down the hole. You'll come 
    to a boss that will give you the box breaker if you beat it.
    A4: Wupash Nebula
    This is your first maxi-game. Use the controls I stated above. Barrel 
    roll if you are being shot from behind. After this battle you'll 
    automatically go to Maktar Nebula.
    A5: Maktar Nebula - Maktar Resort
    From the start, go down the path and kill the Thugs-4-less brute, and 
    continue down the right path. Along the way kill the megacorp chicken 
    bots, at the end of the path, look on the left, and use your tractor 
    beam on the column and move it. In the next room, use the tractor beam 
    on the robot and put him at the pad at the opposite side of the room. 
    the next room, forget the bomb in the middle for a second, continue 
    following the path and kill the chicken bots. Go back to the bomb, use 
    the tractor beam, and bring it to the end of the path to blow up the 
    glass wall. Kill the brute and grab the robot with the tractor beam 
    again. Go to the new room, put the robot in the middle of the room, in-
    between the bars. Launch him up towards the door, on the second level. 
    He will walk on the pad, and open the door. Continue up the stairs; 
    along the path kill the brutes and chicken bots. Go left at the path 
    get the bomb. Go back the way you came to the glass door, and blow it 
    up. In the next area, launch the bombs at the targets in the air with 
    energy beams attached to them. After you destroyed all 4 of them go 
    the limo. It will take you to your first planetoid. When you start on 
    the planetoid, go forward and kill the chicken bots, and use your 
    on the bolt before the transponder. It will bring the transponder up, 
    and then hit the bars on it.
    Platinum bolt: You'll need clank for this, after getting clank, come 
    back and jump on top of the limo. Turn around and jump on top of the 
    platform. Use the boost and it will launch you up to a platinum bolt.
    After the 1st transponder, follow the energy trails on the ground to 
    next transponder. Kill the chicken bots and the MSR models on the way. 
    If you can't follow the energy trails this is how it goes. Go straight 
    to the 1st one, straight to the 2nd one, right to a boost up to the 3rd 
    one. From the top look for a green light and follow it. There are 6 
    transponders. If you can't find them, press R3 or Select to open up 
    map, and look for them. After returning from the planetoid, go down the 
    other path now from the beginning. Kill all of the brutes and chicken 
    bots (your weapons should have/or will be upgraded soon). Go up the 
    elevator and launch a gravity bomb at the group of enemies. Go into the 
    limo up ahead. At the new spot, jump onto the wall and shimmy towards 
    the stairs, climb up them, and launch another gravity bomb at the 
    group/s of enemies.
    Platinum bolt: After scaling the stairs, there is a Platinum Bolt on 
    raised area on the right. If you can't get to it, come back with clank.
    After killing all of the enemies, go to the end and wall bounce in-
    between the walls. At the top, look in the next room and launch another 
    gravity bomb at the enemies. Go through this area and kill all the 
    chicken bots and the brutes. Fill up on ammo at the megacorp vendor 
    before entering the arena. The arena is fairly easy. I recommend 
    all the enemies in big groups and shooting them with a gravity bomb to 
    take them all out, then shooting the rest with the lancer. After 
    the battle you get the electrolyzer. You can either continue fighting 
    the arena to earn big bolts or leave. After leaving the arena, you're 
    going to have to complete a few electrolyzer puzzles. Right after the 
    first puzzle and crossing the bridge, a cut scene will happen, after 
    cut scene, do the last puzzle and go to your new planet, Planet Endako.
    A6: Planet Endako - Megapolis
    At the start, I recommend buying a new weapon, namely the Blitz Gun.  
    After purchasing that, go on the left path first. You'll need to do 
    another electrolyzer puzzle to get into the door. After going into the 
    door, kill the Megacorp Sweeper Bots, and go do another electrolyzer 
    puzzle to get the crane to work. After completing the puzzle use the 
    crane to grab the box, and put it near the high opening. Go into the 
    room and go into the available door. Use the blitz gun to take out the 
    sweeper bots. Go right and kill the Megacorp Rivet Bot. Follow the 
    killing everything, including the Megacorp laser bot, and then on the 
    left there is a passage to go through.  Kill the rivet bot and go 
    the chasm. In the next room use the electrolyzer for yet again another 
    puzzle. This time go into the next room and take the box on the left as 
    soon as you enter the new room, take it back up to the door next to 
    and use it to blow out the door, then go back through the room you just 
    entered, go across that room into another room and move the crate up 
    next to another opening again.
    Platinum Bolt: Go into the 2nd crane room; look for a door in the wall. 
    Move the non-exploding crate over to it, then pick up the exploding 
    crate, and put it on the other one, it will blow out the door, and a 
    platinum bolt is inside.
    Go into the door that you just put a box next to and enter it. Kill the 
    two rivet bots with the blitz gun, after that ride the elevator on the 
    right up and a cut scene will happen in the next room. After the cut 
    scene, do the electrolyzer puzzle to free Clank. After that a cut scene 
    will happen, and then you play as Clank for a fairly short mission. As 
    Clank, go out and glide down to the next platform with the sweeper bots 
    and dispose of them. Follow the platform all the way around and punch 
    the microbots free. Use the microbots to kill the laser bot, pressing 
    triangle shows you the commands. Follow the path killing the bots, in 
    the next room, look on the left for a bridgebot. Command the bridgebot 
    to make a bridge and go over it and kill the laser bots. Again on the 
    left of the room, there is a new bot, the lifter bot (the only time you 
    use it in the game); command the lifter bot to lift and go threw the 
    passage. Follow the path and kill the laser bots, make the bridgebot 
    make a bridge, go over it, and use the enter command. A door will open, 
    have Clank go into the door, and press the flashing button. A cut scene 
    will happen. After this go into gadgets, go down to where the heli-pack 
    and thruster pack are, change to the thruster pack. Then just follow 
    rest of the path. Now take the right path from the start. Continue 
    hitting the garbage cans and killing the bots to get threw the area. 
    Follow the path, and you will see the Thugs-4-less ship, ignore it. 
    following the path over the floating ships all the way to the end.
    Platinum bolt: At the end of the path, look down; go down in that area, 
    the platinum bolt is right there.
    Go back and take the path on the right. Hit the garbage can and take 
    all the enemies. Keeping going threw the door and up the elevator. Kill 
    all of the bots and hit all of the garbage cans. Eventually you'll get 
    to the Thugs-4-less ship you have to fight. I recommend the blitz gun. 
    After defeating him, a translocator will appear, use it and it will 
    you to Clank's apartment. Here you will get 2 items: the Swingshot, and 
    the grind boots. Use the dynamo on the pyramid on clanks table for a 
    little game. After that, hit it for some bolts. Continue to follow the 
    trail using your swingshot till you get back to your ship.
    Mod vendor: Go back on the right trail, where the elevator is. Don't 
    the elevator, look out into the city for a swingshot post, use your 
    swingshot, and traverse the grind rails. A few times you will need to 
    swingshot across gaps in the rail. After the rail, a cut scene will 
    happen, the mod shop guy will appear, buy mods for the blitz gun with 
    platinum bolts, and you should have 6 of them. Then go on the 
    translocator back to your ship. Go to Planet Barlow.
    Nano-tech boost: After getting the infiltrator, go back to the 2nd 
    room. Enter the room, and on the back wall of the next room, do the 
    infiltrator puzzle. The door will open revealing the nano-tech boost.
    A7: Planet Barlow - Vukovar Canyon
    From the start, turn right and go into the cave killing Megacorp's 
    of Cuddly Death (hounds). After the short cave kill the Vukovar 
    Tribesmen and a few Barlowian Saur-beasts. Keep going straight killing 
    all of the enemies, eventually you'll get to a bridge. Bust out your 
    gravity bomb here, and kill the large group of tribesmen. After the 
    bridge, there will be a few beasts, just jump on the edge of the bridge 
    and kill them with ease. Continue going down the trail and you'll see 
    tribesmen in a circle, shoot them with the gravity bomb as well. 
    Continue through the building, and you'll get to a big piece of land 
    the camera will jump and show a huge group of tribesmen approaching. 
    Again, use your gravity bomb/mini-nuke, and kill all of them. A new 
    bridge will connect and you'll follow it to the last gadgetron vendor. 
    After getting what you want at the vendors, go straight ahead, and 
    double jump over the gap. A cut scene will happen, after that fix the 
    hover bike with the electrolyzer, and beat the race. Make sure to get 
    all the boosts, everyone you see, and hold down R1. Avoid the beasts in 
    the field you will get to.
    Platinum bolt: In the hover bike race, right after the water tunnel, 
    take a sharp left over the rail and the platinum bolt is right there.
    After the races, turn around and go back over the gap, and go right, 
    kill the hounds and turn right going up the dirt path. Use your 
    swingshot and get to the turning column. Jump on a platform rotating on 
    it, and ride it to the other side. Again, use your swingshot to draw 
    close the platform. In the next room, swim through it and back up.
    Platinum bolt: After getting out of the water, turn around and shimmy 
    the right side of the wall, then go along that path with the swingshot 
    and the turning column into a cave. The platinum bolt is inside.
    Ride the platforms to the other side, and use your swingshot to get to 
    the other side of the gap. Again there is a swimming part, after that; 
    there is a set of targets for the swingshot. If you are getting out of 
    control, just hold circle but don't move, after you have stopped, swing 
    back and forth again. At the end of the targets there is a rotating 
    column, ride that and keep your swingshot out. While going around it 
    you'll see a target to pull a platform close. Kill the enemies on the 
    little area, and then use your swingshot to get to the other side. In 
    this building hit the guy in the ice block. A cut scene will happen, 
    then you'll need to buy the thermanator. After buying that, go left and 
    thaw the water, swim through the tunnel. Then freeze the water so you 
    can get on top of the higher ledge. Now go back to your ship and go to 
    the Thug Rendezvous.
    A8: Thug Rendezvous - Feltzin System
    There is no real strategy to this ship battle, just barrel roll out of 
    the way if other ships are shooting you from behind.
    Platinum bolt: After getting through all the challenges except 
    4, do challenge 4, but go through all the rings AND win; a platinum 
    will appear at the finish ring.
    Nanotech boost: Go inside the big base like thing in the middle of the 
    level, it is on the floor in a room inside.
    After that, go to Planet Notak.
    A9: Planet Notak - Canal City
    From the start DON'T go over the bridge, instead take the left path. 
    Kill the chicken bots and the Thugs-4-less henchman. You'll enter a 
    on the left in which you need to kill a few enemies, and then continue 
    out of it to see more henchmen. Go around this whole area, killing 
    everything. Take the elevator up to the next level, and kill everything 
    including the Thugs-4-less attack ship. Go across the bridge and kill 
    the henchmen.
    Platinum bolt: Go across a bridge and turn right, then go left all the 
    way to a little area next to a building. Shoot the Megacorp sign, and a 
    platinum bolt is behind it.
    Ride the elevator up once again, killing enemies, and going across the 
    bridge. Go up another elevator and grab the nano-tech boost, and then 
    take the translocator back to your ship. Now, this time go across the 
    Platinum bolt: Right after the bridge, go left behind the building; 
    is where the platinum bolt is.
    Go straight, then look on the left for a path, go in there and take out 
    the therminator. Freeze the water and keep going. Kill the chicken bots 
    and the generator. Continue going until you see chicken bots and an 
    attack ship. Kill them and go right up the path.
    Platinum bolt: Look right after going up the path and you'll see a 
    dynamo. Continue up the path till you see and punch of henchmen, kill 
    them, then walk next to the railing where the dynamo was, activate it 
    and a door will open behind a bunch of barrels, the platinum bolt is 
    Go up the elevator, killing enemies, you'll get to a screen and a cut 
    scene will happen. After that jump off and glide to the ground below. 
    across the bridge to the Chemical Factory. Open the door. Then use your 
    thermanator to freeze the water and get up top to a screw to make a 
    bridge across. The rest of the place is just freezing water and thawing 
    water, eventually you'll get to a place where a cut scene will happen 
    and you will have to buy a transmission. Now that you have the 
    coordinates to Slim's Ship Shack, go there and see what you can buy.
    A10: Slim's Ship Shack - Slim Cognito's
    There is no mission here, but you can upgrade your ship to make the 
    space battles easier. Now go to Planet Siberius.
    A11: Planet Siberius - Frozen Base
    Follow the path killing the MSR models and blade balls. Ride the 
    elevator down.
    Platinum bolt: After riding the elevator down, use your tractor beam to 
    grab the column and bring it on the elevator with you. Then bring it 
    near the garage you passed at the beginning. Jump on the column, and on 
    the little piece of railing, and then jump into the garage for a 
    platinum bolt.
    Platinum bolt: Near the elevator, look over at the building across from 
    you. Glide over onto the building, and look near some trees behind it, 
    platinum bolt is there.
    After the elevator continue going down the path destroying enemies, 
    use the Vendor near the convoy to load up on ammo, and buy the 
    synthenoids. Go into the back of the truck, killing enemies and using 
    your swingshot to go from truck to truck. Attack the thief with the 
    blitz gun. After the first encounter, continue to traverse the trucks, 
    and fight the thief one more time. After that, the truck will flip 
    and you will have to go up the platform and fight the thief for the 
    time. The synthenoids and the blitz gun should kill him quickly. A cut 
    scene will play and then go to Planet Tabora.
    A12: Planet Tabora - Mining Area
    After the cut scene, you start in a cave near a megacorp vendor. Buy 
    lava gun. Traverse the cave until you get outside, go by your ship, and 
    the Mystic will tell you to find 10 crystals in the desert around you. 
    First, go to the megacorp vendor, turn around and go through the 
    building. Go down into the cave and freeze the pool of water. Jump on 
    the frozen water and go right. You'll get to a platform floating in the 
    water. Stand the first thing to it, and freeze the water. Go up the 
    platform to the 2 waterfalls and freeze them. Then wall bounce in 
    between the frozen waterfalls. You'll get to the glider. Go through the 
    Platinum bolt: In a room where you have to stand on the platform, and 
    freeze the water, go to the side you're trying to get up to. Freeze the 
    water while standing on that side, climb the platforms and look left 
    a hole in the wall; the platinum bolt is in there.
    Platinum bolt: At the end of the glider course there is a platinum 
    Nano-tech boost: On top of one of the pillars in the glider course.
    Take the teleport back to the mystic and start collecting crystals.
    Mod vendor: Stand on top of your ship, and face your ship's right side. 
    Keep going straight over the fence and the mod vendor is near that 
    Platinum bolt: There is another platinum bolt in the desert, along the 
    edge of the northeastern side, just look in that area and you will find 
    After collecting 10 of the crystals return to the Mystic and he will 
    your ship. Then travel to Planet Dobbo.
    Tip: There are still crystals in the desert; the Mystic will pay you 
    1000 bolts for each.
    A13: Planet Dobbo - Testing Facility
    Go to the armor vendor on the middle platform, and buy the tetrafiber 
    armor. Go back to the weapons vendor and buy the minirocket tube. Now 
    into the translocator. From the start you see Megacorp Sentinels, shoot 
    them with the minirocket tube. Continue going down the path killing all 
    the enemies, including the Blade ball v2.0, Megacorp security turrets, 
    and Megacorp troopers. Eventually you'll get to an elevator, ride it 
    and kill the Megacorp hover tank. Use the swingshot to get across the 
    gap and use the dynamo's to get to the elevator. At the top a cut scene 
    will play. Now you have to use the glider to follow the maintenance 
    Nano-tech boost: Before you launch off with the glider look for the 
    boost in the left side of the room. Use the glider, and go into the 
    right after the one your in, swoop up to the right side, and swoop down 
    on the right. Then just swoop back up in the previous room to grab the 
    nano-tech boost.
    Follow the robot with the glider and eventually you'll get to a place 
    with an electrolyzer puzzle.
    Platinum bolt: In the large room at the end, swoop up and the platinum 
    bolt is in the middle of the bars.
    After doing to electrolyzer puzzle, use the translocator to go back to 
    the core terminal. Buy the transmission. After that, use the 
    translocator to get back outside the building to the start of the level 
    again. This time go on the other path. Kill the Megacorp Chickenbot 
    and the troopers. You'll get to some dynamos you'll need to activate. 
    Get across those. Kill all of the enemies including the tank, and 
    swingshot across the gap. Keep following the trail, up the stairs. 
    Eventually you'll get to a tank, kill it with the minirocket tube and 
    swingshot across. Go around the building and up the stairs. Use the 
    swingshot to get across the gap.
    Platinum bolt: After going across the gap, go into the room on the 
    You'll need the spider bot to get into the vent, to open a door with 
    platinum bolt inside.
    Continue to go, activate the dynamos and get across the swingshot 
    targets. A cut scene will play and Clank will turn into Giant Clank, 
    you'll go to your next planetoid. Again there is no real strategy to 
    fighting the Thugs-4-less leader, just break down buildings for ammo, 
    and health, and kill all the helicopters attacking you because they 
    health. After that return to start with the convenient taxi sitting 
    an edge for you and go to the Hrugis Cloud.
    A14: Hrugis Cloud - Deep Space Disposal Facility
    This space battle is easier than the last. If you bought the fusion 
    laser cannons, triple-boost acceleration engine, and the torpedoes or 
    fast-lock missile launcher your in good shape for this, if not, go back 
    to the Thug Rendezvous and do the challenges for some raritanium, and 
    buy them. After you complete this challenge, go to Planet Joba.
    Platinum bolt: On the 4th challenge go through all the rings and 
    platinum bolt will be at the finish ring.
    A15: Planet Joba - Megacorp Games
    From the start go straight and kill the Joba Tribesmen.
    Nano-tech boost: After killing the tribesmen, look right for a dynamo 
    activator on a wall, activate it, then go inside of the building and 
    activate the other one so a bridge will form. The boost is on the right 
    at the end of the room.
    Go into the building and activate the dynamo, get across the bridge and 
    kill all of the enemies and the Jobian Saur-Beast. Climb the ladder and 
    kill the tribesmen trying to use the turret. Go over to the door with 
    the button on the ground and push it. Climb the ladder to the top.
    Platinum bolt: After climbing the ladder look to the right and into the 
    air, there is a swing- shot target. Swing across killing the enemies, 
    and follow the trail to the end. You'll have to kill all the enemies, 
    and then push the button; the door will open revealing the platinum 
    Again, do what you did before killing the tribesmen and you'll get to a 
    dynamo activator, use it and a platform will appear, ride it all the 
    to the top. After that, in the room kill all of the enemies, and press 
    the button to get out of the door at the top of the room. Slide down 
    rail and a cut scene will play. Buy the levitator.
    Platinum bolt: After buying the levitator, use it and fly all the way 
    the top of the column on the left. A platinum bolt is at the top.
    Use the levitator to fly all the way to the building ahead. Go into the 
    building and into the arena. Beat the first challenge for the gravity 
    boots, complete the cage match for the infiltrator and you can leave or 
    stay and earn bolts. Exit the arena and do your first infiltrator 
    puzzle. Now from the start again, go to the right and you will see a 
    swingshot target, go across the gap and lower the bridges. You'll get 
    a cut scene and you'll have to beat the race for the charge boots.
    Nano-tech boost: To get this, you'll need to be on challenge 3. After 
    exiting the tunnels into the mud, go slow and look to the right. Go 
    the secret path, and the nano-tech boost is on the left on the trail.
    After that, go to Planet Todano.
    A16: Planet Todano - Megacorp Armory
    From the beginning, follow the tourists all the way to the end of the 
    Platinum bolt: After the tourists leave, follow the Abercrombie 
    Fizzwidget into a room with the platinum bolt inside.
    At the end of the trail, look for an electrolyzer puzzle, complete the 
    puzzle and an elevator will come down. Follow the new path that the 
    elevator took you to, and go straight towards the electric fence. Kill 
    the Megacorp Robot Guards and the Mutant Test-Squirrels. Go onto the 
    elevator in the building and take it down a level.
    Nano-tech boost: Walk around the missile, right after the door at the 
    end there will be an infiltrator puzzle, do it and an elevator will 
    down to take you up a level, to get the boost up top.
    Continue through the door, and the building and you'll come to an 
    infiltrator puzzle again, do it and you will enter a room in which a 
    scene will play. Return to the Megacorp vendor, and now take the right 
    path into the building. Move the tractor column to block the field.
    Platinum bolt/Armor Magnetizer: In the room with 2 tractor columns and 
    an inspector bot, get to the other side of the room with both columns. 
    Look up on the left wall for an opening; make a staircase with the 
    columns. Go up there and you can trade a Quark Acton Figure (Obtained 
    Planet Aranos Part 2), and a platinum bolt inside the building next to 
    the nerd. After getting through the fields put the inspector bot on the 
    pad so the door will open. Go through the corridor into a big room.
    Platinum bolt: Look on your right for a conveyor belt, get on top of it 
    and go with its movement. At the end there will be a vent, launch a 
    spiderbot into it and push the button in a room you will get into.
    Move the tractor column to block the field and grab the inspector bot 
    open the door. Ride the elevator up and in a few of the next rooms you 
    will need to move missiles. To solve each puzzle, make it go from 
    smallest to largest starting on the left side. Eventually you'll get to 
    a spot there you need to put the tractor column on a conveyor belt and 
    ride it to the other side of the room. After that continue exploring 
    you will end up in a room with the sheepinator, grab it, and go to 
    Planet Boldan.
    A17: Planet Boldan - Silver City
    From the start look for a taxi and take it to an elevator. It will take 
    you to a levitator pad, use it to fly through the tunnel; eventually 
    you'll get to another pad. Use this one to fly into traffic to another 
    one, and use that one to fly through the electric tunnel. You'll get to 
    an elevator and take it to the top, and step on the flashing button. 
    After that take a right and grind the rails to the end.
    Mod vendor: The mod vendor is right after the rails in the little area 
    press the button and all of the mods will be available for the weapons 
    you have. Buy all the mods for your minirocket tube and your lava gun.
    Go into the room ahead and use the translocator back to the flashing 
    button. Go straight killing the Thugs-4 less henchmen and the Class 2 
    brutes. Take the left path and kill everything in that area.
    Platinum bolt: After getting through the corridor to the left path, 
    a right and launch a spiderbot into the area with the platinum bolt, 
    make it step on the button, and the other side will go down allowing 
    to get the platinum bolt from the other side.
    Now go back and take the right path. Kill everything in this area.
    Nano-tech boost: Just after getting out of the right corridor, look to 
    the northwest for a fountain, a nano tech boost appears every other 
    on top of the fountain, if it isn't there, save the game and change 
    clock settings, or just wait till your next hour.
    Take the elevator up, and kill all of the brutes. Follow the path to 
    another elevator that will take you down. Kill all of the brutes here 
    and follow the path to yet another elevator. At the top there will be 
    armor and weapon vendor. Go to the armor vendor and buy the duraplate 
    armor. Now walk to the door right after the vendors, and walk down the 
    side of the building. At the bottom a door will open up for you to walk 
    into. Walk along the twisting path, and kill animals. The next area is 
    another area where you need to kill a lot of enemies. Ride the elevator 
    Platinum bolt: After riding the elevator up, turn to your left, you'll 
    see the platinum bolt on a floating platform.
    Swingshot across the gap, then walk on the twisting walkway to the 
    elevator, take it up. Go across and you'll need to walk down another 
    building. After you get down go into the next room. A cut scene will 
    play and you will be whisked away to Planet Aranos Part 2.
    Platinum bolt: Return to Planet Boldan and go to the room where you got 
    captured, look up at the room for a target for the swingshot. Swingshot 
    up, the platinum bolt is up there.
    A18: Planet Aranos - Flying Lab Part 2
    From the start you control Clank. Jump onto the platforms and get 
    the chasm. Go to the left and get the hammer bot. Make him go on the 
    elevator with you and ride it up. Have him smash the boxes in the way. 
    Eventually you'll get to a seesaw type thing, stand on the end with the 
    big bottom, and then command the hammer bot to hammer. You'll get 
    launched to the higher level. Go through the corridors and get the 
    microbots. Take them on the elevator you'll come across, down will you. 
    Press the flashing button and wait for the hammer bot to come to you. 
    Make the microbots go on the new seesaw with you and command the hammer 
    bot to hit you guys up to the next level. Make the microbots go in the 
    door. Continue from this next room and go up the elevator on the left. 
    Free the microbots and have them attack the MSR 1's. At the end of the 
    tunnels, make them enter the door and press the flashing button on the 
    Now it goes to Ratchet's turn. The megacorp vendor is there 
    for you; buy the shield charger. Next go through the corridors, and up 
    on the platform that will make you walk on the wall. Continue through 
    this area, and jump on the platforms that appear when you jump near 
    them, eventually you'll get to an elevator and you will switch to Clank 
    This time walk forward and glide off the edge to the area below, jump 
    the pillars to get across. Get the bridgebot to make a bridge and go 
    across it into the room and onto the elevator, wait for the bridge bot. 
    When the bridgebot is on the elevator go up and kill the chicken bots. 
    Then tell the bridgebot to make a bridge and run along him and jump as 
    soon as you go onto his head and glide down to the platform. Get the 
    bots and have the bridgebot make another bridge. Get the hammer bot, 
    make the microbots kill the MSR 1 models. Make the hammer bot break 
    boxes again. After that have the microbots enter the door ahead.
    Again with Ratchet go straight, and you'll get another wrench upgrade. 
    Then continue to the platforms and traverse them. You'll end up 
    eventually getting to walk outside the ship with the gravity boots. Go 
    and follow the path back into the ship. Do the next few platform 
    challenges and you will meet up with Clank again.
    Platinum bolt: Jump off the edge near your ship, and fly toward the 
    base, you'll see the platinum bolt and a levitator pad to get back to 
    the top.
    Go straight and climb the ladder on the left. Complete the infiltrator 
    puzzle and go inside. Use the levitator pads to get to a room to turn 
    off the force field, and a new cut scene. Go out of the room by the new 
    door opening, and look for other doors to go in. You'll find one with 
    another levitator pad, fly to the end of the path and buy the Quark 
    Action Figure. Now go to Planet Gorn.
    A19: Planet Gorn - Thugs-4-Less Fleet
    Again, no real strategy; just kill all the big ships in the level, and 
    ignore the little ships unless you need missiles, shields, or just want 
    Platinum bolt: Get to challenge 4 and fly through all the rings for a 
    platinum bolt at the finish ring.
    A20: Planet Snivelak - Thug HQ
     From the start, use your swingshot to get across the gap to the 
    Nano-tech boost: On the last swingshot, swing back and forth till you 
    get enough height to reach the nano-tech boost.
    Go through the building and swingshot across the other versa targets. 
    Use your swing shot to bring the rail down to grind on. Grind around 
    rail, till you get to the bottom, then walk up the pillar, and activate 
    the dynamos and platforms for you to jump on will move around the 
    pillar. Get to the top, now walk to the left, use your minirocket tube 
    to take out the Attack-Copters. Walk down the building and across the 
    bridge and use the boost to get across the gap. Go to the armor vendor 
    and buy the electrosteel.
    Platinum bolt: After using the boost to get near the armor vendor, look 
    to the right at the building. Glide over there and use your dynamo to 
    traverse the wall. Get to the top into the room and the platinum bolt 
    there. (After you get the mapper, the green area will not go away)
    Go next to the armor vendor behind the bridge and take out the Megacorp 
    Hover Tank v2.0's. Kill everything on the bridge, and get into the town 
    area. Take a left, and walk down this way, go all the way to the end 
    then take a right. Continue to follow this path, and take another right 
    at the end of it. Break the boxes in the center and an ambush will 
    happen. Kill the enemies and then take another right, a cut scene will 
    play and you will need to defeat the Giganto Mech.
    To defeat the mech, go to all the boosts, and launch up to a turret. 
    Shoot the mech and the satellites he shoots at you. When he starts to 
    pound his chest and come near you, exit the turret (triangle button), 
    and run to a new boost for a new turret. Continue to do that till the 
    mech is killed, it is very time consuming. After you defeat him and cut 
    scene will play, then go to Planet Smolg.
    A21: Planet Smolg - Distribution Facility
    At the start, go across the platforms on the right, to the ship, across 
    some more platforms, and through a building. Now use the levitator pad 
    to fly straight over to a big floating platform. Get to that one and 
    straight to the other levitator pad and fly to the next platform.
    Platinum bolt: On the 3rd platform, look up for a platform in the sky, 
    use the levitator pad to fly up to it, get on top of it where the 
    platinum bolt is.
    Now, fly to the 4th platform taking out some enemies. Go inside of the 
    room, and jump on the levitator pad, and fly in-between the energy 
    strings to the 5th platform. From the 5th platform, fly to the 6th, and 
    go inside the building, then fly out of the top of the building up to 
    the huge area up top. When you arrive at the top there is yet another 
    levitator pad, use it and fly over the big mountain of boxes. Land 
    after the mountain of boxes and use another levitator pad to fly to the 
    last platform. Buy the transmission from the guy, and then take the 
    translocator back to your ship.
    After that, go to the left and use the jump boost, it will launch you 
    the ship. Press the flashing button and kill the Two-headed Smolgian 
    Snappers, along with the Grulches. Follow the path up and around boxes 
    killing enemies. Eventually, you'll get to a part with a dynamo 
    activator. Use it, and the conveyor belt will activate. Stand on the 
    and jump up onto the higher boxes.
    Platinum bolt: When you get up onto the higher boxes, walk bounce up 
    them, turn to your left and jump on boxes that way. Go into the first 
    person view and look to the left for the platinum bolt, when you see 
    traverse the boxes to get it.
    On top of the higher boxes you'll see another dynamo, activate it and 
    jump into the moving platform. Traverse the rest of boxes; you'll get 
    a part with 2 dynamos; one on the left and one on the right. Activate 
    the left one, as you near the right one, activate that one. Then go 
    the door and do the electrolyzer puzzle. A cut scene will play after 
    use the elevator. Grind the rail ahead of you. It will take you to 
    another ship; go through here killing all of the enemies. Jump across 
    the platforms that seem like they will collapse. Go left and up the 
    other platforms. Complete the infiltrator puzzle and continue to go 
    through the area. Go across some more platforms around the building and 
    up another set. Press the flashing button to lower the force field, 
    after the building you will see a shiny object, grab it, it's a piece 
    the hypnomatic. After that kill the rest of the enemies and look for a 
    platform to take to you the beginning of the level. Now, go to Planet 
    A22: Planet Damosel - Allgon City
    From the start, go into the building and go into the left room, onto 
    another pad, for the last Giant Clank missions. To defeat the spaceship 
    punch it when it lands or throw bombs at it. Near the end jump on the 
    bar circling the ship and strafe back and forth on it. After you win 
    get the mapper.
    When you return to Allgon City, this time take the right path, and 
    the rails to the end.
    Tip: Use synthenoids to kill protopets on the rails.
    At the end of the rails you'll get your 2nd hypnomatic piece. Now in 
    building take the path that go straight. Kill all of the enemies and 
    climb the ladders. Use your swingshot to get across the gap. Kill all 
    the enemies here. Continue to follow the path and you'll get to a taxi, 
    which will take you to the bank.
    Platinum bolt: When you enter the bank, go to the right and freeze the 
    fountain. Grind down the ice and you'll get to a platinum bolt.
    After that, wall bounce up the wall to get into the bank, and then kill 
    all of the enemies. Go to the left and go up, then take a left into the 
    new area. Go past the Megacorp pyramid, and kill all the enemies in the 
    upcoming area to get the door to open. After that continue to follow 
    path, and ride the elevator up. Kill all the enemies in this area now, 
    and freeze the water ahead of you to get up. Talk to the guy with a 
    sock. You'll need to last hypnomatic part from Planet Grelbin. Ride the 
    taxi to your ship and go to Planet Grelbin.
    After getting the hypnomatic piece off of Grelbin, return to the sock 
    guy; have him make the hypnomatic for you. Control the receiver bot and 
    make him touch the flashing button at the end of the path.
    Platinum bolt: Go back to the Megacorp pyramid and use the hypnomatic 
    the receiver bot on the top. Make him fall off and blow a hole in the 
    wall by pressing the triangle button.
    A23: Planet Grelbin - Tundor Wastes
    Go down the bridge thing, over to the rotating rocks, continue to go to 
    the purple rock on the ground and a cut scene will play. Go into the 
    wasteland and collect 9 moon stones for the Mystic and he will move the 
    rock, make sure to kill the Arctic Leviathans for more moonstones. 
    that go into the door you just got open, and go into the mine. Use the 
    glider to get through the cave. When you get to the end of it you'll 
    have to get through the rest of it. Go through the door, then turn 
    and walk to the northwest and press the flashing button. Go into the 
    center of the next room and press another flashing button, and go back 
    outside in the next room. Do the infiltrator puzzle, to open the door 
    and all of the bridges to be able to collect 16 moonstones for the last 
    hypnomatic piece. After collecting 16 moonstone pieces trade them for 
    the hypnomatic piece and go to Planet Damosel.
    Platinum bolt: After the glider course, after turning right into the 
    next room, look at the right wall for a receiver bot. Use the 
    hypnomatic, and have the receiver bot go into the room on the left, on 
    the top of a hill there is a flashing button, press it. The door will 
    open, and then climb the stairs; at the top there is a platinum bolt.
    Platinum bolt: This platinum bolt is in the wastes, look on your map 
    2 parallel lines, its right in the center of them.
    When returning with the hypnomatic, from the start, go right and down 
    into the building. Use your hypnomatic on the receiver bot, control the 
    receiver bot, and press the circle button to control other receiver 
    bots. Continue to do this until you press a flashing button. Then as 
    Ratchet climb the floating platforms to the top. Use the hypnomatic on 
    another receiver bot, make the bot jump onto the platform and take it 
    down. Again, continue to control bots till you press a flashing button. 
    Now, swim through the area you use opened up. Go back out of the 
    building. Walk up to the door (after killing the protopets for 
    experience) and a cut scene will play, and you get coordinates for your 
    final planet.
    Tip: Collect moonstones to sell to the Mystic for 3000 bolts each.
    A24: Planet Yeedil - Protopet Factory
    Platinum bolt: Grind the right bridge rail to the top, there is a 
    platinum bolt up there.
    From the start, go across the bridge. Turn right and use the hypnomatic 
    on the receiver bot. Then use that receiver bot to control another one 
    right across from you on the left. Kill the protopets and turn right 
    control another bot. Then just continuously control bots, and press 
    flashing buttons and follow a path. Soon, you will press a flashing 
    button that will make 2 swingshot targets appear. Swingshot across them 
    and kill all of the enemies. A door on the left will open, follow that 
    and control another bot, kill all of the enemies and door ahead of you 
    will open, go in and press the button. In the room you just came from 
    and door will open with a translocator. Use the translocator, and go to 
    the new spot. There are only a few tricky spots. Kill all of the 
    enemies, and you will get to an infiltrator puzzle soon. Another one of 
    them are the moving floating platforms, you just have to wait for the 
    right time to jump to the next. Another is the dynamo fan; again, it's 
    just a matter of timing. You'll get to a part with 2 tanks, kill both 
    them and a swingshot target will appear. Swing shot over, and walk to 
    the right. Fill up on ammo from the vendor, and turn around and do the 
    electrolyzer puzzle. After that, jump on the platform near you and it 
    will take you to the other side of the room. In the room coming up kill 
    all the enemies.
    Platinum bolt: In the room you just entered use your tractor beam on 
    of the columns, it will move, then traverse that spot, and grind the 
    rail all the way around and get your last platinum bolt.
    After killing all of the enemies go, and use your swingshot to lower 
    bridge, kill the enemies that will warp in, then just walk straight up 
    to the door ahead. A cut scene will play, and then after that you'll be 
    fighting the last boss, The Mutant Protopet.
    This boss is not that difficult as long as you have upgraded the 
    minirocket tube and the lava gun, and have bought all of their mods. 
    the meteor gun and lock-on to the protopet (press R2 then L2 and hold 
    them down) fire away and by the time the ammo has run out in it, its 
    life should be more than halfway down. After that use the megarocket 
    cannon, and do the same thing. Soon, you will beat him.
