Hints

Knack's Quest Mobile App Hints & TipsReport

The iOS/Android match-three game “Knack’s Quest,” a tie-in to the PS4 game Knack, can help you unlock new Gadget parts for the main game. Just make sure that you sign into your PSN account at the start of Knack’s Quest.

Every time you complete three levels of a stage, the next stage will be unlocked. You can replay levels as often as you want until you have enough points to unlock its Gadget. If you select the crate icon, which is located near the bottom of the screen, you will be able to see which Gadgets you’ve unlocked and how many remain for each Collection.

To get a lot of points in a level, try to make multiple matches with a single move and keep a combo going for as long as you can. You can use powers by filling up your combo meter, although the earlier powers are not as effective as the last one. Once the meter fills up entirely, you can choose any type of tile to clear from the board.

Every match you make adds more time to the clock, so don’t delay. Try to plan out your next moves in advance and make them even as your previous combo is in progress. Just don’t rush and risk losing your combo.

Eventually, you will reach the much harder Stealth levels, which feature glass tiles that you must remove by making matches with adjacent tiles. Do not plan out large matches in these levels, but instead work to use smaller matches to clear away the glass tiles.

Once you complete every stage in the game, you will unlock Endless mode, where you try to get the highest score possible within the time limit.


Get the Crystals You Want/NeedReport

Follow the steps below to easily get the crystals you want.

  1. Start playing a chapter and open a chest.
  2. If the chest contains the crystal you want, take it. If it doesn’t, do not press X.
  3. Instead, hold down the PS button. You can restart the game at the beginning of the chapter, and the chest will be closed again.
  4. Open it and repeat the steps above as many times as you need to until the chest contains what you want.

Get the Barrage TrophyReport

Follow the steps below to easily get the “Barrage” trophy.

  • You can accomplish this in Chapter 10-2. Near the end, you will encounter eight Ogers. Make sure your Super Move is fully powered up before the fight. If it isn’t, allow Knack to die so you can destroy the sunstones again.
  • Once you enter the fight with a fully powered Super Move, use it. It should kill all eight Ogers, which will earn you the trophy.
  • If it doesn’t kill all eight, let Knack die so you can attempt the fight again.

Co-op / Robo Knack AsssistanceReport

When you play co-op mode, a second player can help out as Robo Knack. As Robo Knack, you can press the triangle button to restore Knack’s health. Co-op is a good way to let a beginning gamer try the game.


Attacking EnemiesReport

If you are in a difficult situation, use your special attacks. You have many powers at your disposal, and they will be very helpful against enemies.

Jump, press the button to attack, and then spin toward the enemy. This combination will make a lot of fights much easier.


Dodging AttacksReport

You will need to dodge enemy attacks by using the right analog stick. Try to master dodging, as it is an important skill.


Sunstones and Other ItemsReport

Collect items, especially sunstones. Smash every sunstone you pass to absorb its energy, and make sure you have enough energy to face bosses with.


Secret Areas and Hidden ItemsReport

Always keep an eye out for signs that something is hidden nearby, such as cracks in walls. If you spot something that looks different, see if you can find a secret area or a hidden item.


Time Attack Mode HintsReport

In Time Attack Mode, your goal is to finish the stage as fast as you can. Each of the 13 stages is based on part of the main campaign. Time is the major contributor to your score, but you also can get bonus points depending on how you play. For example, if you use your super moves, you will earn bonus points. Plan out your moves to earn as many points as possible.


Coliseum Attack Mode HintsReport

In Coliseum Attack Mode, you can pick from one of three arenas, and then you will face 10 waves of enemies. There are multiple challenges—the first of which is just to survive all 10 waves. After that, you will be challenged to make it through the waves quickly, and then to make it through them without letting the enemies damage you at all.

Unlockables

Time Attack ModeReport

When you finish the main campaign, you will unlock Time Attack Mode.


Vampire KnackReport

You can unlock Vampire Knack for a future playthrough by collecting 15 Ruby Relics. Ruby Relics give Knack stronger attacks, but there is a price to pay.


Coliseum Attack ModeReport

When you finish the main campaign, you will unlock Coliseum Attack Mode.


Massive KnackReport

You can unlock Massive Knack by collecting Emerald Relics. Massive Knack is even more powerful than Vampire Knack, but he can only store enough energy for one super move at a time.


Brittle KnackReport

You can unlock Brittle Knack by collecting Aquamarine Relics. Brittle Knack is even more powerful than Vampire Knack, but when enemies hit him, he breaks into pieces.


Sunstone KnackReport

You can unlock Sunstone Knack by collecting Sunstone Relics. When Sunstone Knack defeats enemies, they leave behind energy he can collect. Therefore, his super move gauge fills up quickly. His super moves are also more powerful and last longer. However, he has lower defense than other forms.


Dark KnackReport

You can unlock Dark Knack by collecting 20 Amethyst Relics. Dark Knack’s defense is twice as strong as any other character, but he also needs twice as many sunstones to be able to use a super move.


Diamond KnackReport

You can unlock Diamond Knack by collecting 10 Diamond Relics. Diamond Relics are very rare, and Diamond Knack is the most powerful character in the game. His attacks and super moves are stronger and his super move gauge fills up faster.


Using Unlockable CharactersReport

Any of the unlockable characters can be used in subsequent playthroughs, as well as in Time Attack Mode and Coliseum Attack Mode.
