Finally, travel to the cliff’s edge in the Gongaga Hills region after you’re done with the combats. Zack will hear a sound coming from the Waterfall and he will go near it to check. This region has the Waterfall Chaser Trophy and it will be acquired after the mini-game.

The mini-game will start when Zack sees a chest come down the waterfall. The game will ask you whether you want to wait to see if other chests will follow. Select this option to launch the Waterfall Chaser mini-game!

What To Do In The Mini-Game

You must gather all 10 chests that fall in order to get the trophy. However, You’ll freeze, if you come into touch with one of the falling creatures. Fortunatley, you can always play this mini-game again.

But, you will have to start again and come back into this area after defeating 7 random enemies. That is the only way to trigger it again.

Objective of the Waterfall Mini-Game

The objective of this mini-game is quite straight forward. But, we can simply put it in the following way:

  • Chests will drop from the top of the Waterfall
  • Collect all the falling chests
  • Enemies will be falling as well and will end up freezing Zack.
  • Avoid the enemies
  • If you fail to collect 10 chests, you will not get the trophy.

How to Play The Mini-Game Without Freezing

The way Zack moves is now the major challenge in this mini-game. It is quite challenging to manoeuvre Zack in small spaces. Which makes it challenging to get him to stand him in the middle of the water-stream without getting in contact with the enemy.

Let’s get you ready to play the mini-game, follow the following steps to triumph over this mini-game with ease:

  1. Positioning: Start by standing a bit away from the waterfall to get a sense of what’s coming.

  2. Sprint to Chest: Quickly sprint to the treasure chest and return to your initial position.

  3. Evade the Left Enemy: As the enemy approaches from the left, move towards the screen and out to the left after grabbing the first middle chest. This will help you dodge the enemy.

  4. Collect Left and Right Chests: After evading the left enemy, sweep back in to collect the left and right chests.

  5. Alternate Sides: To avoid the enemy, shift away from the waterfall stream either to the left or right side.

  6. Repeat: Keep repeating this process for all 10 chests, successfully avoiding the enemies.

  7. Button Mash If Needed: If Zack freezes, rapidly press the ‘X’ button (for PS players) to unfreeze him.

  8. Remember the Order: Note that the items falling from above always follow the same order, which is different from the old 2007 game.
