Rare Replay Walkthrough

24. Snapshot Playlists

Snapshots Playlists

Welcome to the Snapshot Playlists! There are a total of 6 playlists, each containing 5 snapshots with a running theme from the Rare Replay collection. In each playlist you have 3 retries, with an achievement for completing a playlist without having to use any of them. If you fail the first snapshot, always remember to start the playlist over again instead of continuing with less than the optimum amount of retires. Before you start a certain snapshot, you can also press cn_X to look at the controls for a quick reminder. I will go through the playlists in order from left to right, starting with Escape Artist.

Escape Artist

  1. No Wand Left Behind - Atic Atac: From where you start, head up twice and down the hole in the floor. From here, head right once then up once to another hole in the floor. From where you land, head right all the way to the end, then up once to the room with the exit. Pick up food along the way if you need it! There are two in this bottom area.
  2. Going Under - Sabre Wulf: From where you start, there is only one way to go all the way to an area with 5 exits. In this opening, head down the bottom exit, then down the bottom left exit along the yellow wall. Go left one more time, past the cave entrance, to the next area where you want to head down. Follow this path until you get to an area with a cave up above you, head into this to find the exit! If you pick up the cyan flower, this makes you both invincible and fast. Using this you can usually run all the way to the exit, unless you're unlucky like I was in the video and picked up a yellow nullifying flower straight after!
  3. Slippery Toad - Battletoads: Just before the platform you're on hits the floor jump to the left. A good note for this area is the longer you hold cn_B for, the higher you jump. For most of this next section you only want to do little jumps or you will hit the ceiling. Run left and jump over the the next platform. The wall here will bounce up when the tortoise shell hits it, so just keep running left until you make it under. Wait on this right hand side, and jump over the shell to the left when it comes back. Run left into this second wall, and jump just before the shell hits you to avoid the shell and then quickly make your way under it. Jump up here to find more of the same, just to the right this time. After passing that section, there is another orange platform that will fall down as you stand on it. Jump to the right just before hitting the floor to a safe platform, then run right to finish this level.
  4. Dramatic Exit - Snake Rattle N Roll: Using the D-pad is the best option here. As you jump, don't watch yourself but watch your shadow to see where you ar3e and where you will land. The 30 seconds it gives you is plenty of time, so the biggest obstacle here is simply getting to the end alive. Try to stay as 'up' as possible as well, that way if you do hit water you have the tiny extra bit of saving grace. Make sure you carefully fall off the end, it is possible to miss the exit!
  5. Untouchable - Digger T. Rock: As soon as you start, head up to the top. From here, you want to head right past two cavemen until you fall down over a ledge. From here head left, falling only twice. At the edge of this platform, place a ladder. At the bottom of the ladder, place another one, and repeat until you have put three joining ladders. Fall from the bottom one, then just head right to the exit. There may be a caveman in this last little bit to look out for!

Crowning Jewels

  1. Mint Condition - Solar Jetman: Remember you use cn_X to boost! You need to head all the way to the left, until the only direction is up. The drop-off point is up here, this may take you a few tries so if you fail remember to back out and start the playlist again to have the maximum amount of retries.
  2. Jewelling Sabres - Underwurlde: From the start, walk right until your character stops. Jump here to bounce off the wall and onto the bubble spawn, then ride a bubble up to a jewel. A bit of luck is involved here, but it isn't too hard.
  3. Diamond Geezer - Knight Lore: Head into the bottom left doorway, and in this room climb the stairs to pick up the first jewel. Head back to the first room, and drop off the gem at the foot of the tower. Jump onto it and over to the second jewel, then head back and pick up the one you dropped before. Now head into the bottom right room, then back out again. Head into it again to find the jewel now on the floor, go pick it up to be done with this snspshot.
  4. Rock Solid - Digger T. Rock: From the start, dig straight down and right. Stand on the pressure switch, then run and jump right over the slope to get gem #1. Crawl and dig right from here, making sure not to bump the top boulder, to get gem #2. From here, head back to the slope (If you accidentally go through the teleporter it doesn't matter, just make sure if you go past the exit door you jump over it as going through it finishes the level). Head under the slope to the left, where you will find gem #3. From here just make your way back right to the exit and you're done.
  5. Highway To The Cyberzone - Solar Jetman: I'm not even sure you can fail this, just fly around the level to collect all 10 jewels.

Relay Racing

  1. Just A Minute - Jetpac: Not hard, but there is definitely urgency. Collect and drop off the two parts of your ship, then the six pieces of fuel as fast as you can. Remember that you fall much faster than the items do, so try be lower down as you hover over the ship to minimize wait time.
  2. All Your Basement - Atic Atac: Pick up all but the blue keys, then head into every room at least once. In the top right room, go through the secret passage to get into the top left room without the blue key. Use the following map to plan a route, this isn't timed so there isn't much urgency about it (Just don't die!).
    Image 1
  3. Pothole Plugging - Lunar Jetman: Easy snapshot, drive right until you come up to a pothole. Get out, grab a trestle from the vehicle and drop it into the hole. Get back into your vehicle, then rinse and repeat! There isn't a time limit you can see, but after a rather long amount of time the base will shoot a missle at you, so don't muck around too much.
  4. Fuel Crisis - Solar Jetman: You must get all three fuel canisters the the base that is up above where you spawn, within 90 seconds. If you're about to hit a wall, use cn_up to put up a shield to save yourself wasting fuel. Make sure to take it down again to pick up a fuel canister. Remember to boost with cn_X!
  5. Ammo Amass - R.C. PRO AM: Ignore the actual race, and just collect every star you come across as you do a lap. There is some mild urgency, but it isn't hard.

Collect-A-Thon

This playlist, along with the next one Blast Score, are the easiest two playlists to get the achievement to complete a playlist without using any retries.

  1. Make It Rain - Gunfright: I find it easiest here to just slide left and right along the bottom, shooting the money bags as they fall into your sights. You will be aimin to get 35 in the 45 seconds.
  2. Podcasting - Cobra Triangle: Hit the ramps to jump up and collect the red diamonds, these are power-ups. The map cycles around itself, so in the 30 seconds you have you will probably end up going around at least twice. You need to collect at least 5.
  3. A Quick Buck - R.C. PRO-AM II: At the start let your opponents get a little ahead of you, then shoot into them to make them drop money bags. Collect as many as you can on the ground as well, you have 60 seconds to collect at least 5.
  4. Sea Snakes - Snake Rattle N Roll: Here you need to eat 5 fish in 60 seconds, I found ignoring the black ones and just going for the coloured ones to be the easiest. Remember to jump to swim!
  5. Boulder Tactics - Digger T. Rock: Collect the first two and stop for a second to let a boulder fall down in front of you. After it has landed, climb over it to get the treasure past it, then turn back around to get on top of it. Jump to the left for the fourth piece.

After completing this playlist you will unlock the following achievement;

3 guidesOffline Game Mode - These achievements require play in game modes that do not necessitate a connection to any online services.Single Player - These achievements can be obtained by a single player.Collectable - These achievements are obtained by exploring the game environment to find a set of unique objects.

Blast Score

  1. Rover The Moon - Lunar Jetman: Quite easy, just head left and right shooting everything that flies by. You can obtain a score way above what you need for this.
  2. Smashing Performance - Battletoads: Kill the first two enemies, then head right to find a third. After killing these three you're done!
  3. Rapid-fire Rapids - Cobra Triangle: As you a pushed down the rapids here, you need to hit as many of the targets on the side as you can, and in order as well. At the turns there are rockets that you can hit that will give you homing rockets for a few seconds, these give you good boosts. Just before you hit the finish line, make sure you're pushing either left or right to gain a few thousand extra score (Recording the following video I scored 4000 from this end bonus, when you only need 5000 to win it makes it easy!).
  4. Score Adder - Snake Rattle N Roll: In front of you at the start is a tongue extension, pick this up. Eat the jumping checkers piece here, then continue in this direction over the way to find another tongue extension. Picking this up will give you the final score you need, make sure you don't stay in the water for too long however as the shark will eat you!
  5. High Scare Challenge - Digger T. Rock: From the start, run right and crawl through the cave to be greeted by a skeleton standing on a ledge. Stand just at its feet, and each time you kill it it will instantly respawn. You don't need to go down to the second one doing this, I could easily score the points needed in half the time just farming this one.

After completing this playlist you will unlock the following achievement;

Precious Seconds

  1. Last Man Swimming - Cobra Triangle: Move into the middle of the pool, and shoot while spinning to kill everything. Make sure to aim for any boats that pick up your swimmer, and if possible hit the rocket ships before they fire. The other method, is to let your swimmer get picked up then kill the enemy before he gets off with him. Then, pick up the swimmer and circle around the outside until the time is up, this method is easy to win with but requires a bit of luck to get started.
  2. Rash's Last Stand - Battletoads Arcade: Move to the left and wait for the cannon to get a bit closer, then use your special attack (cn_B) to take it out. Shoot the next things that attack you normally or use another special attack to take most of them out, by the time these are over you will pretty much be done with this snapshot. Continue onward or suicide your toad from here.
  3. Glutton For Punishment - Atic Atac: At full health you will last 50 seconds, and health pick ups give you an extra 20. Immediately go down into the next room, and survive in here until you have less than 30 seconds of health left, then pick up the health. Then head left three times, to find another room with a health pick-up. Again only pick it up if you have less than 30 seconds of health left, and this should be plenty of time to finish the snapshot.
  4. What's Krakken? - Cobra Triangle: At the very start, make sure you don't run into the squid. What you want to do here, is move between the top right and bottom left corners of the map as the tentacles are trying to get you. You can move into the bottom right corner as well, but as you will see in the video you run the risk of getting jammed between the bottom of the map and the squid's motionless tentacles. You have to survive here for 30 seconds.
  5. Turbo Infinite Tunnel - Battletoads: I would advise you practice this before you try this playlist, as this snapshot requires it. If you have done it before, especially the whole tunnel, you shouldn't find these 45 seconds hard. Regardless, remember to not move after hitting the ramps, and that moving right then left after jumping makes the jumps go by faster.
