Toy Story 3 Walkthrough

3. Story walkthrough


Each level will be introduced with a short summary about the objectives and things to keep in mind as you play through the level. Next is a list of all achievements for the level. Common for all levels is that you need to collect ALL the collectibles in order to unlock the final collectible achievement at level 8 (some of them will come earlier, though). After this, a list of all collectibles and their location will be listed.

There are no missable achievements per say, as you can play every level as many times as you like and all collectibles you pick up will remain picked up even if you die before reaching a checkpoint. If you've missed a collectible and play the level again you don't have to complete the entire level. Once you've picked up the collectible you can press start and Exit to Game Board. The collectible will be saved as picked up. Now let us begin:

LEVEL 1: Train Rescue ( Loco Motives )

Summary: You play as Woody. This level can be split into two parts based on gameplay. In the first part you ride your horse (Bullseye) along an autoscrolling path while jumping to avoid obstacles. If you miss a collectible in this part: Kill yourself quickly or prepare yourself to play the level again. In the second part you are on a train (walking) and are free to explore at your own pace. Occasionally you will trigger events that prevents you from going back so pick up collectibles as soon as you can. This level have 23 Al's Toy Barn tokens.

LEVEL 5: Bonnie's House ( Witch Way Out )

Overview: You play as Woody. This is the most platform-intensive level in the game, but shouldn't pose much of a problem. The level can roughly be split into two section: The House and Outer Space. Common for both is that you have little or no opportunity to backtrack for collectibles, so grab them as you go. In the House you jump between platforms avoiding a sea of coffee that occasionally rises creating some stressful moments. Collectibles are more or less in your path here. In Outer Space your task is to get a rocket working by collecting batteries and putting them in their sockets. There's a lot of rail grinding here, but luckily you don't have to keep your balance. In the first battery hunt session you'll find a battery in each of the three sections designated Green, Yellow and Purple based on the rail colour. After you put the third battery in it's socket - opening the exit hatch - you should have found all collectibles by now. The rest of the level consists of rail grinding and another battery hunt session. There are 0 Al's Toy Barn tokens in this level.

LEVEL 6: Prison Break ( Hide and Sneak )

Overview: You play as Woody and Jessie. In this level Woody must rescue four of his friends who's been captured by the evil Lotso. This is a free roaming level that for the sake of collectible location, descriptions will be broken down into five areas: Jessie's Prison, Center Room, Rex's Prison, Slinky's Prison and Hamm's Prison. All areas behind the police car stationary guards will be designated as the Prison area for each prisoner respectively. To rescue a prisoner you need to disable each prisoner's alarm light by pressing a nearby button. The level ends as soon as you rescue the fourth prisoner. There are 10 Al's Toy Barn tokens in this level.

Perfect jail break: There is an achievement for rescuing all prisoners without ever tripping the alarm. This can be quite tricky, so below are a few tips. If you trip the alarm you need to exit to the Game Board and reload the level for the alarm counter to reset.

REX: Use Jessie - The trick to the rotating searchlights is to jump OVER them. Time the jump so you jump over an upcoming searchlight and then fast climb along the ledge in front of that searchlight and jump over the searchlight you have in front of you as it goes down.

SLINKY: Use Woody - The swinging part is tricky, as it seems that the controller ignores your button presses half of the time. But if you time a jump at the apogee of the swing you can reach the shelf above with only one swing. Avoiding the lamps is just a matter of timing.

LEVEL 7: Junkyard ( Trash Thrash )

Overview: In the prologue to this level you play as Buzz on a conveyor-belt. His objective is to keep the three aliens alive by grabbing them and throwing them forward until Jessie manages to open the hatch to the trash bin. Throw the aliens into the trash bin and prepare for some hard running. In the next part - the main level - you play as both Woody, Buzz and Jessie. Their objective is to save Rex, Hamm and Slinky who are trapped in a pile of junk. The problem: That pile of junk is slowly moving on a conveyor belt. Destination: Destruction. Advancing from left to right Woody & Co must stop several waste disposal machines to save their friends. To do this you must switch between the characters solving puzzles that either stops a machine or removes an obstacle that blocks the path of a fellow rescuer. As this part is more or less a puzzle there will be a complete solution for this part of the level. Collectibles are excluded from the puzzle description, but some hints are written in italic.

BUZZ 1: Make your way to the bascule (bridge).

WOODY 1: Use his Special Move on the lever - lowering the bascule - and position Woody near the steam.

BUZZ 2: Move him across the bascule, wait until it opens again and throw the compact trash block down into it's gap. Continue across the gaps and position him in front of the flamethrowers.

JESSIE 1: There's a collectible behind you. Move forward and jump across the valve. Cutscene. Jump across the block Buzz provided and up onto the platform. Jump across the gap and continue forth and jump on the valve to turn off the gas at Woody's.

WOODY 2: Wall Climb up to the red button. Press it to open the path for Jessie. Continue to the right and jump to the duct pipe. Position him just in front of the fan.

JESSIE 2: Jump across all the gaps while in the process disabling the flamethrowers blocking Buzz's path. Continue jumping via a switch that opens a hatch in Buzz's path. Keep going and position Jessie at the end of her path. BE QUICK NOW.

BUZZ 3: Jump across the gap and Wall Jump up to the platform above the hatch that Jessie just opened. Grab the two blocks and throw them at the two fans to aid Woody. Grab another block and walk into the gap and drop the block down to Jessie to make it possible for her to grab a collectible. Jump up and position Buzz by the bascule.

WOODY 3: Move across the now destroyed fan and use your Special Move on the lever.

BUZZ 4: Continue to the trash compactor. Run and dash through them. Jump up and push the blocks into the compactor on both sides to break the machine. Position Buzz to the far right of the upper platform.

JESSIE 3: Jump across the flames to the valve that opens the path to Woody. Then continue and position Jessie at the corner near her dead end.

WOODY 4: Jump down and use your Special Move over the gap. Press the button and swing back and jump up onto the ledge.

BUZZ 5: Jump across the swinging platform and press the red button. Then continue to the right and drop a block to the left side to aid Jessie. Position Buzz with the other block at the right throwing position (marked with striped color).

WOODY 5: Jump across the swinging platforms, Wall Climb and position him just in front of the gap where he is supposed to use his Special Move to swing across.

JESSIE 4: Jump up on the block Buzz provided and jump on to the ledge.

The next three steps must be executed in quick succession. No time to dawdle.

WOODY 6: Use your Special Move to activate the lever.

JESSIE 5: Jump onto the switch.

BUZZ 6: Throw the block into the machine.

If you fail, make sure Buzz is holding a new block in position before you repeat the steps from WOODY 6.
