To unlock the Heretic trophy in The Bridge, you must complete Chapters I to IV and cross a bridge to complete your first loop of the game. After this you will be able to enter a Mirror version of the world and there will be another four full chapters of puzzles to complete, each a twist on the non-Mirrored versions of the levels (more than just a simple mirror image).

After you have crossed the bridge and awakened the Professor once more, you will now be able to press cn_X near a wireframe white box shape to enter a Mirrored World. There is one by the tree and there is also one in the Puzzle Select corridor behind each Chapter Door. Head into the Chapter I door and if you're not already in the Mirrored World, select the wireframe box to access it.

Chapter I-I: Mirrored Loft

Rotate 3/4 of a full circle with RT (270 degrees) and allow the Professor to fall onto the ledge. Walk right and fall onto the pillar. Head left and pull LT for 180 degrees so that the Professor falls to another pillar. Drop off through the gap in the pillar to land on the centre pillar and then make your way to the door.

Chapter I-II: Mirrored Library

Pull LT to rotate the level 180 degrees. Keep walking right but rotate with LT -- you want the Professor to stay on the inner surface and end up by the door, rather than "falling" to the surface above the door. Now walk left and fall down. Walk left and rotate with LT -- at this point you should be effectively chasing the key. Eventually the key will end up on the far side of the sliding book. Now position the Professor so that he is standing on the book; the key should be resting on or near the other side of the book. Now it's just a matter of gradually sliding the book out of the way so that the Professor and the key fall into each other. Once the key is collected, head to the exit.

Chapter I-III: Mirrored Menace

There's a Wisp in here for the Collector trophy. This is a really tough one to get -- it's hard enough to finish the level -- so I've hidden the method in spoiler tags.

*** Spoiler - click to reveal ***


To complete the level from the start, walk slightly right and tweak LT to get rid of the Menace by the door which should skim past the Professor towards Fish to the left. Then you just need to get the Professor to fall towards the door in Crocodile by using LT but make sure you have reset the door upright with RT by the time he lands, so he can exit before anything hits him. Roughly you need to turn 180 degrees with LT and then backtrack by a quarter with RT as the Professor nears the door, immediately pressing cn_X when he lands and the door is upright.

Chapter I-IV: Mirrored Courtyard

There's a trophy here for catching the key in mid-air; luckily it's also a convenient way to complete the level. Head left and move LT just enough to get the Professor over the central hump in his path; we want to get the Professor to drop to the lower area under the door so tweak back with RT once he has fallen off the edge. You should then simply be able to flip the world onto its side with RT so that the Professor falls down through the bottom section of the level as the key starts to fall up. It may take some rewinding and tweaking to get their trajectories aligned (for example, you might need to walk the Professor a little bit up the curving arch in the bottom left of the world before flipping the level around). As soon as you grab the key in midair you'll get:

After that, you simply need to tilt your way back up to the door on the left side of the level.

Chapter I-V: Mirrored Spiral

This is an unusual level in some ways, as the Professor and puzzling has very little to do with it; you simply need to get the little Menace to the button without the big Menace crushing the Professor. To achieve this you need to grant the little Menace momentum to get around the spiral maze without giving the larger Menace enough momentum to "escape" the small hook that it is resting in. First off you need to get the small Menace to "escape" to the exterior part of the level simply by see-sawing with LT and RT and keeping an eye on the big Menace. Once it's on the exterior part of the map (be careful not to let it shoot off into space) you can worry less about the big Menace; the angle means that it's fairly locked in place. It becomes a threat again once the little Menace has reached the spiral containing the button. You'll need to swing again to give it enough Momentum to sail into the centre with the button. This is the toughest part as there is only a tiny window of momentum between getting the little Menace to just crest the lip of the inner wall, and the big Menace spilling out of its bounds. For reference you'll likely have to spin the little Menace almost all the way back up to the beginning of the spiral to give it enough momentum on the way back down to crest the lip of the curve in the centre. Luckily you'll only have to rewind a couple of seconds if the Professor gets crushed. Perseverance is the only key to this level. Once the little Menace is near the button, just edge the Professor towards the door and the little Menace onto the button and exit before the large Menace crushes you.

Chapter I-VI: Mirrored Nook

There's a key in a vortex and a wind-assisted Menace millimetres away from the Professor right at the start. Very gingerly shift with RT just enough to get Menace to roll up into the vortex. Now you are safe to get the Professor over to the button with LT. Now you need to ease Menace away from the key while the Vortex is shut, by shifting with LT until Menace is back where it started.

Next, tilt slowly with LT until Menace goes to the door and the Professor slides up into the vortex with the key (he'll obtain it as soon as he is sucked into the vortex). Now you just need to tip Menace over to the button with RT, which will drop the Professor from the vortex to the door.

Completing the first Mirrored World set will unlock the Heretic trophy.
