In Astro’s Playroom, there are dozens of collectibles for players to find throughout the five main areas, including Cooling Springs.
Every new PlayStation 5 console came with a copy of Astro’s Playroom, a 3D platformer featuring the return of Astro Bot. The game is a sequel to Astro Bot Rescue Mission and serves as the tutorial for the new DualSense PlayStation 5 controllers. As Astro Bot punches, spins, jumps, and hovers, the haptic feedback of the new controller provides realistic vibrations and sensations to further immerse the player in their surroundings. Players will navigate Astro Bot through five worlds with different levels and collect coins, puzzle pieces, and artifacts. They will play traditional platforming as well as try some next-gen powerup platforming that makes use of the DualSense controller’s capabilities.

There are four puzzle pieces players can find at every level of Astro’s Playroom. These are computer-chip-themed jigsaw puzzle pieces that fit together to make up various missing parts of murals in the PlayStation Labo world. Some of these are located out in the open, while others can only be found by navigating to hidden areas within each level. There are also 28 of these to be found in the gatcha machine to the north of the PlayStation Labo world. Once players find all the puzzle pieces, they will earn the A Grand Tour Trophy. They will also earn Trophies for gathering all the collectibles from each major area. Here’s where players can find every puzzle piece in the Cooling Springs levels of Astro’s Playroom.
