Introduction:
Welcome to Half-Minute-Hero Super Mega Neo Climax, a real fast paced RPG. This game is actually a re-release of a PSP title, but with polished graphics and some extra stages added in the end. You are on a quest to defeat Evil Lords who discovered a spell to end the world after 30 seconds has passed. Lucky for you have a greedy Goddes of Time as companion who turns back time for a fee.

#1 Hero 30, Evil Lord 30, Princess 30 and Knight 30
You will spent most of the time in Hero 30 as it is the main mode of the game. You have to acquire all pieces of equipment, earn 2 titles per quest by completing varying deeds and ally with several NPCs who help you in defeating the Evil Lords. Once you are done with Hero 30 you should have the following achievements:
- First Praying
- Warrior of the Goddess
- Kind Hero
- Charisma Hero
- Equipment Collector
- Title Master
- Multi Ending Master
- Hero 30

To unlock Hero 300 and Hero 3 you have to clear the small interlude quests with 3 other characters. These quests don't have equipment you need to buy nor titles to gain and are relatively short.

#2 Hero 300 normal and hard, Hero 3
Hero 300 is almost like Hero 30, but the quest is at a larger scale with 300 seconds and you can't turn back time. Once you've beaten that follow it up with hard mode which is exactly the same, but time doesn't stop in villages and other safe zones. Finally you get to Hero 3 with 3 seconds to defeat the Evil Lord, but you can turn back time and the map is tiny. Check the videos in the guide for help. Beating each mode nets you an achievement.

#3 Multiplayer
You have to win 30 Multiplayer matches, but these can be boosted in player match and shouldn't take longer than 1,5h for both to unlock the achievement.

#4 Mop up
If you are still missing an achievement, check the the correspondive section in the guide and should get the 200http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.jpg without a problem.

#Conclusion
Half-Minute Hero is a fun game if the gameplay works for you and offers a good amount of content to play through with not so hard achievements.

Prayed to the Goddess for the first time in single player mode.

You can unlock this after the first quest aka the tutorial level in which you make the pact with the Goddess of Time. Just earn 100 gold to spend, travel to the next town and go to her statue. Now press :ybut: and you are done.

Offered a total of 3000G to the Goddess in a quest in single player mode.

Basicly you could do this in more or less every quest, but I'd do it in the quest "Caves and Forests" if you are in a hurry for this achievement. Do 1 Battle, buy the Horse from the first town, kill more enemies while dashing, buy everything concerning equipment and don't forget to reset the time. Now clear the cave and then get the Bug Swatter from the Tent in the SW of the map. Farm enough gold for the goddess in the woods as you need 3600 in total since the last donation is 800gold. Once you offered her enough, you receive this pretty achievement.

Cleared "Cursed Hero" without defeating Sasha.

Sasha is a poor little girl in quest 30 in Hero 30 mode. If you want to let her "live" follow these steps:

1) Talk to her in the very first village you'll come across, she'll run away north.
2) In the swamp located up north, save her from the monsters attacking her.
3) Go back to the first village and talk to her.
4) Meet her up again at the bridge located south of the northern village.
5) Go to the Evil Lord castle and defeat him.
6) Head back to the northern village and celebrate your victory with Sasha.
7) Follow her to the stone monument located north of the map.
8) Meet her again in the forest clearing with the sword between the two villages.
9) Promise her you'll always be friends, no matter what (don't be a jerk :p )
10) Destroy the stone monument up north.
11) Then, in the southern village, you'll be attacked by zombies. Kill them all BUT the very last one, flee to avoid hitting her but stay in the fight screen. After a few seconds, youll have a touching scene, and the true power of the sword will awaken.
12) Go fight the Evil Lord(again), who shouldn't be much of a challenge now. Achievement will unlock at the result screen.

Allied with all available NPCs.

You can ally with 15 different NPCs in the game. To check which ally you missed you can check the progress on the world map for each quest. You actually have to ally with them only once for this achievement, so if you meet them again in other quests you aren't bound to ally with them again unless it is needed for a title. If you got the ally in the quest you see an "OK" and two schematic figures next to each other at the bottom of the table.

Here is a list with all NPCs and the quest you can find them:
Yohei : Quest 3 "Lord Hadears" : Get the diamond from the south cave, and give it the Yohei in the first town.
Cecilia : Quest 5 "Fire Starter" : Deafeat Larrie in the north cave, then go back to the forest village and recruit Cecilia.
Richard : Quest 6-N "Through The Forest". Recruit him in the first town for 300G.
Barbara : Quest 8-N "Infinite Desert". Recruit her in the second town, south of the map, for 250G.
Donovan : Quest 11 "Bandit Valley". He's in the cave north of the village, prove to him you're the strongest by defeating him and his bandits.
Elena : Quest 14-L "Nun and The Devil" : She's in the northern village, get the Dranium from the west of the village to recruit her. To get to the Dranium, answer "No, Yes, Yes" in the cave when asked for a path.
Hank : Quest 14-S "Battle OCean". He's in the southern village on the first island, agree to kill the monsters in the pirate's hideout and he'll join.
Dain : Quest 15-N "Mummy Desert". After the castle has appeared by praying at the eastern and south-western monuments, go back to the second village and recruit Dain.
Rex : Quest 15-S "Lizardman Nation". He's in one of the tents north of the map, save him from the lizardmen.
Natalie : Quest 16-N "Flower In The Dusk". Get the flower from the marsh at dusk (sparkling dot), then use it to woo Natalie in the first village.
Karen : Quest 17-S "To The Snowy Country". At the first branch in the path, head in the east cave and follow the way right to where Karen is kept prisoner. Defeat everyone to have her join you.
Sebastian : Quest 22-N 'Giant Evil Lord". Sebastian is waiting on the path between the second village and the Evil Lord's Castle, you can't miss him.
Slowpoke : Quest 24-S "Golem Valley". Retrieve the screw from the crater located on the north-western part of the map. Then go to the cave north of the village and use the screw on the pedestal. Slowpoke will activate.
Scorpio : Quest 25-S "Treasure Land". Scorpio is trapped in the middle-left cave in the desert, help him and he'll join.
Catherine : Quest 25-N "Swamp And Witch" : Go to the witch hut, located northwest, 1 step south and 5 steps west from the dead tree. She'll join instantly.

Got all available equipment in single player mode.

You can buy equipment in quests, receive them through sidequests and after you've beaten a quest. To check whether you've bought everything in quest, go to the world map and look if the row below the two titles displays "OK" with a green shield and crossed Swords.

Received every title.

You need only the titles in Hero 30 for this achievement. There are two titles per quest and also for Hero 300 and Hero 3. However the once in Hero 300 are achievements itself and the second title in Hero 3 doesn't matter. Often the quests require more than one attempt to get them both. To check if you've got both titles per quest, go to the world map and if the titles are white coloured you've unlocked them. Otherwise they appear in grey.

Cleared Hero 30.

Hero 30 is the first difficulty and consists of X quests. Once you've beaten all of them you unlock Hero 300 and this achievement.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/1922/5-5mNZk=.jpg (http://www.xbox360achievements.org/game/half-minute-hero-super-mega-neo-climax/achievement/53931-Multi-Ending-Master.html)Multi Ending Master (http://www.xbox360achievements.org/game/half-minute-hero-super-mega-neo-climax/achievement/53931-Multi-Ending-Master.html) - 10 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.png
Reached every ending in Hero 30.

You can reach 6 different endings depending what actions you take during your epic journey. Here are the conditions for each of the endings.

1) Don't defeat Cully in the cave in Quest 9 "Change the Current"
2) Take the Land branch in Quest 12 "Road to Land and Sea" and proceed to Quest 18 "Grail and Evil Lord". There beat the Undead Queen without a grail and you will be thrown back to the menu, which countss as ending.
3) From quest 12 this time take the Ocean branch and proceed to Quest 16 "Treasure Island". Now find and take the pirate treasure. Then go to the Evil Lord and after the cutscene decide to keep the treasure.
4) From quest 12 again take the Land branch and proceed to quest 14 "Nun and Devil". Take the Devil branch and proceed to quest 17 "Ancient Riches". Start it and simply don't find enough treasure to pay the Goddess.
5) In quest 21 "Floodgate Panic" take the Beach branch to Quest 22 "The Have-Nots" and side with Mo.
6) Clear Hero 30 - Beat the final quest "Last Battle" and you get the default ending.

Cleared Hero 300.

Hero 300 is a mode in which you have to finish one large quest without beeing able to reset time. It is essentially to choose carefully what to buy and what not. In order to unlock it you have to finish Hero 30 followed by the small interludes of Evil Lord 30, Princess 30 and Knight 30. This video shows a playthrough of Hero 300 and will net you the achievement if you reproduce the steps taken since the original game on PSP and this re-release are identical.
http://http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=poxK0X8nyrw
Once you've beaten it you unlock Hero 300 hard and this achievement.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/1922/+cXuVQ==.jpg (http://www.xbox360achievements.org/game/half-minute-hero-super-mega-neo-climax/achievement/53924-Hard-Hero.html)Hard Hero (http://www.xbox360achievements.org/game/half-minute-hero-super-mega-neo-climax/achievement/53924-Hard-Hero.html) - 15 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.png
Cleared Hero 300 in Hard Mode.

Switch to Hard mode and beat Hero 300 again to obtain this achievement. However this time the timer doesn't stop in towns and other safe spots. To safe time in the end, once you fight the first incarnation of the Overlord, try to finish her with lowest health possible to save time to be KO'ed. However here is a video showing how to pull this off with enough time.

Cleared Hero 3.

Hero 3 is like Hero 300, but you only have a very small map and a 3 second interval to save the world. Here is a video how you can beat this mode. You can find a step-by-step guide in description of the video itself.

Became 30 times the True Hero in multiplayer mode.

Multiplayer is kind of cooperative and competitive in the end. Once the timer reaches 0 all Heroes die, so you have to help yourself and the others while going for better gear faster than the rest and kill the evil lord in the end. You can boost this with a friend, if you don't know anyone who would be willing to help look here (http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/showthread.php?t=318080) for help.

You do not need to recruit everyone in Quest 20 - "Great Plains" for the cheevo. Also, I got the achievement way before the final battle, so recruiting everyone during the final quest isn't required either.

Quick question: for the multi ending master achievement can you do them all in the same playthrough? or do you need to make various playthroughs?

The only thing that happens when you reach an ending is that you're kicked back to the main menu. Then, you can still select whichever quest you've unlocked. So, only one playthrough required (thank God).

Jyrakos : thanks, I'll add that. Wasn't sure, since I hired Barbara in both missions, and unlocked the achievement with Sebastian.

I can confirm this. I got the achievement after Scorpio. Just get the characters in their respective levels. I didn't hire Barb a second time, but I did recruit all the people in the plains at one point (just to knock the recruit sticker out).

Nice guide, needs abit more detail although I see it's coming

don't expect a guide to be complete in a one day or two. For a retail game i usually need a week or two and arcade...well it is pretty much finished now even though i hate writing roadmaps and this will take a while before i feel up to it ;) however roadmaps aren't so important in the beginning imo.

For multiending master please can you clarify; do you need to do each level prior to the level you get the ending on? I.e. '4) From quest 12 again take the Land branch and proceed to quest 14 "Nun and Devil". Take the Devil branch and proceed to quest 17 "Ancient Riches". Start it and simply don't find enough treasure to pay the Goddess.'

Can I just go ahead and do the steps on level 17 or do I have to play 12,13,14,15,16 &17 in a row?

Thanks

to take that example, if you just made your way to quest 17 ancient riches(since there are two quest with the nr 17) you can just do it there or specificly not find two treasures to pay the goddess to get rid of the curse, but for everyone else who play along the guide i wrote these directions to find the quest with ease. i'd like this more than just writing

ending x: quest x do that and finish the stage

hope that helps

Just missing the online achievement now...

I would say the time it takes to 200 this is around 15hrs, give or take a few.

Overall difficulty i would say 4.

It was rather simple once you get the hang of it, and the psp title guide helps a lot. The "exclusive" xbox stages are rather small and short and the titles are simple to get.

The other modes are very easily done with the videos provided here and you can even cut 6 seconds from the 3-sec hero one.

Yes thank you - very helpful! I'm pretty sure I already unlocked all the routes/levels so I'll be going for all the endings tonight ;)

Thanks again / good helpful guide

cra, awesome guide as usual. This is probably a little self-serving, but I genuinely feel my Hero 3 walkthrough video is of better quality than the one you have up. EDIT: There's also a step-by-step walkthrough in the description.

EDIT 2: Thanks.

It's also the correct version of the game...

To be fair, there's virtually no difference between the versions of Half Minute Hero for the basic levels (aside from the removal of "Another Goddess" and insert of the hidden storyline/items/heros for those few levels), and I can confirm Hero 3 is the absolutely the same in both versions.

Not really my point.

My video has better audio quality, explains the process by which to most easily complete the mode, and uses the Neo graphical mode, which in my opinion is cleaner and clearer to the eyes. I neglected to turn the playlog off, and if that's a problem, I can re-record it.


Furthermore, if we're splitting hairs about the two games being identical, the enemies you face in Hero 3 are different. For example, instead of Scorpions, you fight Snakes.


Anyway if cra doesn't use it, then it doesn't get used. I just thought it'd look and sound better my way.

i'll have a look at your video later and check for myself if the playlog is an issue or not. and all the vids in the guide aren't obviously not my vids, but the best i could find on youtube.

if you want to do new vids for hero 300(hard) i'd use them, since i understand that the new graphics makes it easier to watch and reproduce

edit: maybe i'm blind but i've seen the shadow only once or twice, so i'll use this vid instead of the PSP version one.

Great start cra. I was looking at the PSP guide to the tiltles, and although it seems perfectly clear what to do, some of them refuse to unlock. A solid list with good descriptions needed.

I'll chip in with #2 on Level 1, "Forgotten": As soon as you're outside the castle without the timer, before meeting the Time Godess for the first time, head straight right and onto the boat/canoe and hit A. You'll get a Herb and this title when the level is done.

(I can't unlock #1 "Straying" ....guide says to let the timer run out three times, then finish)

I am not certain which part of this method makes it work, but it ought to.

Attempt to defeat the evil lord the first time you're able to enter his castle. (Before you meet the Goddess) Then, continue to fight outside until the timer runs out the three times.
Finish the level as usual.

Question: So do victories in Player Match count towards the Victory 30 achievement? If so, someone wanna help me boost?

I know Princess 30 and Evil Lord 30 modes aren't related to actual achievements, but you still need to do them to get to Hero 3 and Hero 300 modes. And I'm stuck on Princess 30 for some reason. So does anyone have guides for those 2 missions?

Thanks

evil lord: walk south, take fortress 1, walk west take fortress 2. return home and return time. dash south, take fortress 3 and the town next to it. heal, buy herb return time. accept sidequest, dash north to cave, back to town and return time. proceed southeast to evil lord and kill him


princess:
go to the eastern village, talk to guys with ! above heads. dash to western town and accept the kill quests there. now you see two sparkling spots, one above the lake south of the castle and another in the southeastern part of the forest. get the one at the lake first and return to castle, if time runs low return it in a village. go into forest, get the herb and kill 5 moles, dash to western town, upgrade crossbow/return time/heal etc and go to castle. now back to western village and find out that you need a dragon scale. if you find a screw once you enter the mountain area, dash east to the cave there and get slowpoke(yay) and then kill 5 rock monster and upgrade crossbow again. now kill "dragon" in the western cave and return time/heal if needed between the fights. with the scale back to castle, then return time and dash north for endboss.

hope this quick walkthrough helps :)

@bunnehrabbit
yes player match boosting works for online victories and this is NOT the achievement trading thread. please post there if you need boost partners

Okay, so for Multi Ending Master can I do step one then play the last level to get the ending? or does that step mean a new ending for that level?

i don't get what you mean with steps. there are 6 possible endings and i tried to list the in order you can get them. however you can do them in any order it pleases you.

basicly all endings except for the one beating the final battle, show you a cutscene in which the hero will not pursue the evil lords anymore and you end up back in the main menu. if you mean something different please post again.

My mistake, I though by "ending" that meant to the overall game. Now I understand that these endings, are just premature ending scenarios.

I have a quick question about the Avatar awards and gamerpics. If you beat levels under 30seconds after the 3rd quest you can unlock and they go:

1 quest = 1st avatar award
5 quests = 1st gamerpic
10 quests = 2nd avatar award
15 quests = 2nd gamerpic

I was just wondering if anybody knows if there is anything else like for instance 20 quests in under 30seconds. I doubt there is but just curious.
