Introduction:

Welcome to my Achievement Guide & Road Map to achieving 200:gsicon: on Tentacles.
The game is currently priced at £3.99 / $4.99

Please enjoy the guide and I hope this helps you complete the game.
There is no copyright on this guide but if you do re-post elsewhere please credit me. =D

Special Thanks to - Press Play for creating this hardcore original game, Xbox360Achievements for hosting this guide and DeviousD for finding the level to unlock the Limbo achievement.

Step 1: Play Through The Story

Work your way through the story and familiarise yourself with the levels, do not worry too much about getting all three stars before you progress to the next level.

Finish the story 1st before mopping up the challenges as your probably going to be replaying the levels quite a bit once you finish the story.

You can skip cut-scenes by pressing the back button on your phone.

Step 2: Complete Each Level 3 Stars.

After playing through the story you should have picked up around a 1/3 to 1/2 or the stars, now to complete the rest.

You can use level select to replay any level you wish.

You do not have to complete all stars in one play of a level, you can replay the level and work on one star at a time.
(i.e. You can get 1st star finish the level, replay the level again and get the 2nd star, replay the level again and get the 3rd star.)

1st star = Complete the level collecting every pick-up which are orbs dotted around the level.
(Including orbs from killing enemies.)

2nd star = Complete the level without dying.
(You can take a damage and eating eyeballs gives you some health back, cannot get this on easy mode.)

3rd star = Complete the damage or speed challenge and then complete the level.

This will unlock if you have completed all three stars at the end of the level.

Complete a level without collecting any pickups at all

22nd Level - Complete the level without any orb pick-ups including orb drops from killing enemies so do not eat any eyeballs.

There are no orbs until you reach the damage challenge which starts when you pass through the green coloured arch.

Use all 3 legs to grip the bottom boulder then once you pass the first set of orbs switch to the top boulder with all 3 legs. Repeat this sequence again and you will reach the end of the challenge. (:ddown::dup::ddown::dup:)

Do not worry about taking damage from the plants you will make it through the challenge section without dying as long as you have taken no damage up to the point where the challenge starts.

Now grip the next boulder to take you over the large plant and ignore the eyeball, there is a small ledge once you pass the eyeball so grip onto this. The eyeball may kill you if it doesnt dont worry the first plant will, you need to die to respawn with enough health to get through the next section.

From the ledge grab the top boulder with all 3 legs and ride it past the first set of orbs then switch to the bottom boulder and ride it until it end. It is tricky switching correctly to the bottom boulder because if you are not low enough you will pick up some orbs and have to start the level again. (:dup::ddown:)

Now you must make it through the rest of the level without killing any ememies, you will die alot doing this but keep at it and you will reach the end of the level.

For the stepping stones section move past the eyesballs quickly, this may take a few tries.

For the bubble section take your time, the eyes are static and will not chase you. Move across the stepping stones slowly and position yourself on the very edge of the stepping stone before switching to the next one to avoid hitting the eyeballs.

Move past the spinning saws to the end of the level to unlock.

Credit to DeviousD for the level find.

Take over the duodenum

Level 33 – At the end of the level you face your 5th boss the Duodenum which is harder version of the 1st boss Mama Amygdala.

The Duodenum has three eyes which you cannot eat until you have killed the Turtlepoodle variant, be careful when eating her eyes as she will crush you if you don't move out of the way quickly.

Kill the 1st Turtlepoodle variant and the Duodenum will lift up so you can eat one of its eyes, move to the side and eat one of its eyes.

The Duodenum will cover its remaining two eyes and release two Turtlepoodle variants, kill these and the Duodenum will lift up so you can eat one of its eyes, move to the side and eat one of its eyes.

The Duodenum will cover its remaining eye and release three Turtlepoodle variants, kill these and the Duodenum will lift up so you can eat its last eye, move to the side and eat its last eye to unlock.

Every time you eat a big eye he will knock you back and you will have to dodge incoming projectiles from his small eyes again.

Repeat until you have eaten all four of his big eyes to unlock.

Complete all levels without dying

Complete each level without dying, all 40 levels. You can take damage but do not die, your screen will flash red round the border and your eye will go dark when you are about to die from your next hit or two.
(Eating eye-balls will gain you back a small amount of health.)

Take your time and memorise the levels, you may be replaying these alot especially the last 10 levels.

Take a break if your getting frustrated and come back later or you may throw your phone aross the room.

I would recommend playing the levels backwards, start at level 40 and work your way backwards.

If you can nail the last 10 levels without dying you will have no problems with the rest of the game.

Limbo achievement on level 22 not sure if its the easiest way but what I did was to stay on the moving boulder on the opposite side to the orbs and keep switching boulders you will take some damage from the Green Bush things but not enough to kill you.

Thanks DeviousD, I've written up a detailed guide to Limbo and credited you for the level find. Cheers

Level 36 is causing me real pain any tips maybe I'm missing something?

Level 36 walkthrough

The first part when you reach the rolling green ball you need to get this right 1st time or they start to bunch up and it gets even harder, if you fail restart. You just need to flip up past them.

When you reach the poppers, use all three legs, once it pops tap all three legs onto the next popper and repeat. Your timing needs to spot on or you will fall backwards, once it pops use three legs.

Challenge, make your way through you need to switch up and down fast on the exploders. If you lose your grip let yourself float which will take you through the section.

Teeth section, you need to grip onto the top and step over the purple moving spikes. Sounds easier than it is.

Grip the popper and when it bursts ride the current and grab the ledge, work you way round until you can see the next popper. Get right to the edge of the ledge and use all three legs and kill the eye flower. Ride the current to the next section and kill all the enemies to open the door and the end of the level.

I too had Pickup Truck unlock early. I finally managed to complete the game, and decided that I would go for the Limbo achievement using Devious' suggestion of level 22. I took a test run of the level, collecting about five orbs on the way, and it popped at the end of the level.

It must be a positive glitch if you unlocked very similar to the way I did.

I've updated guide and credited you for confirmation. Cheers

Is Limbo possible on any other levels? I'm not going to be able to do the part that comes after the Damage Challenge. Also, I hate this game. I think so mate, all the other levels you cant avoid the pick-ups.

Just completed the game 200/200 last night. My advice for level 40 without dying is when you get to final boss, just rush in and dont try to avoid what he shoots at you.
You will regain your health after you eat a couple of eyes, just repeat 4x. If you rush in fast enough you will only get hit twice, but you can survive at least 4 -5 hits.

Level 40 walkthrough without dying.

Stop at the 1st electricity and go the bottom path onto the floating ledge wait until the electric passes then move past to the next electric pads.

Wait until the first electic pad stops then step over the pads quickly.

Move through the electric lines in a zig zag motion waiting at each point for the electricity to stop.

Move quickly through the next section following the electricity but not too quick or you will hit the electric.

The next section you need to move quick and eat the eye-ball flowers, there are caves you can hide until the projectiles pass once they do move to the next cave. Do this until you get to the projectile eye-balls.

Now you will be at the challenge, move slowly along the top of the screen and walk over the electric pads one the first one stops and onto the poppers. You need to walk over the poppers quickly then grip the ledge at the end.

The next section is tough, take you time and get you legs positioned correctly to walk between the spinning saws. Grap the moving platform with three legs and ride it up, this is a short trip and you need to grap the ledge fast being careful not to hit the small spinning saw.

Your going to get pulled right from the ledge to move to the top ledge past the spinning saw and back over to the challenge arch.

Use three legs to grip the ledge and walk down, you will get pulled by the current off the ledge, ride the current past the spinning saws and grab the wall at the end.

Eat all the eye-balls to get your health back up to max and now onto the boss.

Note you can take 6 hits from projectiles before dying on the 7th on max health.

Wait at the end and watch the projectiles, once you get the rhythm down move in a zip zag past the projectiles to the boss, you can take a few hits but be fast and get close enough to eat some small eyes. I took out all but one of the small eyes to get my health up to max and stop them firing projectiles. Now eat a big eye and you will be blasted backwards.

Repeat this for the 4 big eyes, you need to move fast and make sure you eat enough small eyes to get you health back to max before eating a big eye.

can someone please confirm for me, that you don't have to get 3 stars all at once, you can replay the level and work on one star at a time?

i thought i had to 3 star every level in a single attempt Confirmed Dude

You do not have to complete all stars in one play of a level, you can replay the level and work on one star at a time.
(i.e. You can get 1st star finish the level, replay the level again and get the 2nd star, replay the level again and get the 3rd star.)

Great guide so far dude some of the later levels are hard think I'll be playing this for some time.

Just manged to get the Limbo achievement on level 22 not sure if its the easiest way but what I did was to stay on the moving boulder on the opposite side to the orbs and keep switching boulders you will take some damage from the Green Bush things but not enough to kill you.

First, great guide. Really well written.

Also... Slay Away. I got this on level 13. Start the level, go past the electric things, and the, er, big swirly vortex thing. Keep going... you will come to a solitary eye flower. Kill it, keep going, past some spikes. You will come to a more open area, where there are three eye flowers. That's six eyes, and you only need five. May take a few attempts, as the positioning can be tricky, but it can be done here. I haven't reached level 19 yet, and so am not sure if this is easier or not, but it is an option.

Thanks Ooyah

I remember that level and thought it should have unlocked at that point but it didnt, maybe I was not fast enough. If others confirm that this is the level they unlocked Slay Away I will change the guide around and credit you. Cheers

Well I have completed level 19 now, and your suggestion is a lot easier! *lol* Only benefit of level 13 is that the achievement can be obtained a bit sooner, but other than that, I think that I would go with level 19 too.

Level 36 is causing me real pain any tips maybe I'm missing something?

Oh man. :( I almost ripped my hair out on level 33. If 36 is harder than that, I'm in trouble. Very hard game indeed. The 200 gs on this one will not be easy.

Gutted to hear that you lost your save. :( WP7 games seem to have a real problem with this. Will you try again?

Also, I too had Pickup Truck unlock early. I finally managed to complete the game, and decided that I would go for the Limbo achievement using Devious' suggestion of level 22. I took a test run of the level, collecting about five orbs on the way, and it popped at the end of the level.

I am nowhere near having all of the collectable stars. Looks like a big glitch. Yip, did it happen to you on the first level you replayed after completing the game? I am wondering if that is when it happens for everybody, as that is what happened for me.

And Devious, great call on level 22 for Limbo... works a treat.

I was beginning to think that everybody had given up on this game! Forums went quite for a while. How are you doing? I am getting my head kicked in by this game, to be honest. 33 and 36 seem to be nemesis levels for me, but I am struggling on many others too.

Yip, Devious... you blokes still out there on this one?

Damn, sorry to hear that, really strange that so many games are plagued by this. Do you reckon Mango might help somehow?

07-27-2011, 04:44 PM
Not sure. But at this point even if it did I won't play that game anymore. It just takes waaaaay too long to do. Took me about 4/5 wks to get too that level.

Ooyah
07-28-2011, 12:02 PM
Thanks Ooyah - Yeah I'm going to keep at it hopefully they patch it, if it happens again I may lose my patience as well as my save game.

I've update the guide on pick-up truck, it must be a positive glitch if you unlocked very similar to the way I did.

Yeah dude still here nothing new to add yet, working back through it after save loss, got back to level 20 today all 3 stars.

Did you read my walkthrough above for level 36 dude it may help.

I dont think many people think there is a forum for this game as the links dont work and it takes an age to find the forum scrolling through, I've reported it but it still isnt fixed a week on. If anyone knows a mod let them know. Thanks.

For Pickup Truck, I am assuming that it will still be necessary to get all of those stars anyway in order for Napoleon to unlock. I am going to try for all of the challenges stars first. Only on 23 so far!

Fingers crossed for your save file benig okay this time!

Geezer, let me tell you, it was only because of your walkthrough that I completed level 36 in the first place!!! :) I was misunderstanding what to do with the poppers section. I was just hacking away at the screen. not realising the importance of using all three legs in that way, and of the impact of momentum. So cheers for that! But I am still unsure about doing the whole level without dying! I will try.

Very unusual with the forum link, but I am sure that a noble mod will do the honours soon.

can someone please confirm for me, that you don't have to get 3 stars all at once, you can replay the level and work on one star at a time?

i thought i had to 3 star every level in a single attempt

Beware: I tried to 3 star each level before i'd advance to the next level. I got to level 40 (all 39 levels 3 starred), completed it without getting 3 stars, 2 achievements unlocked (tentaculous & eye candy).. i then replayed the level a few times, then got all 3 stars in one attempt.. 3 achievements unlocked (when i say jump, napoleon, mr immortal).. Pickup Truck did NOT unlock.. i tried to replay the first few levels, it still won't pop.. beware this achievement can glitch in a bad way too :(

Hopefully this can be resolved as I had nothing but great things to say about the game. Was a nice completion, until this bullshit...

Who can I contact about this?

UPDATE:
I restarted my phone, replayed the first level only getting a star for all gold & no deaths, and i intentionally failed the challenge. Pickup Truck thankfully unlocked for me. Hopefully this helps if anyone else encounters the same glitch as me. I reached out to Press Play and the developer responded almost immediately. I HIGHLY recommend purchasing this game, it is brilliant. Many thanks to Press Play for the excellent customer service too. Hopefully there is a sequel!!

Super fun game. I was waiting for DOTW because I have heard it gets way too hard on the last few levels. I wonder how many have actually 200/200 this game. two? Hopefully they do a tentacles 2 and the difficulty is scaled down a bit

I nearly died of laughter when I saw the 9/10 difficulty rating for this game. I just finished the 200 earlier today, and have to say that this game was fun and moderately challenging....5/10 MAX.

Here you are again in all your gaming glory bashing the difficulty level on some guides. What a shocker! :)
