Mark of the ninja is an upcoming 2D stealth-platformer developed by Klei Entertainment, the creators of Shank. Players take on the role of a ninja, lurking in the shadows and dispatching foes using a variety of tactics.

Step 1 (first play through):
While playing through the campaign you will most likely unlock most of the achievements naturally. If you miss any of the collectables or any of the medals you can go back and replay the levels so you don't have to worry about missing any of the achievements.

Step 2 (second play through):
The second step with this game is after you have completed it is to go back and complete it once more in New Game + to get the "true ninja" achievement.

Step 3 (Mop up):
Like I have said before you can go back and play the level over and over again. Such things points for medals and certain objects (seals) in each level will change. So as soon as a level starts you will want to press starts so you know the points that you want to aim for and the other objects such as i.e destroy 20 lights in level 2.

Final (Tips)
How points are awarded and deducted.

Stealth assassination - 400
Peasants kill - 200
Artifact recovered - 500
Power disabled - 200
Distraction - 150
Undetected - 200
Imperfect kill - 200
Guard Terrorized - 300
Body Hidden - 250
Lock picked - 250
Detection - -800

Throw the body of one guard to terrorize another.

I got this achievement and The Worst Allies achievement and also the Unstable footing achievement in the same spot. In chapter 2 whenever you have to reach the top of the tower, Don't kill or alert any of the gaurds until you get on the second floor kill one of the gaurds on the right there will be a door. Drag the body outside and let it drop off the edge (first drop down yourself to make sure that the guard is standing there). There will be a guard underneath you, once you drop the body you will hear him scream and that will be him terrorize and then he will start shooting all around him hopefully killing another guard or falling to his death.

This is an image of where to drop the body from whenever you kill the guard.

Easier solution. Credit CyberEvil
Just grab a body, drag it near a guard, and throw the body into their cone of vision with X. Just make sure your ninja is facing the direction you want to throw, since it's a bit backwards in this game.

Great start, thanks! The Mrs is downloading this game for me as we speak. Cannot wait to get home from work this evening to play it :D

I put this in the other Achievement Guide (I really think both of you jumped the gun on putting up guides, but whatever), but your methods of achieving Things Better Left Unseen are needlessly complicated and you both seem to do it the same way. Just grab a body, drag it near a guard, and throw the body into their cone of vision with X. Just make sure your ninja is facing the direction you want to throw, since it's a bit backwards in this game.
