Achievement Guide
 
My apologies to Snapdragon. Two of the achievements' guides were directly copied and pasted word for word and it slipped my mind to either change them or give him credit. Also, I used Prowlerdante and Outinthedark's guides for reference with a handful of achievements. I have updated a few of the achievements since,

5:gsicon:
Defeat 5 enemies in a single Rocket Burst or Drill attack

Can be done easily on the first level on hard. At the beginning of the level, dodge the first wolf and jump up past the second wolf, so he doesn't turn around and fall into the pit (He'll get stuck and not be able to jump back over if done incorrectly). Lead them further until you get to the first grenade wolf. Try to get them bunched up, then do a jump and drill (double-tap B) through them all. The achievement should pop up if you hit at least five. An easier method is, at the end of the level, the last wave of enemies should be five wolves, and it should be easy to take them all out.

Defeat 3 enemies with a single reflected projectile.

At the end of the first level on hard, you can kill all five wolves in the last wave by deflecting a TNT thrown by the dynamite wolf

Completed 1.2 having defeated all enemies

You might not be able to die for this one, but I don't think that has been confirmed. Basically just mash X when you see enemies, and charge it when you get breaks. MINES COUNT AS ENEMIES TOO! I find charged blasts to be effective against them. And be careful near the end, there is one flying guy you need to take out with mines, so you need to have decent reaction speed.

http://www.trueachievements.com/imag...600/270604.jpg Nimble Knight 10:gsicon:
Completed 3.2 without taking damage

This is by far the hardest of the three achievements. be careful not to boost into enemies unless you're sure you won't take damage from it. Use your Y attack on the purple guys, and try to get behind armor pigs and melee them. The big robots need to be killed by being hit in the cockpit. The hardest thing though is avoiding all the traps and obstacles in the level. Unless you are insanely good and/or lucky, you will need to practice these and memorize how the puzzles work.

http://www.trueachievements.com/imag...500/270588.jpg Wolf Connoisseur 10:gsicon:
Completed 2.1 having collected all pickups

This is just an annoying achievement, but not really too hard. It's just annoying if you miss a gem or two and don't get the achievement. Yes, you need to get all the pickups AND all the gems. There are a few easy to miss ones though. Feel free to take your time and use the right stick camera aim to your advantage.

Near the beginning, there are two red gems and a continue on top of a big pole. you have to spin (hold B button, no thumbstick) on the nearby metal rail, and then jump, and rocket boost diagonally (up-right) and press A at your maximum height to give you more distance so you can get on top of the wooden pole thingy.

There's a part later with buildings. Get all the gems inside the buildings, and then go back out and use the spin technique on the rails to get up to the roof and get the gems. The next building is quite straight-forward to do. On the last building, do a diagonal drill attack (up-left, B,B) to break the destructible board, then do a normal diagonal boost from the same spot to get up and get the gems.

At the parts with the flying bomb wolves, be sure to get all the gems at the bottom of the pits and the top boards.

There's a part later in the level that's similar, but it's actually not possible to reach the extra life. Instead, go into the next room, collect all the gems, then unblock the conveyor belt by (breaking a machine? if I remember correctly). Once you get on the roof, go left and collect all the powerups and gems on the left roof, and drop down and get the extra life.

After you get to the part where hang-gliding enemies show up, there's one red gem over a small wooden platform that has a small heart. It's just off the screen and easy to miss (use the right stick to aim the camera).
A few of the rails also have hidden gems way up off the camera. Do a spin and boost up to get them.

Completed Arcade Mode on Hard within 60 minutes

Use the same methods as in Impatient Hero. For the easier levels, strive for a much better time than the par times so you'll have more time on the harder levels (the par times add up to about 80-something minutes). Be sure that if you die on one of the world bosses, restart so you get your life back. Also be sure to use the "special techniques" on the three world bosses. See "Devotindos Defiler" for more info.

http://www.trueachievements.com/imag...700/270734.jpg Spark Dog Millionaire 15:gsicon:
Completed Arcade Mode scoring 1,000,000 or more

Would be very hard to do on easy, since there is a lack of enemies. Easiest done on Golden Sparkster, since gems are worth more. On flying levels, use mines to rack up your combos, in all levels, use gems to get combos. They're usually placed in a speed-run-able way.

http://www.trueachievements.com/imag...600/270620.jpg Impatient Hero 20:gsicon:
Completed all stages below par time

Be sure to skip as many enemies and power-ups as you can, and use your rocket pack boost lots to skip by the level faster. Practice a level lots if you have trouble on it, especially boss fights and the later levels with tons of obstacles, puzzles and temporary platform switches.

For flying levels, you need to mostly just try not to die, or not die far from checkpoints. Except for boss fights and parts where you need to destroy something, you'll be going at a set speed through the level.

Par Times
1.1 - 6:00
1.2 - 5:30
1.3 - 7:00
1.4 - 3:00
2.1 - 7:30
2.2 - 4:30
2.3 - 7:30
2.4 - 3:30
3.1 - 8:30
3.2 - 9:00
3.3 - 4:30
4.1 - 4:30
4.2 - 8:00
4.3 - 5:00

http://www.trueachievements.com/imag...800/270814.jpg Legendary Possum 20:gsicon:
Completed Gold Sparkster Mode

Gold Sparkster mode is pretty much another difficulty setting unlocked upon completion of arcade mode on the hard setting. You get half the amount of health and gems give you more points.

http://www.trueachievements.com/imag...600/270619.jpg Devotindos Defiler 25:gsicon:
Completed Arcade Mode on Hard in a Single Playthrough

The big (or only) difference between normal and hard is that there are more enemies. But, to unlock the entire arcade mode on hard, you must use each boss' special technique against them (can be done on normal). Be sure that if you die on one of the world bosses, restart so you get your life back.

World 1 boss (Forest Shredder): Wait on the second platform until he does his grenade attack. Jump soon after he launches them, and slash one back in his face.

World 2 boss (The Wolf King): Go up a floor and wait on one of the cracked floors. Wait till he gets on it with you, get hit, and then drill the ground while he's busy laughing at you. He should fall down, and you should hear a confirmation sound.

World 3 boss (Axel Gear): You have to try and make the boss hit himself with his purple homing orb move. Jump over it and try to go really close to Axel by drill-attacking. Hopefully the orb will bump into him.

http://www.trueachievements.com/imag...500/270552.jpg Elhorn Tourist 30:gsicon:
Completed all stages

Not very hard. Just play through each level of the game. If you do arcade mode, you will get both achievements. If you make it to say, the last level and lose, and you beat it in free play, this achievement will still unlock.

http://www.trueachievements.com/imag...500/270553.jpg Zephyrus Saviour 35:gsicon:
Completed Arcade Mode on Normal

Same as above, just play in arcade mode on normal and don't lose all your continues or you'll have to start all over again. Be careful of enemies, practice the later levels and all the bosses, and if you die too much in a level, restart so you don't waste too many lives. Be sure that if you die on one of the world bosses, restart so you get your life back.

Plagiarism isn't cool. :mad::mad::mad:

I wouldn't have minded so much if you'd at least given me credit.

I don't see anything looking exactly the same, were they edited to fix this?

SnapDragon 05-14-2010 08:19 PM

The descriptions of the first two boss "special techniques" are word-for-word identical. The rest of it has been reworded slightly but is still clearly copied (on 2.1 he lists the same "missable items" I do and in the same order).

xtreme2252 05-14-2010 11:30 PM

i used that as a reference and worded it to suit my own experiences with the game, such as with the speed-running and the achievements that didn't have very in-depth guides. For the par times, there really isn't much to it, so yeah, I did copy and past those, and I did use the same pictures. The boss special techniques were also copied too, because I haven't beaten the game on hard yet and I had no clue about the special techniques until I read the guide for the achievement. The reason I even stumbled across that guide was because I was looking for how to unlock Golden Sparkster mode. So yeah, half of these achievements have been derived from guides from Prowlerdante, Outinthedark and Snapdragon. I figured some people would be too lazy to Google any guides, so I might as well post one here. And this guide is really just bare bones right now, when I play through the game more times I'll make a more detailed guide

This would explain how I screwed up the achievement last night, thanks to the both of you.

Who cares if it's original or not? A guide is as valuable as the next guide as long as the information is accurate. And this seems to be in order.

The original content authors - like me - care, if their work is passed off as someone else's.

Thanks for adding the note, xtreme. I'm happy now. And nice guide. :)

You're welcome, and thanks.

I need to start playing this game again.

P.S. : Sonic pwned Tails in that comic.

The difficulity rating in this guide is bollocks. This game is ridiculously difficult to beat on normal, let alone on gold sparkster. Probably the most difficult platformer I've played for years. Getting all of the trophies on Rayman Origins is a cake walk compared to this. 10/10 difficulity; 11/10 if that's possible.
