my theory on achoeving "the perfect run"
 
So start up story mode and after everycheck point back out to the menu and enter practice mode. So you can practice the upcoming level until you have familiarized yourself with it enough to continue your story playthrough. Hopefully backing out won't stop the achievement from unlocking. :) goodluck.

That's why airplane mode what invented. Ha. The same thing would happen to me in endless when random achiements would unlock and lag my phone for that split second to slam me into a wall and get blasted. >.<
I haven't been able to make it to level 10 in one go yet. :/

I got close today, made it to checkpoint 28 and died. But it seems in my mind the more I play the game play slows down. I dont want to touch endless mode unitl I get perfect run completed.

WOW dude you are awesome for getting to checkpoint 28 without dying.

Furthest I can get is 12 :(

Please let us know if your theory works. Just from reading the description i understand it as you have to beat the entire story without pause, quiting or dieing. hopefully i'm wrong. i can get 20checkpoints everytime but then i just die right after haha

Whoooo!!! Got the perfect run achieve this morning in story mode, and Im glad I wont have to do that again. I just kept playing until I remembered most of the checkpoints which really did make things easier. Then it just comes down to timing and for me not double tapping the screen randomly and dying.

Firstly, MASSIVE CONGRATULATIONS!!! That really is one hell of an achievement... literally!!! Secondly... did it unlock Rescue Run? What is it like?

Again, very well done! Closest I have got is four deaths, and that on practice mode! :]

Thanks Ooyah.

Nearing the last few checkpoints I was getting nervous, but luckly was able to finish without dying. Also rescue mode did not unlock, so I would suggest going for perfect run in practice. Until today I could complete the game in 1-3 deaths so your really close. Just keep at it, and Im sure you'll get it.

Thanks man, I will keep trying! Ironically, I can usually do the last three of four levels without dying! But, if I do die early, I keep going for practice. I need to practice 21 - 26 more... and then just hope for a run without slowdown!

Disappointing to hear about Rescue Run not unlocking... God only knows what they expect us to do, unless this is glitched? 100,000 in Endless? Something in multiplayer? No idea now.

i got to 25 without dying and i got to say the last 7 levels or so are the hardest.

diploMATT666 10-25-2011 10:13 PM

I'm down to 1-2 deaths per run. My method is to do practice in 3 blocks of ten levels, focusing on the end parts of each. Good luck everyone who tries this. It'll have you flipping gravity yourself in frustration. :)

This is probably the hardest game I have ever played. I generally have a really good reaction time in games but I just find this insanely impossible. I sometimes die in the same spot 10, 15, 20 times. Anyone who has done it is either an Ninja or live in a different speed of time then everyone else.

XBOX ISAAC82 01-07-2012 04:36 PM

How many slowdowns do you think it would take to get through the game from beginning to end? It's 160MS points for five. One slowdown seems to last about 2 gates so we're looking at 15 for the entire run through so probably about 480MS total. Although would the pause to buy more slowdowns affect getting the perfect run achievement.

jpace731 02-16-2012 07:20 PM

Damn I can't get to 10 without dying lol. I did just get the game though. This looks like it's going to be a tough one

Johnoralex 02-20-2012 03:25 AM

I just completed Gravity Guy and I wanted to come here and give encouragement by saying that this is possible! I only used one slowdown which was for the last checkpoint (talking about rescue chapter). Also for those of you who need more slowdowns you can uninstall the game and reinstall it and that will give you your original 3 slowdowns back. You do have to finish rescue chapter again if you reinstall it though and it resets your high scores. Good Luck!!!

F Swan 01-22-2013 06:04 PM

I finished Gravity Guy the weekend just gone, I agree with Johnoralex that save a slowdown for the last checkpoint of Rescue.
That part goes so fast, you have a 50/50 chance of making that part imo.
But only use it on the actual final stretch with you go up and down super fast.

Also I used to get quite shaky towards the end of the level, so when you get to the part with its loads of little blocks going up and down (where you can't actually fall off) is to pause the game, leave it a minute or so till you can calm down and focus more. Then continue.
Its quite close to the end and you don't want to choke because of miss pressing the screen from panic.

Also because of a lack of practice mode, if theres a particular section you struggle on. Reach the area and purposely die before the next checkpoint so you can at least practice it over and over.

Good luck with it, it can be done :)
