Achievement Guide

Chameleon Collector - 50
Find all chameleons in the game.

There are 3 stories in the game and each story contains 4 levels. Each individual level contains 3 Chameleons for a total 12 per story and 36 throughout the course of the game. They show up on-screen while completing the courses and are slightly faded but the majority of them are easily spotted.

If you are having trouble a guide to all their locations can be found HERE. It is important to note that you have to complete the level to save your progress. Don't just grab an item and quit out or the item you picked up will NOT register.

Most Recent Ultimate Lizards - 25
Find all twelve chameleons in the "Dr. Blowhole!?" story.

See "Chameleon Collector".

Dolphin Trainer - 15
Earn a Silver Peanut Butter Winkie on every level in the "Dr. Blowhole!?" story.

See "Treasure Hunter".

Dolphin Domination - 30
Earn a Gold Peanut Butter Winkie on every level in the "Dr. Blowhole!?" story.

See "Treasure Hunter".

Operation Complete - 80
Complete all levels in The Penguins of Madagascar.

Story related and cannot be missed.

Operation Super Complete - 120
Complete all levels in The Penguins of Madagascar on Hard.

You can change the difficulty of the game from the options on the main menu. There is only easy and hard and the only difference I could tell is that your awesomeness meter depletes faster and you don't have as much time to perform the "actions". Other than that it is a breeze to play through.

You can tell which levels you have completed on hard by going into the mission select screen, choosing a story and then selecting a level. If you see a gold star on the top left of the level icon then you completed that level on hard. If you do everything else first, the run through on hard only takes a little under 2 hours if you skip all the scenes.

If you want to knock this out in one playthrough, exit the game on level 1 and change the difficulty right away. This will make getting the action achievements a little harder though but only marginally. To do this hold your left arm out at a 45 degree angle and pause the game. Select Exit Level and say Yes to return to the Lair. Go into options and change the difficulty to Hard and return to the menu. Now go into mission select and select the first level and you're good to go.

Dr. Blowhole!? -50
Complete all levels in the "Dr. Blowhole!?" story.

Story related and cannot be missed. This unlocks upon completing levels 9, 10, 11 and 12.

Crystal Staff of the Lemurkhamen - 50
Complete all levels in the "Crystal Staff of the Lemurkhamen" story.

Story related and cannot be missed. Simply play through the first 4 levels to unlock this achievement.

Revenge of the Robo-Penguins - 50
Complete all levels in the "Revenge of the Robo-Penguins" story.

Story related and cannot be missed. Simply play through the levels 5, 6, 7 and 8 to unlock this achievement.

Archaeologist - 15
Earn a Silver Peanut Butter Winkie on every level in the "Crystal Staff of the Lemurkhamen" story.

See "Treasure Hunter".

Robot Wrangler - 30
Earn a Gold Peanut Butter Winkie on every level in the "Revenge of the Robo-Penguins" story.

See "Treasure Hunter".

Mecha Chameleons - 25
Find all twelve chameleons in the "Revenge of the Robo-Penguins" story.

See "Chameleon Collector".

Robotologist - 15
Earn a Silver Peanut Butter Winkie on every level in the "Revenge of the Robo-Penguins" story.

See "Treasure Hunter".

Treasure Hunter - 30
Earn a Gold Peanut Butter Winkie on every level in the "Crystal Staff of the Lemurkhamen" story.

These achievements are based on how well you perform during the level. You increase your score by getting snow cones, destroying objects, performing the "actions" quickly and finding the hidden chameleons. You get silver almost automatically and then just need a few more points to reach gold. There was little effort involved. I got gold on the first try for every level throughout the game except for level 12. That was the only level that I needed to replay for a better score.
  • "Treasure Hunter" is unlocked after getting all Golds on levels 1 through 4.
  • "Robot Wrangler" is unlocked after getting all Golds on levels 5 through 8.
  • "Dolphin Domination" is unlocked after getting all Golds on levels 9 through 12.
The Lizards of Lemurkhamen - 25

Find all twelve chameleons in the "Crystal Staff of the Lemurkhamen" story.

See "Chameleon Collector".

Having a Blast - 15
Get perfect on a Rico Explosive.

During the third level, you will come across the first opportunity to toss an explosive. Simple perform an arm motion like you are throwing a bowling ball and the achievement unlocks. Again, as with the other mini "actions" do the motion quickly to get the "Perfect". You should be able to do this easily during this first opportunity as it repeats the movement a few times.

Monkey Business - 15
Get perfect on a Monkey Match.

Monkey match requires you to align pictures by moving your arms and pointing to them. On the very first opportunity (which happens on level 3) you only have to match two items. Match the squirrel to the acorn and then match the other 2 remaining pictures and the achievement unlocks.
