Slip Slidin' - 15
Get perfect on a Belly Slide.

Once you see the Belly Slide side just immediately duck down to get this with ease. The first opportunity comes during level 3 and you have multiple opportunities if you don't get it on your first try.

Mad Knowledge - 10
Get perfect on a Trivia challenge.

If you did not change the difficulty at the beginning, the first trivia challenge is quite easy. Just answer "OK" and the achievement unlocks.

If you get some other random question you can still get a perfect score by simply making a guess. If you guess right you win. There are a couple of trivia questions throughout the game so you are bound to get this automatically.

Leapin' Lizards! - 15
Get perfect on a Jump.

During the third level you will reach a scripted section where you have to jump. You will see a sign and the screen floor will be green. Just jump straight up to unlock this achievement.

Penguins Can Fly! - 20
Get perfect on a Hang Time.

The first opportunity to get this occurs on level 5. Just hold hold both arms out and jump as soon as you are prompted on screen. Like all the "actions", the faster you do it will determine your score. Do the motion before the timer moves to far and it will unlock instantly.

Take Your Best Shot - 10
Play the first Rico Target Challenge.

Story related and cannot be missed. You will come to his first target challenge while playing through the first level. You just have to play it and the achievement unlocks instantly.

Trivia Dabbler - 10
Played Marlene's Trivia.

Story related and cannot be missed. You will come to the first trivia challenge while playing through the first level. You just have to play it and the achievement unlocks instantly.

Hacker Supreme - 20
Get perfect on a Head Maze.

The first opportunity to get this occurs on level 5. For the maze games, you need to pickup and move the top of the semiconductor to the bottom half without touching any of the lines. This is easily done on the first attempt because there are no lines in your way and you have a straight shot for an easy achievement.

Poser - 20
Get perfect on a Strike A Pose.

The first opportunity to get this occurs on level 5. Just hold a jumping jack pose (extend arms and legs out to make and "X") as soon as you are prompted on screen. Like all the "actions", the faster you do it will determine your score. Do the motion before the timer moves to far and it will unlock instantly.

Blast Off - 20
Get perfect on Rico's Launch.

The first opportunity to get this occurs on level 5. Just push both arms up as prompted on screen and like all the "actions", the faster you do it will determine your score. Do the motion before the timer moves to far and it will unlock.

Feeling Jumpy? - 10
Jump (non-challenge) ten times in one level.

During the course of playing through any level, simply jump straight up and your penguin will follow suit. Just do it 9 more times in the same level and the achievement is yours. This can be done as early as the first level if you like.

Perfection - 30
Get perfect on every challenge in a level.

This means that you have to get the "Perfect" rating (or equivalent) on every "action" challenge. You may get this naturally while you play through the game. The end of level result screen is slightly misleading. Instead of saying "Perfect" on the result screen, they should have called it "Completed" because it only tracks the number of events you completed which is not the same as getting perfect.

Basically every time you get to an action event, it puts up the icon on the right side of the screen and under that icon is a green bar that slowly shrinks. First make sure you are on easy as that will decrease the speed the bar shrinks. Now just complete the action before that green bar moves too much and you will get credit for a perfect. I think (although there is no way I can be sure) that as long as the word that pops up is blue, you get credit for the perfect. So Perfect, Excellent, Awesome, etc... count. I know Alright, So-So, Pretty Good, Nice, OK and Flubbed do NOT count.

If you do not get this through regular play to make this quick and easy, I'd recommend putting the game on Easy and then playing level 2. There are only 3 challenges in this level and they are easy motions to complete. You have a climb event, a throw event and a balance event. Just keep replaying until you get all blue comments.

Show Me How To Do That - 50
Get the awesomeness meter to x5 for 20 seconds.

Once you max out your awesomeness meter, just continue through the level collecting snow cones and other items. The achievement pops immediately once you have reached the required amount of time. It unlocked for me during the first level without any effort.
