TwistOfFate619's Gamercard
Achievement Guide:

ToeJam And Earl



Word Up! Back To Outer Space! - 40
[TJ&E] Cleared a Random World.

Select "Random World" in the main menu. The object of the game is to progress from one level to the next in search of "Ship Pieces". Recovering all 10 pieces over the 25 Levels will unlock this.

Given that levels are randomly generated, there's really not much that can be said. However I do strongly recommend that new players start out with Fixed World first and take what they learn from there into a second playthrough.



Smell Ya Later, Earth! - 40
[TJ&E] Cleared the Fixed World.

Select "Fixed World" in the main menu. The objective is identitical Random World, however this time levels and present/power-up locations will always be the same in every playthrough.

Use this guide to help navigate levels:

Another very important tip that will make this playthrough considerably easier is to grab (but NOT use) the present second from the mailbox in Level 2. This is a randomizer present which will mess around with all the presents in the game and undo the progress you've made in identifying presents. I recommend taking this present to the wise "carrot" man (first appears in Level 4) and having him identify it for 2 bucks, then discarding it.



The Long Road To Funkiness - 30
[TJ&E] Obtained a rank of FUNK LORD.

Starting off as Weiner, there are a total of 8 ranks to progress through, with every third rank granting you an extra life.

Weiner - 0 points
Dufus - 40 points
Pointdexter - 100 points
Peanut - 180 points
Dude - 280 points
Bro - 400 points
Homey - 540 points
Rapmaster - 700 points
Funklord - 880 points

The key to unlocking this achievement is exploration (each map block uncovered grants 1 point) and present usage (2 points). Use your playthrough of Fixed World to explore and use any harmless presents you have rather than dropping them.

In addition, "promotion" presents can be found which can rank you up instantly (one such present appears in Level 2 of Fixed World on the narrow bridge near the Ship Piece). Save these up for one of the later ranks so as not to waste points.



The Mailbox Ate My Mail - 15
[TJ&E] Defeated a Demon Mailbox.

Mailboxes encountered in later levels may sometimes be a monster in disguise (starting around Level 5). Unlike regular mailboxes they cannot be used and when approached spring to life and chase you for a few seconds doing high damage. If you wait patiently they will peer out of the mail slot briefly and thus give themselves away.

The absolute safest tactic to use once you identify one is to use a boombox present to incapacitate them (one will always spawn on Level 1 [Fixed World]) and then follow up with some tomatoes. If you don't have a boombox the next best option is to use the Slingshot from distance. DO NOT use the standard tomatoes on their own as the throw distance is too short and leaves you vulnerable.

Another way to identify and attack them is to provoke them and then use either the edge of the map or water to block and safely wait out their rampaging attack. Once it's finished it will remain idle long enough for you to attack it. It takes a total of 10 tomatoes to defeat.



Fallen Angel
- 15
[TJ&E] Defeated a Cupid.

First encountered around Level 4, these enemies are more of a nuisance than a threat. As they're in the air, they cannot be harmed by tomatoes. Either use Icarus Wings to fly up and knock them or a charged bounce from the Spring Shoes to kill them.



Wh-wh-what Time Is It!? - 5
[TJ&E] Woke up from a nap.

Either leave the character idle or use a school book present to fall asleep. Then simply mash buttons until the character wakes up.



This Earth Food Isn't Half Bad! - 15
[TJ&E] Ate all of Earth's delicacies.

Throughout the levels are food items (and occasionally presents) that are both helpful and harmful to your character. Simply eat each helpful one (in addition to those found in presents).

Good:
Candy Cane, Bowl of Cereal, Bacon & Eggs, Watermelon, Pancakes, Cherry Pie, Fries, Pizza, Fudge Sundae, Hamburger and Fudge Cake.

Presents: Food (Can be good or bad), Rootbeer and Fudge Sundae

It's been confirmed that harmful foods do not count towards this. However whether or not food contained in presents count toward the achievement is still unknown.



It's All About The Kicks - 5
[TJ&E] Dashed with the Super Hitops.

You begin with 4 Bonus Hi-Top presents at the start of the game. Just select one, then hold the Action button to start dashing.



We're Unstoppable - 5
[TJ&E] Flew across water using the Rocket Skates.

One of the many present power-ups available. If you've identified them simply use them near water then fly right over it.



Up, Up, And Away - 5
[TJ&E] Flew using the Icarus Wings

Another available present/power-up. Once you find some, simply use them and while standing still press the Action button to flap your wings. In Fixed World there is a present containing them to the right of the Ship Piece on Level 2.



Even Adults Like Presents - 15
[TJ&E] Snagged some goodies from Santa.

Simple enough. Once you find him, just "sneak" ("action" button when no present power-up is active) and IMMEDIATELY stop moving the second he suspiciously looks around.




Lovin' This Earth Lifestyle -
10
[TJ&E] Jumped in the bath on Floor 0.

Reaching Level 0 requires either Rocket Skates, Icarus Wings or an Innertube. The entrance is on an island at the bottom left corner of the Level 1 map.

Simply use one of those presents to make it across the water then fall down the hole in the center of the island. Then simply walk into either side of the hot tub to dive in.
