Megamind Achievement Guide and Roadmap

Achievement Guide & Roadmap

Roadmap

Overview:
- Estimated achievement difficulty: 1/10
- Offine: 1000
- Online: 0
- Approximate amount of time to 1000: 3 - 6 hours
- Minimum number of playthroughs needed: 1 (you can replay levels if needed)
- Missable Achievements: 0
- Do cheat codes disable achievements: N/A
- Does difficulty affect achievements: N/A
- Glitched achievements: None but see note below.
- Unobtainable achievements: None
- Extra equipment needed: None

Introduction: Welcome to my Megamind: The Video Game guide. The game is a linear action game and is the exact definition of quick movie tie-in games. It is pretty simple, short and generally geared toward a younger audience with a few minor challenges on the boss fights. The majority of the achievements will be unlocked during the course of normal play and anything else can be completed with the level select feature. The best news is there are no collectibles to worry about!

Step 1 - Play through the main levels of the game. If you play in CO-OP, only the player controlling Megamind gets the achievements. Save yourself the hassle and just play solo the first time to unlock everything. There are 10 levels total and each one can easily be completed in less than 30 minutes if you just run through them. On level 1 you should attempt to complete it without dying. On levels 3, 6, 9 and 10 you need to beat the bosses without dying. None of these "do without dying" achievements are very difficult and can all be done via level select if you don't complete them the first time. I have tips for the bosses in the guide if you run into trouble. Everything else unlocks during normal play and should not prove too troublesome although this can be compounded by a pretty nasty glitch that I have listed below.

Step 2 - Mop up anything you might have missed using the level select screen. It is the map that is found in your lair hideout. You don't have to play the mini-games at all.

Conclusion:
Overall the game is not too difficult. The average gamer should be able to complete the majority of the game within a single day of dedicated play. This makes it a perfect candidate for a weekend rental.

Glitch: I ran into a pretty ugly glitch. It does not stop you from getting achievements but it does make the game progress a lot slower. Here is what happens, when you complete a level, any applicable achievements unlock but then the game just locks up. You cannot continue and you do not get the option to save your game and return to the hub. That means that you have to replay the entire level again! Worse is that you still may or may not get to continue after playing a second time. This has happened to me on levels 1, 2, 6, 8 and 9. I had to replay level 6 FIVE times before it finally saved and went to the next level. I don't know what causes it or how to fix it. I have tried installing the game to the hard drive, resetting the Xbox, shutting down the Xbox, switching Xboxes, letting the boss kill me once, not getting hit by the boss at all, etc... No one solution worked every time for me. I really feel that it is a random occurence whether you get the save screen or not. I was able to progress through the game but it does get a little frustrating to have to replay the levels an unknown number of times before you get lucky. Even with the glitch though, I was able to complete the game in 6 hours. That includes writing the guide.

Glitch Update: On November 29, 2010 there was a title update and the glitch was patched. If you are playing offline and the level glitch occurs, log into Xbox Live and restart the game to accept the update. Thanks to everyone who has reported in.

That's it everyone, thanks for reading.

Mega-Hero - 75
Complete the Game as Megamind

Story Related and cannot be missed. This unlocks once you have finished the story mode of the game.

Assistant Collector - 25
Collect 1000 B.I.N.K.E.Y. in any single level as Megamind

See "Mega Collector".

Collector - 50
Collect 2000 B.I.N.K.E.Y. in any single level as Megamind

See "Mega Collector".

Mega Collector - 75
Collect 3000 B.I.N.K.E.Y. in any single level as Megamind

B.I.N.K.E.Y. are the blue glowing objects scattered around the levels and are used to upgrade your weapons. You also receive them from destroying objects and killing enemies. The achievement will unlock shortly after you collect the required amount during the game. You can get 1000 and 2000 unlocked in the very first level, “The Museum”. The 3000 can easily be collected in level 2, “Downtown”. I had over 9000 by the end of level 2.

Lair Clean Up - 25
Collect 150 B.I.N.K.E.Y. in the Lair as Megamind

The Lair is your home base or the hub that you visit between levels. At the very beginning of the game, just run around and collect all the B.I.N.K.E.Y. (blue glowing things) you see and this will unlock.

Mega-Skill - 50
Complete any story mission without dying as Megamind

Simply complete any level of the game without dying or falling to your death. I suggest doing this in the first level since it is the simplest. There is a good chance you will get this to unlock without really trying for it but if you don't get it during the course of playing the game, you can always reload a level and try as many times as you need to. Eventually you will master a single level and get this knocked out.

Mega-Ball - 25
Unlock the Mega-Ball mini-game as Megamind

This unlocks automatically when you complete level 4, “The Underground”.

Pod Race - 25
Unlock the Pod Race mini-game as Megamind

This unlocks automatically when you complete level 2, “Downtown”.

Sticky Boots - 25
Unlock the Sticky Boots mini-game as Megamind

This unlocks automatically when you complete level 8, “The Overpass”.

Rampage - 25
Unlock the Rampage mini-game as Megamind

This unlocks automatically when you complete level 5, “The Sewers”.

Mega-Blast - 25
Unlock the Mega-Blast mini-game as Megamind

This unlocks automatically when you complete level 7, “Uptown”.

I noticed the glitch while playing through as well. I found that it would sit there and not continue the game whenever I beat a boss without dying. Never failed, even after getting the achievement, resetting the xbox, etc etc., if I beat a boss without dying, it would hang like you describe. Going through the level again and purposely dying to the boss fixed it every time for me. It happened to all the bosses except the last one. The normal levels without a boss at the end worked fine for me, no glitch at all.

Nice guide. I'm getting this from Gamefly today so it will definitely help, although the achievements are pretty self explanatory. Sounds like an easy 1000. Thanks!

Hey, nice guide!

I also found this on Stallion83's blog, which may be useful if you are getting the end of level glitch.

""2:22PM -- HOT Tip for megamind to cure the freeze glitch that happens at the end of levels.

DubNut86 says "Hey mate, still having problems with Megamind? My friends playing off a USB drive and is on the 4th level with no problems at all. Just thought i'd let you know and hopefully save you playing 40 levels!"

You could probably use a Memory card also. Just don't use your HDD to save to. Thanks Dub!""

Doesn't work with the memory unit. I always save "kiddy" games on my memory unit, and Megamind was no exception. Glitched levels: 2, 3(twice), 5, 6, 7, 9 (twice).

I'm glad it's over!

Unfortunately, I had level 3 glitch on me seven times so I had a lot of time to refine my fighting technique versus Destruction Worker. Everything you said is correct but I found a slightly easier way. After he gets done firing the five shots at you and begins shooting at crates to drop on you, run directly at him. You should hit the wall underneath him and just keep your LS pushed forward so you're continuously running into the wall. The crates won't be able to fall on you and when the last crate falls and drops the explosives, they will fall almost exactly where you need to place them. This makes the part with the wrecking ball A LOT shorter.

I'll let you know if I see anything else as I progress through the game (hopefully without glitches )

Nice Guide. I didn't encounter the level freezing glitch. There was a title update when I put in the game, perhaps it was fixed.

Great guide. Completed the game in 3-4 hours, quite enjoyable for a kids game. Never encountered the freezing glitch, so I believe the patch works. Keep up the good work!

I would say about 3-4 hours for 1000. I will confirm the game didn't freeze once and I beat it in just one sitting.

I would highly suggest you make it a 1/10 this game was easier than Hannah Montana, easier than Night at the museum, and easier than a lot of games you can complete with cheats even. You really can't get much easier, even the bosses were easy to avoid for getting hit!

Oh, and another thing you could mention what the BINKEYs you collect do, they let you upgrade your weapons. You could also subtract that you wrote the bosses were tricky (I think you wrote that somewhere). It's very much the opposite!

Yes, I started it today and after the update, I have not had any glitches or problems. I have 750/1000 and only 4 achievements left. I played maybe a total of 2 to 2.5 hours. Very easy and fun game.
