I did it!

Finally popped that final one. Tough set of achievements. 2-4, 2-6, 3-9, and of course 3-17 were all pretty challenging on hardcore. Ah, but it is the challenge that makes the achievement worth it, no?

Good luck to those of you still working on this. Man, I'm glad to be done with it.

Thank God!

Finally put this misbegotten game in my rearview mirror last night. 3-17 was a challenging slog, as others have noted.

Seriously, I don't know what the design and development philosophy is at Twisted Pixel, but if their other offerings are this frustrating and needlessly, pointlessly difficult, then 'Splosion Man is my last purchase from them.

Congratulations to all others who have completed it, and for those still working it who read this, know that the feeling of victory when you finish this... Doesn't nearly make up for all the hair you've torn out, and likely the controller you've broken, but it does help.

Again, well done, everyone, and glad to have joined you so I never have to pick this game up again.

The Maw is very easy and has very easy achievements. We'll see what Comic Jumper is like.

I just beat it as well, it was no where near as hard as I thought it would be. Playing co-op is much harder.

Oddly enough, I think it skipped a level. When I loaded it up today, I was expecting one more level, yet I was at the last boss.

I remember in the normal mode, there was this spot where you have to dodge super fast rising water.

Or wait, I remember now, that was to get the cake in 3-17, god I'm glad I didn't have to do that in hardcore mode, haha.

Got this achievement today.

It's not exactly difficult, but i'ts REALLY frustranting, 'cause every time you make a tiny mistake, you have to start the level all over again.

I think it's more of a test of patience than skill, and I'm really glad it's over.

Now I'm only missing multiplayer achievements.
Is anyone up for it? I don't know anyone else who plays this game.

This is one of those achievements I thought would be much harder to get than it actually was. It was frustrating having to restart the level after every death, but that was about the only difference I noticed between this and normal.

Got it a couple of days ago. The most annoying thing was that I had gotten near perfect runthroughs of all the levels on normal to get into the top 40 on the leaderboards. Just couldn't make it happen on hardcore >.<

Finally finished. I had the most trouble on 3-4, I think it was. I found the levels with little cinematics to the be the most annoying, because I'd have to watch the 15 second videos every time I died.

Well. After many cigarettes, beers and having to fix my controller after being thrown at the wall so many times, I finally done it.

BOOM! Finally managed to get through hardcore mode. 3-4 was my downfall, didn't find out about the "impossible jump" till recently so I picked it up again. Now this is an achievement I feel I have definitely earned. Congrats to everyone else who managed to get it done!

I had to spread this out over a couple months due to the frustration, but I cranked out 3-4 through the end in the past week. So glad to have this done. Now all I have left is the ENTIRETY of the multiplayer section. Probably take a break before I start that up though.

Good to see 2-4 getting mentioned as a hard one as I've been stuck ion that for ages. May return to play it again soon, feeling slightly better that it's on the harder scale... plus this will surely be nothing afetr Super Meat Boy!

I'm the splode king.

Now I need to get multiplayer done. I'm thinking the achievement guide should say something more like 15-20 hours cause 8-11 is just ridiculous.

Working my way through Normal right now... and to be honest, I find the game REALLY frustating already. I mean, I like other quite challengeing games like Trials HD and Mirror's Edge... but 'Splosion Man? Nope. As a couple of people already have stated - the game beceomes annoying, not challenging...

We'll see if I'll make it through Hardcore Mode... I highly doubt it at the moment.

Bought the game from the sale and finally got this one. One of the more satisfying achievements I've been able to get. Took me about double the time of the Normal run through. Kind of annoying that the level restarts on all the ones with cinematics, but at least that way you get good finish times!

Yeehaaw! Just a few minutes ago I finally finished "All Hail To The Splode King" and with this I got my 100% on Splosion Man. Definitely my Pain-In-The-Ass and Never-Again achievement! Good luck to everyone who still is working on this one!

Took me round about 8hrs just for this, another 8 hrs for co-op with all cakes and probably another 5-6 hrs for normal mode with all cakes. So I doubt that the info from the achievement guide is correct for getting 100% in this game.
