Achievement Guide and Roadmap


Earthworm Jim HD
Achievement Guide and Roadmap by TealPavelski.

Overview:
- Estimated achievement difficulty: 4/10 for 130 - 8/10 for 200
- Offline: 10 (160)
- Online: 2 (40)
- Approximate time: 1-2 Hours for 90 - 6-8 Hours for 200
- Minimum number of playthroughs needed: 1-3 (Explained below)
- Missable achievements: None
- Does difficulty affect Achievements? 2 (Superhero! and Earthworm Never Dies)
- Unobtainable achievements: None
- Avatar Awards: 2
- Unlockable Gamerpics: 2


Introduction:
Rediscover the grooviest action game of all time in full hi-def glory with Earthworm Jim HD! For the first time, grab friends and combine your wormy powers in four-player co-op locally or online. Explore all the original levels, experience wild gameplay, and rock to the remastered cult soundtrack. There's even more to discover with brand new enemies to blast into pieces and never-before-seen locations. Now that's groooovy!


Playthrough Strategy:
It would be wise to have at least 3 playthroughs of single-player. The first playthrough go for the easier Achievements (Bin Collector, Atom Raider, Atom Jefferson, Space Collector, Super Space Collector, Canadian Stunt, Banker Whipper and Snot An Achievement). Second playthrough go for and on your third playthrough Earthworm Never Dies. I would not advise going for Earthworm Never Dies in the same playthrough as Superhero! because you might not want to rush through the levels because you cannot die even once!


Avatar Awards:
Earthworm Jim's Space Suit
Complete one of the three bonus levels to unlock (Male & Female)

Bonus Levels are unlocked in Single-Player by collecting the Bonus Level Canisters that are on single-player levels.

Earthworm Jim's Groovy Shirt
Beat the mid-boss in New Junk City to unlock (Male & Female)

This is the first boss you will encounter on the level "New Junk City".


Unlockable Gamerpics:



Gamerpic is unlocked when starting a new game in single-player.



Gamerpic is unlocked when starting a new game in co-op.


Achievements:


Bin Collector - 10
Kill Billy the Bin in New Junk City

This is the first boss you will encounter. Simply hold or and you will have him killed within a minute. This will also unlock Earthworm Jim's Groovy Shirt Avatar Award.

Atom Raider - 10
Collect 100 atoms (without exiting the game)

Simply collect 100 atoms without exiting the game. Easily obtainable with normal playthrough.

Atom Jefferson - 15
Collect 500 atoms (without exiting the game)

Simply collect 500 atoms without exiting the game. Easily obtainable with normal playthrough. This might require multiple playthroughs. If you do not collect 500 atoms on your first playthrough of the game, simply select "Continue" from the Main Menu and replay any of the levels to collect more atoms.

Groovy Leader - 25
Be "No.1" in each Xbox LIVE multiplayer level

Exactly what the Achievement description states. Be No.1 on each Xbox LIVE multiplayer level. You must outscore your opposition on each of the 15 Multiplayer levels to unlock this Achievement.

Canadian Stunt - 5
Use the whip to swing from any moose head in Single Player mode

Can be achieved on the first level "New Junk City". Simply locate the Moose Head and press to use the whip and swing from the Moose Head.



Superhero! - 35
Get through Single Player mode in Original difficulty in one sitting in under 50 minutes

Exactly what the Achievement description states. Play through the entire Single Player mode in Original difficulty in one sitting in under 50 Minutes. My best advise is to simply rush as fast as you can and do not worry about collecting Atoms, Orbs or Extra Lifes.

Banker Whipper - 5
Whip the banker twice in What The Heck?

Achieved on the level "What The Heck", you will first encounter the banker after using the first rotating green gem. After crossing a chain you will encounter the Banker behind the first gate that you must raise by whipping the gear. Simply press when near the banker to whip him. Whip him twice to unlock the Achievement.



Space Collector - 15
Collect more than 100 Blue Orbs (without exiting the game)

Simply collect 100 Blue Orbs without exiting the game. Easily obtainable with normal playthrough.

Super Space Collector - 20
Collect more than 300 Blue Orbs (without exiting the game)

Simply collect 300 Blue Orbs without exiting the game. Easily obtainable with normal playthrough.

Snot An Achievement - 10
Launch the cow in New Junk City

Easiest Achievement in the game. You will encounter the cow on the first level "New Junk City" within the first minute. Simply shoot the Refrigerator hanging over the cow to launch him.



Earthworm Never Dies - 35
Clear Single Player mode in Original difficulty in one sitting without losing a life

By far the hardest Achievement in the game. You must beat the entire Single Player mode in Original Difficulty and you cannot die, not even once! My best advise is to take the maps slowly and don't rush.

World Partnership - 15
Complete all the Xbox LIVE multiplayer game levels

Exactly what the Achievement description states. Complete all 15 Xbox Live multiplayer levels to obtain.

Earthworm Never Dies

that's not a hard achievement? the number of retries for that should add a few hours should it not?

You need to jump on the gem and walk on it to move it upwards.

good start on the guide, teal.

if the "groovy leader" achievement can't be done with four controllers, i'd be willing to try to find a way and boost it with you, or whoever.

Groovy Leader and World Partnership have to be done over Xbox Live it seems, me and my brother played through all the new levels on local co-op and didn't get the achievements.

But on the bright side you can get Atom Raider and Atom Jefferson in local co-op.

You collect the Blue Orbs in the Andys Asteroids races. There are quite a few of them in between levels, I managed to get the collect 300 orbs achievement on the last race before the last level.

Okay for the 300 Blue Orbs/500 Atoms achievements, can you go back to main menu? I ran out of continues so went to go check out the bonus levels. And was wondering whether it means one sitting as in you can't go to dashboard or turn it off etc but just have to be on the game?

Hey guys, new to the boards, just wanna say good job getting this guide up and running so quickly! Interested to hear how difficult people find the "Earthworm never dies" achievement! Personally think it'll be tough...

does that mean you can get the 500 atoms the same way? play through the campaign then start another one up from the main menu, as long as you don't click to exit game?

yep. you can return to the menu all you want. just dont quit to dashboard or power off.
maybe, find a level with a bunch at the start, grab them and pause and restart level.

that should work with orbs too.

Hi there! You seem to be pretty knowledgeable about this game, and I'm stuck. I HATEHATEHATE it and never want to play it again, but I'm almost all of the way through it and I'm stuck on a part after the fourth fake tempest level, where you jump up two saturn shaped objects and they shock you. There's a little target I shot up there, but I don't know what to do next, and if I have to jump across those three little shock things with these horrible terrible no good very bad controls again, I'm going up in my attic, finding all my old Earthworm Jim toys, and throwing them right in the oven. Thanks for your help in advance!

Oh, nevermind, I figured it out right after posting. Now I'm in Buttville. Which is where this game belongs. It's the worst thing I've ever played and I would like to murder anyone that helped make it. I'll still rock the avatar suit, though.

Great guide teal, and speedy! I was gonna write a guide myself, you saved me the effort lol.
I've got everything now bar the the original 50 mins and no deaths. All I have is one thing to say..... Major Mucus can kiss my white azz, most annoying boss I've played in awhile.

Hey TealPavelski, if you want a better picture of the costume and shirt, wear them, which I know you are already for the costume, and wait for xbox.com to update.



I look damn sexy.
