Achievement Guide

Review: http://www.totalactionadventure.com/...ews-limbo-xbla

Thanks to Phawx for the sweet walkthrough videos. They can be found here in their entirety: http://www.brainlazy.com/article/vid...evement-guide/

Overview
Estimated achievement difficulty: 5
Estimated time for 200: 2-5 hours
Minimum playthroughs: 1
Missable achievements: None
Glitched achievements: None
Offline: 12 (200)
Online: 0 (0)
Cheats disable achievements: No Cheats

What I suggest is to not use this guide to find them, as it is a lot of fun to just finish puzzles and figure stuff out on your own. At the very most, you should note the chapters and try to find it yourself and only use it if you're stuck.

Overall the game is pretty easy to get all of the achievements, most of them will take you one play through and only the "No Point In Dying" achievement will be difficult.

NOTE: Although the achievements are listed based on the chapter they are in, when playing the game you are never notified that you change from chapter to chapter. The only time you can find out which chapter you are on is to go to the "Play Game" menu option and choose "Load Chapter". My suggestion? Play through the game once from start to finish, then use the "Load Chapter" option to find the missing achievements. The chapters are usually separated by a single puzzle, so you will go through them pretty quickly

Wrong Way - 5
Chapter 1 - Right at the very start of the game, go left.

Altitude is Attitude - 5
Chapter 2 - When you need to knock the tree off the top of the tree climbing section, keep going up (using the rope) and you'll find the piece.

It's Stuck - 10
Thanks to atheistium - Chapter 11 - After finishing the worm-brain puzzle, drag the platform you were standing on over and to the right. Drag it into the water on the right and use the platform to reach the rope thats attached to the pipe. Hang there and the piece will land on the platform.

Urban Exploration - 10
Chapter 14 - At the elevators, climb onto the top section while its going up. Theres a rope attached to a drain which will push out the piece. Climb back down and claim it.

Alone in the Dark - 10
Chapter 15 - This can also be done at the end of 14 instead, but right at the start of 15, go backwards and down the ladder. Go right to go into the cave. Keep going until you hit some water, jump and you will connect with a platform. Climb up and go right to collect the piece.

Climbing the Cog - 10
Chapter 16 - At the very first cog in chapter 16, don't pull the switch. Instead, climb the cog around to the other side to claim the piece.

Backtracking - 10
Chapter 19 - You can see the piece, but with the cog turning upwards, return back to the upward thwomp (the one you hang off of) and climb the ladder on the left. Go through the cog

Guided By Sparks - 10
Chapter 19 - Near the end of chapter 19, you'll come to a level rotating puzzle with a swiging light source. At the end, you'll be on an upper platform with a vertical spark bar. Climb the box that falls and jump to the left, then jump to the right past the sparks. Collect the piece.

Under Ground - 10
Chapter 21 - In the second puzzle section of Chapter 21 (the elevator/turret/gravity puzzle), with the elevator in the up position, move against the elevator and press down. You will climb beneath the elevator and jump to the right to safely climb to the bottom and collect the piece.

Going Up - 10
Chapter 23 - Right after the hotel section, at the very first "timed" gravity puzzle. Go left and you'll fall into a section with a hold spot on the wall. Be fast and open it to get the piece before gravity turns back.

Where Credit Is Due - 100
Finish the game and go past the credits.

No Point in Dying - 10
Complete the game in one sitting with five or less deaths

Avatar Awards
Thanks to Gottle for putting this together.

Unlocking your first achievement you'll get a white Limbo shirt
Finishing the game, you'll unlock a Limbo creature


Will be updated with better pictures when they are available.

Once someone finds "It's stuck", just hit me up over Live or post here and I'll edit the main one and I suppose that can be the guide. Screw Pre-Guide, looks like I wrote my first guide!

Congrats on the first guide. It's a pretty good game to make your debut because the achievements are pretty hidden in this game.

Ah, I was hoping to find the "It's Stuck" achievement here as I have found all the others :/

I think it would be on the level with the weather changing device... but have had no luck

GL on constructing your first guide.

I think you said state at the top however:-

How easy is it (1-10)
How long does it take
Are there glitched achievements
Are there multiplayer achievements
Etc...

A lot of other guides have these and it's a nice addition

It's Stuck (Chapter 11)
On the level where you get a worm in your head and have to break the pipe for water to raise. Complete the puzzle and when you jump off of the pipe at the top drag the pile across with you past the ladder.

You will see a rope and some deep water. push the pipe into the water (all all the way) and then use it to jump from the pipe onto the rope. The small white blob will drop out onto the pipe.

Can't seem to find the Going Up achievement location. I load up Ch. 24 per the guide and it drops me at the turret/gravity/magnet puzzle. I see a little white dot underneath the big block, but can't see if that's what I'm supposed to get, nor can I even get there in time. Any help?

Sorry, my bad, had that mixed up. I've edited the guide to reflect that.

Hey, I'm the one who told atheistium how to do the "It's Stuck" Achievement!!!

Haha . I don't care. To be honest, NanoArtist is the one who helped me get the "it's stuck" achievement.

I've recorded the videos on how to do all the achievements. Once I get the "OK" from the publisher I will un-private them on youtube and toss you guys the links.

We also will have a review up on Monday. The game is short, but it's fantastic. Plus the "No sense in dying achievement" is a lot of fun. I got through 53 minutes of playing without dying once, and then I die because of timing... Silly because there was only like 45 seconds of the game left.

I still got the "no sense in dying" achievement, but I wanted to get it without dying at all.

I also have the video of the full playthrough with one death. I'll put that up when I get the approval.

"No Point in Dying" it's a bit too difficult, but not impossible.

Hah, toucher. Man, I thought I went through and confirmed all of these already, but that's the second one. I'll double check the rest tonight.

EDIT: And that also means that Guided By Sparks is also in 19 and not 20. My bad guys.

102%

For completeness, it should be mentioned that there are more hidden "eggs", or whatever you want to call them, than there are achievements. It appears there are 12 glowing eggs to find, 10 of which there are achievements directly attached to. The other two are completely hidden. I've seen some people mention one of them as it's the only one of the two I know of that are visible during normal game play.

It's possible there are more, but as I and Pelloki both have 102% on the leaderboards, and only a handfull have 101%, it seems unlikely.

Leaderboard % guide:
Completing the game - 76%
Achievements - 2% each (24% total)
Secret eggs -1% (2% total?)

The two I know of I won't give guides for, but the one I've seen mentioned before is on a ceiling in a box levitation area. The way to get to it requires more finesse than any other puzzle in the game, but is not straight forward. It might be possible to get it via abusing the physics system, but there is an easier and more consistent way that requires some patience.

The other one is in the blackness beyond some gears that appears to be certain death.

I'm curious if anyone else found any other eggs that did not give an achievement.

Only found that one, totally by accident as well so I can see quite a few more of these hidden throughout. I think you've just told me what I am spending my night doing though.

Should that sort of thing go in the Achievement Guide though? I'd hate to ruin it, just knowing there out there makes it more exciting.

I wonder if there's something extra for collecting all the hidden eggs and how many there are.

Kind of like how Braid had the optional stars for a little more replay.

@NanoArtist

Thanks again for letting me know how to do the "It's Stuck Achievement" Also, I did get the hidden egg on the ceiling, but I didn't get the one in the darkness.

Looks like I'll have to go and look for it.

But that would explain why I have 101% and you and that other dude have 102%.

I do have the video for that hidden achievement on the ceiling. Again, I'll post them when I am allowed.

I'm willing to bet he got a review copy ahead of time.

Aside from that, how do you distinguish between the chapter breaks? I'm pretty sure I got onto chapter two during my few minutes of playing, but since this game isn't much for spelling things out, I'm not sure. I only ask so I can be prepared for the achievements.

You can't, unless you exit out and go back to the load menu screen where you can select the chapter. Best bet is to play through and enjoy it your first time, then go through and collect what you didnt find by accident. But again, I gotta stress, don't just straight up use the guide to hunt. These are some really fun extra puzzles to find.

I'm actually having a blast playing through this game unassisted. I jump a little bit every time I get caught in a bear trap I didn't see. It's such great genuine tension.

Lots of accidental deaths. I kept track and I died ~75 times before I finished. That last achievement is pretty damn hard... been close a few times though.
