Introduction:
This is a short little game that is somewhat fun, if you know the comics and characters. Simply playing through Adventure Mode and collecting all the collectibles will net you 730 , then playing the Olympic Mode games (sporting events) in both Medium and High difficulties will net you the rest.

I have heard that one achievement (Adventure Mode 100% complete) may be glitched. I did not run into this personally on two playthroughs and my only advice would be to start over and play the game again. If you don't get 100% completion by the time you beat 1,000,000 Romans at the end of the game, then you've probably encountered this glitch.

Abbreviated Walkthrough:
Start the game and choose "Adventure Mode" as this is the main part of the game. Simply play through the story of the game chasing first Doctormabus and then Brutus to try to save reality (and win the heart of fair Princess Irina for Lovestorix). As you work your way through the story, you will have to compete in different Olympic events like the long jump and the hammer throw in order to access later areas of the game. As you finish these events you will also open up the "High difficulty" versions of these in the Olympic mode of the game.

Once you've reached the last battle of the game (against 1,000,000 Romans) make sure that you have gotten the following achievements before you pick up the magic potion as this is the last and best place in the game that you'll have to get them: 50000 Helmets found, 100000 Helmets found, 50 combo hits achieved&100 combo hits achieved. If you miss these here, there is one last chance to get them after the game is over - the area outside of Brutus' quarters, but it is easier to get them here.

After finishing the game go back and pick up any missing collectibles you might have using this GUIDE.

After you have completed Adventure Mode, go to Olympic Mode and play the Olympic events on both Medium and High difficulty, as the difficulty levels do not stack.

Conclusion:
You shouldn't have any trouble with the game and its achievements unless you run into that glitch. If you run into it, my only suggestion is to play it again and just be glad that the game isn't all that long.

Collect 100000 Helmets to unlock this achievement. (2) 

 

You will get helmets every time you destroy an object or defeat a Roman outside of the Olympic events. As you fight Romans they will drop 'x3' and 'x10' multipliers. Pick these up to increase the number of helmets you receive. After picking one of these multipliers up, you will only have a limited amount of time before it will go away. If you quickly pick up another to add to your multiplier, you can extend the time that it lasts. In big fights you can increase your multiplier to well over 'x100'.

Playing through the game normally you would likely never get near this many helmets (I got roughly 15,000 when I played the game), so you'll have to grind for them. This is best done in the same place as the “100 combo hits achieved” achievement, except it cannot be done in the King of the Arena event.

These achievements are for total helmets acquired not how many you currently have, so feel free to spend your helmets for things like upgrades and health replenishment.

 

50 combo hits achieved50
Increase your combo hit counter to 50 to unlock this achievement. 

 

Refer to “100 combo hits achieved”

 

100 combo hits achieved100
Increase your combo hit counter to 100 to unlock this achievement. (3) 

 

Each time you land a hit on a Roman your combo meter will increase by 1, you then have a short amount of time to land another hit before your combo meter goes away. Hitting multiple Romans at the same time will increase your meter for each Roman hit (i.e. hitting 3 Romans with 1 attack will increase your meter by 3). Your best bet to get these achievements are in places where an unlimited (or nearly unlimited) number of Romans are available, and using combo attacks like grab and twirl to hit large groups.

I would suggest doing this at one of the following places:
When the Romans are attacking Lovestorix's chariot and you have to throw Romans at the dart board to open the door.
When you're competing in the King of the Arena event (this is when I got it).
Or at the end of the game when you are fighting 1,000,000 Romans.

When you get near the finish additional prompts will show up in order for you to dive across the finish line. These are not necessary unless it is a close race.

Tug of War Winner (High)20
Win the tug of war event in Olympic Mode on High difficulty to unlock this achievement. (2) 

 

Tug of war is done by rapidly tapping the , , or buttons; whichever is shown on the screen. As the match goes on the button that you have to tap may change, so keep your eyes on the screen as you pound on the button. The high difficulty version is especially hard and people have suggested using the Rock Band drum kit in order to be able to 'tap' the button faster. I didn't find that necessary, but it is a valid strategy.

This achievement can only be done in Olympic Mode.

 

Toadball Winner (High)20
Win the toadball event in Olympic Mode on High difficulty to unlock this achievement. 

 

Toadball is like a mix of soccer (football for those outside the US and Canada) and volleyball. You have to kick the toadballs over the net and on to your opponent's side. You can either do a long kick with or a short lob with . Use the long kick when you are on the back third of the court and facing straight at the net. Use the lob when you are in the center of the court and facing the net. If the ball is in the front third of the net, simply bring it back and use one of the other kicks.

Occasionally a ball will start flashing, if it does this it is going to explode. If the ball is on your side of the net, quickly kick it over as you will lose points if it explodes on your side.

This achievement can only be done in Olympic Mode.

 

King of the Arena Winner (High)20
Win the king of the arena event in Olympic Mode on High difficulty to unlock this achievement. 

 

King of the Arena is essentially a giant battle on top of a raised podium. You and your opponent are not fighting each other but a never ending group of Roman soldiers. The goal is to accumulate more points than your opponent. Each hit you land on a Roman gives you points, special moves give you more points, but be careful not to use your charging attack () near the edge of the podium as you can fall off, which will cause you to lose the match.

Occasionally a target will pop up on the edge of the podium. If you grab a stunned Roman (), spin him () and throw him in there ( again) you get even more points.

Whoever has more points at the end of the timed match wins.

This achievement can only be done in Olympic Mode.

The Hammer Throw is done by holding down the , spinning the as fast as you can counterclockwise and then releasing the when the on screen indicator is in the green zone.

Javelin Winner (High)20
Win the javelin event in Olympic Mode on High difficulty to unlock this achievement. 

 

You start the javelin throw by doing warm up exercises, follow the onscreen prompts as these change depending on the difficulty and mode. Then you run down the track by alternating tapping the and buttons. Before you go over the line at the end of the track, press the and release it when the indicator is in the green zone. Once the javelin is in the air, guide it through as many clouds as you can with the .

This achievement can only be done in Olympic Mode.

 

Romanophone Winner (High)20
Win the romanophone event in Olympic Mode on High difficulty to unlock this achievement. 

 

The romanophone event is like a cross between king of the arena and the romanophone boxes found in adventure mode. You and your opponent are on a platform with different colored Roman soldiers. You must hit the same color soldier as the note shown for you. If you can finish your 'tune' before your opponent you will win.

Things to remember:
The Red soldier will always be in the middle of the platform. The Blue, Green and Yellow soldiers travel clockwise around the edges of the platform, stopping for brief moments at the corners.
If you hit the wrong color Roman, you'll be sent back a couple of notes, so try to always hit the correct Roman.

This achievement can only be done in Olympic Mode.

 

Chariot Race Winner (High)20
Win the chariot race event in Olympic Mode on High difficulty to unlock this achievement. 

 

The chariot race is rather simple, just make your opponent's chariot take more damage then yours. Use the and to charge at your opponent, depending on which side he is on. Use the to protect yourself and release it at the right moment to flip over your opponent. Avoid the obstacles on the course, but try to push your opponent into them. And when you get the bonus boxes, press the in the direction indicated on the screen.

My best advice is to try to avoid the obstacles and try to push your opponent into them. That seems to be the easiest way to win.

This achievement can only be done in Olympic Mode.
