Introduction:
Welcome to Comic Jumper, another fun filled game by Twisted Pixel! Comic Jumper follows the story of protagonist and player character Captain Smiley and his biologically attached abrasive sidekick, Star. The duo must travel through different comic books, each with unique drawing styles, and fix the comics' plots. Four distinct comic styles exist in the game; Modern, which features bold colors, Fantasy, which features subdued colors with watercolor backgrounds, Silver Age, which is presented in cel-shaded graphics, and Manga, which is presented in black and white. When in a respective comic style, Captain Smiley and Star's character design adapts to fit the look of the comic, sometimes even adapting weaponry to match the setting.

Breakdown:
Through this game you'll unlock most achievements in the first playthrough but some will/may take a little bit of grinding and a few more plays of the Comic Chapters and Challenges.

You should easily get a total of 100 just from the story before you do a bit of money grinding. Follow the guide and these achievements will be yours: "Neural Net Processors", "Two Stood Against Many", "Hero of the Silver Age", "Brad's Saviour and Best Friend", "Job Well Done, Faithful Reader", "Press X a Lot" & "Shut Star Up".

Once your first playthrough is completed you'll need to move onto any missable and grinding achievments. The grinding achievements consist of: "Collection of a True Fan", "I Took Performace Enhancers" and "Violence Solves Everything". For these achievements you'll need to replay Comic Chapters and/or Challenges to earn as much extra money as possible by the end of each Issue.

You may have enough money after the first playthrough to buy every Upgrade AND Bonus Material in the game to unlock "Collection of a True Fan" and "I Took Performace Enhancers", so the grinding may not be necessary. I recommend you buy the Bonus Material stuff first to get Score Multipliers. By the time you have bought them all the total added is 325% onto your end scores and added money. All this means now is you'll earn that cash a little bit faster.

Below is the best and fastest way to gain money.

Grinding Method:
This is an alternative way to play the game if you're looking to play through it fast.

First play the Introduction Comic (CS #23), and then afterwards, go to Winklemeyer and purchase as many Bonus items as possible (wont be too many but buy the cheapest - see list in the achievement guide). After that, go to the Comic Jumper, choose "Challenge" and choose the 2nd stage. It's REALLY easy to reach the end without getting hit (Only takes 1:05-15 to complete), and you can average $3000-$4000 after each run. The more Bonus items you buy, the more your total is multiplied. Basically, play a few rounds of this stage to earn money, and then go back to Winklemeyer and buy more Bonus items. Your average will then shoot up tremendously thanks to the multiplication.

Doing this technique will mean you'll have much more money in the bank at a faster rate and you can buy everything thus unlocking "Collection of a True Fan" and "I Took Performace Enhancers" much quicker.

For "Violence Solves Everything", I recommend you constantly hold  to make the most of it. One playthrough doing this will net you around 50-70k bullets fired! See the achievement guide for more information.

The missable achievements consists of: "Eugene's Protégé", "Shut Star Up" and "He Ain't Even Married". For these you can simply restart any or a certain Comic Chapter and try and unlock the achievment you're missing. For "Eugene's Protégé" you can't miss one QTE throughout the whole game.

"He Ain't Even Married" is a very strange achievement indeed. See the achievement guide for more information.

Hints & Tips:

  1. Slide is your friend. To preform a Slide, press down on the  and then press  or  at the same time. You'll slide along the floor in the direction you are pushing and dodge enemy attacks with ease.
  2. Jumping is also very useful because you can use it like the Slide to get out of sticky situations like ground enemy attacks and to get you up high away from them.
  3. Trigger happy! Always hold the  to shoot your gun. Doing this will help you clear distant enemies off screen or just as they enter and give you much more breathing space when the screen gets crazy.
  4. Skipping parts! Sometime the levels just get full of enemies and you're constantly getting hit and running past them all is the only option. If you can't do a section and the screen lets you move on, just run, jump and slide your way out of there!
  5. Spend your money wisely! I recommend you use it on the Bonus stuff and little bits on the Upgrades. I'd also suggest you keep to Health and Damage for the first few purchases so you don't die as easy and can kill faster! See the Breakdown/Grind achievements for a little more detail.
  6. Health. If you're low on HP and you dont mind wasting it or you dont use it, then press  for the Help Me move and not only will everything die on the screen but your Health will be fully restored. Just watch out though as if you do use it you wont get the Bonus score/money at the end of the Issue!
  7. Remember if you're having trouble with aiming and shooting enemies, you can always go to the settings and turn Aim Assist on.

Conclusion:
Comic Jumper is a hectic game but packed full of fun. If you take it at a good pace you should have no trouble with it and have a nice challenging but rewarding 200 on your wall!

Neural Net Processors10
Destroy 25 of Brad's BradBots. (2) 

You'll unlock this on the very first level - Adventures of Captain Smiley #23! After the first cutscene, just fight your way through the bank until you make it onto the rooftops and another cutscene takes place. This is where you'll first be introduced to Brad and his Bots.

After the cutscene you're shown how to use your guns and then attacked by Brad's Bots. Just carry on with the level as normal and kill them from that point on. You should get this by the time you get to the first hanging pipe but if not, dont worry there's more than enough to kill!

Pressed X a lot10
Earn some cash by talking to people in the base. (1) 

As soon as you've completed CS #23 and the cutscene ends, you'll be back in your base. This area is where you can talk to people, upgrade, get new missions and check your stats among other things. All you have to do is walk around your base and find characters from the Comics and certain objects. Go up to them and press  to talk or interact with them. Once the scene ends you'll be handed some cash. You should be able to get this after the first Nonac Issue.

 

Collection of a True Fan25
Spend your hard-earned money and buy all the unlockables from Dr. Winklemeyer. (4) 

I recommend you buy the Bonus Material stuff first as you start to get Score Multipliers which increase your score and money at the end of an Issue. See the Breakdown in the Road Map for more information. You earn cash by playing through the Comics, completing Challenges, talking to people and interacting with objects around your base.

Violence Solves Everything10
Fire 125,000 total shots. (15) 

You wont get this on your first playthrough. You'll have to go back and do a 2nd playthrough and/or do the Challenges to rack up the bullet count. I suggest you constantly hold down the  button as you play to speed this process along. One playthrough doing this will net you around 50-70k bullets fired depending on deaths, etc!

The best way to get this achievement is to do the rubber band trick. You'll get about 7-10k worth of bullets in about 1 hour or less.

If you want to see how many shots you've fired, just head to the Stats computer which is in the same room as Gerda to the right.

 

Eugene's Protégé20
Play every reaction sequence mistake-free. (3) 

These are the QTE's (Quick Time Events) that pop every once and a while throughout the game. The first one you come across is on CS #23.

The camera will change its angle and the buttons () will pop up on screen. Make sure you hit everyone without making a mistake. They're not all that difficult but if you do miss one by mistake just come back to that Comic Issue later and replay it.

There are a total of 3 QTE's in the game: CS #23, Nonac Issue #286 and CS #00. The achievement will unlock when your score is shown at the end of the last comic.

 

He Ain't Even Married20
Survive a specific section without getting hit. (27) 

Benny starts with over 800K Health.

Ths fastest and best way to beat him is to use all 3 of your TP Help moves. Make sure you have 3 to use before the fight starts and that you have full HP. If you don't have full HP, just die as the fight starts and you'll spawn right at the beginning of the boss fight again.

Now onto the fight. Use the first TP Help move just before you trigger the falling section of the fight. Then use your second when he is down to about 350k HP during the falling part. Then as soon as you land hold right to run away and use your 3rd.

He'll either die right there or have less than 2k HP, it all depends on when you use the powers. Either way its the fastest and best way to kill him without having to really fight him!

 

Shut Star Up10
Let your feelings guide you. (4) 

At the end of CS #23 & #00, you and Star will have a little arguement. During this you'll punch him and then he'll bite your hand. When this happens, you can press  to punch him. Do this 15 times and the achievement will unlock.

If you missed it, just come back and replay these Issues.
