Introduction:

Welcome to Crash: Mind Over Mutant! This game has a total of 48 achievements and requires only one playthrough plus some mopping up in order to gain the full 1000 gamerscore. I gave this game a 4/10 difficulty rating simply because of the mundane task of upgrading mutants, which is extremely boring. And you will be nowhere close to having every mutant and Crash upgraded even by the time you beat the story mode. The Cheat Codes work without a negative effect on achievements. So use one, or use them all, it's up to you.

Preparation:

Make sure to read the Achievement List and familiarize yourself with the achievements. Before beginning either print off a copy of the Doll/Whumpa Fruit Guide HERE, or have it opened in a web browser. And you must have a second controller at the ready if you want the 3 achievements listed above in the Missable Achievements.

Step 1: Play the Game:

The game is your basic platformer/action game, you run along attack enemies, make you way through precarious pathways, and battle bosses. But you must pay close attention to the cut scenes because this is where you'll be told what to do and where to go. There is an in-game map but it doesn't really help all that well so pay attention to the cut scenes. Make sure to collect all voodoo dolls and Whumpa Fruits listed HERE, and Co-Op Puzzles HERE, in each area as you come to it. This will save a lot of backtracking for you later on in the game. All achievements that should unlock for progressing through story mode will unlock when they should. All others can be gained at any point past the completion of Story Mode, or at any point during the Story.

Step 2: Mop Up:

Their is a great spot shown HERE, which is also explained in the Achievement Guide, at the beginning of the entrance to Mount Grimly for collection of mojo without enemies. Make sure to get you Mojo Multiplyer up to x20 and head there with any Mutant you need to upgrade, Upgrading crash will take the longest. It will be boring doing this, and take some time, but there is no way around it.
