Enter the underground section of Amazon and climb up the other side using only the pogo jump.
In the Amazon level there will be 2 entrances to the underground section in the first part of the level. You must climb down the rope on either side and then only use your pogo jump to reach the rope on the opposite side and climb up to the surface again. This will probably take you a few attempts so try both routes to see which is easier for you. If you get hit or miss a pogo jump then you must start over by climbing back up the rope to the surface and reentering the underground section. This is best done on easy since you have infinite lives and will probably get hit or miss a pogo on the spikes a few times along the way. Thanks to AcidDrop for the video!
how the hell do u do this one ? i start left to right and even tried right to left. i can kill all the spiders and snakes no problems but the thorns on the roof always hit me !! is there a way u can control how high u jump ?
Make sure to grab the coin before you start attempting this. You can get through with the treasure chest there but it's a lot harder. It's also very important to remember that you can control jump and pogo height by releasing the button early. Practice doing micro-hops near the start. Like Jaxson said if you land on the edge of a block you won't pogo off it so it's best to take the extra time to line your shots up so you land in the middle of everything you plan to bounce off. Most of the spiders are easier to micro-hop under than to kill, but if you do want to kill them make sure that your pogo bounces line up to the timing for them to drop. You want to hit them right as they get to the bottom of their line. There are two ways to do that. You can use shorter hops until the timing goes r
[...] You can use shorter hops until the timing goes right or you can back away half a screen and then jump back in. They won't drop unless you're next to them and in these old school platformers you can typically charge in at full speed for the best attack windows. This applies to the snakes too.
Put it on EASY as you can die many times and respawn in the level. Best way i found to do this is going from RIGHT to LEFT as there is a platform that when going left to right its very hard avoid landing on it and stop hopping
after the first snake get the spider right away cause if you don't he can be very hard to get past
stick with it and you will get the old school adrenaline feeling kick in!
Important note: Always leave the cave and re-enter if you failed and want to try again. I did this on Xbox and Playstation and both times I didn't get the achievement/trophy on my first successful try because of this.
I watched the video from Youtube how to do it, and this is the second achievement in the game I'm really gonna spend my time with! This can be compared to playing the whole game through on Extreme skill level. You have to be handy to pogo to survive alive through the this one... This is gonna be my last achievemnent I get in this game! Perhaps it's easier to beat the game in Extreme level than pogo your underground way through...
