Guide By: MeonOner
There are 45 achievements with a total of 1000 points.
Step 1: Starting/Playing the game
While going through the game collect as many music notes as you can and level up all songs to Level 7. After completing one song, buy the next one and do the same. Rinse and repeat for all 19 songs. Make sure if you are playing in co-op that you win every race and bonus levels, if not make a note somewhere and go back and redo the level. Also keep notes on what levels you have completed in co-op, since the game does not tell you. Because if you don't remember what levels your missing you will have to start the game on co-op from level one. (Hopefully you keep/kept on what levels you missed/didn't do in co-op)
Co-op alone: If going for the co-op achievement alone, make sure you turn on your second controller before you exit a level, finish a Race level and before you do your last button mash for a Boss level; press on the second controller to join.
Step 2: Clean Up (with Level Select)
Step 3: Final Achievement (Grinding)

Your first Bonus level is Level 11. This can be done quick. Just push so the second control is in. Collect as many notes as you can then go to the 'green zone' and do a co-op dance combo by holding down to finish the level. You are timed on this so don't worry if you don't get all the notes.

You will have to hit three stunt hoops. Make sure to press the corresponding button that shows up in the stunt hoop. Start up a Race level 9 since its the easiest and has 5 stunt hoops.

|Smash five Stone Columns|
This will unlock through natural progression. Stone Columns can only be destroyed by using the Emperor Penguin. They are located through out the entire game, and so are the Stone Columns.
Note: If playing co-op, controller 1 needs to have the Emperor Penguin on their team.
|I Feel The Earth Move||10|
|Smash three Ice Boulders at the same time|
Best place to do this is Level 11, Bonus Level. Slide down either right/left slide. Get the Disco Fish in the middle and press to do a Stomp. You can also get Drop It Like It's Hot here, if you missed it the first time.
Note: If playing in co-op, controller 1 need to smash three boulders on their own.

|Shake Ya Tailfeather||10|
|Wake up five Sleepy Penguins|
Super easy. You will come across multiple Sleepy Penguins through your play through. To wake up a Sleepy Penguin you first have to have a certain number of penguins following you. Once you have the requested amount, press to wake them up & then tap to dance. Repeat this 4 more time during your play through.
Note: If playing in co-op, controller 1 needs to be the one waking up the Sleepy Penguins.
|Out Of Touch||20|
|Complete Level 28 without getting hurt|
Level 28 is a Bonus level. I found that playing this in co-op is mush easier. Stay as far away from the Skua birds and spike rocks. Have the second player move on forward and collect the Disco Fish. This will scare away the Skua birds and also destroy the rock spikes, making your path much more safer to complete.
|Nothin’s Gonna Stop Us Now||20|
|Complete a Race without hitting anything|
Easiest way I found to do this is hold down the the whole way down. Avoid any jumps and music notes near spikes or rocks. Take it easy and don't rush. I personally got this on Race Level 16. If you do not get it on this specific level, don't worry. There are a few different Race levels that can work for you best.
|Never Gonna Give You Up||20|
|Win every Race|
There are 6 Race levels spread out through the game. If you have won every single race so far, this will unlock after finishing Level & Race 48.

There are 2 different tyoes of moving platforms: The First one that require you to stand on top of of them and press to make them go up or down & The Second one that require one penguin to jump on top of a pressure ice cube and the other penguin on the platform that will be raised or lowered.

|Assemble a group of 5 penguins|
For this you just have to recruit 5 penguins in a level. Probably wont get this until Level 4. Along with Close To You.
|Scare 20 Skua Birds||(1)|
To scare a Skua bird you will need either an Emperor Penguin or the Disco Fish power-up. A level that I found easy to do this in, is Level 35. Towards the end of Level 35, you will need to recruit the Emperor Penguin to finish the level. Before finishing the level, go to the single Skua bird, with the Emperor Penguin, and us the Stomp combo, (wait), (wait), (while in the air). Repeat this 19 more times and the achievement will unlock.
|Collect 200 black notes in one level||(1)|
This isn't as bad as it sounds. It doesn't sound bad at all. Earliest level you can get this is Level 8. Suggest playing solo that way you don't have to worry about getting your music notes stolen. Just go through the level destroying every ice block, ice rock, spikes you see and collect any music notes that are in the open. To get a bunch of music nites collect the Gold Snowflake, which will make it rain MUSIC NOTES!
|Activate all the Vibes in one Level||(2)|
You will want to turn 'ON' your vibration option for this one. Easiest level I found was Level 8. At the start of the level to the right and your control should vibrate, hold down until a ring of music notes pop.NOw go to the left side of the level and do the same. For the last Vide spot you will have to continue through the level and in the area where the Gold Snowflake is, you will fill your control vibrate.
|Don’t Worry, Be Happy||20|
|Clap 108 times|
This was completely random and I didn't know it was an achievement until it pop. Simply tap or hold the to make your penguin clap. It does not have to be 108 consistent claps, but if you want to get this out the way just spam your
|Rock With You||20|
|Complete five levels with every penguin in the level|
This will unlock after Level 5. That is if you collected every penguin in the first 4 levels. To know you have collected all the penguins for a specific level, look at the bottom of your screen for each level. There will be a row of grayed out penguins. Every time to find a penguin, use the to dance, this will collect the penguins. The grayed out penguins in the bottom will fill in. Do this for the first 5 levels and your achievement will pop.
|Bridge Over Troubled Water||20|
|Cross 50 Ice Rails|
This will come naturally as you progress through the game. Just cross every Ice Rail you see. I unlocked this during Level 26.
|That’s What Friends Are For||50|
|Complete the game|
Story related and can not be missed, see Take On Me.
Just complete the game.
|Take On Me||50|
|Complete an entire game in Co-Op||(1)|
Like the achievement description says. Beat it in Co-Op. So grab your bother, sister, mom, dad or friend and play through the whole game together. This will also unlock the Take On Me achievement.

|Heart Of Gold||50|
|Complete the last level of a Land with full health|
This is the end of Chapter 2, Level 16. Its a Race level, so just take it easy and use to slow down and keep a good speed. You don't even have to win the race to unlock the achievement.
|We Built This City||50|
|Bring 200 friends to the Doomberg|
This Doomberg is the last Boss Level 45, and should pop at the beginning of the level. Just get 200 penguins from collecting them in each level. You also get penguins from leveling up songs. There are more than 200 penguins to get, just collect as many penguins per level you can, and level up songs when you can. By the time you reach the end you will have enough.
|Another One Bites The Dust||50|
|Beat a Boss without making a mistake|
First Boss you go against is in Level 7. Just follow the red ball and press the according buttons once the red ball bounces over them. You DO NOT have to get 'PERFECT' each time, as long as you hit the correct button your fine.
|Unlock all songs|
There is a total of 19 songs. You will need approximately 30,000+ black music notes to buy them all. If you don't have this buy the end of the game just replay some levels, mainly Bonus level 34.
|Level up all songs|
The maxed out level for every song is 7. Level up as many songs as you can during your normal play through. For the ones your still need leveling, replay Level 34, over & over. Its the quickest level to get notes in and finish. This will get very boring, really quick.
|Collect 2000 Black Notes|
This achievement will come with natural progression. There are a lot more than just 2000 Black Notes through the game. I personally unlocked this in Level 16, during the Race.
|Eye Of The Tiger||50|
|Defeat every Boss without making a mistake||(1)|
You need to match all of the buttons at the same time as the bouncing ball hits them by pressing the correct button without making a mistake. After each section in the Boss battle, you will have to mash one of the letter buttons on your controller (whichever shows up). If you do make a mistake, just exit and restart the level.
Co-op alone: For doing the boss levels to get the co-op achievement, make sure your second controller is turned on, wait till the last button mash and press on the second controller to join. Then mash the button that is showing on both controllers. If you defeat every boss without making a mistake, the achievement should pop up after you defeat the last boss.
|Hit every stunt hoop in a Race||(4)|
This seems to be giving a lot of people a hard time. For this you have to hit every stunt hoop in one race. Do Level 9 as it only has 5 hoops and its easier than the other Race levels. Just take it slow and get used to the Level first. When you are getting near a ramp, tap the to get some boost going, then press to jump off the ramp, then either press the :ybuy:, , or to do the correct trick. The buttons appear in random order and they change when you restart or fail.
Note: Press the correct button before you go through the stunt hoop. Achievement unlocks once you go through the finally hoop, so you don't need to finish the race.
