No Fear Of Heights
|Beat the Gondola game without shooting.|
You must beat the Gondola arcade game in Stage 4 without pressing button for this achievement. This achievement will take some patience to pull off as it can be rather difficult if you don't play carefully. The Gondola game can be played midway through Stage 4. After taking out the helicopter on the rooftops, there will be an arcade machine right next to the shop. When playing, you can press to shoot the obstacles, but for the achievement you will need to complete it without shooting. This can be very annoying since the enemies drop obstacles at different sequences each time you restart. Relax and take it slow as their are safe areas on the side you can plan your next move at.

probably the most rediculous achieve in the game, 90% luck based. my advice take it slow to figure out locations and plan your moves when you get near the top i usually go up one space to set off the one falling object then tuck down under the opening window and scoot to the right one space when it falls and then go up to the other opening windows letting the double wide piece fall then try to get to the right side then to the middle in the three lane area and work up as fast as possible while "side stepping" the trees or bombs or whatever they drop. keep in mind the ufo going sideways.
still took me bout an hour and 42 continues so def dont try this when looking for a decent score.. my total was -105k yes negative.

It's not impossible, no, I got lucky and did it on around my tenth try, but yes, it is pretty much entirely luck based, bad form for an Achievement, but perseverance is the key here!

I gave up to progress the story. I'll go back on another playthrough. Any idea if an easier level makes that easier as well?

doesn't matter the difficulty it's always the same lol. i can go through it probably only shooting 2 or 3 times, but i gotta figure out a non shooting method lol

the last part is luck really, the first 3/4 is based on memory of enemy locations

Got this one last night, 35 continues! Pain in the arse but fun/challenging, reminds me of old arcade games of the 80's (that's the point, right?). Still have the song stuck in my head and Juliett talking about looking at her pink butt lol

I keep reaching the last three columns near the top only to have them drop two objects side by side or have the HORRIBLE collision detection say that I hit an object when I moved to the space directly above it after it was clear. Fuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu.

Tuesday, August 28, 2012 @ 06:55:10 AM
I got it!!
I want to observe: there's no logic or rhythm/pattern to the way the objects fall, the way there would have been in a original 80's arcade title..
I did it over 3 days and used 80+ continues I'm sure. But taking a break from it and loading up the checkpoint caused my 'continues used' to reset meaning I got a silver award for this stage..
I'm officially allergic to Juliet's pink butt, I never want to hear about it again..

21 tries total. Finally got this-tried it over several days. @24, probably the best way to go about. Agree that games in the 80s had detectable patterns, which this should have.

Took me 12 goes in the end. Still managed a B+ overall rank and 12.0 hunter rank (due to having A+'s in everything else) lol.

This has to be one of the STUPIDEST, ANNOYINGEST, BULLSHITIEST achievements of all time. Easily in the top five. Achievements derived from some half-assed, mostly luck-based minigame with poor controls, poor hit detection and overall suckitude, should not be allowed. In fact, we need to make examples out of the fucks who keep coming up with retarded minigames and even more retarded achievements. Tar and feather them. Flog them. Whatever it takes to keep these kinds of shit minigames and achievements out of what are otherwise kickass games.

I got this achievement after 25 continues, but I am trying to get the world score achievement. I keep dying at this part, even with shooting. Any advice?
|Comment #38 by Terransheep|
Friday, February 01, 2013 @ 12:40:18 PM
got it~ ! just gonna be patient and read their move. the blue zombies will do specific animation when he's about to throw tree or car. don't be too rushy, sometimes when I trying too rushy and end up not enough time to side dodge. that's mostly the main problem. they usually only have 2 patterns in a go. read 2 attacks then u're off!
|Comment #39 by bettawithtoast|
Wednesday, March 06, 2013 @ 03:54:22 AM
It was pretty easy, took me about 10 tries. Take your and learn the patterns and it's easy. At the very end when they're dropping them from basically all spaces, when you clear one of the guys tossing the objects hide right behind his block and wait til the perfect time to make your move past the next. From there you can see things coming a mile a way, you won't get hit by them. Take your time, it's easy.

This one took me 49 continues xD, it could of have been like 20 but i moved the thumbstick almost at the end.
And yes, this on is pure luck no skill involved.

1. This achievement is not "pure" luck. It's mostly luck, but not pure luck.
2. Definitely take your time. Understanding and learning trigger points will help. At the end, definitely take #39's advice.
3. You WILL have that song stuck in your head. Nothing you can do unless your TV is on mute.

Just got it few days ago. I failed on my first approach (probably around 15 tries). Then I left it for a day and got back after reading comments here.
1. Turning off the music definitely helps
2. Try to be as relax as possible
3. it's NOT luck based and NOT random (maybe with slight randomization). What I found is that whenever I repeat my steps exactly the same - same path, same speed - I got the same results most of the time.
Depending on where you are on the screen the lines, columns or certain fields act as trigger points to drop obstacles on you. It looks like time after which guys in windows will drop bomb on you is slightly randomized, but IT IS triggered by where you stand.
Do not rush, learn those trigger points and you will succeed.
