Introduction: Welcome to my Megamind: The Video Game guide. The game is a linear action game and is the exact definition of quick movie tie-in games. It is pretty simple, short and generally geared toward a younger audience with a few minor challenges on the boss fights. The majority of the achievements will be unlocked during the course of normal play and anything else can be completed with the level select feature. The best news is there are no collectibles to worry about!

Step 1 - Play through the main levels of the game. If you play in CO-OP, only the player controlling Megamind gets the achievements. Save yourself the hassle and just play solo the first time to unlock everything. There are 10 levels total and each one can easily be completed in less than 30 minutes if you just run through them. On level 1 you should attempt to complete it without dying. On levels 3, 6, 9 and 10 you need to beat the bosses without dying. None of these "do without dying" achievements are very difficult and can all be done via level select if you don't complete them the first time. I have tips for the bosses in the guide if you run into trouble. Everything else unlocks during normal play and should not prove too troublesome although this can be compounded by a pretty nasty glitch that I have listed below.

Step 2 - Mop up anything you might have missed using the level select screen. It is the map that is found in your lair hideout. You don't have to play the mini-games at all.

Conclusion: Overall the game is not too difficult. The average gamer should be able to complete the majority of the game within a single day of dedicated play. This makes it a perfect candidate for a weekend rental.

Glitch: I ran into a pretty ugly glitch. It does not stop you from getting achievements but it does make the game progress a lot slower. Here is what happens, when you complete a level, any applicable achievements unlock but then the game just locks up. You cannot continue and you do not get the option to save your game and return to the hub. That means that you have to replay the entire level again! Worse is that you still may or may not get to continue after playing a second time. This has happened to me on levels 1, 2, 6, 8 and 9. I had to replay level 6 FIVE times before it finally saved and went to the next level. I don't know what causes it or how to fix it. I have tried installing the game to the hard drive, resetting the Xbox, shutting down the Xbox, switching Xboxes, letting the boss kill me once, not getting hit by the boss at all, etc... No one solution worked every time for me. I really feel that it is a random occurence whether you get the save screen or not. I was able to progress through the game but it does get a little frustrating to have to replay the levels an unknown number of times before you get lucky. Even with the glitch though, I was able to complete the game in 6 hours. That includes writing the guide.

Glitch Update: On November 29, 2010 there was a title update and the glitch was patched. If you are playing offline and the level glitch occurs, log into Xbox Live and restart the game to accept the update. Thanks to everyone who reported in.

That's it everyone, thanks for reading.

Destruction Derby50
Defeat Destruction Worker without dying as Megamind 

Destruction Worker is the boss of level 3. For the achievement to unlock you just need to defeat the boss without dying. Here is the method I used:

First since you do not regain life while playing, the point of no return is when you are making your way through the remnants of the destroyed building. If you don’t have close to full health, let these guys kill you before moving on to the boss. This will restart you with full life right before the boss fight. If you die during the boss fight the achievement will NOT unlock.

When you start the fight, just stand there and shoot the goons coming down the ramp. The boss will now spray the area with 5 shots so just avoid them by walking or jumping between 2 of them. He will now shoot at some crates that are above you. At this point run straight ahead and into the wall directly below the boss. All the crates will miss you and some dynamite will land near by. Finally, he will operate a wrecking ball and try to drop it on you. Let the wrecking ball lock onto you and then get out of the way before it drops. There is a slight shake to let you know when to move.

Now the ball will reset, so quickly grab the dynamite and start walking to the blue circle on the ground in front of the boss. When you see the wrecking ball coming at you again, drop the dynamite and get out of the way. You will only be able to take a few steps each time. Once it resets, pick up the dynamite again and keep moving toward the boss. Repeat as needed.

When you finally place the dynamite, run to the button behind you and press it to detonate the charge. Now more goons start coming down the ramp again so just repeat the entire process 2 more times and you will have him beat.

Thanks to Method for refining my original boss strategy.

 

Psychotic Win50
Defeat Psycho Delic without dying as Megamind 

Psycho Delic is the boss of level 6. For the achievement to unlock you just need to defeat the boss without dying. Here is the method I used:

First the point of no return for this fight is when you use the switches to open the large clown mouth to proceed. Again, if you don’t have full health, go ahead and kill yourself so you have a better chance at fighting the boss without dying since you will gain a full life bar upon restarting the checkpoint. If you die during the boss fight the achievement will NOT unlock.

For the boss fight, it is extremely simple. The boss will stay on the top level and you will be attacked by minions and steam on the bottom. There are five buttons on the bottom level that correspond to the steam vents on the top level. All you need to do is run around killing guys and avoiding steam and then press the button underneath the vent the boss is standing on. To make it even easier they even put a big blue arrow on the button you need to press. Repeat 4 more times and he is finished. This whole fight took maybe a minute or 2.

 

Flash in the Pan50
Defeat Hot Flash without dying as Megamind 

Hot Flash is the boss of level 9. For the achievement to unlock you just need to defeat the boss without dying. Here is the method I used:

Once again, the point of no return is where you are crossing a bridge and you can see trains moving in the background. Once off the bridge you will fight a small group of enemies. If you are low on health let these guys kill you so you can start the boss fight with full health. If you die during the boss fight the achievement will NOT unlock.

For this boss you need to start by taking out all the goons. They come from the left and right so just stand in the back near the middle fire hydrant and shoot them from a distance. Hot Flash will then start shooting at you so just run back and forth to avoid her flames. You will get prompted to use the fire hydrant so run over to the one that is shooting water and rapidly press  to increase the pressure and hit the boss. Repeat this process 2 more times and she’ll be knocked out.

 

Tightanic Battle75
Defeat Blue Tighten without dying as Megamind 

Blue Tighten is the final boss and you go right into this fight when you select level 10, "Blue Tighten Battle". For the achievement to unlock you just need to defeat the boss without dying. Here is the method I used:

It is actually pretty easy. You will be in a robot suit and just need to move your cursor around and shoot any debris the boss throws at you. He will eventually grab a column and try to hit you with it. Just destroy the column out of his hands before he gets the chance. Repeat with 2 more columns and a portion of the roof will collapse and fall on his head causing damage.

Now repeat the whole process 2 more times and he is finished and so is this game. Good job!

 

Mega-Hero75

Story Related and cannot be missed. This unlocks once you have finished the story mode of the game.

See "Mega Collector".

Mega Collector75
Collect 3000 B.I.N.K.E.Y. in any single level as Megamind 

B.I.N.K.E.Y. are the blue glowing objects scattered around the levels. You also receive them from destroying objects and killing enemies. The achievement will unlock shortly after you collect the required amount during the game. You can get 1000 and 2000 unlocked in the very first level, “The Museum”. The 3000 can easily be collected in level 2, “Downtown”. I had over 9000 by the end of level 2.

 

Lair Clean Up25
Collect 150 B.I.N.K.E.Y. in the Lair as Megamind 

The Lair is your home base or the hub that you visit between levels. At the very beginning of the game, just run around and collect all the B.I.N.K.E.Y. (blue glowing things) you see and this will unlock.

 

Mega-Skill50
Complete any story mission without dying as Megamind 

Simply complete any level of the game without dying or falling to your death. I suggest doing this in the first level since it is the simplest. There is a good chance you will get this to unlock without really trying for it but if you don't get it during the course of playing the game, you can always reload a level and try as many times as you need to. Eventually you will master a single level and get this knocked out.
