Introduction: The LucasArts gem returns to XBLA with re-stylized graphics, as well as the ability to switch back to old school graphics. The game is known for it's incredible humor, so to fully enjoy it you should take your time and play the game twice through; a regular and speed run. However, if you are strictly after achievements or get stuck, follow this Story Walkthrough.
Playthrough 1: Play the game (with guide if required) and complete the requirements for missable achievements. Order of achievements should be:
  • Old School (Part 1)
  • Largo Embargo Complete (Part 1)
  • Four Map Pieces Complete (Part 2)
  • Five Minutes Later.... (Part 3)
  • LeChuck's Fortress Complete (Part 3)
  • Call 9-1-1 (Part 4)
  • Helium Inhaler (Part 4)
  • A True Pirate (At end)
  • Free Thinker (At end)
  • Monkey Master (At end)
  • Turning The Lights Out (At end)

Playthrough 2: Speed run, skip dialog. Easily done in 2 and a half hours if you know where you're going, you should net the following upon completion.
  • Speed Demon (At end)
The achievement hunter in you may tempt you to use a walkthrough the whole way, but if you have beaten the game without actually expieriencing any of the dialouge, you're missing out.

There are several full and helpful walkthroughs on Gamefaqs as well: LINK
Speed Demon25
Finish the game in under three hours.    (9) 

Same as "A True Pirate" only you will need to do the entire game in under 3 hours, you can skip dialogue to progress faster, so I would recommend doing this on the 2nd playthrough as you will miss a lot of precious gems in the way of Monkey Island humor. Hold to skip dialogue.

Achievement Walkthrough

Monkey Master20
Beat the game without using one hint.    (2) 

Don't use the hint system at all. Do NOT press during a game, if you do accidentally then reload a saved game and continue, the achievement will still unlock providing you reload a previous save that you hadn't used a hint on.

Achievement Walkthrough
Free Thinker10
Beat the game using fewer than 10 hints.    
See "Monkey Master"
Old School5
Switch to classic mode at least once.    (2) 
Press on your control pad to switch to original mode at any time (you can switch back to SE by pressing it again.)
Five Minutes Later...10
Allow Guybrush to die.    (6) 
During the "Torture" scene before the final chapter you are strung up next to Willy, simply do nothing for 5 minutes and you will be lowered into the acid pit. The game will NOT end here as a result of "killing" Guybrush, it will simply restart from the start of torture scene after a short bit of dialogue.
Turning the Lights Out10
Complete the game by using object highlighting five times or less.    
Similar to the hint system - do not use object highlighting () 5 times during the game or during the dark/blackout sequences (there are 2 during the entire game) just move your cursor about the screen and you will find what you're looking for.

You can disable highlighting in the Options so you're not tempted, but if you hit 6+ times even WITH highlighting off, the achievement may not unlock.

Achievement Walkthrough (x360a)

Helium Inhaler10
Guybrush inhales some helium.    (2) 
During the final fight with LeChuck you will happen upon a Rubber Glove in a bin (story related) simply backtrack to the Helium room (story related) and Use the Glove on the Helium Tank, then use the Glove on Guybrush. You might have to try once or twice if LeChuck is chasing you down constantly.
Call 9-1-110
Call the LucasArts helpdesk when walking through the jungle on Dinky Island.    (1) 
During the Dinky Island maze section if you walk around the areas enough (sometimes 4-6 times is required without leaving the jungle) a new area should spawn as you enter the next map, it has a Tree with a phone box on, just use the phone box and the achievement should unlock.
