Welcome to the Shadow Assault Tenchu Roadmap. This road map will explain the quickest way to get all 12 achievements with ease along with some strategies to attain some of the more challenging ones. The game will require only 1 playthrough followed by a few levels replayed as other characters. Characters are unlocked by playing a level with a certain character.

Rin - Complete level 1 with Rikimaru
Nasu - Complete level 1 with Ayame
Tenrai - Complete level 10 with Ayame
Tesshu - Complete level 20 with Rin
Kagura - Complete level 25 with Tesshu
Onikage - Complete level 30 with Rikimaru

Step 1: Play through the Game
Play through the game. There are 30 levels in total. Achievement description's can be found HERE. The levels that have achievements are:

Mission 1
Mission 8
Mission 11
Mission 21
Mission 26
Mission 28

These require a specific task to be completed, which can be found in Outinthedark's achievement guide HERE

Lastly level 30 seems to be the level in which people have the most problems with so a video guide to that level can be found here:

Step 2: Mop Up
Mop up the remaining achievements. This is not much of a problem since the levels are extremely short. A bit of a tip from me is to use a female character as they are faster getting around the level. (Male characters have more health but are slower)

Overall this game is fairly simple, each enemy in the game has a set pattern that they patrol in as well as each having they're own unique sight distances. Watch how each enemy moves and you will be running through the game in no time at all.

Finish Mission 1 without being spotted by anyone except Echigoya.   
When you start Mission 1, immediately go forward towards the bomb trap. When you pick it up, stay in that corner until the guard walking down the main hall turns around and is walking in the other direction. Plant the bomb trap in his path by using the button. Move into the next room until he walks into the trap. Go into the next room, pick up the spring trap, and plant it in the path of the next enemy. For the "boss" use the springs and plant two traps to kill him. Note that this enemy moves in a square, not linear, pattern.
Finish Mission 28 without being discovered by anyone.   
Make sure you kill everyone. If their yellow squares turn red, you've been spotted. Good luck on this one - there is no real strategy aside from memorization and practice.
Finish Mission 8 with at least 90 seconds left.   
You have to be fast with this mission, but it is very easy to do after you see where everything is, so start the level to see where the traps are and then restart mission. When you start the mission, grab the bomb and deploy it on the left wall towards the middle section, so you get the explosive that looks like a pipe. When you get it, aim to the right and shoot when both enemies seem to be lined up. You will kill both of them and then grab the bomb in there. Throw the bomb at either guy in the next section. Finally, pick up the spring trap and kill the last enemy.
Finish Mission 21 with at least 60 seconds left.   
Like "Footsoldier", just start it look around the map to see where everything is, consider a strategy, then restart and try to finish the level as quickly as possible.
Finish Mission 11 without taking any damage.   
This is somewhat luck-based and there really aren't any specific tips that I can offer. Just keep practicing the level until you make it through untouched.
Finish Mission 26 without taking any damage.   
This is another achievement that requires a fair amount of luck. I got past the first two people and then ran through the rest of the level. Again, memorize the enemy patterns and you should get this with ease.
Pull off a 15-hit combo.(Solo Play)

Pull off a 20-hit combo.(Solo Play)

I got this on Mission 4. There are two enemies on this level with 30 health points and your target is the skinnier of the two. He walks in a random pattern, so I will tell you how to do this with ease. Grab the first spike and place it where there is the linked row of spikes. Then, go back to where you entered and go around the corner where there is another spring trap. Place it in between the row of spikes facing left. Go further left towards the spring trap right by the enemy with 10 health points and place that in between the two spikes right above where you picked it up. There should be one more trap and it is by the skinny enemy mentioned above. Grab that and wait for more traps to spawn.

When they spawn, plant another trap directly above the 10 health point enemy. Plant another trap all the way at the top of the map right above the one in between the two spike traps. After planting it, grab another trap that is close and go all the way to the left of the map and stand to the left of the trap in between the two spikes. When the enemy walks into the trap above you and hits the trap right in front of you, deploy another one in the same spot facing the same direction and wait until that enemy is dead. Kill off everyone else and when the mission is over the achievement will unlock.
