Introduction:
The adventures of Tintin follows the film as you journey across the world trying to uncover the secret of the Unicorn and locate Red Rackham’s treasure. The game consists of a story mode, Tintin and Haddock mode and a Challenge mode each with their own set of achievements. This game also includes the option of using a Kinect sensor and while it makes the challenge related achievements much easier, using a controller doesn’t penalize you at all. You will need a second controller if you wish to obtain the full 1000.

Story mode:
The story mode is surprisingly easy and will take you no longer than 5 hours. Most of the achievements will unlock naturally as you progress but it is a good idea to try and find as many golden crabs as possible to avoid having to mop them up later. In the event you do miss any, you can locate what levels need to be replayed via the level select screen as this will show you the total number of golden crabs for each level.

Tintin & Haddock mode:
This will take you the longest to complete as you need to play through the mode twice to collect all treasures, as many of the treasures can only be unlocked by a certain character and the characters aren’t all available at the beginning. Apart from Master treasure hunter the other achievements related to Tintin & Haddock mode are easy to obtain and will unlock naturally as you progress.

Challenge mode:
There are 28 challenges in total and these may prove to be the most difficult part of the game. Using a Kinect will make the plane challenges much easier but if you are using a controller, with a bit of practice, the challenges shouldn’t prove overly difficult. The main focus of this mode is to obtain a platinum medal on all challenges.

Mop up:
If by chance you have missed any of the miscellaneous achievements, load up a story level or Tintin & Haddock level to complete them, but chances are most of them will have unlocked naturally while progressing through the game.

Conclusion:
Overall The Adventures of Tintin is not a difficult game, and although the challenges may seem difficult at first, practice and patience will allow you to obtain a fairly simple 1000. The majority of the achievements will unlock naturally as you progress and with maybe the exception of the collectible related achievements, none of them ever feel like a grind.

Giant Rackham: Take 115
Beat Giant Rackham a first time! 

Giant Rackham is the boss in TinTin and Haddock mode and you will first encounter him at the end of level 7. The fight will consist of him swinging his sword and trying to hit you from above or by swiping from the side. His attacks are easy to see coming and all you need to do is either move out of the way or jump. Every so often he will lean in and 2 explosive bottles will appear. Quickly pick one up and aim for his face. Hit him 3 times and the achievement will unlock.

Giant Rackham: Take 215
Destroy the galleon! 

You will face the Galleon at the end of level 14 in Tintin and Haddock mode. The battle consists of the Galleon firing cannon balls at you, requiring you to either move. The landing location of each shot is marked so it is easy to avoid being hit. When the Galleon moves up alongside the platform as fires a cannon ball directly at you, use Thompson’s cane twirl to knock the cannon ball back. Hit the Galleon 3 times and the achievement will unlock.

Giant Rackham: Take 315
Beat Giant Rackham again! 

You will face Rackham again at the end of level 21. This will be very similar to the first encounter where you must avoid Rackham’s attacks then hit him with an explosive bottle. The only difference is his attacks will be quicker and you will have to deal with the bottle enemies also. Use the same strategy and you shouldn’t have any problems.

Giant Rackham: Take 415
Destroy Giant Rackham and the galleon! 

Once you have completed all 3 rooms in Tintin and Haddock mode, the final door will unlock and you can face Rackham and his Galleon one last time. The battle is no different to what you have faced earlier, except the attacks will be quicker and there will be more enemies to deal with. Overall the strategy to beating both Rackham and the Galleon are the same.

Castafiore unlocked10
Unlock the Castafiore! 

This is unlocked during the level ‘Destination Castafiore’ in Tintin and Haddock mode. When you reach the end of the level you will be in a 3 tiered screen with a giant Castafiore head at the top and a series of floor switches. You need to run across all switches quickly while avoiding coming in to contact with the Castafiore’s head. Each floor switch will only stay green for a short amount of time so you need to run over all fairly quickly. This shouldn’t be a problem as it’s easy to spot where the Castafiore’s head will be moving. Once all switches are green, the floor will disappear and the Castafiore’s head will bounce around the room. Again, this is easy to judge by the red lines. As soon as the beach balls appear, grab one and throw it at the head to damage it. Repeat the steps above twice more and the achievement will unlock.

Thom(p)sons unlocked10
Unlock the Thom(p)sons! 

This is unlocked during the level ‘Destination Thom(p)sons’. The end level battle will be the same as the Castafiore battle so refer to ‘Castafiore unlocked’ for more information.

Unlock Sir Francis! 

This is unlocked during the level ‘Destination Sir Francis’ The end level battle will be the same as the Castafiore battle so refer to ‘Castafiore unlocked’ for more information.

Showered with platinum80
Finish all the platinum challenges! (3) 

There are 3 types of challenges, Sword, Plane and Sidecar with a total of 28 challenges you are required to earn platinum on. Each challenge will give you a target time/score needed for a bronze. Each time you beat the target medal, it will display the time/score needed for the next medal. However, you are able to earn platinum on your first attempt. Each group of challenges will start off with an ‘easy’ difficulty, than get progressively harder.

The following is a basic guide to beating all challenges:

Sword:
These are the easiest of the challenges and will only require you to parry incoming attacks and then attack when the enemy is vulnerable. There will always be more than enough enemies to reach platinum, so these shouldn’t prove difficult.

Sidecar:

Time Trial

  • Always be sure to hold LS forward when landing off a jump to get the boost.
  • Never go in the gravel as this will slow you down.
  • Don’t go out of your way for a jump, always try and take the shortest route.
  • Practice, the required times aren’t difficult and once you learn the layout of each track it should be easy to beat.

Catch the lorry

  • Use LS to gain a boost and get as close to the lorry as possible.
  • Take the inside line when going around corners as this will close the gap significantly.
  • Overall, these aren’t too difficult and again will require practice to learn the best route.

Free-aim

  • Try and take out enemies as soon as you see them.
  • Aim for the enemies closest first as they will be easier to hit.
  • As soon as lorries or choppers show up, focus your attention at taking them out first.
  • Again, this will be a matter of practice until you learn where each enemy appears from.

Plane:

Photos

  • The key to beating this is to best utilize your boost. Try and active it when the bar reaches the small window at the end to avoid having to wait for it to recharge. Don’t spam it.
  • Having said that, only use your boost where you feel comfortable doing so. It’s best to only use it on straights as using it when going through the reticles on a corner can quickly make your plane difficult to control.
  • If you happen to miss one of the reticles, especially on the 2 difficult levels, as missing a reticule will not leave you with enough time to beat the platinum medal time.

Collect the flags

  • Focus on collecting the flags, as opposed to shooting down enemies. The flags will be easy to spot as they have beams of light clearly marking their location.
  • Again, make good use of your boost, waiting until it is near the end of the bar before using it again. Don’t spam it.
  • On the last 2 levels, you will need to shoot down some enemies to beat the required score, so try and line up enemies along your flight path. Don’t go out of your way.

Shoot down enemy planes

  • These require you to simply shoot down as many planes as possible in the time limit. Always try and shoot the planes around you, there will be more than enough.
  • Engaging in a dog fight with a single plane will waste time. The majority of planes will come at you so you shouldn’t have too much trouble with these challenges.

Crab collector60
Collect all the crabs with golden claws! (7) 

The golden crabs are only found in the story mode and are reasonably easy to spot. They will either be hidden in glowing chests or out in the open. You can check what levels you are missing crab on by going to the level select screen.

Master treasure hunter100
Find all the TREASURES in "Tintin and Haddock" mode! (2) 

Each level in Tintin and Haddock mode has 6 treasures you need to locate. The majority of these are simple and you will have no trouble spotting them. Even those hidden behind walls and in alcoves will have a glowing light that you can’t miss. However, some will not be accessible until you unlock the other characters so collecting all will require 2 playthroughs.

NOTE: The cogs and costume cards do not count towards this achievement so you don’t need to collect all those.

Super-sleuth30
With Snowy, find all the buried objects in "Tintin and Haddock" mode! 

Refer to 'Master treasure hunter' as all of Snowy’s treasures are needed for that achievement. When searching for Snowy’s treasures just be sure to dig in all available spots until you locate the bone.

Wardrobe full20
Buy 30 costumes! 

This needs to be completed in Tintin and Haddock mode. Each level will have 2 costumes cards you can collect. Once you have collected them, you can speak to Nestor (the butler) in the main hub and purchase the costumes you have located.

Each costume will cost coins but there will be more than enough on each level to cover it. Like the treasures, the costume cards are easily to spot and there are more than 30 in total, meaning you can miss a few and still unlock the achievement.

Sword gold medal20

To pull an enemy off a ledge, wait until they get close to the edge, then press . Often you will spot an enemy patrolling close to the edge of the ledge above you so try and grab hold of the ledge and wait for them to move close. You will likely unlock this naturally as you progress through the story and Tintin and Haddock mode.

Armor expert!15
Sir Francis: use the armor to knock out 20 enemies! 

This needs to be done in Tintin and Haddock mode while playing as Sir Francis. On the later levels you will be able to use suits of armor. These will make you invincible to attacks so all you need to do is attack enemies like you normally would using once 20 have been defeated the achievement will unlock. You don’t need to knock out 20 enemies while in the 1 suit of armor as it carries between levels.

Acrobatic duo10
Give your partner 5 leg-ups in "Tintin and Haddock" mode! 

You will need a 2nd controller for this achievement. Occasionally you will encounter a wall that is too high to simply jump up so you will be prompted to boost your partner up. Do this five times and the achievement will unlock. The easiest place is in the main hub.

The Castafiore does her turn25
Castafiore: do 45 spinning attacks! 

This needs to be done in Tintin and haddock mode while playing as the Castafiore. To perform her spinning attack simply press . You can do this by spamming 45 times but chances are it will unlock naturally as you progress through the game.

Art collector20

Banana king15
Make 15 enemies slip on a banana skin! 

During the story and Tintin and Haddock mode you will come across bananas you can use to throw at enemies. Throw bananas at 15 enemies and the achievement will unlock. There is no shortage of bananas and it will carry across both modes.

Lights out10
Knock out 5 enemies with a chandelier! (1) 

During the story and Tintin and Haddock mode you will come across chandeliers hanging from the roof in certain levels. To bring down a chandelier you need to throw and object at it and it will collapse. Just be sure to time your throw so that it will land on an enemy. Once 5 enemies have been knocked out, the achievement will unlock.

Metalhead10
Throw a pot at an enemy's head! (2) 

In the early story levels you will encounter pots that can be thrown like any other object. All you need to do is throw the pot at an enemy and the achievement will unlock.

Five go bang10
Get rid of 2 enemies at the same time with an exploding object! (1) 

Explosive objects are the glowing green bottles you encounter throughout the story and Tintin and Haddock mode. Just wait until 2 or more enemies are close together then throw.

Football champ15
Knock out 2 enemies in a single throw of a ball using a rebound! (1) 

You will need to use the beach ball for this. When you have 2 enemies in close proximity of one another line up the shot so that after you hit the first enemy, the ball will rebound and hit a 2nd enemy. This can be tricky as often the rebound shot is not strong enough to take out the 2nd enemy if it rebound off another surface after hitting the first enemy. There is no shortage of places to try this but if you are having trouble and your first shot doesn’t work, you can allow yourself to die, to restart from the checkpoint.

Complete artist20
Finish a Tintin & Haddock mode level without losing any coins! (Apart from the side-car levels). (1) 

This requires you to complete a level without being hit. The first couple of levels are the easiest to attempt this on as there are the fewest number of enemies. This isn’t overly difficult and once you get a feel for the game you will probably unlock this naturally.

Cane juggler20
Bounce 10 objects off Thom(p)son's cane! 

To deflect an object you need to press when an object comes close. The easiest way to unlock this is when you encounter the cannons that shoot fireballs. Simply stand in the path and deflect 10 as these are infinite.

Champion catcher40
Catch an object in full flight with the grappling hook! (1) 

This needs to be done as Tintin as he is the only one with the grappling hook. To use the grappling hook, hold and press . The easiest object to use for this is the beach ball. Throw it against a wall then use the grappling hook to catch it. This may take a few tries until you get the hang of where to fire the grappling hook. Also be sure to try this in a closed off area so the beach ball doesn’t fall off screen.

Passenger in transit10
Change characters in flight with the parrot! 

During some of the Tintin and Haddocks levels, you will be able to use a parrot fly to higher ground. Once you have control of the parrot and are in the air, simply press and the achievement will unlock.

Supersonic parrot30
Finish "The mystery of the talking bird" in less than 3 minutes 30 seconds! (3) 

This is a difficult achievement as there is no timer to track how you are progressing and you basically need to run through the level perfectly in order to make the time. It’s a good idea to run through the level a few times to get a feel for it, then attempt your speed run. The hardest spot will be the 3 enemies with guns, as you need to take them out quickly without getting hit.

Ever-dry10
In the PLANE challenges, stay near the water for 7 seconds! (2) 

In any of the plane challenges near water, dive down until you are hovering above the water (you can’t fall in) and hold position for 7 seconds. Just be sure the stretch of water is long enough and don’t use your boost.

Untouchable20
Finish a SWORD challenge without getting a scratch! (1) 

It is recommended you attempt this on the first sword challenge as it is the easiest. Just be sure to defend all attacks. This may take several attempts but overall is quite simple.

Motorcycle ace20
Finish a SIDECAR challenge without crashing into a wall or obstacle! 

The easiest level to attempt this is the first time trial challenge. Just be sure to take your time and stick to the middle of the track to avoid accidently hitting a wall on a corner. Overall you shouldn’t have any trouble with this one.
