This is done by using the ramps to access the backyards in the neighborhood. Fifteen ramps are in Auburn Pines and can be accessed before going through the black gate.

 
 Chompin' Champ (15 points)
Won all prizes in Bobbing for Apples.
 

Score the needed number of points before time runs out by getting the Green apples (three points) and Red Apples (one point) while avoiding the Apple Cores and Worm Filled Apples. Use the to move from right to left and press when you are over either a Red or Green Apple. In each of the following areas you will need to talk to the apple guy three times and collect the target number of points before the time runs out.

 Do the Monster Bash (10 points)
Got the jump on 10 monsters.
 

Once you visit all twenty houses in Auburn Pines, you can enter the Black Gate. At this point, you will see the monsters in the streets. Sneak up behind them and press to do a pail bash. Do this ten times to get this achievement.

 
 Downsized! (15 points)
Defeated BoJonn in battle.
 

BoJonn is found after cutting through the cemetery. He is basically a really big Grubbin with a Megaphone. Take out his megaphone first, as he will use it to continually summon other monsters. Otherwise he is pretty simple, just watch out for his attacks, as he is powerful.

 
 Dozer Dodger (15 points)
Defeated Metxel in battle.
 

You fight Mextel after going through the Black Gate in the mall. Make sure to have someone wearing the Knight costume. If one of your players says something indicating that they are going to be attacked next, make sure to shield that player on that turn, or Mextel will kill them in one hit. Mextel has 1000 HP. When he gets to 0 HP his Bull Dozer blows up and he gets 850 more HP.

Put on the correct costumes and return to the contest area to get the achievement.

 Master of Disguise (10 points)
Used every Costume Ability in battle.
 

In battle you have a charged attack set to the . On your third turn you will be able to do your special attack. Do this with each costume except the Grubbin costume to get this achievement.

 
 Sweet Justice (25 points)
Finished the game!
 

This is done by defeating BIG BONES. I suggest fighting him after you reach level 10. I used:

Robot with the Headless Banshee stamp
Knight with the No-Eyes Vampire Bat stamp
Pumpkin with the Vegetarian Witches Brew stamp

Big Bones will start with 4000 HP. Once he gets down to 1000 HP he goes on a sugar high. The only real difference between the two modes is that you have less time to respond to the quick time event.

 
 The Last Gourdian (10 points)
Acquired the Pumpkin Costume.
 

The Pumpkin costume is found in multiple neighborhoods. You get the pattern and the pieces from talking to the scarecrow. The first is in the cemetery, the second is in the lower level of the mall near the costume party, and the third is right before the corn maze at the carnival.

 
 They'll be worth a lot someday (15 points)
Collected all Battle Stamps.
 

Battle stamps can be bought from Sally in the park, her dad's camping store in the mall, and north of the carnival in Fall Valley. They can also be won in battles. Collect all twenty-four to get this achievement. Note: You will get the last one from defeating Dorsilla.

 
 Birdbrain Beatdown (15 points)
Defeat Araxia in battle.
 

To defeat Araxia you need to enter the final Monster Gate, where a cutscene will ensue. You will fight him alongside Big Bone (they both have 4000 Hp), dont worry though, you only have to hurt Araxia. After dealing roughly 1000 damage, Araxia will jump into the air. You need to attack him 3 times so that you force him into Big Bones. This will knock Big Bones down again, stopping his attacks against you, which hurt ALOT. Rinse and repeat. This boss fight is rather tough, unless you are either lucky of who Araxia attacks, or have the correct set-up.

Reynold: Robot or Pumpkin, equipped with Skeleton of the Wolf. Keep reynold as the main damage dealer, doing 400 - 500 per hit.
Everett: Yeti equipped with either Disembodied Six-Fingered Hand, or Galvanized Mummy Gauze, as you want to keep Everett alive so that he can protect the team with his Yeti's Abominable Armor. You need to use this when Big Bones is upright and glowing (Pre-attack phase), the only exception is if you have the chance to knock Araxia into him, do that instead.
Wren: Unicorn equipped with Headless Vampire Bat - Wren is your healer for this, just use My Pretty Panacea on a member of the party who will die from getting hit, or either dead/incredibly injured after being attacked.

 
 Jeepers Peepers (5 points)
Acquire the Eyeball costume.
 

For this you need to find all the materials required, along with the pattern. Details below:

-Pattern is found within the chest that is in the maze type area, opposite the 'Secret Cave'
-Track Suit is found in a cave, south of the first bridge in the game, you have to jump down and follow a series of planks to get to it.
-Wire Mesh is found within the cave that you need to use the grapple hook to get to. The line is just before the cave where the Track Suit material is found.
-Crepe Paper is found after the first bridge, just follow the southern fence until you reach a gap, just drop down and it's in the chest on the same platform.

 
 Playin' Hooky (5 points)
Use the Pirate hook on 5 unique ziplines.
 

In order to use Grapple Hook Ropes, you need the Pirate Costume. For information on how to obtain the costume, see here.

1 - The first grapple hook location is just before the first bridge that you can cross over, you need to head southwards from said bridge, walk off what seems to be a waterfall and follow the wooden planks down till you get to it.
2 - The second is just northwards, but in the same area, as to where you find the chest that has the Eyepatch material in.
3 - Third grapple is found at the top of the scaffolding type area, next to the monster gate in the east of the town.
4 - This one is a required grapple, you need to gain entrance to a tomb for the Trowbog elder.

 Short Stack (10 points)
Find the mysterious visitor in the cliffs of Repugia.
 

To get to Short Stack (Charlier from the XBLA game Stacking), you need to drop off a cliff. This cliff is found south of the Trowbog Elder. Go over the first ramp, then the second but before the third (Everrett will comment on a satellite view of repugia), there is a cactus style plant on the right, you simply need to walk between the two plants and off the cliff and then enter the cave at the bottom of the drop, the achievement will pop after that.

The Elder in question is the second Elder, the TROWBOG, not the GRUBBIN Elder. He asks you to explore the Trowbog national monument cave.
