 Social Climber (15 points)
Finished every level in Xbox LIVE

For this achievement have a willing friend on your Friends List to play through every single level with you over Xbox Live. Start at USA Level 1 and work through to Japan Level 5. This will only take roughly 20-30 minutes. I would recommend playing straight on Xbox live with a friend just to have a taster of what all the levels are like. If you use this method you will unlock the following achievements, "Euro Star", "I’m Big in Japan", and "American Hero".

 Sore wa kantan desu (10 points)
Finished Japan level 4 with a time of 1:40 or better

In my opinion this is probably the hardest achievement in the game, it requires you to beat Japan - Level 4 - Muzukashii Wheel in 1:40. I would advise for you to play this level and learn it by heart. Take a look at the video below for tips on how to speed up your play through of this level.

 American Hero (20 points)
Finished the USA Levels

 London Bridge (40 points)
Survive the collapsing bridge in London 5

At the end of London 5: Abbey Road there will be a collapsing bridge with a wheel that chases you. The collapsing bridge is the last obstacle, and as long as you don't "chicken out" and skip it, you will unlock the achievement. Just keep running forward, jumping or ducking for the obstacles and make sure to push your boost () to the max.

 Hats off to You! (40 points)
Get launched through the magic hat in Vegas 5

Near the end of Las Vegas 5: Fear and Loathing, there will be a box on a conveyor belt and you have to jump over a flipped out wall obstacle. After the first wall that flips out there will be a giant Top Hat with a Green Arrow going through it. Simply jump into the hat. You will be transported and the achievement will unlock. This achievement is hard to miss.

 Party Pooper (20 points)
Pop 5 balloons in a row without touching ground

This can be done on Las Vegas 1: Jackpot. You'll want to start off the combo by hitting the two balloons that float extremely closely together (touching) and then hit another 3 that will be spawned beneath them

Alternatively you can do this on London 4: Cheers. Near the end of the level there will be a large amount of balloons to jump on making it easier to pop 5 in a row without hitting the water.
